    Smallish Bumps on the Side of My Pinkie PLEASE HELP ASAP...SCABIES?!
    An_267603 posted:

    I have had scabies before...but I woke up today after being rid of the mites for months, just to see this smallish bumps on my hand that seem to resemble the awful disgusting creatures. I am so scared I might be getting them again; I live in a house of with six people, so if I have scabies we all do. My mother, grandma, grandpa, and sister went to the doctor to have their bumps checked out the last time we had scabies, but the doctor's said it wasn't scabies at all and that it was something else skin related each time they went. My mom did get some medicine and soap specifically scabies and they did go away though. The bumps on my hand do not really itch like scabies, but they look quite similar to the bumps from the scabies I had before.
    Please help, I beg! I don't want to have to go through with this again.

    Is this scabies?...
    If not..what is it?...
