What is the best treatment for wood mites bites?

Trombiculidae: Itching can be helped with topical corticosteroids and antihistamines as well as hot showers or baths. In cases of severe dermatitis or secondary infection with chigger bites, a doctor should be consulted. Some apply petroleum jelly or painting nail polish over the chigger bite under the false belief that the nail polish will suffocate the chiggers under the skin, but it does not work that way.

Is it possible for more bumps to appear 2 days after permethrin treatment? I read that it's suppose to kill all the scabies mites but I have new bumps

Scabies symptoms: The symptoms of scabies -- itchy red bumps -- are not due to live mites, but the body's allergic reaction to the mites, their egg, etc. It takes a while for these to be absorbed and the immune reaction to stop. Therefore, itching and new bumps commmonly continue for several days after treatment. Hang in there; it will clear up! If it takes more than 10 days or so, contact your doctor.

Is it mites? Family is itchy but no rash. PA says try Nix (permethrin) as an overnight lotion, shower off in the am. Sound like reasonable course of treatment?

Is it mites? Family is itchy but no rash. PA says try Nix (permethrin) as an overnight lotion, shower off in the am. Sound like reasonable course of treatment?

Itchy Family: Treating the entire family for mites when the entire itches seems reasonable. Mites, on the other hand, should not cause loose stools. Loose stools along with rash make me think of viral or bacterial causes. Other environmental causes should be considered such as new laundry detergent, new soap, new carpet, new paint, new pet or recent travel and the related environmental exposures.

Can a rash from scabies spread after permethrin treatment of the mites are killed? Just did treatment last night, rash on cheek now, not itchy

Probably not but: Even if the mites are killed, they have left some droppings behind in the skin areas where they had visited. The allergic reaction to the droppings may linger on for a couple of more weeks. However it is uncommon to involve the face and thus the problem may not be scabies.
