... and did not work only temporary. Can I take this medication in a week or two weeks in a row? I read that one guy did three weeks in a row and that's how he finally got cured. Permethrin did not work on me only temporary then they stopped react to it. I am thinking to use lindane lotion, Can I use that on my scalp? and with the ivermectin? and I understand that is a one time treatment. I have mites on my scalp and I don't know the best way to get rid of them there and the body the same time. Please help!!
