Young girl has lesions confined to hands c severe itching for more than 2 weeks.Pls comments.


Scabies with Secondary bacterial infection. Streptococcal coverage..... Amoxyclav or Amoxycillin +Dicloxacillin or 1st /2nd Gen Cephalosporin. Once infection is gone then treat with Permethrin 5% cream neck to toe applications for 12 hrs f/b hot rubbed bath to ensure dislodging of mites. Tab Ivermectin 200 micrograms per kg body wt (maximum of 12 mg) single dose at bed time. Tab Levocetrizine 5mg BD for 2-3 days then 1 ODPC for 5 days to reduce itching. Simultaneously treat all the family members. Clean all the used clothes. Tell her that rashes may persist for few days even after successful treatment.

Thanks a lot Sir
