Hi,
So I was just diagnosed with scabies(not cool) and I am particularly disturbed to know that those bumps are the feces of the mites. I was prescribed Permethrin Cream to get rid of them, but I am curious as to what happens to the feces? I know that eventually the itching goes away, as well as the bumps, but how does this happens? I need to know so that later, when I can come out of social hibernation, my friends are not so freaked out by my poo-filled skin.

Don't believe anybody when they say one dose does the trick. It kills anybody roaming around and the surface dwellers, but not the eggs. Eggs hatch and the adolescents make new burrows. You HAVE to re-treat in a week ...and even still you may only decrease the load of roamers.

1. THREE times a day, shower in warm water and SCRUB with tea tree oil (diluted) or sulfa soap or salt or neems oil. Let the lather stay on your body for 10 minutes or so and rinse with cool water. Always use a clean towel and put on clean clothes. Use gloves to transport towels and dirty clothes to the washer/dryer (20 minutes HIGH heat at least). Make sure one of the scrubbings right before bed time and right when you wake up.

2. Cover your pillows and mattress in a "BED BUG proof cover." Wash all sheets daily, put pillows and blankets in dryer for at least 20 minutes before going to bed. Put your hairbrush and washcloths in a bag in the freezer after use, rinse with hot water before reuse).

3. Cover your body in tea tree lotion (or eucalyptus, peppermint, lavender) and athletes foot powder to keep the hatching critters from moving easily about.

4. REPEAT until you don't feel pin-pricks, crawling sensation, or see new bumps. The more often you wash off the roamers, the less mite poop you'll have to deal with.

5. I would recommend taking Ivermectin as well, as it kills burrowing adults.

We are in our second round because my daughter and I did all of the above, got better, but my husband did not have an allergic reaction so he wasn't as vigilant. Turns out, he was most likely hosting a few momma's that jumped back on me. No fun to have to start all over :(

Depending on how long you had scabies before treatment will determine how long it takes for the skin to surface the dead scabies mites and their debris. You can exfoliate daily and make use of sulfur soaps which will help surface it out faster!

Whoa! How do all you keep getting infected? My derm said "maybe" it was scabies, BUT was actually psoriasis, But I was treated ONLY with one app of the perm, Just Incase, bc they are very hard to tell appart, but doing fine now. Washed bedding and other stuff a few times. All is good now. Terrible itching before and after treatment, but no reinfections as I have no clue how I got this, hubby don't have, grand child and my girls do not live here, I go no where as it is, nobody in my life has ANY skin conditions what-so-ever, not even acne!, and my hub and I do "seep around". But if I did have the mites, what does happen to their bodies, fecal matter and eggs AFTER all is said and done and not infected again? IF that is what I even had. A lot of similarities with psoriasis and mites, so even my derm dr couldn't actually find any mites in the skin biopsy and said usually you will not see the actual mites, and whatever else they have with them. And she said that psoriasis has a lot of the same Look and itchy's and symptoms, so maybe some of you should condier being tested your immune system to make sure youre not keep having psoriasis flares....just saying. I don't know why so may cant get rid of their mites, so easy with perm.....

After shower washing, i put the plug in the bath and give myself a cold shower. Small brown like worms rinse off my body. I am presuming it is the faeces of the scabies. Anybody else seen this?
