In march this year when I was in hospital, I got itchy rash between my legs and spread all over my body. The itching was horrendous - like something out of this world. I did a Google search and diagnosed myself with severe scabies infestation. I had near boiling showers three to four times a day with strong shampoo drenched my entire body with methylated spirits. My scabies got worse and another google search informed me that I was being attacked and bitten by evil spirits!
Finally desperation drove me to see my poor doctor who admitted she had never seen anything like it and sent me to a dermatologist. My poor dermatologist had never seen anything like it either. He examined me all over with a powerful magnifying glass and performed a swab test. I tested negative for scabies or anything horrible. The diagnosis was ECZEMA. He said my four showers a day and methylated spirits treatment were making it worse. He ordered me to have a MAXIMUM of ONLY ONE shower a day and I had to have tricortone ointment rubbed into my entire body twice a day.
Moral is - do not consult Dr Google. Go to a proper doctor and get the proper tests done. If you go treating eczema with scabies treatment, you will only get worse and worse
