I have this intense itching on my testicles and I am almost positive it is scabies.

I have the lines and did the scratch test and found them. So... I went to a Dr. before I had any idea what it was and he told me my testicles itching is normal.

Not this much itching. Anyway, I decided after looking into it that it was scabies and used Liclear and Nix 5% permethrin cream to get rid of it. I've treated it a total of around 6 times.

Since its only my genitals I believe to be infected I've only treated that part four of the times. 2 other times I've treated my whole body. But this stuff wont go away.

Im extremely frustrated and wondering what I should do. Should I treat my whole body everytime? It's been a month since I began treatment and the area is still itching.. Should I just wait, I was wondering if treating the skin so much with a pesticide could be making my skin itch? Its gotten better in some parts.

Any ideas?
