I was given Lice treatment creme for my scabies. I was still itching after a few applied lotions1%. I had to beg my dr. to given Stromectol to me.

Dr perscribed me one dose of 3mg - it took a couple of days to work was great - first real relief since this all started - but now he refuses to do retreat before 3mths - although he orignally stated could retreat in 2 wks - the itching is back and not going away - I question if dosage was enough and why not a retreatment
