I am currently in post scabies, it has been a few weeks. No biting, no crawling sensations and no digging into me. Things have been quite for a couple of weeks now. I still have these red bumps, they have been treated, they do not itch but they just are not going away. Is this nests that have not opened? Not sure about this. Help with POST SCABIES

I have been using the Nystatin and Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP to help clear up my dead mite, dry scally skin where I had a heavy infestation of the mites. It cleared things up pretty good on other parts of my body. Do you think this will do it on my scalp as well?

GMB Im week 5 or 6 now cured. I have another sore errupting on my scalp. It is painful and everyday raises up more, it will scab over when it comes to the surface. The skin needs to eliminate all the eggs and dead mites. Try googling info on the cycle of skin and how long it takes to shed its layers.

Dear Catzillaa, since I am so new to this and was scared, I actually did a lice treatment with the premethrin on my head last night and combed through my hair and scalp. This morning most of the red bumps are gone. I don't know if I just got rid of a dead layer of skin, which helped improve it or not. But where I had a lot of them by the nap of my neck have almost completely gone, since last night. I did leave the treatment on longer than what they say. It couldn't hurt anything. I did have crusted scabies in my hair at one time and I don't want that again. At first I thought I might be having a reinfestation, but there is no way possible. I have done enough 5% premethrin cream treatments from head to toe and never got sick over it. And the Advantix to finish up. Better safe than sorry. Thanks for your imput. I don't know much about post scabies and what happens, so that is why I am still posting questions.

Symptoms are going to get worse before they get better. I have done 2 treatments the last 2 weeks and I have gotten much worse with bumps and rashes but that is to be EXPECTED. Give your skin time to heal and if you have been doing your cleaning and treatment give your skin a week or so to heal and see if you itch less and less. I'm in the same boat you are just like the majority of the people on this forum. And by majority I mean the people who actually have scabies and it isn't in their head.

I treated with the Elamite cream 3 times before things started to get better. Still had extreme itching. Started using neem oil from Heath store. I hate the nasty odor it has, but it is working. Really helps with the itching also and helps skin heal faster.
