I recently bought decorative pillows from Walmart. Immediatly my body became itchy, although my scalp did not, and I used them as a head pillow. Several days later, my skin continues to itch, even away from the home, right after a shower. I have just gotten a few bites. Literally 3. I can see NOTHING to the naked eye. HELP ! What is this?
Ask the doctor if you could now have scabies... perhaps someone who had these bugs handled the pillows at Walmart & transferred some to the pillows.
I caught them myself because my grandma had some people in her house who had them. We never saw the scabies, just itching and bites. Elomite prescribed from a doctor for use on everyone of our family who came in contact/lived together had to be used and all clothes, bed linens, etc had to be washed with hot water.
