Lang, yes that fits my description! And of course you're right. My ex-partner still-friend just went to the country store in the UK and purchased two things of ivermectin paste (apple flavor) to apply as topical (£30). She has very little income monthly, but I won't let her down. I have sent her my last 5 doses of ivermectin tablets and will send her more if she requires. I will be looking for pour on ivermectin. Both of you are right. Just don't use stupid products like I did!

I took a really good look at myself in a picture today and wondered how I got here. I look tired and run down with darkness around eyes. I am not a picture of a healthy person - like a druggie, but even when young I never dabbled, smoked or drank in excess.

Problems in moving a company to efficient functioning is the basis for my lack of health. Some things that escalated this were in the hands of others, but also I could have exercised to compensate. I am sure this illness was caught in Romania on frequent travels and just when I needed the financial resources to fight this off, they were out of reach and being invested elsewhere. My recent relocation to Spain is a personal move in the right direction that I'll continue. There are good friendships there, exercise in the frequent bike riding and sun.

In Thailand, I'll concentrate in getting treatment and walking to exercise. I'll get healthy again and return to work sensibly. I'm good at analyzing and putting steps or resources together for large projects and that's what I'll do. I'll walk more and spend more time me. I can only use this past disastrous year as a wake up call. again and return to work sensibly.

Today, I took a bus and then walked to a cleaners who will wash and iron (yes iron) the clothes being worn over the past three days. Everything else is brand new. Only a couple weeks ago, I could not imagine even doing this simple task and enjoying a coffee at Starbucks as I am now doing. All my waking energy was prepared into the company I was attempting to drive. Late each morning because of all the preparation. Not sleeping because of all the irritation on my body -- and the stress. Almost a whole years worth. The ivermectin made THE difference (and the flow of funds finally). Maybe I can beat this. My parents want me to return home. They are concerned and as a family have a lot at their disposal, but I am on the same mission from when I first left home, to make life myself.

To my recently ex-partner, and now friend, I will make sure you cure. I'll sell the precious gem stones in my collections, the Miro, the Sam Francis, the Max Ernst, the Rizzi's, the Zarpellon's, the Sepi's, the Viennese Karl May sculpture I so value and my Prevost to do it. I want you to know this. You will not get to the point of myself without me fighting. If I cure first, I'll jump back into the room and put topicals on your back myself. They never called me Raider at JFKIMA for nothing. I'm tough, even though you heard me crying over the phone when this battle was backing me into the corner.

The Jeyers Experiment:
After 1:30 am, I woke up dizzy to a terrible dream. There were snakes all over, my brown Larbador dog (I don't and never did own one) was dodging the snakes and finally as he sniffed under old wooden porch steps he was bitten on the nose a laid quietly down. I killed the very vivid snake orange and pale white stepped snake (with a dinner late!) and picked up both dog and snake for the hospital. Then woke up. What's unusual is that I am not a vivid dreamer and never in color. I hate snakes and remember Bushmasters working their way down the trail riding on the water from the pouring rain every time lightening lot up the Panamanian jungle. From that point on I have hated snakes. Now I hate stupid actions such as rubbing Jeyers into my skin to get a few hours of sleep. I guess I'm getting better because I'm at least starting to write more.

You're so right. Most young people today recognize this and exercise, eat healthy, play well and take care of themselves. I'm from a generation of another and regret it now. But as you pointed out, it's never too late to start. Thanks

What were they thinking:
I am not the person who needs to be at a desk everyday or has a boss that needs reporting to, but I measure progress by being able to build clients and keep a few people employed. On some day last year, colleagues must have realized that here was a person arriving in business suits with polished shoes and suddenly shifts to Walmart clothes (I'm loving Boston Crew now) and blue deck shoe that looked like (and were) boiled in water evenings. Whom started to arrive late to the office whenever they came in, and stayed long periods in their own office always. Whom started looking tired and irritable. That was me. And colleagues never said a word. Only me (now) ex-partner and a close colleague knew the truth, not my parents, siblings or grown up kids.

I exhausted doctors, public, private and specialists. An aquaintence visiting Guatamale attempted to get ivermectin for me. I paypal'd him $400 immediately, but the chemists order would not arrive before he departed. He paypal'd it back. Then I cloistered myself away in Spain while my face, ears and hands developed lesions too ugly to go outside around other people. It was the only opening up to another friend who spent a good part of his personal time in Thailand scrounging pharmacies for ivermectin that salvation showed a faint face on the horizon. Now I just hope it rises and cures me and my ex-partner.

Back in hotel and feel like a yo-yo. This going to be a hard journey. I felt good in morning, but on bus back to hotel I felt some really strong bites: back, upper arm by shoulder and on stomach. I think I am also getting a new hive by my right eye. How can I beat this?

When landing in Thailand, I'm going to visit doctors and dose good on ivermectin, which is the only thing that settle things down. What would the topical for this be? I'm not sure and I think I am not as tough as I thought I was earlier today at Starbucks.

I'll either look back at this, or it will be my epitaph.

Official: it's a hive near my right eye high on my cheekbone and about 1/2" x 1/4" oval. If I was taking the ivermectin regularly, this wouldn't happen. Ivermectin though is supposed to be taken a week apart and my last dose was three days ago. I think the doses worked only when very high. I hope I can fly out before this one breaks out. Right now it's just red like a burn mark.

When I first went to the emergency room, I had traditional track marks and rash between my fingers. There was even a small tunnel between one of my fingers, not counting a couple on arms, wrist and buttocks.

None of the dermatologists seen did a skin scraping. The $500 appointment at the private clinic had no microscope at the clinic even though they claimed "Saudi Princes" came there!

Tunnels then became lesion oriented. These are oval areas that are soft and skin color, enentually turning red like a burn mark, then raised and somewhat moist, then open and scabby. Some turn into super scabs and stay amour hard and never heal. The ivermectiin healed the moist ones sometimes overnight. They then scabed and healed leaving pink areas on my skin. I have maybe 70-80.

There are ten or so on my stomach that shank in size with the ivermectin, but have stayed red and super hard. This is called atypical scabies from what I read, but I'm no doctor of medicine.

Yes, it would be great to get a definitive parasite conclusion, but it seems doctors and dermatologist can look and proclaim.

The eye areas are the worst. Tunnels over the eye, under the brow and in the recessed socket area are the hardest to get rid of. You can follow the tunnel upwards. I could scrape out the two that came on the right, but the one on the left could not be scraped to rid the mite. Thes then produce what feels like fiberglas insulation shards around the soft areas of the eye and cheek. I'm only guessing immature mites. You can clean thes off so it's smooth again using amonnia or prescription eye drops, but they come back as long as the mite is housed. It takes about a month to rid the burrow and to heal.

I was just wondering if there was going to be a murder mystery in this story. You know, spruce it up a bit. Maybe a love story, or something exciting. A murder/love story, yeah, that's the ticket.

In uk2,
Please don't feel bad about reactions to your posts.
Your writing is very vivid and personal. What comes across to me is that, along with treating your scabies, you are grappling with the "how can this be my life now" part of things. Pretty much everybody that has had this or a similar condition for a lengthy time goes has many of the same thoughts. Your situation; freedom to travel, work that inspires you, family with means, art collection to sell etc., may be different from many here, and perhaps makes having this condition feel more ironic and hard to believe for you. But the truth is that none of those things protect you from the scabies. Perhaps keeping in mind that many here have had and are having the same struggle as you and in the process have lost many things and existed in a way that has also been hard for them to fathom, will be of help to you.
We all have in common the quest to get back to health, and are rooting for you to do the same.
Hang in there.

It's not, its me, and I have Benzyl too close to my eyes right now. Mixed Tea Tree and Benzyl, then permethrin 5%, then Benzyl, then another coat permethrin. This is personal and I want to blog it for others in the future. Anyone doing this as a hoax or story has perverted sense of being. Maybe me too, but I really don't know how this ends.

Actually, I am beginning to think its too personal for sharing. I'll post less and update only periodically. The forum has helped with finding info where doctors have not been helpful at all.

Here is my question: the people in aboriginal villages, or Nigeria or those with really bad scabies referred to in medical abstracts, how do or did they survive and am I just a wimp? I've never been one, but this is killing me. I had to ask. In the future, I'll find a way to post pictures from an iPhone to substantiate this journey.
