Scabies-really??

Posted , 1 user is following.

i know this can with be misdiagnosed as scabies or completely missed . I went to a derm that i won't go to again because I do not feel she did a thorough job (no skin scrape) and although it looks like scabies i question the dx because my husband did not aquire this and we sleep in the same bed and he is way pat incubation time and of course there has been skin to akin contact . Because of this, I went to an urgent care and she agreed . It is only on my abdominal area and not on hands/wrist which is SO common for true scabies. Should the scabies be ruled out because what i have does not appear to be contagious as scabies is VERY CONTAGIOUS?
