Customer Question

Hi! My three year old was dx with scabies. Nightmare of our lives.. We were all treated with ivermectin 3 x every two weeks due to allergies of the topical for her.. After first treatment they said she was clear.. We never had supposedly..Im itching even though i supposedly never had,and have been seen twice by my derm. Said i do not have. My question is can scabies cause hives to come and go? And is ivermectin 3x every two weeks curable for scabies?

Yes this is curable.
Hives can be related or unrelated.
Hives are non specific and do not necessarily indicate any disease or infestation, but can also indicate an allergy.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
