What's scary, Scabies? Yes, they are scary. It's worse than a horror movie.

A Martin & all,
There is a fast, easy and VERY inexpensive proven cure for Scabies. I am cured in less than 1 month and others on this board are now using it. Full details in this message thread:
http://www.topix.com/forum/health/scabies/T47...
* No toxic chemical soaking in a bathtub
* No danger of giving yourself Dermatitis
* No expensive doctors & poisonous drugs
* No toxic skin creams
* No more suffering for many months or YEARS.
This approach is universal and will reliably KILL all forms of mites, lice, bedbugs. Simply force the mites or lice to crawl through Diatomacious Earth on their way to their favorite meal [you]. Don't chase after THEM because I guarantee they will come to YOU when they get hungry. More details on FOOD GRADE 100% Diatomacious Earth
http://wolfcreekranch1.tripod.com/diatomaceou...
http://www.earthworksde.com/page/page/4101795...
http://www.earthworkshealth.com/organic-pest-...
* DE sprinkled liberally into pie pans located under your bed legs and furniture legs. They cannot crawl from the floor to your bed & back without DEATH.
* DE Mixed into Windex and sprayed on all furniture, car upholstery, your bathroab, your slippers, etc. Windex kills on contact, and DE film left behind kills any mites later.
* DE Mixed into Grapeseed Oil and applied to your entire body. Grapeseed oil nourishes your skin and leaves it silky smooth while a thin film of DE left on your skin KILLS the mites as they crawl out of their burrows or molting pouches.
* Many more DE tips in this thread:

Please stop your suffering with toxic chemicals that are damaging your skin, and wasting money.

"You can get them through a handshake" - this sounds very naive! Yes, that's true, you can - but think about how many other illnesses you can get through a handshake!

You have got that right on! I have read all the threads here and the more I read the more sickening & horrible this story became.
* Some people have suffered for many YEARS !!!!!
* Some have lost their jobs, spouses, lovers
* Some have tossed out furniture, ripped out carpeting
* Some have lost their houses & moved
* Some have gone to wild extremes of laundry, cleaning house,
* IMO, many have given themselves dermatitis using chemical soaks
* Doctors calling them insane or psychotic
* Doctors prescribing the samo, samo, samo toxic treatments
* Some have even become suicidal.
I was not expecting my treatments using DE+Grapeseed Oil to work so fast or be so effective, msg 1&2 here:

This is just the tip of the iceberg. How many people do you think suffer in silence or do not know they have them because they do not itch?

They still go to their jobs, the grocery store, department stores, movies, public toilets,bars, sports events, hotals, cruises,....the list could go on and on.

This is pandemic. Why are Doctors and health officials so quick to say that if their perscriptions don't work for you "It's Mental" ?

Because they do not know what to do about it and they do not want you giving it to them or spreading it around their office.

It seems like the news media would be all over it.
Where are Oprah and Dr. Oz when we need them ???

I had to get that off my chest!

vann. there is nothing u mentioned that i hadnt done. i went as far as taking a bath soak once in lighter fluid but with no luck. well if that didnt kill those little crawlers nothing will. arm and hammer was the only cure i got.you cant even do that often because it hurt my lungs along with poisonous chemical sprays. i have been symptom free since august of 09. i worked at it daily . its something you can not slack off on. getting rid of these is not an easy task. demacious earth can not be beathed in. i used it everywhere, i took it also in pill form for 4 months straight it did absolutely nothing for me. if its helping you good luck with that stuff

When times are rough it's the manner in which we handle them that shows our true worth as a human being.
You can and will get through this and I have no doubt will come out shining.

I find myself in a very delicate situation and I am desperate for an advice.I recently found out that I have scabies for a couple of years. I went to the doctor and I got a missdiagnose of dermatitis and since than I thought that was true. I think I got this from the hospital as I was ill for 2 months.The most recent test shows it is norwegian scabies which is a very contagious form of this disease.That means that almost everyone I got in touch has got it also. The symptons are now very faint but I am passing it to my friends and i feel so embarrased and guilty. I don't know exactly how many people that I know have it but it is an outburst and it feels that I can't control it.
How do I tell my dear ones about this?Im fearing they will judge me and I will loose all my friends and they will never look at me in the same way.
How is possible to eardicate such a highly contagious disease when it envolves hundreds of people?
There is also a chance that i will loose my job because I need to tell my colleagues about this. Does anyone has a solution? I feel trapped in a uncontrolable situation

"The most recent test shows it is norwegian scabies"

Question: who (what institute) has made the diagnosis, how was the diagnosis established, and what part of Germany do you reside?

I am in from the west side of Germany.The doctor made a microscope test.The diagnosis was simply scabies but it is more contagious than the simple scabies and thats why I thought it might be the norwegian form.I didnt mean any kind of discrimination, but there is a form called like this.
Thank you

Hi Riana. You will get over this. You are on the RIGHT forum. Keep reading this forum. Do a search on here for ivermectin, permethrin, benzyl benzoate, sulfur, sulphur. Arm and Hammer laundry Detergent. Bleach baths, etc. I was adding things to the "I am Cured" thread. Read Progresses' Scabies forum thread. There is a lot of good information buried deep in this forum. good luck.

Hello Riana2010,

Could you please be a little more specific please, is it about the region Cologne, or Aachen?

I would like to get grip on a certain epidemic spread that has occurred in central europe, with Belgium as epicenter. The epidemic spread continued in the USA, according existing literature.

The key seems to be a scabies like entity, an entity that actually is not exactly scabies, but one that behaves like scabies.

A clone!

Another question would be; what type treatment have you received for your present condition, and what type success have you scored?

Thank you for responding.
