I have several itchy bites on the inside of my thigh and lower

Customer Question

I have several itchy bites on the inside of my thigh and lower stomach, also one on the webbing between my fingers and one inside my navel. They have been there for about a week now and are still very itchy. Any thoughts? I'm worried it might be scabies is there any way to know for sure and there something I can get from the chemist to treat it? Thanks

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this question.

You are correct

This is scabies.

You should be able to get permethrin 5% over the counter for it.

I hope this helps. If you have more questions, just reply. :)
