I'm currently self diagnosing a potential skin fungus that I believe I might have and I'm trying out bleach baths and anti-fungal cream used for athletes foot. It seems to be helping. I think you should be safe if you use one half cup of Clorox bleach for a full tub of warm water. The bleach should NOT burn your skin if you use a minimal amount. I wouldn't put more than a cup full into a full tub of water. If bleach is too scary for you then use Apple Cider Vinegar (I personally use one to two cups full). After you've soaked in the tub for about 15 minutes you should rinse off in the shower and pat yourself dry. You'll need a good non fragranced moisturize like Aveeno to cover your skin in.

In regards to Scabies. My family and I somehow contracted scabies late last year (2012), we believe the outbreak started sometime in the spring of 2012 but didn't become noticeable on all of us until late 2012. We all had to get treated, we believe it started with my oldest niece who is in elementary school, it spread to her younger sister, her parents, my dad, myself, and her newborn sister who was born in the fall of 2012. Scabies is very contagious! And if you think you have it you need to inform everyone you've come in contact with. Don't be embarrassed. Before we knew what it was, the doctors that my sister took her kids to all misdiagnosed the problem as being eczema, but we knew that wasn't it. Finally by chance at a doctors appointment a nurse recognized the problem on the infant and diagnosed it as Scabies. My sister and her husband along with their kids all received Permethrin Cream 5%. My dad had his physician prescribe himself the same ointment and because I didn't have medical insurance my dad was able to get his doctor to get me a tube as well. We were all instructed to rub the cream over our bodies and let it sit on our skin over night and then wash off in the morning. Then follow up with a second treatment in two weeks to make sure it was all gone. I personally did four treatments instead of two and I think the rest of my family did three each. We're all Scabies free now.

It's important to know that if you have Scabies that the cream you get from your doctor is only HALF of the treatment. You need to clean you're living environment and your car like you've never cleaned it before. All bedding and clothing need to be washed in hot water. All furry toys and stuffed animals should be bagged in trash bags to kill any mites until you're Scabies free. Never wear clothes more than once! Clean your bedding as much as possible. You need to buy those plastic covers typically used for lice to put over your pillows (under pillow case) and on your mattress. Vacuum your house and car and whip down everything. There is a lice killer spray that you should purchase. We used it to spray down our mattresses, car interior, jackets/coats that can't be washed ofter or ever, and our furniture. Scabies and Lice are two different things but they are both mites and the Lice spray can help with things you can't throw in a washer.

Like I mentioned above, Scabies is very contagious. If your child has it, you need to alert their teacher! Chances are your child could have passed it along to their classmates and friends. You need to alert any care takers of your children as well. My brother in-law parents were reluctant to get treated at first but they finally did. Once everyone was treated who came in contact with my nieces, the Scabies became history. Many people don't show signs that they have Scabies right away, so get treated just in case if you've been in contact with someone who has it or had it.

And for those saying a bleach bath is harmful. Think of it like this, it's just like swimming in a pool that has been treated with chlorine. The purpose of a bleach bath is to kill harmful bacteria on your skin. If you're going to take a bleach bath you need to do your research or ask your doctor on exactly how much you should apply to your bath water per gallon of water. NEVER put bleach directly on your skin because it's too strong. You should only take these kinds of baths in small amounts until whatever you're trying to accomplish is over with. If you're using it as a preventive or cosmetic purpose I wouldn't do a bleach bath often (no more than once or twice a month) because it can dry out your skin, irritate you, and kill GOOD bacteria that you skin needs. The right amounts of bleach added to your bath water will NEVER burn you. When you're taking bleach baths, just soak in the water. Don't scrub your skin, lightly rub the surface with a wash cloth only if needed. You can gently wash with a mild anti-bacteria soap in the shower before you soak in the bath or cleanse in the shower afterward. You should always do a simple water rinse in the shower after a bleach bath to make sure all the chemical has been removed. The same procedure you would use after swimming in a pool. Most importantly after doing this, lather your body up with a moisturizer that's meant for sensitive skin and that is fragrance free. Bleach baths supposedly help with the symptoms of eczema. I find that they work great as an exfoliate when wanting to remove dry, dead skin build up that can cause your skin to look dark....If you don't want to do a bleach bath, just don't do it. But don't knock others who have had success with it.

I've done the bleach bath twice now. I saw immediate results. I've been fighting scabies for a year now and they started to crust on my wrists. I've tried everything. Lindane, Permethrin, Ivermectin, Mitactin, Tea Tree oil, Sulfur, Neem and they all work but none of them kill the eggs so they come back again and again.
Hopefully the Bleach baths kill the eggs because the doctors won't help me anymore and I've run out of options. Benzyl Benzoate should be coming in the mail soon too. Looks like a someone who worked at a nursing home claims that's how they deal with scabies outbreaks, bleach baths. I'm on day two. So, I'll post back in a few days about how it's going.
Hey there Michelle... could you let us know how that worked for you? i just realized what the heck this rash is on my body.. and im over it... and you have been exceptionally clear about this... any news?

Well, atleast im not alone, but I've got you all best. I've been battling this for over 4 years. Seems like they go away but theyre not relay, I've have scores of perithrian cream treatments, tea tree oil, sulphur soap(helps a bit), its to the point where in not even itchy anymore. My bodies used to it. It's caused much depression. I also dont have the hundreds of dollars it take to threat myself, my son&the dog. I think one of my rats has it now too. Although I've heard this isn't transferable, it certainly seem like he has it. Some things I used for him were a mixture of coconut oil&turmeric. It help tremendously. Im going to do it for myself since it what I have.
It doesn't feel like I'll ever he able to get rid of them:(

Also helpful is baking soda mixed with whatever body wash(oatmeal is best),and I've heard of some people being able to get rid of them with Vaseline in between treatments. Like SLATHER the stuff on, after you wash of the treatment, and everyday inbetween.

does a bleach bath work? Ive read about it on Earth-clinic and read about ppl using it for eczema but it seems kinda harsh plus irritating to the lungs.i haven't tried that yet but Ive tried a lot of other things. I fear there is no cure, nothing seems to wipe these monsters out.

I don't know where I them from!! I'm a clean guy who loves taking hot showers. They feel amazing and also, I believe that body oder is very disrespectful. I don't know how I got scabies but I have them and I do know for a fact that bleach kills them UPON CONTACT! When first using bleach, you will have t a bad itch for a while but it will go away after a day or two. Its the reaction from those scratches from the itchies! NO NEED TO GO TO DOCS!, but if you already have insurance then by all means.
After research Iearned that you must NEVER WARE SAME CLOTHES WITH OUT WASH! I use a white wash cloth and pour bleach on it and the squert body wash on there and scrub all over my body, face too! Hair is fine, as long as you rinse repeatedly and use conditioner plus leave in for bleach strips hair of natural oils. Use white sheets so you can bleach them. Take showers everyday!!!!! I have dread locks btw, for those who have dreads and need to know about bleaching them. Its safer on dreads because the hair is bonded wich reduces damage from bleach dried hair (still use conditioner)

I wanted to tell you I have found a great cure for mites and scabies. It has been under our noses since 1890. It is Vicks and IcyHot. In combination, I think they are healing me. I cleaned the basement the other day and got scabies again. I had been using the Vicks, but after being bitten, I used the IcyHot and it helped so much. With 4 bites, 3 are almost all healed.
This product stuns them. There is an ingredient in Vicks which kills worms, like ringworm. I'm on my 3rd day and am pleased with the results so far. It does smell.
Tea tree oil also works great for scabies and skin infections or fungus

I use a quarter cup of bleach in my bath once a week. Have been doing so for over 10 years. Was recommended to me by my nutritionalist. Not for lice or anything. Cleanses you real well. Feel great after. And helps with peoole that sweat alot. My case. Also, if your ever ill, try 3 to 5 whole bottles of hydrogen peroxide in your bath. Youll get better twice as fast. Sucks infection out of your body. Hope this helps.

the way it was cured 100 years ago was tea tree oil, sulfur soap, and neem oil. Todays day and age we can also go buy powder chlorine, which kills anything with an exo skeleton, sprinkle it around the house including beds and couches and vacuum! Tea Tree Oil is also how they used to fix athlete foot, ezama (sp?), and many other skin disorders.

is powder chlorine safe on the lungs? Since we would need to breath it, if we spread it all over the house, is it safe to be breathing?

the bath is helping me very well you just dilute the water with soap and after that let your body dry and cool down then you add your cream then put lotion it doesnt harm your skin unless you put pure bleach on your skin with out diluting it its like a swimming pool i love that feeling when i get out . the pool wont do anything but bleach will.

While some skin can be sensitive to bleach, most are not. Use 3 cups of Bleach to a full normal sized tub of water, mix in 1/4 cup rubbing Alcohol and 1/4 cup baby oil into COLD , or as cold as you can stand it water.
It DOES NOT BURN unless you have open wounds then it may sting but any live scabies will die as the mixture enter the pores of your skin. soak from chin down 15 minutes until everything below your head has been under the water for at least 15 minutes. Then let the water out. Stand up and wash your hair normally in the shower, then using shampoo normally used to treat psoriasis *nutragina T-Gel* wash your hair leaving it in 15 minutes, using a scrubber, such as a rough dish scrubbing sponge scrub your entire body vigorously with the t-gel making sure to get around all of your nail and under them and in all of you creases and in between your fingers and toes and the bottom of your feet. Rinse in as cold of water as you can stand and then get out dry off...
Repeat this every night before bed, it takes a couple of hours but in 2 weeks you will be completely scabies free and will feel immediate relief of itching!
Make sure to lotion your skin well afterwards to keep it from drying out!
Good luck everyone!

Allison, bleach baths do not cure Scabies! If that were true there wouldn't be so many people suffering with Scabies on this forum. You shouldn't post such non-sense. A bleach bath can give a sufferer temporary relief from crawling, itching, biting and sneezing but it doesn't cure. I don't think you had Scabies in the first place.

By the way, if you are a doctor you should know better than to post such a false claim.

This is some of the worst advice ever given here.

First the "doctor" doesn't seem to understand that bleach causes chemical burns on all skin and then you have that on top of your scabies.
It's like saying most skin is not sensitive to paint remover. A lot of people have damaged their skin with far less than 3 cups. Also your skin absorbs the chlorine and that is toxic. The chlorine causes other body system problems.

Secondly the good "doctor" needs to get current in medical research and not assume that the medical problems of the 1950's are currently the same problems of 2013. The doctor needs to inform themselves about infections like bartonella that are passed on by mite infections and that exhibit very similar symptoms to "scabies". These are systemic diseases so treating just the skin is a waste of time.

There are a lot better ways to treat just the mite infection side of the problem. Take refined sugar out of your diet. Take an anti fungal like Olive leaf tincture and Moringa powder. Use Chanca Piedra and Anamu tincture to drive the mites out of you. Understand the herxheimer reaction so that when the above start to affect the underlying infections start to die you know how to deal with the reaction.

Doctor?! really?
