I have been treating daily with Head and Shoulders dandruff shampoo and Nix 1% until my permethin 5 arrives from the UK. Now I have a bigger rash and am not sure if it is a reaction to all the above or more bugs. I HATE this and wouldn't wish this on my worse enemy.

I didn't go to the derm. until after I did a ton of treatments with perm. & iver. from my primary doctor. She wouldn't give me anymore though & said I'd have to go to a derm. if I couldn't get rid of them. By the time I went to the derm. he said I had eczema post scabies. I showed him a picture of my thigh before I did any treatments, and he said "now, that's scabies." So he said I was post scabies & gave me the cortisone cream. Still getting a few reddish blotches though not too many since I saw him. Don't know what my status is now. That's what's so frustrating about scabies, you're not sure if you've gotten rid of them or not until you're totally cleared up. Waah!
Durvet Ivermectin didn't iritate my skin at all, in fact it has never looked so good. The odor is light and sweet. The advantix was horrible and made my skin peal, swell, etc. The clove oil created oozing sores, blisters and swelling because I used it undeluted in some spots. But the Durvet left my skin soft and clear.

I guess what I had was a case of Eczema miss diagnosed. Every thing has cleared up with the Prednisone and tropical cortisone cream. Unless you see deep bite wounds and track marks of mite borrowing. I would get the bites tested after a normal treatment with Ivermectin/Permethrin if the problem still persists. Don't over treat your skin.

Second week 90% of my skin damage gone. Think back it was only Eczema. My suggestion is find a good Dermatologist and see him once even if it costs $100 for one visit.

Just wondering if anyone knows -- this pour on ivermectin is 5 mg/mL (just received it in mail). Would you advise mixing it with something like grapeseed oil 50/50 or using it full strength like no scabies did?
Thx!
I just bought the same ivermectin, same name brand and everything.
I was told by a dr. That I had scabies, my heart dropped. I can't imagine this, I'm a clean person with a fair amount of ocd, lol, and I didn't even know what this mite was. So I studied, and studied, read and read... the doc gave me permetherin 5%... the day of getting it, 80.00 bucks btw, I put it on from head to toe, took a hot shower bout 9 hrs later (after bed time).
Next morning felt a lil better but as the day progressed more bumps, itchies, and redness started to appear in other areas. I spot checked it with the per. and kept it on longer than the 9 hrs before.
Next morning took a shower, same thing.... I gave up on the per. Because the only day of relief was basically the first day (night) of putting it on.
So here's what I'll do, I'll update everyone here how my ivermectin daily progression goes. I can't get to these stores that everyone says about these oils, I'm a country boy, if it works for cattle, should work for me.
1) took a hot scolding shower
2) took the ivermectin and poured on cotton swabbs.
3) applied the cotton swabs onto the areas and covered a wide spread of infected area, and rubbed rubbed rubbed.
4) shower at 7 am

After putting on the ivermectin it burned on the agitated areas, but soon cooled off. So I'm not too worried about side affects, will watch n see how it goes.
I will be back tomorrow after my workday and shower, inform you how it looks, and will follow steps 1 thru 4 all over again.

I failed to mention that I'm in the early stages of scabies, have not had the red dots, streams, watermarks, itchies, scratchies, redness, swelling etc but for about a week now. With the way I am, I'm hitting this thing hard and strong and early.
I do not have it on my privates, thank the lord, but it is around my belt line, so I have not put the ivermectin around that area, it is around my inner, lower thighs, so I'm trying my hardest to nip this now.
Hope this experiment works, and my diary can help those who are like me, and our no scabies friend.

Your supposed to do perm once head to toes,Wait a week and do it again. It felt worse after the first day because of the die off. Be careful not to hurt yourself with doing too much. Good luck.

I understand what you said , but the permetherin should have slowed down bumps and streaks. Yes there will be random dots that appear, but there should be no more of tunneling signs. We'll I still had those continuesly.
After this ivermectin first test, I have no more urge to scratch, the bumps and water marks have definitely subsided. I believe it's working because I feel a huge difference. In shower I scrubbed with washcloth n soap in scalding hot water and pat dried and immediately put on the ivermectin. I sleep better, they don't feel active at night anhmore.... something is working here. I do not dilute it, put it on at full strength.
Things are looking up guys.
After my third day of this, I'll stop using ivermectin, and on the fourth, i shall take a cayenne bath. To help burn out all mites and hopefully burn eggs. 5th day I'll do nothing. But on the sixth go back to using ivermectin for the three day 1 thru 4 steps. To kill any eggs that might have hatched.

It's looking good guys, no allergic reactions... I hope this is helping yall.. I want to be the one who diaries this out so u guys can see how exactly it's worked for me. Btw, I apologize for posting my first thread twice.
Love peace n chicken grease

Okay guys n gals, things are looking amazing! No new spots are arising, what spots i had are now drying out actually. My arms are clear and are no longer itchy.
I still have them on my chest and hip areas, but slowly and surely I'm watching them die off. This ivermectin is working like magic.
I did away with the cayenne bath, I'm still putting on the ivermectin daily after showers. The scabies are dieing my friends. There is hope! It does work, i swear it. No one should live with this, get out and buy some!!!
