I was looking online but couldn't find any trustworthy websites that could give me this information. I have scabies. I have so many questions about this. I was in too much shock when the doctor at the clinic told me what they were. I applied the lotion like two hours ago. If I use the bathroom do I have to reapply it again?

And am I suppose to use the whole bottle? Or just as much as I need to cover my skin?

Do I clean my house before I use the treatment, during the treatment or after?

Any help with these questions will be greatly appreciated!

Best bet? Call your doctor back and ask all of these questions.

We can't ever tell a user here how to use a medication they were dispensed for a health condition, because the prescribed use isn't always the same. With something like birth control pills, that's one thing, but with treatment for an infection, you want to talk to your doctor.
