if so,what kind? and how long?my daughter brought these in and we were all treated 10 days ago, we are to retreat in 4 more days, now I have bites on my face ! and my head is creepy crawly, the pharmacist said to use RID but the dr said use the cream, and why cant I just spot the bites if they only move 1-2mm from the bite mark?

Yes you can use it on the scalp and face. For once a doctor has given correct information, a rarity in this day and age of medical ignorance. Most healthcare professionals recommend not using it on the scalp and face, and so when people treat the body only, it results in the scabies simply migrating to the scalp and re-infesting the body after the perm cream is showered off.
