my nephew got diagnosed with scabies and they gave him permethrin and in 2 days it started working,you are suppost to put everything in a bag and let the mites die.......you should not share towels,brush,or clothing what so so ever from the person that has scabies.....scabies come from dirtyness and it can come from nursing homes,jail,and places that are not as clean......pets may carry them but they are not given to human beings.....you are suppost to put the cream on at night time and leave it on for 8to 14 hours and wash it off and keep repating until you dont have no more red spots......i hope i helped.....

You CAN get the mites from your pet. I got it from my dog, whom we believe got it from one of the foxes near the woods. The mites burrow under the skin and are the very same mites which cause mange in dogs. The doctors today are sadly behind the times with treatment for this horrible parasite. Scabies do not come from dirtiness. This is an antiquated belief. I can see by what you wrote that you have never had scabies.

Here's the bottom part of that article.

These locations are also best for diagnostic skin scrapings.

N cati may cause transient lesions on humans, but S scabiei mites can burrow into human skin after direct contact with infected animals, causing severe pruritus. The mites can live on humans for up to 6 days, and cases of mite multiplication on humans have been noted. At least 1 case of generalized S scabiei has been reported on a child. Generally, lesions last no more than 2 weeks beyond breaking contact with the infected animal.

Mites must be eliminated from infected animals via a number of licensed veterinary topical parasiticides.[22,27]

Scabies in humans is normally associated with S scabiei var hominis. While most frequently found in children, the elderly are also at risk due to a number of reasons, including environmental factors of overcrowding in communal living and patient care issues. Mites are frequently found in long-term care facilities (nursing homes) even when cleanliness is maintained.[28] Direct physical contact with an infected person, rather than contact with infested clothing and furniture, is the cause.
Signs, Symptoms, and Pathology

Cheyletiella mite infections in humans are characterized by erythematous macules on the limbs and body. These macules become pustular and excoriated due to the intensity of the pruritus. To maintain the infestation, continuous contact with the infected animal is necessary, otherwise lesions heal within about 3 weeks.[22]

The female mite, burrowing under the skin to lay her eggs, elicits a pruritic, inflammatory, allergic response. Scratching can lead to a secondary dermatitis and infection.[29]
Diagnosis

Diagnostic scabies burrows appear as fine, wavy, and slightly scaly lines up to 1 cm long. A tiny mite may sometimes be seen at the end of the burrow. Diagnosis is confirmed by finding the mite or her eggs or her fecal pellets in scrapings of the burrow.[30]
Treatment

A topical scabicide is usually effective when thoroughly applied to all skin surfaces from the neck down.[31]

That was the old treatment regime. And doctors prescribed 5% Permethrin cream that comes in a tube. That no longer cures. The mites have evolved and are resistant to it. Even using the 45% Permethrin via Freedom 45 at only $7 the most you can hope for it that it knocked the mites back. But even at 45% potency it no longer cures. I use it to help manage the infestation.
Hi Guys,

Unless you have a poor immunity, the Elimite permethrin cream should cure. It may take up to 3 applications at 7 days apart, but, normally, it is curative.

I don't recommend using a 45% dog med to maintain a mite infestation. It is too toxic.

I'm not a doctor and I would seek the advice of a professional medical doctor. I'm just posting what I have learned and what I have read what others have done.

Maybe try stopping the permethrin the sh*t is a pesticide and poison, not something you want to put on your skin at 50% strength! We understand what you are going through and it is the sh*ts like straight up probably the worst thing that will ever happen in my life. It has already altered my life enough I'm a prisoner in my own house. I imagine you are in the same boat, I feel gross and feel like I'll never get cured and I'll never have a gf again or be able to touch my mom or dad or hangout with my buddies. Just don't loose your mind over something like this, break down and cry or scream or throw sh*t all over the house but don't loose your sanity.

I do get it. Keep reading here. Have you read the entire Eprinex thread? How often are you using the 45% permethrin spot on for dogs? I use just rubbing alcohol and hydrogen peroxide on my skin, that's it, either applied together or separately. It helps. some...

I like the Poor Man's Protocol, and I suggest that you read everything you can on this website I am posting.

If what you are saying is TRUE, then you have a chronic disease, and you have to change your thinking, your attitude to this whose disease process.

We long term sufferers get you Cindi. I think of you a lot, fighting this such a long time. There is so much the docs don't care to know isn't there... so much plain misinformation ignorance and judgement. Most of us are fighting with sticks and stones without any help. Yet, we're criticized for using chems to fight the maddening itch, crawling and jumping critters.

Hi Guys,
Yes, these are called zoonotic diseases. Even though alot of literature states that sarcoptic scabiei var canis cannot multiply on humans, the literature is slowly changing. It states this at the bottom of this article.
http://www.medscape.org/viewarticle/563594_5
Sarcotpic Scabiei var canis can be caught from a pet that has not been cared for properly. A pet that has not bathed, etc., so I have to say, yes, it can be caused from uncleanliness and neglect.
can also be caused from being in wrong place at the wrong time. I caught my bird mites/spring-tails/whatever from having the roof blow-vacuumed after a storm. Before that I was the clean queen. now life has turned upside down.

I would say upside down is a nice way of putting things wouldn't you? I would say something more like this has totally fu*ked up our lives and I've only been dealing with it for a few months and only one week of treatment. If we had two chances at life I'm pretty sure I would cash in now and take my second chance. I can only imagine dealing with what Aussie is going through with those damn things living so long! Hang tough everyone! Derm tomorrow will update you all!

Hey there you ignorant and uneducated person, who obviously cannot even post a link - you obviously have no common sense and are just here to bash other people... very rude and nasty. Sarcoptic mange comes from wildlife, specifically in my region, foxes. All it takes is for your pet to walk over the ground where an infected fox was just a few hours prior, and the mange mites can and will adhere to your pet. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH CLEANLINESS!! you can bathe all you want, and the mites remain.

How about we send you some mange mites just for YOU and YOUR USE can try it out? Put them on you and see if washing gets rid of them! Idiot.

Forgot to mention that we too lived right on the edge of one of the biggest national parks in Australia. We even had massive bush turkeys on the balcony at our front door, literally, and we used to feed them some small pieces of fruit and veg every day.

... and we had lots of foxes from the bush and surrounding parklands too... omg could be anything really at this stage.

Good news- the few bite-sites that are left on me have shrunk more and I can 'feel' the population is dwindling. Another point to note: when I brushed and nit-combed hair today had very few fall out, whereas I usually have dozens. God please let it be... fingers and toes crossed.

YES PERMETHRIN WORKS!!!!!!!! Have scabies twice in the past Permethrin worked both times, make sure you use it twice a week apart. The problem is Permethrin causes skin irritations that mimic scabies so people keep applying cream and they end up in a battle with themselves when they are actually cured. For me I kept getting scratch marks for a month-2 months itched alittle and had bumps that would appear here and there but go away quickly. This was all post scabies sympthoms. Hope this eases the mind of atleast 1 person because you people are nuts on here and scare the crap out of people
Actualy this is NOT the case for most of us if you will read all the messages on the forums. We still have mites after numerous treatments and this is because we have had the condition for so long or because the mites are resistant, not post scabies sensations which you say is your case and I hope that is true.

The reason we know it's not just itching is that we SEE the mites when we treat ourselves with sulfur and they emerge. I still have some of different sizes-- hard to see ones of the hands and plainly visible hear and there from scalp or ankles. Who knows maybe I have had more than one sort of mite --maybe they bough friends to have a party-- but I dont know why that should be.

Maybe it depends on whether they nest in sinus, scalp, scrotum (for men) or other locations where their eggs resist the treatments. PLEASE dont think all of this is hysteria. YOU have had a taste of how bad it can be-- but know that this CAN last some considerable time.

I would say some can be cured more easily but suggest to prolong treatment protocols a bit for sake of safety. Be safe, not scared.

I would have to disagree with some of what you are saying. Unfortunately I am going to put my full faith in my dermatologist that I saw today who has had scabies multiple times before from charity work. He did say permethrin works, resistant strains have not been found or documented in america and that even if that was the case Ivermectin or a Sulfur blend would kill the bugs for sure. They WILL nest in your scalp and he was telling me that he was actually reading about them recently and the medical community is still debating on if Perm kills the eggs or not but either way 3 treatments of perm will be fine as he deals with at LEAST 3 cases a month. I am going to do 3 treatments, second one today and one next week, bug bomb the house and keep up with the washing. He actually laughed when he saw what it was and said that it was a "fun experience" having these little guys. Sorry everyone but most people on here are a bit extreme unless your dealing with bird mites like Aussie is or some other form a mite. I'm going to put my faith in my dermatologist until he proves me wrong. This shit on here will scare you and most everyone will agree that anything more than 5-6 perm treatments is pure crazy and any dr should know to treat with something different IF the perm treatment fails.

Scabies mites cannot be seen with the naked eye. You would have to take the nit comb and examine it under a microscope to determinee if any mites are there. Perhaps you have head lice.

Shelby, Can you move from this area, away from the woods and wildlife? This would definitely improve your situation.

Wash them again hot water borax or arm hammer, and dryer for at least an hour I would do this everyday till you are clear. Make sure you clean and rotate your shoes.
