I got rid of mine and my husbands by getting a compounding pharmacy to make a sulfur and patrolium jelly compound 10-1 ratio 10 patrolium/1sulfur. Worked quickly and I think it's safe during pregnancy.

I'm pregnant and have a 22 month old. I've researched researched researched. I'm afraid to try things not knowing what will and won't hurt during pregnancy. But I've tried little things and will say- I'm not- and haven't been miserable like alot of ppl say. So what I'm doing must control just not eliminate. Basically- I only have them on my hands. Rarely ill feel one bite on my leg or foot.(Took my son to the dr. She said it was a rash....then ummmm please explain mine then dr? And she said oh-it's different and pushed us on our way.) Soooo..my remedies:.I put BRAGGS apple cidar vinegar in the bath (for both of us. Even washed my hair with it occasionally.) I wash my hands with ACV sometimes also. I wash my clothes with regular detergent and add a cup of Borax (becareful not to inhale.)(I honestly think borax is the most important thing..)(Ive read borax baths can kill or help enormously, but i wont try while pregnant. Also bleach baths.) While clothes are waited to be laundered (accumulating) I put them in a plastic bag (they say in 3 days it suffocates them) Also what I want to know more about safety and pregnancy- have researched but can't get a complete conclusion...is Clove Oil. I mix a few drops of clove oil with a teaspoon of Pure coconut oil in a small bottle...and use a Qtip to "spot treat" my hands. If I weren't pregnant- I'd probably slather it on...because this is also what I believe is truly controlling them.(The bites don't itch and are not red..even basically disappear by morning.) As for my son..I have only used the clove oil a couple times when he seemed to be spreading and he was Itching badly. Again- spot treated. Mostly for him- its the ACV bath and cover him with petroleum jelly (which I've read sufficates) I don't go crazy cleaning the house..I do change my bed sheets every couple days and try not to re-wear anything before washing. So again...they are controlled. Just not gone. I went to the drug store the other day to request a sulfur soap or ointment (mix with petroleum jelly) but the pharmacist said no she wouldn't give since I was Prego.(Even tho I read this is the safest alternative for pregnant women.) Sighhhh...so anyway. I don't want the new baby to get it. But I don't know how to safely kill completely.(I don't really want to try the Permethin because I read over and over that it hasn't worked for so many.) Anyway- anyone add more solutions ideas please but these are my little things. It's sounds like alot...but you bathe anyway- and put lotion on after, and wash clothes anyway..so it's just a matter adding a special touch. Good Luck. I look forward to hearing solutions. Mostly looking for someone who successfully killed the mites during pregnancy...and still had a 100% healthy baby.

Oh and after I bathe I cover myself face to toes with either Pure Coconut Oil or Pure African Shea Butter. (Order online or could buy at whole foods or a natural food/beauty store.) Not a lotion types. This is heavy. Anyway- not sure if this is helping control but its part of the regimine and it's great for skin and preg skin. So I continue it.

You must see a "Infectious Disease Specialist" right now! Stop searching for answers from a bunch of strangers, many who are mentally ill post here. Do the right thing for your baby. I am a mother and a grandmother, please don't wait until your baby is born. You are contagious!

She's doing fine. She doesn't need to see a Infectious Disease Specialist. Scabies is easy to cure, you moron.
She just told you she is using sulphur and permethrin. It doesn't take much more than that, b*tchkitten.

Thanks but I doubt I have the money to go see one. I've found a couple and none accept Medicaid. I've seen a couple doctoprobably d my obgyn, they all say permetherin cream. And my ob won't prescribe anymore, unless it gets worse, he thinks I'm scabie free. I'm going to try to see a dermotoligist soon, it's just hard with my insurance. My mom has been seeing one but it's the same thing, permetherin cream. he told her he doesnt see no more scabies, but idk. Thank you I will call and find out how much it costs for a appointment I hope it's not too much

Are you cured? If so, what did you use? I used to be real itchy, now it's just sometimes, and there's relief. I can sleep at night, and it doesn't seem to be spreading like it was before. Sulfur has really helped but dried out my skin badly. So I'm letting my skin heal for some days

I doubt they will see you without insurance. A dermatologist will not do the tests you need to determine your best course of treatment. Permethrin and sulfur are very weak as cures go. In most cases it's not enough to cure. But honestly I wouldn't even use Permethrin as a expected mother. It's a neuro toxin, a poison, that your body is absorbing and that's why I urge you to seek a doctor who really understands what your options are. That would be a infectious disease doctor. Call them and tell them you are expecting a baby and do what you can to be seen. VSS is not a credible source for information. I am giving you sound advice.

Do atleast 2 treatments. I don't think one will work at all. I did 3. I'm currently 7 months pregnant and pretty sure they are gone. Just make sure you wash everything in hot water and dry on hot. Try to disinfect as much you can especially where you are around the most. The itch won't go away for another 3-4 weeks so be patient. You can do it before your baby comes

I had scabies a year ago and So did a woman i lived with who was pregnant. We all got rid of it without using any chemicals, we used flowers of Sulfur, it is a powderd precipitated version of sulfur, you need to dilute this in oil to a 10% solution, about a teaspoon per cup of oil, then apply once a day for about 5 days. You need to dry everything in the dryer you come into contact with for at least an hour. But keep in mind the symptoms do not go away after the mites are dead, the itching is because of an allergic reaction to the feces, which your body takes a while to get rid of even after they are dead.

Hello, I'm currently 2 months pregnant and with a horrible itch ! I was diagnosed with scabies back in December and did 2 perm treatments! By January I was still feeling a little itchy but figured the itch would take 4 weeks to go away. I also found out I was pregnant in January, so now almost February the itch came back 10x, before it was only my legs now it's all over, legs, arms, back, tummy ! And it's unbearable, doctors don't even know what to say, they think it's just my hormones but I can sense something else! I have a dermatologist appt next week but I'm just afraid he will tell me to take perm again which apparently didn't work! Help, even if just sympathy words, I feel everyone who has gone through this ! Thank you for reading!

I just so happen to be reading the forum today and saw your advice. Thank you. My baby is 8 months now and beautiful. He doesn't have 3 eyes like I feared. Anyway, I still have scabies; it is almost 2 years now. I'm using sulfur that seems to be doing nothing but destroying my skin and taking 12m Iver from Mexico which hasn't helped yet. I was eaten alive last night even though I was covered in sulfur by a blanket that I washed for 2 hours in extremely hot water and borax. I've kept things at bay for quite a while but now things seem to be out of control. I just spent the last two hours reading everything on the bird forum. My 3 babies who have not been infected since the first treatment of Perm are now complaining of the crawlies and itchies. I feel so lost and beaten.
My two boys got it and Iam pregnant so I searched natural remedies and the best thing is to use tea tree oil plus neem oil apply directly on the spots twice daily . The mite hate the smell on neem oil and tea tree oil so you will find improvement if you apply twice daily plus bath daily on Epson salt . Put drops of tea tree oil all around your house, bedding a the smell works as a natural pesticide. It can heal skin cancer so it will heal your scabies.
Best of all clear your mind cause your mind have the power to distroy the mites or you. Be strong and take control of it. Been there done that . It works.
Best of luck.
