How did you cure scabies? I'm looking for a cure. My family and I are having a really tough time getting rid of these bugs!! Right now we are "quarantineing"... Basically us older teens are banned from the kitchen and living room. We aren't having any skin to skin contact with anyone, I can't hold or play with my baby brother until we are done with scabies. Today when I came in from outside I said "Hi baby!" To him and he ran over to me and giggled and reached up to me... But my mom had to take him away :/ he is only a year old!! I feel so neglectful :'( I just wanna kill these stupid bugs so I can spend time with my siblings! I miss not being able to spend time w/them. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. How did you cure scabies!? I need a cure I'm so desparate !!! We've had them for six months they are really tough- on our heads- we have tried so many things and have gone overthe top on cleaning. So please if you know of something that TRULY works please let me know!!! Right now we are taking borax baths...

Well, it started out with mites. Then the essential oils and peeled fresh oranges attracted gnats. Next thing I knew, I had felt things under the skin too big to be mites. Think they were parasitic worms. Only on in the scalp.

Nothing for mites would work. Not Permethrin or Ivermectin. The Ivermectin over 6 months @ once a week dosage rid the crawling mites on face and hands but not the parasites. Used the horse paste bought at took twice or thrice recommended dosage.

half of a half a tea spoon of pool chlorine mixed with hair conditioner began to reduce the parasites over about a 2 month period. I used clove oil mixed with castor oil. That burned and made my scalp peel but slowly reduced crawling and biting.

I would keep finding microscopic red specs caught on lint roller but after the 6 months of iver, no more.

During this whole time, I took borax and arm & hammer detergent baths every night taking a ten min pause out to scrub down in sulfur soap. After ten min, back in the tub.

Soaked my cloths overnight and bed cloths in borax, and 5 cap fulls of bleach. Colors faded barely noticeable overnight.

Windexed or Bleached everything. New sheets every night after a bleach-n-water spray on the mattress covered in plastic. Let it sit for a few hours then wipe off the rest.

Arm n Hammer super washing soda in shoes and sox. That stuff is also good to soak in with added peroxide and epsom salt. After a half hur soakm draqin tub and scrub down in sulfur soap. stand for ten min b4 washing off.

Bathing/washing like this twice a day gets you faster to where u want to be. Coconut oil to moisten skin but if one is severly dried out bby oil last longer on the skin

Not yet cured but very very close.

you should know, I have some sort of mite that does not bite most of the time and does not burrow under the skin, effecting only hair on scalp. Mites are mites though.
