Well, excuse me for giving you a compliment, FRED, when I said that your knowledge and research are appreciated here on this forum. I meant it at the time--sorry you took it the wrong way. I had no idea that it would open a can of worms delivered by you. Why dop you have to resort to snide remarks and sarcasm to get your point across? Yes, I'm sure a lot of us here HAVE followed your links; and no, I don't need you to tell me to use Google since you believe I'm "very, very wrong." Do you have an open mind at all? Well, why should you, since you're light years ahead of the rest of us here? You might have the brains to be a top research scientist, but when it comes to imparting your ideas to the rest of us, you're no good at it. We're not robots, and we don't like being treated with scorn and disrespect. If you want us to listen to you, get a good PR person and let him speak for you instead.
In the meantime, I'm done with writing on this forum--one less person for you to try to shoot down with your unfounded arrogance and conceit.

I have been itching for the last two months. The kind of itch that you feel like you want to scratch your skin off to feel any kind of relief. I thought it was dermatitis so I tried to get rid of it myself with some over the counter creams but had no luck. I finally decided to make an appointment to see a dermatologist. When he first saw the bumps he called it a rash but he scraped a couple of them and when he put then under his microscope he realized I had scabies. I was mortified and fairly shocked because I had ruled out scabies since my boyfriend didn't have it. He prescribed a cream for my boyfriend and I to both use. One application from the top of the neck to the bottom of the feet. I actually ended up applying the cream four times because I was so frustrated and needed relief. For the next three days I washed all of my bedding and any clothes that I wore immediately after taking them off. I also tried tea tree oil and aveeno body wash. The tea tree oil was great the first day. I didn't itch nearly as much as I had been and it worked for several hours. For some reason the second day it only worked for about two hours though. I have been taking one to two baths each day (plus taking a shower every morning). I use the body wash in the shower and calamine lotion when I get out. I also use the body wash in the bath as a bubble bath and as a body wash. I've found that soaking in the tub for twenty to thirty minutes works best. I also put peroxide in the bath. I read that it would help show the linear or s-shaped line that the mites make when they burrow under the skin but I have only seen bumps, no lines. This is only day four since going to the doctor but I can tell a significant difference in my skin and actually slept through the night last night. I read that the itching can last another four to six weeks but for now what I'm using is helping and I hope that it can help others who are suffering from this terrible bug.

Hi - newbie here. About a week and a half ago I woke up with what looked like three bug bites on my stomach. They didn't go away, only got redder and pimply. They were extremely itchy, and sometimes down right burned. After reading a lot on the web I decided I had scabies. Was convinced I got it from staying at a shady hotel about 4 weeks prior. Two new smaller 'bites' appeared about three days ago.
Been treating with TTO, Selsun B, Nix, and taking Zinc. Eating lots of garlic and eggs.(No insurance here!) Also been cleaning and doing laundry like mad. No new bites.
Here's the rub: Never any track marks or signs of 'movement' under the skin. Some reduction in redness of the actual bumps, more redness of skin in general I'm guessing due to all of the crap I've been putting all over it. Don't have the typical symptoms I've read on here: Have never been kept awake at night by this. Benedryl or cortizone calms the itching. Nothing on hands or feet, arms, etc.- all on trunk. My girlfriend who sleeps next to me every night has not had a single symptom or red bump appear. Animals are fine. No crawling sensations other than psychosomatic ones. Now I'm starting to think it's not scabies at all? Still have the original five red spots, but no new ones in several days.
Is it possible all of my efforts have stopped them in their tracks? Is it possible it's not even scabies? Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
I'm supposed to get on a plane in a few days to go see my family, which includes ailing parents and young nieces and nephews. I'd hate to carry something their way but I really can't afford a doctor's visit. I ordered the 5% cream and it should be here mid week next week. Would love some opinions... much appreciated!
have you considered bedbugs? they usually have a bite with 3 dots, may want to check that out.

Hello I have had scabies for about 3 months now I am onlyy 17 it is about the worst thing I have ever had but my biggest question is why doesn't anyone else have it I have a girlfriend who I sleep with regualy nd I lay on my couch nd the blanket tht sits on the couch I use but no one else in my family have it I'm very confused but the itching is driving me wild the doctor told me it was scabies nd he gave me a cream but it made the itching worse even after I showered if anyone knows a better way to treat this please help me
You not only need to add the creme prescribed by the doc. But you literally need to clean your house like never before. Take everything that can be washed and wash it in HOT water. I mean EVERYTHING. I also bought rid (lice spray) and sprayed all the couches, mattress etc... Put all stuffed animals pillows etc...in garbage bags. It got rid if it & never came back. Hope I helped.

With scabies, it is not necessary to clean everything, only the areas you frequent. If there is a room that no one uses, this does not have to be cleaned. Use Arm and Hammer Laundry Detergent in your laundry, and yes, use hot water and hot drying.
You do not have to wash clothes that have not been worn during this infestation. It is not necessary.

I know a fungus or yeast infection can have the same affect as scabies. I an dealing with this now. So for those of you that have been doing scabies treatments for a long time with no positive results you might want to look into it.

PLEASE HELP!
Has anyone ever been positively diagnosed (ACTUALL mite found in scraping) for over 6 weeks and no one else in the home has any signs or symptom? My daughter was diagnosed with scabies in the beginning of December from symptoms that began at the beginning of November. No one else showed signs but we treated everyone nonetheless. Rashes kept coming and going on her skin and than a week after her follow-up she was diagnosed with dermatitis. It is now January and both her and I are having severe itching and random rashes and bumps that come and go. I myself am itching horribly all over. But neither my husband nor my eldest daughter are having any signs.I dont know what is going on!

The biggest mistake that people make on this forum is that they assume a diagnosis and then go forward with toxic treatments. Regular doctors and dermatologists are pretty useless , people should se an infectious disease specialist because there are quite a few other infections that cause scabies symptoms.
This is much more likely if the other people in the house have no symptoms.
I have to agree w Fred about many infections can mimic scabies.. looking back, for my family, i am pretty sure i passed lyme to my 7yo, new baby and husband.. my 9 yo didn't have any of these crazy symptoms.. but thinking when we got scabies, we got a fungal infection, which caused the lyme and stuff to flare up a lot. we had confirmed scabies, but for almost 2 months think we were trying to kill scabies we no longer had.. for us, using the permethrin then treating 4 days later, and good cleaning killed the scabies.. problem was, the permethrin flared up the fungal symptoms, which has been a complete nightmare! the skin reactions, when dealing w these infections, is only the tip of the iceberg! problem is, lots of drs don't understand these infections..
we are currently taking amox(my husband n 2 little ones) and i am taking doxy.. we still need an antifungal, n maybe other meds, but our f.dr wanted us to see an infectious disease dr, but we decided to see an LLMD instead, someone that deals a lot w what we are specifically dealing with..

I don't think everyone has infections, n don't think everyone has same kind of infections, but i do think those that can't get rid of scabies may want to consider something else possibly being the cause..

What you are describing sounds like bed bugs. Not scabies or anything else. Bed bugs live in the bedding at some motels and can hitch a ride on your shoe. They can live without a host and only dine at night. Scabies die within 48 hours if no new host is found. And they burrow into your skin. Bed bugs just bite.

Check your bed and pillows if there are Brown or Black dots get ready for a fight. Its bed bugs and they usually leave 3 bite marks in one area and if your allergic it can look like scabies. If you have them spray yourself with rubbing alcohol and get a new bed after treating the infected room. We threw away everything and started over after battling for 6 mo.

P.S.  In my opinion, and in this time, mainly, the purpose of the presents of scabies is to teach the Earth's people about the bearing of respect for the limit of their descendants amount, namely; the overpopulation.
Next to the infectious black rat, domestic animals like cats and dogs are the number one spreaders of plague and disease, brought over to humans.
The infectious rat and her infested parasites (fleas, lice, scabies) spread over to (domestic) animals. Domestic animals carrie always parasites. infected or not. On their turn, the (domestic) animals as well as their (infected) parasites can however, jump over to human and infectiously bite.

This general information is non-profit and only based as a response to my personal experiences and personal research, in order to discus and in the look for good research results in relation to the plague, thank you.
Scabies does not transmit from domestic or wild animals to humans. Please get off your soap box, you are embarassing yourself. You are not an expert, obviously, and should not profess to have wisdom.

And it is not 'presents'. Do not pretend to be wise or learned, many see right through it.

Garlic is not an insect killer.

I could point out a heap more that is incorrect with what you said but frankly, you are a waste of any more time.

Your modern life depends on science. I know you think you are above it, all natural therapies types do - but you are not.

You're super ignorant whoever you are because scabies cannot "jump" nor are animals' scabies AT ALL the same type of mite that exist for humans.

I've been having terrible itching for a while. Ended up at the dermatologist who looked at me for two seconds and said I have scabies. I don't have the telltale bumps, I do have bumps but they seem to be more from the scratching rather than where mites might be burrowing.
The thing is, I have a husband and two kids and NO ONE else has any symptoms. I have had symptoms for at least a month and a half (if not longer). I hold the baby all the time and my older one climbs all over me all day. I share a bed with my husband. If I did have it, wouldn't someone else get it?
I did the permetherine and I've been washing my clothes and towels each night. I do another treatment in 5 days. My pediatrician is hesitant to treat the kids (she's not even sure if we can safely treat the baby) unless I'm sure I have it.
Is it common for one person in a household to get it?
My husband had scabies but I didn't get it why

We have had them for a couple - 3 wks maybe...Have used everything... some things worked to slow down the buggers but...never anything to stop it completely. It's an isolated feeling for sure! Plus it takes up all your time...cleaning...bathing...mi xing up stuff... yadda.. what a freakin nightmare. What idea did the dermo have as to what it could be???
My sister in law has it and I've been freaking out because my son takes the bus there every day after school..... Keep everybody CLEA . Very clean. And if ur concerned about transferrance bathe it vinegar and water. Use vinegar straight don't dilute it on any areas ur scratching n should be gone in a few weeks. Seems like forever but its manageable. Good luck.

Holy hell. Definitely ignorant. Scabies are mites. They don't jump.... Good grief. And the only reason animals are such major carriers is because of all of their fur. A mop is just as equally dangerous to be honest. So go read a book.

My sister has scabies for 2 months now and was just diagnosed -i have had no symptoms how is this possible?
One more thing -animals cannot pass on the parasites to us and the same for us to them because it's a different kind of parasite-for those who were saying it was possible.
Either way im confused why i dont have scabies?
