Customer Question

I have a rash that started on my ankles/feet, it appeared as tiny bumps, nonstop itching to the point where I am covered in scabs that would bleed. Didn't prevent me from itching. This morning I woke up with it all over my stomach. Not sure if it's the same thing. It appears as tiny red bumps, slightly different from the one on my legs.

Hi, Dr. Mo here with JA. Please let me review the information and I'll reply shortly.

Your rash is consistent with scabies both in the distribution and the intensity of the itching.

This usually requires topical treatment with permethrin 5% if you are in the US or oral medications if you are in Europe or Australia.
