Thread: Scabies?

    Default Scabies?

    Hey guys, have a question regarding a few possible diagnoses. I have had an itch for the past few weeks, and I'm pretty sure it's either Scabies or a reaction a medicine I started taking around then (Pantoprazole). The itch matches the description of Scabies, and the only info I've gotten from possible side effects/reactions to the medicine are a general itch. The dermatologist did not find anything for Scabies under the microscope, but gave me stuff to treat for it anyway. I haven't started this, as I went off the medicine soon after to test if it was that. I have not had conclusive results - I thought it was going away a bit, but I'm not sure if it's been significant enough to begin to conclude anything. Here are some pictures of a new point of itch on my hand. My question is how conclusive would you say it could be scabies? If it's decently sure I'll just start the medicine now, the itch is pretty annoying.

    scabies is caused by a mite and is contagious. these mites burrow under your skin and reproduce. use the medicine to kill them. wash your sheets and bedding in hot water. the word dermatitis is the word for any kind of unknown skin rash.

    Scabies is a skin disease caused by infestation. Scabies mites are very sensitive to their environment. They can only live off of a host body for 24-36 hours. Sexual contact is the most common form of transmission among young people.
