I keep reading a bunch of people saying that the Permethrin did not work. This is most likely not the truth.

I have been suffering from scabies for almost a year now. I have done the creme 6 times and still no relief. My knees and elbows are all scarred up because of the scratching. There's gotta be a better medication for this. It's driving me crazy.
