Hi all. I hope you guys can shed some light on my situation, since I am unclear if I have scabies or not..
2 days ago I assisted my grandmother in putting Permerthrin cream all over her body (with gloves) because of her scabies diagnosis. I removed my clothing in an attempt to avoid the spread of a bug coming on my clothes. I was not aware at the time that these scabies mites are microscopic and could be spread to skin-to-skin contact.
So yesterday, I had no symptoms except at night, when I was going to sleep. I felt a crawling and light itching throughout my body, on my legs, toes, and groin (and slightly on neck). I had no bumps except the red, inflammed bump on my hand, that I woke up with and was not aware of scratching. Now, I notice track lines on my legs and arm, but I am not sure if this is scabies! (did the ink test, only one of them stayed but the line is not irregular). There is conflicting data on what consistutes as scabies, so I included pictures to be sure.
I have put Permerthrin cream on my whole body, and rubbing alcohol on my scalp and body as well. I am in the process of washing and drying all the clothes I used, as well as bedding. I am unsure of what to do next and by being sure of the diagnoses, I can take the necessary next steps to get this pesky problem eradicated!
Thanks for your help!
