I had scabies on my body that were easily cured w/ perm. Now my face is breaking out badly with red pimples that have a pronouned white spec in the middle (much like an itchy whitehead). Outside of scabies the only other item I could think of that would cause this would be that I used sulfur soap on my face a few weeks prior. My major question is:

1) If you've had scabies on your face did you have the white spec in the middle of the pimple??

PLEASE HELP, I'VE BEEN SO MISERABLE W/ THIS FOR THE PAST MONTH AND MY FACE LOOKS SO BAD!!!

Have you used the permethrin cream on your face? Some doctors say to apply from the neck down, but if you read this forum, many have had scabies on the face and in the hair. It will not hurt you to apply above the neck. Scabies can appear in different ways on your skin. If this breakout on your face itches, I would apply the cream and see what happens.

yeah I was told not to apply above the neckline. Now it's been so long that just the perm prob won't do the trick. I'm quite confident in the ivermectin/perm combo and hoping to get ahold of iver by monday.

I do have the horsepaste but does anyone know where to buy legitimate elimite perm and ivermectin?(human grade, not magicpharma bc they're apparently scammers)

Appreciate the reply

If the permethrin worked on the rest of you, I would use that first. I noticed you can get cattle pour on ivermectin on ebay as well, but you have to do your research as how to mix it for your body weight. I hear topical works too. Also read the Imidacloprid thread from the beginning.

Its more than likely they have nested on your scalp if they are on your face. Perm cream is too thick for the scalp. I was treating my body for weeks only to realise they moved to my scalp. I also had bites on my face. In the end I was guided to the Imidacloprid thread on the scabies forum and followed that protocol which includes scalp and face. They are gone now. Pay attention to your scalp. Scabie mites will just move to an area where there is no treatment.

^ Thanks for the advice

I thought imidacloprid couldn't be used on the face or scalp too??? How much did you rub on your face and scalp??

What's up fightingbugz???? What do you want to use? Do you want to use the permethrin and ivermectin or now are you thinking of using the imidacloprid/permethrin/carrie r oil combination? Make up your mind, honey.... and get you meds straight.....
You want to get legitimate ivermectin and permethrin? THEN GO TO A LEGITIMATE DOCTOR WHO WILL PRESCRIBE THESE MEDS AND WALK INTO A legitimate pharmacy and plop down your big hard-earned bucks.
You mentioned you have the horsepaste... right? Well, then USE IT. How much does that cost? About eight bucks per tube, which is about 6 doses? I'm doing the math here. Are you doing the math?
Let's talk ADVANTIX/imidacloprid.... you want to use this on your face and scalp, right? So, I don't know, let's see. You get the largest dosage they have for big azz dogs, and you open up the pippette, you mix it with some carrier oil, like olive oil or such, and you rub it all over your face and scalp. There, feel better now? Good, get busy now. Hope this helps....

^^^ Haha, I love it

"hunny", I've been using doctor prescribed iver and permethrin. Its helping but hasn't quite cured yet. And yes I do have the horsepaste, but considering it's for HORSES I'd like to use it as a last ditch effort. I know my doc will eventually stop the flow of iver and perm so that is when I'll "pop the cork" on the horsepaste. So far I've taken 2 does of Merck Iver and 2 neck down applications of perm. I appreciate your "sh-it or get off the pot" mentality, but right now I'm just gathering data

In my experience, sulfur soap and other sulfur products cause dryness and some flaking of the skin, but not red bumps. I would be more suspicious of scabies if I saw red bumps.

Scabies can infect the face. It is safe to use Permethrin cream on the face. Also Derbac M lotion, which is malathion, can be used on the face. Also Pomada de Azufre, which is a 10% sulfur ointment, can be used on the face.

Instead of treating first the body, then the face, then the scalp, etc., it's best to treat them all at once. Otherwise, the mites just move.

You can buy permethrin cream from Australian pharmacies (brand name Lyclear). Or, with a prescription in the US (you don't say where you are).

I would try to get more Permethrin from your doctor and use in combination with Ivermectin, and this time treat from top of head to soles of feet (including face).

I used Advantix 50/50 diluted with grapeseed oil on my body and face and 1 whole tube of Advantix undiluted on my scalp. They had made their main base on my scalp so I did a full assault on them in that area.

Also Advantix is 45% permethrin not 5% like the prescribed cream.

you are not doing anything here on this forum, but messing with people. you are full of it. now wipe yourself and get off the pot.
your story sounds "off," like many of the posts on this forum. you can gather all the data you WANT.....
My story sounds "off"??? Ok, whatever you say Spain. BTW guys and gals, took some ivercare 1.87% paste and I'm still having really bad indigestion. I would advise against this. My doc gave me 2 doses of ivermectin pills and I didn't have any reactions. End of the day.....get the pills, they're worth it

I have to tell you that "I" thought that I had them on my face too but not sure any more. I'd really suggest you go in to some Dermotologists office(s), whatever it takes and find one that can give you a sample of Metro-Gel. I was diagnosed with having Rosacea long before I had to deal with a horrific episode of what "I" believe was Norwegian Scabies. Anyway, they sure looked the same on my face pretty much but some did look like I could squeeze out crap from them too and this stuff cleared up my face in 2 days and it was a real mess! Rosacea itches and before the scabies, if I went out in the sun or sweat much, my face would look awful! It itches too and if you have a reaction to Permethrin, you could have a allergy reaction on your face. For the record, I believe I had the horrific, intense, relentless itch of scabies and that the 4 diff treatments I did killed them and was left with post scabies and the reaction of itching from using the Permethrin that could last a very long time. Just an update, I broke out with the scabies Feb 12, 2011 and believe that I have a whole new thing that itches every day "some" but is not relentless, just ugly and gross to think about. I had a larvae come out of a place I scratched on my leg.Then a few days after, a "fly" fell out from my clothes on to the floor that would have fit into one of the papuals, can't spell it. Never seen one like this before, only maggets and baby flies. YUK..I put it in alcohol in a pill bottle. Looks like it's in a fetal position..seriously. I've also had a baby spider crawl out a couple of different times so needless to say;I could throw up just thinking about it all! So sick, so gross and so very hard to believe! I'm being seen at the mcv hospital/clinic 8/18 for the docs to put their heads together and figure out this anomaly per one of the docs. One biopsy from my arm showed there was a bug in it but it's gone, then same thing from my leg and most likely from the arachnea family which could include scabies? I still believe the entomologist whom did the diagnoses on the findings quite possibly never considered it to be "a fly" in my body, MY SKIN! I was SO appaulded and distressed when the larvae came out that I didn't think about a way to actually preserve it and wrapped it in clear scotch tape. It was about an inch long and shrunk down really small and dryed out. I took it in to a pharmacist and asked if he'd give me his guess as to what it looked like to him and he said it looked like a fly. I freaked and said, "Oh no, that came out of my leg!" He apologized after he laughed. So, hopefully I don't have more insects nesting in me besides the fly. Not sure of what type and sure hope NOT a spider!! I am clean and the place that I live is clean. A nice house that I rent a bedroom in so it really has baffled me as well. My immune system isn't good! I do know that I have been over a young couple's house whom don't care about getting their garbage out on garbage day or put the crap in the large garbage can instead of against the house out of pure laziness and being slobs in my opinion! I hope sharing this thought with them and how I have suffered will influence them to be cleaner young adults! Anyway, try to get ahold of the sample tube of Metro-gel and put it on real sparingly and include part of your neck and ears. It doesn't take much.I just have a feeling that it will help you. Good luck...Pat1153
