my doctor gave me perm 10%.. it is great. after I used it and washed it off after hot showerIt felt as though I had been at a spa.. my pores felt great. Only problem is next day Im scratching .. upper areas only. The dr. didnt test for scabies .. he said the treatment treats a lot of things. But what is biting me is it looks like little threads with a head. then after the perm i find drosephilia looking bugs. small fruitflies.. i took my oldest dog to vet. he said she didnt have mange. she sleeps with me and is 13 years and 3lbs. so what is it. Its not bedbugs.. Im even see me being bit..

Hi all what a weird way to talk, but recently i took my 2 children to the outerbanks on vacation and within 2-3 weeks after being back i started breaking out with little bites all over, i went to the doctor and they said either sand fleas, bed bugs or possibly scabies.. GROSS! i freaked out crying and have been looking up every kind of bug bite, and bug. i got the permethrin cream did myself 2 days in a row keeping it on for at least 15- 16 hrs a time, did my 2 children once. is this gonna work? i will try the borax bath too? does that work? ive washed everything in my house went thru numerous cans of lysol spray, bought pillow covers and mattress covers that zipper. How does a super clean person like me get this shit..

We recently bought a new puppy from a breeder, we were told the puppy had dry skin, took it anyway thinking that way an easy fix. We took her to our vet, he says a food allergy, she is scratching like crazy. Now my 3 yr old, my husband, and I all have what the drs are thinking is scabies. We got perm. I hope it works, any suggestions on cleaning furniture and carpets?

My scalp began itching about 2 to 3 mos ago. I work outside in my yard alot, I thought I was itching from some little white flys so I ignored it and thought it would just go away. I now have these little red dots that on occassion scab over. An aquantaince said she was itching and the Dr wasn't sure but treated her for scabies for preventative measures. Apparently she isn't itching anylonger. I didn't want to use the toxic chemicles so I called Duper Supplements and they recommended lotion with Neem oil. I was told it would take 24hr and they would be gone. Well, I am still itching and was told it must not be scabies. I am unemployed and can't afford a Dr. I wash everything, bedding etc. vacuum and have been for about 3 wks. My head isnt itching as much and the oil seemed to make it sensitive. I keep seeing more dots though and feel little stings, help, any advice. Thanks!

Apply very carefully from head-to-toe. MASSAGE into skin well. Leave on for eight to fourteen hours, wash off. Repeat in two weeks. Vacuum EVERYTHING including mattress, couches, chairs, floors. Wash ALL clothing and linens in VERY hot water, and dry in a hot dryer. Keep EVERYTHING clean, (laundry, beds, toilets especially), during the whole process of treatments. GOOD LUCK

Listen to what Jeannie told you that is exactly how you do the permetrin 5%. I found out nov 30th so I have done 2 treatments and feel like Im on the road to recovery, but you have to do the cleaning too or you will just keep getting reinfested. This forum can scare you but it can also help you.

TIP: Dont forget under you finger and toe nails. When I applied to me and my kids I cut our finger and toe nails and I had my kids to scratch the palm of my hand. Dont just rub on massage into skin.

Well I do know the permethrin makes you itchy too, how much did the doc give you? I really dont want to make the judgement rather to do it again or not right now I guess thats up to you. Alot of people say do it from the neck down but I put all over me and the kids because it is possible to get it there. If I was you the next time I decided to put it on I would definetly put it all over and massage it in well. YES it is absolutly necessary to wash everything in hot water and dry on the hottest dryer setting too. People get reinfested from their beds towels cloths pets,ect. Your entire living space has to be cleaned. I dont know if you know about post scabies or not but its not that great either it can take up to a month for the itching to stop and in bad cases it can even be longer. I know depressing huh? Just be confident . In my case I itch more in post scabies my last treatment of perm was on the 11th and my itching is still happening. I am new to this too just trying to give you the information that I know. I do know this isnt something you get over in one day its takes time. Try to educate yourself the best you can. Jeannie has been such a help to me the person that answered you first I have learned alot from the people on here and Ive made new friends that understand me.

One more thing this forum will scare the crap out of ya because some people has been dealing with this for years most people that has been cured dont come here anymore. It is possible to get rid of these things. I am hoping to post in the I am cured thread soon. I just wanna make sure that we are before I do. The reason you itch and still have little bumps appear after you treat is these mites are under our skin and they have to decompose theirs no way to get them out so your skin will have reactions to this. It can take a month for the mites to decompose. Alot of people over treat because of this and make their skin worse so be careful cause your skin is real fragile right now.

oh yeah you are supposed to use it after a bath or shower sorry to leave that out, put on like we said and then go to bed. it says 8 to 14 hours. We done the 14 hrs. Good Luck. Remeber the itching gets worse before getting better. My head didnt itch at all then after I used the perm it itched for a couple of days. My itching is getting better each day
