Hello and welcome to HCM

The chief complaint that are you are suffering from is itching on your hands and feet since four weeks.
You are being treated with anti-scabies medication with little effect.
Scabies is a clinical diagnosis which can be confirmed by examination of the skin scrapings from the lesions which are more often between the fingers and toes.
Is anyone else suffering from same problem in the family?
If yes then it is most propably scabies.
For complete treatment of scabies, whole family has to be treated.
The beddings and clothings also need to be treated with medication.
In case these measures are not taken then it leads to incomplete treatment.

Please consult your treating doctor for confirmation of the lesion to be scabies or to look for some other skin lesion causing such intense itching.

Thanks and take care
