    I ended up getting mites (mange) from a puppy I bought from a breeder. The dog mites cannot live on humans, but as long as your dog has them, they can affect you, and they did.

    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. I am on my second dose.I hope it works cause my dr. refuses to give me any oral meds for this. She only prescribes 1% lice treatment lotions to treat scabies.

    I took this medication after five rounds of permethrin cream each 7 days apart. The cream did not work because if you missed a single small part on your body the treatment failed. I was prescribed 5 3mg tablets of stromectol taken on an empty stomach before bed, then repeat in 5 days. I had to beg my doctor for this treatment. Its now been one week since the second dose and almost all itching is g ... Show Full Comment
