Customer Question

I have an itchy red rash under my arms, under breasts, on inner elbows, stomach, and inner thigh and neck. I have been the doctor three times two different doctors. They say it is an allergic reaction or dermatitis. Gave steroid shot & steroid to take orally & anti fungal cream for rash. I don't itch nearly as much & there are no new red bumps. I think I have scabies but both doctors say no. Should I go withwhat they think pr should I still be worried it is scabies? No one in my family has these symptoms..yet, just me.

What exactly does the rash look like? How long have you had it?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Red bite like bumps in the areas & welts. I have had it for about a week & a half

OK. Doesn't sound like scabies, but it would be a simple matter to try Nix or prescription permethrin cream to see if that resolves this. It could be a yeast skin infection that is resistent to the antifungal cream so I would give your oral Diflucan to see if that resolves it. I also would have you take an antihistamine like Zyrtec or Claritin at the same time.
