Our family Doctor proscribed thinking the rash my daughter had was scabies but no other family member had symtoms well turns out my daughter was allergic to milk products again, well this meds gave her a red rash all over that lasted for 10 days what a mess, to cause little one so much itching and pain for nothing so I recommend making sure your youngester has scabbies before using.

This stuff is terrible, unless you catch the scabies early I guess. Like most, I had them for months before being diagnosed. Burned the genitals TERRRIBLY, almost unbearable. They really seemed to clear up for a couple days, and now two weeks later they're even worse than ever.

Seems like it does nothing at first, at night the itching is unbearable, used it three days ago and still no noticable signs of going away, if anything I feel like it has spread more. must be patient.

The only problem I had was a subjective hotness, as if my sweat glands were clogged and were not working properly. However, as I did not overheat at all, it must have been a mere sensation. The drug cleared up my scabies infection very quickly.

I have had to treat over and over again with this product, seemed to help a little until I wen to bed. I recomend buying a bed cover so you don't get reinfested. Also for adults you may want to try Dog shampoo for additional treatments. This has the same product (Permethrin) in it. hope this helps.
