Brief Answer:
Ivermectin day 1, 15 & 29, lindane lotion

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I understand your concern but if your HIV is not responding to treatment I would recommend you to take tablet ivermectin 200 microgram per kgbody weight on day 1 and repeat it on day 15 and 29 .
Besides this if repeated applications of permethrin are not effective go for lindane lotion and repeat if aftrer 1 week.
These are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
