Clove oil. It works. It's not a gimmick. It's not a myth. It works, just like the Australian studies say it does. Clove oil, 100% Clove Oil diluted with lotion and dabbed on the spots, and then the Clove oil lotion slathered all over your body. Keep it up. It works. I know. It works. Clove oil kills mites on contact within 15 minutes. Also wash your sheets and bedding and clothes in 1/2 cup of Twenty Mule Team Borax along with your regular detergent, and dry them on hot, thoroughly. Then put 2 Tablespoons of Twenty Mule Team Borax in 16 oz of a mix of 1 part 3% hydrogen peroxide and 2 parts water and dab the mixture on the spots. After that wet that Borax/hydrogen peroxide mixture all over the rest of your body from the neck down. Let it air dry. Do not towel dry it off.(Take a hair dryer in the bathroom with you and dry off with it so you don't stand there dripping wet and freezing.)

This all works. And especially the Clove Oil. It WORKS! YES!! YES IT DOES!

I had scabies for nearly 3 mths & when 4 treatments of permethrin, washing everything every day & hoovering often didn't work, I tried a salt scrub and it worked! I mixed normal table salt with a small amount of water to make a thick paste then after soaking in a hot bath (to open pores) I scrubbed it in all over (boy did it sting!) & left it for 5-10mins before rinsing with very hot water. I only moisturised my face after & left the rest of my skin to dry out. I swear I didn't itch atall that night so I repeated it the following eve b4 bed time & I am so happy to be free of these horrible invaders. I am now working on my scars with olive oil (app rich in vit e & cheaper then shop bought products). Good luck to anyone that has this but u can beat it!

I'm going to try Lysol. I have used this to treat athletes foot and it works great. I will apply it like bug spray for mosquitos and it kills in 30 seconds.... don't know about killing the eggs though... wish me luck!

the bumps after the perme cream are normal. It got worse for me too, I got itchier but it's because perme kills anything that hasn't surfaced yet. it gets everything. so new bumps are bound to surface. as for the bleach baths, I'm not sure that's a great idea. try bathing in sea salt water instead. fill the tub with hot water, as hot as you could handle and add 500g of sea salt. bathe for 20 minutes and when you're done, AIR DRY. I recommend purchasing tea tree lotion because salt can be very dying. I also heard tea tree can help kill scabies as well. DO THIS FOR 4 DAYS. and wash your bedding & bathtub everyday as well.

Hi, just wanted t share my story of this terrible condition. I found I had it after many weeks of not knowing what it was as soon as I found out what it was I did everything you told to do.
1: lyclear cream x 8 applications (didn't work)
2: dermac-m x2 applications (made it worse)
3: sudacream (helped and soothed)
4: washed washed and washed everything again and again
5: tea tree oil, did nothing

The only thing that I found worked effectively was bleach baths (house hold bleach) I know people will advise against this but you have no idea how desperate I was, I had this stuff in my eyes, my legs , arms were raw with the rash it had a serious effect on my life I couldn't go out or do any of the things I used to do so out of pure desperation I tried bleach baths. None of this half a cup rubbish I went with half a bottle every day for a week. It dried my skin out but the infection stopped spreading and started to fade very quickly, within a few days. I have continued to wash / boil and sterilise everything and I'm bathing daily in bleach x 5 days now but the fact I can see it going is worth everything.

The method that worked for me with what I feel was a very bad infection was as follows ....

Daily hot bath with half a ltr of house hold bleach, bath water as hot as possible. Used a scrubbing brush to scrub my skin with neat beech to make sure I was getting everywhere. Soaked in the bath for half an hour each time.

Dripped dry and let myself cool down, once cool applied sudocream to any rash areas. Clean clothes daily, clothes that had been washed on a hot wash and then tumble dried on a hot setting.

Just as an extra I sprayed my car and soft furnishing with disinfectant spray, steam cleaned my carpets / beds and washed anything that would go in the washing machine..

Like many of you I have no idea how this happened but the effect on me and my life was terrible so the relief I had when I found something that worked for me was amazing.

I seriously hope you all find what works for you and are able to get rid of this terrible thing and get back to a normal life.

You dilute it. 2 cups to bath water or a 4 tablespoons to a gallon of water and use a washcloth and wash skin daily if you do not want to soak in bathtub everyday. The males are on the surface, so kill them daily. The females are under the skin laying eggs.

Just a little up-date:

I went to my GP yesterday, explained the situation I had been in and what I had done to get rid of it (bleach baths) fully expected him to lecture me on how bad this was, he didn't he just said that as it had clearly worked 'for me' then it was clearly the right thing to do. Although I feel I have managed to get rid of it I explained my worries about it coming back and said I would carry on with the baths until the spots had gone, he said that he thought I had probably used enough bleach to kill a small elephant but that he understood my anxiety.

He wasn't able to completely confirm that I had had scabies as I had been treating it with bleach for 4 days before I was able to se him but he gave me some steroid cream to make sure. I will carry on with the bleach baths as it's worked so we'll and I really couldn't stand to go through that feeling of having scabies again.

I'm in no way suggesting that everyone should dive into a boiling bath of bleach to get rid of this, I am very well aware that's it's not good for your skin but being covered in scabies wasn't good for my mental health or my skin, all I can say is that in my case I found, as extreme as it was, it worked and in just over 5 days I can see that the rash has almost gone and I am starting to relax. I will never relax in terms of hygiene I really do think that this experience has and will affect me for many years to. come, I was already slightly OCD about cleaning but this has just heightened that feeling.

Very good luck everyone with your battle with this terrible thing, I hope you all find very quick relief and go on to have scabies free amazing lives :)

Yes I have tried it, you are recommending a non-cure. One of many I wasted time and money on that resulted in grief. I'd rather be called rude than a liar! You are helping no one here.

it's a great idea if you want the beastly parasites to migrate to your eyes, ears, scalp, nape, and vagina (guys, you're not completely off the hook, they will hide in the buttocks area too).

Take a warm bath with 2 cups epsom salt. Take a cold shower and wash with tea tree oil soap. Eat plenty of garlic. Good Luck.

I love home remedies that actually work! Just wanted to share this info on how to clear up rashes from scabies, poison ivy, bee stings, insect bites, jelly fish stings, & even eczema (although for eczema only ˝ cup bleach per bathtub is used; see nationaleczema.org click on “eczema”,“treatments”,“bathing ”,“types of baths”,“bleach bath” for details).

This treatment is as simple as pouring a cup of BLEACH into a full bathtub of warm water, soaking for 10 minutes, showering or rinsing off with fresh water, and applying coconut oil or tea tree oil to the skin to prevent dryness & heal the rash. Rinsing off is an important step as bleach can irritate the skin.(For scabies; repeat twice a day until the mites are gone.) Results are almost IMMEDIATE! Overnight, you will see the rash drying up. This treatment is safe for toddlers. Swimming in a chlorinated pool is another way to do this!

I have been battling what i thought was mrsa, but after reading the blog, it might be scabies. I have been taking bleach baths 2-3 times a week for a couple weeks, and plan on doing it forever. I started with a 1/2 cup of bleach in a full bath. I saw results immediately. I have now stepped it up to 1 1/2 cups of bleach in a full bath. The most important thing is that you stay moisturized. After EVERY bleach bath, make sure you use a medicated lotion (otc), or, I use a mixture of olive oil and water. I hope this helps.
