Joe,
thanks so much! I am ordering this now. I also took your suggestion about Eucalyptus since up till now I had only been using Tea Tree Oil and it didn't seem to last as long and I need all the repelant I can get.

I found a little jar of something called U-Knead-It. It is a balm that not only is very strong and lasts, but also helps that horrible dry skin that comes along with scabies. It has Eucalyptus, Chinese Mint Leaf Oil, lemon fruit oil, rosemary, coconut oil, vit e in a beeswax balm. It lasts and lasts for such a small jar.

I have found something new to try and wondering if anyone else has tried this.

Quassia Amara (bitter ash).


BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES AND CLINICAL RESEARCH

Several early clinical studies performed on amargo verified its traditional use as a natural insecticide, documenting it as an effective treatment for head lice infestation in humans. One of these studies reported a 99% effectiveness in 454 patients who had only two topical treatments one week apart. In a 1991 double-blind placebo trial on 148 children with head lice, those treated with an amargo bark extract reported fewer new cases, demonstrating a preventative activity against lice. In addition, an amargo water extract has been reported to work quite well against aphids in the garden, and researchers in India have discovered larvicidal activity against several types of insects.
In Britain, a water extract of the wood is used topically against scabies, fleas, lice, and other skin parasites.

I purchased the U-Knead-It at my local Whole Foods. Thanks for finding a link to buy it online Joe. You beat me to the punch. After using it for about a week, it really helps with the itching -a lot. As for reinfestation prevention, Ill let everyone know as I do.

Ok, I was waiting on a reply from this site about prep and use of this powder before I posted anymore. This place provides everything you need to know about this stuff. Most important for me many links to PubMed that shows documented research that it works. Most of the published research is on lice (both body & hair), but it is used in Europe for scabies.
I wrote to them and asked them about scabies in particular. Here was their response:
If I had scabies, I would use Amargo tea (Quassia amara) and Andiroba oil, both applied topically.  I would use 2 teaspoons of Amargo powder in 1 cup of cool water, allowing it to sit for 24 hours.  I would strain it then pour this mixture in my hair or over my skin and wash it out after 1 hour.  Andiroba oil can be applied directly to the skin as desired.  This oil has traditionally been used for insect bites and stings; as an insect repellant; for psoriasis, dermatitis, heat rash, skin fungi, and other skin problems; for skin parasites; for skin cancer

Does anyone know of a Neem product that doesn't smell horrible? There is lots of published medical results that study the efficacy of neem, just check PubMed, however, I could never get past the smell. Do they all stink or just the brand I got?
I recently bought some 100% Neem Oil from a Sprouts store near me and yes it stinks which blossomed an idea. I had a small pump bottle of fragranced body spray with a little left, maybe an ounce and added 6 drops of Neem Oil, 6 drops of Tea Tree Oil and 12 drops of Jojoba Oil. You can't smell the bad stuff only the nice fragrance. I made a similar bottle for my husband with his own fragrance to try out. I just took a long soaking bath with sulfer soap, also from Sprouts Store and sprayed the stuff on. So far so good. The alcohol in the fragrance stung a little in areas that I had been itching but that only lasted a few moments. I think I like my new Bugger Oil delivery system. I am going to buy a giant bottle of cheap after bath splash, Jean Nate comes to mind and maybe my husband can use that one too it it's not too girly for him. Let me know if you try this and it works for you.

Oh and you have to really shake it good and spray it while the solution is mixed.

I am also thinking about spraying a wash cloth with the fragranced Bugger Oil and putting the cloth in the dryer with my clothes while drying and see if that helps as well.

I would like to share something I was told about. It is a HEMP cream with sulfur and lots of other anti-bacterial, anti-fungal ingredients in it. I wish I would have found about it sooner but just ordered it recently. It says it's not greasy. A big plus for me. If I wear straight oil or vaseline it sticks to my clothes and makes me even itchier. I checked out this site and so far they have the best ingredients for the price I've ever seen plus it's organic and made for people with super scabies and new skin disease:

Hope this helps.

BTW folks I've been researching this topic for a while.

Watch out for all these people coming out of the Hollywood/Palm Beach Florida area. In my experience it is just one, maybe two people posting under various names trying to push a lot of snake oil.

Does anyone have a US link for a place I can get permethrin 5% without a prescription? Also, does permethrin 10% work well on scabies? Is it toxic?

Some people have used the cattle 10% permethrin same thing but stronger. It is a neuro toxin be careful please. Look back in the forum from years ago someone wrote about mixing the permethrin 10% with lotion or a PBO ( I dont know what that is ) to make it 5%. I am not speaking from personal experience I havent tried it myself. I have also searched high and low for an american place to purchase w/no prescription to no avail. Have you been to the Dr. yet? If not it is a good idea to go to get the prescription.

You don't know about permethrin screwie. Try the Happy Jacks Permethrin II. It contains 18% permethrin and a PBO. Can be diluted down to 5% by adding a good lotion. It's cheap and it works. A couple of rounds of this and you will be CURED. It contains the necessary piperonyl butoxide. The PBO inhibits the detoxification of the pesticide by the insect. Some of an insect's metabolic enzymes, known as Cytochrome P450, can detoxify an active ingredient before the desired affect is achieved. Adding piperonyl butoxide reduces the amount of active ingredient required to achieve the affect we want and disrupts the enzyme activity, thus indirectly it sort of makes the insecticide a bit more environmentally friendly by reducing concentrations, something we all want.

I thought I had scabies until out of desperation I used an antifungal ointment and it cured me.(reading up on collembola etc, they eat fungus...)Now I know I had a fungal infection in my scalp and over my body. My symptoms were: Itching to my scalp but worse was the sensation of movement in my hair at night and stinging to my body. The sores on my face, arms and back of neck and shoulders never seemed to heal. The areas burned and itched. The sores on my face went deep (secondary infection?) within 24 hours I felt so much better. I wondered why when it rained the symptoms worsened. See...not trying to sell anything. I hope this helps some of you.

Collembola, or springtails, are not parasites of humans. That idea has been discredited by scientists.

It's a waste of time to suggest to scabies sufferers that they have collembola.

This is a scabies forum.
