I treated for scabies 3 days ago. Since then I have new bites on me. Does this mean I still have it?
I have washed all bedding including pillows and my daughter, husband and I have treated with Premarin. My daughter doesn't have anymore bites on her and my husband only has a few. I have them all over and there are new ones everyday. Can I treat again now with the Premarin? If not, what can I... read more
... 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,... read more
I have done everything by the book. Permethrin 8 times. 4 rounds of ivermectin for 5 days each time. Neem. Tea tree. Clove. Kleen green etc. They are on my face and around my eyes. Really bad. Oh and I am a nurse by trade. A skin and wound care nurse ironically. If this doesn't get better soon... read more

Just worried ivermectin may not work. Are there any other meds to treat extreme scabies?
Why do doctors say to take ivermectin on empty stomach for scabies when Cdc says. Can't get rid of them. Please help!
I used the cream (2 applications 7 days apart) skin dried out and most of it cleared up but I'm still feeling my scalp (which I was told not to use the cream on) is still itching all day/night and my arm & neck are raw/red/bumpy. Still feel like things are crawling on me & have both... read more
... at one time. Which directions do I follow??
I took my first dose (8 pills) about a week ago. Is it safe to drink now? I know that alcohol makes the side effects worse so im just checking.
I'm confused by those talking about seeing mites. Scabies are too tiny to see with the naked eye. I've had it twice now and no, you can't see them. If you could see them it would be easy for doctors to diagnose because they could scrape it off and stick it under the microscope. You... read more
Ivermectin - Is it normal to still feel crawling and stinging on 2nd dose over 2 weeks after the 1s?
I've been dealing with this infestation for almost 7 months. Like most of you, nobody would believe me when I said that I knew it was mites. I was told by everyone it was psychological (even though I had strangers ask me if I had the chickenpox bc I was in such bad shape). I was eventually in... read more
