How can scabies be treated?

I recently was diagnosed with Scabies, I am in the process of cleaning a home that has been sitting for 15 years. I have done the treatment with the cream, steriods, benadryl from my doctor. Things cleared up. I was back at the home working again this weekend and they are back. How do I rid the home of them so I don t repeatedly get them.

itis a contagious disease. you have contacted from a source. should not use steroid. only medication recomanded is benzyl benzoate or ascabiol. maintain hygiene and sanitation. clean the linen and bed sheet etc you are using and get them sun dried. apply in your body and allow it to dry down on your body.try to detect the source of infection and maintain distance from it. aplication of ascabiol should be repeated several time.
