Any cold water whether with bleach or not will make the mites and their egg shafts come out of your skin. Even a one to three minute soak will bring them out.. Splash around and even more come out. Goop which is half baby oil and half all vegetable shortening scrape off with plastic lid has cured me. Also tearing out the carpet in my car and in my room, and sleeping on plastic lawn chair. I know it will work for you too. Paint the floor white so you can see if you are shedding them still.

You are quite right. If you take an ice container such as you use to keep your food cool when you go to the football, and place that on your skin for a few minutes, that will kill the mites off quite quickly. Another trick is to heat a cup of vinegar to boiling point, then let it cool just enough that it won't burn you, and swab it over your skin with cotton wool. Maybe even do the vinegar thing first and then use the ice containers. Peroxide also works, if you just dab it on your skin, either on face or in ears, or anywhere else. Good trick, 'cold water for scabies'.

I have had scabies a few months now. I've scratched sores on my body after this long being so miserably itchy. I did refrain from any scratching for about the first month or so. Anyway I did my due dilligence on researching what home remedies work since I don't have medical insurance. I ran across borax and hydrogen peroxide. I put 2 cups borax and 1 cup in hottish bath water and soaked for about 15-20 mins. Then got out. For the most part I wasn't as itchy at all. So happy!! The next day I was itchy. Then did research on hot water bath soaks vs cold water. Turns out they come out in cold according to posts I've read. So I'm planning my next bath in the morning. Coolish cold water with the borax and HP. I'll come back and report if I see any in the bath water as others have posted scabies hate cold water. They pack up their eggs and exit your skin immediately according to other posts. Praying!!!

Reporting back. My legs are retaining so much fluid under the skin that now I've developed these hard dark creases around my ankles. I have severe edema from what I can only imagine is scabies burrowing further and further into my skin. I don't have access to a full size tub to soak and test my theory of ice cold baths but when I get the opportunity to it's first on my list of things to do. In the meantime ppl are reporting "mites" biting primarily at night. But that's just not true. They bite primarily when the skin gets hot like when your body is under covers and in bed. So heat sets them off. If you don't think it's true get a container with bleach and ice and water and put it in the fridge. Let it stay cold overnight. When they start biting after you've been in bed a while and under covers then get up and soak a washrag with the cold bleach water. I'd put ice directly on the rag. It'll stick to it. Then I'd scrub whatever itches with the ice rag and in my case it's my right lower leg mostly. So I let the ice sit and get numb and everything. Cuz the bleach soaks for 20-30 mins in cold water haven't helped me much. But the bleach ice soaks do. I wish I had access to something big enough to fit both legs in this. Still itchy. Spreading to my sides and lower stomach. Need ice baths immediately. Still hopeful to get rid of these miserable parasites!!! God help!!

There are cryonics centers near me. Do you think freezing your body could help?
This is our first time with scabies. And I'm scared. Took my boys camping in Trenton Fl at a spring We rented a cabin there.
A few days after returning my oldest broke out in a terrible rash. Everyone started to follow. He has it the worst though. It seems to mainly be on our arms.
As soon as the Dr. Told me what it was ; I immediately started doing research. So glad I did. I've been doing many of the suggestion on here. Next week I'm bombing the house and leaving for 4 days. La Quinta is pet friendly! Hopefully I can resolve this soon.

I am curious if this helped you if you did do it.
Freezing everything seemed to help me. I think I am re infested. I will go back to being very diligent about putting everything in freezing water for hours then washing regular with some borax.

Hi did you try the cold water and did it help?
I have taken cold as I can stand baths and that seemed to help. I have also tried the hydrogen P water and borax mix and leave it on my skin.
Very curious what worked for you.
