How many times can I use Benzyl Benzoate before it's a problem?

I ordered Ascabiol lotion a while back (one bottle) and I have found it is one of the only things in the last few weeks that keeps the bugs from moving like crazy on me at night (I believe we have bird mites). I know this lotion is really meant to be used one or two times - I am using a smaller amount like a daily lotion. Am I going to grow three heads? Anyone know how toxic it is? The A&H baths are nice but they still come and find me!

I have used Ascabiol head to toe for the last 3 days straight. It's yucky, but I can tell I get results from it. If I didn't see improvement, I certainly would NOT continue to use it nightly. It burns like crazy where there is something to kill.
I've used this 3 days in a row topically, along with Ivermectin oral tabs for a systemic kill.
Order Ivermectin online from
It takes quite a while (weeks, not months) to recieve your order, and it comes in multiple pkgs, but they have been honest to deal with. I thank God for them!!! Taking multiple doses, spread out over weeks, to make sure I am cured. There are clinical studies out there that show successful results for crusted scabies, using multiple dose treatment over weeks.
Prayer is our only hope for ANY problem in life. Without God, I am hopeless. Praise God!! He lives!!!
No to the mites

i am following the same theory. i took stromectol last night and covered myself in ascabiol. will do this another two nights, then i was thinking maybe every three or four days for a month. i have one more dose of stromectol too.

i too worry about the toxicity, but the bb works for me and i am just so desperate. i can at least say it is okay to use on three consecutive nights, this is what my dr told me to do initially and the bb cleared my rashes entirely for 19 days. thought this was all over then, hah!

best of luck to everyone.

How can I use benzyl benzoate? I have used it twice uptill now mixing it with tea tree oil and benzoyl peroxide and it has triggered a skin allergy on my whole body. I have got these angry red itchy bumps.
But the first application had given me a releif so I went for another application as soon as I felt them growing again..
Can't help myself.. I'm getting desperate and depressed enough.. I want these bird mites out of me but benzoyl benzoate is not suiting me and it is the only thing that affects.. Sigh!!
