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 quickly and effectively

    Posted by Chiara Caterini   Verified Purchase

    We were unable to determine the cause of the itching and this was a great resolution to itching, my husband tried everything and found this worked. Very nice cream.

  2. Trust me- it's worth it

    Posted by millefleurs   Verified Purchase

    If you're itching' real bad, this is what you want. I came home from working in an orphanage unknowingly bringing scabies back with me as a reminder. This is the best in stopping you from tearing your skin apart. Brings sweet relief.

  3. worth the extra dollars

    Posted by Tim Suen   Verified Purchase

    If your itching is worst at night and falling asleep is impossible, this is the best solution around.Dr. Numb is a great brand, and this tube is really soothing. Best of luck!

  4. worked great and instantly

    Posted by Jaylee   Verified Purchase

    Have scabies and tried everything in the drug store with little success. I was still scratching like a madwoman. Ordered this one in desperation. Arrived early, worked great and instantly relieved me of the itching. This is definitely the cream to have for scabies itch.

  5. takes the ITCHING away

    Posted by everything's eventual   Verified Purchase

    This product was promptly shipped following my ordering it. It does a very good job of relieving itching caused by scabies and other dermatitis rashes. I recommend it to other customers. This, however, is NOT a cure for your skin condition. Remember that it only takes the ITCHING away.

  6. Better than most

    Posted by Umeko   Verified Purchase

    Works a lot better than other anti itch cream. In fact, Dr. numb is one of the few topical creams I have found to take care of scabies skin itching rather nicely. I like Dr. Scabies cream as well. This is indeed a nice addition to the kit I have.

  7. just reapply it to get relief

    Posted by Hawk548   Verified Purchase

    This stuff is amazing. I bought a tube of Dr. Numb to help with a small bit of very itchy scabbies rash on my toes. It stopped the itch for about 5 minutes. You have to reapply it to get relief though. 3 times a day works fine for me.Just bought 2 more for my back.

  8. Best I've tried

    Posted by lSN9   Verified Purchase

    My skin is also extremely reactive to scabies bites or insect bites of any kind, sometimes to the point where a bite will be swollen and itchy for several weeks. Must be a funny quirk of mine. Anyhow, this cream is the best I have tried. I was skeptical at first because I was a big fan on benadryl. This works just the same, maybe even better.

  9. helps the itch from scabies

    Posted by Brian k   Verified Purchase

    Works great, relieved the itch. Shipped fast, well protected packaging.

  10. staple in my medicine cabinet

    Posted by Steve   Verified Purchase

    Terrific product.Needed this in a hurry as I had a bad case of scabies (and I did get it on time). It helped with the itch and since I did not scratch, it helped with the healing. Great product. I won't forget this as a staple in my medicine cabinet. Dr. Scabies, too.
