Considering all the spelling mistakes you make constantly, Fred, you shouldn't criticize someone else's minor typos. Might I remind you that TWICE you wrote about "ricket ships" that you helped send off.
why do you stick up for someone who has been a consistent troll?!

"ricket ships"?, you obviously know more about this than me. Other people have posted using "FRED".

Hello all I'm suffering from the dreadful ITCH too and have been for over a month now I've used permethrin 4 times and still know cure.I have severe ocd and so I've scrubbed every single item more than twice a day.I'm knackered with it all.

I woke up after applying the cream the night before and used the bathroom and washed my hands, I didn't sleep for 8 hours, probably 7 or 7 and a half hours, did I just ruin the treatment on my hands from washing before 8 hours? I did reapply to the washed hands hoping this would continue the treatment, let me know, I don't want to go through this again!

Terrifying. Temporarily wrecks your life. I am moving to new apartment. Good luck trying not to "re-infect" EVERYTHING I OWN. Prayers, please. Thankyou.:-(

A vinyl mattress cover should be fine.

Hi, we are going through it here, too. From what I have read, you cannot get scabies from animals. We went through a treatment of Permethrin 2 weeks ago, and retreated 5 days after initial treatment. Then, we treated with lice shampoo as well. And, 2 days ago, I noticed my kids itching again. Not only has the scabies returned worse than before, but 2 of my kids have lice now! It is Christmas day and I have been picking nits out of hair for 24 hours. I was so carried away with doing that, that I forgot to wash my 6 year old son's medicine off of him! Oh dear Lord...please let him be okay! Praying that we are no longer infected with this horrid disease.
He will be okay. Headache maybe for a while. If he isn't having breathing difficulty by now he should be in the clear.ANY breathing problems see Dr. asap. It is washed off now isn't it?

I feel for anyone going thru this mess.. Went thru the scabies thing 1 yr. Ago. Permethrin did not work....but the ivarmectin did...YEAH....hang in there guys. I am now battling head lice on my 13 yr old, unfortunately we moved and our current MD refuses to prescribe the stuff that works. We used nix ....left it on for 30 min.(Instructions say 10) and....NOTHING. he in now instructing me to leave on for an hour...im gonna pass, and get a new DR. I have gotten more help from sites like this than from the so calked professionals.....thanks guys

There is a mayo treatment you can try. Cover the hair in mayonnaise, completely soaked, wrap the hair in a bag for 3 hrs. Comb the hair then rinse with vinegar and comb again. Nix and many medicated treatments can only be done once a week. The mayo treatment can be done any time and it was the only thing that worked on my daughter. I did use ridX spray for the house and wash everything!! If it cannot be washed in hot water and dried on high heat then it need to be bagged for 3 weeks and kept in a warm area such as a garage. Good luck. I know this is not fun.

When I apply permethrin cream for 12 hours and wash it off. Do I apply for another 12 hours
