  3. Dear @eduardo-swift . You might wish to consult a dermatologist who will be able to do a physical examination of your body and perform scabies scrape to confirm any presence of scabies. Treatment would depend on the diagnosis. Hope this helps.

  6. Dear @dylanojh Folliculitis is due to inflammation of hair follicles.  It can be due to bacteria, virus or even fungus. Folliculitis is not a sign of allergy but it indicates poor skin health.

    You might wish to refer to my previous article on maskne on some tips of skin self care and treatments available for acne.

  8. Dear @catarina-mayer If you are feeling extremely stressed your sleep might be disrupted. You might wish to do some breathing exercises or engage in relaxation therapy to reduce your stress. If you feel that you are feeling extremely anxious, mood constantly low and sleep remains poor, you might wish to consult a doctor.

  11. Hi @andrewlim_11,
    Do you strain when you pass motion and urinate? The lower abdominal pain may result from an excessive rise in intra-abdominal pressure from straining. Occasionally it can also be because of abdominal wall conditions like hernia, urinary tract conditions like prostate enlargement or intestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome. If your symptoms are recurrent and are bothering you, it's best to get it checked by a medical doctor.
