My poor baby girl was infected with scabies.yup kudis buta in malay.kesian.
The blisters popped out since last week.But I thought it just a normal rashes.Pls forgive mama!
After 4 days & blisters were still there, ok, this was weird.And I thought it was Hand,foot & mouth disease.
So we went to clinic.The doctor confirmed it wasn't HF&M.Maybe, yes he said maybe my baby kena gigit pijat or hama sahaja.Fine.We went home & sapu2 krim saja.The next day, we sent our baby to Taska as usual.Tghri Taska call suruh pick up our baby.Katanya chicken pox.Ok, So we rushed back.Although I'm 100% sure it wasn't chicken pox.Petang tu we went back to other clinic.Then this doctor said, it was HF&,.but without mouth infection.*sigh*Doctor tu pon nampak macam tak sure.Bila ditanya, bila agak2 dia nak hilang, at first dia cakap in 7 days, pastu aku bgth ni dah dekat seminggu, terus doctor tu cakap dalam masa 14 days.pulak.haihhhh..aku rasakan doctor2 ni kena belajar lagila, tak semestinya dah dapat ijazah doktor tu pembelajaran tu terhenti disitu.penyakit ni macam2.makin hari makin pelik n doctors kena keep updated la jugak.Aku rasa kalo aku pegi jumpa 10 org datang, 10 org diagnose lain2.
OK, back to scabies ni.Pagi semalam aku pegi hantar Icha mcm biasala.Muka2 pengasuh Taska cam tak puas ati jugak la, dah kata chicken pox bukan, HF&M pun bukan so aku hantar jela cam biasa.Then baru diaorg bukak cerita, ada sorang budak ni baru kena scabies jugak,sympton dia sama ngan yg ada kat Icha..ok..sekarang baru nak bagitahula...haihhhhh...

Info on Scabies

Scabies is a common skin infestation that causes small itchy bumps and blisters due to tiny mites called Sarcoptes scabiei. The mites burrow into the top layer of human skin to lay their eggs.
The burrows sometimes appear as short, wavy, reddish, or darkened lines on the skin's surface, especially around the wrists and between the fingers. A child who has contracted scabies can also develop a bumpy red rash.

How Do People Get Scabies?

Scabies is contagious, and is usually transmitted by prolonged skin-to-skin contact or through sexual contact with someone else who is infected with it. The infection spreads more easily in crowded conditions and in situations where there is a lot of close contact — like within a household, childcare centers, college dorms, or nursing homes. So if someone in your child's class or childcare group has scabies, it's wise to have your child treated for the infection even before he or she develops symptoms.
Mites can live for about 2 to 3 days in clothing, bedding, or dust, making it possible to catch scabies from people who share the same infected bed, linens, or towels.
It may take up to 4 to 6 weeks after infection for symptoms to appear in someone who’s never had scabies before. In people who have had scabies previously, symptoms may appear in just a few days.

Signs and Symptoms

The most common symptom of scabies is severe itching, which may be worse at night or after a hot bath.
A scabies infection begins as small, itchy bumps, blisters, or pus-filled bumps that break when scratched. Itchy skin may become thick, scaly, scabbed, and crisscrossed with scratch marks. The itching is due to a hypersensitivity reaction to the mite and/or its feces and eggs.
scabies_illustrationThe areas of the body most commonly affected by scabies are the hands and feet (especially the webs of skin between the fingers and toes), the inner part of the wrists, and the folds under the arms. It may also affect other areas of the body, particularly the elbows and the areas around the breasts, genitals, navel, and buttocks.
If a child with scabies scratches the itchy areas of skin, it increases the chance that the injured skin will also be infected by bacteria. Impetigo, a bacterial skin infection, may occur in skin that is already infected with scabies.
In infants and young children, the rash can be on the scalp, palms, and soles of feet. Rashes in infants and young children can appear to be more reddened or with larger blisters.
