have you checked out the case report thread? the person from Netherlands has been saying that a cup of bleach in a bathtub kills them. Today I used 5 ounces of bleach in warm/hot water and this protocol seems to work with my mites. I exfoliate a little bit with a wash cloth, my eyebrows, temples, hairline, hands, feet, etc. I have a pool, and i tried what you are doing, and it didn't help me. the pool apparently didn't have enough chlorine in it to make much of a difference. if you are trying to drown them, you should keep moving; otherwise, they will float to the surface and try to reenter into your body at the water line. You should try to stay under the water, including head, full body, as long as you can stand it. if you have the regular human scabies and not a resistant strain, then the normal mite meds should work for you. If you have a resistant strain of mites, then there are other topicals you can use.

Have you considered the other people who will use the pool? Who knows how long it will take to kill them, and some will be along the edge of the pool waiting for a body to slide by.

Don't u just love it when someone asks a question; we help them and they don't come back to respond; maybe he drowned in his pool.

With right amount of Pool Chemicals and regular maintenance of your swimming pool, you pool will be scabies-free. Scabies are infection caused by mite called Sarcoptes scabeii.

I got scabies at Water Park. Purchased a season pass, but do not feel comfortable to go there again, seems like they don't care about hygiene and regular maintenance..(((

Swimming pool/sauna may provide some temporary relief, but that's about it.

You may actually be making things worse. To get away, from bleach and hot steam, they will dig deeper into your skin and go inactive for a bit, but you likely will not have killed any. Also because they will have set in deeper, they will be even harder to treat otherwise.

What they can do is some will float at the surface and infect other areas. Since you cannot submerse your head all the time, some may attach around your neckline or what ever is at the surface. Once they attach at your neck line it is a short distance for them to infect your head, scalp, ears, eyes, nose.

You are not doing any one any favors, not even yourself.

I've actually caught my scabies at bay for about 3 months since I got it I have a couple come up once and a while but I spot treat the ones I see with acitone wich converts to suger in your body (don't use 2 much) you can actually feel them sqirm when the die I then spray myself down with 3 parts water 1 part bleach wich kills all young scabies I figure so no new scabies survive and the scabies life cycle ends after a while. A pool lady also said on another forum if a pool is properly maintained it will be scabie free cause the chlorine kills them I've tried everything the real crime is that crap company's and the government is trying to sell you and if your scabies are really out broken in more then one spot I'd recommend taking a bleach bath at home I use my own discression me swimming in the condition I'm in killing all surface scabies with bleach spray I'm at least drowning them they say at least half hour baths to drown them everyday the way I look at it is now I feel better when I go to the grocery store I'm not infecting more half these people are so contagious to themselves that by the time there buying they're permethrin they've infected they're whole pharmacy

MDC been treating like that for 3 months.. should be cured, Actually, bleach did seem to get rid of them on some parts of my body, but not everywhere. Not sure why. Swimming pool does not work though. Almost everyone thinks of this route otherwise, everyone who goes swimming would be cured. Also, there are many reports of people who got scabies from swimming at a public pool and public pools are well maintained.

I'm happy to inform you that I'm pretty sure the little bastards are done and I was by no means reccomending the swimming pool as a treatment plan but there's something to be said about chlorine as HELP in the treatment ( for the love of god don't go to the swimming pool if you have lots of scabies mine were usually only a couple by the end of it I really had them at bay and always was washing off first with 2% salitic acid face wash also reccomended to stop them from. Sing surfaced on your skin) but hlorine/ bleach will only help I went to the swimming pool and sauna everyday and it seemed to help from multiplying and getting worse but you still need permethrin if you want them dead but bleach also kills the bacterial layer that protects them from things like permethrin if you don't have a bed cover already and pillow covers go to Walmart and but them I also bought a cover for my futon I spray it with water and 99% isopropanol 1/3 and 2/3 water and of. COurse clean laundry ect we also realized after buying the covers that the things really do not live on the floor and stuff we woul waste so much time cleaning all the hardwood and disinfecting the counters and other things that did t have scabies on them our time was not focused properly at the end I was just spot treating with bleach spray and I'm finishing up with a just in case 3rd treatment this weekend and. Y the looks of things we are past to post scabies now soo I'm happy please stop reading all the damaging information all over this is what mad it most hard to really get rid of them it caused me to by hundreds of dollarss in frickin natural heAlth products I'm so sick of the marketing misinformation I hope this information helps soak in the bath with a cup of bleach to compensate going to the pool for obvious reasons

Also spot treat with acetone nail polish remover you can actually feel the little bastards start aqirming then to hold it till it stops hurting it will only hurt if there is a mite in the area if. Not its a post scabies bump most likely

MDC, I will try your technique with the bleach, I've been dong a hot tub over flowing with chlorine, and it seems to subside them, but not kill them. I've been itching for bat a month, and been taking rx pills and that didn't so shit, I've read that you could have gotten rid of them but still itch up to four to six weeks!!! Then if you don't itch they're gone, but if you still itch, you're screwed! I will update you on my bleachings, thanx for the info, I was thinking along those lines, I think I will also throw out most the clothes I own and quarantine the rest for a week to kill any in there, I read they will die without a host after three days?
