I had the same problem, with me it was re-investation. Still dealing with it. I think iverm is the real deal--I am going to try that as soo as I get an rx for enough to do any good--seems like it takes multiple treatments to gt the eggs etc after they are hatched. Good luck

Thats also exactly what happened to me, Ive been dealing with this for something like 3 months... about a month ago I thought I beat it, moved to an apartment , had only basic furniture and slept on a air mattress that I still cleaned daily... then about a week ago, I felt itchy.. and started getting patches on both upper arms... maybe the arms are common spots that reinfestation appears... sigh, god speed tex... Im going back to Dr. and Im gonna lie.. Im gonna tell him Ive had it for 8 or 9 months, have tried the perm cream and they just keep coming back, hoping maybe he'll give me Iver and refills of the cream.

there you go!! lie to the doctor. otherwise, they won't refill for you. tell the doctor (while you are scratching alot right in front of him/her) that you work with someone that has sores and is itching all the time. practice in front of the mirror. ha ha ha.. it's true,,, you have to lie to the doctor... lol....
lie, cheat and steal for that ivermectin and permethrin cream.

How long have you been dealing wih this? I've had it 5 months. I am recently trying a new therapy, but not sure if it isnt making things worse. Infrared sauna 2 times per day. Shower and wash hair after each. But I have really had some breakouts. I love the sauana, infraredis supposed to penetrate deep into skin so I thought this would kill or deter them. I wonder if I have gotte worse because they are more stirred up and active. Maybe the storm before the calm?? Any info you have on that would be appreciated.

I did join a gym at one point. YMCA. They had a really good hot sauna. These things poured out of my face in that sauna. So, if you do this, ensure you have your towels to wipe them off of you. But, my car was infested with them, so I was just reinfecting myself by riding to the gym every day in my infected car. i know of others using your infrared sauna (i don't know about this). they are on birdmitesorg yahoo group and finding1cure yahoo group. I have had this 3 years now and will probably have them until I die, which will be about 20 more years to go. lol..... but whose counting? lol..... I can laugh about it now. at one point, I was so depressed with this.
everyone else gets rid of them, though. everyone except for me. and maybe a couple more that i know of.

well, i got some new pets, so, now i will not be able to do it. i have a new dog and cat now. and will not get rid of them, ever. i'm a little old now, too, so that's another reason. the mites just love me, i guess. every time i pet my dog, i get bites on my hands and arms. i usually wash my hands and arms after petting her, but sometimes I don't bother. so, at this rate. i'm not gonnna kill myself anymore. in the beginning with this, i was poisoning myself slowly. so, after 3 years, i have learned what to do and not do. i am just a sucker for pets. I took my dog from my next door neighbor, because they were not taking care of her properly, so i ended up with her because she came to my window every day, and cried outside. holy cow. hello dog. what do you want? here, let me pick all 600 ticks off of you and bath you. i have some mites for you, after all your ticks are gone. it's like that. i don't think i could survive on a nude beach, if they don't allow dogs. smiling.

Joe,

God bless you, Joe. As a dog lover myself I can easily relate and truly appreciate what you did and how you feel about your animals - they're more than animals, they're part of your family. You may already be familiar with the information in the Protocol in the following Link, but hopefully it may provide something new to you that can provide you with some relief. In any case it's a concise compilation of very useful and effective information.

SAM IS CURED. Thank God.
WELTY I believe is cured. She had complications because of her cat. But, I believe she is cured. Like I said before, it's more difficult when you have pets. And, also, your immune system and age play a big role in this.

Joe--just curious if you can actually see the mites with the 60x pocket microscope, do they look like the ones you see on the scabies sites? I think it was you that said you have a the pocket scope.

Welty says hers are off white in color, but mine are black, and very very tiny. about 20 times smaller than a spec of dirt. yes, i see them with the pocketscope, but need an essential oil to get them moving. it is difficult to see them; with the 60x pocketsccope, it has to be focused just exactly right.

Joe, one more question--I have recently been finding tiny black specs in between fingers after sauna, but if the mites are so tiny, smaller than a spec of dirt this couldnt be mite poo--do you know anything about this? by the was this is after usually 2 showers--i try and shower before sauna as well as after.

there are many people on this forum who could see their mites as black specs. I don't know what to say. mine are tiny, and appear as black specs under my scope. bird mites are larger than sarcoptic mites.
