Hi,

Scabies is highly curable. It needs immediate attention by a Dermatologist.

Scabicidal agents like 1.5% permethrin and crotamiton are useful. Fourderm is not helpful now. You have to apply it twice a day to the complete body. You may also need antihistamine drugs to relieve from itching.

Regards.
