What causes swelling and itchy sore rash on legs with history of scabies?

My Mom had a form of scabies around her middle as diagnosed by a dermatologist. That was last winter and it hasn t totally cleared up, but now for no reason her legs are very swollen with some bumps on them and she says they are a bit itchy and sore from the swelling. What could be the cause?

Hi,

As the dermatologist diagnosed scabies, the perfect treatment of anti-scabetic permethrin cream and oral Ivermectin 12 mg once a week and antihistamines would improve the condition. So, follow the the treatment suggested by her dermatologist.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
