Depends


In true scabies the mite dies after it is exposed to treatment (permethrin) fairly soon after treatment. However, and this is the gross part, the major reaction is to the scabies droppings left behind. This material is very irritating and causes the characteristic itching one experiences. This particular symptom can take weeks to "cool down" and may require topical or even oral steroids.

usually two weeks of treatment would be enough, but "itching" may linger, sometimes, up to months. The itching without "rash" makes some people believe their scabies still presented.

Scabies


Although sometimes referred to as the "seven-year itch," scabies can be effectively treated with killing of the mite Sarcoptes scabiei, preventing cross-contamination from a close contact and/or clothes/bedding sheets. Sometimes pruritus may be secondary to postscabetic dermatitis which in turn is secondary to the skin reaction to the scabies infestation that persists after effective eradication.
