hi this is my first time posting here, but i recently found out that i have scabies. i took my girlfriend to a dingy hotel and i believe that i got it from one of the towels, or laying on the mattress. she is fine, however, my penis itches like crazy! i started to develop small red bumps under my arms, around my nipples, and on my penis. not my pubic hair, balls or thighs, just my penis. at first, i thought it was a yeast infection that i got from my girl, but i was wrong. i have already taken that cream that you put all over your whole body for 12hrs, but i need to know what things should i refrain from doing for the next week or so. does anyone know if i can still have sex? should i put lotion on the area that are infected with scabies? it still burns when i do. are there any kinds of foods that i should avoid? will i spread it by scratching? any and all advice is welcomed
HOW DO I TREAT SCABIES????
I'd avoid sex until it's all gone away, because you could still pass it on to someone else as long as any mites are alive. Scabies should go away quite quickly once you've killed the mites, which you can do with any insecticide. Insect repellent that contains pyrethrins is a good low-cost treatment. I'd avoid using anything else that might displace the insecticide. The itching should go away very quickly as the mites get killed.
If you have scabies the Doc can give you a lotion that will kill the mites on one application.
