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.
