Here's a much shorter tip about permethrin. It can be bought at feed stores or online in a 10% mixture for putting on cattle and horses. I found it on amazon for $14.99 a quart + s&h. You can mix your own permethrin cream with it and its in liquid form so measuring is much easier. You can even make it a bit stronger than 5% but test an area of skin which is sensitive like the wrist or back of the knee and let it sit for 14hr before applying it everywhere. Some people have reactions to it some don't. I don't so I mix it a bit strong. You can use it in your laundry. You can mix it with water and spray down your furniture, car upholstery, bedding...etc.

Good Luck

Why is it so very hard to obtain Lindane Lotion,the only cure for the dreaded skin mites, called scabies! it almost seems like they want people to suffer with minimum delivery dates, after you must what a country to purchase it, since it's been banned in the USA, form less than good reasons, it still takes a minimum of 2 to 3 weeks, to have sent to you, while fast spreading scabies,spread over your entire body, eating you live, causing more than a little distressed. So my question is, why is it this way, and what can be done to change. Last December, 2010, Canada took steps to make it even harder to obtain, by requiring a doctor's prescription. It's true that lindane lotion requires to be used according to directions, but it's not rocket science, and is quite safe, and should be sold, over-the-counter at every drugstore in United States!

Welty was very long winded. You would NEVER get a one liner from Welty. It was always 3 pages. But she was good, better than you, Stinker. You don't have much to offer.

I don't know how I got scabies, because my partner doesn't seem to have them, I am on my second outbreak after things looked to be clearing up.

I read about prolonged exposure from skin to skin contact, I haven't been to a hotel but I may have had a guest over sit on my couch and sat on the same spot afterwards.

Apparently this is extremely rare, not sure. I'd like to kill whoever did this lol

My partner as I said before has no symptoms even though I am on my second outbreak, and we have had skin to skin contact (if you know what I mean) but still his skin doesn't seem to house them, just mine.

I got Scabies from a patient whom I cared for in his own home..........

I certainly did not have skin to skin contact I always wear gloves when touching a patient.......he had an undiagnosed rash for about 6 months despite seeing a Consultant Dermatologist......the only way I could have caught it was from sitting in his chair one day when he collapsed.........he was lying semi conscious on his settee and I sat in his chair waiting for the ambulance......

I know I haven't been sleeping around. I am positive that my wife hasn't been sleeping around. I got the symptoms about 3 days ago and now on mess, I reckon I got it trying in clothes at a clothing store. This really sucks
