Hi everyone, I too had a nasty scabies. The pricks, itch and crawling sensation was unbearable. My GP said it was not a scabies, but common I could see the tunnels on my feet under my knees and on my palms and wrists. Horrible as its going to sound, I have managed to dig one out from my palm and placed it on the paper...it was moving..:-( But my GP would not believe me. Anyway she gave me Permithin cream for scabies and crab lice, but never mentioned there should be another application done after 7 days. After the first application I developed itch all over my body, little spots everywhere and it caused a fungal infection on my tights. I visited GP once more and she said to do second application, but accidently prescribed shampoo for head lice. I could not believe it!!! I searched the web up and down and ordered tee tree oil. Poured half a bottle in my bath and thought I am just about to die. It was a torture, feeling like someone is cutting through my skin with blade very slowly. I literally jumped out of the bath all sweaty and burned. I cried! Do not recommend this. I've eventually tried Sulphur soap and it really soothed the skin and started drying of my scars from scabies tunnels. Also bought Pure Neem Oil and that did the trick on my fungal infection. The scars and patches on my skin are ugly and horrible, but its certainly getting better and hopefully heal one day. I also washed, cleaned and all that lot. Hope I am rid of the nasty bugs and wish all of you best of luck in killing the b****es. Oh and I wouldn't recommend using any body lotions, butters or creams after shower or bath...it will prolong the healing process. You might feel dry, but just hang on there...your body needs to help itself naturally.X

I'm doing the same post scabies fungal treatment. I found this blog which was quite helpful:

I had been doing an oil treatment (clove, etc) and I was keeping the scabies off but making the yeast worse!
