Ivermectin was prescribed by my Dr. to treat scabies when two tx of Premethrin cream were not effective. Very happy with results. No new bumps after second dosage of Ivermectin. Took 2 doses two weeks apart as prescribed by Dr. No side effects except slight nausea after second dosage...doesn't last long, only a couple of hours.
