Doctors Don't Know Scabies - honest answers
Posted in the Scabies Forum
I was diagnosed with scabies in March of this year, went through much of what most on this site describe and am cured.
There's a lot of anxiety, confusion and misinformation on this site, though it was very helpful to me as a support source when I was in the thick of it.
I created a blog post about my findings, and believe it will help each and every one of you suffering with this condition to give it a read.
Since: Apr 13
I read your post Bianca and it is very correct in that you need to do a second treatment 7 days later to kill off any mites that may have incubated and survived. Also scabies can live above the neckline and happens in more severe cases or the scabies treatments themselves can force the mites to live above the neckline which is why the creams are put on full body because they will just move onto other areas of the skin. In all reality Doctors have very little time for people with scabies as it is very contagious and they just want to prescribe you the cream so they can get you out.
You would get more answers from a skin specialist who would also be able to give you a skin scrapping to identify the mite which can make treatment easier.
