I went to Vegas for a few days came back and I was very itchy on the back of my upper legs. At first nothing and then it looked like razor burn which I knew it wasn't as I not shave there. Then little skin colored bumps appeared. I went to er and one told me I had scabies I used the cream. It started to spread went back and 2 doctors told me that it wasn't scabies.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
