Hi,

These medications are usually prescribed for the treatment allergic conditions of the skin. They are not helpful for scabies. For scabies treatment permethrin cream 5% or crotamiton lotion 10% or benzyl benzoate lotion or ivermectin tablet are found to be effective. I advise you to consult a dermatologist for proper clinical examination and appropriate treatment as suggested above.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
