Patient discussion about direction

Q. Is it possible to have pin worm on directly on the skin of your fore arms? I've had this condition for more than a year. The only thing that makes a difference is something to kill parasites. Nothing works efficiently. I itch all over beside having big sores on my arms and back. I've hade blood test that show that there are no parasites in the blood. So now what do I do? I am constantly digging this out of my skin, and the buggars jump.

A. I'm seeing a dermatologist. They said it wasn't scabies. That's what I thought it was at first. I keep breaking out in new places. The Dr. say's it's dermititous, but I'm seeing something different. Went I first broke out with this I felt crawly in the area I now have the sores.

Q. Can any one direct me to a website which offers information about "must to know during Pregnancy " tips and advices ? i would consider it a great favour and i'd be very thankful .. at the moment i'm about to explode ... i feel like i am far of being ready ... i think that without a good preparation i won't be a good father ... :(
