Hello,
Sulfa soaps are not the exact treatment of scabies. The usual treatment of scabies is topical permethrin. It is the most effective scabicidal medication. Usually applied overnight and repeated weekly once for 2-3 weeks. To be effective, the medication has to act on the superficial layers where the mite and its larvae reside. Permethrin and oral ivermectin are the best treatment options of scabies.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hello,
Norwegian scabies is a severe form of scabies and is also called as crusted scabies. It is mostly found in individuals with compromised immune system and thus allowing for the infestation of an individual with hundreds of thousands of the mites. Lesions are found all over the body and may spread all over the body. The elbows, knees, palms, scalp, and soles of the feet are most commonly the original sites of involvement, and the scaly areas eventually take on a wart-like appearance.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
