In brief: Permethrin 1% vs 5%.

If you are using any over the counter permethrin, the 1% version, you may not be using a product strong enough to deal with this problem. There is also a new approach, one with pills that is very effective as well.
Please let your health care provider know that you are having ongoing problems.
