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. ...Read more

In the meantime, avoid fragrances in soaps, detergents and fabric softeners. Wash with tepid not hot water, and do not over-scrub (all these things make itching worse). Pat dry. ...Read more

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. Meanwhile treatments for the itching such as antihistamines or anti-itch lotions such as sarna lotion should help. ...Read more

It takes weeks after treatment to get rid of residual inflammation after treatment and thus the rash ...Read more

Itching after scabie: Scabies treatments often contain a high percentage of alcohol which can be very drying to the skin. All of the little bumps are remnants of where the mite lived in skin.
