My 9 year old has had swimmers itch for a week. It was seeming to get better , but now its back with a vengance last night. Her spots are all coming back. I ve tried everything! benedryl , rubbing alcohal on the itch spots, soaked her in epsom salts. Anything I m missing? They look like chicken pox but she is vaccinated and hasnt been exposed.
