Almost everyone one living...

Almost everyone one living in my building has treated for scabies but my younger sister doesn't want to treat until tomorrow should we should just treat tonight instead because she's at risk of giving the rest of us scabies again if she doesn't?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yup

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

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.
