For over 4 months I have been dealing with this itchy rash. I was dx'd with scabies. No skin scraping was done, just dx'd by the look of the rash. I have treated 3 times and done all the necessary cleaning of my house but it has not gone away. I am not convinced that it is scabies because my child who sleeps in my bed every night has no symptoms and never has. Could it really be or am I being mis diagnosed??
Hard to say if your condition has been misdiagnosed. But yes, as you say if your child doesn't have the same sort of rash than it is extremely unlikely that you have scabies. Perhaps it's an allergy ... please discuss with your doctor and try antihistamines. It won't do any harm in trying this.
Get sulphur soap, I found it at an Asian market. Take baths with Clorox and epsoms salts. Use 2 cups of epsoms salt and about 1/2 cup of Clorox and sit in the tube at least 30 minutes. The baths will definitely stop the itching and should kill the hatching eggs. Do the baths at least every other day. Use sulphur soap with every bath or shower everyday or even twice daily. We have used many tubes of the permethrin cream and feel it did not help. Wash sheets every day in epsoms salts and Borax added to detergent.
