Random scabs appearing on legs, thighs, feet and buttocks
For the last few months or so random scabs have been appearing on my legs, thighs, tops of my feet, and buttocks. One appeared on my arm but it healed. Most recently, a small, black, round scab appeared on my right leg. They are not from injuries - I have not injured myself at all in the past few months. I am wondering what they could possibly be. Could it be eczema, or something else? Has anyone else experienced something like this?
From the sites, body lice should be ruled out. Scabies is another possibility but it effects the hands more. Scabs can be due to unknowingly scratching at night. Treatment for both is the same. Wash the Clothing, bedding, and towels in hot water and dry them in sun after machine drying them. Topical permethrin or Lindane cream may be needed which are available by prescription only.
I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated so as to confirm the diagnosis.
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 dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
