You have assumed about a half dozen aliases in the last week and during your time on the forum you have done that many times in the past. You are one of the most self serving ignorant mental cases to ever show up at the scabies forum. You've found your little circle of buddies here too, the dumbest most belligerent ones. Your consistently unsubstantiated and dangerous claims about your completely stupid "remedies" hurt people but you don't really care as long as you get the attention you need.

Also you have the sense of humor of a dumb little kid.

This is interesting Fairy. Not many people speak about using DEET to repel and kill mites on lower legs. I used to use it when I first got this, especially in the car!!
DEET is very toxic and is readily absorbed through the skin and has cumulative toxicity in humans it is also carcinogenic. It's not surprising that "Fairy eats boogers" consistently demonstrates diminished mental capacity with all the toxic chemicals that are coating her weary tiny little brain.

I hope Fairy uses a lot of DEET, she should drink the sh** and use a couple tubes of moxidectin as a chaser.

Neurotoxicity is why evil fairy is so incredibly stupid and high strung.

I've been dealin with scabies for 10 months now..
|I've used neem oil and it worked, then got reinfested. I've used about 12 tubes of permethrin. I learned a few things like washing all vacuum parts in hot water after use, mind you throw out the bag. Those front load washers are useless, I boil water and let the clothes soak in borax and vinegar for 40 mins then wash them. Had vinyl cover for months now. I wear gloves as soon as I get home and this drives my husband crazy. I now realize it's my environment even tho I bleach, vacuum and steam the house. So last nite I read on the web about arm and hammer laundry soap... didn't have any other than baking soda. I sprinkled it on my bed and put my clean sheets on. Not one bite during the nite. Today sprayed everything in house including ceiling with 4 Tbsp. in a spray bottle even had an itch on my head and sprayed there too..Guess what..`1/2 hr. later no more itching. Will bath in it also and will keep you informed.
Hi so did this work for you?

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.
What about the eggs? Do they die while you're out of the house? Or are they just on the body? I know the female burrows into the skin to lay eggs, but are any in the environment around you? And if so, what kills them?
Thanks.

I have been fighting scabies for months. I think i reinfected myself with a jacket i dont wear often. anyway. As a last resort took a bleach bath 2 nights ago(2 capfulls of bleach, added a ton of apple cider vinegar and bathed with sulfur soap) THis did leave my skin very dry but i just let it be. I am no longer itching and have no new bites! I also sprayed my mattress and mattress pad, blanket, pillows and sheets with bedbug spray to kill the bugs and eggs, as well as to create a barrier. also sprayed my furniture with it! again, this was last resort. I have followed all the instructions given by doctors over and over again to no avail. I hope the end is near

I have just been diagnosed with scabies and have started the treatment but I don't think it is scabies, after reading all the info.
I have been itchy now for about 5-6 weeks. It started at the back of the right side of my neck and was there for about a month before it went to right shoulder then right down to elbow then down to my wrist. I have it now the same on my left side ( but nowhere near as bad) it is also along the top of my back, but nowhere else.
I thought scabies was supposed to affect underarms, stomach, groin area and leg & feet, but I'm not infected there at all.
Also, my husband and no one else is infected.
The itch is unbearable at night and bad through the day. Apart from the rash, on the top of my arm, my skin is quite raised.
I'd like to know if anyone else has the same symptoms as me.
Good luck everyone out there, I wouldn't wish this on anyone!

Sometimes scabies effects the typical places but that is not always the case. It depends where you made contact with them and how soon your skin reacts. Left untreated they move to thicker skin and safe places where skin flexes least.

I am not sure if you have s cabies but the migrating rash that itches more at night sounds like scabies. Seek medical attention asap.

The sooner you find out and treat, the sooner you will get over this. Don't panic. Just do your best. Read this four. And don't assume you will be a long term suffer as this is not common.

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 :(
permethrin kills scabies in all stages.

Tea tree oil is effective against bacteria, viruses[citation needed], fungal infections such as athlete's foot,[12] mites such as scabies, and lice

neem oil is an larvaside, parasiticide, pediculocide and insecticide, which makes is particularly effective in killing scabies, as scabies are related to lice, and they are a parasite.

* neem oil should never be used by pregnant women, as it's a form of birth control. It actually changes the uterus itself, making pregnancy impossible.

Borax is specifically toxic to anthropods. Scabies are anthropods. It also has low toxicity to humans. what I do, before bed is I coat the carpet and furniture with borax(as you would with a carpet refresher) and vacuum it up in the morning before my children wake up.

the first time you are infected with scabies, you are itchy for several weeks before you see anything. then you might get things that just look like a rash, or pimples. There are different types of scabies, and some are more severe than others. The rash changes,and migrates,as the life cycles of the scabies do.

you might see things that look like blackheads, which is actually poop.

you might see something that looks like hives. this is an allergic reaction to the mites moving around your skin after they've hatched.

you might see things that are pustules(that are extremely itchy)

you might see large red marks that look like mosquito bites.
burrows are rarer to see,the more severe your case is, the more burrows you will have(usually on the hand and feet, but they can be all over your body, including your scalp. each burrow has 1 female laying eggs. females live 1-2 months,and produce 2-3 eggs a day until they die.

you can get scabies anywhere on your body, including your face. everyone reacts differently.

You forgot to mention that you may also be infected with bartonella or babesia or mycoplasma that the mites also carry. These infections are worse than scabies and can actually give similar skin symptoms so you think your still infected when the mites have long since been killed.

yo peeps, scabies cant live off the human body for more than 72 hours. so environmentally its simple. read my lips: get the hell out of your house, apt, cribbage, wherever u reside and go stay in a hotel er buy a blow up mattress and sleep elsewhere for three nights.. the hard part is coming back and NOT reinfecting yur environment so do the treatment u see fit in yur hotel for example then come back..they'll all be DEAD! but still living on you perhaps so when back in yur fresh home environment ALWAYS covered with the skin solution so they cant rub off on stuff and where pants long sleeves etc, its tricky not reinfecting yur environment but BE CAREFUL or else you mite have to leave again for 72 hours. the hard part is not knowing if u reinfected yur environment so be covered and ULTIMATELY leave for a week or two until u can fully exterminate them from yur body.The tricky part is in bed and the shhets and covers, when u wake up have thick sox waiting next to youor slipper shoes esque and quickly fold yur sheets/blankets I n a manner that keeps them inside on yur sheets NOT ON THE MATTRESS. Buy three sets of sheets /blankets and label the dates so you can reuse the first set after 72 hours.Still u mite wanna wash em AFTER 72 hours for that clean piece of mind, peace

I was diagnosed with Scabies 2 weeks ago and it has been pure hell. I cannot imagine going through this muchonger as I am a single mother of 2 children, 8 and 4. My 8 year old is not affected by it but my 4 year old is. I have done 2 permethrin treatments. Finally found the solution. I went to Trader Joes today and bought coconut oil and tea tree oil. Took 2 scoops out with a spoon of the coconut oil, put it in a ziploc bag and added about 15 drops of tea tree oil. Sealed the bag, mixed it up and started rubbing everywhere. I could almost feel the bugs jump off my skin. I did a permethrin treatment last night. I then went to Home Depot and bought Hot Shot Flea and Bedbugs aerosol spray. They also carry the foggers but my son has severe lung damage from an apartment we lived in with black mold. Trying to avoid the foggers. Came home and Vaccumed the whole house and treated each room as I went along. We shall see how this works. Crossing my fingers I haven't slept in over 2 weeks
