hi I'm 16 years old and scabies is literally taking over my life. I've become such a germaphobe with everything, I spray everything I touch on the daily with rubbing alcohol including door knobs, toilet seats, and the knobs in my bathtub. it's ridiculous, my sister has caught it and I'm almost positive my mom has too. I've read so much things online, I'm going to start the sea salt baths too and purchase tea tree lotion afterwards cause I know salt can be very dying. I've gotten my permithrin cream but since my visit to the hospital (3 days ago) it has reached my scalp, my nose, my eyes and ears. I'm trying to get the pill for these hard to reach places but I've recently seen another doctor who has refused to hand it to me. the bastard claimed it didn't exist and after showing him online, he then told me it's not effective and my insurance doesn't cover it. if the pill doesn't exist, how would he know that my insurance doesn't cover it? caught him in his own lie. anyways, if you're cured yourself with home remedies or whatever it may be, please let me know. I'm desperate. I go to school and can't touch anyone, people think I'm playing around. it's embarrassing, all I could tell them is that I'm sick. I'm afraid I've passed it to my boyfriend as well, I saw him itching at his waist yesterday (he's aware I have scabies). I'm so infatuated with getting rid of it, I haven't eaten in days cause I feel icky. it's everywhere and I just want a way out.
