      bought some chinese product before trying this one. How could i be so foolish! and I paid for it triple the price than the Scabies products that are sold on First of all, I was very impressed with this because It was cooling, soothing and refreshing on the scalp like you could just feel those bugs dying. When I tried that chinese dung I had some reaction on my skin and my scalp felt like it was on fire. Definitely Going to buy some more of this stuff
