Red rash with puffy bumps after Permethrin treatment.

After using Permethrin all over my body to treat scabies I developed a red rash with puffy bumbs on my shoulders and behind my ears. I would normally think it would be a reaction from the permethrin, but I have no other rashes on my body and I used the permethrin everywhere.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

I also developed a pimple like itchy rash from the treatment all over my body where I applied it. Is your rash where the original scabies were? I'm so frustrated!

Happened to me after my first treatment. They puffed up in the original areas and turned pink.

I can recommend a reputable pharmacy (Permethrin)- Good price and quality.

I've been dealing with red bumpy rash that apears for about 10 to 15 min then dissapears ever since treatment began in october 2012 treatment is still ongoing just when I think im cured they came back and now I'm battleing this irritating rash it does bring a little serenity to finaly know what is going on since the doctors are not very informed in this area also very nerve wrecking. I thought I was alone on this one.:(

Sorry to say over the course of last 6 mths have seen dermatologist twice, immunologist once and three Gp's and used permethrin creams, sulphur creams tea tree oil creams and that all over and my surrounding and still the rash comes. I now am taking antihistamines and preying the immunologist was correct in saying my body is now hypersensitive to everything. It reassuring to no iIm not alone but 'what they!!' Do you do to return to normal none itchy red rashly life , I'm beginning to wonder if every I will.
