    I think I might have scabies. I came back from a trip to South East Asia mid-July. While waiting for my luggage at the airport I felt intense itch on the buttocks and I can feel the large welts even through my jeans. I didn't think too much of it because I thought it could be just mosquito bite....

  • cured!!!! 100% real story/my story!!!

    This is my story. I am not completely sure how I got it or if I ever really had it. I did what some people might have also done, self diagnosed.
