Hello there

Recently I've got a intense itch, and I dont know what it could be, I've been reading up on the internet site and I narrowed it down to Scabies and heat rash...

They come pretty close, but I'm still not totally sure, hopefully someone can help me identify it...

Here are my symptoms

Desciption of my rash
Usually its red, but now its starting to turn to a darker color (Bownish-blackish)

Location of rashes
neck, inner thigh, armpit, butttocks and groin(the base of the scotum)

Extra info
pimples at the thigh, hands, and arms.
It is mostly itch during the night time.

And once identified, can someone please tell me some tips that helped them get over it?
Thank-you for all who replies

  • sounds like scabies. i had it once and the only way you can get rid of them is by going to the dr he will give you a cream which you put on all over your body neck on down before bed two times a week. they are just tiny little mites that burrow in your skin. good luck
