Skin infection

I am suffering from scabies. I got to know about it after consulting a doctor. His treatment gave me relief for little time. But till date I am not fully cured from it. So I want you to please prescribe me some useful medicines and lotion that are easily available and which can cure  me from it as soon as possible.

Scabies is a contagious condition which can keep recurring unless you have done everything to get rid of it. All family members must be treated as well. Clothes should be washed again and dried in sunlight , pressed and used. Bed and bedsheets should be sun dried. Pets if any should be treated for the same. Apply permithrin cream overnight for entire body after bath and wash it off the next morning. Do not reuse the cream t is jyst one time application.
