The only person I knew that had scabies was over l0 years ago in her punk rock era. She showed her arms and they looked like pink goosebumps all up and down her inner forearms and in her fingers. Mine never looked like that as I had,(I should say have, because I've had a couple of new ones because I'm superstitious, a more papular? type with fewer bumps, but I bet just as much itching. I think yours are more representative, so I think you'll either get help quickly, or will not let as much time lapse because you don't know what it is. Here's hoping you nip this in the bud asap!

I have them on my chest and neck, too, right now. These things are tenacious, aren't they? Maybe they spread on you,k trying to get away from that spray.

Itty Bitty , CML...Like most people on here I've tried many of the methods suggested. I do use the deflea straight on my hair at night while I sleep, seems like it is helping. The other thing that I do is..take a box of those flushable wipes like cottenelle or walmart has an Equate cheaper version of them...they're nice not too much odor...they come in plastic boxes and you can buy refills..then I pour in some of the deflea/ and hydrogen peroxide...easy on the hydrogen peroxide because it does make the little buggers go insane and irritates your skin if you use it straight.I add a little alcohol based skin spray freshener like
cheap stuff from the dollar store/cherry blossom or whatever. After a shower before a potent lotion like sulfur or perm, I just wipe down my whole body with those wipes and use them through out the day...that deflea does say exfolliant too so it does make you skin flaky after a while...good luck...I do believe that many of us are dealing with different annoying mites...that cause different reactions and symptoms...I appreciate Aha's natural method ideas too! I've mixed up a bottle of lotion with clove /anise/ manuka...kind of fragrant but hoping for the best...trying the olive leaf tea right now!....TL

CML, you just answered your own question ;) You used so much of the deflea your skin finally told you to stop using it. I've had the same thing happen with tto. Time to let your skin heal up with mild lotion. My opinion only.

itty bitty, see the white road maps under your skin? That's what mine look like, but most have got wider and are fading as they grow out. I don't know about that bad rash though. Looks like it could be scabies or reaction to something else. It looks painful. I had to start rewashing my clothes to wash out the detergents.

CML.....Sam is probably right....I don't get too much reaction from the deflea... although I did have a few more irritations today on my skin than usual....so I should ease up too. I use the shampoo more than the spray ...don't know that there is much difference except that one is soapier than the other. It hasn't seemed to bother my scalp...I'm hoping that is because it is getting better. I am taking the oral iver too. I'm breaking out the arsenal this weekend on the home front...crazy cleaning...Where do you get your cocanut oil or lotion that you use to mix with clove oil, anise, etc? Take care

Hi,olive oil is a good carrier oil, olive oil also feeds the body and nourishes the skin and joints. If you add hot oregano oil, garlic or HOT red cayenne pepper, anise or clove etc to the olive oil you have a good miticide, larvacide and ovacide.
If skin gets too soft from the olive oil, take 180 proof grain alcohol, about 8 dollars at the liquer store and make a miticide larvacide ovicide tincture, soak olive leaf or other miticide herb in a mason jar, with one cup miticide herb to 2 cups grain alcohol, after 2 weeks this will be a powerful astringent to dry up and weeping sores. The herbs kill the mites larvae and eggs and the 180 proof grain alcohol totally sterilizes the skin preventing any secondary infection.
I started drinking carrot juice and fresh green juices again, carrot, spinach, celery etc, Jack Lalaine type drinks for blood cleansing, and eating a lot of fresh beets, fresh fruit, greens from the salad bar. A clean bloodstream helps the immune fight off mites and infections.
I noticed dogs that get mange are often malnourished and dogs in shows where breeders feed the dogs a good balanced healthy diet and groom them alot seem less susceptible to scabies mange mite infections.
It helps the immune system fight off scabies to have a well balanced healthy diet, clean bloodstream and strong immune.
Take Care.

Everclear is the grain alcohol it is 190 proof or rectified spirits alcohol is 192 proof, these are both sold in liquer stores for 8 or 10 dollars are as powerful as clorox for disinfecting and sterilizing, yet they can be used ON SKIN as an astringent topical disinfectant tincture. Mix with miticide herbs.
People alergic to clorox use grain alcohol to clean and disinfect toilets and surfaces. Clorox, Ammonia, Everclear and Rectified Sprits all powerful disinfectants that kill mites and larva, ova, bacteria and germs. Everclear 190 proof and Rectified Spirits 192 proof are safe to use on skin and are used as the base of most all herbal tinctures.

Itty Bitty, I was just able to get a look at the photos you uploaded..
I had made a suggestion about something I do...with hydrogen peroxide and deflea mixed in with wipes. I know you are smart and have tried all kinds of treatments too...but hydrogen perox. would totally make that rash worse..it turns irritations white and then they stand out more.
My irritations are not nearly so obvious as in your pics. Once I took an epsom salt bath and added...I don't even remember what else....and the skin on my arms ended up looking really red and irritated like that. Maybe the deflea and epsom that you use as a spray are too much irritation. Just a thought. Sorry you are going through such hell. Take care. TL

Hi Too Long: Yes, since the DeFlea (shampoo, not spray) shampoo that I was using, I think it irritated my skin. It does have an acid in it. I have since slowed down on using that shampoo. I like hydrogen peroxide, because it totally gets to the mites, as it is a penetrant, and it helps to kill the mites. Yes, the legs were irritated and red from using hydrogen peroxide. I agree that the epsom salts irritates the skin, too.
I find it amazing of all the things I have tried and used, I still can't get rid of these things. They survive.

I have used the anise oil, mixed with the Germ-X hand gel. It does burn and it works. I can feel the mites running out of my skin when I use it. Also started to use the clove oil, mixed with the Germ x hand gel.

This morning, started with the cayenne pepper, mixed with olive oil. and taking the cayenne pepper internally. At least the rooms don't smell like permethrin spray (euwwww); they smell like clove or licorie. the clove smell is nice.

The hot baths are helping, too. One poster told me to place towels on the body parts sticking up out of the water, so the mites won't reattach to skin. Soak the towels in the hot water mixture frequently.

Sam: That rash was an attack from when I was cooking in the kitchen. I spend alot of time in that room, and I am constantly battling the mites in there (same with the car). Yes, I irritated that rash by using the hydrogen peroxide; the H2O2 makes the rash more pronounced.
