The standard Permethrin (Nix) treatment for Scabies is at least 50% ineffective and can cause further suffering.
Ivermectin is a safe and highly effective solution for parasitic infections including Scabies. It is used worldwide.
Ivermectin is not available in Canada and is by special order only.
By the time you find someone willing to diagnose you with scabies, you'll be full of lesions and will have spread it to everyone that comes in close contact with you.
To better address the needs of Canadians I suggest Health Canada change the status of Scabies to a reportable disease, and to make Ivermectin pills available to the public alongside Nix dermal cream as a first line treatment from any pharmacy.
