Most people fail to understand the difference between post scabies and post scabies treatment. It is essential to know the proceedings of the condition, so as to ensure that the underlying mites have been eliminated completely.
One major difference between post scabies and scabies treatment is that post scabies are the infections caused by the dead mites and their leftovers whereas the post scabies treatment consists of the effects caused due to the chemicals. At the time when you have been treating for a long time, you would have both these problems, along with the active infestation.
If you are suffering from scabies, you must expect the same kind of feeling even during post scabies. For the most people, due to the constant crawling and pricking, most people do not even realise when they have been cured. As far as the post scabies treatment is concerned, you would continue to experience the sensations for weeks. Obviously, the pin pricks would stop within a few days but the dead mites in the body would continue to produce allergic reactions in the body.
Another difference between post treatment and post scabies is that during post scabies, you would feel intense itching in the affected parts; however the itching would last only for a few seconds. During the after treatment, you would still feel the itching sensation, even if the mites are completely eliminated. During the treatment process, you would also notice lesser nerve tingling and lesser muscle twitches. Mostly, these reactions are caused due to the heavy meds consumed for the condition.
