ivermectin will get the mites outof your scalp.

also, MSM powder mixed with your hair condtioner. leave it in overnight and wash it out in the morning., MSM powder has sulfur in it.

you can buy sublimed sulfur on the net. mix with lotion and apply full body. mix some sulfur with water and pour over your head, rub it in really good.

benzyl benzoate mixed with rubbing alcoholcan be used as a spray on your scalp.

head and shoulders in the blue bottle is good for the mites in your scalp, too.

by far, the most effective for scabies, is ivermectin.

Scabies3, don't mean to get personal, but you are an inspiration. This forum works thanks to the tireless efforts of the likes of you.

Incidentally, I ended up throwing out a few days ago both open jars of MSM Cream and Cocoanut Oil, which I loved, but all the double-dipping--no, no. I don't know where or how these things abide in a jar of cream, but they began to seem contaminated to me, especially the MSM cream. If it can't be poured or squirted, I ain't going near it anymore.
The iver works pretty well in the short term--it's the long term I'm worried about. Why do these damn mites or whatever keep coming back? I buy so many vinyl gloves, I have to go to different pharmacies--like an alcoholic switching liquor stores.

Do you know, I have benzyl benzoate and didn't know I could mix it with alcohol and spray. God, that's good to know.

I have posted elsewhere that I think I may have comorbid worms, too. Keep throwing iver at them, feel better for a few days, then symptoms come back, almost with a vengeance (it seems). This could be my scabies, the degree of infection, or it could be something else, too, that needs medicine. I think I need to be "dewormed" as Aha put it. I have always loose bowels, and the thing is, the iver makes that better, not worse. Also, I have a nasty ringing in my ears that gets worse when condition gets worse. It's one way I can tell what's going on, on me and in the environment. Also, there's a scent my parasites carry--its' now gotten easy for me to read the amount of infection from that scent. It's not even a terrible odor, more like a yeasty, sweet smell. But I hate it. I really do.
If anyone else has these symptoms in particular, I would appreciate hearing about it. All of these symptoms, which I have not seen reported here, may mean I have to look elsewhere too (Not an either or situation, you can be sure).

bumpyhead: had all those nodules on scalp. Only my good internist actually palpitated my scalp and felt the bumps. After that, I managed to get rid of the bumps with topical steroids and tea tree oil, but not the mites. They only seemed to burrow deeper! It was like poison pins all over. Without nodules for evidence, the bad derm was free to tell me it was all my imagination. The scalp is terrible place to have it! Bad place.

Ivermectin really, really helps. Also, I got kiwella lotion from Blueskypharmacy.com (not sure of email address, but it's not hard to google--Canadian online pharmacy, found out about it here). The Kiwella lotion (also not sure of that spelling either) is permethrin in lotion form, like Nix only 5% instead of 1%. It really works.
My scalp is much better--right now on ivermectin (lots) and going through a "debriding," all the little "brides" are falling out in my hair, which is a gritty mess despite best efforts, but itch is much more on the surface and much more sporadic, both good signs.

janet: i have spoken with people who have bird mites and are having a hard time with it. they are doing cleanses and they recommend cleanses in the order in which they should be done. I don't know. I haven't done it, yet. When you say sweet smell, then I'm thinking fungal, yeast. so do a colon cleanse and a fungus/yeast cleanse. do a search on the net about this. check out albendazole for internal parasites. aha is the pro about this. may be wise for you to join the other yahoo groups. birdmitesorg yahoo group and finding1cure yahoo group (that's a morgellons group). It's good that you are very mindful of the things which may infect you. Msm never did much for me, but it helps others on here. i just took my loofah shower and i feel great. they really help get rid of a bunch of mites, debris, you name it, it's down the drain.

Okay. well, Janet. While you are still able to afford these hotel stays, maybe up your dosage of ivermectin and take it more often. It is killing the adults, but since we have so many, it's hard to stay on top of them. maybe up your dosage.

Thanks. That's just what I've been thinking. The adults are still coming, but there's less each time, so just kepp hitting the newly arrived, right after the prom, bam! While I'm on the run, do more iver, just go for it. But last Wednesday already tried upping dosage to 4 tabs--too much--lots of bug activity and heart palpitations--3 tabs 2 days in a row on the ohter hand has had best effect. I'll wait til tomorrow. I think I do better when I take the iver during the day for some reason, those short-lived side effects don't bother me so much.(Sometimes I get woozy, and if I'm awake at night it scares me.) I can take it late morning or early afternoon with cream and grapefruit juice.(Hope I'm near a supermarket. But these are fancy problems really. I got both iver and hotels--for now.)
Forgot to get loofahs, but that shower sounds great. I can use hotel washclothes.
For some reason I think the Prescribing Information says don't put on permethrin after hot shower. Will have to check.

Maybe your parents can get you in to see a dermatologist or a regular doctor and you can tell the doctor what your symptoms are. A lot of times if you don't have something obvious like a rash than they won't believe you.
You'll have to have them check out your skin and scalp thoroughly if they will do that. Good luck. TL

Hey Charlie I posted to you but forgot to link it to your comment
My suggestion was that you get your parents to help you to see a dermatologist (skin specialist) or a regular doctor to throughly check out your skin. If you are not having any obvious skin rashes it is hard for doctors to believe there is anything going on. If you have scabies people usually have bad itching at night while trying to sleep. You might have pimple like out breaks or notice small scratch marks, itchy spots. The doctors always check in between your fingers, does it itch there , any rash spots? Sometimes there are feelings of crawling , or biting. It is not always scabies but there are other things that can cause that, other mites, fleas,
lice. Keep yourself and your room and clothing super clean-sorry for the hard times. Get your parents to help you see a doctor if it doesn't get better. Take care - TL

Charlie, if you are incarcerated, that ups the odds that you have scabies, which is an infectious disease that is especially common in institutions. The good news is that, as soon as you have one red bump, rash, or scratch, the doctor there will probably recognize it, as he sees it every day. Probably one of the best places to get treatment is where you are. The higher up the medical ladder you go, the less likely you are to get medical treatment. A lot of us here can testify to that. So, in at least this one way, you're better off! The point is to treat as soon as possible, it's much easier to cure early on. I and probably most of us here had severe itching, biting, etc before we had many visible signs. When you see the first red bump, rash, or weird looking scratch, start working on getting to the clinic I know that's probably not easy, but you have to do whatever you can to make that happen. Stay with it. Good luck.

Oh, just read that you were, but now are not, incarcerated. Well, the advice is the same. As soon as you see a shiny, red bump, get to a big free clinic and explain you picked up something that's tormenting you while incarcerated. The clinic people will know.
My internist suggested months ago that I'd do better at a free clinic, and I was just too freaked out from the E.R. experience I had at a big city public hospital to want to expose myself to anything else, which is ironic, since I'm the carrier. Anyway, he was probably right. It's hard to get treatment from other places, that's for sure.

Kelly, they're in my scalp too - although I'm feeling better - it takes time to heal.

I have it around the back of my neck and my forehead too. The crown of my head and the top of my head. That's where it started - then it spread to my legs.

First, I used Nix, thinking it was lice - but quickly realized it wasn't ...

Hang in there!!

I am in tears---I have been dealing with this for a year now--I was told by my doctor that this was folical dermatitus-- My scalp has been itchy and had these raised areas on it--I used all of my perscription cream but the itch was still there. this summer is started getting these little blister
spots on my fingers--what next? I am thinking--I went to get some Psoriosis shampoo and that seemed to make it worse-- what the hell??? I am so angry and upset--A whole damned year!!!-- Is this really what it is?? Your descriptions sound spot on-- I could just die.

All, as Sam and I discovered, many mites swim, for example those that spread "river blindness." Same is true of lice. Their legs look like king crabs!

When I would bathe early on in treating for unknown parasites, they would make a beeline for my neck, arms, whatever was exposed.

Now, I treat chin up in the sink. I apply my enzyme cleaner, leave in 30 min or more, apply conditioner, use a detangling comb then a cat flea comb, and comb thoroughly, never holding the comb too tight as I have had it rebound while I was scrubbing the teeth with the brush I clean the bristles with. I pay close attention to the hairline, especially the nape of my neck.

When I rinse my hair at any stage of washing and combing, I make sure no water from my hair runs onto my face, and that no water from my brows runs into my eyes nose or mouth. In other words, I work down, and I use a ton of paper towels. I make sure there is nothing breakable on the counter between me and the roll of paper towels, because sometimes I am in a hurry! When I'm done I soak hair with treatment du jour (Pink Oil this year), rub into scalp, wrap head with clean paper towels, put an old stretched out wig cap over the paper towels, than put on a conditioning cap (Sally's Beauty,$8.99/100 caps) and do not rewash my face or uncover my hair in the shower--ever.

From the chin up: sink.
From the chin down: shower.

Sorry we found out the hard way!!!

A LOT more info on Scabies & Treatments at www.Geocities.com/dhr6878 and YES, they definitely love the face, and scalp. In fact that's usually where I see people have the first symptoms, the face and tops of arms/shoulders
