thanks for posting your query to health care magic .
you can send me picture of your lesion .first you should confirm your diagnosis weather it is scabies or some other infection . I wanted to know also what medication you have taken so far for this problem . If proper treatment is not taken, scabies may get infected secondarily and in such cases along with treatment of scabies you need to take antibacterial infecion also .
you can contac to dermatologist for making a diagnosis and taking correct treatment .
thanks .
feel free to contact .
