  • Post-scab dermatitis

One of the most common mistakes in the treatment of scabies
there is excessive use of scabies ointments, solutions,
therefore, in the future, the patient may develop postskabiozny

does the patient think this?  The drug is not effective, it is necessary
change because the pathogen has turned out to be resistant to it and repeats
a course of therapy with a different drug.

After the new course, itching becomes even more intense, even
there are new rashes that are postskabiosnoe
dermatitis. However, it can arise not only from excessive
treatment, but also from the standard treatment regimen – in individuals prone to
allergic dermatosis, with hypersensitivity to benzyl benzoate
or other drugs.

up to 1 cm in size, sometimes with a bloody crust. Most often nodules
localized in the inguinal folds, the inner thighs,
armpit, in the navel. It usually arises from excess
treatment, against the background of therapy with 2 drugs consistently.

With this nodular scabies, a combined treatment is carried out:
in the morning, apply hydrocartisone ointment 1%, in the evening – sulfur ointment,
also required the appointment of sedatives and antiallergic
drugs. Scabious lymphoplasia after treatment may persist
within a month.
