Brief Answer:
Further investigations are recommended.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I understand your concern.

Since you have not responded to standard medication like antihistaminics and anti scabies agents, I advise you to get an ultrasound of the liver and complete liver function tests.

Additionally I also recommend blood tests for Uric acids and Bile acids.

Further management is based on the test results.

Get the tests and update me with test results.

Post your further queries if any.

Thank you.

I have cleaned and washed Everything in my house, I even used lice shampoo on my hair and body before I went to doctor afraid I had scabies. I m afraid to tell my doctor or show him this stuff, caz from all I read about Morgellans, doctors don t even believe it exists! What should I do?

hi, my stepdaughter is 5 and the past couple months, has been dealing with very itchy skin. she is only at our house every other weekend, but the last week, myself and my daughter who is 3 have started itching also. her mother took her to the doctor and said a prescription cream was given. i asked her today what the name of the cream was because i m taking my daughter in to be seen by her own doctor, and i figured he d want to know, but she won t tell my husband and i what it was. she got defensive and wanted to know why we needed to know. all she said was it was a one-time application and she didn t remember the name because she threw it away after it was used. the only medication that i can find which is a one-time treatment is for scabies...is there any other ones that might be used for treating eczema? i m worried we got scabies from her and that our itching is related to her issue

I have a strange rash at 3-4 places around the abdomen. Very itchy at times and fine at others. There is a burn like crust on 3 of them. I m worried that this could be scabies or other bugs? The pa thinks it may be an allergic reaction to something I wore but I don t really agree.She s prescribed desoximetaone 0.25% for it.
