Infant with tiny red papules on finger webs of one hand. Which medicines should be used?

Hi, I am a navy medic and i believe my 1yr son may have scabies . i ve only noticed it this morning but he has tiny red papules in the webs of his fingers on his left hand only. i have no obvious reasons for contact with anything and being 1 he s not complaining of itching. The only cream i have in the house is fucidin but i m reluctant to try that without advice.

Thanks for posting question on HCM
Your son is probably not having scabies ,apply fucidin H cream for 2days ,if not respond then ask for fungal scrapping If comes negative wait for other symptoms to appear in him. Let me know after that.

Hope this will alleviate your anxiety
