Update. Pretty much same as the last update. Still have the bruises/nodules. They arent really raised bumps anymore, just get hives when itches although I dont scratch. The lines have gotten worse. Now I am unsure if these are burrows because how big they are, but they are scary looking. The itching isnt too bad which makes me unsure if I am cured or not. have some red bumps on my ankles/knee caps. I ran out of the enzyme spray/oils and DE. Unsure what my next step will be.

Unemployment+no health insurance+school+scabies= Life ruiner!

Please if your going to post anything negative or try to say I am not doing anything right, then dont post at all. I am taking all necessary precautions to treat this, so dont DOUBT ME! Thanks

Regarding a comment about best yet by cedarcide. It has a delicate cedar smell. I love the smell.
Way better smell than windex.

Try taking a bath in Borax soap from QFC. It has worked for me. In fact I found it on a scabies website. It dries them out. They can not build up a resistence to it.

I suffered from scabies for 13 years and spent thousands on doctors and medicines that never worked.

Pour a 1/4 or a 1/3 of a box in the tub and then soak. Rinse off and repeat once or twice a day for about a week.

Just try it.

Buggie,
I could not disagree more. It might have a delicate cedar smell the next day after application, but it has a HORRIFIC & STRONG cedar smell when first applied. The wife & I could not stand the smell. I have a gallon to sell at my next garage sale, CHEAP.

I went and visited the dermatologist once again today. I still itch from time to time, and the lines are getting worse. She claims they are stretch marks, and that I have dry irritated skin. That is why it itches, and that I need to stop using sulfur soap, and use moistorizing stuff. So, at this point I am unsure if I still have scabies or not. The post itch thing really sucks. I will try the moisurizing stuff and see what happens. Just thought I would update.

Another quesiton, does DE dry your skin out? I belive it does just because its a powder, and I wonder if thats making my skin worse as well. well, on to healthy things for the skin and i will see what hapens.

Itching Guy,
PLEASE, DO NOT put dry DE directly on your skin. You will create a serious dust health hazard. Please mix it with a carrier body oil and I recommend Grapeseed Oil. Grapeseed oil nourishes the skin, making it feel sikly smooth.

Another case of "to each his own".
I, too, love the smell of cedar.

Well I've had this almost a yr. now..I truly wonder why no one eles has caught them too. my son, my husband, the grandkids that come over cause my daughter totally thinks I'm crazy..I have had the burrows and rashes all over the body. I can honestly say there has not been one day that I did not put something on my skin..I have even burned my feet horribly with bleach, epsom salts and borax..NEVER do that. Well tried many of cures on the site..Finally what brought me back to earth 3 nites of 2 Cups of borax and peroxide (16 oz)..after bath I use the msm (13 tabs powered)mixed with coconut oil, lavender, clove with a few drops of peppermint. Felt like a million bucks after 3 days and then must have gotten reinfested from handling laundry and the dryer vent..is all I can think. Will do my 4th bath tonite and put msm cream on...listerine mouthwash does releive the itches and so does Arm and Hammer...thank you for all the remedies and I'm not alone...I hope soon the grandkids will forget the gramma with the gloves on and magnifying glass...lol yes this made me a freakazoid. espcially when company came over..took me hrs to get ready (environment)just made me sick thinkin someone would catch them. Now I feel alittle strong as the numbers are down..will update later..

Simone, do you or your grandkids have pets? This sounds like what I had. It was mites from the animals that only bothered me. I was miserable, and my derm thought I had resistant scabies. The animals looked fine, and my vet said that they were fine. They were on Revolution at the time. Had to treat my house, my self and especially my animals to get rid of this. I know that they can be carried by stuff from your (son's?) house, My husband's suitcase brought it to my sister and her cats many states away. I finally went to a vet derm who diagnosed probable cheylatiella on the animals, and put them on Sentinel. After about three weeks my relief was profound. They got it again after the treatment ended. I now have them on long term ivermectin and Sentinel (depending on the animal) and I am doing great.

I have high hopes for Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth mixed into Grape seed Oil and apply all over body. No odor, and extremely healthy for the skin. IMO, they are most likely molting pouches. You should do a skin scraping and examine with microscope.

If you have resistant scabies the only cure is to take Ivermectin two doses two weeks apart.

In most cases, scabies are not resistant to the effective meds, people just think they had a resistant strain of scabies.

If you are fooling around with a seemingly primitive, but in reality serious disease of the entire surface of your body, your skin, you will never get rid of the dreadful mites.

Some sufferers simply missed the exit! All kind of fancy but phony remedies and cures won't kill your infection. They just ruin your skin, ruin your wallet, and ruin your health.

All in all, resistance of scabicides is rather rare.
