Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
I would apply the permethrin cream neck to feet two applications 10 days apart...
It does take some time for the rash and itching to subside...
The symptoms may respond to oral antihistamine ( Zyrtec 10 mg Am and Benadryl 50mg at bedtime would be of help )
Apply a steroid cream ( over the counter 1 percent hydrocortisone ) 3 to 3 times a day to active rash areas
These measures should help If you have scabies ...
Follow up with dermatologist I agree....
3rd application may be tried ...YES to that ..
Post pictures of rash to page if that may be helpful
I will be happy to get back with you
If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback Thank you and Best Regards,
