I’m using Permethrin and Compound W. The Compound W. is the bunker buster. If you have hard callous-like areas (the bunkers) then you really need the . It’s used for warts so it has to be pretty strong , and it is. Permethrin is only good for light duty (as in machine guns). The CW is like a nuclear bomb went off as far as scabies is concerned. I did try borax & hydrogen peroxide. It wasnt effective on the bunkers though. Just a heads up on that. At least you don’t need a Rx for the Compound W. Hoo-rah!
