There is no hope of getting rid of scabies unless you get a pill called Ivermectin. Ivermectin is also used to treat mites in animals. I know, my doctor gave me the pills. Scabies are resistant to Elimite and all other treatments except IVETRMECTIN. Ivermectin is also used to treat worms. Only uninformed doctors still use things like Kwell, Urax and Elimite. If you doctor does not give you Ivermectin, don't pay the bill and report him for incompetance. GODD LUCK.
