Product Description


The hallmark of scabies is intense itching especially at night, regardless of age. The intensity of itch causes an infested person to scratch the skin vigorously. Scabies is highly contagious and may affect the entire household in a short period of time.

DANGERS OF SCRATCHING: Scratching can lead to inoculation of the skin with bacteria (particularly Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes), leading to the development of Impetigo (skin sores), especially in the tropics. Impetigo can, in turn, be complicated by deeper skin infection such as abscesses, as well as serious invasive disease and sepsis in infants. In tropical settings, scabies-associated skin infection is a common risk factor for immune-mediated complications such as acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (kidney disease) and possibly rheumatic heart disease. Evidence of renal damage can be found in up to 10% of children with infected scabies in resource-poor settings and, in many, this persists for years following infection contributing to permanent kidney damage. Recurrent infestations are common (Source: World Health Organization). Aside from these complications and physical disfiguration caused by having scabies infestation, anxiety and sleeplessness are also brought about by excessive itching and scratching.

A proactive and immediate solution for itching without the dangerous adverse effects of using steroids and hydrocortisone is through the use of a topical anesthetic cream. Dr. Scabies® highly recommends Dr. Numb®  Topical Anesthetic Cream with 5% lidocaine as FAST-ACTING ITCH RELIEF in combination with various Treatment Kits for Scabies. It is not homeopathically prepared but it is the safest and most effective analgesic and antipruritic solution that can be used by adults and children.

DR. NUMB® is an over-the-counter topical anesthetic cream approved by Health Canada. It is applied to skin to relieve pain and/or itching by depressing cutaneous sensory receptors.

  1. Works effectively for what it says it does.

    Posted by joonuts   Verified Purchase

    I like that this one is not messy. It's nice enough to stay where you put it, not running all over the place. I have scabies and scratching makes the skin never heal. Responds very well in numbing my itchy skin

  2. quite soothing

    Posted by alisalem737   Verified Purchase

    These mites feast on my legs every night, I can feel them and it's creeping me out. The bites are miserable and itch like craaazy. This stuff rubbed in well stops and speeds healing the itch. Great stuff

  3. easy to carry.

    Posted by Noel A   Verified Purchase

    This product is great for travel, which I do a LOT. It works wonders not just for scabies but also for insect bites as long as you apply it as soon as you are bit. Reduces swelling and is easy to apply - a lot less messy than ointments and sprays.

  4. Hats off to whoever invented this

    Posted by johnlocke_5   Verified Purchase

    I was itching and heating up some pain so bad last night that I could only manage to stay asleep 3 hours last night. For really bad itches, this is really the product to use. It is faster than any medications

  5. The relief is rapid and it works as advertised.

    Posted by au.driee   Verified Purchase

    I am a 30 year-old female and actually bought this with high hopes. I wasn't disappointed and its working so amazing I wanted to share this to people who may be struggling the same itchiness. Truly recommend to anyone who has a bad itching. This will works perfect.

  6. haven't found anything better to relieve the itch

    Posted by mcorfire2   Verified Purchase

    My scabies are super red, and itch like crazy. This stuff helps! When I initially apply it, it satisfies the itch in almost minutes. The next day I apply more and it knocks it out. I have only used it for scabies, so I can't say if it works for other bites.

  7. Lifesaver!

    Posted by kathy.toeberry   Verified Purchase

    Putting this on replaces the itch with a numb feeling. It really does help take away the itchiness. I use it almost daily for a recurring itch and it relieves the itch, leaving the skin feeling clean. I buy more than one to keep on hand & pray that it never gets discontinued. Try it and see if it's for you.

  8. Back to old self

    Posted by hannah ms   Verified Purchase

    The worst part of having scabies is scratching all night when you're supposed to be sleeping. I would have deep scratch marks almost every night. I couldn't sleep, move, or do anything all day. This went on for months (my medications don't help) until I came across this one. There were so many other things that I would have rather spent the money on, but realistically I wouldn't have been able to enjoy any of those things while scratching and itching. So yes, this stuff actually works. I believe that the money was well worth it, and yes, these reviews are actually true! I am back to my old self again.

  9. Offers soothing relief to the skin

    Posted by joshb.17   Verified Purchase

    after applying cream last night, I was able to sleep. This morning I did a full treatment and my skin feels so much better. So if you are really going crazy with scratching and itching this is worth the money for some peace of mind.

  10. Glad I discovered this one!

    Posted by miss_k   Verified Purchase

    I suffered endless nights of itching, this product could not get here fast enough.
    I felt immediate relief after just one use of the cream. Since this is the most horrible thing to try and get rid of, I will have to re-purchase another tube for the rest of my household. I recommend this to anyone who wants instant relief.
