Well, kind of.... years ago I had scabies. No idea where I got em. I was around 21 and after staying up all night cracking out on video games I realized I was kinda itchy. I became really itchy, I went to a skin doctor and they told me I was just allergic to something. Funny, because I couldn't remember really being allergic to anything in quite a while. I was talked into other services. Then my boyfriend started to get itchy then his brother as well. After a few more doctors, one recognized scabies. Topical pesticide prescribed. I found an over the counter enzyme syrup that you coat you body in that was quite alleviating. Nature's Best. Heal your skin. Hope for recognition to treat faster!
