so here is my situation,
about 4 months ago i got infested with scabies, im pretty sure it was from a girl i had a one night stand with, because i noticed her waking up itching in the middle of the night. i didnt think much of it then and she didnt warn me about anything probably because she didnt know it herself that time. anyways, about 6 weeks passed and i started getting the usual symptoms: severe itching at night (mostly in groin area), bumps and scratches here and there. it apeared to get worse by the day. after a week of sleepless nights i contacted my doctor, he immediatly waved me off by saying i should change my shampoo or other products i might be using on my skin. i knew that it probably was something more serious but decided to wait it out a few more days, changing skin products didnt help obviously. by this time i did my own research and found out about scabies, which i discussed with my doctor, he told me it didnt look like scabies but send me to a dermatologist, and surprise, it was scabies. got a iver/perm cream treatment and a week later did my 2nd perm treatment. he gave me a extra tube of perm just in case, which i used as a 3rd treatment out of paranoia again approx 10 days later. i felt immidiate relief, slept like a baby. anyways, about 2 months have passed since my last treatment. i have been itchy here and there but nothing like the severe itch we are all famillair with here. i have been getting bumps that come and go, mostly at the exact places. im pretty sure i have dealt with these little b******s. but like most of you know, the worst thing about this disease is the paranoia it causes. every now and then im almost certain im re-infested, and a day later im sure im not, crazy right? ive been seeing what i think are burrows, but might aswell be scratches. im serverly itchy, and most of the itch i get dissapears without me touching it. my real question is, what if i got re-invested, how much time would it need to go to the fully severe itching that keeps you up at night. i imagine a re-infestation would need some time to spread before it goes berserk on you, so it would start with a light itch going worse by the day. or would it keep you up at night after a couple of days?
