In other blogs I have mentioned that Scabies can be very difficult to diagnosis! This is due in part to

the likeness of other skin diseases or skin ailments/ infections. One that comes to mind that looks

very similar is Impetigo. This particular skin infection has the red bumps and rash like appearance and

does appear to some degree like Scabies. In fact, if you have Scabies it is very possible you can contract

Impetigo at the same time of Scabies. Here is how!  Scabies under your skin leave feces after eating your skin

to survive. They also lay eggs in the burrow that together causes ones skin to have an allergic reaction. So now

you have an itchy rash or red bumps and rash together that causes one to scatch. When you do this your fingernails break the skins surface and here is where the bacterial infections like Impetigo get their start.

Impetigo is caused by Staphylococcus aureus which enters the broken skin.

 

Impetigo Scabie comparison

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Impetigo shown in the left side image has a crusty yellow look to the scabs. The Scabies image to the right

has red bumps or a combination of a red rash and red bumps. When closely compared ….there are distinct differences and can be overlooked when examined. Impetigo is highly contagious and can spread to others or other parts of your body. The bacteria is transported under your finger nails and can start its colony where ever there is a opening in the skin. Like if you were to scratch an area that has skin eruptions from Scabies. There are different kinds of Impetigo but the one shown is typically the most common. Please see your Doctor for treatments of this type of skin disorder. Sometimes it can require antibotics or other types drugs to get it under control. Thank you for reading my blog. I really enjoy posting subjects of interest in the effort to educate others on bettering their health. If you should have any comments please feel free to submit your ideas or suggestive improvements.

Translatorvar ackuna_src = "en";SCABIES OR POISON IVY? A BLOG THAT SHOWS YOU THE DIFFERENCE!

 

Scabies is a disease that has many times been diagnosised as something else!

Our skin can have eruptions or allergic reactions that mimic many other types of skin conditions. So while we are

talking about that …lets compare Scabies and Poison Ivy! As most of you know you get Poison Ivy from brushing

up against leaves of the plant while walking, gardening or other activities. It has a very nasty affect to our skin.

Thats if you are allergic to it. I have a friend of mine that is not allergic to it. He has many times won dares to roll in the stuff!

Not me…not ever! I am highly allergic to it and so are most of us out there!

So which one is Scabies and which one is Poison Ivy?

 

 

How Long Does Poison Ivy Take to Heal

Poison ivy rash appears after four hours from exposure to the plant or as long as 10 days, depending upon the sensitivity of the individual to the plant.

 

 

The allergic reaction can be triggered by direct contact with any poison ivy plant part be it the leaf, stem or tendrils as well as indirect contact. The compound urushiol that is found in the plant is very contagious and as such a person can get poison ivy rash merely by getting touching objects like gardening tools and camping equipments that has been contaminated with urushiol. How long does poison ivy last, depends upon the person’s sensitivity and how the urushiol is absorbed in the skin. Generally poison ivy rash lasts for a week or two but in some cases it might take as long as four weeks for the rashes and inflammation to subside. If by any chance the poison ivy plants are burned and the smoke gets into the nasal passages and the rash will appear on the lining of the lungs causing pain and difficulty in breathing. Hope that never happens to anybody. Since the compound urushiol found in poison ivy plants are very active in nature, they can remain even after the plant is dead. So a person has to be extra careful while handling such dead vines as it could possibly cause a poison ivy rash. Urushiol is extremely difficult to get off as it binds on the skin within 10 to 20 minutes The poison ivy rash itself is not contagious but since the affected person feels extremely itchy, it is best to apply calamine lotion and hydrocortisone cream.

So with Scabies….you can apply lotions and Yes the rash will subside for a short period of time.

Because these types of lotions do not kill scabie mites, you will see a return of the rashes or skin eruptions

very soon again.

OK so here is what you have been waiting for!  Did you guess it right?

Scabies is on the right side of the image and Poison Ivy is on the left side.

They really look alike! Poison Ivy does make your skin blistery and seeps or clear liquid.

Scabies normally does not show that kind of symptom! But it does show this!

Notice the line of red bumps upper part

or the wrist. A tell tale sign is that Scabies leaves as a trail or the proper term is called tracks.

Another difference is you will feel scabies moving on your skin and especially at night.

Whereas, with Poison Ivy you do not have these sensations….just a real bad case of the itch.

In either event, both cases are not any fun and most want to be over it as quickly as possible.

We are now giving our Scabies E-book away FREE in an effort to stop this disease

on a global scale. Our mission is to eradicate the Scabies mites much like Polio.

Do your part and share with others so they too can learn how to deal with this

pesky disease.  Please do not forget our sponsers…they can provide many products to assist you

in the eradication process of the Scabie mites.

That it for now… have a good day and stay healthy!

Scabies….how this disease can cause you to get a staph infection (Staphlylococcus aureus).

What is Staphylococcus?        

                       

Over 30 different types of

Staphylococci can infect humans, but most infections are caused by Staphylococcus

aureus. Staphylococci can be found normally in the nose and on the skin

(and less commonly in other locations) of 25%-30% of healthy adults. In the majority of cases, the bacteria do not cause disease. However, damage to the

skin or other injury may allow the bacteria to overcome the natural protective

mechanisms of the body, leading to infection.

THIS IS WHERE SCABIES COMES IN AND CAN HARM YOU IF THIS DISEASE GETS OUT OF

CONTROL!

Staphylococcus is a group of bacteria that can cause a number of diseases

as a result of infection of various tissues of the body. Staphylococcus

is more familiarly known as Staph (pronounced “staff”). Staph-related

illness can range from mild and requiring no treatment to severe and

potentially fatal.

The name Staphylococcus comes from the

Greek staphyle, meaning a bunch of grapes, and kokkos, meaning

berry, and that is what Staph bacteria look like under the microscope, like a

bunch of grapes or little round berries. (In technical terms, these are

gram-positive, facultative anaerobic, usually unencapsulated.

Who is at risk for Staph infections?

Anyone can develop staph infectinos, although certain groups of people are at risk,

including newborn infants, breastfeeding woman, conditions such as diabetes, cancer

vascular disease, and lung disease. Injecting drug users, those with skin injuries or disorders

(scabies comes to mind very quickly) intravenious incisions, and those with weakened immune

systems all have an increased risk of developing staph infections. Staph infection are highly contagious

just like scabies. The only difference is you are not prone to getting staph from clothing like scabies!

The real problem which is causing the medical community concern is the increase in drug resistance

for treatment of this disease. Yes, Scabies are drug resistant to a number of treatments as well.

So that said people….do not take this disease lightly as you can get in real deep trouble. You can

slip away if you get a staph infection. Go resource this some more if you are not certain of this article.

Here is another look under the microscope at staph. Download the Scabie Help E-Book it is for FREE!

Scabies & Retirement homes

Scabies and retirement homes. We all have to visit some time or another to visit a family member or friend in the retirement home. All to often without us knowing there could be trouble lurking. In this case one that you cannot see! So with that said let us talk about what one can do with these situations! First, take a good look at the person you are visiting. Look closely at their hands, elbows and other areas that have folds of skin. These are the likely areas that will show rashes, red itchy bumps or track marks from Scabies. No one really knows for sure why they are attracted to these areas, but one guess is they can burrow in between the creases like it is a ditch just waiting for them. So before you go and hug someone or offer up a hand of love take some precautions and observe before you give contact. This is not meant to be mean in any way. This is meant to keep you from getting infected with a disease or diseases! If you notice symptoms please notify the Manager about this so the person or persons can get treatment for scabies. I would recommend a followup letter sent regarding this so it does not get shoved under the carpet. These people are helpless  and need your assistance in matters like this!  Another thought on this is sitting. When you visit often times you take a seat right away to be at their level. Here is a word of advice to this situation! Bring a small folding chair to sit in. You know the history of your chair and certainly not the history of what is going on in the Retirement home. Who knows who sat where and for how long. Scabies is very very contagious and can be contracted with contact to people or things that they have touched. Avoidance is the number one preventer of getting this disease. During your visit, if a worker is present look them over as well. This could be a leading indicator of what is going on while you are not there. Look for signs or indicators on them too! These days money is extremely tight and proposals to reduce income to these enterprises will without doubt cause these firms to reduce oversight and inact shortcuts. These shortcuts can be numerous and have negative impact on the person’s health you are seeing. Scabies are prominate at these places so please take care when visiting them so you do not become a statistic. Our position is to assist in the eradication of scabies and spread of this disease and that one day it is eliminated like Polio!

First Cases of Ivermectin resistance

SCABIES - FIRST CASES OF IVERMECTIN RESISTANCE IN ABORIGINAL COMMUNITIES

Scabies is endemic in many remote Aboriginal communities in northern Australia. Some of the inhabitants have been treated with over 50 oral doses of ivermectin over the last 5 years [6]. Clinical and in vitro evidence of ivermectin resistance has developed in two individuals [6]. No ivermectin-resistant arthropod has previously been reported to cause human infestation, however, such resistance has been induced in the laboratory under intense drug exposure with the horn fly [7], fruit fly [8], and a species of tick [9].

From their experience in this endemic population, Currie et al. now recommend a weekly dosing interval for ivermectin rather than their previous use of a fortnight between treatments [6]. Additionally, they note that higher doses have been suggested by some authors [1].

 

Summary of available treatments for scabies

The standard treatment of scabies has been the application of a prescription scabicide overnight to the entire body surface. The scalp is normally excluded with adults, but treatment of this body region is important in infants. Inasmuch as the mite prefers warm, moist areas, the finger and toe creases, intergluteal cleft, umbilicus, and skin beneath finger and toe nails must be treated thoroughly. To reduce the incidence of reinfestation and fomite transmission, clothing, linens, and towels used within the previous week should be washed in hot water and dried on high heat. All family members and close contacts must be treated simultaneously, even if they have not developed pruritus or other clinical signs of scabies. The relatively common occurrence of asymptomatic mite carriers is greatly underappreciated.

The antiparasitic agent, ivermectin, has been used for 10 years in humans for this disease and is slowly gaining prominence because of its high efficacy, ease of treatment, and low risk of side effects. A summary of the standard topical therapies with comments are listed in Table 1.

Denial of being Asymptomatic

Scabies is highly contagious and can be passed on to others very easily. Getting them and within a short period of time ( first timers 4-6 weeks ) start showing the symptoms. Symptoms include rashes and red bumps that is intensely irritating to the skin. Non stop itching along with pin pricks are felt with this disease. So what about others in your family or circle of friends that have had contact but do not show any symptoms at all? They proudly announce that they do not have the scabies…look I do not have any rashes or red bumps like you. Sounds convincing doesn’t it! Well folks here is the deal on this! Person’s that are Asymptomatic can have no symptoms of having this disease. Very similar to the Typhoid Mary story of long ago. She was a carrier with no symptoms.

This is very problematic for those that have scabies and want to get everyone who has had contact to get treatment at the same time. Often you will hear from them I am not infected and if pressed about the issue they go to the Doctor and then you get confirmation from that source that they do not have Scabies. Very troublesome for those wanting to get eradicated of the parasite as the asymptomatic person keeps giving you the scabies back. To put it another way re-infecting you. We term this a tractionless situation as you are just on the rodent wheel and cannot get off. So you might be asking? What can I do about this! Try to explain in a very very nice way! Heated exchanges get you nothing on this! Pleading might get them to engage in treatment for the scabies and this is a breakthrough method that has been used in the past to get you off the rodent wheel. Bringing up the Typhoid Mary story also might get them connected. As with all good blogs this one has to end as I have a lot of chores to catch up on!

Here is an image showing a scabie that has layed eggs in a burrow under the skin.

Note the black dots surrounding the eggs…that is feces from the scabie. The feces

causes an allergic reaction to most people and then you get skin irrations appearing as a rash.

Scabie with eggs in burrow www.scabiehelp.com

Translatorvar ackuna_src = "en";

Scabies they are parasites and this is what they do to your skin.  For one thing they burrow under your skin and create tunnels or burrows. You might even see lines where the burrows are located. When doing this  they eat your skin they then digest that and leave behind feces in the tunnel along with their eggs. For the vast majority of people that have scabie infections this causes red like bumps that become very itchy. It even replicates other types of skin disorders of which can lead to misdiagnosis of the disease.  Those that have severe cases can be marked or scarred on the skins surface for a very long time Then there are those that simply do not have any symptoms at all. This means that their body did not have an allergic reaction so no skin irritations occurred. Sounds weird but true!  It is more common to have skin disorders than not. If you are having difficulties or know someone that is in dealing with the scabie mites.

Have them visit this web site so they can get their lifes back from scabie mites.

Learn how to eradicate scabies to get your life back to normal again. This Scabie Help E-Book has 8 chapters of which gives the reader a heads up on eradication. Notably, the book addresses many aspects of your environment whether at home or at work, or even your transportation vehicles. All of which comes into play of being re-infected. The Medical community is essential to our everyday health concerns and they are very much appreciated for their hard work everyday. However, when it comes to a disease like this…often times during the evaluation process Scabies is put into a low concern category when compared to other life threatening situations they are presented with! So with that in mind we often will get looked at in the examining room and if any determining factors are present for diagnosis…you will get some sort of treatment for Scabies. That is if you are lucky enough to show the proper symptoms at that given time. Scabies is one of the most misdiagnosed disease as it mimics many other types of skin ailments. So lets go back to the diagnosis and it is determined that you have Scabies. You are given a RX for Permethrin or other types of prescription drugs. Before leaving they instruct you to wash clothes and linens and to step up hygiene efforts and they do this in general terms without detail. This is where most patients afflicted with this disease get on the wrong path. There is a lot more to addressing your environments than what is said to you as your leave the office. An example of this is ….you are learning to ride a bike and someone says “Be careful”. Well that says a lot to be desired and really does not address all the pitfalls one can run into during this trial of what to do and not to do. To learn more about the pitfalls and how to address them ….download your FREE copy of Scabie Help E-Book. It is our mission to Globally stomp out Scabies much like Polio.

In the last year we have experienced a lot of disasters around the globe. Many people have been affected with not so desired outcomes because of it. Fires, earthquakes, floods, sunami’s just to name a few have shown their ugly face to mankind. With all of this many people become displaced from evacuation their homes and have to find a place to stay. Many rely on their families for support while others may have to stay in temporary shelters. This is a stressful time for those that have to deal with these situations. The spread of disease is common during these periods of instability. Food & water sources are hit with pathogens that can cause many health problems and cause additional suffering. It does not end there  as when people are congregated in tight places for extended periods of time other diseases spread and one that is problematic is scabies. This disease can spread very fast amongst those with physical contact with each other or contact with their personal belongings. These scabie mites have only one thing on their mind and that is to find a host and repopulate. This can be difficult to diagnosis as many other types of symptoms that often mislead medical professionals to misdiagnosis the situation. This allows the scabie mite population to expand very quickly of which leads to a much longer recovery time from this disease. We are not able to provide a clear path to avoid situations like this as the many masses of people that are affected by disasters experience total chaos of their lives. However, we can get you on the right path after you get back to a normal environment. Thanks for reading our blogs and please feel free to write to us with your experiences! Be healthy!

Well I really like this topic for discussion! Here is a disease that has really got the Doc’s and patients reeling around a bit. It can cause difficulties in Doc and patient relationships. Diagnosis of the patient having scabie mites is often very elusive for the patient and the Docs. Reason being is this disease mimics so many other types on the surface and is often missed. Patients suffering constant itch and loss of sleep leads to irritable patient visits of which makes for a not so good day for the medical staff involved. Yes they are trained for this…however it can be tiresome to deal with day in and day out. Hospital staff are told to report & treat any symptoms that resemble scabie mite infections in an effort to contain a very contagious disease from spreading to the rest of the staff and patients. We applaud this quick thinking and action to eradicate this disease expeditously! Let’s keep in mind though that handing out a RX is only one part of what needs to be done. Environmental issues prevale with this disease and to be successful one must have a plan for success! Our Scabie Help E-book (www.scabiehelp.com) enjoins with the medical community for the eradication of the scabie mites on the person as well as the surrounding environment.

Permethrin Cream, 5%*

*W/W

Rx Only

 

DESCRIPTION

Permethrin Cream, 5% is a topical scabicidal agent for the treatment of infestation with Sarcoptes scabiei (scabies). It is available in an off-white, vanishing cream base. Permethrin Cream, 5% is for topical use only.

chemical structure 

Chemical Name – The permethrin used is an approximate 1:3 mixture of the cis and trans isomers of the pyrethroid 3-(2,2-dichloroethenyl)-2,2-dimethylcyclopropanecarboxylic acid, (3-phenoxyphenyl) methyl ester. Permethrin has a molecular formula of C21H20Cl2O3 and a molecular weight of 391.29. It is a yellow to light orange-brown, low melting solid or viscous liquid.

Active Ingredient – Each gram contains permethrin 50 mg (5%).

Inactive Ingredients – Butylated hydroxytoluene, carbomer homopolymer type B, fractionated coconut oil, glycerin, glyceryl monostearate, isopropyl myristate, lanolin alcohols, mineral oil, polyoxyethylene cetyl ethers, purified water, and sodium hydroxide. Formaldehyde 1 mg (0.1%) is added as a preservative.

 

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Permethrin, a pyrethroid, is active against a broad range of pests including lice, ticks, fleas, mites, and other arthropods. It acts on the nerve cell membrane to disrupt the sodium channel current by which the polarization of the membrane is regulated. Delayed repolarization and paralysis of the pests are the consequences of this disturbance.

Permethrin is rapidly metabolized by ester hydrolysis to inactive metabolites which are excreted primarily in the urine. Although the amount of permethrin absorbed after a single application of the 5% cream has not been determined precisely, data from studies with 14C-labeled permethrin and absorption studies of the cream applied to patients with moderate to severe scabies indicate it is 2% or less of the amount applied.

 

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

Permethrin Cream, 5% is indicated for the treatment of infestation with Sarcoptes scabiei (scabies).

 

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Permethrin Cream, 5% is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any of its components, to any synthetic pyrethroid or pyrethrin.

 

WARNINGS

If hypersensitivity to Permethrin Cream, 5% occurs, discontinue use.

 

PRECAUTIONS

 

General

Scabies infestation is often accompanied by pruritus, edema, and erythema. Treatment with Permethrin Cream, 5% may temporarily exacerbate these conditions.

 

Information for Patients

Patients with scabies should be advised that itching, mild burning and/or stinging may occur after application of Permethrin Cream, 5%. In clinical trials, approximately 75% of patients treated with permethrin cream, 5% who continued to manifest pruritus at 2 weeks had cessation by 4 weeks. If irritation persists, they should consult their physician. Permethrin Cream, 5% may be very mildly irritating to the eyes. Patients should be advised to avoid contact with eyes during application and to flush with water immediately if Permethrin Cream, 5% gets in the eyes.

 

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

Six carcinogenicity bioassays were evaluated with permethrin, three each in rats and mice. No tumorigenicity was seen in the rat studies. However, species-specific increases in pulmonary adenomas, a common benign tumor of mice of high spontaneous background incidence, were seen in the three mouse studies. In one of these studies there was an increased incidence of pulmonary alveolar-cell carcinomas and benign liver adenomas only in female mice when permethrin was given in their food at a concentration of 5000 ppm. Mutagenicity assays, which give useful correlative data for interpreting results from carcinogenicity bioassays in rodents, were negative. Permethrin showed no evidence of mutagenic potential in a battery of in vitro and in vivo genetic toxicity studies.

Permethrin did not have any adverse effect on reproductive function at a dose of 180 mg/kg/day orally in a three-generation rat study.

 

Pregnancy

 

Teratogenic Effects

 

Pregnancy Category B

Reproduction studies have been performed in mice, rats, and rabbits (200 to 400 mg/kg/day orally) and have revealed no evidence of impaired fertility or harm to the fetus due to permethrin. There are, however, no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, this drug should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.

 

Nursing Mothers

It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk and because of the evidence for tumorigenic potential of permethrin in animal studies, consideration should be given to discontinuing nursing temporarily or withholding the drug while the mother is nursing.

 

Pediatric Use

Permethrin Cream, 5% is safe and effective in pediatric patients two months of age and older. Safety and effectiveness in infants less than two months of age have not been established.

 

Geriatric Use

Clinical studies of permethrin cream, 5% did not identify sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 and over to allow a definitive statement regarding whether elderly subjects respond differently from younger subjects. Other reported clinical experience has not identified differences in responses between the elderly and younger patients. This drug is known to be substantially excreted by the kidney. However, since topical permethrin is metabolized in the liver and excreted in the urine as inactive metabolites, there does not appear to be an increased risk of toxic reactions in patients with impaired renal function when used as labeled.

 

ADVERSE REACTIONS

In clinical trials, generally mild and transient burning and stinging followed application with permethrin cream, 5% in 10% of patients and was associated with the severity of infestation. Pruritus was reported in 7% of patients at various times post-application. Erythema, numbness, tingling, and rash were reported in 1 to 2% or less of patients (see PRECAUTIONS - General). Other adverse events reported since marketing permethrin cream, 5% include: headache, fever, dizziness, abdominal pain, diarrhea and nausea and/or vomiting. Although extremely uncommon and not expected when used as directed (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION), rare occurrences of seizure have been reported. None have been medically confirmed as associated with Permethrin Cream, 5% treatment.

 

OVERDOSAGE

No instance of accidental ingestion of Permethrin Cream, 5% has been reported. If ingested, gastric lavage and general supportive measures should be employed. Excessive topical use (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION) may result in increased irritation and erythema.

 

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

 

Adults and children

Thoroughly massage Permethrin Cream, 5% into the skin from the head to the soles of the feet. Scabies rarely infests the scalp of adults, although the hairline, neck, temple, and forehead may be infested in infants and geriatric patients. Usually 30 grams is sufficient for an average adult. The cream should be removed by washing (shower or bath) after 8 to 14 hours. Infants should be treated on the scalp, temple, and forehead. ONE APPLICATION IS GENERALLY CURATIVE.

Patients may experience persistent pruritus after treatment. This is rarely a sign of treatment failure and is not an indication for retreatment. Demonstrable living mites after 14 days indicate that retreatment is necessary.

Scabies is a contagious skin infection that occurs among humans and animals. It is caused by a tiny and usually not directly visible parasite—the mite Sarcoptes scabiei—which burrows under the host’s skin, causing intense allergic itching. The word scabies is derived from the Latin word scabere, which means to scratch. Colloquially it is the disease known as the seven year itch. The infection in animals (caused by different but related mite species) is called sarcoptic mange.

The disease in humans may be transmitted from objects or bedding (like mattresses,etc.), but is most often transmitted by direct skin-to-skin contact, with prolonged contact being more efficient. Initial infections of scabies require four to six weeks to become symptomatic. However, persons who have recently been cured of the disease, upon re-infection, may manifest symptoms within as little as 24 hours. Because the symptoms are allergic, their delay in onset is often mirrored by a significant delay in relief after the parasites have been eradicated.

Scabies mites prefer thin hairless skin, and for this reason concentrate on intertriginous parts of the body below the neck (e.g., between fingers and in skin folds), avoiding callused areas. Infants may be infected over any part of the body, as may also immunosuppressed persons. Otherwise healthy persons with good hygiene may be infected with only an average of 11 mites. Crusted scabies, formerly known as “Norwegian scabies,” is a more severe form of the infection often associated with immunosuppressed hosts. In crusted scabies, the mites, numbering thousands in such cases, cause scaly rashes and thick crusts of skin.

In both humans and animals, the disease can be effectively treated with a number of medications. Permethrin cream is the most effective, but expensive compared to other treatments. Ivermectin is also used orally and topically, subject to restrictions involving treatment toxicity differences between hosts. Treatment with lindane preparations have fallen out of favor due to high toxicity and parasite resistance. In order to prevent re-infection, the host’s contacts are also often treated. Using natural treatments is on the up as the drug resistant scabie mites are not killed. Leaving the person with undesirable effects and long term misery.
