Norweigian scabbies

There are two types of scabbies, the Norweigian ( in name only ) is the worst of the worst... it has scabs that are crusty and therefore the person, or individual is highly contagious... most people only have up to 10 to 14 adult mites living on their body at one time.. still contagious though.. but its the Norweigian Scabbies mites that are the worst to eradicate. There is lots of information on it online... look it up... hope this helps some people... as the Norweigian Scabbies Mites are so highly contagious... you must seek out a professional for advice on how to eradicate it properly.. so you don't become reinfested. The Norweigian Scabbies you can have thousands living in the scabs on your body... best to seek out a doctors advice and get the proper medications needed.

from what i understand pets can carry scabies 3 days to a week.
u can have a ping pong effect where u get cured,pet dog, and get them back.someone once told me,the only advice ive gotten..is that having a dog "complicates things".when i learn more ill post it,gonna try earthlink.com ..many ppl have given up their pets only to continue a very long battle w scabies.
Actually animals can't get scabies they carry a similar mite that causes mange but animals can't carry nor pAss them back and forth, I've found the best way to cure its not easy but almost guaranteed to work first step is to bag all linen in your house except two bed sets per bec and two outfits per person everything else in your house bag try to make sure when bagging to get air tight, secondly you want to vacuum everything all furniture sterilize any surfaces you can with bleach, mainly try to avoid all of your furniture except where your sleeping ie bed, then you treat you and everyone in your household at the same time right before bed, when you wake you want to change all linen and clothes nd wash and dry thoroughly and use all fresh linen and clothes you want to repeat this step for a full week, then your going to reapply medication after 7 days and repeat linen change for another 7 days and that will pretty much insure your rid of them

My son brought home scabies from daycare. No one else got the symptoms except for my husband. His rash first appeared on Saturday, by Sunday it was worse and that's when he went to the clinic and was diagnosed. We all did the perm 5% cream that night. I changed the sheets and towels and put the kids stuffed animals in plastic bags, as suggested by physician. I thought I'd done enough... until I found this forum. I'm read through a bunch of threads and started freaking out, fearful of a reinfestation! So today i've done exactly as the OP has suggested, except the fumigation bomb. I instead have sprinkled flea/mite powder all over the carpets, let it set for several hours and vacuumed up. I also sprayed all the mattress and my
Sofa with 91% Iso alcohol. I've replaced all bed pillows and threw away the throw couch pillows. We will do the second treatment of the perm 5% cream in 2 days, then I will repeat the process all over again, except the carpet powder (that can only be done once a month). I hope this works! Lucky, no one else has gotten the rash so far and my husband is feeling better. I'll come back in a week to update.

Yes, Scabies is a terrible and annoying infestation, but there is so much FUD and just plain wrongness above that it makes me cringe.
Simply put the scabies mites will die after 4 days of no contact with a human. The best way to cure an infestation is to go to your doctor and get a lindane prescription. Both our pediatrician and family doctor recommended this over the standard permethrin that many other people are prescribed. And then, leave your house and go somewhere else to stay for a few days. Apply the lindane (or permethrin if that is all you could get) following the instructions and then wait it out. This may be hard for some people to do, but staying a few days in a hotel beats replacing all of your furniture or covering it all with a bunch of chemicals and possibly missing a spot somewhere.
Really? So all these people are here because they can't figure that out?
That's nice that you're cured, for now.
Apparently some of the traditional methods are not working...

If you find that the regular use of the sulfur soap, as in my previous Post, leaves your skin too dry and itchy, do this. After the five plus minutes of lathered up time has elapsed and you have rinsed off the sulfur soap, lather up again using a moisturizing or mild soap such as LEVER 2000 ALOE & CUCUMBER or DOVE, etc. That will eliminate the problem.
Something else that will help is this. First obtain a small empty spray bottle - the 4 ounce size is ideal. Healthyhabitsweb.com has one for about $3.00. You also may be able to find one at your local Dollar or discount store. Then purchase a bottle of the regular amber colored Listerene. Use a small funnel, if necessary, to fill the 4 oz. spray bottle with Listerene. Before getting into bed each night or day, spray your legs and feet with the Listerene. Be sure to include the bottoms of you feet and to spray between your toes. The Listerene does not kill scabies, but it is an effective repellent, and it will relieve any remaining itching and help to keep mites of any kind, including scabies, bird mites, pillow mites, etc. from infesting you.
The price of the empty 4 oz. spray bottle described in my above post is now $5.95. For those who may have difficulty finding it using the site's SEARCH function, the direct Link is:

If you have scabies and want it removed from you ASAP. Then you have to cure the environment around you as well as other hosts around you prior to your cure. There isnt one solid way of doing this but here are few of the suggestions.
If you are like me then your environment consists of the following
1. House
2. Car
3. Office
To remove scabies from your environment, you need to use something to kill the scabies, and the only product that I have found successful in doing this is Raid Fumigator. I found them at Home Depot for $11.
http://www.killsbugsdead.com/fop_fum.asp
They come three in a box, you use one per room, or car. You add a lil water to the small plastic cup and then drop a metal container filled with 12% permetherin in it(thats why this works best) and then leave the area for three hours or more. Then just go into the room open all the windows and doors to get fresh air. Apply this everywhere in your environment. Your house, car, maybe not your office lol but everywhere else.
Shoes:
Also, grab Lysol disinfecting spray. Spray your shoes with this and it will kill scabies. I cant say that as a fact, but it has helped me. Personally I have caught scabies from my shoes, but after spraying my shoes with Lysol it has helped in scabies reinfestation.
Clothing:
Use borax, I use one cup of borax with hot water. On the site people have recommended using two cups. I am not exactly sure what the best quantity is, but at least one cup of Borax application is required as Borax does kill scabies. Also make sure to wash your bed sheets everyday in borax. ALSO HOT DRYER. Remember scabies also die from dryness!!
Food:
Remove sugars from your food intake. Just pretend you have diabetic for a while.
Bed:
Vinylize everything. Go to kmart, grab a vinyl cover for your pillow, grab a vinyl sheet for your bed, or get a plastic Air Bed and sleep on that. Every day, you must wash your bed sheets(so far I havent found vinyl bed sheets lol, any suggestions?) and clean your bed with rubbing alcohol)
Keep in mind that all of the above mentioned items will only help you remove it from your environment, and not from you. But also note that until its gone from your environment you will be reinfested.
TAKE DRASTIC MEASURES, and SCABIES WILL BE GONE.
I have done the above mentioned procedure to remove them from me. It worked for two weeks straight, until i met my niece, who I believe has scabies gave it back to me.:(
SO now back to permetherin ;(
My dr wont prescribe me ivermectin. lol. but permetherin does work, as long as your environment is free from scabies. And I think an application after couple of days kill the hatched eggs. Since i dont think permetherin kills the eggs, i could be wrong about this.
Also eucalyptus oil with neem works miracles. Wont kill the scabies, but def. takes away the itch to make you think you dont have it (though this is where you have to watch it).
I plan on creating a full whitepaper on scabies lol.
Also use Gold Bond extra strength for lotion after removal of scabies or even when you have it. since it has menthol it makes the scabies run for their lives, it doesnt kill them sadly :(
I need help getting ride if them for as cheap as possible

I was diagnosed with scabies Yesterday, I have used the cream, washed anything I have come into contact with in the last five days. Am still itchy, but was told that the itching and rash could go on for up to two weeks after treatment even if no longer infected. I am pregnant and don't want to go to extreme measures, but my husband works on an oil rig and had to leave the day I was diagnosed, so he has not been treated. On an oil rig, the men all sleep in a room full of bunk beds, and are always in close quarters. PLEASE HELP!!! I do not want to have to go through multiple treatments as I am afraid to harm my unborn baby. Also I need to eradicate it before the baby comes in August
Megan.. If you have not already scabies free. Try this product called Bugs and Mites Off. They have a website just add dot com to find them. Good luck to you but the products really works

Deep heat or danker run does it repell them as menthol flavours are undertractive to mites?

I basically quarantined clothes that I wore before perm/ivermectin treatment in my closet and left them there untouched (I only go into that closet with great precaution wearing disposable gloves).

I have been cycling through 3-4 outfits that I only wear once before throwing into the wash.

For the clothes in my closet that still be need to be cleaned, it is sufficient to put them in the dryer on HOT for 2 cycles? Or should I still wash them beforehand with borax in hot water and then dry twice?

We're going to do all of the above. We thought we had scabies. After much online digging, 3 months later, we know we're infested with collumbola. And we've found they are cryptobiotic. Sadly, chemicals ARE the only way to rid yourself and your environment. Thanks for the info!

Ok everyone it's been almost a year since I've been on this site. I have tried every suggestion named. What worked for me.

5% sulfur soap
You can switch to sulfur8 shampoo if this is too strong. I used this on my face and neck.
African black soap lotion with black walnut complex extract. One bottle to one bottle mixed together.
De la Cruz sulfur 10% sulfur cream for the extreme itch. I put this on my legs and arms the first two weeks.
Ammonia and Lysol on all hard surfaces in my house. I also sprayed this in the shower after I got out.
Vacuum, steams all carpets and I would saturate the carpets with bugs spray.
You should also try the black walnut complex supplements for at least a month. Take to 3 pills every eight hours.

It takes time to get rid of them but keep doing what releases the itch and pain. Your on the right track.

Teri T, How do you intend to kill the cryptobiotic Collumbia? I tried researching and didn't find anything mentioned for chemicals to kill? Unbelievable that such parasites can live even after being decapitated.
Best of luck to you.
