After treating scabies with first dose of permethrin is it ok to still be itchy? Especially at night? Granted it's not as bad as before.

In brief: Yes

the itching can last for a week sometimes which is why I recommend an antihistamine or steroid and repeat treatment for another week.
Get checked if your symptoms persist . Good luck
