One reason that you may have bad luck with sulfur soap. You are not working it into the skin.

Benzyl Benzoate is sold online from Australia, as I don't think they prescribe that lotion in the States. It's called Benzemul and the price is really low, like $7.00 a bottle. It's works quite well as a scabicide. I highly recommend it to anyone suffering from a resistant strain of scabies. But, of course, you need to use ivermectin, too, if you want a cure.
Also, I'm just trying to get the word out there that there is a new yahoo group called BitesRUs for anyone who might think they have Lyme, Morgellons, or Bird Mites. Good luck.
Hi thank you. I still need to ask my doctor if that is safe. Has benzyl benzoate helped u get cured? I can't use iver, I'm pregnant.

Trust me I work it in my skin. My skin is dry because of it, but coconut oil brings my skin back to life. I use it everyday. I don't know if it has helped but I do feel safer using it. I've used perm, sulfur, and sulfur soap, along with coconut oil because my skin is dry. I look a lot better from a couple weeks ago. Hopefully I'm in post scabies, I will treat again if I see anything spreading. What's hard is there's 4 adults and 2 kids, and 7 and 3 year old. It makes everything complicated. I have been trying my hardest not to stress. Hopefully my prayers will be answered soon. This has really taken a toll on my life

I worked it into my skin, I lathered it up on a washcloth along with a splat of Stoko, which is an exfoliant hand cleaner made of finely crushed walnut shells. There's no way that sulfur wasn't worked into my skin down to the bone!! Ok I exaggerate, but yes it was worked in very well, so that is just nonsense. I think I do have a resistant strain, but I also still think sulfur is a waste of time because I was literally coated in it for most of my days for over a year and the doc still found scabies poop on me in a scraping after all that time.

Many people on this forum were cured by using the combination of Benzemul and ivermectin. I'm not sure if it is safe if you are pregnant, though. I would do my research before ordering this lotion. When this forum was first created, we had a bunch of us who were just learning about the resistant form of scabies, and we found 100% benzyl benzoate and made our own lotion. They sell 100% BB in places that sell chemicals. We mixed about 20% bb with 80% rubbing alcohol and used that on our skin. Along with the ivermectin it cured many people on this forum. We also used it in our laundry, which, was a huge NO NO, as BB is corrosive to washers and dryers. Smelled funny, too. But, like I said, the Benzemul is a great scabicide and I spoke with my dermatologist about it and she said it works. It's nothing new, and has been around for ages.

Get some rubbing alcohol and put it in a small spray bottle, and when you feel any activity, use it on your active spots. Also, get some hydrogen peroxide and put some in a spray bottle. Use this first, and then the rubbing alcohol. It will kill any surface mites roaming around on you.

But, you are pregnant, so I am not sure what is safe for you.

I understand sulfur didn't help you at all. But some people have been cured by it. How do you explain that? My only two options are perm and sulfur, that's it. I wish I could do iver, but I don't want to harm my baby.

Yes, we all know you are pregnant. Use google and DO YOUR RESEARCH AS A PREGNANT LADY. Study everything you can about this disease. Don't get into arguments with people on the net who are trying to HELP YOU.
Take everything you learn, and sit down with a qualified dermatologist and follow their instructions to the tee. Stop playing around on the net and do your research. This entire situation lies in your hands.

I research everything I can. My life is cleaning and research. Everywhere it says sulfur for pregnant females, or permetherin which I considered safe by only some doctors. I've gone to dermotogists and they think I'm cured and gave me steroid cream. I'm still looking for more dermos to get more opinions. All my family is seeing one.

That was quite funny. Atleast I got a laugh out of it, opposed to just being stressed out. I dont know how I'm being stubborn. I still don't have enough, maybe in a couple days I will have enough to see one. Meanwhile I've been seeing dermos that accept my insurance. I don't have that many options but to do what I can while I wait to see a specialist. I'm not stupid I'm doing what I can. Some people don't have all the benefits others do. I see no reason to reply to you anymore.

No one has been cured with sulfur since the 1970's! The scabies mites of 2013 are a resistant strain. Soaps, ointments, baths, witchcraft doesn't cut it today! That's a fact.
This is NOT true. There were a few people on this forum cured by a home made sulphur lotion. Not sulphur soap, but their own sulphur lotion made from sublimed sulphur, which can be bought online and any hand lotion. 20% sublimed sulphur and 80% hand lotion.

Cindilu, angry is as angry does.

Where did you pull the 1970's year from, your butt?

I should apologise for my over use of my Sharon and Cindilu aliases lately. Just trying to confuse everyone. You know how that goes.

You are also probably confused that I am trying to direct everyone to the new lyme/bird mite forum that was created just because I was causing too much trouble on the current one. I am just mad cause they won't let me sign up.

Oh well, I always have this forum where there are people who can't see me for the loser I am.

What in the world is going on here? How is this helping anyone? If you have an opinion that's a good thing, but no need for all this. Come on, can we be respectful.

PWS, if you have insurance and can see dermo's, then is it possible you could switch to an infectious med doc just to see if they could give you other options? Also, excuse me if maybe I didn't read far enough back...were you able to get the diagnosis confirmed somehow by a scraping or biopsy or something?

If I came off harsh with my opinions, I sure didn't mean to. It's just that I had spent a LOT of money on these natural cures and it was wasted money and I'd like to see people use their money wisely and not buy just everything out there out of desperation. I understand the position PWS is in and I just think she should use what works for now and buys you time and if that's sulfur, then great. For people with options, I urge you to move away from the "natural cures" because the earlier you get at this with real meds (ivermectin/permethrin used together, in my opinion), the better the kill. Don't give it time to multiply to the point where it's more difficult to eliminate.

I've tried but they don't accept my insurance. Only a couple of dermos. I called one and they said it would cost 300, but my bf is going to pay it. We've wasted so much money though, so we can't make a appointment until next week, but I'm glad he's going to pay and that I'm going to go. Yea I got a scraping done, and they didn't find anything. Most of my bumps are healed, so he scraped on my stomach were their were a few, but today there almost gone. He said I should be cured, but If I get worse to go back within a week for another scrape test. I have one bump on my back that seems raised but besides that everything is flat, almost gone, with a few scabs and black dots. I would say about 6 scabs. I had about a good 100 bumps or more. My mom got in contact with a doctor from Mexico, one that my grandma knows. He is sending us iver and scabisan(permetherin) for us and the kids. He said meanwhile the medicine gets here to use sulfur. I can't wait until I'm able to see the infectious disease specialist

Hi, hearing everyone's stories are a bit of relief however not completely for my skin. So last year I began itching and noticing bites around my waist, naturally I assumed they were flea bites. So I sprayed professionally even got a new home for my cat as I was pregnant and could not afford my newborn being bit by fleas. All this yet I still had bites as did my daughter and husband, as fleas are are to rid I still assumed it was them causing this distress. After moving from MI to Ohio I was sure no fleas but I continued to have bites so I begin to research via internet. We moved once more into our new house fresh clean remodeled and still bites so I know it must be a parasite. My newborn turned 2 months and her tiny feet were covered in blistered bumps it broke my heart. The doctor took one look and said the dreaded word "scabies" so she prescribed 5% perm cream as it seems affective on my daughters and husband thus far I am still suffering, Right after treatment I noticed several bites on my hands so I began extremely hot showers almost to the point of burning my skin it does help, I have drenched myself in tea tree oil and scrubbed very hard with sulfur soap, washed all linens daily vaccuumed my carpets mattress and floors. everyone else seems good now after 7 days but tonight I had 3 bites inside my belly button!! I noticed 91% rubbing alcohol helps the itch and a thick Vaseline also helps but not a cure. I heard about neem so I am waiting for ups to deliver my oils I ordered neem tea tree and clove. Hoping this works as well as the sulfur method and hot baths. As I read the previous threads I begin to stress as it seems so difficult to rid. The best thread was the person who had a vacation and sun bathed with oils and used hot tubs and swimming in chlorine that does sound great but I can't do that method as it seems a sure cure. So far my family is at success with ridding the curse it's just me left alone to battle out those little tiny bugs that are making me insane!!! I feel like I'm going mad and even feel some depression after a year long battle.

Sulfur is the oldest known treatment of scabies and other skin parasites, Ancient Rome and Greeks as well as other nations used sulfur to rid scabies. But what I haven't heard is what method they used it in and surely back then they used a high % of sulfur. Also in Asia the use neem oil as a natural pesticide in there agriculture and the insects never grow immune to it as it's natural. The problem with man made pesticides such as the creams prescribed by doctors is the bug grows immune to it and has it's already being a highly dangerous pesticide it can not be stronger or else it can be fatal. When I read some side effects I must admit I was a bit afraid, cancer and nerve damage, long term affects were also known. So as I do believe these dangerous creams may be highly affective in some cases but not in all. Like myself I can't seem to be cured by a prescribed cream so it leaving me no choice but to seek a natural method of curing (neem) seems to b my first choice followed by sulfur scrubbing daily. I haven't started my neem oil yet only sulfur bathes
