WHAT!
Mitewarrier77, you are a pain! Stop judging people! This forum is for people who are suffering from infestation. These people here are looking for ways to cure themselves by trying anything they can to live a normal healthy life again. It's very inconsiderate of you to be criticizing and "ranting" at others and their remedies. What may work for certain people may not work for others! Here's a word of advice mitewarrior77, get the hell of this site and keep your arrogant comments to yourself!

I tried Gold Bond Medicated Powder and it offered temporary relief; I have ordered the sulfur soaps, the sulfur creams and neem oil....I use tea tree oil on my three month old to give her some relief and will take myself and children to doctor tomorrow to follow up

Additional information on curing scabies: I am no professional but here are a few suggestions.(1) Clean up daily; Vacuum, steam and use Lysol with oxy clean on all hard surfaces. Use Arm & Hammer laundry detergent add oxy clean laundry booster. Note the oxy may fade your darks. If you have a steam setting use it.(2) Wash your hair in the sink to avoid mites jumping back on you in the shower. Use Oxg Coconut shampoo and conditioner. Rinse with ice cold water at the last minute.(3) Bath time: Use Dead Sea salt in your bath, a lot of it like two cups of salt per bath. Dip your head and body in the tub for 20 minutes. I also use the exfoliating gloves to scrub them right out of my skin. Once the dig into your skin, it will take the gloves to pull them out.(4) Rub 10 percent clove oil and Hollywood tea tree oil all over from head to toe,(keep rubbing for fifteen minutes) after 15 min spread an oil gel on like Vaseline oil gel, baby oil gel or aloe vera gel.(5) Kill them in your scalp if you need it; find a hair gel for your hair, if it s cold get under a dryer, if it s not cold go outside and air dry. After your hair dries dry spread the Hollywood tea tree and 10 percent clove oil over your hair. THAT IS THE NIGHT ROUTINE... During the day spread virgin coconut oil all over. This will build the calcium levels in your body from the outside. Scabies hate coconut oil and love the sugars and caffeine in your body. I also take coconut oil supplements along with garlic and fish oil. This will build your immune system from the inside out. The more calcium in your system the easier it is to rid yourself of them.(This was my biggest problem; I had depleted calcium levels and very dry skin.) Essential to healing yourself from scabies; sanitize your home, raise your calcium levels, use virgin coconut oil, dead sea salt, Aloe Vera or Vaseline oil gel, ice cold water in your hair and body, boiling water where ever it can be applied (like in the shower or tub before and after use), Oxy clean detergents, Hollywood tea tree oil and clove oil. Good luck.

Hi, I have a few questions........

1) I've read over and over that mites do not jump. I've read they move slowly. Have found a study or something that shows mites jump? If they do indeed jump. I too have wondered if they did jump..........

2) What are exfoliating gloves? What are they made of and where would I get them?.........

3) I had not read that scabies HATE Coco nut oil. Most of what I've read say to use Olive Oil as a carrier oil for the more potent oils that can burn you, like clover oil and I think peppermint oil, neem oil, and a few other can also burn if you use them directly on your skin. I Have read that some people do use coconut oil in place of Olive oil, but I've not read anything that says scabies hate coconut oil. Did you find some research on that or several other posts that say that? I'd like to find that out, as I find the Olive Oil leaves my skin really cold after having it on all night. I'm not sure I can use coconut oil as I have an allergy to coconut. So I'll do a patch test and see if I can use it in place of Olive Oil..........

4) I've not come across anything about depleted calcium levels and scabies. May I ask where did you find this info? I'd really like to read it as I too tend to have low calcium levels and if calcium can help, I'm going to start to take more. BTW what brand of calcium do you use and have you found it to be beneficial?

5) I've read one post that talked about essentially shocking your skin with hot and then very cold water and that would get the scabies to let go (not sure that killed them).Are you talking about the same idea or something different? Your post is only the 2nd time I've seen anything about using ice cold and very hot water. I'd like to know more about that (not looking forward to doing it, but if it works,.well guess I'll grin and bare it and do it as best I can). Can you point me to any post about that or research that found this works?

Thanks for your interesting post. It brings up things I'd like to learn more about.

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?
If you have researched scabies at all you would know that scabies are mites.

Could you be more specific as to how many parts or ounces bleach to how much water and also as to what A & H is?

Also, if you have found a product that kills mites/scabies mites IN or ON apholstered furniture? They seemed to be centered in our recliner, love seat, and couch and seem to begin to bite a few minutes after I sit down. Please respond today or Mon/Tues this week because I want to start to apply scabies human/furniture/clothing/bathi ng/laundry remedies as soon as possible within the next 2-3 weeks. Thanks for your help.

You need to let the mites die out before you use this furniture again. And then place plastic over any couch or recliner you use. You are the one infesting the furniture. You can spray many things. A solution of water and borax. yes, water and bleach. you can use straight rubbing alcohol in a bottle. But, if you wipe down a recliner that has a plastic cover on it, the mites cannot penetrate into the upholstery, so they die on top of it. if you vacuum the couch or chair, it will stir up the mites. good luck.
A&H is arm and hammer powdered laundry detergent. it is used for the laundry. Has an ingredient in it that kills mites. Use hot water in your laundry.
Let your furniture sit for about 5 days before you start to use them again. Let the mites dry out and die. They are so small that they cannot live long without their host (you being their host).

I wouldn't, it will bleach your clothes and ruin them and also your furniture. I've read reviews on amazon for a product that is an enzyme cleaner concentrate (made from fruit acids I think) that some have said they used on themselves (diluted of course) used in their bath water and used on furniture/floors and other surfaces, it's called kleen green- look at the one with the most reviews, then click on see all reviews, then on right side of page in the box where it says "search this product's reviews", type in the word "scabies" and that will show you all the reviews for that product that mention scabies, you can also look at the other enzyme cleaners they sell there and check those product's reviews too.

My husband and I have had confirmation from state health department and our exterminator that the things in our home and on on/in our person are springtails/ collembola. We used bleach and it helped but pool chemicals are easier on your hair and eyes.(I found shock Star at Home Depot.) If you have a pool just get in it everday and try to stay under for a few minutes at a time. FOLLOW DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY if using it in the tub. We use it in the bath and soak all of us.. Then I mop with it.Bathe the dog. and I use it in a spray bottle too carry in my purse. It with amonia is also great for cleaning brushes and spraying everywhere you sit. I use Clorax and ammonia in the washing with borateem. Never wear your clothes shoes or anyting more than once. These are easy to pass to others. Why do they get on some people? God only knows but at least there are a few doctors helping and believing.Eat protein, no sugar, lettuces and tomatoes. butter , cream (no sugar) no processed that has sugar or form s of sugar. Look for the Kings diet, but don't believe everything anyone tells you. try one thing at a time.

I have been on the diet for over a year. It is the best thing to stop the itiching. Scavieskin is excellent too. Now we are working with a doctor from Tennessee. We are using invermectin. The Month of every 5 days take 6 tables has helped but now we are doing a large dose everyday for 28. I will try to come back and help.

Aloha all, I have to update my post saying that I tried neem oil with coconut oil, tea tree oil even and some goldenseal as per someone's advise at the bank and health food store who was familiar with scabies in the past. They made my baby react with an infection that was odd on the bottoms of her feet. so I kept up with the Gold Bond extra strength with zinc oxide because it relieved the itching so that she could play and rest and be relatively happy. Then I tried olive oil and crushed garlic...it seemed to get to some of them but I noticed that she had a wave of new bumps which meant the eggs were hatching so I applied permetherin for about a night and most of a day and washed her up and she seemed better. She has a few bumps but those new ones are pale and small...so I rub lemon on her feet whenever she bathes or before a nap....I soothe her if she fusses and then apply the Gold bond for added ease...she has never looked better since this mess started and I feel that I had to share that. Bleach may be an alternative for the adults, but I found that simply rubbing lemon juice was adequate for my infant since lemon has a similar ability to kill parasites. I thought I'd give the forum food for thought...good bye

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.
With the bleach bath, do u submerge your head as well to treat the scalp? Silly question, but will this ruin my recently coloured hair?
