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.

I have never tired raid for shoes, does it have prem? I used raid blue bombs to fumigate my home it has 12% prem. I usually put them in the freezer for at least 24 hours. When i take off my shoes i spray lysol in them, or I use my steamer inside my shoes if I don't want to freeze them
Make sure you do the same with your clothes wash in very hot water. Good luck!

Imnespol526, yes I am in fact moving to another town closer to the city very soon. I cannot wait to be away from here, and be able to have a dog again. Scabies robbed me of everything that made me happy... and I almost lost my mind trying to get rid of them.
Spray your shoes with the insecticide that has perm - look on the can. and yes, rotate them!! you can also spray the inside with alcohol.
Don't forget your jewely - I sealed mine in a plastic bag for about one month.
You must have fresh sheets every day until you are completely clear! Clean towels everytime you wash yourself! Spray you bathtub & shower with the clorox/water mix

I agree with Shelby's cleaning Scabie, I think I might have reinfected myself from my job badge...
Shelby you are cured? How long did it take and what did you do? How long have you been cured?
Congrats!

So.. I've had scabies since probably Dec. There are currently 5 people in the household, one 4 yr old.

When we were diagnosed there was 6 people here. We all had them but everyone was in denial. My dad took my little 4yr old sister to see what it was and all he said was it was mites. So another month later nothing changes and this time she was diagnosed correctly. So then we all went down to the clinic and got our 5% cream, we all treated ourselves but the hot water limit prevented a couple of us from washing after the 12hrs. We washed after maybe 18-24 hrs. Anyway my dumb step sister went to juvenile hall before her 2nd treatment but did so in there already. We all got our 2nd treatment done but this was the end of Feb. I'm still itchy and everyone else is but my dad and step-mom are in denial again. We have no refills either for the cream. I really need help I'm not sure how to go about this, if i get help its pointless cause they will have them still. Plus my dads car needs to be cleaned but he works nightshift almost every day so i can't reach him for hardly anything. They're good people though just sorta oblivious to it. It's starting to piss me off. And by the way I'm over 18.

One more thing, how would one go about cleaning up the house of this without damaging carpets? And our couches are black leather if that helps. Also the beds and advice or tips for my little sis would be cool.

One final thing. Sometimes i visit my mom, she has a furry dog and he's always scratching, but it's thought to be fleas.. i stay over there for sometimes a week, but my mom claims neitjer her or my two little bros are itchy at all, and i noticed that they are not itchy myself either.. its strange but could the dog at my moms be carrying them? Thanks and sorry for the wall of text.... I'm in need badly here, not allowing myself to fall for a girl when i start college soon because of this damned curse, it sucks.

Annoyed, not only is it very likely that your mom's dog has scabies, but this would also explain why her and her sons do not have it. Scabies like hairy/furry animals. Generally, unless they are allowed to run rampant, or they have no available animal host, they will not infect humans.
I got scabies when my landlord left rat poison out in my attic and I started finding dead rats and mice all around the apartment. I have had them for about 18 months at this point. Although I have been unable to entirely cure myself I have learned a lot of useful tricks in killing them.
I have found that for myself (and my family members who I have since infected) permethrin simply does not work. It will kill some of them though, and can be used in combination with other things to help improve your chances of getting rid of them entirely.
These are some things that DO work:
Your number one best friend in the battle against scabies is Tea Tree Oil. They absolutely hate it. You want to get the highest concentration you can find. When you put it on they go berserk, and bite A LOT more frequently for a short period of time, but this will get and keep them off of you. However this is not a practical option 100% of the time (concentrated Tea Tree Oil is very expensive). You will definitely want to get some Tea Tree Oil to use in your hair and problem areas.
Secondly, use "The Gold Bar" soap. This will get them off of you. As soon as you rinse it off, they will try to get back on, but if you coat yourself in it, then spray out the shower with freezing cold water they will flow right down the drain.(cold water will hurt their coordination and they will not be able to help getting washed away. The only problem with The Gold Bar is it will dry out your skin HORRIBLY. You can do some serious damage to your skin with excessive use.
For your home, you will want a ton of Borax, which is relatively inexpensive. You will want to cover your carpets and furniture with it EVERY DAY (I go through about 10 boxes a week). Let the borax sit for at least 6 hours then vacuum it thoroughly (this will not stain, I have used it on all materials in my condo and had no problem). Immediately take out the vacuum bag and put it outside, as far away from your house and car as possible. DO THIS EVERY DAY! I cannot stress it enough. This WILL keep them out of your house. If you need a jumpstart on clearing out your house, treat it with borax and a thorough vacuuming, then buy the Zodiac Foggers (permethrin bombs) and set them off throughout the house.
While you do this, treat yourself daily. I have yet to find something that will entirely kill the scabies on my body. I have found that a mixture of clove oil, tea tree oil, and coconut oil, with a hint of menthol works well to prevent them from growing overly large, but does not seem to wipe them out entirely.
Keep your diet in mind. Eat foods they hate like garlic and root vegetables and do not eat oils or sugars as much as you can help it (they LOVE oily/sugary food and you are what you eat). If you eat a lot of oily fried foods your skin gets oily which will cause them to eat more and grow larger (that's right, your diet CAN AND WILL effect their size, and in turn the pain caused by their bites).
Keep your linens washed and in plastic bags. Add borax to the wash and dry them for an extended period of time. Borax and heat will kill them, the washer with regular detergent will not. WASH YOUR SHEETS EVERY DAY AND PUT YOUR PILLOWS IN THE DRIER FOR 20-30 MINUTES EVERY NIGHT BEFORE BED!
Last but not least, do not trust your doctor when he tells you they're gone. Just because he tells you you're cured doesn't mean you are entirely out of the woods. Be persistent, do these things EVERY DAY.
Any additional information would be GREATLY appreciated, I need to get rid of these tiny monsters ASAP. I have moved twice and thrown out all of my furniture once. I have spent over $12,000 in this battle against scabies. Please help!

One more thing, I see a lot of people posting here that seem to have been cured. They seem to all post one comment announcing that they are cured and never check the forums again. We are all suffering from this horrible ailment, and we need to work together to cure ourselves. When you get cured, PLEASE share your story with us. We need to hear the success stories more than anything!

Thank you and I will do the same when I am cured (that's right, not if, when).

Last tip: Your immune system will fight these things off as well, if it is healthy. Take a multi-vitamin daily.(Make sure to get vitamins A and C in there).

I hope the tips above can help some of you out there suffering from this. Going through this can be unbearable at times. I spent 9 - 12 months hopelessly trying to get someone to believe it was real and never made any real progress until I - sadly - infected several people with it. I feel absolutely terrible about this. Most of my family is now infected and I was patient zero. This is one of the saddest things I have ever experienced. However, I now have multiple people who believe this is real and who are desperately trying to find a cure for these things (whatever they are). We have made a lot of progress and I hope others out there can benefit from it. Along the way, we have found a few experts on these things - people who have had them for years and years (in one case for decades) and have helped us a lot. I am not cured, but I have been able to make my life livable again. I cannot claim to be able to cure any of you. However, if anyone out there has questions, needs help or advice, or just wants someone to talk to about this, please feel free to reach out to me at theapartmentfromhell@gmail.com (yes, I made that e-mail months ago specifically for forums like these). I check it every week or so and would be happy to help you in any way I can.

Thanks Needpeace, I have had a lot of success with Diatomaceous Earth per your suggestion. Unfortunately, I am still suffering from these things, which at this point I am almost positive are not scabies, rodent mites, nor anything else I have researched (which includes most commonly known parasites). I have learned a few new tricks and would like to share them with whoever is in need of relief:

#1: Garlic is my new best friend. You can get odorless garlic (it still sometimes has a little smell to it but is nowhere near as bad) and can take 20,000 - 30,000 mgs a day. I would definitely start at about 4,000 mgs and build up slowly to the high levels to be safe. THIS WILL NOT KILL THEM, BUT IT WILL GIVE YOU TEMPORARY RELIEF. I try not to use it too much, as I've discovered that most treatments become less and less effective the more you use them. On days when I need to be at my best with no symptoms I take 12,000 mgs in the morning (you can get 2,000 mg pills and take 6) then I take another 12,000 about 8 - 10 hours later. It works wonders.

# 2: A family member (one of the ones who I infected with this) found a SULFUR BASED SOAP that is incredibly effective. The only problem is it smells, although not as bad as you may think considering you're rubbing sulfur on your body. I shower twice a day using normal soap before work and sulfur soap immediately after. It is effective for 8 - 12 hours. Profuse sweating negates the effects, but follow exercise with another shower and you'll be fine.
WARNING: Some people can be allergic to sulfur soap, so I would try it on a small area first to test it. I did it on my foot. Also, one of my family members (another one I've infected) cannot use it because it irritates his skin. He says his skin burns about 30 minutes after using it.(Another reason to first test it out on a small part of your body).

#3: As Needpeace said, Diatomaceous Earth is great! 3 posts before this you will see my initial recommendations. I was sprinkling borax all over my home and using it in my laundry. I still use borax in all of my laundry, but now use diatomaceous earth around the home. It works wonders. The feeling of bugs jumping on my feet/ankles has stopped entirely.
WARNING: Get a face mask for when you spread it. I get surgical face masks (like the ones doctors wear). Diatomaceous Earth is a VERY thin, powder-like substance and can be hard to spread around. I fill a long, fairly thin black sock with it and shake it around all over the house. The powder will come out through the sock in a fog and it is almost impossible not to inhale it without the mask.

#4: This one is expensive, yet incredibly effective. If you can afford it, try it. I have been using it daily for about a month. At first it was fantastic, but it has gotten progressively less effective over time. You can increase dosage of key ingredients to counter this. It is a mixture of the following:

Coconut Oil: This is the base of the mixture. It is kind to skin, and can be applied to your entire body. Use it thoroughly in your hair.

First add:

Tea Tree Oil: Use about 0.5 - 1.0 fluid ounce per cup of coconut oil. You can build up from there to make it stronger (I use about 2.0 oz per cup), but start low or you may experience a burn-like reaction.

START OFF WITH JUST COCONUT OIL AND TEA TREE OIL! If this does not bother your skin then add the next ingredient:

Clove Bud Oil: Start with about 0.1 oz.(I got 0.33 oz bottles and used 1/3) per cup. I have built up to a full 0.33 oz bottle per cup over time and it has not bothered my skin, but it is strong so be careful.

IF THIS DOES NOT BOTHER YOUR SKIN then add the final ingredient:

Neem Oil: The single most effective topical treatment I have found, yet too much can be VERY harmful to your skin. I first used 12 drops in the mixture (1 cup coconut oil) and experienced a burn-like reaction on my face. I went down to six drops and was fine. I have since built up to about 20 drops and it works wonders.

My husband and I realized that we were infected by scabies about a month ago. we started out with sulfur soap and ordered Scabies-killer. Of course we did the whole house, bedding, and clothes cleaning thing and kept unwashed items in tightly closed plastic bags. The Scabies-Killer helped for about 2 days, until the infestation became worse.(We also used neem oil and diatomaceous earth. I would not recommend the Scabies-Killer as anything other than a desperate waste of money.)

After about 2 weeks I found Kleen Green on line and ordered. We started using it on Saturday and got immediate relief. By Monday there were no new bites (this is explained in their instructions). It has been less than a week (today is Wednesday) and all areas are normalizing. There has been mild itching--nothing like the stinging, incredible itch associated with active scabies. My skin feels so fresh and clean too!!

Realizing not everyone is alike, I still would have to recommend this product as a Godsend. It is formulated with concentrated enzymes and has no pesticides or harmful chemicals.(I still shower with sulfur soap in the morning; and in the evening, I shower with Kleen Green.)

Sorry to sound like a commercial, but this stuff worked for me, and I am using it as per their instructions. We will continue use for at least the next 3 weeks.

These products do not cure scabies. They are scams sold on the net being advertised to cure scabies, but they DO NOT. Sulphur Soap, and this so-called Scabies Killer products do not cure scabies. Kleen Green is just an enzyme solution.

The real scabies medications are Elimite permethrin Cream 5% and Stromectol ivermectin tablets. Used together will effect a cure. Don't waste your money on these online scams.

I waited until Day 7 to post again and would like to address a couple of comments made about my earlier post:
--"Kleen Green is just an enzyme solution.
"The real scabies medications are Elimite permethrin Cream 5% and Stromectol ivermectin tablets. Used together will effect a cure. Don't waste your money on these online scams."
I don't mean to be obnoxious. However, I must state that those comments are totally irresponsible and uninformed.
Before posting I had a discussion with my son, a molecular biologist, who explained that enzymes do absorb into the skin. They do not enter the body past the skin. The enzymes, it is believed, cause insects, mites, lice, etc. to molt prematurely.
--"The real scabies medications are Elimite permethrin Cream 5% and Stromectol ivermectin tablets. Used together will effect a cure. Don't waste your money on these online scams"--yes, there are scams, but not every one is a scam. In addition, the poisons mentioned are not always effective as these monster bugs are known to have developed a tolerance. There are those of us who seek, and find, alternative methods. There are alternatives.
Those who do not believe it can be done should not interrupt those doing it!!
That having been said, I would like to post an update on my experience with KLEEN GREEN:
1. NO NEW BITES AFTER DAY 1;
2. It is now Day 7 and NO NEW BITES--For both my husband and me the inflammation continues to calm every day. The red spots have turned pink and some have disappeared altogether. There has been no itching at night. The only minor itching that we are experiencing is from the debris still left under our skin, and that is dissipating FAST!!
Kleen Green is what did it! You will find a myriad number of testimonials on Amazon as well as the Natural Ginesis website.
I am not negating what others have used--I am only stating my continued success with the above product. I am also suggesting that at least some of you might want to give it a try before "poo-pooing" it.
I do hope this helps some of you.
