I contracted Scabies in 10/26/17 and was asymptomatic until after 4 weeks. I received permethrine 5% treatment on 12/19/17 and a second treatment on 12/22/17. I cleaned everything religiously. After my treatments I noticed that all the areas that had a rash and the one tunnel I saw cleared up immediately. The itching never went away and I swear the itching is worse! They say it gets worse before it gets better but im having a hard time determining if I am reinfected. This week I have rash on my back in a area that was not red before. I am told that what was not showing before can appear after treatment. The "new" area does not look better as each day passes. However, I do not see any tunnels. I AM STILL VERY ITCHY. I was told by a nurse that I have to wait atleast 4 weeks to see if the treatment really worked. Its been only 10 days. Anyone have advice?
