I have all the classic signs of Scabies,with the exception of I have had crawling in my nose and feel something moving in my eyes,and can not see anything in them..I have also had spots(red bumps)show up on my neck and face..Have been to the ER two times,with the same results,and all they gave me was the permethrin cream which did nothing,two times..I can not sleep,(usually 3-4 hrs. is all I get) I have taken Stromectol two times,at 11 days apart and it was helping,but the dumb nurse at the Hospital won't give me any more refills on it,she says they don't want to be responsible for over dosing the liver,and damage to it... I say bull shi*..I believe I can kick them if I had 1-or 2 more doses of the stromectol 10-11 days apart... I do have noduls on my arms and they are starting to itch really bad at nite..just like when this started back in June... It has been a battle to clean the enviroment,clothes,bedding,etc..I just would like some in-put from somebody who might know what to do for this... or who has been through this... Thanks...
Banditforluv, I have had similar symptoms on my face for about seven months. The fact that these mites, whatever they are, infest mucous membranes and other sensitive areas make them particularly hard to treat with topicals. Everything says, "avoid contact with eyes," etc., etc. I had a similar experience with an idiot nurse who gave me one little course of ivermectin and refused to prescribe more. I remain confused at the medical establishment's apparent fear of this proven and safe drug. To get around this ignorance, I have ordered ivermectin from from an offshore pharmacy and am waiting for it's arrival.
I know what you mean about the environment too, it's a constant battle to avoid being completely overtaken by these mites. Tenacious doesn't begin to describe their resolve to continue infesting my person, cat, and home. I am not sure if this is bird mites, as I have no ID. If it is scabies, it is certainly an atypical strain that seems to prefer areas above the neck. I'd be interested in comparing notes with you via email if you're so inclined. I'm particularly interested in hearing how you think you might have acquired these mites as they seem almost impossible to identify via standard methods.

I treated for scabies 3 days ago. Since then I have new bites on me. Does this mean I still have it?
