Painful Scabies, have to wait to use cream, NEED SLEEP
LovelySin posted:
I've had this for about 3 weeks now, I went to 2 different urgent cares then my family doctor (Who didn't even look at it) all of them failed to identify this as scabies then I went to an er that didnt even look at me nd kicked me out for telling them i wanted to talk to a real doctor then i went to the next closest hospital nd was diagonsed with scabies.

but I need to go to bed because I'm going to do stuff to get a new familly doctor in the morning and its extremely painful right now and most of my skin is and open infection so if I put the cream on before I go to bed it'll get all gooey and my sheets will stick to me?

I've hardly slept in the past 3 days
How can I make it stop hurting/itching so i can go to sleep?????
