Just worried ivermectin may not work. Are there any other meds to treat extreme scabies?
I had limited resources to attack scabies. I could not see a doctor, they refused treating me. I had scabies for 7 months. It took Ivermectin every week along with Crotamin. I live in a jungle high humidity area. Also bleach baths. Sometimes I took Ivermectin every 5 days. It depended on when the adults started to appear. I did not realize that I had to not bath for 4 days with Crotamin. Once I did that the babies started dying. But living in 90 degrees with 89% humidity is hard not to bath or sweat.
What is extreme scabies
Ivermectin will work but not alone. I also took it daily ( paste from feed store) hey you gotta do what you gotta do when dr. Only prescribes one pill! It took almost a year to rid mine. And I took ivermectin, oh that cream, but dr. Woulsbt prescribe more so I made my own permethrin! Cream. Buy a gallon of it or whatever and I mixed it with my lotion, my shampoo, my body wash, my laundry, everything!
Sprayed it on me and on the furniture, bed , the dogs. Bathe your animals!! And refrain. From cuddling them until you've killed them all.
Get alcohol keep your phone, computer cabinets, wipes down, toilet seat. I kept reinvesting myself bc alot of little things I was not doing .. hang in there!
Also tea tree oil, neem oil, they can live in your mattress, couch, car, ect everything has to be thought of. Everything you touch.
