Scabies - healing
How does one know that scabies has healed & should treatment be re-administered if two treatments of Ascabiol have been used? I have been treating with Tetmasol soap twice daily as well. It seems as though the rash is changing to a brown colour & the itching is SUBSTANTIALLY less.

Unhappy, you can stop worrying as soon as the itching has stopped and all the redness has cleared up. Two treatments are usually enough and it should clear up within a week or so. Good luck.
