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

Stromectol - I'm suffering of severe mite infestation. I tried ivermectin on day 1,2,8,9 and 15....

... 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 need help. I have scabies and apparently a very resistent kind. I can not get rid of them.

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

Persistent Scabies - any advice?

I was diagnosed with scabies a couple months ago. I have done the cream treatment 3 times, each time a week apart. Because of new bites my dermatologist prescribed stromectol 4 (3mg) plus the cream. My house is under siege and have used all measures from scrubbing everything daily, washing clothes... read more

Ivermectin - re scabies, worst ever heard of?

Just worried ivermectin may not work. Are there any other meds to treat extreme scabies?

Ivermectin with food or without?

Why do doctors say to take ivermectin on empty stomach for scabies when Cdc says. Can't get rid of them. Please help!

Permethrin - How do I know if the cream has worked?

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

Ivermectin - My Dr. gave me 6 (3 mg) pills to take all at one time. Int says do not take.....

... at one time. Which directions do I follow??

Stromectol - How long after 1 dose of ivermectin can I drink alcohol?

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.

Ivermectin - Scabies are too tiny to see without a microscope. Wrong mite? Dermodex?

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
