I just read this:

" People that use a public laundry mat may want to try spraying the machines with this type of spray to keep from being re-infested. If you hang your coat with other people’s coats you can easily be re-infested. Using credit-card swiping machines, co-workers computer keyboards, chairs in restaurants, shopping cart handles and even picking up a box of cereal from the grocery store shelf that has a mite on it will re-infest you. They can be anywhere.

You will need to be obsessed with this microscopic bug and keep them off of you and your pets so they will eventually die off."

Read lots about natural treatments on forum, I didn't want to go to doctor for meds, only as a last resort. Tried hot bath with 2 cups Himilayan salts and 500mls of colloidal silver (which I make myself and take internally every day too) got good results, but bugs migrated to hair and scalp, so next tried Salts with Hydrogen Peroxide in hot bath and barrier of clove oil (in almond oil) around neck to stop migration, not so successful. Today, back to hot bath in 2 cups of Him Salts and 500mls colloidal silver - fully submerged myself breathed through a straw! Itching stopped, another bath a few hours later, and will continue daily for the next 5 days. Washing bedding every day and clothes. But, feels like I have the better of the f***ers now. Salt seems to be the magical sure, I don't think it matters what kind, I just had Him Salts ready to hand in large quantities, but I have heard Sea Salt and Table Salt work too. Good luck everyone.:)

My cure is to shower or bathe with sulfur soap (Amazon), wash hair with great value dandruff shampoo (with sulfer in it) and afterward spray yourself with grapeseed oil, rinse lightly to remove excessive oil and air dry. Hot showers (the hotter the better) will give you some temporary releif. I also bought some shampoo called Defendex (do a google search for it). This shampoo is a flee and mange shampoo for dogs. It is also all natural. Mix one bottle of shampoo with a gallon of water. Put the mixture into a spray bottle and spray yourself and places where you sit. It is also a good idea to get some diatamacious earth and add about a quarter cup to the gallon of shampoo. You will need to constantly shake the sprayer to keep it mixed up. DE won't disolve.

Sprinkle DE on your mattress and cover the mattress with a sheet. It doesn't take a lot. You should also sprinkle some DE on your carpets before every vacuuming. Leave some DE around the legs of the bed. This will stop them from crawling into your bed from the floor.

Using this method has cured me. I have been itch free for over 2 months now. I feel sorry for any one that is still itchy.

I was using sulfur soap. I have switched to aloe gel. The aloe seems to work very well. The aloe kills the scabies it costs very little and is easy to use. I had a bad scabies rash on my legs but after using the aloe the rash is going away the scabies are dying. I slept well last night.

I caught what I believe to be this or bird mites on April 11th. Been following the information online and am getting less bites now.

I have spent about 300 dollars in laundry, windex,tea tree oil, vaseline,menthol ben gay cream,tea tree oil, msm, epsom salt,ammonia, hydrogen peroxide,garbage bags, alcohol in addition to the increase in cost keeping my humidity low by running the ac.

Threw out bed, couch dreamcatchers, bunch of clothes, 2 nice rugs and tore up carpeting in kitchen and living room.

Now sleeping on leaky air bed in living room. It has been 15 days and I am desperate to put this behind me. I have been unable to work for 2 weeks. I work from the home and my house is not suitable for work now.

Every day I wake up and attack this problem with vigor and spend every night up til 2 am researching how to stop this. I am habitual person and went to bed at 9-10 pm before this happened.

I am thinking of getting some iverctin or permethin just in case I need it. Any recommendations on the sulfur soap at the stores?

I have chronic lyme disease and life has been quite difficult since being dxed. Now I got invisible bugs biting me. This constant itching and rashes is making me crazy. I worry about it worsening due to my low wbc counts.

If you have Lyme disease you probably don't have scabies... Where's Fred when you need him? Jeez.

Look for Fred's posts about Bartonella and co-infections of Lyme. It mimics scabies. Unless you have a microscope and can ID them, I would treat for Morgellons.

i dont think exclusive perm cream is working after three applications, beginning to become skeptical of scab resistance to this treatment. i understand dead mites may still cause irritation for several weeks, but could new seemingly infected areas still occur after a successful treatment? Are essential oils, such as neem and teatree, significantly effective alternative? this infection is agony, depression from riddled skin, the paranoia of a crack head, and insomnia because of im paranoid my furnishings are sights of reinfection.

There is a posting from completely cured which helps with cleaning. Also, I have received some good advice from the people of Do your Own Pest control. I find you need ivermectin weekly for at least 3 weeks. Clove oil mixed with neem body cream helps with the itch. This is not easy

The itching and the "scabies sensation" is due to lyme. "Lyme dermatitis" mimic scabies so well that sometimes it is impossible to differentiate both ilnesses, except if you already hace a lyme diagnose. SO, you dont have scabies. It is lyme producing scbaies symptoms.

Honestly....
Quit trying to lead people down a road of other illnesses. You have no idea what this person has. You are just here to spread confusion about scabies. Stop it.

I have been reading numerous forum posts for the past 6 days, and I don't think I need to explain why. The one thing for sure that I have learned is that if you don't create a safe area in your home (a clean area), you are most likely going to be re-infested in the near future. We are planning on closing off the entire upstairs of our home for storage of clothing and non-essential items for a period of no shorter than 7 days.

Tempting but we are here to help each other for free. Taking our time away from washing, drying and scrubbing (haha) to heal each other with advices, kindness, understanding and whatever works. Everybody tries different measures to get rid of this horrible invasion and what matters most we find that in time of need there are strangers willing to help offering their help in our efforts to live normal life once again.
Have a heart! Your advice, your help would be greatly appreciated!
Ren I agree with you about helping each other for free...but I have a question...how are we newbies supposed to find the info on the net? Search goggle? Using Various question? The problem there is if you don't know the specific thing that you need to find out about, like how well does Dawn soap work or How well does Arid XX Dry deodorant work, or What strength of Alcohol should you use to spray down your home, etc, etc,...So most of us end up coming to a site like this and reading the forums...but here's the problem with that....it takes a very long time to read just one thread and what's even worse is that the majority of the people who post, don't even come near posting anything to do with the original question or statement...So how in the world do they expect anyone to get help from what they posted, when their post is soooooooo OFF TOPIC?????? I personally don' t have hours to read with all the cleaning I'm doing. Last night I was up to 3 am reading and then another hr just for my shower and hair washing process that I have to do 2xs a day...I't now 8am and I've had less than 5 hrs sleep. Loosing sleep will surly affect my already compromised immune system. Many people have stated that people with weak immune systems seem to be plagued more with these scabies and bird mites. I really don't understand why people take the time to post, but don't have the courtesy to start a new thread with their info so that more people can be helped by being able to find the info they post. For example the majority of the posts on this thread do not even come close to answering the original question....I for one will answer the question and hope other do so too because that info is valuable to some of us. Personally I can use the info to show others why is important to be willing to take the precautions and to help clean.....The reason I'm going to use...is that less time will end up being spent because it's cost effective for everyone in a house hold to cooperate and work to end this misery... IN the long run...heck even in the short run...time -money...to everyone I know. Since I didn't have my 1st easy attic until Dec. 22, 2013 and my 1st really bad attack until the day after Christmas, I only spent maybe $50.on OTC itch meds, which did no good...but so far in 2014, I'd have to guess I've spent well over $550.($250 of that was for a condo sized dryer) The rest when on 91% Isopropyl Alcohol (1.5 bottles a day to stay the out at $2.45 a bottle at Walmart..the cheapest price around here, 2 lg bottle of Dawn dish soap, 2 can's of AridxxDry, Olive Oil, Agran Oil, Grape seed oil, Orange Oil, Neem Mouthwash, Neem Oil, Peppermint Oil, Many rolls of paper towels, and I can't even begin to imagine how much my electric will will be for all the washing I've had to do, then there is the change in diet foods...luckily I was already eating mostly organic..So not too much additional cost for me, but for others, I can see they will spend $2-400 for a few weeks to get stocked up...others will have to go thru withdrawal from no sugar, no coffee (no caffeine) no alcohol (no beer, no wine, no drinking at all).Oh yes, then there's all the time it takes to read all these posts.How can you put a $ value on that.Yes all this is very very expensive...but what choice do you have? Little that I can see of at this point and I've not even seen a Dr.thanks to reading many posts..it's a waste of time. So I have now answer the question & thanks for reading my rant!

For those just starting to research please don't waste to much money on a variety of stuff. I have tried a numerous of different stuff and my money down the drain. Please read my next post on how I messed up and finally figured out how to get rid of the scabies. I was right by using it the first time around just didn't do it the right way. So I tried one last time and did it step by step and finally was able to get rid of them. I truly care for everyone on this site as it has touched me in many ways to share how I got rid of these monsters. For those of you that have spent a lot of money like me well I am sorry to say my method of how I got rid of them only costed a last total of about 30 dollars. But I am free of this and if I ever go through this again I will follow my this method in the future. But I pray not to experience this ever again!!!

I am here to help. I had scabies for seven months and I am now rid of scabies since November 2012. I tried a lot of things like tea tree oil, the script the Dr. gave me, DE food grade, cayenne powder, alcohol, and peroxide. I tried in all different time frames each. As I read story after story of real life problems with this mess. I cried all the time. I even got into arguments with my spouse because I had it and he didn't. Two of my four kids got it and it was just a nightmare not wanting to end. I tried figuring out how I failed on each and would just cry saying to myself Im going to have this for the rest of my life. So I decided to go back to the beginning and figure out once and for all how to get rid of this. I know plenty of people have tried other stuff and have concurred getting rid of the scabies now it was my turn. I have went through 8 tubes of the junk the Dr.s gave me. and about 80.00 on tea tree oil at first. Well here goes for those of you that want to finally be free of scabies and no more stress and back to normal. I know it sounds dumb because I tried it already and failed the first time but I went back to trying the tea tree oil for the last time. See back in the day tea tree oil is what they used and it worked. Now it was me figuring out how it worked. I had did it wrong. Please get a pen and a paper. Please note your total cost of buying tea tree oil depends on where you live. My last try of this only cost me about 26.00. You will need 3 6 oz. bottles You will need to add 2 table spoons of tea tree oil to all three bottles. Take one and put shampoo in it and shake well. Take the 2nd and put body wash of your choice I recommend something strong in scent as tea tree oil stinks. The 3rd bottle you will fill with baby oil or grape seed oil. This should last you for the 12 days that you have to do this for. I know it stinks but you will begin to notice the difference after the process. Please understand around the 6th to 7th day you will feel itching and it is due to the last bit of eggs that have hatched. Now I washed my hair everyday but that was due to me working two jobs. For the shampoo please use 3 days on 1 day off and then every other day. The body wash 2 times a day if you can. I recommend morning and night. Boil a nice size pot of water and take with you in the bathroom. Place the pot by the side of the tub, place the pure tea tree oil by the side of the tub as well. When taking a shower leave shampoo in your hair while you wash your body. Once you wash your body do not rinse stay back from the water for about 3 to 5 minutes then rinse. Yes you can use it on your face but I do recommend that you fan your face with your hand and open the shower curtain some as the smell and sting is strong due to our faces being sensitive. When you are done showering start to fill your tub with hot water while you sit in the tub. Gradually turn off the cold water to be able to tolerate to heat of the water. Lay in the tub while it is filling up. Take a table spoon of tea tree oil and stir it in the tub and soak for 15 to 20 minutes. If your water start to cool down add the pot of water gradually to the tub and stir or swish the water so it stays hot. When done dry your self and take the tea tree oil and baby oil mix and rub some all over your body. Try to get some in your scalp a little and make sure to get your feet and under your feet. Now for your clothes, towels, sheets etc. You will need to steam iron them as soon as they come out the dryer I know its nuts but I did it for 6 in my house hold and I work two jobs. You can do it you just have to say to your self you want to get rid of this. Your sheets on your bed wash and iron them every other day. Clean your house as you naturally would. Vacuum everyday rugs couch. But no extra stuff. As scabies likes to try to stay in clothes and blankets its easier to get to your skin so make sure to steam iron everything even clothes hanging in the closets of drawers

Please understand I am reposting my post on a lot of forums and it is only because it did me justice. My electric bill was out of this world as I was doing all the same things. Cleaning like never before walls floors knobs clothes bedding etc. I simply just had to stop and think of where I was failing. I finally figured it out. I bought one air mattress as I was the only one left in the house still suffering with the crap. I put no sheet on it just pure plastic air mattress and followed each step that I posted above and everyday I took a paper towel and poured alcohol on the paper towel and wiped the mattress down. My bed I stilled washed my sheets every other day just to get rid of what was on it from when I did sleep on it. But I am cured 100% and I am so happy to say I am still free of this monster since November of 2013.
