From the intensity of itching, scabies is an important possibility to be ruled out. 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.
You should change the bed linen, your clothes and wash them in hot water and dry them in sun. You can also use medicated soaps as well for bathing. He should be isolated so not to pass the disease to others. Personal hygiene is needed. You should see for any nearby pet infected with it too which can be the cause of transmission of disease. Low immunity can as well cause such problem. Take multivitamins along with the treatment. Don't scratch the area.
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.
I have the SAME exact thing. I've tried it all - sulfur soap, tea tree soap, oatmeal, epson salt...
It's either fungus or some sort of eczema.
I have like 3 different style bumps, though - tiny pink bumps on hands and fingers, dry (ringworm-like) bumps on my upper arms, and tiny pin ***** bumps on my stomach.
I ordered dermazinc soap from amazon hoping it will help :p
Thank you for taking the time out to answer. After a week of having the marks still present (itching comes and goes), I went to the dermatologist and he seems to think the hives themselves are caused by either Scabies or Dust Mite bites. I am going to try one use of Permitin Cream tomorrow for 12 hours and see if that does the trick. If not, I'll have to go back in for testing. He also thinks the rash on my butt is unrelated and he tiptoed around "ringworm" as the cause and thinks it's more of an allergic reaction to Wipes (which I use over toilet paper) and that dry skin is the major problem. I am using Cetaphil Restoraderm Cream and Body Wash for the dry skin on my body.
I will keep you posted on the end results. If it works, I will gladly share the treatment story with others in hopes others will be cured. I myself did a ton of research and one thing I was able to link to it that the Dermatologist never mentioned was "Winter's Itch". One of the symptoms was Hive breakouts. Any possibility this could be the issue if not Scabies?
