... go along with scabies: swollen lymph nodes, muscle pain that moves around. PA gave me a prescription for some cream and Keflex 500 mg 4 times a day. I only have two places. One on each arm
hi. keflex is usually given for bacterial infection. cellulitis or infection of or under the skin. scabies cause you to itch terribly and when you scratch, you open up your skin to outside bacteria. the infection probably caused your nodes to inflame. encountered many scabies patients and never seen these symptoms. im sure your bacterial infection had cleared. i hope that cream eradicated your mites as well.
