My elderly step-father was admitted to hospital earlier today via ambulance as an emergency after seeing his local Orthodox G.P. The G.P diagnosed him after a blood test with streptococci infection He has acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis. ( affecting function of kidneys and extreme fluid build up in both legs ) and is going down hill rapidly. I am not a qualified practioner but am astute enough in the area of health ( natural alternative safe methods ) to recognise that the cause for his condition is Norwegian scabies, ( a virulent form of ordinary scabies ) he has all the classic symptoms. As this ailment so often goes undiagnosed for weeks I very desperately need some professional back up in my diagnosis. My step fathers life could well depend on it. I do not wish to contact either the G.P in question or the hospital myself as I am sure at best I will get little response and be patronised due to lack of official qualification. Has anyone any advice ? There is nowhere to turn and the longer my step-father is in hospital being treated with all their harsh chemicals, when they do not even know what they are treating. The more serious will be the outcome. I urgently need any advice out there. Pip.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
