I've used permethrin 4 times for suspected scabies. I treated my home. I know the itchiness persists, but is it normal to get new bumps?

In brief: Scabies

This can be diagnosed by skin scrapings under the microscope.
If you have actually had these four times you need to have some exterminator visit your house, and you must treat everybody in it at the same time.
