My daughter is suffering from what appears to be a severe case of Scabies. Her cousin brought it back from New Zealand and shared it. Oral Ivermectin is not available in Canada but this is what she feels she needs. Other methods have not gotten rid of it. She is really suffering.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: She has been to a couple doctors. Has used 5% permethrin
a few times, but has not gotten rid of it. It helps but has not gotten rid of it. Managed to get 3 doses of oral ivermectin, which really helped but seems to need a longer course of this medication. Doctor is not amenable to prescribing it as not available in Canada.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I do not think she takes daily medicines. I will have to ask her what she is allergic to. Penicillin
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, just that she seems to react quite strongly to such things as infestations, bites, etc. Has very high anxiety about this condition because she can't get rid of it. Has been off work for 4 weeks.
