My grandmother has scabies and I put the premerthrin cream all over her body with gloves. Now its been a day and as soon as I was trying to go to sleep, I feel crawling and a few itches on my body. Especially on legs, groin. I found a red bump on my hand and leg.
What can I do now to get rid of these for good?? Do I have it? Is there any way to know for sure? and can I sleep in the same bed now?
scabiesno; it could just be you and nerves it drives you crazy I used to itch for hours after just filling a prescription for lice or scabies, The only way you can tell is if they start to spread and most the time they are in tight areas like the folds of skin between fingers little red spots you don't want to squeeze them the liquid that comes out is what spreads them more also they well show up like armpits and the fold of your arms and legs first before anywhere else.Don't panic it can just be you thinking of them you just have to wait and see If you start getting the red spots all over you if you don't do anything about hem as soon as they show up where I said the well start. And at this point sleeping in your bed is fine these spread more by sweat etc and are under the skin. Then when you know for sure then you get some of the cream if you need it but not until your sure.
