About 10 months ago I was exposed to and diagnosed with scabies. I believe I was exposed to it through a sexual encounter. I was given Permethrin cream and over several weeks they eventually went away. However, the following few months afterwards, I noticed the sudden appearance of small brown spots all over my body (trunk, legs, arms, face, etc.). They just look like small moles and in no way bother me. It just seemed odd to me that I would get so many brown spots (40+) in such a short period of time. Could this be some kind of pigmentation change from having scabies? There also is a history of melanoma in my family, so this came to mind as a cause for concern? Any insight would be appreciated.
especially in his buttocks around 4 or 5 round coin sized spots, 2 on his right foot, one on his left arm and two bigger ones just where the kidneys are is like drawing where they are, no symptoms, just there, Doctor thought they were fungus but after 4 days with the treatment is not working, everything still the same....What can it be? I don know if I should worry or not :(. Please help!
