Supposedly it is best mixed with something super greasy like vaseline,
or cold cream. If you want something lighter like for during the day,
mix like 1 tablespoon of sulfur to 10 of lotion. It's like a 9 to 1 or
10 to 1 ration. That's Bill's recipe. Good luck

In China, Sulfur Ointment sold in pharmacy is 10% sulfur in vaseline. If your skin can stand it, you can add to 15% or 20%, but no more as Sulfur dries your skin! Also notes that sulfur itself doesn't kill mites. Sulfur mixed with something from you skin (I don't know exactly what in skin, sweat?) kills mites. So don't waste sulfur in washing your cloths.
The instruction of sulfur ointment is: 3 days of topical application from neck to toes, without shower, without changing cloths. After that, you take a shower, change your cloths and bed sheets, take a 3 days break, than repeat. This is formal instruction, however, many people say that sulfur is slow kill, so somebody suggest it's better to use it for 2 weeks without break. In this way, you don't give mites any chance, especially eggs. I can't do it myself, because I work from monday to friday, and sulfur ointment is too messy and it smells. I use Eurex and Perm for weekdays, plus daily house cleaning and cloths washing. Hope I can cure by doing all these...

Has anyone had any luck mixing sulfur with vaseline or cold creme without the aid of a blender? I was thinking of using a fork or whisker.

Does it necessarily have to be mixed with a petroleum base to be effective and safe?
