new burrows appear during permethrin treatment

I am so frustrated! I've been trying to get rid of scabies for 4 weeks. 4 treatments of perm and today I took the Ivermetin pill (3mg). I am cleaning my bedding daily, mattress and pillows in zippered plastic casings, wiping everything with bleach in my house, using bedding spray in car on sofa, vacuuming daily, mop hardwood floors with bleach, use bleach in shower and shower curtain.
The only thing I have not done yet is bag up all the clothes in my closet. Should I do that? I am only wearing a few garments and washing them in hot water with Borax each wearing.
I am spray shoes with bleach or bedding spray, or even sometimes put them in the freezer for a few days. I spray my purse and book bag after each use, wipe my Iphone down with bleach.
I don't have time to continue with this routine (but I will, I'm desperate). I'm in nursing school and my program very time consuming. I'm pretty sure I got scabies from a pediatric patient I was caring for in the hospital.
I am devastated. My concentration and studies are going down hill. My nursing program is very intense, and I have to continue to get high marks or I'll be kicked out. And god forbid I tell them about my situation, they'd kick me out of the clinicals. I feel horribly bad about working with patients when I have an infectious skin problem, but I follow standard precautions strictly. I can't get kicked out of school. I've spent thousands of dollars on this program.
I don't even sleep in same bed as my husband for fear of infecting him (he shows no symptoms, although had him use the perm 3 times too). He thinks I'm 'over reacting' and getting crazy about all the cleaning. And he's really mad at me for now being intimate with him right now.
Today I went to the vet to get the Revolution treatment for the dogs and cats. I am fearful to even touch my pets, which for me is devastating, since I have no kids, the pets are my babies.
I don't know what else I can do to stop this.
I do the perm treatment, and feel ok for maybe a day or two, and then the bites, pin pricks, and burrows start again in new places.
Tonight I have the perm on again, and 5 new white or reddish sort of thick burrows appeared in a new place on body. WTF? why is this happening when the cream is currently on?
I pretty much hate my life right not. Seriously, I've considered suicide if I can't make this go away soon. I am itching myself until I bleed. The cortisone and oral antihistamine only works for a few hours. Certainly not long enough to get any real sleep,
I knew more about scabies than the doctor that I saw! I am looking for another good doctor. Why don't doctors really know anything about scabies? If anyone knows a good doctor in the Sacramento, CA area, I'd love to hear it.
Please, I'd love to hear some encouragement. I don't know how much longer I can take this.
For the record, I had scabies when I was an 11 year old child and it was devastating. My mom had a hard time trying to rid my brothers and I of it. It probably took about 6 months then. That was 30 years ago though. At that time, Kwell was the treatment of choice. However, the traumatic experience back them is making me freak out even more now.

You should bag up all items and thoroughly clean your home before and after scabies treatment as people are often re-infected by items in their home or other family members. Treat your entire family even if they do not show signs of scabies they likely have them.
If permethrin treatments are not working you should try sulfur treatments as they do a better job of penetrating the skin deep enough to kill scabies and eggs. In more severe cases of scabies people may need both topical and oral treatment.

It finally dawned on me what's been going on here on this forum. These people from Naturasil tried to take over this ENTIRE forum, by belittling and getting people to zero in on their website, by slyly getting people to click on the above link, which ultimately takes you to a homeopathic and herbal website which will NEVER cure scabies.
Look at these reviews on one of their products for removing skin tags. I have never seen such poor reviews on products on Amazon. I am surprised that Amazon even carries their products.
I can bet you that "Fred" was the owner of this website and created so many threads on herbals and homeopathic threads that only led to bullsh*t cures for scabies.
What a crock....
here's the link to one of their products.
If you read about the owner of Naturasil it appears that he is a humanitarian, but from they have been doing here since 2010, is a moral sin.
It's funny what people do when there is money involved.
