Using permethrin 5% lotion now & washing bed sheets, will they get infested again tonight? Do I have to wash them again tomorrow?

I had scabies. I used many times permethrin cream and lindane lotion. Now i don't feel ithing just i feel they crawing in my body.Is it normal?

What happens to me if i apply a second treatment of permethrin cream before the 2 weeks recommend? I did one last night and want another now! help me
Not needed: Assuming your treatment was for scabies , even though a second treatment this soon would not be harmful, it also would be of little value. Treatment with Permethrin does not immediately cure the itch of scabies. It usually takes at least two weeks for the itching to subside .
