OK Alan. Here are my thoughts. Quite often scabies treatment is effective in killing the mites but their dead bodies can still cause symptoms for as much as two or more weeks after the treatment. That said, you may have a certain type of scabies--Norwegian scabies--that are impervious to Dr Scabies or to the traditional permethrin cream. So if you can hold out a little longer and use an antihistamine like benadry or Claritin for the itching this may resolve soon. However, if not, you'll need to see a doctor for an oral medication called ivermectin which is very effective for this particular type of scabies
