I had one treatment, then a month later I had the same cream 4 nights in a row! Surely anything living must be dead by now!!
(Caught in a jail holding cell, then put back in the same cell for the 4 treatment days!!)
Got the pics to my atty... She is going to have field day with that place!
I work at a drs office and contracted scabies from a patient. One night I couldn't sleep and I was waking up with 'itchy shocks' that kept waking me up from face to feet. I told the best doctor at my job and he immediately wrote me a rx for permetherin.
After 4 treatments and 2 weeks of laundry I was feeling better. Now, a month later, I'm itchy again out of no where! I believe it's post scabies. I showed the same dr at work my skin, he told me to try Aquaphor ointment. It helps to relieve dry skin. This is quite a brutal winter, so I really hope that it's only dry skin and not reinfestation.
I just showered and applied the ointment and I do feel more calm with little itches here and there- sometimes intense, sometimes subtle.
My boyfriend had scabies the same time I did, we sleep in the same bed every night and he's not itchy... I think I'm just a little more sensitive.
Fingers crossed that I'm not reinfested! Good luck everyone!!
