I have been dealin with scabies for months now. After about 7 tubes of permetherin 5% I decided to take all the different baths and things mentioned on this forum. I dont kno wat has happened but my skin is the worst its been so far. and painful. an ugly mean rash that is raised covering my whole arms and legs. Its so embarrassing. I was trying to avoid any more chemicals but I have a tube of perm. I guess im gonna try it again. This mess is driving me insane. And im afraid im about to lose everything. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else? and any advice would be awesome thanks!

be careful..perm made my skin worse, and turned out my rash over my arms and legswas bacterial infection. once i got anitbiotics, lots of flaky skin fell off and left me with what looked like the scabies rash.. That alone i looked 95% better. Im convince the perm made it worse for me. I now use clove oil (diluted 1ml/10ml carrier) which does the same thing as perm for me.. but seems to heal the skin instead of make things worse. i will try iver soon just to make sure the last of these buggers are gone. but waiting to have a hopsital op on something irrellavent so i hope once recovered my bodies strong enough for the iver to do its job! becareful using too much perm basically..from my experience!!good luck x

Ktk13 I agree with Almo. Prem can really damaged your skin. There are some users who can use it 100 times and they are fine. I know with me I have used it 5x, but they have all been spread out. The first few times using it I was worse than I started. Then it gradually got better. Most individuals on the forum says there worse after prem and then they start to feel relief. How about doing stromecol? I know how rough this is, don't give up! We have a support forum you should join. A few of us email each other for support. It's good to have someone who's dealing with the same thing help you, bounce ideas off of each other. Maybe lay off the prem for a week or two let your skin heal. Good luck! Your not alone.
