Unhappy itching. scabies maybe?

at the end of march me and the rest of the family seemingly caught scabies from my cousin. we used the elimite 5% cream and it went away. except i think i never got rid of it. i used the cream 3 times tho. now i'm still itching really bad and the dr gave me more of the cream and an antibiotic. i don't think it's helping any. last week the dr decided to try prednizone and an antihistamine. it didn't help.
but i don't know what's going on cause i don't see how i could still be itching and nobody else in the house has re-caught it from me. considering how easily it spread among us initially (tho my brother somehow never got it).
i had gotten scabies about 10 years ago and i had a hard time getting rid of it then, but this is crazy. even my ears itch.

Re: itching. scabies maybe?

eh, don't think it's that
but last night i again, for the fifth time, used the elimite cream. taking antibiotics as well, almost through with my 10-days of that. still itching tho...
if it's scabies i dunno how it's still with me, but it seems strange it would start the same time as everyone else who presumably did have scabies...
