I had scabies. I used permethrin and lindane. But now i feel they crawing in my body. Is it normal?

In brief: It's OK

Unfortunately, this is a very common psycho-logic reaction to your diagnosis.
Many times when I have had a patient with severe scabies, i will itch for the next day or 2. It's only common nature to get a little "skeeved" out by knowing you had these little parasites in your skin.
