It sure seems like it. Maybe this is one of the reasons it is so hard to get rid of. Every time you get rid of it for a week or ten days, it keeps coming back no matter how careful you are.

It's certainly a possibility that there are drug/treatment resistant strains of scabies and other mite species out there.

That is highly likely, however I'm also somewhat convinced that Permethrin is nothing more than an insect repellent and is hardly killing anything that is burrowed under the skin.

Read what wikipedia says about Permethrin.

"Permethrin is...an insect repellent...and is poorly absorbed by skin."

Well, my own position, which has not always
been well-received here, is that the focus
needs to be on alkalizing the body and other ways
of bringing the system back into balance--rather than on killing the bugs.

But at least one other poster here who goes by the
username of Nightmares Do Come True, has said
that this was the key to his own healing.

Check this out perhaps:

Nightmares also took a lot of oral ivermectin and used borax and dried clothes on hot hot for 2 hours, etc if I'm not mistaken.

YES!!!!!!!!!!
You seem like a smart guy. How about starting a national group on it to get something done. I'll join!!

ps. Very true about Permethrin. A few people are getting good results spraying it on their carpets. They buy it at the feedstore and mix their own (the sprays in the little cans at drugstores are useless and expensive).

He said the ivermectin didn't do much for him but that
he would recommend it to others.

In his last posts he said he was easing up on the
cleaning, but still drying his clothes for 2 hrs, as you say.

This was his first post to me in the holistic health thread:

"Delphine, I feel that you are totally on the right track with the holistic approach. I believe that I initially had scabies, and that my immune system was so low, that it gave room for collembola (or other microscopic bugs) to attack my body. In order to combat the critters, I have gone with a total health change, especially when it comes to eating and taking supplements. Adding CoQ10, Probiotics, and elemental Magnesium to my supplements was the turning point for me. I also drastically reduced my intake of sugars, carbs, and breads and cheese. The change in diet, along with the supplements, has gotten me back to almost a normal life."

I had the same problem curing scabies, I went through over 40 bottles of permethrin and it did not work! It actually just made my skin worse, you can read my blog to see how I cured scabies naturally.

I was using kwellada-p and even tried using sulfur treatments. I am now cured and itch free.

Jamie you are evil. You are trying to sell stuff that will not help us. You are a creepy creep! You are worse than the mite itself.

Delphine,
Please stop arguing. You are not introducing anything new here. This is not a battle between pro health people and anti health people. Ivermectin is a worm medication. Its a proven fact. I didn't invent the stuff. If someone cures themselves by contemplating their navel, standing on their head, eating a carrot, pouring kerosene on themselves, taking iver, perm, neem leaf, biosilk, cyonara, igr, etc I am overjoyed for them and happy for them. I will not harp and insist on my way or the highway. You have not cured yourself, we don't really know if you have mites but you are bent on swooping in to save everyone else and you have never experienced the suffering people have gone through. You are treating this like a game or a competition. Newbies need immediate help for the shortterm so they can sleep and cope and keep their jobs. I bought many expensive health products that didn't work because of advice I got. I'm not rich. Scabies bankrupts people.
Ivermectin probably did most of the curing of nightmares, and his laundry and cleaning habits. I'm glad he cleaned up his eating habits in the process.
Btw there is controversy about probiotics that is worrisome.

Hmm, under his username he sez he is from Thunder Bay, and on that site he sez he's in my area. So
which is it Jamie?

One thing on that page sounds like it would help,
the exfoliator--but you don't need to buy an expensive product when dry skin brushing, sea salt
etc., will do the job.

I'm not arguing buggie, just stating my pov.

People are welcome to consider it or not, as they
choose. But I've said that previously here, and people
persist in seeing it as disruptive, for some reason. Whatever!

I think I'm going to follow Matthew's example and wave bybye
to the forum for a whiile (or longer).

So, bybye, and best wishes for your total healing, all!

There is a crisis alright, it's a total break down of the human body by pesticides. Scabies in reality is pretty easy to get rid of, but what most have is something way beyond the scabies realm, and if your not careful you can end up poising the heck out of yourself for no reason.

There is a connection between GMO foods, Chem trails, bacteria and this bug epidemic. Please read this:

http://morgellonspgpr.wordpress.com/2009/03/1...

Quote "Pseudomonas Putida is a common soil bacterium, Collembola have lived for eons and Putida is like ringing the dinner bell for them. The only difference between Morgellons now and then is our wide spread use in agriculture of the main players as listed above. Morgellons is now world wide. And if what I have stated above is true its being used in our food supply, being sprayed aerially, and being used readily. It is quite possibly that during the 1600ís persons became infected with Putida, this requires no extraordinary act."

I do believe there is an epidemic, but the key is ones own imune system. Back 1978 I had Heppatitis and my imune system went haywire i also get uper respiratory problems so I have to be carefull three yrs ago I started working in a Veterans Hospital in Dallas and two years ago the buggs started in Sept I have not had no luck with them the Quac skin doctor did not even know what I had till I told him to treat me for scabies it got rid of them but my stepdaughter did not bathe nor clen herself nor her kids so the buggs continued on. Two weeks ago she moved out and I will have to clean my wife god bless her sowl she does not believe in scabies i tell her we have to cover our mattress but she will not hear it i will do it without telling her she went on vacation she says it is her dry skin because of the winter. I also use sulf-8 and apply the sulfur and vicks also anything that has the mint smell the bugs become imune so I change application every 4-10 days. I will try some of the home remedies hope for the best. tried the Permethrin and that stupid steroid wish made it worse thwy burrou farther into my layers of skin, arm and hammer also works a little wash clothes too dry too on high. will see what works.

I could not get rid of my mites until I covered my mattress with plastic. Then I got over them right away. Ivermectin horse paste worked for me.
