Help! Suspect maid brought unknown insects home!!!

Postby popireis » Thu Jan 24, 2013 8:32 pm

Help! My new maid fm Indo, since she came she complained of itchiness and some small pox like rashes on her body. Brought her to see doc only given anti-itch cream. However, now my DS, DH n me also has the same pox like rashes and itchiness over our hands and legs!

Sometimes the bump n itch dun lasts more than an hour, but there are some pox like bumps that seem to have watery pus and that lasts days till it dry up.

I suspect it could be some kind of bugs bite, and could be brought in by the new maid because it never happened before she came. (We ever had a maid who has bed bugs in her bag :faint: )

We dunno wat bugs it could be, and we can't see them. But its seriously causing my DS to scratch badly till he bleeds. Anyone has any suggestions what we can do? Pls help!

Sorry I do not know if can post the pics together, so I posted separately. Its usually between the thumb and pointer finger, wrist, thighs and feet. Could it be some skin diseases? Because the symptoms are exactly the same as what she had :sad:

Do you think seeing doc, or blood test can determine what it is?

kutu from hair = head lice?

I just searched internet and there is body lice. I never heard of it before but they exist.
