Symptoms and Treatment of Scabies

Symptoms and Treatment of Scabies

Infestation on the skin caused by a tiny insect called Sarcoptes scabiei, which live on the skin up to 2 months, is called Scabies. Reproduction occurs on the surface of the skin and later they tunnel into the skin and lay eggs. This forms an extremely irritated, pimple-like rash structure on the skin.

Despite the fact that scabies can be troublesome, the infestation can usually be dealt with successfully. Treatment commonly comprises of drugs that eliminate the scabies parasites and their eggs. Since scabies is so infectious, specialists usually prescribe treatment for a whole gathering of individuals who come in successive contact with people having scabies.

Symptoms: Typical symptoms such as rashes and intense itching, appear up to 6 weeks since initial exposure. Infected sores, which may require additional treatment, are formed due to continuous scratching. Common sites for occurrence in babies are head, neck, face and hands while in adults, it occurs on the wrist, elbow, waist, penis, armpits, etc. The rash comprises of small blisters or pimple-like knocks which are the tunnel tracks of the mite apparent on the skin.

A more severe form of the condition, called crusted scabies may be developed in some people. This condition which is highly contagious is marked by thick crusts containing thousands of eggs and mites which developed on the skin. It usually occurs in people with weak immune systems. The mites are capable of overpowering the immune system and multiplying at a higher rate.

Treatment: Typical treatment includes disposing of the infestation with medicine balms, creams, and moisturizers. It is advisable to apply the cream all over the body and at night, when the mites are active.
Amid the main week of treatment, it might appear as though the symptoms are worsening. Nonetheless, after the initial week, you'll see less tingling and you should have recovered by the fourth week of treatment.

Precautions should be taken to prevent re-infestation as the mites are capable of living up to 72 hours after being abolished from the body. All clothing must be washed with hot water (122F). This should be followed by drying of the items at a high temperature for half an hour. Finally, the dried items should be vacuumed.

Steroids are not advisable to tender skin in my opinion. There are pure coconut oil or preparations made thereof which are suitable for babies' skin. Pure organic herbal powder of Rubia cordifolia and curcumin extract 500 mg each may be licked by baby with honey and see safe changes yourself.

My daughter age is 6 years old but she do wet bed in night during sleeping. So please advise treatment.

Diploma in Child Health (DCH), MBBS

Normal bladder control develops only after 6 years of age. So don't worry for now. - avoid sweet drinks or food or frequent water intake after 6 in the evening. -before going to bed and after 1-2 hours of sleep she should empty the bladder - don't scold child for wetting the bed. - bed wetting is seen in children having some fear. So always treat them with love. - if wetted, change the bed sheet without her knowledge. It will build her confidence which will help her to get rid of the problem. -get her blood tested for sugar and do her urine test also. Do not please panic, most of the times it comes normal.

First you ensure that you are giving him adequate water. Then try give foods rich in fibre but not packeted and refined foods. Avoid giving fruit juice, rather give whole fruit like mashed banana, mangoes, chico. Give adequate amount of vegetables with rice (ladiesfinger, pumpkin, oats are good)

If parents have died of aids there are high chances of passing on hiv infection to kids. If tridot blood test done for kids at 6 months of age, will give status of infection. As tests done early in life may give false positive results. Regarding passing on to next generation, it's very difficult to have these positive kids grow up get married and have kids. If kids are non infective with hiv infection then also chance of passing on to next gereartion is zero.

Thanks for the question, please provide his food pattern in detail so that we can know what to suggest exactly. Till then you can try to know his need what he wants. Either he do not prefer to eat food or he did not like the food. What he prefers more like sweets, spicy, salted, or sour etc. Try to avoid conflicts at the time of food. No tv during meals. Chat on food items how they can be beneficial for our body can bring his interest in food. Please feel free to ask more.

Hello, you should give him Kindival , 2 tabs thrice daily for a good sleep and behaviour. You should develop the practice of spoon feeding because this the best way to avoid unwanted infections. If your baby get used to having a bottle-feed every time he fall asleep, he might develop an association between the bottle and sleep. He might then find it hard to fall asleep without a bottle. There is a risk of tooth decay Milk is quite high in sugar. Soaking your baby’s teeth in it overnight can cause tooth decay. There is a risk of ear infections When a baby drinks lying down, milk can flow through to the ear cavity, which can cause ear infections. Thanks , take care.
