Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.

Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
But, do you know the name of what you used?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
it called all natural home treatment for scabies
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
So, you have not used any prescription products?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

no prescription product just all natural enzemzes

 

Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
WEll - you need to use a product called Permethrin - and so this is a prescription product and this will kill the scabies.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
we heard that rx does not work and is not good for you any others suggestions?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
Okay - the reason why the permethrin will not work - is because the scabies are gone, but then you have remaining infections such as a staph infeciton - so you might also need antibiotics to get rid of the staph or you might have contact dermatitis too which might require a steroid cream such as Triamcinolone cream.
I hope this helps.

ok so how do i use prementhine?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
Permethrin is a cream that is applied to the affected area.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
so we buy that and only put on infected area? we can still feel them crawling on us after the treaments and hot oil treatments
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
This is something that needs to be applied to all infected areas.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
will this kill the bugs or the eggs or both?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
Will kill the bugs and prevent new bugs from coming out.
