finally relief

I was diagnosed with scabies 20 long months ago -- by then it was already out of control and reqired many treatments of permethrin to even get it under control. I desperately tried everything that was suggested here on this site from bleach baths to tee tree oil, sulphur, horse ivermectin, turpentine, nothing seemed to get rid of them completely. Finally out of shear desperation I insisted that my GP book me an apoitment with a dermatologist. She was around a 65 year old lady who looked at me from 5 feet away over her glasses and said, you may have had scabies at one time abut all you have now is a bad case of contact dermatitis. I thought she was crazy (she obviously hadn't been keeping up with what was going on with scabies now days) I COULD FEEL THEM CRAWLING ON ME even at the time, and my criteria for new treatment was always that I saw new burrows. I almost didn't fill the prescription thinking that it was a waste. Its now 1 month later and I am almost completely normal--just a few scars left of my arms and a compulsion to still change my clothes 3 times a day. I was just like you 2 months ago searching through this forum looking for hope, I am sure that some of you are just like I was, doing myself more harm than good . PLEASE CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITY

Do you still have the crawling feeling? You said you saw burrows, what was it? What med did the doc give you??
