Me, Patty and BenG took him out in February. We wrapped his body in a carpet and threw him over the docks into the ocean. But, first we covered his body in DE and Grape seed oil, and I think he smothered or something. I can't remember exactly. Since then, we have not heard from him.
His solution would probably work for the vanilla variety of human scabies. And, also, if you are young enough with a good immunity, but, for us long time sufferers.... well, we just had to do it. Sorry.

How long have you been dealing with them? They do survive normal washing of clothes..........

That is so true. The water should be 130 degrees. Another thing that helps is rinsing the clothes in scalding hot water, too.
And not just a cold, cool, or warm rinse cycle.

maybe you can fill washer up with hot water and if not the right temp. boil water on stove and pour in your washer. I did that and my water was very hot.

Hi

I boil all my clothes in a big steamer pot with 5 gallons of water with 2 brick on the clothes to wiegh them down and 2 clorox bottles on the lid to wiegh the lid down because the clothes float when boiled. All my clothes are cotton, polyester shrivels when you boil it
I use baking soda 1-2 tbls in my boots then clap the boots together and they never live in my boots, baking soda is highly caustic,if you get it in your eyes you will find out fast, it burns like fire, I dust the house with it with a rose dust poofer, it works

God bless you , Bill

Hi Bill,
Good to hear from you again. I'll take your advice about baking soda, except that I'll have to buy some boots I guess:) Are you still free of them?

I am not a doctor just someone suffering like most of you. I am not going to say this is a 100% cure, however, I will say the person who wrote the website says using clove oil is a prescribed method proven to work for someone with scabies. The website is http://www.topix.com/forum/health/scabies/THU...
The title is Recent Clinical Study proves Clove Oil Kills Scabies!
I am not Vann. I am not a doctor. I am a sufferrer like probably most of the people here. However, if you are intereted check here. I will also admit it's almost impossible for me to find clove oil peronally but if it can help someone else I just want to throw it out there as a viable option. Sorrry if this is off topic to the Vann Discussion.
PS does anyone know what you can use to ensure that scabies does not get into your hair when you are no longer being prescribed permetherine?

For what its worth, I tried at least a dozen remedies over a 6 month course. At the 4 month mark, I finally tried Prem. It worked better than sulfur, but unless applied daily, it would not work and I didn't want to over treat.
After trying Sulfur - some success but limtied, I pushed all treatments aside (included daily laundry_
I used DE, which is the equivalent of dirt (but don't breath it in, the little jaged particles can get caught in your lungs for an indefinite period of time).
DE rubbed all over the body in a light oily base will KILL scabies.
It worked for me. After 8 months of hell, I was finally cured...even after I quite stinky sulfer soaps, baths with bleach, etc. Nothing worked permanently.
I'm cured, but I'm still going to use a DE and Grapeseed Oil home blend unlit all scars are healed and until this is a distant memory.
A relapse is too big of a risk. I'm now putting DE in my daily lotion routine. It works.
PROS
It cures scabies, and in a pretty quick timeframe
CONS
Drying to the skin
There is an "off" dirt like earth "aroma", although not offensive or loud.
Don't breath it in. you don't want these scratchy mico particals sticking to your lungs

So the DE does/can work?af I'm debating on trying it after some of the responses on the forums. Kinda skeptical since some threads say it works and others don't such as this one:
http://www.topix.com/forum/health/scabies/TIU...

Anyway I think I'll just try it and find out if it will work for me, I was just worried about inhaling it or having it on my skin while I workout since I would be breathing heavier and I don't want that stuff in my lungs. Thanks for the info

If you lay it down gently (you can use a flour sifter to do it) then you should be fine. But when you go to vacuum it up, that's when it gets to flying around in the air. It took me 3 or 4 days to vacuum the stuff up in 2 rooms. Also, powders like DE and Borax have a tendency to clog the vacuum. Could be an expensive treatment if you end up having to buy a new one. I had too. But I also took apart my old one (with a screwdriver) and cleaned all the parts and put it back together again, and it works now. But wow, what a hassle and it didn't cure me.

Didn't cure me either but made a bid difference over the long run in keeping the population down in my hair and in the carpet. I have put it down on the carpet then flea powder with growth inhibitor that makes insects sterile.

I rub it all over my hands and under finger nails when putting dirty cloths into the washer. I put some in grape seed oil then in my hair. I wish it was a cure but I find it to do a good job of keeping the population down.

I also sprinkle it in my bedding. I would NEVER go without DE as part of my arsenal.

It does clog vacuums but I find if I sprinkle it on to the carpet, beat it with a flip-flop till its patted down deep into the carpet, it does not clog up so fast. This also create a faint and fine smoke cloud of dust which I welcome as it covers the chairs, keyboards and table tops.

Guys,
I just saw a plaque at a gift shop that covers Vann's way of thinking.
It is better to ask stupid questions than it is to admit I was wrong.
I think that says it all !

P.S. Joe...No male monkey and grapeseed oil ???
Patty you and Ben are so rude. Maybe your hateful rude attitudes are why you are infested or maybe because you two are straight up nasty. Just because something didn't work for you doesn't mean it doesn't work. God knows how much crud you carry around on you. Any options are better than none. Stay off of helpful posts idiots~@

why are you messing around here Missy Denver? don't you have anything better to do than reading vann's b.s. grapeseed oil and diatamaceous earth dirt thread? not a proven cure. doesn't help with scabies. doesn't cure scabies. it's a scam that you guys push the DE all over this forum, so why are you on here effing around with it? the reason you guys post stuff on these threads is so that it brings it to people's attention, and then they BUY the product....

you absolutely have a financial interest in these scams, Fred. For sure....

Remember, the true cure for scabies is Stromectol ivermectin tablets, used in conjunction with a good topical, like Elimite Permethrin Cream 5%.

This will help people stay away from spending money that they don't really have on useless things like bacon grease and pixie dust and "sulphur soap."

How much do you charge for selling DIRT to these people? It doesn't help with scabies. Doesn't cure. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves. DE causes lung damage. The mites will die out on their own. You don't have to dust your entire home with something that only causes clogged vacuum cleaners, makes your pets sick, gets into your already fragile lungs. Stop posting nonsense like this.
