On One Hand: No, It Doesn't WorkThe recommended treatments for scabies by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention are "called scabicides because they kill scabies mites; some also kill mite eggs. Scabicides used to treat human scabies are available only with a doctor's prescription." Doctors do not recommend the use of over-the-counter treatments for scabies, as none have been tested or approved for this treatment. Even the lotions and shampoos recommended to treat scabies are only available by prescription from a doctor. If a scabies affected area becomes infected, prescription antibiotics are necessary.On the Other: Yes, It Can HelpAfter the scabies mites and eggs on your body have been killed by prescription drugs, the areas of your skin where they bit you may still itch for weeks afterward. This is when over-the-counter lotions, creams and ointments will be useful. A sulfur ointment like Mexico's Pomada de Azufre by De la Cruz may help with the itching and dryness associated with the scabies bites. Calamine lotion and antihistamines may also help soothe this allergic reaction.Bottom LineA sulfur ointment like Pomada de Azufre by De la Cruz cannot be used to cure a scabies infestation, you must see a doctor for prescription medications. After the scabies and their eggs are gone, over-the-counter lotions, ointments and creams to stop itch and soothe dryness will work well for the bite areas and resulting itchy skin. Always ask your doctor about medications you will need to treat any condition.

Your a fucking idiot. Sulfur can work. Permethrin, on the other hand, failed me multiple times. It along with the other scabicides reduce male hormone levels and have other serious side effects.
