Battled an awful case of scabies for over two months. Treated with permethrin, which only made matters worse, as it turns out I'm allergic to one or more of the ingredients in it. Thankfully, there is Benzemul.
I followed the directions and did a test patch first--I cannot stress enough the importance of doing this. I tested at full strength on a few areas of my body and found that I needed to reduce the strength of the solution by half for my groin area, as the skin there is very sensitive. All other areas of my body, I was able to use this at full strength, as directed. It did have a drying effect on my skin following the 24-hour application. Bumps still appeared after the treatment and the itching did linger around for several days--although it became considerably less intense after a few days. Moisturizing lotion applied everyday following the treatment helped tremendously, and within a week I felt much better. I also did a second treatment seven days after the first, just for my own peace of mind.
Wish I had the convenience of simply walking down the street to my local pharmacy to purchase this medication. I live in the U.S. and Benzemul isn't sold here in our pharmacies; if it were, I'm sure it would have a $1,000 price tag slapped on it (no joke! Lol). I'm just glad I found SuperPharmacyPlus online and am grateful for how helpful the staff was in addressing my concerns and expediting the shipment of Benzemul to me.
