I have had Scabies for 1 month now and used the creams and pills. I spoke to my great granny and she told me to put clear fingernail polish on them after the use of the perm cream and that this will suffocate them and it will get rid of the mites debris when you peel it off in 4 days. You must put it on all bites and bumps and keep applying before showering for 4 days. then peel off. I have done this and I feel much better and have not gotten any new ones and the itching has gotten sooooooooooooooooooo much better. It does sting but it does work. You must use the clear hardening nail polish, that is the only kind that works. If still itching after you peel it off in 4 days, just re-apply. It really does work. Good Luck to all of you. I sure know what you are all going through.

Use clear fingernail polish, the hardening kind. It will stop the itching and does kill them by suffocating them, must apply before showering and re-apply before showering everyday for 4 days. This is an old remedy from my great granny that used it for any kind of burrowing mite especially chiggers. I have tried and still using and my scabies are diminishing and the itch is practically gone. When you peel off the polish after 4 days, it also takes the debris with it. Its awesome. Warning - it does sting when you put it on the sores and bites.

permethrin 10 from tractor supply. See my thread. I am not selling anything. It just works. Drastic but it kills them.

The only true cure for Scabies is a prescription from your doctor for Stromectol aka Ivermectin, and the topical Advantix II Blue which is for dogs and has 40% Permethrin. The oral Stromectol dose is based on your weight (230lbs=24mg) on a empty stomach with lots of water every day for 8-days. Likewise rub undiluted Advantix all over your body scalp to soles of your feet two or three times a day for 8-days. Some people leave their infested living space to stay at a different motel room every night to avoid reinvesting themselves, others managed to clean and vacuum enough to create a Clean Space. Follow these instructions and you will be cured once and for all. I am very disappointed the people on this forum are all over the map with recommendations of unproven remedies by creams, oils and soaps. DO NOT BE MISLED! The time you waste on these unqualified remedies only serves to allow the mites to reproduce and spread the infestation over your body making you more miserable and the problem harder to cure! Yes, the Stromectol tablets and Advantix II Blue are very expensive but combined they are the only absolute cure! You can buy Advantix II Blue at Petsmart or online at . This is not a spam, I had a severe case of Scabies and tried most of the remedies mentioned on this forum but they didn't cure me, in fact, I wasted lots of money and my condition became worse. Doctors, even Infectious Dicease Specialists do not know how to cure Scabies. I saw eight doctors and was mislead every time. I am cured and do not need to be here but I want to help you because no one helped me!

I can recommend a reputable pharmacy (Ivermectin) I received the order and it was on time and the pills work great.

The common one-time recommended oral dose is 200mcg per kilogramm of body wgt.
1 mcg = 0.001 mg. So, for a 90kg (200lbs) person, that works out to 18g.
Be aware, that there is no studies on any interaction between permethrin and ivermectin taken concurrently. Every person is different, and something that works for someone may not be safe for you. You should run this idea by a health care professional to see if they pee their pants when hearing about it. Permethrin and Ivermectin are both work by interfering with CNS neuro-transmitters there may very well be some unexpected interaction.
Come to think of it, pushing out the permethrin timing to perhaps 24 hours before taking the ivermectin may be a bette way to go. This way the permetrin is washed off before the next ivermectin dose is taken.
I think you mean 200 mcg's = 18 mg = five 3mg pills. Took my first dose today - I hope it works...or I'm getting a gun....just kidding. I have been using 10% Permethrin bought in a farm store mixed with equal parts lotion, it's not doing the trick. So, now on to the Ivermectin. Also have been washing clothes & sheets daily in hot water, drying for over an hour in the dryer, vacuuming daily. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.

Your math is off.
200 mcg = 0.2 mg
0.2mg/kg x 90kg = 18mg NOT 18g

Yes, iver and perm combined will effect a cure.

Ivermectin and permethrin are the most powerful medications for scabies. Simultaneously used in a responsible therapy plan, they will eradicate each and every scabies ailment, from a severe through a crusted case of infestation.
