You might be suffering from scabies.

Please take the following medications:

  1. Pernil lotion - Permethrin has to be applied to your whole family members as a precautionary measure. Around 50 mL has to be applied to each candidate.
  2. Tablet Teczine M (combination of Montelukast and Levocetirizine) one tablet daily at night.
  3. Use HHMITE (Permethrin) soap for bathing.
  4. Wash all clothing in hot water and use hot iron or discard clothes from any kind of use for five days.
  5. It may take 10-15 days for itching to subside.
