Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Scabies is a transmissible ectoparasite skin infection.

Transmission of the scabies mites involves close person-to-person contact of the skin-to-skin variety.

Following will help you greatly:

· Take anti histamine medication like tab.Citrizan 10 mg

· Apply Nix in a 1% creme-rinse liquid.Both of these are available as over the counter(OTC) without prescription & will help you greatly.

· Wash linens and bedclothes in hot water. Because mites don't live long away from the body, it is not necessary to dry-clean the whole wardrobe, spray furniture and rugs.

If still after this,the symptoms of itching/scabies persists,then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications like ivermectin will then be required accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

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.
