Hi

The symptoms you have are suggestive of medical condition -Scabies.It is caused by a tiny mite (Sarcoptes scabiei).

The treatment of choice at the moment is Permethrin.This should be left on for at least eight hours.

Benzyl benzoate emulsion. This is washed off after twenty four hours, and repeated two or three times.

This process takes about two weeks and therefore the itch continues for about two weeks after the treatment

You can also take Antihistaminic -Tab Levocetrizine once a day .

Consult your Physician for presribing these medications

Thanks

Take Care

Hi,
The medical experts at JA have asked me to help out...
What you are suffering from are the classical symptoms of a controversial disease called the MORGELLONS disease
While many doctors are not convinced that this disease is anything more than a delusion of parasitosis (meaning all in the mind), there is a growing body of patients and a few doctors that are trying to help out.
So much so that the CDC has actually formed a task force to try to unravel the cause of this disease.
The protocol to be followed in your case would be to the following ..
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) , physicians who have patients suspected of having Morgellons disease, should engage the public health system in the following way:
The physician should contact the county health department and inform them that they have a patient suspected of having Morgellons disease, etiology unknown. The county health department should then contact the state health department, who will in turn inform the CDC about the patient in question.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
