In brief: Difficult
You want to see a dermatologist and get a prescription for a medication like elimite (permethrin).
You will tx your whole body once, then repeat in one week. It is also critical to address your clothing linens , etc. Your dermatologist will go into details about how to address each area.

Dermatologists would help you, not yourself.
Use Elimite (permethrin) once a week for two consecutive weeks would eliminate it in most cases.
