Answer

hello, Katerina d Ianacone. This is an autogenerated report based on thousands of cases similar to yours and what real dermatologists advised them.

We think you should be aware of the following transmission risk.

Some of the possible condition(s) you have might spread by day to day objects like clothes. Regular washing of all personal belongings is must. Sharing of towel/clothes should be avoided untill visiting the doctor.
Some of the possible condition(s) you have might spread through sex/ blood transfusion. Until an actual diagnosis is established, blood donation should be avoided and condom must be used for sexual intercourse.
Some of the possible condition(s) you have might be genetic but not very strongly. it means that if the parents are affected, the children has only a slightly increased risk of getting the disease.

Important home treatment and diet advise based on your probable conditions.

Protection from sun exposure is very important. Please use atleast SPF 15 sunscreen and other protective measures (such as umbrella) as required.
Do not apply any over the counter as they might contain steroid. Specifically ask the chemist if it contains steroid. Most creams end with vate , derm , plus etc such as betnovate.
Do not experiment with various home treatments.
Avoid alcohol.


OTC medicines you may try before visiting a dermatologist.

Use a proper sunscreen with SPF atleast 15 and PA rating 3+.
Anti-histaminic such as levocetirizine (5mg) or fexofenadine (180 mg) can be taken at bedtime, if there is associated itching.
Permethrin 5% cream / lotion (permite) should be used from neck to toe for all family members and kept whole night. Wash all clothes with ironing. Repeat whole thing after 7 days.
Use moisturizer such as vaseline lotion or coconut oil liberally.


Sunscreen : Apply 20 minutes before sun-exposure liberally over face and exposed part of body such as neck, upper chest, arm etc. Apply every 2 hour if you are frequently going to outdoor and every hour if you are constantly staying in the sun.

Caution: In case of any allergic reaction or stinging sensation just wash it off and restart later with smaller amount. if it still persisting, the brand may be required to be changed.

Anti-histamine : Dose depends on body weight. usually 1 levocetirizine (5mg) or fexofenadine (180 mg) can be taken at bedtime. To controll itching 4 times the initial dose can be taken.

Caution: Sometime it can cause slight dizziness that should go away after few days. if that is really bothersome, you can use bilastine(bilasure/bilanix) 20 mg that causes less dizziness. if you have another medical problem (such as liver disease) or physiologic condition (such as pregnancy), you should consult a physician before taking this medicine.

Permethrin : Permethrin 5% cream / lotion (permite) should be used from neck to toe for all family members and kept whole night. Wash all clothes with ironing. Repeat whole thing after 7 days. For children, only 6 hours would be enough.
