I have been free of this crap for almost six months. I have fought the battles. Arm and hammer did the best for me along with sulfer soap. I was free. I put on a ballcap last weekend I haven't worn in almost a year. Guess what? I am getting totally ate up again. I washed this ballcap in hot water and everything. This crap is not scabies. Now I get new bites and major acne. The biggest zits you could imagine. Now I'm washing everything again, throwing things away, etc. Fortunately, I don't have much to throw away anymore.

HugHg,
I suggest using the non-toxic and so fast & easy cure of Food Grade 100% pure Diatomacious Earth. It kills every kind of mite, lice, flea, bedbug, etc soon after contact. Simply make them crawl through the DE and they are soon GONE. Complete details at this thread:

Some other ideas for a quick start since they are on your head:
1) Sam, "Listerine original in hair all night
2) Sam, "Clearasil Adult Acne tube, I swear kills the mites. I had them really bad on my face too.
3) Sam, "vinyl pillow covers, Wipe them with bleach or alcohol every day with paper towels.

Pokadot Patty,"I no longer have scabies. Got rid of them with Dog ear mite medicine (Pyrethrins .05% Piperonyl Butoxide Technical .50) applied after bath and left on until next bath (once a day). Repeated every 3 days. Only applied 3 times and then spot treated (just to be sure)."

Polkadot Patty,"Bird mites are different. No hard bites. More like a stinging or tiny pin prick. They get in your hair.....100 proof grain alcohol (the kind you can drink) applied neat and left on 20 minutes before washing out will have them gone after 2 or 3 treatments."

Best of luck to you & please do keep us informed,
Vann

You are right. You don't have scabies. A sarcoptic mite cannot live any longer than 30 days, at the most. But, since you got rid of them a while back, stick with that treatment. Some bird mites live longer than 8 months without a host. You say you have really big "zits." This sounds like morgellons, to me. You learned your lesson from an item of clothing. So, you will need to concentrate on your environment, too.
