Hi I had scabies and pem (lyclear) didnt work, I used it many times, I tried bleach bath with hydrogen peroxide, borx and hydrodgen peroxide, clove oil(which burnt, tea tree(that soothed) and then ivermectin( dosage depends on your weight) first dosage with permithrin 5% lyclear at same time then 7 days afterwards second dosage and lyclear.
beleive it or not but that worked, they were all gone, however my itch continued and I felt my backside crawling and pimply nodules still appeared. It was apparant that I was highly allergic to the many pesticides, as i had sensative skin, I dont really have sensitive skin I just get rashes sometimes, anyway I also burnt my skin due to the toxic treatments, my scalp crawled as well. well i stopped taking the baths and the pesticides, and things are settiling down, I know I dont have scabies anymore, but I thought I did as my symptons of allergic reaction were very similar, and my dermatologist advised it can continue for 1 year, however things are getting better now. My derm told me he takes ivermectin tablets - two dosages and permithrin 5% at same time and he has had scabies 3 times and they go straight away, I also highly recommend that course of action immediately. good luck they are really terrible and I thought nothing would get rid of them but it was the allergic reaction to everything I was doing making me think they were still there and I can absolutely guarantee they are gone. thanks for listening and i hope this helps some people as you can cure them.
Hi, I've treated my entire family with perm 3 times now and my entire house has been bagged, sanatized, vacuumed, and sprayed with a perm spray...I even treated my scalp with lice shampoo which the pharmacist recommended... I too have had a few bumps pop up after this last treatment (6 days ago) and I itch here and there...but not like a skin itch, it's more like a crawling itch. I still feel like there crawling on me, I'm going insane and it's coming inbetween my marriage. My husband thinks I've lost it b/c I'm constantly looking at the hairs on my arms (which I see move sometimes but don't see anything else) and I feel it in my scalp and face still...what should I do?!?! Please please please help me!

Oh, and I forgot to mention, my doc who has also had these devils, said that I should not be feeling the crawling or getting bumps and that means I still have them, hence the 3 times I've infested my babies with this toxic perm cream...I feel so hopeless!:(

Starts to work as soon as your body metabolizes it
It lasts about 48 hours in your body and works during this time, but more towards 4-12 hours. So, don't shower for a full 48 hours after taking ivermectin. Should be taken every 7 days for about a month. 14 days apart is too far, as the eggs hatch out every day and not all the mites are the same age.
And does not kill the immature mites which do not have a fully developed nervous system.
the med paralyzes the bug.
and why did you change your name here and post the same exact post twice?
I have scabies and was treated with the cream but no one said to cut your nails short and apply the cream overnight. I still had them for 3 more treatments but they were in my mouth and face. I have now taken three treatments of the pills. No one said anything about not taking a shower.. No wonder I still have them. Any suggestions since the medication leaves your system after 3 days?

Ivermectin Paste http://www.amazon.com/Ivermectin-Paste-Deworm...
Now, this is the paste I read on the internet that was good to buy. There is also another one that youre not supposed to buy. Supposedly it has a heartworm additive that we dont want putting inside of us. So...yeah, get the one in the above link, and not the one w/the heartwormer.

You need to consult w/someone on this forum about the correct dosage! DO NOT GO BY WHATS ON THE PACKAGE!!!

The other med is for tapeworms.
Ivermectin IS used for heartworms.
When treating heartworms, they use a much lower dosage than what is used for ectoparasites.

Stromectol (Ivermectin), good offer.
I have http://bit.ly/12Q2gva for about 5 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered.
Excellent service, lowest price.

I can't really help, because I'm in the same boat. It's awful...and worse when your husband thinks you are nuts. Do you ever feel sandy things when you reach for an area that feels itchy or crawly? I do. I am going to try to put some packing tape on the bottom of a Rubbermaid and drop some inside to be viewed by a doc' under a microscope to prove the existence of the bug. But that still doesn't solve the problem. I think there is a super scabies strain out there - and we have it. For your face, buy Equine Ivermectin paste that contains an added ingredient for a specific worm. Darn. I want to order more and can't recall the brand. Anyway, when I put it on my skin (not in mouth), I felt sandy things coming out of the skin. But that did not happen everywhere. So, I guessed it was moving the scabies above ground, so-to-speak. Google all of the Equine Ivermectin pastes. This syringe has red and blue writing on it. I will get bac's k to you when I figure it out. Use it on your face often! Also, get an extra sticky lint roller. Roll everywhere you feel crawlers. Plus, you can go to a dermatologist if you have facial bumps. They will treat them like acne and do this extraction process. My son does not have scabies, but just did this for acne. I'm guessing it would help the scabies bumps, too? Do you have long scratch marks or tracks? My back tracks are so long and straight that it's truly frightening!

IM GOIN TO TRY Ivermectin OUT CAUSE I HAD SCABIES 2 YEARS DIDNT EVEN KNW
I've had it for 6 months...but who knows? I could have had it for much longer than that. Perhaps symptoms don't really show badly on some people for months. And then when you go to a doctor, they never think it's scabies. They are totally useless. Iver doesn't seem to be working for me in the Equine paste version. Not sure if the human pills would either. It seems to work for some and not for others. But almost everyone says that two doses should be more like 14. And no doctor would prescribe that. That's why Equine version seems to be used by many. There's also a pour-on cattle version that someone said is better when combined with DMSO (Google DMSO). The DMSO helps the Iver move through the membranes. My daughter was just at a track meet and I noticed this girl on the other team who was scratching her neck, shoulders, and belly like crazy. She had many red bumps on the exposed skin. She'd scratch herself and then pat her team mate on the shoulder. I'm sure she has no idea what she has. I'd bet it's scabies. And she's passing it right along!

Hello I have Ivermectin 8 mg tabs available from a previous prescription. It kills scabies. Two treatments of 2 or 3 tabs will generally do it but dosing is dependent on weight. No serious side effects. Let me know if interested. It works.

Now I am almost out - AGAIN..... cost for a little tube of the cream is $78.00 and that is at Walmart! I have been also taking orally the ivermectin horse wormer every 7-10 days. Boy am I seeing a coming out party....I am miserable. The bugs are coming our through my skin. Guess that's the only way for them to eliminate? Meanwhile, I don't sleep, itch, scratch, and fuss and remove the bugs w/tweezers 24/7. Any encouragement? How long will this shit last?
It's April 2014 now, and you may be cured and not reading. I'm just commenting. I have the bugs coming out through my skin now, also. I thought everyone did. Does that mean I have a huge bug population? Iver does not seem to work for me. I'm the only one. So strange. Very SAD. What can I do?

Ivermectin works in over 95 percent of cases but it must be sufficient doses and followed up. It is proven to be the most effective treatment and unlike perm the mites cannot build up resistance.

Ivermectin stays in your body 18 to 36 hours. It is effective but since it doesn't kill eggs (as NOTHING does)- then you need to repeat it in some say 7 days - one fellow who posted said he did it ever 3 days (? 4 times in a row) because then you would catch them while they have just hatched. So this would be on days 1,3,7 and 10. The CDC says a single dose works fine - sometimes one repetition at 7 days (or 6 months)- They only recommend multiple dose for crusted scabies or very resistant cases. Then there is a recommendation of day 1,2,8,9.15,22, 29. You can buy Stromectol from Canadian pharmacies with no rx - you judge the mg by your weight - and need to look up Stromectol online to find out how much to take. Or you can buy 1.87% Ivermectin Horse Paste and follow the You Tube info on how to measure out the dose for your weight. Some take it after a fatty meal --Merck - it's maker says empty stomach - so you could eat a really fatty meal then wait an hour or two and then take it. Grapefruit juice helps it stay in your system so drink that too. Also effective are Benzyl Benzoate - you buy this on e-bay from a lab and mix it with coconut lotion and/or cocount oil - 25% benzyl.(3 tablespoons lotion to 1 tablespoon benzyl)-- and or buy clove bud oil and mix this with either coconut oil or grapeseed oil -- 10-20% clove bud oil. It smells nice and kills the living mites.
