Q: My bf has white itchy patches on his balls & red itchy dots on his wrist & inner thighs

Doctor

A:   Hello.
Thanks for your query on ATD.

It appears that your bf has got scabies. All the sites that you have mentioned are the commonest sites for scabies lesions. Kindly use permethrin 5% cream apply all over body below the neck after consulting your Dermatologist. Leave it overnight and take a shower the next morning. You can use tab Zyrtec once a day for itching.

Hope this helps.
