In brief: Once

It is recommended that you wait 9-10 days before repeating it.
There is resistance to the medication now and therefore it may not be effective. Also itching may continue if you have scabies infection even though the mite has been killed. You should see your doctor to see if another medicine needs to be prescribed.
