Scabies is a contagious skin disease, with severe side effects if the wrong line of treatment is chosen. Diarrhea is one such side effect.
A person suffering from Scabies displays a red rash and complains of severe itching. So severe can be the discomfort, that it can depress the patient and disrupt his normal life to a large extent.
The Scabies mites keep burrowing under the skin in order to lay eggs and in turn cause the symptoms.
Now that you have a fair idea of the disease, the urgency to choose the right treatment as soon as possible, can be better understood.
1. Delay Is Not Advisable
Treatment for Scabies should be started soon or else the mites keep burrowing and make the torture unbearable. Patients can either go for over the counter pesticide based treatments that might lessen the itch, but whether they will be able to eradicate the infestation is questionable.
2. Beware Of Prescription Creams
Most prescription creams might kill the Scabies mite in some cases, but can in fact provide no relief from the itching or even make it worse in some cases. They are not safe for children or effective. There are conflicting reports on whether they can be passed on through breast milk or not. Most breastfeeding mothers are told to avoid them.
3. Side Effects of Prescription Pills
The prescription pills can kill the mites but provide no relief from the itching. They should only be had after prescribed by a doctor. They can cause the side effects of severe diarrhea, seizures, vomiting and nausea. To avoid any such complications go for a natural product like Dr. Scabies.
