I must add my 2 cents into this as well,our whole family was treated back in May, I guess somehow we got reinfected again in June and we had to retreat ( son picked up at daycare ), so after spending hundreds of dollars with two full treatments 7 days apart twice, having the carpets & furniture prof. cleaned, both cars cleaned prof, I was washing sheets and laundry daily, it was not as simple as put the cream on, wash your sheets and laundry and poof they go away, I was losing my mind because we kept getting bumps well through the summer, my neck was horrible, our son kept getting pop up rashes on his hands, ankles, head, neck, we treated two more times 7 days apart, it was a nightmare. my clothes itched, our skin was a mess, I was depressed because I didn't know what else I could do, I started using Neem soap, it was not a cure all, but I just figured why not, weve done all these treatments and we took the ivermectin, I had read that Neem would stop the reproduction cycle, not kill them overnight, it is now January, and my skin has improved, I still have rashes and bumps that pop up and our son still gets the rashes on his elbows & ankles and hands, we know longer have scabies now its eczema from the scabies. the itching has greatly improved but scabies is no joke, I say all that to say, all that extra treatment we did was unnessasary, I should have came to this sight and saw soooo many people continue to get bumps, break out for months after they are incially treated, keep your chin up, it does get better

You can buy horse paste at the feed stores and it has the same ingredients as the stuff you get from the doctor. Don't let the Scabies get in your eyes.

I used premethrin cream (5%) on Sunday and I will reapply tomorrow, which is, I understand, the typical treatment plan; however, in the meantime, I now have little bumps with a white top. They do not look like a typical "white head" pimple, they're smaller, almost like a pinprick. When squeezed VERY firmly a small firm white substance comes out, but is not pus. Does anyone else have this? Does anyone know what it is?

Myself my partner and our two children got scabies. We treated gor them sat night and on Sunday I still felt itchy sun night my partner hardly slept he was so itchy and we both have new spots mine are pin prick around hands and fingers his are larger red spots on arms. Kids don't seem to be too bad. I haven't seen any burrows but I never seen any before treatment either. I'm not sure if it's in my head but I think we still have them I'm so upset I cleaned the house with bleach and hot water changed beds put plastic on mattresses cleaned floors and couch and then I steam cleaned the couch. I bagged up all the clothes I couldn't wash and everything else I put on a hot wash and dried in dryer. I steamed the shoes but haven't even put them on since Saturday it's now Monday. I don't know what else I could have done. I'm thinking maybe doing the bleach bath for me and my partner??

Do notdo anything that you haven't already done, after your followup treatment, give it time, read all the comments here, they will all tell you they still get bumps for days, weeks or even months, itchy skin is normal, expect it, try some neem lotion and soap, something gentle for your skin, it will get better but it takes time, chin up :)

thanks for your reply! I honestly feel so helpless but I do feel better today 4 days after my first treatment. We will do the second at the weekend. The problem is my partners boss has it too as do a lot of his family who seem to think it's not a serious condition and haven't bothered getting treated. He isn't going into work at the moment but that can't go on indefinitely. My partner is starting to think I'm mad because I'm constantly telling him and the kids not to do this or that all in a effort to get rid of these things and it will all be a waste of time if he goes back to work and brings them home again! I can't cope with doing this again and again and living with the constant itch. It the kids having it that breaks my heart&#128542;

So my partner went to the doctor and he told him it's clearing up and he doesn't need a second treatment and he can go back to work with the people who have it and haven't been treated he prob won't get it again..... I was sure that he would tell him not to go near anyone infected! Myself and the kids are going to the doctor this evening and I'm coming out of there with enough cream for a second dose for the whole family!! The doctor told him he would have to get down on the ground naked with someone infected to get them again.... Sorry but I don't think I or my kids did any of that to catch them in the beginning! Such a stupid thing to say! Of course he is going back to work where he will get them again and give them to us. And of course I'm crazy for going to extreems to get rid of them.... Wow I worry about the intellect of some doctors honestly! Oh did I mention he printed him off info that said a second treatment was needed and to stay away from anyone infected until they are treated and reinfestation happens when close contacts are not treated. Didn't even read the info he handed out...

Wow smh at the stupid idiot doctors nowadays.. Did you treat your kids too? We treated ours first bc they had symptoms (well one did and she shares a room with the other and they play in eachothers beds) and the doc said to only treat my one daughter so we didn't end up doing the treatments at the exact same time so I'm thinking it was all for nothing just because of the two stupid doctors who said to only treat ONE person who had symptoms.. So annoying!! Still getting pin pricks and scratch marks I think it's because we didn't treat at the same time

You will itch after the cream anyway it's very harsh on your skin. Yes treated both kids myself and my partner at the same time. My doc said not to treat the kids again but I could treat myself again if I wanted a lot of good that will do if we still have them we all need to be retreated. My skin is very itchy today too. I asked the doc how soon will I know if it didn't work and he kind of laughed and said it will work. He didn't look at one spot on me or my kids either.... He didn't come near us.

Hello everyone,
I'm in need of knowledge and help. Today I went to the doctor because of this rash that the bumps are like raised almost like prickly heat on my wrist on my legs I have several patches that feel as if I had a dull razor that gave me razor burn. Those bumps that pop up. I do not itch they are not red nor pimply. The dr looked at my finger and I have a small red dot she gets another doctor he said scabies. So here's the help I need not one person here has said they have them but don't itch. My rash came almost 3 months ago, wouldn't I have gone insane? Also I think I've been misdiagnosed, any thoughts? I did use the elimite that they told me to, I don't have small kids haven't had any close contact or sexual partners. Please let me know. The rash I have also has not spread. So I don't have any new areas. I've looked on the Internet at pics and have seen nothing like my rash.

Just did our third dose of cream. It's two am and I'm only getting into bed after cleaning... I'm getting more and more depressed with these little f***ers I couldn't be doing more. I went to doc again who seems so sure we are cured even tho I told him I seen new burrow marks on me and my son he said it's unlikely he asked if my son had worms..??? Honestly I think that doctor is so stupid. Burrow marks only mean one thing. I'm sick of the isolation. Also my son needs an operation and we can't go to a hospital with scabies. I have started to mix tea tree with everything and I use a 1 to 1 bleach spray to clean couch and I steam clean my sons buggy and bouncer all our shoes and my daughter school bag. I was everything on hot and leave them to dry naturally either outside on clothes line or on the clothes line then put them in dryer for half an hour or 40 mins floors and toilet seat are waged with bleach and I put raw bleach in the shower tray. I use Milton on cups plates bowls you name it I disinfect it! I'm praying it works this time in so depressed at the moment.

I have done the perm treatmeant 3 weeks in a row and washed all bedding and clothes and stuff. The bumps and itching definitely went down. The previous bumps got sort of a white head or dried up spot. Is this the debris coming out? And i have new little bumps that are itchy but no where near the misery feeling of what it was before. Is this normal after treatment?

I've been dealing with this since April 4th. After two treatments of the cream and the pills I was still itching. The doctor said I didn't have scabies anymore so he sending me to a dermatologist. In the meantime I remembered how my grandmother use to treat itching from anything so I decided to try it. After my morning shower I sponge down with a gallon of water with 1/2 cup of baking soda added. I might be "cured" by the time I go to the specialist. The itching is almost gone except under my breasts and the groin area but I'm still working on those spots that were infected really bad. For my face I've been using Queen Helene mint facial. My face actually feels real good now. I had 2 spots in the hair line on the back of my head that just wouldn't stop so this morning I'm treating them with the facial pack. It's important to help your skin go back to normal so I'm also using Niva cream all over at night. The dryness seems to be going away.
