That's a lie, you do see bumps after you do a p-cream treatment. The bumps can pop up at anytime. Doesn't mean you have morgs or Lyme. P-cream is strong, and can cause you to have ecezema or other skin problems.
Mara does your bumps itch? Do they come and go?

I agree you can get bumps and itch for ages and retreating makes it worse and so does listening to a lot of the posts on here.

heres my deal ~ I have a daughter who has lupus, she came home from school one weekend and was scratching like a meth addict, we went to 5 doctors over a period of a month and they kept giving her steriod shots, eventually she landed in the ER and a dr dx her with scabies, we are raising her son ( hes 2 ) and he and myself got the rash too, weve done the perm treatment twice and the baby still has new bites, the derm said now he has eczema, so she gave me this cream and its helped him but he has new sores on his head and I have bumps that keep popping up and still itching like a crazy person, we go to a new derm Mon, the old derm said they cant scrape, they have to do a biopsy, and that it was very hard to find scabies anyhow, I CANNOT do another perm treatment, my feet and hands have just stopped tingling after 3 weeks, I bought some coconut oil and wanna try the neem oil, but nervous, not sure how much to use( as far as drops )or maybe use neem soap not sure what to do for the babys head either, my daughter is still broke out and scratching too, my husband is clear !! any help?

Mara I recommend doing iver pills (stremcol sp?) they will help. Ask your doc for a rx. tell them your allergic to the perm cream. Make sure you clean everything. Shoes, bags, baby toys if you can't wash it I would freeze it for at Least 24 hours. Is the itch at least less then it was? If you have pets treat them also

are those pills safe? I was nervous enough using perm cream twice, did you have any side effects?

With all meds there are side effects. I used the pills and I am cured.

can scabies survive for a year in a swimsuit?

i had scabies on the groin last year after a visit to cancun, mexico. after months of suffering i went to the doc. the first 2 doctors failed to diagnose it, the 3rd one prescribed me ivermectin and permethrin after i told him about what i read in blogs. it worked.

but i went to the beach recently, and apprently i got reinfected in the groin and buttocks.=( could it be that i used the same swimsuit stored in the same old wood drawer for over a year?

i just took the ivermectin pills. and ill retake them next week.

Im still battling with bites & pin prick crawly sensations after 4wks of perm every 7days. Im asking for antihistamines & iver today! I have empathy for you all. What really annoys me is there's no info about post scabies ANYWHERE! i thought ide had it figured with ironing everything & steam cleaning everything many times a day. Im sure i got reinvested from emptying my bagless vac even tho i left it outside for 3days before hand. Iv now mixed benzemul with water & sprayed everywhere i go. I think my cat is spreading the mite with his feet so iv shut him out of my room & Im sitting on a plastic chair that he can't get on. Im steaming before i touch. Also leaving out my pots, cuttlery on bench to steam before i touch. I pray this will help. It has to! I will let you all know if it worked. Thankyou & bless you all.

I had scabies for about three months. At first i thought it was chicken pox. Doc said i was scabies and gave me cream. I was still itching a could weeks later and got the pills. The Doc didnt make it seen life it was serious. I went two weeks ago for check up, they said it was gone but lately ive been feeling Little nips and i itch but gave no bumps. I think its going around at work. Am i reinvested or over reacting?

I have taken 1 oral treatment of stromectol and instructed to take a 2nd dose 7-10 after. It has been 7 days tomorrow and I am taking the 2nd dose. I had calmed down 1st part of the weak but am breaking out in bad itchy rash last few days. I covered myself with Head & Shoulders extra strength (20 minutes) Monday night then Tuesday night lathered up with Selsum Blue Medicated for 20 minutes from under chin to tips of my toes. I change sheets every night, never wear the same thing twice, clean with clorox, and sleep in the guest room with mattress covered in Borax then a layer of plastic, then my sheet. covered the couch with borax and covered with sheet for a week. use plastic gloves to do my husbands laundry and have become a prisoner of my own home. I touch no one, and cannot let my grandchildren in my home, nor can I hold them, or go to their home. And I am at loss as to how I got it. Have not been in hotel, nor been around anyone with scabies. And I am feeling hopeless that I will ever get rid of it. It's this phantom affliction with too many ways to fool us. My daughter just informed me today that she booked flights for she and her 2 babies in September to come see us and I cannot guarantee I will be free of this plague! I use every anit itch cream and spray I can get my hands on. I shower every morning and every night. I feel I am going mad! Can anyone give advice? Thank you for listening...

I've been treated for scabies and it's been about 2 weeks since my second application of the cream, and I'm still getting new bumps. I have one white bump on my hand, should I be worried? Is it post scabies?

heres a good way to find out if it post or your reinfected..has it spread? how bout anyone else in the house? with scabies, you never know..and thats a bitch. stromectol is what worked in my house after we had been treated 4 times. this should be first line treatment without the side effects of the cream. its been 3 months and i still get bumps here or there that itch like crazy but Ive had two followup biopsies and both were negative, it plays tricks on your mind, I use theraneem soap and lotion twice a day for the itch and dry my bedding 30 min every night, my husband says this is ridiculous but after what I went thru, nothing is crazy. thank goodness for this forum, it helped me keep my sanity
