I went to the dr today and she also gave me some soap and Benzoate, I applied it on my genital area. Burnt like hell to the point I had to throw cold water on my penis. Reading your guys post makes me so nervous, I hope this works. Is there no pill I can take. the doctor said I should call her in 10 days. now. I really want to cry right now :(

I'm free of scabies but I have post nodular scabies on my scrotum that goes away and comes back. I use a alergy tablet and it goes away. Its so embarrassing.

I AM CURED 100%!
I got scabbies from my workplace. Everyone got it! Literally. Of course the Permitherin cream did NOT work, after the 3rd bottle, i figured that out. I believe it actually spreads it to be honest. Thats when i discovered this site, and few others..
Here is the deal:
-BORAX with every load of laundry, HOT WATER ONLY!
-NEVER wear anything twice.
-Buy real tea tree oil(100% organic) not the pharm one, orange oil,peppermint oil, and witch hazel via health food store, or GNC.
-Put 15 drops of each into an unused spray bottle, with warm water,and 1 cup of witch hazel. i used this spray on everything ie, linens, clothes, shoes, sheets, pillows.
-High heat pillows in dryer for 45 min. ALL CLOTHES BONE DRY!
-I had bedding spray with permitherin in it, which i sprayed on everything before showering, and keep fans out, and AC on high, which is easy when you live in south FL.( BEWARE OF SPRAYING THE PERMITHERIN SPRAY WITH ANIMALS IN HOME!)
- Shower 2-3 times a day! & apply this concoction to effected areas every night and morning:
Purell sanitizer with aleo on body, air dry. I used a clean paper towel, fold it in fours apply 5-10 drops of all oils onto it, and wet with witch hazel, and apply to effected areas. Sleep with little or no clothes on.(helps with smaller loads of laundry)
-3-4 times a week take a bath with: 1/2 bottle of hydrogen peroxide, 20 dropps of each oil, 1 cup of witch hazel, and 2 cups of LISTERINE CITRIS MOUTHWASH. My baths were always piping hot. Warning: IF YOU HAVE DRY, SENSITIVE, OR OPEN LESIONS ON YOUR SKIN BE CAREFUL!!
(AFTER my first bath with formula the ithcing dissapeared completely, and the effected areas were 80% clear!)
-Never use a bath towel more than once!
-Disinfect all areas in home with clorox wipes, lysol, and the spray bottle concoction.
-CHANGE BED LINENS Evert single MORNING! STRAIGHT INTO A PLASTIC BAG & STRAIGHT INTO WASHING MACHINE!
-Apple cider vinegar 3 tbsp 2 times a day, decrease simple carbs, and SUGAR! THESE GUYS FEED ON SUGAR!
-P E R S I S T A N C E is KEY TO RID YOURSELF OF THESE MITES!
- i was taking vit c 500mg once a day along with multivitamins. Substitute all fruit juices for water, and limit sugary fruits.
-I am no doctor but this slew of things most definitely worked for me.

Thank you for specifying exactly how much I need. After bleach baths and sulfur ointment, my skin would keep getting to dry before I would ever finish, because the sulfur ointment was to concentrated and the bleach baths enough said. It worked but to dry, i'm finishing this with tea tree oil bath and applying a layer of 8% sulfur ointment mixed with petroleum jelly and cocoa, which goes down to about a 4% sulfur mix a little more the way I made it. So for anyone having trouble with scabies this is the way i'm getting rid of it. We all know to never say that early but hey this time I think I know for sure, and hey, if it doesn't I guarantee i'll come back to say it didn't. Nobody with scabies wants to hear a half-ass cure.

Sincerely Symptomatic

Very good post. You should have posted this in the "I Am Cured" thread. It is interesting that you said that the horse paste didn't work at all for you, as another poster swears it didn't work for them either. But it has helped many people on this forum. I am wondering if sometimes the paste form does not digest well in the stomach...
Thank you so much for your fantastic post. Everything you said makes so much sense to me. Myself and my partner have both gone to Drs. who have always diagnosed us as having something else other than scabies but now I know why from your post. It makes so much sense. I am going to go straight out on Monday morning to buy 100% tea-tree oil. I got a fungus years ago in my toe and it cured it overnight as well. It's amazing stuff! Thank you very much for your insightful and very very helpful comment.

Had a third night of sleep with pretty much no mite activity. What a blessing. Amazing how good it felt to get a restful night's sleep like a normal person. When I awoke and got out of bed, I squatted and passed a Bic lighter flame under my perianal area and inguinal creases where they love to hang out. Sure enough, I heard a few "crisps" as the mites' exoskeletons where consumed in the flame. Last week I shaved all my body hair, and I mean all of it. That way you know the "crisp" sound is a mite burning up, and not your hair burning, which makes a very similar crisping noise. Has anyone else noticed that the size of the mites changes. At the very beginning before I knew what I had, I felt a few pinpricks here and there but not much crawling at all. When I was most heavily infested they were bigger and stronger, I could feel them hatch out, feel them crawling on me, and once (only once) I caught a big one and saw it on my fingertip. It was very small, a translucent whitish color, and I could see very tiny legs wriggling around. That's the only time I saw one ever. For the last couple of weeks as this has been clearing up, I've had very few crawlers. The remaining mites seem to be very, very tiny. These are the wispy little ones that like to go in my eyes. When these little guys burrow in or hatch, it is very hard to notice. People think they are cured and wonder how they got reinfested. Well, the mites came back because you still had at least a couple of live burrows. As long as there are viable burrows, you will still have the scabies. One thing about the bigger mites, they are real easy to feel and incinerate with your Bic lighter. Oh and it's so satisfying to kill 'em this way!
Wsn't this painful?

I would really like to point out that it do not matter what food you eat as you have it wrong scabies are not blood suckers like fleas they eat you skin to stay alive not your blood do some proper research and you will see that I am right about this

Hello Janice, I have been researching this for days now and came across several informations saying that they feed on skin cells and sebum (secreted by hair follicle glands found right where they infiltrate and dig). It wouldn't be surprising if some of the diet, including taking clove extract would make it to the secreting glands through blood and influence the flavor of the sebum. This is just an opinion and a possible explanation as to why some people feel diet is influential.

Hi Scabies 3! I don't even know what I have for sure. I think I have bird or rodent mites, but am not positive. I could also have geriatric burrowing) scabies from my dentist's - he has a ton of older patients - because my bumps are all mostly on my arms, scalp, and back. You did use the term bite though to describe your bumps. That tells me that you might actually have biting mites which are rodent or bird mites. Although lots of people say the word bite to decribe the feeling of a mite burrowing. I did see a picture of a mite in the hinge of somebody's glasses, but with plastic lenses I don't know what you can use on them. I'm thinking of trying ths: I don't wear my glasses all the time, so sometimes when I put them on I swear there's an itch in my scalp very shortly. I do not want to wreck my lenses so I want to be cautious. Maybe I will set them down in a shoebox on a cloth placed over some boric acid (which is a powder) in the bottom of the shoebox. That should dry them up overnight I hope. Boric Acid is actually even more drying than borax which contains some, and is OTC in the drugstore or in the garden center. Hang in there, we'll figure this out sooner or later.
I thought you couldn't catch animal type scabies??

I'm so confused now. I've had this plague (scabies) for more than six months now and have seen a total of four doctors and one nurse. Two of them have told me it's scabies and the others have no idea and suggested me to seek a dermintolegest.... I've had the perception lyclear, steroid cream, anti fungal cream, erythromycine, eczema cream, tea tree oil baths.... What could I possibly be missing to be rid of these bastards

I did the hot bath with cayenne pepper . I put my whole body and did not last more then five minutes. My manhood was on fire lmao but I must say like the burning compare to the itch or pinprick. I dip my arms and legs at different times till I couldn't take no more. I noticed the areas affected by was completely red while the rest of my skin was normal color. I put some otc ointment and slept ok that night. Next day I did another hot bath but without the cayenne pepper. Rub ointment then shop for the tea oil. The tea oil works wonders and I noticed the rash had disappear some. I still feel the cayenne played a big part in burning some of the mites and eggs. So I may go through this touture one more time. It's the second day that I applied tea oil and it reduced the itching .i rub it down really good so it goes deep into the skin . I may try turmeric mix with olive oil and water to make a paste. You put the paste around the affected area
