I have been comming here for over a year, almost 2, and I have tried turpentine (it does work on your scalp), A&H (only keeps them at bay), tea tree oil (sooths), diatomaceous earth ((good for getting rid of internal parasites internally and the pain of arthritis)) very helpful but not for scabies though. I was at my Dr's office and my new Dr.(a young girl fresh out of med. school) said she knows how to get rid of scabies and it's bleach, I'm thinking "ya right", so I deluted it with 3 parts water and some A&H and now I luv this new Dr.!!!! I mean how quick and cheap could it be, and after spraying myself after a shower they were gone, I hate putting it on my face, and you have to be very careful not to get it in your eyes, they are totally gone! I've waited several weeks before writing this just in case they came back but, they are gone, the only thing that was difficult was figuring out how to get them off my scalp, so I used turpentine oil, left it on my scalp for a few day then washed it out and you can apply it the next couple of shampoos later to be sure, I just can't believe it was so easy, I search bleach scabies online and all the SPAM leads you to believe it won't work or it's too dangerous,(bull s**t)!!!!! They just can't sell their products if you knew about using bleach. I'm soooo sick of all the spam here and you know it's spam if they include a link in the post. Good luck and let me know how it goes for you. Much Love!

thanks xoDiane. I have mites, but not scabies. Have written down your water/bleach formula. I use Dakin's solution--water/bleach/baking soda. Very helpful but much less concentrated than your 1-3 mix.
Powder A&H or liquid?

Jeannie. I disagree. If the bleach baths worked for resistant scabies, then this forum would not exist, basically. Have a good day. Peace Out.

Sig, I luv the baking soda thing, I should have thought of it after reading so much info. here, lol. Mary you are so welcome, let me know how your feeling ;), Jeannie, yes you can bathe in it but I worry about it getting into private places, and you really don't need to bathe in it, just spray a little all over and it's really easy, those little green f-ers hate bleach, it only took me 2 uses to work and their gone. Aaron, I can't figure out why your here, but being pessimistic is okay, why judge something though if you haven't tried it, if you had you wouldn't be so negative. Take care everyone, you'll be healing up in no time ;)

Your cure makes perfect sense Diane. I am so glad you posted. Maybe this young new Doctor has not quite learned to follow "protocol" yet. Good for her. You got to her just in time. Your post has made my day. Way to go!!!

Again, if bleach killed scabies, then we would not have this forum, Jeannie. Peace out.

The bleach baths are for when the permethrin 5% fails;(for those who do not have a very severe form of Norweigan Scabies). For those patients, the Ivermectin,(or Mebendazole), along with ANY topical is used. These individuals have immune issues, and are not the majority. The bleach baths are a very good "topical" in these cases, and will reduce the transmission of infection, and or infestation. These issues will resurface over, and over on this forum when the permethrin fails. It will certainly not be the end of persons needing information. Maybe Aaron could try it and then help the others in my place. That would be the ideal here. Back to the top. I really don't want this job...lol.

My understanding of the purpose for using the bleach baths is to control/eliminate dangerous bacteria that often accompany an infestation.

It is for Bacteria and mites both. Bleach kills everything. Please give this is chance for those that it will work for, (with all due respect).

That is just one option that will work for most. Please don't beat this into the ground,(with all due respect). If anyone does want to opt for the bleach baths; go to the "In between permethrin treatments, help please" thread to get more info. I like xoDiane's cure here too.

Hi, it's Arm & Hammer fragrance free powder detergent, but in my opinion any detergent with a bleaching agent inside will work good. Take Care ;)

I'm adding this info. that I found when doing a search online "scabies bleach". ;)

Of lately, bleach baths are being preferred as a treatment option by scabies sufferers all across the world. Sodium Hypochlorite, or better known as household bleach, is known to be effective in eliminating the underlying mites. As suggested by a few medical professionals, you can add one cup of household bleach per bath. It would be best to combine this bleach with mupirocin or nasal cream. On the other hand, you can also choose to use the public swimming pool for 30 minutes a day. However, since scabies is an infectious skin condition, you must avoid the public pools during active infestation.

The agents contained in household bleach would polymerise within the skin. The mites have some sort of biofilm around them, which protects them against most medications. However, sodium hypochlorite is an ingredient which can actively break the biofilm and penetrate inside the barrier. Most swimming pools contain a chemical called chlorine dioxide, which is a form of an explosive gas. Such a gas is commonly prepared on the location and is not transported from one place to another.

Chlorine dioxide has a great potential to penetrate into the spores and eliminate the protective shield. This would paralyse the mites and hence becomes easier to remove them. Such a gas is also used to decontaminate anthrax infested buildings. Foot bleach baths generally contain higher percentages of this gas, but it is proven to be extremely safe while coming into contact with the human body.
