Thanks. Are they painful or itchy or both? How long have you had them for? Do you have a rash on the rest of your body? Are you in a relationship or had a new sexual partner recently? Do they have any similar symptoms?

Thank you. Ok. Your history and pictures are very strongly suggestive of scabies.

The best way to treat scabies is with permethrin cream. You can get permethrin 5% lotion over the counter. However everyone in the house needs to apply the cream head down to the toes, twice, a week apart, as per instructions in this website below.

http://dermnetnz.org/arthropods/scabies.html

In addition, to help with the itch, I would recommend the following:

1. Calamine lotion applied 3-4 times a day

2. Cortisone cream applied twice a day

3. Benadryl tablets 6hrly as required, to stop the itch.

This is nothing serious and should clear up with treatment.

Hope this helps. Do keep me posted & get back if you have any further questions or feel that I have missed out anything. I will be here to provide ongoing advice as necessary. Please do not hesitate to ask. Best wishes.

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.
