Comment:
This drug works very well. The cream kills all mites on you, the problem is with all the mites that are not on you. I wash bed linins, clothes, towels, rugs, everything every day high temp wash and dry for 120 min. Mites WILL get on your scalp, in your eyes, nose, and mouth. 4 Urgent cares, 3 Dermatologists and no scabies diagnosis. Its pretty much up to you to keep going to keep treating with the ...

Contracted scabies from my workplace. Saw no bugs biting me, started on the right hand, knuckles, insides and webs of fingers, wrists, elbows. Bites go in tracks sometimes close, sometimes as far as an inch apart. They itch intensely. Prescribed Elimite. First application helped, but I wasn't really educated on re-infection. Even after three applications, I was still naïve about how caref ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have a very dry scalp, and I contracted scabies on my head, spreading over my neck and shoulders. I was given Elimite by my doctor, but is impossible to cover my body from top to bottom as instructed. The tube it comes in is not big enough to effectively cover an adult, especially one who is on the plus side. After one treatment, and in conjunction with antihistimine pills, my itches and bu ...

I have a MISDIAGNOSIS FOR 3 YEARS and JUST FOUND OUT THIS SKIN DISEASE IS SCABIES! My Primary Care Dr I saw initially told me I felt like I had bugs in my skin, moving, biting AND INTENSELY ITCHING because I have a Neurological disease? THAT is what was causing my discomfort? 7 Dermatologist's later, 4 Emergency Rooms, 1 Infectious Disease Dr, and I FINALLY GOT A DIAGNOSIS! I had to literally ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
My husband, 2 kids and myself have had this problem off and on for 2 months or so. It is very contagious and very nasty type of issue. We all have used the cream 3 times and this last time my 2 1/2 year old son broke out in hives. I seem to have scabies the worst out of my family and litterally have spent many nights in bed with a designated hairbrush just for itching. Its aweful. I feel like this ... Show Full Comment
