I am still fighting scabies in my hair and on my face,a few still left on my body. I have been dealing with this scince May. It has been so bad. Myson died July 27th and then my husband died on Sept 27th. I have been so unhappy. These doctors are not qualified to treat anyone.

Did you do your face and scalp in the perm treatment or were you advised to leave them alone? Most doctors give totally incorrect and often very damaging advice.
Go to your local pharmacy and pick up a bar of ten percent sulfur soap and wash your face with it push a little of the soap back into your hair line let dry. good luck

Ugh Diane, sorry for your lost. Having to deal with family lost is hard enough, never mind adding this mite to the mix. I pray you get cleared soon. I too have had this since May, I was misdiagnosed till September. I am also really depressed. I am sleeping in my guest room on an air mattress for 4 weeks because I don't want to get my husband infested. It's really sad, I want to give my daughter a hug and I can't. I have been blessed that they have not caught this. If you need to talk you can email me direct [email protected]

Thanx for the tip, will definitely try.

Diane and missing-my-family: Started in May here too. Was also misdiagnosed at first, then diagnosed and started treating, not as aggressively at first and certainly not as effectively, very ill-informed until coming to these forums. Best of luck.

Sorry to hear about your plight! Merry Christmas indeed. Get to the thread on this forum called Borax Solution - CURE, and follow the protocol. Basically, use 1/4 tsp of borax in water if you are over 160 pounds, or 1/8 tsp if under that weight. Also get thee to a health food store and buy some 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide = not the drug store variety. Start with 3 to 5 drops in a glass of water and do that three times a day. Every day, add one more drop of peroxide to your glass of water that you take three times a day. If you are able, add 2 tbsps of apple cider vinegar in water to take every day to help make your body more alkaline. On that thread, it suggests mixing 2 parts of water with 1 part of regular 3% drug store hydrogen peroxide along with a bit of borax, to use externally to kill some more on your skin. I find the borax too hard on my skin externally, so I just use straight 3% peroxide, even hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol. The most important info. here is about the internal borax and 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide, which I would start immediately if I were you.

Maybe you should check in with your doctor. Permethrin overuse can cause nerve damage, but you do recover. Mites can cause so many weird symptoms, you never know. You really need to see your doctor though.

Use Diatom powder on everything
If you have long hair cut it ( we shaved our heads and my wife now wears a wig until her hair grows back). Diatom powder in bed with you rub it into your scalp.

Then linden shampoo. These mite lay their egg sacks on the hair then go back to under the scalp until its ready to lay more eggs.

Good earth ( diatoms powder ) powder.
On every thing, everything!!!!

In the clothes, on the carpet and rugs on the shelfs. These things can live for 6 weeks off the body and they have long legs and cross whole rooms and can jump onto victims.

Sorry yes Lindane

Stay aware from bleach baths. Spot treat bad spots with bleach but you don't need it everywhere.

Diatom powder everywhere because these can live 6 weeks off the host so if they leave you then the powder gets them and put it all over your bed and sheets and closet.

Isn't lindane super toxic? I read it killed some people.

I used diotomacious earth and it ruined a vacuum cleaner, borax works better and won't screw up your stuff.

Yes lindane is pretty bad stuff. diotomacious earth will blow out your vacuum bags. But you should only vacuum up ones the house is clean of bugs. Once the powder is down leave it there. It should be heavy enough to see on everything. Then leave it down for months. Put it in bed with you on your pillows in the sheets. Everywhere!

Here is something new that I tried for the hair/scalp. Mixed 1/4 cup salt with 1/2 cup coconut oil and massaged it all into my scalp and hair thoroughly. Put on shower cap left in for 8 hrs. I feel it made a really big difference. I am going to do this once a week if needed. Coconut oil is antibacterial and antifungal and salt kills anything pretty much. All I know is that after I did this no more itching. You might have to adjust the measurements depends if you have long or short hair. Works for me that's all I know.

There was someone on this forum that wore salt in a shower cap for months and is still messing with their scalp. You don't have scabies you have morgellons and when you start treating what you have you'll make much better progress.

A couple of over night reliefs I found to (at least for me)are citrus based mouthwash in a hot shower,rubbing alcohol and peroxide.Leave the citrus mouthwash on whole body head too.Then before getting out reapply and pat dry.It will help the itch for about 12 hrs.The rubbing alcohol/peroxide apply to infected area may burn a little.

Permethrin cream and Stromectol tabs from doctor. Also strong antibiotics. You may want to consider 45% perm liquid for dogs if bad infestation. The same ingredient used in Stromectol can be found at feed stores, as ivermectin paste. The dose per pound for horses is the same for humans.
Borax in/on everything including washing clothes. Clean and vacuum like a maniac, and don't bother with natural alternatives- you're fighting the devil.
