Sometimes it is difficult to cure scabies as proper steps are not taken.
So go according to steps mentioned below,
1, All family members are to go for treatment,
2, Take shower at night and afterwards hard rubbing with towels which will open pores in which parasite lodges in.
Unless pores are not open lotion for scabies does not enter and parasites will not be affected.
3, Apply anti-scabies lotion all over body except face.
4,Do not put on clothes till lotion dried of.
5 Go for sleep and in the morning take shower.
6, Wash all clothes with chemical agents.
7, Repeat this application after a week if require.
8, Do not use clothes or towels used by other family members.
Ok and take care.
