OK..so they sort of make my week..since..well, spider bites and rashes have been happening. First it was with a co-worker. The rash just grew. Strange things at the library. Somebody might have brought in scabies to the library.
Do people still get scabies? Like, is that still a problem?
Doctors don't like to think its happening. I mean, they might try all these other kinds of meds, even shots and lotions. And then when that doesn't work they give you something to kill it. Its in a kit.
Its the worst when it gets on your eyelid.
STD 101 - ScabiesWhat is scabies?
Scabies is a skin condition caused by the scabies mite. The mite burrows under the skin. It is so small it can hardly be seen with the naked eye. It belongs to the same family as the spider.
Scabies is usually sexually transmitted. However, children often pass it to one another and to adults through everyday contact.
How are scabies spread?
Scabies is very easily spread. Even though it is often spread sexually, you do not need to have sex in order to get scabies.
It is easily spread through close personal contact and contact with bedding and clothing.
Scabies is easily spread, and there is no protection. The only thing that can reduce your risk of getting scabies is limiting the number of people with whom you have intimate or sexual contact.
If you have scabies, do not have sex until you and your partner(s) have completed treatment.
What are the symptoms?
Often the symptoms of scabies are not visible. When there are symptoms, they may include intense itching — usually at night and small bumps or rashes that appear in dirty-looking, small curling lines, especially on the penis, between the fingers, on buttocks, breasts, wrists, and thighs, and around the belly button.
It usually takes 3–4 weeks for the symptoms of scabies to develop. But if you’ve recently had scabies and get re-infected, you may have itching within hours.
How are scabies treated?
Your health care provider may prescribe a medication such as Nix, Elimite, or Scabene. Less toxic treatments may be prescribed if the infestation is not severe. Be sure to follow the directions that come with the package. You may have to apply the medicine from neck-to-toe more than once
Everyone who may have been in close contact with you should be treated at the same time. That way you can avoid becoming infected again.
All bedding, towels, and clothing that you’ve used should be thoroughly washed or dry cleaned. All floors should be thoroughly vacuumed in your home, too.

Oh..about that lunch. It was a 2 hour lunch. Can't say it really went anywhere. I did get apple pie with caramel on top. Yum! Then Monday we had a work meeting at a bakery. Again..yummy scones! If only I could be a good vegan girl like my co-worker. She even said no to caffeine. Oh the will power she has!
Just when I thought Fall might be early, its not. Its hot.
