Red spots on torso, stomach. Taking permethren for scabies. Skin irritation post scabies?

I have little red spots on my back sides of torso and stomach . They rarely itch but do occasionally. Any idea what could be causing this? I also came in contact with scabies about 4 months ago but did 2 treatments a week apart with Permethren and 2 treatments with ivermectin a week apart. The last pill was taken November 1 and don t have spots anywhere else anymore and not itching like you do with scabies. Any thoughts on whether i still have scabies, post scabies reaction our something completely different?

hi dear , if u had contact with scabies surely it is a case of scabies infection only. the treatment u have taken is also adequate. in scabies once u r treated the itching remains for few months as a reaction to the dead insect. so dont worry much just apply calasoft lotion if it itches. thank u
