Itchier after I put on DE/Clove oil

I mixed up DE with Coconut oil and just a couple of clove oil. I was itchier after I did it than before. I couldn't sleep half the night and my skin got all red and rashy beyond the bumps and lines that I normally have. Is this normal? Is it the mites dying off? Am I attracting even more mites? Allergic reaction?

Also how long to do you do treatments before you give up and try something else? Permethrin seemed to work for everyone in my family but me which is weird because I'm the only one in the family that is sugar free and grain free, low carb.

Clove capsules work better for mites. Take 12-15 a day. 4-5 after each meal for a month. It builds up in your skin and you'll feel it after a couple weeks. It kills the mites and eggs. Plus they hate the smell of you and will stay away.

If that doesn't kick it then you have something else.
Be aware that mites carry other infections that they will pass on to a host and those infections can show similar symptoms as scabies. If you think this may be affecting you then go see an infectious disease specialist.Regular MD's or Derms are pretty useless.
