Had positive scabies since last November. Tried the doctors way first with little or no results. I did all of the scabies cleaning rituals diligently. These were tough little buggers and the meds did nothing but slow them. So I kicked it up a little. I bought 36.8 % permethrin and IGR(insect growth regulator). I mixed in a 1Qt spray bottle 1oz of perm and 8 ml of IGR filled with water and a squirt of lotion. IGR is safe for humans. I sprayed on at night after a shower getting all the coverage and extra on feet. Spray bottle works good for hard to reach spots like your back. I kept it on until the next days bath. The IGR takes some time to work but it will eventually. It will prevent them from maturing to reproductive age. The darn bugs liked my feet and crotch so I found they will not cross a deodorant line so I used right guard spray or even stick around my legs and waist. they won't cross the line. I've been feeling good for about 3 weeks now. going to start eliminating the perm from the mix. and slowly eliminate the IGR and deodorant last. Life is seeming brighter. GL
