Yup. Challenging, for sure. I was allergic too and battled hives. Needed Betamethasone. They like darkness and moisture and warmth. I would strongly recommend taking 2 or 3 Turmeric capsules daily while doing battle, and add the usual of Borax, high heat on prolonged drying cycle for the wash, and spray your carpets and chairs with mix of vinegar and water daily until the problem is solved. Also one or more treatments of Nix as needed. Protect your mattress with plastic and do your bedding frequently. It took months to sort out the winning combination of using the above, so they finally didn't return.

Being plagued w/scabies re-infections from family and reading for years. Many of us are from different countries. There is some confusion on products. In USA Nix 1% is sold OTC is ineffective for scabies. A 5%Permethrin such as Elimite, Acticin, Nix5% or Lyclear can be effective. Resistant cases leave cream on up to 14 hrs will find more effective and less failures. Also failures due to lack of coverage/or not massaging into skin thoroughly. Medium to large persons find 30gr tube is not enough to cover the entire body head to toe correctly one time. I just found this e-book at helped my relatives understand more of the details how to deal with scabies. I hope this helps others reading here too.

Scabies and high glucose and esp. a long epson salt bath have caused me bad neuropathy in my feet, maybe my legs, and maybe my groin. I'm 57. I've had Scabies since 2005.
