Baby is itching her skin so much its bleeding, and I need input! *PIC*
So it all started last weekend.. After doing some running around Miss Joelle, (15 months old) who seems to have the same public pooping issue her daddy does, let it all loose, all over her clothes and diaper. Of Course she was happy to get it all out (who wouldn't be after holding it in all day, lol) but the moment I took her clothes off of her to clean her up she started clawing at her arms, so hard welts started popping up. I thought maybe she was just sweaty and itchy, so I gave her a bath, clean clothes and all that and put her to bed.. Next day I get her out of bed and she starts clawing again. After baths and lots of lotion she stops, and yesterday it looked like it looks like its getting better, til she woke up from her nap looking like this
So I called her Dr and we got her in this morning. Her Dr seems to think she has SCABIES!! but after a ton of googling all day I dont think it is..
A) She hasn't been in contact with anyone with scabies, ever, 100% of her day is with me and her 2 older sisters (ages 2 and 3) while oldest sister (age 6) is at school and daddy is at work. None of us have this rash. We rarely go places other than the store (2 year old has infantile scoliosis and is in a cast, so long trips out of the house are just to much for her)
B) Scabies is generally in the hands, feet, girly parts (or manly parts, lol) and butt, in all the cracks between toes and fingers, but hers is just on her arms and a bit on her thighs
C) there is no bug bites, bumps, or blister looking spots on her, just some dry skin and scratches, everything you see on the pic was done by her and those claws..
Sooo, have any of you had scabies lol.. Does this look/sound like what you had? Or does it look like anything you have dealt with before? Dr gave her some cream I have to rub all over her body and leave on for 8 hours, plus some benadryl for the itching, so we are going to try that but I honestly don't believe it will help... Any thoughts?? Oh, and she has no other symptoms, just itching, no fever, cold, nothing.. She is the same happy girl she always is until she get her clothes off, then she scratches like crazy..
