Children should weigh 35 pounds or more in order to take Stromectol.(Not 110 lbs.)

Hi, Lynn: I don't think perm cream alone will do away with this hellbug. I think you'd be right to go back and demand an oral medication along with the perm cream. The perm cream alone works on the outside, but the Stromectol (brand name for ivermectin medicine) works from the inside out, too, and gets into your skin all over, including your scalp. Your kids need to be at least 110 lbs to take it, though. But a two-prong attack is definitely needed to help get rid of this thing. Doctors are so reluctant to prescribe it and I don't know why, because I've read on the CDC and other medical sites that it's usually well tolerated and has a good track record for treating scabies. Doctors are about 20 years behind the times with this mite. It's become a superbug.
If the docs won't prescribe the Stromectol to you, you can go the ivermectin horsepaste route, which actually is the same medication, only it's over-the-counter and meant to keep animals free from parasites. You have to buy it from livestock/feed stores, or on-line--I ordered mine on eBay, Durvet Paste 1.87%, a good brand, and it's cheap. There are tons of threads here on this forum about how to use the horsepaste. When the docs wouldn't prescribe any more Stromectol for me, that's what I used.
And I also bombed my house with Raid Fumigator in the blue box (three cans in each box), which contains permethrin. I know that's extreme, but I truly think it helped immensely to get rid of a lot of bugs in my surroundings.
Lots of work. I almost--ALMOST!!--wish some doctors would get it just once, so they could find out firsthand what it's like to have it. Then they might give it the attention and research it deserves to fight it, and maybe discover a vaccination for it once and for all. But, like you, I wouldn't wish this off on my worst enemy. Please hang in there. You deserve to feel better.
Or the child should be over 5 years old. and weigh 35 pounds or more.

Hi, VSS: You're right--thanks. I got it mixed up with Lindane lotion, which I read somewhere shouldn't be taken if you're under 110 lbs, because they consider it more toxic, I guess. I just came back on this thread to correct what I said originally and found you had already done it!

Dears,
I think much of the itch you get after treatment is delayed symptoms, simply the mites are dying inside your skin for more than one month after that you begin to really get free and that gives you an allergic and inflammatory reaction which is well known. Don't be too aggressive on your skin or you will get more and more sensitive and even more prone to new infestations. A gentle oil like sesame oil with some drops of neem, tea tree and clover oil (those last three only three drops each for every spoon of sesame oil) will help a lot. Good hygiene and washing; ironing clothes will do the rest, provided you don't get reinfected. REinfections are typical with new, strong active lesions. Good luck.

The itch from scabies comes from the fact that it provokes an intenese allergic reaction. The itch can persist for some time following successful treatment as once the immune system has been provoked it remains on "high alert" for awhile and minor provocations that would not have otherwise caused any symptoms now can. The itch on your scap is probably an example, as the scabies mite does not infect the scalp. You could consider using a mild moisturinging cream, making sure your bath soap is mild and chemical/fragrance free, and consider taking an OTC antihistamine until this cycle is borken.
Hey there! I too am experiencing these sensations of crawling after 3 treatments of perm. cream. I will have little bumps here and there and my scalp will itch every now and then. I would love it if someone would answer this. I'm freaking out and wondering if I should start doing my cleaning rituals again. Helpp!!

I've been having crawling sensations in my hair especially on the back of my neck and occasionally on my feet . I've been treating myself with tea tree oil sulphur soap which made my symptoms worse epsoms salt cider vinegar Vaseline . My itching has calmed down alot from what it was in the beginning when it was so intense it was waking me up at night and I had itching everywhere . My mother thinks I'm insane because of the cleaning , bagging things up and because I have no rash and she has no symptoms does not believe me . My daughter has slight symptoms itchy hair occasionally itchy skin some nights waking up crying , but as much as I'm trying to get rid of them it's not working because my mother or my daughters family won't treat themselves and just think I'm crazy .

i was treated for scabies with ivermectin as i cant tolerate pesticides. My skin is very sensitive since and i get imprints from cloth and clothing- also like for last two weeks no itching then today i get some rash on my upper legs and some itching. skin doctors don't know anything so i am glad i have a doctor here in nyc who is a kinesiologist and also chiro -he told me the scabies is gone and what i am experiencing is the trauma from it and post scabies. I write this to tell people who think this is scabies post treatment that it seems the just having scabies can make the skin sensitive and also cause rashes after-- i see him next week as he has been away. for instance before treatment my skin was never in my life this sensitive. i see people on forums who put that pesticide cream on them many times because they think they still have it. That cream is cancer causing so be careful with it. i realize this takes time and is a major trauma to the skin. but i too have had skin rashes and sensitive to everything even my bedding leaves an imprint on my skin. I told the skin doctor about that and she said thats normal! no it is not- in all my 48 years i never had that. but my docor the one who tests to see whats going on says it is from histimines and truama from all this- so please be patient and dont go crazy and put more toxins on your skin

Um, Ivermecting *is* a pesticide. Specifically, it's an arcaricide.

Saying that all pesticide creams -- including FDA-approved prescriptions -- are carcinogenic is a pretty serious claim. Please provide specifics and link your references. Otherwise, you're just inciting unnecessary fear.

And if someone is interested in ivermectin:

Ivermectin is no acaricide, it's an avermectin.

Um, Ivermectin is in a class of drugs called Avermectins, which are used -- among other things -- as arcaricides. For someone who claims to be a bunch of scientists, you're not very scientific.

"Ivermectin is a drug mixture of two structurally semisynthetic lactones that is used in veterinary medicine as an anthelmintic, boticide, acaricide, and insecticide..."

http://equimed.com/drugs-and-medications/refe...

Acaricides are pesticides that kill members of the arachnid subclass Acari, which includes ticks and mites.

So, yes, Ivermectin is an Arcaricide, as are the other Avermectins.

Now, Mr. Scientist, where are the links to all of the peer-reviewed, published studies proving that Ivermectin causes cancer?

The cream works you have to give it time and apply it rite from head to the bottom of your feet, the cream is harsh on your skin will make you itch after treatment and you could feel some crawling still I do, for people who is suffering from post scabies as I am, as the cream like I said is harsh on your skin I found out that lotion didn't work for me, this is going to sound crazy but it worked for my kids and I, scramble eggs and grab some cooking oil take it to bathroom with in the tub apply egg from neck down let it dry this helps trap and suffocate any live mites if any on you witch I down it to help calm my nerves, when dry let it sit a bit, then apply the cooking oil in your hair and down this helps with the itch do to the cream and dry skin, yes it's a oiled mess but helps, I didn't use any soap to wash off just water, and took a shower in the morning washing away oil left behind, hope it helps tho worked for us, good luck all
