In March I did my two treatments. I've been taking Zyrtec to prevent all remaining symptoms and it has worked very well. Since then, I've had very little itching but I have had red lines and marks appearing up and down my arms, particularly when I do any physical labor. In the last couple days I ran out of Zyrtec and I've started experiencing the numbness and bumps that came with scabies... is it possible that I still have the mite or should I just get back on Zyrtec?
It is more then possible you still have it. Scabies is known for having to be treated more then once. Did you wash everything that comes in contact with you? Zyrtec will help with the itch but you're probably going to have to do another treatment. There is a pill to take for it if you are having trouble getting rid of it with topical treatments.
