After reading all your stuff, I'm about to:
1) put a plastic cover over my mattress after spraying the heck out of it with "kill all" and then sleeping in one blanket each night at a time!
2) taking a shower in the morning and a bath at night!
3) BATH: SALT AND PEROXIDE -OR- SALT AND VINEGAR (SOFTENS SKIN AFTER ALL THAT HARSH STUFF)
4) SHOWER: THEN SPRAY MYSELF COMPLETELY WITH SALT AND PEROXIDE OR THE CLEAN GREEN STUFF I FOUND.
5) THEN, TAKE MMS AND DMSO ORALLY SO TO CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT THEY CAN NOT LIVE IN.**AND**
6) APPLY A TOPICAL MMS AND DMSO **AND**
7) WASH ALL MY SHEETS AND BLANKETS WITH CLEAN GREEN
8) WASH CLOTHES DAILY OF A MORNING WITH MY BLANKETS
9) SPRAY MY CARPET, PILLOWS, BED, LAUNDRY HAMPER, EVERYTHING WITH RID, CLEAN GREEN, OR LICE B GONE
10) CLOVE OIL AND YLANG OIL TO SOAK INTO THE SKIN AND HOLD THE CHEMICAL ON TO THE SKIN TO KILL THE FREAKIN STUFF!
11) USE COTTON SWABS WITH CLEAN GREEN TO SWAB NOSTRILS AND INSIDE EARS.
12) BLEACH EVERYTHING THAT IS WHITE REGULARLY!!!!

THIS IS TORTURE! AND EXPENSIVE!

Take hot and cold shower...wash with Dr. Bonner's tea tree oil liquid soap. Take bath with sea salt. Put hydrogine peroxide on itchy spots.
Good Luck!

Got it just recently from trying on something at a freakin' GOODWILL STORE!!! I am SO UPSET!!! It was cammo! I was buying it for something "outdoorsie" I was goint to go do!
I THOUGHT THEY WASHED THEIR ITEMS! Anyways, next time you go to Goodwill, wear a pair of long johns or leggings or something underneath to try stuff on with and take it off immediately after, put it in a plastic bag and wash it when you get home!...and take an immediate shower! I'm looking at 4 months now, trying to get rid of it! First, I used Rid, Rid spray...then I went to the doctor....they prescribed a cream and prednisone and it didn't work AND I had to pay the doctor visit! I took a bleach bath, took an epsom salt bath with applecider vinegar the other day (detox bath more than anything)...washing everything all the time, HECK! Found a spray mixture. I finally just made my bed all the way up and then started sleeping in a blanket each night on the top of all the already made up cover so I could keep it all in one blanket and just change that out each night and not my entire bed! I can spray down the rest of it. I put like 3 pillow cases on each of my pillows so I could just pull off one or two and wash top layers. I am SO FRUSTRATED! Found a few other websites with stuff that "helps", but nothing that has gotten rid of it yet! Someone posted about MMS and DMSO.....I have no idea if it will work, but someone said it helped them. It's making me not only frustrated and exhausted, but hurt and depressed. I'm afraid to hug my son!
I know why people end up living with it for years now.......they probably just give up, thinking there's no hope. People used to not blog this stuff. Can you IMAGINE what it was like before the internet? Wow!
Can't wait until summertime! I'll hang all my blankets outside in the 110 degree heat for like a whole day!
Reading through all this and seeing where people say they've used BORAX, PEROXIDE,...heck, I used BLEACH! THIS IS NUTS! WHY haven't doctors come up with something better than what they prescribe? I feel disgusting!
........ I feel the same way I'm to depressed so down it makes me cry I still want to be rid of it someone please help god please help us

You need to be using sulfur soap daily, from head to toe. This should be applied and scrubbed in after soaking in the tub for a half hour in one cup of borax, one cup of arm & Hammer powder detergent for sensitive skin that is fragrance free and 2 cups of Epsom salt.

After soaking for 30 min, drain the water, rinse the tub and scrub vigorously with the sulfur soap. Leave the soapy suds on for ten min. I would use this time to go wipe down the plastic covered bed.

Then rinse.

After that you can apply sulfur ointment to the worst areas.

Lice B Gone does not cure Scabies!
Lice B Gone can cure scabies, it's made with permethrin which is the cream doctors give people with scabies. The only problem is they are finding that some scabies have become resistant to the drug because they give it to anyone with scabies. It is a proven fact that a mixture of carrier oil (coconut oil is what I use) and 6% clove BUD essential oil (in the study it was at 100% purity, mine is >75) will kill scabies, there was an official, documented study done on it. Clove oil is not dangerous if it is high quality and it's not ingested, looking at the ingredients and potency when you buy it is important. Neem oil is also proven to be good for your skin and hair as well as a natural contraceptive, making scabies multiply slower. The mixture I used was 6% each clove bud oil, neem oil, and sweet orange oil (although lavender is better, I just couldn't justify paying the price the store was selling it at because of it's popularity) and the rest coconut oil. I used it in my hair while showering and left it in until right before I got out, it's a great mixture for your hair. I also made sure it was always applied to my body. After showering I applied natural "safe for use on pets" enzyme cleaner before applying the mixture. I bagged everything fabric except what I would need for 2 weeks and kept the clean clothes separated by outfit in plastic bags. Vacuumed then applied enzyme cleaner to everything else fabric. Duct taped plastic garbage bags (cut to be flat) around my mattress after vacuuming/spraying my mattress and box spring with enzyme cleaner. Take clothes off only in the shower right before showering and put them in plastic bags where they stayed until I did laundry (with disposable gloves on) adding 1/2 cup borax to each load and drying until completely dry. Taking care of scabies is ritualistic, there can be no slacking off or forgetting to do something. If you do everything right it only takes a couple days (although continue for at least 2 weeks just in case) and you never have to worry about it again.

keeping the pores on skin open while applying topical solutions works like magic!
IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT THAT YOU DON'T TOUCH THE AFFECTED AREA WITH YOUR OWN SKIN BECAUSE THAT WILL ONLY SPREAD THE INFESTATION.
and when bathing, always use hot water, not lukewarm.. but hot that is tolerable.. it will surely open up burrows and expose their hideouts but also your inner skin so be cautious, and after bathing, gently pat dry affected area and apply your choice of topical remedies.
and for some reason, in my opinion... STRONG MIX OF SEA SALT + HOT WATER DIP is the best way to get rid of the itch and those pests, mix sea salt and hot water with the ratio of 2 parts water and 1 part of sea salt, dip the affected area (WARNING: IT STINGS LIKE HELL AND VERY PAINFUL ON DAMAGED SKIN UNTIL IT DRIES). dip affected area until you think the solution penetrated the inner skin, take it out of the dip and let it dry, it is important to just let the area dry by itself, in that way the fine dried salt would be left on the bites and dry it out preventing the itch. ADDITIONALLY, YOU CAN INCLUDE SOME HEALING HERBS WITH THE DIP TO HELP THE HEALING PROCESS.

UP TILL NOW, I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THOSE MICROSCOPIC BUGS AREN'T BEEN THOROUGHLY TESTED BY THOSE PEOPLE IN THE MEDICAL FIELD, PERHAPS THOSE BIG PHARMA COMPANIES ARE TO BE BLAMED BECAUSE THEY ONLY WANT PEOPLE TO BUY THEIR EXPENSIVE, AND USELESS PRODUCTS.

BUT I DON'T THINK THE BUGS WILL SURVIVE IN SALTY ENVIRONMENTS.

So... I've been comming here for 2 long years, I've had scabies for 3 long years, I've tried EVERYTHING here "that seens safe" because there is tons of spam here, and I was just about to order Lice B Gone "the one gallon size" because clove bud oil isn't quite working for me sense I had what is called an infestation (they go deep into the skin and are hard to kill off) so, I have been using peroxide in the spray bottle when the clove oil fustrates me cause I can still feel them crawling, the peroxide seems to get rid of surface scabies. Anyway, I kept googleing scabies, like I always do, and I found something called sea salt bath soak, where you use sea salt & peroxide in your bath, I only have a shower so I used a bottle of normal hydrogen peroxide and 1 cup warm water & 1/4 cup regular salt (to disolve the salt) I didn't have sea salt so I just used regular salt and I sprayed everywhere, and I have no more crawling or itching but sense I just did this last night I don't know what the longturm results will be. So I will be giving updates and because I'm sure all of you have these things already in your home, you might want to try it and see for yourself, if it's really this easy I will be truely amazed! Please keep this post updated with your findings. Take Care All ;)
try sulfur soap to get rid of scabies ..you can buy it at Walmart.
