Any between the webs of your fingers? If so then scabies, if not flea bites. Bomb the house, use hydrocortisone on the lesions. If thy till itch, ask doc for triminolone .

Thanks, there is one or two between the webs of the fingers, but I get those from time to time either way. I have some triamcinalone acetenoid I think it says, some kind of steroidal ointment for that, which I have been using somewhat on the bad spots. Last night it was extremely bad right on the backs of the knees, there seems to be some bites there but I can't really see the back of my knees so I'm not sure. I might have been scratching at it.

It seems to be coming and going. For a good week there it was fine and everything was healing up then within the last day it seems to be picking up again. Though after putting the kombucha all over it and waiting a while the feeling goes away. It's like I can literally feel something digging into me. But sometimes I think it's weird because I'll feel it on opposite sides of the body in the same spot at the same time which makes me think that is a strange coincidence, but it isn't always like that.

If you we're my patient I would treat you for scabies. It's a topical cream. You should call your doc for a prescription. The steroid cream will help the itching but not get rid of it. When I was an intern, we did a rotation at the VA and I saw another intern's pt for a rash that turned out to be scabies. It's contagious and the other intern developed it while on his honey moon.

Thanks, I appreciate your response. Ok I'll have to give a call for an appt. NY in its infinite, protect our residents from themselves wisdom, won't allow a Dr to prescribe anything unless they've seen the patient in person within the last year.

Today wasn't too bad, not any real burrowing detected at all.
