In brief: Scabies

The most common treatment is a topical medication called elimite (permethrin).
Some of us like to use an oral medication called ivermectin.

In brief: Permethrin

Permethrin cream by prescription.
Sometimes you have to use it again after 2 weeks, and make sure you wash all used linens and treat exposed people. Rarely the might need pills to cure it. It is contagious.
