Sulfur seems to be working for me. Use 10% sulfur soap, leave on either 12 or 24 hours a day. go 3 or 4 days and then switch to 5-6-8 percent if needbe. Or simply use 10% but apply lotion to sensitive areas which will "water it down" to 5% or so.
Go to Wiley's scientific articles, put in Sulfur soap and you will find various studies how 80% are cured within 2 weeks.
My experience is the same as Brooks, that bs Ivermectin, Perm and BB did not work for me, despite 24 hours.
I did Iver 22 days in a row along with BB, by that time the mites had grown huge.
I am and my skin is pretty good right now using Neem leaves and Sulfur. Sulfur will burn your neck however, you need to used conditioner or skin lotion when applying to parts of the body which are sensitive.
My doctor told me, hey alot of these medical academic articles are crap. Read Progress post, something about cured or whatnot.
Progress quotes an expert saying that the skin check to see if there are any more mites is bogus. You find what you are looking for, if you are in the employ of the pharmaceuticals, your job is to not find any more mites after 2-3 applications of each drug such as Iver, Perm or BB.
No one truly eradicates it after 1-2 times, there are eggs for chris... sakes!!!! Think about this and the bs in the medical and pharmaceutical professions. Read Welty's posts.
So what happens is your own immune systems takes care of the stragglers.
But if you have that problem already such as Brooks and I, then you got to go with the slow kill, sulfur.
Read Mitey Warrior, Dr. Adam Wilberg, they are all using sulfur soap.
Oh yeah, I have tried lindane quite a bit, it kicks the hell out of your nerves wherever you apply and reapply.
It is quite dangerous too and for me, it affects my moods, its like someone took a hammer to your head, knocked you out and then you wake up and are groggy.
Go with the Sulfur soap, find one that does not smell, apply 24 hours until all mites are gone.
By the way, I am an American in HK so my experience and background is W. medicine.
Just sick of all the money making schemes, my doctor here told me about the money and politics going on. I am using Sulfur with Neem by the way, neem leaves.
Neem leaves seems to give a boost to the immune system.

I brought this home from working in Afghanistan. It was a real pain for my family and I. One thing to be wary of, after you treat and clean your area... they are gone. You can get post scabies itching and bumps that can last up to a year just from your skin being irritated and getting them out. Think it's called post scabetic dermatitis.
We used permethrin then cleaned everyday and on the 7th day we went on a weekend vacation. We got some permethrin house bombs, set them off and went on a weekend vacation with clean, bagged clothes. First thing at the hotel was soaking the car and carseat with lysol, then up to the room shower and apply permethrin, double bag the old clothes... Woke up and enjoyed our weekend, went back to a scabies free house. We did continue to get bumps now and then for a little bit (post scabetic dermatitis).

Six months later I'm back in Afghanistan and re-infested. Scrubbing with a lufa using sulfer soap seems to really help, last time I just used sulfer with no lufa and it didn't seem to do anything. Lufa is key to get them and the eggs unburrowed.

Bottom line, if you've treated appropriately chances are you are cured and your skin is just irritated from constant washing, itching and chemicals/oils...and lets not forget stress. So relax and be cured already!

Sulfur soap does work you have to work it into the skin. But it does work and there is sulfur shampoo for people with long hair. Sorry it did not work for you.

Sulfur soaps, creams and ointments were used back in the early 1900's and they worked to some degree. But since 2005 we have seen the Scabies mites evolve, it's in their genes to learn to become resistant generation after generation. Sulfur is useless in the fight against Scabies and other skin parasites. Again, we all want to believe in a medication or other remedy, but positive thinking doesn't rid your body of them.
I do not think there is a single thing that you say that is true. Scabies do not become resistant to sulfur but from what i have heard they do become resistant to other things.

This online snake oil sales site has a impressive pitch but their essential oils, enzymes and other items do absolutely nothing toward curing Scabies. Many people on the Scabies threads wasted a lot of money on their stuff. The end result was they wasted their money! I was one of them. Don't get ripped off by spammers. If their products did work, I.e., cure Scabies we'd be cured by now and referring everyone to their website. We're not.
I would put your product in the category of snake oil but if it works for you great. Sulfur does work. Its very simple sulfur works. Part of the problem is that when you almost get rid of them you do not notice them anymore and you stop treating. The problem they are not completely gone so in a few months the population grows and there back they were never gone really so you have to keep the treatments up for a while its different for everyone.

I'm upset and totally disappointed that this horrible thing has been brought to my family and dog, my entire house is probably infected, my face itch and I don't have the resources obviously necessary to beat these nasty buggers so far we used perm and was ok then they came back now we're using perm and sulphur soap, so far only a little relief and a lot of aggravation.

I think some of the posters are negative about sulfer soap because there is a company that sells a very expensive version of it specially made for scabies. You dont need the expensive version. Just 10% sulfer soap, you can buy it online. I used a cheap one I bought in bulk. It would take 6 weeks of using the soap twice a day to cure and that would mean your entire family too. So, for us, after the doctors refused any more permethrin and ivermectin, we used the sulfer soap and it finished the job. It kills them on the surface (unlike regular soap where they can hang on then you feel them crawling around after your skin cools off), which is why you have to shower or bath with it twice a day. Of course this may not help everybody, but if you have tried everything, definately try it! Also, if you are waiting for your doctor appointment, you can reduce the population of the buggers by using the soap until the appointment. You can sometimes buy 10% sulfer soap in Mexican grocery stores for pretty cheap. Of course you still have to clean like a crazy person.

Ok had this condition and am now cured. It took 4 months or so to get rid of it, but a good part of the problem was identifying it in the first place. I cured it with Ivermectin Horse paste following the exact dosing on the delivery syringe. I mixed in coffee and couldn't barely taste it. I repeated this proceedure once for 4 weeks. I also did the Permethrin Cream head to foot on one application. Since it took me a few months to get to the bottom of it I did have a tremendous itch and also the thoughts that it was coming back a few times. I used sulpher soap 10% in the shower every morning and continue to do so. If you have had this condition this soap is a simple way to prevent it if used every day, so I do. The post scabies itch is the worst and I had a rash to go along with it which seemed like hives and they may have been due to the remnants that the mites leave behind. I am cured now and I have to admit I read lots of panic and had it myself. This is what cured me. If you think its coming back just do a normal dose of Ivermectin and continue the sulpher soap. It is so nice not to itch right now and I did wonder if it was ever going to subside. Claritin allergy medication is a wonder to stop the itch in the day but I took it at night to sleep. Good luck this is the absolute way to cure it. I am free of it now!

I buy the sulpher soap off ebay cheap it is called Tina on the bar. Works great! I actually think this is the remedy that finished the job. I soap up a lather scalp to toes, everytime. I don't believe the crap that they don't live in your hair. Don't believe any of that BS. Just treat everywhere and don't take chances. Leave the soap on a few minutes and I scratched the skin lightly to work it in. Say goodbye to the mites!

I had a sore muscle on the thigh of my right leg and was using deepheat.
I noticed that no scabie went near there.
Whenever I felt an itch or bite I applied some deepheat waited a few seconds then sprayed it with hairspray and out came the black speck. Sometimes it just left a tiny burrow obviously the scabie with no eggs .Ofcourse the actual scabie cannot be seen with the naked eye but can be felt by running the fingers over the area.
It can be lifted off with an earbud

I'll answer your question about sulfur soap after a first comment. The way to get rid of scabies is:
Use permethrin cream 5% prescribed by your doctor and found at your pharmacy and chemist. The permethrin kills the eggs.

You want to use a 10% sulfur soap for about 3-4 months after treatment with the permethrin, your doctor will tell you.

Use a high quality 10% sulfur soap that is designed for what you are trying to get accomplished- I recommend the brand Scabies Soap.
This is the one used at nursing homes. Sure enough, yep, you can find out more at ScabiesSoap.com It's too easy.

Not all sulfur soaps are the same. The reason why some people say negative things is because they are not informed about how sulfur works and go out and just buy whatever sulfur soap they find - that's sad because they are uninformed. Here's why::::::: Sulfur is insoluble in just water and needs to collude with other molecules properly to be effective. So any idiot can take sulfur powder and put it on your body, or try and mix it with soap, but it all washes down the drain because the sulfur powder never bonds with a compound that can be properly emulsified.

When the chemistry experts design products, they design system solutions. There is a process. The same is true with sulfur soap - it has to be designed for what you want to do.

Definitely DO NOT USE GLYCERIN BASED SULFUR SOAPS. This is somebody who doesn't know what they are doing if they mix glycerin and sulfur and try to claim it is effective.

And always use the highest % of sulfur allowed - 10% and never less for scabies.

So to answer your question, yes - if you select a 10% sulfur soap that is made to wash after scabies treatment with permethrin 5%, then sulfur soap is effective.

Hi. You can buy very fine powdered sulfur and mix this with lotion and/or vaseline. and apply full body 24/7. One poster on here cured himself with this protocol. You can buy sublimed sulfur over the net. try americarx.com . they also sell sulfur soap. Also, look for pomada de azufre which is a pre-mixed sulfur.
Some posters try to get ivermectin, which works really well for the scabies mite. Ivermectin taken orally, along with a good topical, like permethrin or Benzemul has cured many on this forum.
Be very aware of your surroundings and keeping everything mite free and clean.
OUCH! I know you mean well, but this is horrible advice. To properly compound the sulfur, it has to reach a certain temperature (and pressure) with the base. All that sulfur powder just washes down the drain. It never bonds the way you describe and it not effective. Period. No question. If it worked for you, than a placebo would have done the same.

Yes, the ten percent sulfur soap will kill the scabies mites. But you must first kill all the eggs,- the sulfur soap does not kill the eggs.Only permethrin 5% kills the eggs.

Then use sulfur soap to wash for at least 90 days you whole body! See www.ScabiesSoap.com

You have to move. Scabies sticks to your environment. The only true way to get rid of it is to move. When you move throw old furniture and beddings and clothings away. It will be worth it believe me.
I don't believe that to be true, moving and replacing your furniture and clothing is more expensive than controlling Scabies.
Change your habits by keeping your environment cleaner, use organic products, use a steamer for clothes, furniture, bathroom, kitchen, fans, carpet, walls and washy our clothes using organic & Borax w/a good detergent in hot water. Use, don't mix the following Vinegar, alcohol, peroxide correctly. Remember you can get these little things by contact w/other people, places and things. Wash body w/sulfur soap from Mexico. Read up all material you can find.
Don't be lazy but be constant in changing your habits. Don't forget to clean your car and steam all the cloth. Remember they reproduce and live just so long-read as much info as you can. You will win in the long run! BTW there is a product used in hospitals, rest homes and you can buy this online. No one talks about this family or friends and they all want to know how to get rid of this pest once you disclose your problem so we are not alone.

About those eggs.Sometimes you can see them on the hair folicles ofthe legs et. but the are under the skin.
I felt something crawling one day and grabbed an oil based hair spray that happened to be in reach.
I was shocked at the amount of eggs that popped out.
This saved me.I used it daily before showering (Remember it is better to shower because you do not want to sit in a bath of eggs or scabies)
The one I used is made in South Africa so I doubt it would be available in other countries but this is what it contains.Paraffinum liquidum--a mineral oil,isopropyl,mryistate, phenyl,tremithicone,ricinuscom munis,seed oil ,polysorbate 20.I think the oils are important. It suffocates them and brings them to the surface within minutes.
