By the way, recently, I found Advantix is avaible in Chinese mailand(Bayer sells the UK version Advantix in China), So I think it must be avaible in Hongkong too. You can go to Bayer's website to contact the Bayer animal care for the information where you can get the Advantix in Hongkong.

Angel,
If you like you can click on my profile, see above, RK in the house
Give me your email and I can send more information
By the way, I want to point out that TSD and RUIn used Advantage/Advantix with Imidacloprid.
In the "British head lice..." article, it stated that 30 of 50 head lice were killed with 10% imidacloprid, so they decided to use 20% in their study. 30 of 50 lice killed in the lab, in vitro.
W Fipronil, 50 of 53 head lice were killed with 12 percent fipronil. IN the dog mange medication Frontline, they use 10% fipronil.
This could explain why Ruin did not have success with imidacloprid. Remember how TSD kept high levels of Ivermectin in his blood by taking it every other day...?
Caveat emptor, this in no way is to be tried except by me. One makes one's own decisions and takes one's own risks.
I need to sign up to the Topix community then I can send you message. But I failed the sign up for several times, I will keep trying.

What TSD used is Advantage-standard, he/she did not use Advantix. It seems that Ruin did not make it very clear that what he/she used is Advantage or Advantix.

In TSD's case, although TSD kept high levels of Ivermectin in his blood by taking it .... I think the key contributor for the cure is IMID, not Ivermectin, because the great difference was made only after his IMID treatment

Angel,
When you did the six weeks, did you use Advantix only or did you do topicals such as BB, Perm, Sulfur every day that you didn't put on the aDvantix?
Also, when you put on the advantix, did you use anything else, any other drug or topical at the same time or if not at the same exact time, concurrently?
Just Anyone
I did not use anything else during/before/after the Advantix treatment. 1.5 month before the Advantix I did the Advantage.

Now I'm not using any scabicide, just waiting to see the outcome, I do not want to confuse the situation.

If it has already been 6 weeks, going on 7, I think you are fine now.

I hope that you are.

Just Anyone,

The Advantix treatment is the most effective one I have done. But if the symptoms have not disappeared and the skin has not healed, it is hard to tell the outcome. How long it takes for the healing depends on the severity your skin are damaged.

By the way, I have signed up to Topix and sent you a message with my email.

Advantix which is Imidacloprid 8.8% and Permethrin 44%( which I water down with grapeseed oil, I use it 50-50, 50% grapeseed ) is the only thing that has worked for me.

I used Iver, which never seemed to work, I even used Iver 22 consecutive days.

Sulfur with lotion ( 20-25%) following Phoenix 62's formula but most importantly I used acqueous cream and lotion with sulfur, aqueous cream soaks into your skin to prevent dry out. You can buy small tubs of aqueous cream at any local RX or drugstore.

The orig. Phoenix 62's formula dried out my skin after 7 days. I have bad bad red, dried peeling skin.

Anyways, the Advantix ( blue ) exposed red areas with mites all over my body, something that the sulfur solution never did. The sulfur simply took off the surface mites but never did penetrate deeper and kill the burrows.

After advantix ( I used it 8-10 straight days, read some to the academic journal articles on Imidacloprid, they say supposedly that it has low toxicity ).

So it did not work for me after 24 hours application, I did this about 5 times, though it killed the ones in my feet.

I did something like a day 1, day 4, day 7 and day 11 application(s) leaving it on from 24-48 hours each time. This killed what was in the feet but not elsewhere.

I don't think I am in the clear yet, I am still paranoid and scared as hell. But i have intense itching and red marks, with red dots and burroghs that showed up from both armpits to my groin area, hip, side of the waist.

This is something that was never exposed by the sulfur treatment. I have tried and used everything perm, BB, bleach baths, borax solution.

This finally worked but let's see if it can eradicate it permanently and forever.

The British Head lice article posted on page 1 or 2 of this thread says in the last paragraph that imidcloprid has low toxicity. Also it says that if used in conjunction ( if applied that is ) with olive oil, the effectiveness is higher.

If nothing else is working for you, then Caveat emptor ( let the buyer beware )

My two cents,

Has anyone else tried this?

My two cents,
i have had scabies Fr. 3 years and have tried many things to cure my scabies how i hate that word but finally i got hooked up with sulphur at 10% soap cream and powder this works if you have a so called scabies rash put the sulphur cream on the rash and the rash i.e. the scabies will go away sulphur kills scabies its that simple as I said i have had scabies for 3 years I have tried many things try sulphur try sulphur cream 10% it is deadly to scabies you will sleep well that night but even sulphur is a process you must keep it up it does not kill the eggs so remain diligent remain vigilant spell check

hi, i am new here. i picked up a nasty case of scabies on vacation. i have used lindane 4 times, permethrin once, and apply tea tree oil every single day.. no results that last. my doctor gave me cipro and anti biotic creams thinking there was some skin infection. she even gave me clotrimazole cream for thrush. i really want to try advantix. i am 51 years old, weigh about 125 lbs, and in good health otherwise. the scabies is heavy on my torso (and spreading fast), and concentrated in the genital area, especially the creases where the thigh meets the torso. is it safe to use advantix in the genital area? any other suggestions? somebody please help. this thing is taking over so i cannot even concentrate on my family or work.

Try the phoenix 62's sulfur with lotion and aqueous cream first is my recommendation.

But if you want to go for this, then use it and follow the instructions, I always mixed it with olive oil. You can do it days 1, 3, 7, 10 or just once a week like what TSD did.

If it is really bad, you can follow my formula but that is quite a bit tougher.

NeedHelp,

Leave the advantix on for at least 2 days. You will have to leave it on the hair too.

It smells like chemicals but the pesticide/whatever you want to call it seems to penetrate deeply.

I happened to do 4 days segments ( not bath show for 4 days ). Day 1 put it on, day 2 or day 3 a second dose, then if still itchy, day 3 third dose, wait til day 4 take a shower.

I washed my hair every 2 days. Use with grapeseed oil or olive oil ( not the thick but the thinned out grapeseed oil or the thin olive oil otherwise, the hair will be a mess and then the pesticide has to work against the ingredients in the olive oil instead of the oil simply being a transmitter.

Ivermectin works well, use Advantix and do Iver at the same time. The British head lice article says Imidacloprid used with olive oil increased it effectiveness. Olive oil in the skin when using Iver, it really increases Iver's effectiveness because it simply acts as extra sebum in the skin. Iver will secret and stay active in the skin longer.

Just anyone

thank you, you very kind and wonderful people.
i used advantix last night. i was kind of scared to, but the scabies was getting unbearable. although i have not applied it to my hair and face. i was too nervous to do that. does it burn up the scalp? i do not have any symptoms at all on my face and head. i bought some olive oil, but since it seemed too thick, i applied advantix directly to my entire body. i have taken the day off from work today, so i can leave it on till sunday if necessary.'just anyone', i am going to apply advantix once a week, and 10% sulfur cream every day all over. do you think that will do the job? i am now going on for 3 months with the scabies. what do you think?
with advantix, for the very first time since i got the scabies itch, i slept peacefully through the night without going crazy. i cannot thank all of you enough. i almost feel like putting it on every night.
i have not used any ivermectin yet. my doctor is willing to give me a prescription, and i know a good site where i can get it online, but all shipping times are messed up due to bad weather. does the iver have any bad side effects? should i start using it right away, or wait a bit and see if sulfur and advantix do the job?
any help will be really appreciated. i am so grateful for this site.

one more thing.
will i feel itchy, that is, will the symptoms continue for some time even with my using advantix? i mean, after i bathe?
i have not had any black or blue patches like TSD did. does that mean advantix is not working deep inside where the mites are? i am sorry, but i have been such a nervous wreck with this problem. it is hard to believe there is a permanent solution.
