General & Family Physician Dr. Malligai. E's  Response
This condition rashes and itching can be due to insect bite or worm infestation or eating food which is not tolerated by you, or it may be due to some drug. You can take some anti histamines. All time favorite is tab. Avil 25 mg. It is having sedation property hence don't drive or operate machinery at work place. Apply the Caladryl lotion on the affected part. You can take anti helminthitic like tab. Albendazole after checking your stools at lab. If it is not coming down or if it spreads meet a physician immediately.

Hi.. It could be an eczematous reaction.. Continue benadryl.. Skin soothening lotions such as lactocalamine are effective.. If these products are not helping, then you may need topical steroid preparations which is the choice of medications. But beware,  steroids may have to be started only after you see a doctor...

Why I can see worms in my urine when I go to toilet?
At the beginning( 2 months ago) I had the feeling as really itchy around my anus so I went to see the doctor and I got 400mg of Zentel to take for 1 day, as I told doctor that I think I have pinworm and they didn't fine anything in my stool. The symtoms of itchy was gone after took 1 pill of zentel, but still feel a bit during the day so I took another pill of Zentel following next week. b
But I still could feel during the day ( That was in January) So in February, 2 weeks later, I went to see another doctor when I was traveling and she gave me 400mg of Zentel to take for 3 days, as she said these will treat any type of worms. So I thought that will be the end. Finally, I have the rash on my hands and the feeling in my anus is better but still on. So after 2 weeks doctor gave me vermox to take as 100mg twice a day for 3 days (so in February 3 days of Zentel once a day and follow with vermox 3days in 2 weeks later). Until now starting in March, I am hopeless because It seems like vermox does not work at all as I feel stronger in my anus during the day and feel a lot in the evening. And the worse thing is every time when I go to toilet I see some of small very very thin and tiny white things 1-3mm long in my urine. I am so depress as the doctor said I should be cured after 2 times of that medicine. So they asked me to do only stool exam and I guess they will see nothing again and I can not suffer of this feeling and the thing I see in my urine anymore. I am also scared if I have strongyloidiasis or not because why after I took Zentel for 3 days and my symptom is still on.......I don't know what can I do...hopeless and I think I will not go to see the doctor again and will buy Albendazole to take once a day for 3 days and repeat again in 2 weeks, but I am also scared that I may took too much already so is it will be harmful if I will buy Albendazole to take again for 3 days and repeat in 2 weeks? Please help me and give me some info. please
