Currently I have 15 HIV + children suffering from Scabies.
We are giving Homoeopathic Medicines to treat scabies infection in HIV infected children.
Commonly used medicines are Croton Tig, Sulphur, Psorinum 1 M.
I found External application useful in controlling scabies. It is prepared by 80 % of coconut oil mixed with 10 % Calendula Q., 5 % Echinacea & 5 % ethyl alcohol mixed throughly. Advised to patient to apply it after bath once a day.
I observed that with indicated Homoeopathic medicines it will support us to decrease itching in scabies patient & spread of scabies infection & eruption.
I fully aggree with you that Local applications should not used in Homoeopathy. But for me my patient's suffering is more important. As my 15 HIV + children was suffering from severe scabies infection with itching, bleeding & pustular skin infection. So i need an urgent Antiseptic lotion which is Homoeopathic like Calendula & Echinacea Q better than any allopathic antiseptic.
As these are my experiences through various research based experiements.
But finally my patient is satisfied which is important for me.
I accept its my own style. Because my HIV Children are more important for me.
Its very easy to make any comment in discussion than actually involving in research & working for peoples & children affected by AIDS.
So I will follow those things which is beneficial for my HIV patient to relieve their suffering & prolong their life.

As per Dr Boericke Materia Medica
Echinacea Q. : Locally as cleaning & antiseptic wash
Calendula Q: Local antiseptic & cleaning agent
Local Application is used just as Antiseptic purpose not for relieving itch & eruption in scabies. Homoeopathic Antiseptic is used to cure secondary superficial skin infection causing pustule formation & bleeding.
For Scabies treatment we used Homoeopathic medicines based on individual totality given in high potency internally which benefited 87 % patients.
This is one of the answer to WHO showing efficacy of Homoeopathic Treatment without any Allopathic T/t
