Oh, I would think that you would be concerned about giving this to your newborn, and NOT BE SO CONCERNED ABOUT HOSPITAL PERSONNEL AND STUDENTS.
Jeannie, straighten up on your postings, WOMAN.

Hi. I have been at war with these wonderful companions for about 6 years. I have some real good tips. take 2 cups of coconut oil and mix with 30 ml. of clove oil and thicken with Diatomaceous earth. put all over your body including your head for 20 min. then wash with a sulfur soap. these bugs get active after you eat and especially at night so the best time to do this is the evening. The young hatch and this is the best time to get them. If you are living with other people and they don't seem to have a problem, they have a problem. They need to get on board and do the treatment with you. They can have them and not know it and pass it back to you. I found that if I take a hot hair blower to the spots after i eat this tends to stop them. Salt baths with clove oil is also very helpful. I have seen some in my sink and believe me they are hard to wash off. they stick real well to every thing. They live in the hair follicles.

I am soo sorry you have suffered so much/so long w this! have you considered that what you have been dealing w may actually be a fungal infection or something and not scabies? much of what i have read that you find best relief w, things that people have found to help scabies, but also so happen to be great things that help w fungal infections.. your description sounds spot on being caused by actually fungi and not so much scabies.. i have posted further info on thread, crawling sensations caused by scabies or infections..
i assure you, i am not selling anything on that thread, or trying to! lol, no secret affiliations either! i am an RN, just trying to get my family healthy again! I would recommend you to at least read, and consider the possibility that it may be something other than scabies!

Biggest hurdle for people is to find out what exactly they are dealing with! many of these types of infections mimic scabies symptoms, tho i think people w these infections find out quickly the actual medical treatment for scabies don't help them, but make much worse..

JUST FOUND A CURE TO KILL BIRD MITES..NATURALLY...
WHITE VINEGAR.....FULL STRENGTH...
My sister got them from a patient when she worked at parkland when she picked up the patient’s gown to put into the hamper.
My sister suffered 5 years and poisoned herself horribly with chemicals trying to get rid of them.
She and her 25 year old son became recluses trying not to give them to anyone else.
She has horrible purple scars all over her.
We tried to get the University of Texas to find a way to cure them but their response was she needed a psychiatrist, that mites didn’t bore, and bird mites didn’t come on humans..
Well now we know years later….they do…
and they do bore….
and since chickens are sprayed each week, these things have mutated and become immune to the spray, and they now bore.
Well she found just a few days ago….a cure…
Someone had suggested she use white vinegar for another type of bug…and when she sprayed white vinegar on them, she found it killed the mites within 30 minutes!!!
She sprayed her bedding and it killed them in about 30 minutes.
She sprayed her couches and then carpet and it killed the mites.
She sprayed her car and it killed them in her car.
She then thought about herself, so she sprayed full strength on her leg where they bored into her skin.
Where she had sprayed, it killed them in about 30 minutes.
She sprayed another place and it killed them.
EVEN WHERE THEY WERE BORED INTO HER SKIN WHERE THESE LITTLE MOUNDS UNDER THE SKIN WERE.
She sprayed her whole body, and it killed them.
This woman has lost everything!!! so much money spent to kill these horrible monsters over the past 5 years.
Now she can have a life!!!
The Romans used VINEGAR to clean and disinfect everything.
They even put it on wounds, and drank some in water to kill intestinal parasites, washed their hair with it to make it shiny and smooth.
So many uses they used, plus so many years other countries used VINEGAR for so much.
WE GREW UP USING VINEGAR AND SALT WHEN WE DYED THINGS TO SEAL THE COLOR INTO THE CLOTH OR ITEM.
My mother used it with honey for arthritis and kidney pains.
God created everything to help us, the old standby healthy things.
Now this world wide plague has a cure.
spray your yard, patio, whole house around it, and inside and out.
SPRAY ANY BIRD HOUSE YOU HAVE AROUND YOUR HOUSE,
Clean inside of drawers and refrigerator.
Bird mites go to heat, AND LIKE FIRE ANTS, THEY GO TO THE ELECTRICAL WIRES, BECAUSE THAT FEQUENCY ATTRACTS THEM, so they will have gone to your bedrooms, as well as kitchen areas, TV areas, and any electrical machine that is warmer than the rest of the areas.
OUTSIDE THEY WILL GO TO AIR CONDITIONERS AND POOL PUMPS.
I HAVE HAD FIRE ANTS BUILD NESTS UP AND AROUND ELECTRICAL ITEMS AND EAT WIRES THROUGH ON MY POOL PUMP AS WELL AS MY AIR CONDITIONERS.
The clear vinegar smell goes away soon, so use it full strength, the dark brown vinegar can stain and the smell stays a long time.
HEY GUYS!!!!
THIS IS A THOUGHT….TRY THAT VINEGAR ON FIRE ANTS TOO!!!
IT MIGHT WORK!!!
Try it in your hair every 2 or 3 days.

This is so true. It you don't feel them, they are living on your hairs. So dye it or use Nair. If you dye your hair make sure you have something safe enough to use often and the time can be shorten to three to five minutes. Then twice a week use vinegar in your hair. Leave the vinegar in for 15m or longer.

Two other types of soap you may want to try are Original Sulfur Soap and the newer version, SAL3, both at SulfurSoap.com . Both are 10% sulfur, but the SAL3 also is 3% salicylic acid. The sulfur kills surface mites and the salicylic acid is added for its skin friendly properties, making it useful for acne, psoriasis, and dandruff as well. It lathers up extremely well for use as a shampoo. One other soap you might try is a colloidal silver soap; colloidal silver is an effective natural antiseptic. You can purchase it at UtopiaSilver .com - it's their Utopia Natural Silver Aloe Skin Care Bar. It makes a good followup to the sulfur soap as the sulfur tends to dry out the skin, but the silver aloe bar in addition to being a good antiseptic is a good moisturizer and has a pleasant lavender vanilla scent. Some people use the Original Sulfur Soap as a basic hand soap and spot treatment and the SAL3 and the colloidal silver soap in the bath/shower.
Thanks for the tip about SulfurSoap.com I ordered the SAL3 12 pack , and on the front page they have a Mite Pack, which I ordered too. It has the Mitesil sulfur cream.

Note that SulfurSoap.com now also carries an excellent sulfur ointment, which has become a difficult to find item. At their home page see the tool bar at the top of the page for the ointment. Also here is a typo correction for the UtopiaSilver.com Link.

So many postings suggesting sulfur soap or sulfur ointment and not a single post claiming they are cured by it.

Same for bleach baths, tea tree oil, clove oil, vinegar or lemon juice. People, what is it going to take to convince you that topical stuff does not reach the mites deep in the burrows of your skin?

And oral ivermectin at any dose doesn't seem to be strong enough where you need it to have enough effect.

The doctors are clueless, the trolls want you to be confused and to suffer, and the spammers want to sell you worthless crap.

When you are tired of the B.S. and ready to take serious action to be free of these pests I urge you to look at Ivomec. I started using it one month ago and all my symptoms are gone. For all I know I could be cured. But I'm not taking any chances and will continue another month. I never thought I'd be so desperate to be doing this but common sense brought me here, and it's not easy, but for the first time in two years I am symptom free.

Tea tree oil and vodka mix 50/50.
Put it in a speay bottle and spray head to toe.
Spray your hair 20 minutes before shampooing.
A good toner for your face.

I'm confused - Ivomec is ivermectin -- we are using that now (four of us) for several months - slowly getting better (I hope) how long and how much are you taking?

Reality check: oral or topical are no where near as effective as injectable. This is very important. Dosing for oral and injectable is based on your weight. Your body does not process oral the same as injectable. Your body is not wired to distribute oral equally to your limbs the same as injectable. The difference between oral and injectable is significant and mind blowing when you compare the two. Injectable brings about immediate and thorough die off the oral simply does not do. Injectable is always more effective. Ask any doctor or medical scientist. I am symptom free and continue to be. The orals and topicals never accomplished that. Private message me if you want to discuss this further. The trolls have managed to delete entire threads to silence successes of past posters.

Hair is vanity. Skin mites are a scourge. There is nothing I would not do to kill all mites. I shaved my head (and coarse body hair) to cure my skin, and it was the only thing that worked.

I have sympathy, especially for women who love their hair, but for me, it was the only way to cure my scalp, and it works.
