I'd think that if monistat cures it then it is just plane simple thrush (yeast infection) not scabies. Otherwise anyone could use monistat as topical?!
Thrush can be easily a secondary symptom caused by stress due to scabies.

Does anyone know if you can get head lice from scabies?(As in head lice developing as a condition secondary to having scabies) I am fighting a bad case of scabies that I DID contract from my dog, contrary to what some literature says, and when I finally went to the doc. to get Permethrin, he jumped back from me when I said my scalp itched, too, and, after looking at my scalp, declared that I had lice, retreating and instantly washing his hands as though I were on fire. He asked if I'd been "staying in any homeless shelters or anything"... which was ridiculous and totally politically incorrect. I was pretty astounded at the coexistence of the two, though, as I can't find anything in the literature that says that they are related or that one leads to the other (that scabies could lead to head lice, eventually, if left untreated...I was scratching for months, and knew my dog had it and was trying to treat her for it, but for sooo long, I believed the old lie that "scabies can't be transferred to humans and if they ever do, they can't live on a human host for more than a few hours..."- which is SUCH a joke!!!))...'Anyone out there know anything on this?

Did you and your dog get a positive diagnosis via scraping? Just wondering why the doc thought it was lice? Maybe you don't have scabies but it's a differect parasite infesting both you and your dog? Is your dog being treated?

Scabies won't cause lice but it's possible the two parasites could co-exist. Hopefully it's not very common. Someone would really have to be in the wrong place at the right time.

Normally scabies don't however bird mites possibly can. Here is a link for more information.

http://www.birdmites.org/FAQ.html

Should definatly go to a dermatologist to get skin tests done to determine what it is as permetherin seems not to work with bird mites.

I suffer from M E and have very little immunity.
The trouble is I have had scabies for nearly three months on the hands and foot alo the face, in and around the eyes and inside the nose. I have been using tea tree oil on my body can you anyone tell me what to use in my nose.

scabies and other parasites are attracted to fungus which is why monistat might work for some cases. Eat a lot of garlic and raw cabbage which will get rid of fungus and parasites and also kills viruses. There is a guy on the internet who claims peroxide and a small amount of borax mixed in and rubbed on the skin will get rid of any mange type parasite and even lyme disease. Here is the website.

I know how you feel...it's really sucks. I'm getting my treatment right now as of typing to you now. My doctor have prescribed me Permethrin 5% cream and I applied my body from the neck down ( if you don't get itch on the head) otherwise do from head to bottom of your feet. My advice to you is before the treatment DO NOT SCRATCH yourself because the more you scratch the MORE PAINFUL it is right when you applied the cream on .... then leave it on your body for 14 hours . REMEMBER after put on the cream wear clean clothing and have fresh sheets and blanket DO NOT USE the old bedding and blanket because they have mites in them and you don't want them crawling back into you. Oh ya, I almost forgot the most important fact that us human could never get the mites from our pets because we have different mites than our pets , our mites need a human host to survive NOT DOGS,OR CAT, or other pets. I got that fact from asking my doctor and found them from the internet I asked my doctore because I have cats and dogs and like you I thought that my dogs and cats might have the mites on them and got me infected...hehe silly me... and then I ask can I infect my animals by holding them ? and she said no. So that's a good thing to know right. And also, when you first got the scabies it doesn't show any signs of itchyness at all this talking about 2-6 weeks pior to your first itchynes is when you first encounter someone infected with scabies. Then it takes 2-6 weeks for scabies to show by the signs of hella itchy. Well good luck to you !=)
sarcoptic mange Mite that usualy infest dogs...
Mite infections on humans are self-limiting (i.e., they go away on their own) as the mite is not able to complete its life cycle on the "wrong" host. However, the condition is extremely itchy while it lasts. The mites are most active where skin is warm, such as in bed and where clothing is snug.Theres more about this topic on th other forum Post-Scabies Treatment Eczema u can gogle (sarcoptic mange mite, human dog)

WOMEN!!!!!!!!!!
i know this sounds crazy and im going to be very graphic .
but when you understand and have these symptoms then it dont sound so bad to you ..
before i used the soap baths .i would always feel things like they were crawling around my ass and vagina area .
when something comes to me and i know it helped i just come right on and say it ..
back to the statement ..
i used to feel these things so bad and thought they were coming and going inside of me ..
aftetr i took the soaks .i would later feel some mild itching around my vaginal area and backend and it was so annoying .
heres what i did ..,,,
everytime i would feel one small crawl in that area .i kept a tube of preperation h on the sink
i would put some on my fingers and rub the crap out of my self down below .the soap seems to make them come to the surface of your skin and then you can start rubbing them out .just rub and look and see
what comes out of your skin but very easily for once .
cut back your fingernails because you dont want to get an infection .but im telling you .i got millions off me and i did that until i saw nothing .it was almost like tiny little black gravel all over my hands .just keep doing that and wipe them off ..once you get those things out of your skin it helps .
its also best not to use dry toilet paper .especially if its out in the open .im hooked on baby wipes now in a box and will never convert back to tissue .there are several things you can do to make the process quicker .the sooner you get symptom free the better .nothing is easy and this sure wasnt .
whats hard is they get deep within the skin and most things dont bother them but the arm & hammer does .where ever you feel them thats where you need to rub until you roll something out .
i had them so bad ladies my feet would swell. couldnt hardly walk on them because they were so sore .
i had pressure in my head and while sitting on the computer i actually used to feel them coming out of my tear ducts.i had a cysts and was sceduled to see a doc but they ate it all away..
i really dont think they are inside the vagina but lay on and under the surface of fragile skin .and when they move its like you dont know if they are coming or going .but work at the spots around that area ..you will be amazed at whats bugging you ...i went so long with out sleep i was hallucinating .i got on my knees in the emergency room one night and wrapped my arms around the dr and begged him to admit me just so i could rest .my eyes felt like sandpits .i kept hemmoriods. i was scared of my shoes,my pants,my hairbrush,i felt as if they knew to get in my panty drawer because they knew id be putting them on .i had open holes in my flesh .i know exactly where you fear they are in side of you .i really think they just wonder around the soft parts of your flesh but i think a person can pack them for so long they can inbed even deeper .they know how to survive everything your doing and i honestly think they learn your routine .but i promise you this much .that arm&hammer gave me life .it made me smile again ,it made me get to hug and kiss on my grandbaby,it let me go visit my sick father before he passes .it has changed my life .
some of you who are sufferering really bad you really need to try this and try to get somplace towards recovery .six dollars is nothing compared to what youve been doing and not so hard on you either .
sorry about the long post but i am symptom free and we all need to get back to that ..im trying to help all i can because my heart is aching for you .i wish i could scream it from the roof tops .the world needs to know about this mess .

i used the permethrin cream, and it cleared mine up. the day after i applied the cream, i took a shower to wash it off, and i haven't had to scratch since. get the cream and the pills, take as needed, apply as needed..follow up, and you should be fine. unless you have CRUSTED scabies. in that case..idk what to tell you.

I can't believe I got infested with scabies. I want this to go away like now, I'm so afraid of getting them in my eyes and or ears, also on my head and in my vagina... As of right now I've got them all over my legs.. I did the permitherin treatment however I didn't place too much attention to my vagina,.. Now I'm wondering if I should do the whole treatment over or if I can just put this cream on that area and wash it off in the morning?

No problem putting the cream in that area, especially if you are feeling activity there.

There is a white petroleum sterile type of "eye vaseline" you can get for eyes. It can go around the eyes and even in there. It seemed to help my eyes when they were dry and the corners when I felt like mites were in and around them. I put it on Lashes too..
