Brief Answer: Incomplete treatment Detailed Answer: Hi, It looks like you had an incomplete treatment of scabies earlier. You should have continued for a week. Do you have fluid filled sores that itch? They are significant in scabies, else we should consider other possibilities as well. Scabies can recur easily after incomplete therapy and this time it has to be extended treatment. At this juncture instead of doing a trial I suggest to XXXXXXX the local primary care doctor and complete the treatment. If it confirms scabies you need isolation and very good hygiene. Thank you.

Yes please! My 12 year old son was finally diagnosed with scabies after being misdiagnosed for months that he had eczema. I am very upset and worried that my 13 month old has to use that toxic cream. Are there safer natural remedies? Can she use a sulfur ointment? I read that is safer for pregnant women and babies.
