Applying Nix 5% Permithrim Cream to infected cuts

So I have hundreds of itchy bumps all over my body over the past 2 weeks, and after scratching the tons of bumps on my arms, waist, and leg, they have been infected and gooze yellow stuff. The antibiotic I've been taking is doing absolutely nothing, my forehead and ears now have bumps (as well as everywhere else minus genetailia) and I'm about to do a second 5% permithrim treatment.

I went to a clinic doctor today and he swabbed my cut (last doctor just perscribed $30 antibiotics without swabbing) then persribed both topical and oral antibioitics and said to WAIT another 3 days to take the treatment (I'm at the 7th day).

My question is, without knowing what type of bacteria I have, why should I spend more money on antibiotics rather then waiting for the swab results to come back? Also, is it safe to apply the cream to these infected areas? Thanks.

Also this infestion sucks =(. Getting super depressed.
