After reading many studies on scabies, it has been determined that permethrin alone is not workng for some immunocomprised patients. Ask your doctor for Stromectol ivermectin tables (with 2 refills) and use this along with your Elimite Permethrin Cream 5%(2 refills). Ask the Dermatologist to biopsy your active areas, to determine exactly what you have and to rule out things you suspect you have. If they don't biopsy, then they are only guessing and you may be treating something completely different than what you think you have.I will tell you that when I went in to the 7th dermatologist who told me I didn't have scabies (although the 1st one said "possibly" which got it stuck in my head) told me my breasts were just really dry after I told him I felt crawling on them. I hydrated internally with water, and externally with coconut oil & the crawling/itchy feeling stopped- but not on the rest of my body, which is why I'm doing the 2nd round of permethrin tomorrow. The crawling has decreased significantly and pin pricks as well. I almost feel like not doing the 2nd app, but I'm just going to finish it off & leave no room for self doubt.
Always consult a qualified medical doctor. Show him copies of stuides you have read from the net.
