Q.

How do I get rid of scabies for good?

Started feeling extremely itchy in mid-June, about a month after I slept with a girl I was dating at the time. Went to a dermatologist and he diagnosed me with unspecified dermatitis, but I feared it was scabies, so I asked him to prescribe permethrin. He prescribed a 30ml bottle of Skabi Rid and told me to apply it from neck to toe two days in a row. Did that, and there was some cream left over, so I applied it again after a week. Washed my bedding in scalding hot water and left it in the sun to dry and also used bleach to disinfect everything I touch frequently. Itching got less intense, but it's still there. My brother also started started itching as well, which makes me fear my scabies treatment failed. Btw, both our derms don't believe it's scabies because we don't have any burrows or bumps in our fingers, but I just know it's scabies. His bumps are mostly on the stomach, while mine are on my shoulders, groin, waist and thighs. Is there anything I can use, other than permethrin, to rid myself of these mites? How do I get rid of these mites? Please please please help
