Thank you for coming back online.
The symptoms you have described of having severe itching all over body,feeling like something is bitting you,feeling of pin pricks since last few nights is suggestive of a condition called scabies.
This scabies is quite common in people living in poor living conditions and as you have to be in contact of such people as part of your job,this seems to be the probable cause.
Scabies is a transmissible ectoparasite skin infectionTransmission of the scabies mites involves close person-to-person contact of the skin-to-skin variety.
Following will help her greatly:
-Take anti histamine medication like tab.Citrizan 10 mg
-Apply Nix in a 1% creme-rinse liquid.Both of these are available as over the counter(OTC) without prescription & will help her greatly.
-Wash linens and bedclothes in hot water. Because mites don't live long away from the body, it is not necessary to dry-clean the whole wardrobe, spray furniture and rugs.
If still after this,the symptoms persists,then you need to make an appointment with your dermatologist for the prescription of cream containing 5% permethrin, which is left on the skin overnight and then washed off.In most cases single treatment is sufficient enough,occasionally a second treatment a week later may be required.Sometimes oral prescription medication like ivermectin may be required.Both are available as prescription from your doctor.
Usually & most probably the OTC medications described above subside the itching completely.
Hope this helped.
