Customer Question

About a month ago I had these little red bumps pop up , I had scabies and when it started to spread these bumps popped up. They itch a little but my doctor said they are not due to scabies (it looks like) I currently have four. 3 on the shaft and one on the under of my testicles. They would decrease in size but increase if irritated .

Is it something bad ???
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 2 years ago.

It looks like nodular scabies.

Have you put steroids on the area?

This is a reaction to the mite.

Have you taken any antihistamines till now?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No I have not , I just used the cream they told me to use for the scabies infestation . Nothing else. What should I do?
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 2 years ago.

I would suggest you to take over the counter Claritine 10 mg twice a day for 10 days .

Apply Cortizone based lotion called Cortaid on the area twice a day for 10 days.

Repeat the scabies application on the full body after 15 days.

Do you Agree with what i have mentioned?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It makes sense yes, it would explain the scratching in some places where I have no marks. I did a little research also and others have the same symptoms as me in the same area. Thank you
