I was in a similar nightmare until I started connecting the dots; please remember that I am not a doctor and have only my personal experience to recommend. I believe I got scabies when I was 8 and finally found a cure at 33. The timeframe and severity make a difference in my opinion and each person should be treated differently. I used two tactics; treat at the same time yourself and your environment including cars, office, and all personal belongings. Everything has to reviewed and cleaned. Period.<quoted text>
I know exactly what you are talking about. I got lice about 4 years ago and have spent thousands! The nurses treat me like shit, one doctor told me she cant help me, another one said it's in my mind. My whole life has come down to trying to get rid of it! I even shaved my head! I bought a steam vac. I wash my sheets everynite. I have used everything you can think of. Nix, store brand stuff, Ulesfia, Listerine, alcohol, vinegar, bought an electric comb. Have put everything in my head and left it on all night, conditioner, petrolium jelly, teatree oil, pepperment oil, nothing works! my life is ruined.
Scabies go thru periods of infestation and can cause intense itching which you then scratch and when u do this, u pickup female fromites and eggs. Which you then deposit back onto your body and objects u touch often. Lice shampoo 1% permethrin was effective at only pissing them off but not much else. Scabies die at 5 percent or higher. Even then, if you have had them awhile, this can take a while to resolve. Don't give up. Ever. There is no mystery here. You dont have to freak. You and your environment are compromised. It is as simple as that. Also your immune system may be compromised. Focus on feet and hands when you treat with 5% solution. Never more than dosage one time per week for no more than 16 hours each time. Cover all of your body head and feet and hands and keep it on for 8 hours to 16. Keep cleaning with borax powder and water and spray Lysol in your house. Counters couches mattresses. Make your own permethrin with 10% from farm and fleet. It is not 1 to 1. Mix 4 1/2 ounces lotion with 1 1/2 ounce 10% permethrin. Only wash the clothes you touch in the past 2 weeks. Wash your sheets 3 times in a row to kill eggs. Not joking about that part by the way. Iron your good clothes well and don't ruin them in hot water. You may have to repeat this cycle for up to 2 months. Depending on your level of scabies outbreak. Please do not abuse or overuse the permethrin. It'll burn the hair off your head if you don't use it wisely . Only treat one time per week. Obviously be careful.
