Got out....dried off....and then starting with my face started spraying just enough of the ivermectin mixture into my hand to cover the area and then applying. So on and so on until I had covered my whole body including ears, eyelids, lashes, inside nostrils, and privates.
Before I had left one area and moved to the next the little critters started to come out of my skin.
Not a few....bunches. I don't know that much about the different kinds ....but there were at least 3 kinds that showed up! Some had dark forest green fibers wraped around them.

Any way .... I am going to leave this on overnight.
If any bite me I want them to die !
I may not have won the war, but I have won this round!
Your creativity has inspired me! My family and I are suffering from these little f**kers and have been for about a month now. Come payday (3 days away), these little jerk-offs are going to meet their match! Thank you Pokadot Patty!

I have been using the Ivermetin (Horse) internally for quite a while, it seems to last 1 to 4 days, and grapefruit juice helps it stay in the body better.
Also Avon Skin so Soft works great to clean them out. Use it with an Alcohol "GEL" sanitizer. Alternate them, and rub it in deeply. You will see all sorts of things come out from your pores.
Steri-Fab is supposed to work well as an insecticide (mite) spray in the house.
I will try using the Iver as a topical and see how it works.
Thanks !!!
Keep putting up what works on these forums !!!!
For the invermectin, how much would the adult dose be that you used or was it judged by weight? Thanks soooo much!

would like to try the food grade DE but not sure how safe it is, worried about inhaling it,especially since I workout a lot and fear the heavy breathing might screw up my lungs if its on my body, tried alot of other scams, DE seems to be next for against these monsters from hell,
anyone know if it has to be applied with oil? or could DE be mixed with a lotion or cream instead? Thanks

There was a guy on this forum who claimed to have mixed DE with grapeseed oil and cured himself. I tried it and it made my skin dry and shriveled--but cured me of nothing. I've had this for 5 months now. I took two doses of Ivermectin last week, 6 days apart, and did a permithrin treatment last night. I feel the best I have in months. I hope it lasts. I've had a lot of set backs while fighting this. But I can tell you that I didn't have any positive results with the DE. I even left it in my carpets for two weeks, and sprinkled in my bedding, which I washed daily. Maybe it slowed the progression of the mites, but it certainly didn't cure it. Not for me at least.

I just tried the link and it doesn't show the article. This is what it says:

March 8, 2012 — Permethrin may be slightly more effective than ivermectin in the treatment of scabies. In a study involving 272 patients, a single dose of ivermectin provided a cure rate of 85.9% at 2 weeks compared with a 92.5% cure rate at 2 weeks from 2 applications (at a 1-week interval) of permethrin. The difference was not statistically significant (P =.42) in this noninferiority trial.

Mohamad Goldust, MD, from Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Iran, and colleagues report the results of their study comparing the efficacy of oral ivermectin with topical application of permethrin in the treatment of scabies in an article published online March 5 in the Journal of Dermatology. The authors found not only a slightly higher cure rate with permethrin but also that permethrin-treated patients recovered earlier.

The cure rate from ivermectin increased to 100% after patients were treated with permethrin after a 4-week interval, according to the authors. Treatment with ivermectin after permethrin increased the cure rate to only 94.2%.

The authors suggest that a single dose of ivermectin may not be effective because it fails to act against the organism at all stages of its life cycle. Although permethrin attacks both the adult organism and its eggs, ivermectin attacks only the adult organism.

The study included 272 patients with scabies who visited the dermatology outpatient department at Sina Hospital in Tabriz, Iran, between April 2008 and April 2011. Of these patients, 30 were lost to follow-up. The remaining 242 patients' ages ranged from 3 to 78 years (mean age, 36.2 ± 12.6 years).

Half of the patients and their family contacts received 5% permethrin cream, and the other half received oral ivermectin. The patients were evaluated at 2 and 4 weeks posttreatment.

Scabies is a highly contagious skin disease caused by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei. Scabies results in substantial morbidity from secondary infections and postinfective complications such as poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis. Lindane has been the preferred therapy for scabies for the last 50 years, and lindane has become the most widely used antiscabietic drug in Iran and other countries.

Resistance to lindane has risen, however, and there are now reports worldwide of several clusters of patients with lindane-resistant scabies. Ivermectin and permethrin were introduced as alternative treatments for scabies.

The authors have disclosed no relevant financial relationships.

Well, if you already have it, you might as well try it. Nothing to lose and everything to gain. It didn't work for me, but maybe you'll see some results. But try to get a prescription drug to treat it.

I have noticed several new articles that promote topical ivermectin for the treatment of lice. You can find at least three articles on the web from 2012 that address this as a possible new treatment with results from recent studies and trials. I don't know if its actively being prescribed by doctors yet, or if available at the pharmacies, but it certainly is worth pursuing for scabies and demodex mites as well.

If anyone else has heard of this or tried it, I would love to hear your results.

I have had them for a week and 3 days now, killing them somewhat (but they are still spreading) by spot-treating with permitrhin and acetone (spot treat with q-tips then wash off) Also to soothe my skin and hopefully kill a few, I've been using straight neem oil, together with heavy Epsom salt bath and taking Benadryl at night to control the itch (this has allowed me to sleep). Then last night I found bites on my my face. I think I can feel them crawling inside my nose and biting around/on my eyelids, and I'm afraid they will get into my sinuses next. I am going out today to get Patty's prescribed paste, Diatomacious earth (DE) for my insides, sulfur soap, Biosilk, and some lavender oil to spot treat. I will let you know as soon as I know if there is any improvement, or if I notice side effects from the topical ivermectin. 4/26/13

I got Ivermectin at a feed store 1.87%, doesn't matter what brand, and put 200 lbs worth into a small sprayer bottle, added hot water, about 5 oz., and shook it up and sprayed it all over. I started with my feet and calves first to see if there were any side effects like dizziness; then after 30 minutes there were no probs except tingling in the skin so I did the rest of my body up to my hairline all the way around. Since then, I feel pin pricks or itchiness and I look down and find a little black speck or you can feel a hard speck, kinda feels like a grain of sand, but it's white. For the black speck, if you look really closely you can tell it's a bug. I found about 5 that seemed dead, and one that I thought I could tell was still crawling, scraped them off and put them in a baggie. Want to see if I can find a magnifying glass, want to know if that's really what it is so I'll know for sure what to look for. It's a really slow process because it takes a while to work into your skin, then you have to wait, and I reapplied. I did not want to take the ivermectin internally, but I'm hearing people say that sometimes the things just get too far down and don't respond to the topical treatment, so I sprayed some of the Iver water mixture in my mouth and waited about 30-45 minutes to see how it affected me (dizziness or nausea). I am really sensitive to meds and I have done permithrin before for head lice, that was only 1% and it made me sick, dizzy, nauseated, and had a few heart palpitations, so I was just testing the water, so to speak on taking the iver stuff internally. I feel a little dizzy now and who knows, maybe it's gas. I'm going to take a break for a while from it and come back to it later tonight, maybe reapply and go to bed and see how everything is in the morning. I have not been super diligent about cleaning. I had been spraying my bed with a neem/water mixture (now I will use the iver water mixture too), I do have borax-cleaned towels and bedsheets, and I wash and dry my stuff before wearing it a second time, but I am not going to go nuts on cleaning, because I know with these guys, I'll be disappointed. I am following this advice from another thread I read and from past experience that it just takes time, and I expect to be at this for at least a month. BTW I think I caught this at the laundromat when I had a mattress pad in the dryer and didn't dry it fully. I can't quit using the laudnromat, but I can start putting the iver on immediately as soon as I realize I have it. I'm so glad, Pokadot Patty that you posted your recipe. It is the thing that has worked the most so far in my tiny two weeks of having this. Thank you again.
