shakti, you may have really sensitive skin but i think if you have not treated since march, you may either still be infected or it could be something other than scabies. i would go back to my doctor, if possible.
however, my doctor told me it could take months for my skin to go back to normal. the allergic reaction from scabies can hang around for ages. i guess it depends on the person.
How long have you been cured? Do you still have some symptoms? If so do you mind sharing?

I have tried the ivermectin pills with BB, permethrin, malathion and Eurax. I even took ivermectin for 8 days straight with topicals for the skin and STILL keep getting new marks and burrows. I am at my wits end and don't want to live this way any more. Nothing seems to work! I am trying Ivermectin pills again and was wondering if anyone took the pills on days 1, 4 & 7 . The scabies lay eggs every 3 days so I would think its logical to treat on these days since the pills don't kill the eggs. Another problem I have is that the scabies are in my scalp. I've had marks on my face, neck and head. Does anyone know how to treat the upper part of the body for this infection?? Any comments or help would be very much appreciated.

I just treated my family this weekend, so 4 days ago. Does this really get as bad as all this? I have 5 kids, treated everyone and some of us JUST got bumps after treating with the perm cream. The stuff I'm reading here is scary at the least. I had no idea it just kept going.... Advice for large family very welcomed.

i only come here occasionally now, having been scabies-free for nearly a year. still really feel for you all, i guess that is why i keep coming back. i am hoping 'please help' has been cured by now.
for all it is worth, i am still adamant that perm is no good, and iver and BB are the way to go. my skin was still horrible after i did iver (stromectol) with topical BB, but about a month later i was back to normal after nearly six months of hell and numerous futile perm treatments. best of luck to you all xx.
I was wondering where you bought the BB from.
Thanks

Ask your doctor for atarax it's a good anti itching pill I take 25mg 3 times a day for 3 weeks. Also yellow soft paraffin in the skin soothes the itch but you must put it in the direction of your growth as used wrongly will block the hair paws and cause folicitis.you can even use the paraffin on your scalp provided it is used sparingly.

Good luck

you usually need to use at least a couple of treatments together to get rid of scabies. Chances are that you're still infected. Get hold of some permethrin cream 5% at least and apply head to toe including scalp while using ivermectin. Search these forums thoroughly and sort the wheat from the chaff as far as info goes- theres some great advice and some silly stuff. Usually natural remedies don;t work with scabies and you need 'the big guns' like iver and perm together.
