I am having an itchy rash that will clear up then show up somewhere else. I was worried it was scabies that I might have gotten in the locker room at the gym. Other than that I don’t know where I would have gotten it if that is what it is. I have been to three doctors. First was at urgent care that didn’t hardly look at it. Second was my personal physician that looked but did not think it was scabies. She put me on prednisone for 10 days. It cleared up and I felt great. It came back about a week after the last treatment. She then referred me to a dermatologist. He looked at my whole body and said it was eczema. I am middle-aged and never had it before so I found that hard to believe. He said it did not look like scabies. He gave me augmented betamethasone. It helps clear up the spots but I keep getting new ones. I get them below one breast, some on waistline, on shoulder blade. I had a small itchy spot on foot but it never developed much once I put the cream on. Latest is on buttock/leg area (underwear line). What makes me wonder if I am going crazy is my husband has not had any itching (it’s been six weeks for mine). Also, I do not have anything on hands, wrists, webbing of toes which I know are common scabies area. I also have itching on my hair line and in my scalp which I know would not be common. The itching bothers me all day long, but at night I sleep well. I have been taking a sleeping pill for insomnia for years, but it doesn’t make me sleep that soundly if something is bothering me. My skin seems extremely sensitive lately also. I just don’t know if I should relax about this or pursue it more. Thanks for any comments and suggestions.
