Pediculosis,and scabies are inmates in a jail.A single application of permethin helps.Consult your doc.As of now apply calamine,cetizine 1 tab at bedtime.

Hello,
From the symptoms that you have described,it sounds like a contagious disease like scabies. Scabies is an infestation by the itch mite. Scabies produces small red bumps and blisters and affects specific areas of the body.

It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs.

I would suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep us posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
