    It has been nearly 2 weeks since my son and I were diagnosed. The rest of the family have had no symptoms but have been treated. The two of us have applied the cream twice and tonight will make the third. We both still itch and may have to go back to the doctor. I read the other reviews and one of the reviews said that it is the same thing that is in dog shampoo...She was right it is.
