  • my mother in law was treated for itching rash with antihistamines, they did no good and she continued scratching until they wanted to give her a neurological drug , saying the scratching was obsessive compulsive.I objected as the rash was in places she couldn't reach to scratch, finally they found it to be Norwegian scabies! the cream they had prescribed actually spread the scabies worse...if the rash issue is not resolved you might ask to be checked for scabies.
