Scabies Treatment and Seizure: I came back from Thailand with scabies. My doctor prescribed Permethrin Cream which I used for 3 weeks in a row. Then my husband showed the signs of scabies so 10 days later we both used the Permethrin. In the 10 days I tried Tea Tree Oil as a natural substitute. After using the Permethrin for the 4th time (I informed my doctor that I had used it 3 times before). I had a seizure for the first in my life at 45. I went to ER told the doc that i had probably overdosed on Permethrin. He claimed it is a topical and disregarded that. I was sent to a neurologist who did an eeg and mri on me and both were normal. Meanwhile my armpits burn and itch and I just developed a rash and bumps on my abdomen. I called the neurologist almost in tears and he wanted to prescribe another cream Croatin or something. I declined!!!! They don't get it. I don't want to die to get rid of them. Is there an expert in this area? I looked up tea tree oil and the active ingredient is a similar makeup to turpentine and has caused seizures and death in cats. The scabies has cost me 5,000 from my insurance deductible. these medicines are dangerous and nobody cares. The neurologist thought permethrin could cause a seizure if ingested orally! Doesn't it go into our bloodstream through the skin and effect our nervous system? I am not a doctor, but it seems obvious. I don't know where to turn.
