We've been fighting this in my household for almost three months. First with my daughter for two months, now my husband and I for the last two weeks. We got and applied permaethrin 5%, all of us, on Friday. My itching, for the most part, has stopped. I am still getting random pinprick sensations and some random itching. The rash on my back has all but cleared up. But..Just recently two small bumps popped up on my hand and I'm freaking out, practically in tears. Does scabies make you lose your mind?

You can spot treat any new bumps with Permethrin. The hands are a prime spot for scabies to show up; I'd treat it right away, just in case.

Also, I hope you are planning a second treatment for the whole family a week after the first treatment in this cycle.

One treatment of Permethrin is seldom enough to knock out today's scabies infections.

Are you treating your environment as well? That's very important. Change sheets and towels daily, wash and dry on hot, vacuum as often as you can, put plastic covers on mattresses, and plastic paint cloths over sofas and other cloth furniture, put combs and brushes in dishwasher daily. There are a lot of threads here about treating laundry and environment.

Yes, we are doing all that. We will be retreating everyone on Friday.

Paranoid ?? No, you do not need to be paranoid after your success!!

Yes, scabies is a huge burden for you, physically and emotionally. And the seemingly never-ending battle is exhausting. But don't get paranoid after achieving your goal and give your body and mind time to heal! You deserve it!

No, and you are not lunatic - you are cured! Hopefully...!
