Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us.

I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.

Only a few arthropod infestations are of significance in humans - louse (lice), mite (scabies mite) or blood-sucking bugs (bed bugs) and rarely ticks and fleas.

The diagnosis is mainly clinical and treatment is usually quite effective.

However, other skin conditions e.g prurigo, neurodermatitis etc may be confused with common parasitic infestations like scabies and therefore warrants attention in those who do not respond to usual parasitic treatments.

I request you to kindly upload a few images of the affected skin in " Report section " so that I can be able to guide you better

Awaiting...

Regards
