I don't have bathing tub and dont have any possibility to get one. How should I do the bleach treatment in that case? Is it enough if I just apply the bleach/water mixture to my skin?

Hi , how do you know if you are cured? I applied permethrin 6x in the past 2 weeks and used sulphur soap and bleach soaks. Now my rashes which used to be bumps are red and flat and they hurt a bit and looks scabby. I still get itchy before sleeping though. Does this mean the mites are still there and im allergic to sulfur or is this part of the healing process? I also noticed new reddish heat rash looking marks on my neck after the perm treatment. Also how long does it take to fully heal? Its all over my body and i look like a burn victim

You have posted the same question all over this forum? You know way too much to be really suffering from scabies. You are a sales person here with an IP hider program. If you live in the phillipines, then I live in Hawaii.

If you have a virulent strain of scabies this may may take up to six months for a full and complete recovery. Go to the derm or an infectious disease specialist for proper treatment. Check the Center for Disease Control website and bring the data sheet with you. You will need both topicals and ivermectin to cure this. Keep your environment clean.
Or maybe you can teach the derm a few things while visiting their office. You sound really well versed. Are you sure you are not selling anything here on this forum?

Hahahhaaha! Yeah i am from manila but no im not selling anything. I have been reading the forums and thats where i got the idea of the bleach soaks, not sure if its working though because im still itchy and have red patchy marks all over. Ivermectin or stromectol unfortunately is not available here. Epsom salts cost about $250 per half a kilo (unbelievable) would anyone know if i can use regular sea salt?? I also read in one forum i should mix hydrogen peroxide with bathwater, does that have the same effect as using bleach?
I dont want to waste anymore money on my dermatologist, i learned more from these forums than from her.
And just so you know, english is our second language in manila so this is nothing new, its a bit weird that you had to check my ip though.:) but thanks for the help vss, appreciate it.:)

I told you to check out the I am Cured thread. It doesn't appear that you have done that. You keep repeating the same things over and over. No, hydrogen peroxide in your bath water will not do a thing. You should apply that full strength 3% to your skin. Use a small spray bottle. You seem hell bent on not doing anything I ask you to do. It's your choice. You said in another post that you are trying to help. Are you trying to help, or do you need help? Which would it be?
It's not a matter of learning things from your derm. The derm can precribe meds that you can't get otherwise. If you don't want to do the ivermectin and/or a good topical, then I guess you may be sh*t out of luck, eh? Did you understand that one? Being that english is your second language, eh?

Bleach baths or even spraying the skin with undiluted bleach is not, I repeat not a cure! As Augustmidwest states above, bleach baths provide temporary relief but that's it. You must begin a treatment regime that does cure. If you have had Scabies less than six months I suggest oral ivermectin with topical permethrin, preferably Advantix 2 Blue with 45% permethrin. If you have had Scabies loner than six months you should probably check out the oral homeopathic remedy using arsenicum album and sulphur, or the topical DMSO regime as described on other Topix Scabies Threads. Anything else is most likely a waste of time. The scabies mites of 2012 are extremely resistant and difficult to cure.
Are you actually recommending a homeopathy remedy to treat scabies? You are all the same person posting here. Arsenicum album is like drinking water. It does NOTHING for scabies.
This forum is bogus...

It's looney "bin" as in "Bin,a receptacle for storing a specified substance"

So that's where Hollywood's home is then where all the lunacy is stored.

Looney "bend" suggests a place where crazy gets stronger at a bend in a river or road and I don't think "hollywood" should be allowed to travel alone.

We have been battling scabies since for almost a year. We contracted it from my younger sister who would not go to the doctor and treat herself.
We have done over 30 treatments of permetherin, done neem oil, grapeseed oil, diamtocious (sp) earth, borax, arm and hammer, ripped out all of our carpet in our house and replaced it with hardwood floors, thrown away just about everything we own, tried lysol wipes...just about everything.
Finally, we decided to do a treatment of permetherin once a week for a month, we got an animal treatment for mange off of amazon called Du-Pont (73% sulphur) and mixed it with lotion, then applied it to our bodies over night just like permetherin and wash off and repeat that for a couple of weeks, then once every two days. We have been doing bleach baths mixed with 99.5% sulphur. Mind you, we vacuum daily, mop, wipe every surface, have zippered mattress covers on mattresses and box springs, do laundry on the hottest setting every day and don't wear anything more than once. We are finally seeing the end. We also take benadryl to help our bodies out.
I hope you all recover from this horrid Seven Year Itch. It is indeed a bitch.

We have been scabies free for almost two months. Keep your skin mosturized.
And yes, doctors suck about helping you get rid of this. They think one tube of permetherin over night cures you. We went to 6 doctors until we got help.

Ivermectin is a wormer for horses, sheep cattle. It's cheap. Available from any farm supply place. Or, I'd think, from any vet. Used it for hundreds of lambs over 30 years of farming. It's quite safe. So unfortunately scabies are developing resistance. Dose: 200-300 mg to every kg of your weight. It's on the container. Check. I don't deal or remember well in metric.
