How do I get rid of the spots that the scabies left behind
Since: Feb 11
#2 Feb 21, 2011
I posted a new thread last night about my current experience with what appears to have been scabies.( Scabies - Cure?- My Life is Finally Coming Back)
I have noticed the most improvement to my skin was from staying regular with bleach baths (6-7 capfuls) about every other day and using a Pumice stone to scrub the old areas and past problem areas) The bleach and scrubbing really helps in removing that old layer of skin that looks like crap. Also I ran across Smile's PRID - drawing salve, put it in-between thumb and index finger (where I had re occurring bumps) it does wonders for drawing anything out left over and repairing your skin. Google Image search it, it comes in a small, orange, round container. I found it at Walmart over by lice treatments and cortisone section. It looks like tar and smells a little funky but it works! Wash/apply/cover with bandage. I am going to use it on my entire hands and just wear latex gloves tonight. Hope that helps :)

LoL ;D glad to help! When I was looking up reviews for PRID I thought it was awesome and interesting how it had this cult-like following. Been around since atleast the 1800's! Families have just been passing it down and keeping it alive through the years. Even though it's not popular in our day and age, im yielding much better results than the cheap half-assed popular new products of today!!! So many products out there now and many people sadly buy for the cover-art or brand instead of what is actually a great product!

I agree Jeannie/child of chriti You'd better stock pile that stuff, because the younger generation doesn't make it like they used to.

Very old and wrinkled/Math and more/Aaron
I corrected myself and even started a post stating that to you in hopes of avoiding your bullshit and insults that have consumed this board. You are a bad person and you have serious issues that belong on a "multiple-personality " board. I hope you grow a pair one day and face whatever problems you have in the real world because you will end up alone with no one who cares whether you live or die. Your going to be put in a nursing home one day and contract scabies and be left to sift through your own asshole responses for help. I'm done with this Itching chapter in my life and I'm not hanging around here to see what awful shit you say to the next person who is searching for help or trying to give it. Im cured! Viva la Bleach Bath!!!

4.2 of 5
I don't know how it works, I just know it Works!
Impressed with this product
Draws splinters out, helps to sooth boils and abrasions,
Years ago when I was young, my Mom would always use something called Black and White Ointment when ever we got a splinter.
I've never seen it since. When I met my wife she had this stuff called Smile's Prid Salve. Well, before long I had not only a splinter but one from treated wood. Which is 10 times worse, because of the chemicals.
I tried to get it out with no success, my wife handed me this Prid Salve. It looked like a dark brown wax but I smeared some on and put a bandage on it. The next morning I pulled the bandage and the splinter was still there, so I applied it again. That night I pulled the bandage off and on it was the splinter, I was impressed!
Now,again, I have Prid and a bandage on my finger, seems I got a sliver of metal while rummaging through my tool box. It feels a little better today and I am confident I will be good as new (okay maybe not new) by tomorrow because Prid works!
Prid will help to draw out debris and make it feel better.
This comes in a tiny 18 gram tin and doesn't look like much but a little goes a long way.
It's a wise investment to have in your medicine cabinet for those times when a Boo Boo happens!

About this product- I'm speechless. I have a congenital herpetic disease which results in painful, boil-like swellings that can show up anywhere on my body at any time. For years I've tried everything, from compresses to iodine to prescription treatments. Then I tried this. It's the first product that ever took the pain away, let alone shorten the duration of the pustules. I am now a permanent buyer.

PRID. I am allergic to tetanus shots and have used this for over 40 years.
I use it on infected bug bites, ingrown toenails, splinters, small folliscile infections,
and I even used it on a acne one time ,
and it soothed, drew it, and made it heal 50 times faster without scar.

This is a blast from my past! My dad was always pulling out the "black drawing salve"
when he had an especially deep splinter. And it always worked.

OMG@ George's response.....remind me to tell you the story of when I cut my finger half off with a knife..........
Rite Aid sells this..it's called "Draw Out Salve".
I have used it on ingrown nails that got infected, etc.
Didn't think about using it to "Draw out" a splinter.
Thanks for that!:)
GC's comment from Mar 5, 2008
I used to dig at them. That is until the nerve damage
and I lost some feeling,
which had me digging too deep and making a splinter a major cut...lol can you say ouchy? ;)
I usually dig it out with a knife.:o
Good stuff to have around.

I sent the Smile's info. to a friend and I wrote:
This reminded me of my childhood.(I'm 73)
My Mom always had a large tin of salve that she slathered on everything.:)
It was 'WATKINS'.
I have looked on their site, but I don't see it there.
She wrote this:
Cick on below for a list of Watkins products. The second one listed has many products and is via E-bay. They have a salve about half way down that is for splinters, among other things. There are many sites so pick and choose. All I did was go to www.bing.com and write in Watkins products and got this list. Hope this helps.

[On e-Bay: It's not mine]
Watkins Petro-Carbo Salve (4.37 oz.)
Brand New - Fresh Shipment - Factory Sealed
(Different prices, from:$7.49)
Relied upon for generations,
Petro-Carbo Salve is the historic healer for cuts, burns and more!
Petro-Carbo Salve is still a must for every home medicine cabinet and first-aid kit.
This versatile product is safe and effective for healing cuts
and burns and relieving sore, irritated skin.
Its active ingredient is phenol(carbolic acid), but it derives other benefits and its unique aroma from botanicals such as camphor, oil of spruce, and the tea tree relative cajeput,
Just one whiff brings back a flood of pleasant memories for many who remember Grandma lovingly applying it to skinned knees and burns.
Also works well for drawing out slivers.

You can also try chemical peels to eat thrugh the skin layers, giving you a new start. I bought a diamnd microdermabrasion machine to lift off the old layers as they will crust after chem treatment. Sulfur soap should be used religiously to get to the fresher layers of skin, then use the peel. Do it when you dont have to go outside for a few days as it will look bad at first if you have lots of mite debris built up. Anyway this all is working for me. I've also tried scalping off the more old spots. When I did this, muscular aches associated with the areas of these spots completely vanished. Had some radiating tingling sensations too along my shoulder blades that disappeared when I removed the spots. BUT this can leave a scar so try the chem peel first... Salycylic, glycolic, lactic acid. Start with salycylic acid 20% first. Between treatments use vitamin E slathered on to help nourish new skin and surface the old crustys. Shower with sulfur soap and scrub scrub scrub. Aso can try adding a lightening cream to vit. E between peels. If going scalpel, make sure to apply scar reducing cream as often as possibe.
Hope this helps you, I know what a drag these spots are. Went fom having beautiful neck and shoulders to ugly spots but what I'm doing is working and i look and feel better now. Dont get a microcrystal microderm machine, that has alumnum crystals you can ingest, potentially leading to Alzheimers. Make sure the tips are diamond coated!
