Suggest treatment for scabies

Hello doctor, a month back i had itches on my genetical parts and i went to a doctor and it was diagnosed as scabies..he prescribed me an monmate cream.. It stopped the itches but after a month i have some itchy sensations on same part but not severe itching. If i control my hands to prevent from scratching then there are no itches.. But the itching sensation tends to scratch.. can i use the monmate cream or any other..
