How to fine permethrin to make my own cream, we put 5% on us but the bug stuff says .20 ? does anyone know the difference? THANKS

The bug sprays with .2 equates to just 0.2 percent (very minimal)= you need 5%.
Bug sprays will have, at most, 1% permethrin.
Don't use the bugsprays on yourself - in addition to not having near enough permethrin, they have a host of other non-human friendly compounds.

go to your farm supply store and get DERVET PERMETHRIN 10% and mix it to the recamended amount for mange mites,, 1.28 oz to 1 gal water,,then use it in place of the cream you are talking about,, if you insest on cream ,mix body cream and the the ''1.28 oz to 1 gal water'' solution at 50/50. it will be a bit runnie but will do the job..
One more thing, Oral IVERMECTIN is an effective and cost-comparable alternative to topical agents in the treatment of mange mites or scabies. also at your farm supply store.. use both at the same time for best results...
