Scabies or folliculitis?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've had what I believed to be folliculitis for around 2 years now. I've used all sorts of creams, tablets etc, but it has never completely gone away. Now I was just reading on another website that someone had seemingly "incurable folliculitis", which in the end turned out to be scabies.

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this? Folliculitis and scabies can look quite similar and be hard for a doctor (especially mine who is retarded) to diagnose.

I don't think that we can diagnose you just from that paragraph, and I doubt we could with the help of a picture either.

I'd suggest a doctor.
