Treated for scabies 30 hrs ago with po Ivermectin. I sanitized EVERYTHING. Just broke out w/ new itchy red bumps. Does this mean treatment failed?

In brief: Reassess diagnosis

Either it's not scabies, or the source is somewhere you haven't accounted for. See your doc to explore other possibilities such as bed bugs, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, syphilis, or many other diagnoses.
