Hi there! Yes, my great orange cat BOB is doing fine. The vet derm said he was much better and she could not see evidence of the bugs he had. He is not scratching hardly ever.(Neither am I now)
I still have the brown scars though they are fading. I will tell you all how my lawsuit with Kaiser goes. First I am going to ask for 25K for pain and damage to my skin due to 2 years of misdiagnosis, wrong meds given, and delay.
Then, I will ask them to pay for dermabrasion or lazer treatment to get rid of some of these scars due to thier failure.
After I ask for this, if they do not do it, I am getting a personal injury attorney and fighting it tooth and nail. No one and I mean no one should have to put up with that bad treatment.
i sold two cars because of it also. What a nightmare.
I often wondered about your cats, Bitey. Thank God you are cured. And that your kitties are doing good. Give Bob a hug from me.
I hope you get some money from those bastards.

Good luck to you Bitey. Please keep us informed. I feel I've been "failed" too in more ways than the present conditions.

I have been fighting scabies too but I had eyelid mites and cured them using the research from the internet.
Have you ever had itchy dry eyelids? Feel like something is in your eyes?
I have had this for a year or more and Drs and Ophthemologists do not know what it is and cannot cure it for me.
So I went online and Googled the problem. Also I got a handheld microscope and looked at what looked like TINY WHITE EGGS in my lashes and some other wierd junk.
I diagnosed myself as having an overabundance of Demodex Mites in my eyelashes, after breast cancer chemo treatments in 2005, my body has not been the same and i probably got this due to my immune system problems after chemo.
What I found online is a Tea Tree cure:
1. Get some tea oil and mix it with macadamia oil so the tea tree oil is 20%.
2. Get tea tree liquid soap and tea tree shampoo.
3, Every day shower and wash your hair with tea tree shamppoo and close eyes and wash eyelids and eyelashes with the tea tree shampoo and tea tree liquid soap. This is the first step, you should try and gently clean your eyelids and lash area for about 4 minutes if you can. Keep those eyes closed.
4. Once or twice a week, in addition to the tea tree showering, clse your eyes tightly and get q-tips and rub the 20% tea tree solution in your lash area and on the eyelids. For about 5 minutes, the research scientist does it agressively on his subjects for 10 minutes but that was too long for me.
5. After a week my eye problems were gone. I think it would work if you had scabies mites in or near your eyelids also, I would try it!
6.I view my eyelids and lashes each week with the microscope and so far so good! No more little white eggs on eyelashes.
Thank you all for these Scabies boards, i have learned a lot and used a lot of the information to hopefully cure my scabies!!!!
your article is gold.. I have treated myself for scabies, bird mites, etc.etc.. but I have not all the symptons associated to those parasites, except as you described in your article, so I will follow you cure process and see what happen... by the way.. there is an article from Peru on bird mites that treated patients with oral Ivermetrin and topic Permethrin..than seem to reduce my symphoms

Thanks Aaron!!!!
I was just going through my herb cupboard and came across Sea Buckthorn. Knew I got it for skin. Added some to lotion. Will look at your links and will likely add the other ingredients which I have on hand.

Here is all the info you need to know about Demodex Mites
1) just about everyone over the age of around 10 has demodex mites, pet owners of dogs and cats will definately have them.
2) Generally they cause little or no problem if your imune system is healthy.
3) When they become problematic they can cause havoc with your skin with varying degrees and intensities of acne roscea.
4) Generally demodex only affects the face and head but in an imune supressed person it can quickly spread to other parts of the body.
5) The easiest way to determine that you are sufering from demodex mites is having acne rosea accompanied with a tickling/crawling sensation on your face and head at night this may progress to other parts of the body.
6) The life cycle of the mite is as follows. Mites lay eggs 12 hrs after becoming an Adult, Eggs take 60 hours to become a Larva, Larva take 36 hrs to become a Protontype, Protontype take 72 hrs to become a Nymph, Nymphs take 60 hrs to become an Adults. Total life cycle is 10 days.
7) Demodex come in two distinctive flavours, Demodex Folliculorum and Demodex Brevis. Upto 8 mites live in each of the hair folicules and feed on the sebum/oil. They live deep enough and build a protective membrain to be protect themselves from most agents that you can put on your body. However they do not live so deep as to come into contact with the blood suply carrying distructive white blood cells.
8) You must improve your imune system if you are to win this battle with the mites. A mega-dose (body builders strength)multivitimine taken once a day with additional Brewers Yeast taken two or three times a day should do the trick.
8) There are two distinct methods of attack for Demotex Mite infestations. You can attack the eggs and/or the adults. Obviously attacking both is the best solution.
9) To attack the eggs, grind in a pithal, 10 whole cloves into a fine powder and take this four times a day. It taste horrible and you will need a glass of water to get it to go down. But I have it on authority that as the body becomes saturated the cloves will kill Demodex eggs on contact.(Its a bit like eating whole garlic, you can eventually smell it on your skin)
10) To attack the adults there is two distinct formulas you need to make up. The first is a plain 5-7 percent Sulphur Powder mixed with a carrier oil.(I judge it by volume) Jojoba oil is the best to use as it is the closest to your natural sebum which the mites feed off but you can use any food type oil, rape seed, corn oil or olive oil or even your fabourite hand cream or body lotion as long as it is oil based. The second is a Borax and Hydrogen Peroxide mix. You take Three cups of hot water and add one cup of hydrogen peroxide to it. Then you stir in three table spoons of Borax powder. A WORD OF WARNING -- DO NOT CONFUSE BORIC ACID WITH BORAX -- BORIC ACID IS VERY CORROSIVE AND DANGEROUS TO USE

11) Both formulas kill ALL BREEDS OF MITES on contact.
12) The Borax and Hydrogen Peroxide formula is best for animals. Just make it up and put it into a spray bottle. Give them a normal bath and shampoo and then rinse. Let them shake themselves dry and then give a good dowsing of the Borax Solution twice a week for about 3 months. Be careful around the eyes.
13) For steralising your home use the spray bottle to spray just about everything that you have. Do your bed in the morning and leave the covers pulled back. Do your sofa, chairs soft furnishings, carpets and floors last thing at night. Dont forget to do the dogs bed as well.
14) The Borax Solution in a spray bottle can be used like a hospital hand disinfectant after you have touched your pet, squirt a little onto your hands and rub in to kill any mites that you may have picked up.
15) Now treating you and your family. Yes is one of them cases where if one is done then everyone has to be done including the pets. Bummer aint it. Have a good hot bath that contains a pint of brown vinigar in the water last thing at night.(vinigar helps to open the pours of the skin) After dripping dry a little rub in the borax or the sulphur solution. Every part of the body must be covered with the eyes being the only exception.
Drip drying is the best way of drying in this operation though you can use an electric fan to help. Sorry no towels in this operation.
16) You need to change all of your clothing and your sheets and pillow cases every single day while you are being treated.
It is best to have at least two sets of pillows so that you can alternate between them on a three day cycle.
17) Now for the bad bit. This laborious treatment is the only one that will work. You may have top continue doing it for upto 120 days. It is only when you have no symptoms for ten days that you can be sure that you are clear. Any member of the family that cuts the cure short will set the whole family back to time zero and you will have to start over again. You cannot cheat the Mites, they intend not only to suvive but to also thrive on your body. They have been doing it for thousands of years and have become experts at suviving.
Doctors remidies such as Derbac M, Permethrin and other incetacide agents will not penetrate the protective membrain they have put in the hair folicle. Ivermectin carried in the blood will not reach or affect the mites at all.
ITS YOUR DETERMINATION TO RID YOURSELF AND YOUR HOUSE OF THE MITES THAT WILL WIN IN THE END.

-the posts here this evening are not me. AARON is pasting again. For Demodex on eyes and lashes...wash with diluted baby shampoo...rinse, apply TTO. If the IP does not say United States...it is one of the trolls. Some of the pasted info is good IMO.

Hi Jesselyn,
Not sure if you meant this or not, but no one should ever put undiluted tea tree oil on their eyelids. Only a 20% solution is necessary to be effective as stated in the first post of this thread by Bitey. Using more that that is a waste of money, and could cause a terrible reaction...it did for me.

Hi Jesselyn (non United States),
Interesting post about the habits of demodex. I had an outbreak of them after the first time I took ivermectin. I felt all cured with the iver from the mites/collembolla/whatever and then my face and eyes started being affected big-time. I used the method that Bitey posted, and thank goodness it worked quickly for me. At the time it felt like I had wiped out one type of bug with the iver, but another remained and flourished. The information in your post seems to explain how that could have happened.

Hi Armed , could you tell me what the reaction was as I also used it neat on my eyelids and it caused them to swell up .
I just wondered if something similar happened to you.
I have since discovered that Octenisan bacterial wash used on the eyelids and all over to be the one thing that has reduced 90% of all crawling ,biting etc sensations.

Hi Nt x,
I looked at a lot of sites while going through this, but not curezone. I've heard it mentioned a lot and looked at it once but the format was confusing to me, and by that time I had found things that worked for me.

Hi Ben,
Yes it was the same..basically I burned the crap out of my face. My eyelids swelled up and I was all red around my eyes face and neck from using it straight. I don't have a problem with it at all when it is diluted in soaps, shampoos or oils.

This is where I got started here. I have used tea tree oil straight on eyelids. I'm ok with it unless it gets into the eye, which happens occasionally. Burns like fury, but ok after the burn stops. Still use it for eyelids some. Don't think I want it over a large area straight though.
I looked at curezone some too.
