Needpeace well my doctor told me I was in post scabies. The ich was really intense. It was worse then when I had the bugs. I ich here and there, but the "biting" has stopped. My skin has taken a pounding, I got a rash from the cream, but I got stuff to deal with it. I think I caught it early, my derm said she couldn't even take a scraping. I go back today its been about 2 weeks so we shall see what the deal is. I hope your doin better ill post when I get Bach,(its a hour ride) so it will be a bit. I do get new spots but they come and go. My skin is healing I will have a scar or two, but ill take that over the bugaboos any day. Have a good one.
Thats awesome! I'm glad your doing better. This crap consumes our lives, and its no way to live. I'm doing ok. I can't say the C word, but I'm doing a lot better. What this does to your mind is crazy! keep us posted, people need to have hope that they won't stay itchy forever

Well things went well, the derm said I will have the ich for a few more weeks, but all and all I think these bugaboos are dead (hope). I have been using this steroid cream, which I'm not a fan of, it seems to make me a bit more itchy. The rash is going away, the spots come and go still. The derm said it's just my body healing and getting rid of the carcass and poop. I feel better, not hopelessly lost anymore. Its going to be a long road but I can huge my kids again, go into public not feeling like a leper. I take 2 showers a day to make sure I wash the yucky away. I use lotion that the doc gave me to deal with the dry skin. For the people reading my post please have faith, don't give up. Follow directions, wash and rotate your clothes, shoes, sheets. Reinfection is the way to screw yourself. I ironed my clothes, hot dryers, it's extreme but prevention of reinfection is the key. Some methods don't work for everyone but there are tons of ways to treat yourself. Explore your options, don't do hanky stuff. Read information on this horrible bug. I will pray for each one of you. God bless, and God speed.

Yes my dermodologist said our minds are powerful.
We cannot believe the scabies are gone.
Our body will expel dead eggs and poop.
I had a haircut for the first time in 3 months yesterday as I did not want to put my hairdresser at risk.
I also told her I had,had scabies and asked her to wear gloves just as a precautionary measure.
I had so much hair that even showering did not remove it all and last night I felt pricks and looked through a magnifying glass and there, where I felt the pricks were a few hairs left over from my haircut.,
I am 99% confidant I am over it but it has been a long hard battle.
Good luck to all scabie sufferers and God bless

As far as your face goes, I'm not sure what to do.

IF IT IS IN YOUR HAIR
1) buy some kerosene (can be generic)
2) buy a hair net thing like you use when you dye your hair
3) apply kerosene ALL OVER HAIR AND SCALP
4) put the hair thing on and sleep with it on your head
5) wake up and wash it out with shampoo and conditioner
6) YOU CAN STILL BLOWDRY AND FLATIRON YOU HAIR AFTER YOU WASH IT.

If they gt into your scalp the only treatment that is going to be successful is stremectol... the lotions prescribed are topical for the skin but on the scalp they just make em mad ! haha.. they come back in force.. i have batttled it for over a yr.. the only thing that has worked on my face and scalp is the oral stremectol tablets and i have only tken my first dose 2 days ago but already can tell a signifigant differene.. i can sleep.. before if i turne the lights out i could feel them in my scalp crawling from hair folicle to hair folicle.. burrowing..i swear i could feel them when the eggs hatched ad they moved to another hair folicle after chewing that one off.. i have half the hair i had a yr ago.. i have ow started gently massaging virgin coconut oil on my scalp.. it helps moisturise it aftr all the lice and crap the doctors prescribed my heaad.. after me telling them the are not lice... but still they would look a t my hair folicles for eggs when the dang things were under my skin.. but to gt them to do a scraping took a act of god ! Makes a person wonder jusst if we will ever really get rid of thd dang things...
Yes, I agree. In my case it took 12 doses of ivermectin (of which: 4 doses prescribed by the doctors I was seeing (stromectol) and 8 doses of Noromectin by norbrook). The hardest thing was to beat the pathogens in my scalp. I had no side effects. I'm now healthy and happy again ... and I have my life back!

Does anyone know after uding Elimite if you should experience new rashes in places you did not have them prior to the treatment? I've treated twice and cleaned like a maniac but I still feel a fluttery feeling on my skin. The rash is beyond just itching...it hurts! This has been a nighmare to deal with. We had 4 Dermatologists, 2 GP's and 1 Allergist misdiagnose scabies. They told my son he had chronic Urticaria. He figured it out after 3 months and treated himself. Then 5 weeks later, I got it. I'm usually an up person, but this has actually made me feel a bit depressed.
hi i was wondering what your son and you did to treat scabies and where can i get what i need? i am in real need of and info you can give, i finally get to have my daughter this summer and i really don't what to give it to her. THANK YOU for any help you can give.

Yes you definitely can get them on your face and scalp (and in your ears and on your eyelashes). Personally I use tea tree shampoo with extra tea tree oil mixed in on my hair and leave it on for a good five minutes while I shower the rest of me. I then dry my hair with a hot hairdryer and use loads of hair spray - it does seem to help. I actually think it is my hair that is keeping this awful infestation going. I use permithren (not sure if I have spelled it properly) on my face . As to the eye brows; I put a couple of drops of tea tree oil on cotton wool and wipe them over with that and then use baby wash on cotton wool - diluted with the same amount of water , to wipe over my eyelids. You need to do each of these every day for it to help though as I noticed that when I missed a day the horrible crawling feeling came back

Tiff: If you can get yourself some ivermectin, this will help to clear up the lesions you have on your face for everyone to see at your work. You can buy the injectible kind by Merial, online. you take 1 ml. for 110 lbs. of body weight. you mix it with juice. Wait 5 days and do it again. most of your lesions will clear up.
could you please send an email to caroljanice@att.net because i have a difficult time to get in and out of these forums. i guess from all that i have read you need a relationship or contact physically with an infected person. that there is no other way to catch this mite. just try and explain it to a physician or anyone for that matter. i was told however they usually say it's where you have been sitting, and i was asked so where have you been sitting? ha! i say you don't need many marks on you and to be covered and plastered with the scabs. how do you spell scab. i believe they go for the head and scalp because it is a good place for them to hide and lay their eggs. you might find the lice but hard to find the scabie. on the instrument used to weed the lice you might find a small speck that is white. with the microscope you will find the white speck looks more like a tiny white mite and sort of round. you can have both lice, gnats like, and scabies in your head or scalp. the physicians won't believe you and lord forbid you are on your way to a journey of no end but a big migration and cleaning, scrubbing, washing to no end. however nothing is forever. would you do me a kind favor after all my hard work, this ivermectin you say to mix is a prescription drug isn't it? so how do you just buy it? i think some people should get together and have petitions sign to make permethrin 5% an over the counter medication. so could you answer me please regarding the content and subject material of all the above regarding a petition to have permethrin 5% over the counter please. scabies ransack your home and environment and also run for a place to hide and maybe even in the keys of your computer or typewriter. like i said caroljanice@att.net oh the skin on your scalp is not very thick. true? or false? i would say true.

I have been to 3 doctors, and was told different things. Since I had no symptoms except the itch, I was given Atarax and told to come back if it didn't clear up. I went to another doctor after two weeks, still no rash, so I was sent for for bloodwork because it might (mite, no pun intended), be coming from within my body. Bloodwork came out okay, liver enzymes, electrolytes, sugar, etc. I was given Prednisone and referred to an Allergist, but can't get an appointment until the 24th. In the meantime, I now have some bumps on my stomach and lower area. Also, my fiancÚ had been itching for months, been to doctors, and finally was covered in a rash, EVERYWHERE!!! He has now been diagnosed with Scabies. I have not been diagnosed yet, but will go to the doctor tomorrow. Maybe they will finally be able to help me!!! I believe that my fiancÚ got them in rehab following surgery and I got them from him. Just saying!

That happened to me too. I only had it from my chest down and I reed that you should bath in Tea tree Oil. I already did one treatment of permethrin cream and it never got better so I tried bathing. A day later it was now all over my body. I too reed that they don't go on the face so I was really worried that it wasn't scabies. It was from bathing. It was now from my chest up to my dead. I had it on my face, in my hair and in my nose. What ever you do, DO NOT bath in anything. I reed after that that when bathing the mites float to the top of the water then it clings to the next best thing which was my head. I did a second treatment but instead of 1, 30m tube I used 2, 30m tubes. I think it has worked but I'm not 100% sure so I am going to the doctors today to get a scrap test done to make sure that it is scabies and that they are dead. Fingers crossed X Good luck

How exactly can I get it out my hair if it is in there? Do I just wash it over and over again like clothes. What about my mattress can they live on or in it? Please let me know this is my first time having this.

Have the shortest haircut possible. Remember the eggs are there too.
I have saidthis before --OIL your hair with olive oil or a cheaper one canola oil. Do not use sunflower oil as it does not wash out easily. The other 2 wash out with one shampoo.
Take a hairdryer and it must be a hot one and avoiding your scalp blow dry your hair until the oil is hot .If you feel movement concentrate on that area.Do this morning and evening without fail.
Next buy some honey or you can use (Syrup is cheaper and stickier).Sleep with it with a shower cap. The eggs will stick to the syrup and the scabie which breeds at night will go nowhere.
My hair was so infested that hubby could see the eggs hanging on the back of my hair
Wide parcel tape--brown or clear one if possible .Tape the eggs off your whole body bit by bit--Wrap around your legs and remove immediately. You can see the eggs on the clear tape.
I also found a scabie breeding on the tip of my nose.I put some tea tree oil --just a dab because you need a plaster to stick.
This scabie took 20 minutes to fight its way out of the plaster..
when it stopped moving I removed the plaster and caught it with parcel tape.
I have the evidence in a box so that my stupid doctor can't tell me it must be something else if the meds did not kill it
Even the derm is an asshole. They both let me down by telling me the scabies were gone and I was reinfested.

If you don't want to cut your hair, you could use the following that works, especially in the hair:

This was a mix created by a pharmacist in Hungary. The ingredient names are in Latin. From that, I put together the mix, alka seltzer being acetylsalicylic acid and borax instead of boric acid. Lately, I've been using food grade aloe gel that is available in health food stores and is surprisingly cheap. umauthr mentioned that aloe works well, and it does. I use two alka seltzer tablets, tablespoon of borax, dissolved together in a bit of water, then about a cup of aloe. Mix it up and use everywhere including the hair. It does dry the hair but a conditioner solves that problem.

Why are you recommending this when it doesn't cure anything? maybe you should be on the "Temporary Relief" Forum, Canuckette.

A lot of people have used many variations of this with no real result except wasting time. Maybe some people just accept that being sick with these infections is a lifestyle .

The only thing that worked for me and cured me was ivermectin. You can buy Noromectin by Norbrook in a feed store near you (it costs about $30. There are about 50 doses in the bottle for me. That depends on your weight). at the feed store Get a small syringe too (about $1) to take it out of the bottle. Drink it a glass of water on an empty stomach (either around 3am ir at night).I took for a couple of months. The first month every 2 or 3 days, and the second month every 6 or 7 days. I thought I would never be cured, but Noromectin worked and saved my life. When you take it you'll feel a little sleepy.
I've been cured for a year now. I have my wonderful life back.

I'm so thankful for this site I have just been diagnosed with scabies and I'm so confused and freaking out! if these before but never really knew what it was. the doctor sent me home with topical cream to use, but after reading everybody else's experiences I wonder if those work better than this cream. He prescribed Elimite 5%. any suggestions or advice would be so helpful I have two young kids and scared to death for them to get this

If you've just been diagnosed, you may be able to kill them with the doctor's cream. Try it and if it doesn't work, go back and insist on something else. Those of us who have been treating for a while, didn't get properly diagnosed soon enough or in my case, had other skin issues that masked it.
