I'm following some of Van from TN's suggestions. I found Sulpher8 shampoo in the African American Beauty products at Walmart. I used a bit of shampoo and a couple of drops of Tea Tree Oil (from Walmart) on my bath puff and lathered my body with the shampoo & oil mixture.I let it stay on for about 1 minute.(Don't get it near your eyes - Ouch it stings-found out the hard way.)My skin felt wonderful all day. And at night I use coconut oil and DE. Everyday I feel less and less itchy. I also use Windex and DE and I steam treat my furniture and Truck as well as wash the floor twice a week. I think I'm winning the battle.

benG1,
yes i ordered the DE from diatomx but i have yet to receive it so I don't recommend you to order from them. I ordered it last week and it hasn't arrived. So, i ordered from another company and this one seems to be more legitimate.
I am thinking of reporting Diatom X company but not sure how to go about doing that. If you have any pointers, pls do share because i don't feel it is right to ripped someone who desperately needs something to cure themselves.
I will update you once i get the DE from another site. If you have an email, i can email you once i got it.
You order something and when it doesn't arrive in less than a week it's a ripoff? Ok then. Does anyone here have any actual legitimate input on Diatom X?

Hi - I appreciate this thread. I would also add that it does help to have a blowdryer. When you feel the crawling beneath your skin, you can blast with hot air for maybe about 30 seconds and I used a meat thermometer to check the temperature was about 110-115 on the surface in case you don't have access to a sauna for dry heat. That seems to completely kill the movement sensation. I got my 50lb bag of food grade diatomaceous earth last summer for fleas, which I think maybe introduced my current issue, since they have been difficult to completely remove yet. I added this thread on some youtube scabies videos to maybe help others with this very difficult problem. I did try Neem oil and tree tea oil, but I had a sensitivity to them - I should have done a test, but I was sort of in a panic. I did take a dose of Ivermectin, but that only seemed to stop the sensations for about 12-15 hours, so it must not kill all of the eggs, so I just thought I'd mention that in case any one else has tried that. The best wishes to all who run into this and try to find help, and hopefully all of this will lend some aid.

Hi - I should also add that I am not completely sure it was the scabies mites since what came out and off my skin appears a bit larger than microscopic, and did infest areas on my face - it may be some bird mites, which I noticed in a few sources, may have alternated to infest bodies like scabies do. I haven't been able to see a dermatologist or anyone with a microscope to get a skin scraping for a definitive conclusion about my infestation. I did see some information that bugs in general may be attracted to high blood sugar and possible Candida environments, so you might want to check those to try to keep them in check. Mosquitoes, fleas and other bugs like possibly thrips or springtails have seemed to really be coming after me in recent years, so I may have an underlying issue that is the real cause.

I'm going to try to get a small microscope at a local toy and science shop if it isn't too expensive, so I can determine the mite species - a parasitology site listed several varieties that could prey on humans.

I did visit an ER a few days ago and I got a 5 day prescription for steroids for the rash from the essential oils, and I read that normally drives blood sugar up by many points, so I am trying to avoid sugars and refined carohydrates for several days.

Hope this may help anyone else again.

12) Grapeseed oil + DE Mix notes
http://facecandy.blogspot.com/2007/07/reap-be...
* absorbed into the skin, leaves skin silky smooth & healthy.
Eliminates dryness caused by DE
* leaves a film of DE over skin surface
* leaves DE into and around Scabies molting burrows.
* Kills all surface mites
-MISC NOTES
Expensive POISONS such as Benzamul, Permethrin, Lindane or
Ivermectin ? FORGET IT! These are poisons + toxic.
-
I quit taking the tub soaks, could not see worthwhile results, and IMO were also toxic and harsh to skin and might cause Dermatitis.
-
I quit on stinkin things like Neem Oil, Cedarcide.
Dramatic results were seen within 2 weeks, keep it up for 2 more months to prevent reinfection.
-
There you have it. Cured of Scabbies with minimal disruptions to my life many thanks to the Miracle of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth & Grapeseed Oil.
-
I apply Grapeseed Oil to my feet every morning. It has cured my cracked, scaling, fugly feet and even cleared up my fugly toenails!
-
Why does this non-toxic approach work?
It forces the critters crawl through a KILLER at every turn. They can't get to or from our bed without crawling through DE. They can't get to you under the sheets without crawling through DE.
If, by some miracle they get to your skin, they are hit again with the film of DE left from the Grapeseed oil. They are hit once again by DE coming out of their nesting burrow, or from their molting pouch.
-
I also suspect that Grapeseed Oil smothers them to death. That is for someone else to research. This might explain why my wife never got Scabies... she covers herself in grapeseed oil after her showers. Makes her dry skin silky smooth and removes many of her wrinkles.
-
Some of us are taking DE internally. We are detailing our results here:
http://www.topix.com/forum/health/scabies/TV6...
-
Do an internet search for the best prices on Grapeseed oil + food grade DE. We bought a 10 lb bag for ourselves & the neighbors. I buy Grapeseed oil by the dozen. We use it for cooking, salads, rubbing oil, and on my feet.
-
My DE cure should work equally well for ALL forms of mites, bedbugs, and even bird lice. Get your lives back to normal and stop using the expensive poisons & harsh chemicals. Stop wasting your valuable time on needless washing, cleaning, trips to the expensive doctors. Get your life back to normal now.
Best of luck to all,
Vann
just a reaction - you must have very dry skin, because this formula left me greasy and gritty. and they bit me all night long. DE in the sheets works, and what I am doing now is the borax/hydrogen peroxide bath, then a light dusting of DE on my legs, arms and back once I have air dried. that seems to be working but no promises yet, but crossing my fingers

Clense your body of toxins. Milk Thistle clenses your liver and allows for whole body healing. Your liver must filter all toxins from your body. Including smoke, invironmental toxins, mercury leaking from those dreadful silver fillings in your teeth, medications as well as household chemicals and there is more. I felt a difference in my body after only 1 day of taking milk thistle. I have had this WHATEVER infliction for 2 1/2 years now. It is not completely gone but I have not have crawling sensations for the past year. I do have to take alpha lipoic acid to reduce the sugar in my blood stream because any sugar/carbs cause a viral looking breakout. This condition morphs drastically over time. What you are experiencing at this time will pass and you will have different symptoms. I continued to work at my job throughout the entire Hellish episode I have been through alot. I am feeling 98% better now. There is hope - so hang on and keep trying to be the best person you can and pray to God. He will guide you.
Love Always

Hello, I am unfortunately dealing with some kind of mite. I read your instructions and I have a question, what type of encasement for your mattress, boxspring, and pillows, did you use? I would really appreciate your response!! I am miserable, and really need all the help I can get! Have you had any more problems since our treatment? Thanks

I should have kept a detailed diary of this affliction.
Vann, how long have you been using the grapeseed oil and DE.
** I started at xmas around Dec 25th.
How long till you started seeing results.
** Results were obvious by Jan 5th. It was my wife who first said I was cured. I didn't believe it because I was still itching. Now there is no more itching, no more fresh welts and all the old welts are gone. Just a few scabs left.
What type of scabies do you have.... nodules?
** See the many photos I provided.
Just curious as the expensive products ive been using for like 2-3 weeks and still getting the nite itch. Makes me feel like its not working.
** You are not washing your clothes as directed by nearly everyone here and myself. You are likely to be re-infecting yourself just from your inadequate laundry practice.
A complete cure requires MUCH MORE than killing scabies.
1) Stop them from crawling from the floor into your bed & furniture, and back down to the floor.
Put zipper bags around pillows, mattress & box spring.
2) Kill them in your shoes, your bathrobe, car seat
3) Kill them in your washing machine
4) Kill them in your bedding
5) Kill them as they come out of their burrows & molting pouches from under your skin.
6) Kill them on everything you touch, such as keyboard.
There is only one product that can do all of this and that is DE and following directions.
If you skip any one of these vital steps, you are likely to be re-infected and in for years of suffering.
Last, you are going to have some amount of itching after the scabies are gone because of the feces, dead mites & exo-skeletons left under your skin.
We need you around here, you give lots of great info. Maybe you should become a scabies specialist.
** Sorry but I have other things to do.
I will be reporting progress if any for the wife & I taking DE internally at this thread:

I really believe the DE is helping. Less crawlies than usual with it mixed with oil in my hair.

I think the bleach and A&H baths worked best for me but did not eliminate them. Maybe the grapeseed oli mixed with DE also helped with the toxic baths.

I stopped with the baths and all the itchiness went away completely after about 4 days. Was left with the crawling mites in the scalp for the last 5 months, occasionally getting into the ears.

About down to 5% away but that last 5 is seems nearly impossible. Nothing seems to kill them on the scalp not even undiluted bleach.

I took another bleach bath last week and the itchiness came back! I’ll stick with the A&H baths as those relive itching.

I think I am having improvement with the clove oil but very slowly and its kind of hard to tell.

I would say DE is definitely a staple to have in this condition!!!

I'm not sure what kind of mite people have that DE works with, but it did nothing for my scabies. I bought a 50lb bag of food grade DE. Put it everywhere, mixed it with grape seed oil for skin. Slept in bed with this stuff, added extra in my clothes. All that happened was I felt grungy and dirty on top of my itching. Grape seed oil and DE is really hard to get out of fabrics too. Be prepared to throw out clothes. When using this stuff, I had a really nasty cough as this abrasive powder can irritate your lungs.

I personally shaved my head as it was just easier and cleaner. DE and olive oil makes a nasty mess in the hair.

No, olive oil does not smell and you could wear this to work, but if it doesn't have any effect, what's the point?

When scabies left there were no more bites in bed, clothes or furniture.
Like I said before... everyone can not do the same things to get rid of them.We all have different bodies.
Bird mites are different. No hard bites. More like a stinging or tiny pin prick. They get in your hair.....100 proof grain alcohol (the kind you can drink) applied neat and left on 20 minutes before washing out will have them gone after 2 or 3 treatments.
What do bird mites look like when they fall off you? or land on the counter? I see these rye seed shapes or little sesame or blacks specs. or skinny hair specs. But I also get stinging and pin pricks. and muscle twitches, and sometimes feel like they are in my stomach. But more than that I am tired looking for an answer to stop the searching. I also fell things flying off me too. Any ideas? All info is welcome

I am so confused I have pulled crystal like fibers from between fingers as well as wife.Also when we took bleach baths or h202 and borax baths we saw a grey like film come to top of water,recently I have seen a whit like substance.In the beginning while using the clove oil we also see black like pepper spots or coffee grain spots Sometimes I will see a purple spot appear on my hand or arm and I will apply the clove oil to it and it either disappears back in skin or comes to top and I wife them off. What do I have scabies or Morgellans or both ????

Please help !!

Dear Vann,
Thanks so much for all your helpful posts.
I have a question regarding your initial article:
6) Laundry: Let DE do all of your hard work.
* your normal laundry routines, keep dirty laundry in your usual laundry bin. Wash Bed sheets weekly.
* Use Arm & Hammer detergent, 20 mule team Borax, and bleach for whites, peroxide for darks in HOT water. Dry HOT.
Where does the DE come in here? Should I add it to the dryer cycle?
Thanks.

Breathing DE is inevitable when using for these things and is very damaging to health. Vann was a DE salesman who was promoting his bottom line.

i just picked diasource diatomaceous earth from feed store food grade organic supposedly better or just as good as permaguard. about to get some
grape seed oil. how to add a 1/4 to grapeseed oil or rather how to measure in powder? took 2 teaspoons of it internally and added some to my
current mixture of clove oil tea tree, neem and witch hazel.(it helps with coping with itch have been using it for one day but not sure if it
will cure the scabies. I am seriously desperate My LIFE has been consumed with this horrible affliction of scabies. My work is suffering, I
cant even see my newborn son for fear of passing it on to him. Also the mother is struggling and i have spent at least close to 1300 in doctors,
creams, stromectal, hotel rooms, cleaning supplies, more doctors. and nearly comtemplated rather being dead. it wasn't until yesterday i got
relief praying to jesus and my pastor and friends I stumbled upon a relief spray of coconut oil tee tree neem and clove oil. I also applied
clove oil direct burned but was manageable. not nearly as bad as borax and hydrogen peroxide and bleach and alcohol and scrubbing my skin i
started getting like reptile skin around the neck and freaked the f... out. that God he blessed me with some new knowledge. I am praying this
de and grapeseed oil will work. just need to know how much powder to put in etc. and how much to put in windex bottle etc.

Vann...what help you have offered people! I can understand why doctors, even if they know about Food Grade DE, would be hesitant about letting their patients know. I prefer to think it has nothing to do with money and more to do with the FDA not approving DE for this particular treatment. That being said, I experienced the same thing with my veterinarian. I proved my point to him and now he's a fan, but...it was a long hard fight and involved my keeping a diary and regular visits to the vet's office to check for fleas, ticks and worms. Word of mouth is the best way to spread the word about DE and then each and every person, like you, who has had such positive results, advocating its use....Thanks again! Here is some more valuable information on Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth: http://www.gardenharvestsupply.com/ProductCar... Scroll down for all the details!
