If I treat myself with ivermectin scabies treatment and wash everything tomorrow such as clothes, sheets...won't I just get reinfected from new mites?

In brief: Scabies

If you have taken care of any contaminated bedding and clothing and have treated yourself the answer should be no.
The scabies can not live without a blood food after two to three days. Check put this link http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/scabies/treatment.html

In brief: Not necessarily

As long as you have completely treated yourself, your belongings and close contacts, you won't necessarily get reinfected.
