  • It's definately not freckles, right? Freckles on the nose is the most common place, and often is a result of sun exposure. If you're getting too much sun, it might explain the itching as well (dry skin).You might be allergic to something, it could be bedbugs or mites, etc.

  • No they are not freckles, they look brown to start and then turn red along with a red area around the outside of the nose. Someone said I could be allergic to mites thats what I think they are or sometype of fungus. Not sure.

  • A simple scraping of one of the spots with examination under a microscope should tell you if it is scabies or not. If they haven't scraped it, it would be hard to tell.

  • I went to at least three dermatologists and finally the fourth one I saw diagnosed me with scabies, and prescribed the cream. Within a day or two I was feeling all better. I had scabies on my face and arms and legs. It itches like crazy in warm temperature. Blow a fan on your face, or apply a cold compress, if that relieves the itching it may be scabies. Just get yourself over to a very experienced dermatologist. Mine took one look at me and announced, 'scabies!'

  • I went thru this and actually got rid of it...crawling sensation on my face daily.....itchy hands. Over many months it got worse.. crawling all over my head and face and slowly started moving down my body where I started feeling pin *****s. Doctors no help, couldn't find any bugs, long story kept short: My cats which go in and out of the house freely, got mange, I told my vet about the symptoms and she's had it before and it was scabies. Problem is docs couldn't find it because I was always fighting the symptoms and self treating. Shower with menthol selsum blue, bathe with ammonia in the water - kicked scabies behind! Buy tubes of permethrin and Eurax cream online and used both at the same time added clove oil to it sometimes. Ate horse ivermectin. Great relief BUT..Kept getting reinfested, couldn't clean enough, so following vets directions, I left pesticide bombs all over the house and moved out for 3 wks. Kept treating with perm and cleaned new empty apartment daily. Cured!
