I want to help others out there suffering with scabies and not getting the correct information. I've created a completely free help and advice website which I've donated all my tedious research to anyone who wants to find more information. I can also try to answer any questions you may have, the best I can.

i have just bought sulfur cream from dermatech Rx and i have to say it works a bit better than manuka cream in relieving crawling sensations at night. I couldn't get any prescription from doctors for a sulfur shampoo or ointment because they had no idea what is the alternative treatment for scabies when the officially prescribed creams don't work.

My doctor diagnosed me and my baby with scabies in November of last year (2007). We treated with Permethrin once, but I still had horrible itching, although, the day after treatment, the itching was fairly nonexistent. We treated a total of 3x with Permethrin ( my child was 8 weeks old when we started treating ), and one week on sulfur cream. I think we were cured after the first or second try. Seriously, I still have itching now, in April 2008, so I think it takes a while for your skin to get back to normal. My hands and knees still get itchy, but not to that extent that I want to scratch my skin off (anybody ever try that hot water treatment? My GOD, I thought I would never stop moaning, it felt so good!). I imagine my residual itching will go away totally at some point. But, the itching never gets worse, which, if we still had scabies, it would definitely be getting progressively worse again, until eventually, it would again be unbearable, but I'm not experiencing that. FYI: Permethrin makes your skin feel better momentarily because it's a neurotoxin, but you will still experience the itch pretty fiercely for at least a month, if not more, and then there will still be residual itch after that. Expect even the "pin-pricks". You will think you're still infected/infested, but it is just physiological reactions to the decay, and your body's natural response to this affliction. Many of you are cured, but are overtreating to the point of damaging your skin, and creating a bucketload of anxiety to boot. It is highly likely that after two treatments, if you've washed, vacuumed, and tippie-toed around your house like I know most of you have, then it's likely you're cured and just need to ride out the after-effects. You've had live creatures living under your skin for a while, they've left detritus that includes feces and decaying little scabies bodies. There is fallout from that, expect it and RIDE IT OUT! You will never know you're cured unless you stop slathering everything on your body and taking horse Ivermectin and everything known to man, to cure the scabies.
When we used the sulfur cream, it made my skin feel soooooo much better, but sulfur is like permethrin, it has natural properties that will soothe your ravaged skin (unless the preparation is too strong, I burned the crap out of my daughter's face, shouldn't have put it there). So, if you must continue to treat, use the sulfur/vaseline mixture. It will really make you feel better, although you'll stink to high heaven. I still smell the sulfur when I dry my sheets!!
Good luck to you all, and seriously, back off the treatments a little....

right, i agree with you 100% and i've read that all over the forums. but when you find that you're still experiencing outbreaks aside from the itching, well that's something else. lately, i've only been treating in between my weekly dosages with Stromectol from Magicpharma.com , when i'm starting to develop a new pimple. i really don't think that's psychological..but aside from that, i agree with you
Ok, to respond to this: I still get bumps on my hands from time-to-time. So, in addition to still having itching after you've treated yourself to hell and back, YOU MAY STILL GET BUMPS. It freaked me out when the bumps appeared on my hands, and for a while, on my feet, as well. Again, at that point, after treating 3x with Permethrin, and one week with sulfur cream, I decided to stop completely and see what happened. So, here we are, three months later, and while there's still some itching, it has subsided substantially. That's why I suggest the sulfur cream.It makes your skin feel better w/o totally damaging it, and makes you feel like you're doing somthing proactive to boot. Again, when you stop treating, the itching will still be pretty fierce, and you will still be getting bumps. I know it sounds counterintuitive, but you must stop treating and see what happens. Give it a few months. You can always go back to your regimen later, but this is an unusual affliction in that you really don't know for sure if you have it, or something else, and you don't really know when it's "cured" per se. So, give yourself a chance, and trust that you've done a boat load already toward curing yourself, and let your body do the rest. As for the anti-fungal treatment, try it too. I've read that the permethrin creates a pH imbalance on your skin making you more susceptible to fungal infections, therefore the need for anti-fungals after treating for scabies.
To all of you who gave me advice and support while I was going through this nightmare, on top of the baby blues, bless you!! I couldn't have gotten through all of this mess w/o having this virtual support (since my family didn't quite understand the anxiety and discomfort I and the baby were experiencing). Bless you, Bless you, Bless you!!!!!

With all my research I've recently found something from West Africa which had a 100% success rate when used over 5 consecutive days. Google "Lippia Multiflora" it's an essential oil, non toxic. Anyone tried this? It's been used for 100 years in Africa. I'm going to try and find an herbal store which may carry this. A great information site for scabies; www.geocities.com/dhr6878

LB- that is fantastic news! I think I'm in the same boat as you- think I am but don't want to jinx anything. Keep up with the cleaning of yourselves & your environment. Good luck to you & I certainly hope you are indeed cured! Many prayers being sent up for you and all on this forum.

Thanks Me & Baby- it seems every time I'm flipping out about something I read one of your posts & it calms me down. I have very few bumps left, and they are all ones that have been on me pretty much from the beginning. Some of those are fading, even, I think I'm left with two on my collarbone, one on my chest, one at the base of my spine (fading!) and one behind my knee. None of these are new. I did get a 'new' bump on my waist a couple weeks ago, but it is fading as well. Right now all I am doing bodywise is spot treating with Pomada (sulfur). I still borax, lysol, do laundry far too often, spray DeFlea all over the place, etc.
Anyway, thanks for helping calm my mind with your informative posts. And again, so good to hear that you have won the battle!

Save the DeFlea for highest traffic areas like your favorite spot on the sofa where it touches any bare skin, or hands, armrests, in the car your seat belt, where you touch your car seat when getting in and out, the place where you stand or change clothes, by the hamper etc. I've been cutting back on doin the entire couch with good results, and use it more frequently in smaller places. I really don't think mites go far from where you left them! I also, don't go barefoot I think you pick up mites barefoot, too, or wear sox by themselves, I step into washable plastic, crocs, and except in the bathroom I am not barefoot. I even wear Crocs in the middle of the night and keep them like slippers next to my bed. I was always a sox around the house kind of person, but those days are over. In the bathroom there is an ancient marble floor (not beautiful - think Greyhound bus station), but at least it's easy to mop with Citra-Solv or De-Solv-It, orange cleansers that supposedly kill insects and mites (dust mites anyway) naturally, with their orange oil, D-Limone. I do wish DeFlea could be cheaper, but I love it so much that I've started thinking like Elaine on Seinfeld, if an area is DeFlea worthy. I even put a couple of drops of wintergreen oil in it to give it a neutral smell. Basically if it's an area I quickly walk across, I don't treat it with DeFlea than every two or three weeks now. I can't believe how compulsive I am, but now I am doing smaller areas with DeFlea, but lots more often.(Wish they'd have a residual in their product, but like that it's safe for my cat). Pick your places and cover them more frequently. Oh, yeah, like the brushes on your vacuum after you vacuum, because it will get all the mites picked up on those. I do like this product, but now I'm using it more often and small areas.

The only place I've found genuine Ivermectin is in an actual Pharmacy in South America. Canada and U.S. pharmacies do not carry it and certainly don't sell it online. People: Please make a report to www.headlice.org , your local State Health Dept & www.cdc.gov about any outbreak, misdiagnosis and length of time (concerns the amont of others you may have passed this on to) I'm hoping with enough people they will move forward approve a better treatment option not used in the USA but in all other countries. And thus, saving people from ordering bogus (and possibly dangerous)drugs over the internet. I've posted as much free info as possible at www.geocities.com/dhr6878 I wish you luck!!

I just bought more DeFlea yesterday! I love the Elaine reference. I actually don't spray it ALL over, just on my couch (not the whole thing) & the seat/headrest of a small canvas chair in my living room, then on the carpet around my air mattress, and yes, in a high traffic hallway. I spray it on the drivers seat & floor of my car, then my chair & rug area (not entirely) at work. I do think it makes a huge difference & tho I have no pets, enjoy that it is not toxic. Thanks for the great, helpful idea, Welty!

I got my first scabies infestation when I was about 16. I used one of the prescribed lotions and they seemed to go away after a few weeks. I am 32 now and ever since then I have random attacks of them. I work from home and haven't had anyone in my apartment in a good two months, and even then it was my mother and niece paying a visit. Two days ago I noticed the bumps in the webs of my fingers and of course they itch like hell and make me think I'm itching all over. I am applying dermisil and washing everything, vacuuming, etc.

My big question is can these things remain dormant? Something tells me they must! There is no explanation as to why I have had repetitive outbreaks of these things all of my life. I am not an unsanitary person. I do the weekly deep-cleaning on the weekend, every weekend. I clean the bathroom and kitchen with pinesol, I bleach my counters, I vacuum, wash all my clothes and linens.

My dog has been scratching lately but not anymore than usual. She doesnt have fleas but I occasionally see her kick her hind leg up and scratch her neck or gnawing her leg. I wash her bedding once a week as well.

How can I treat my sofa? I can't "wash" it. Would furniture fabric cleaner kill them? Lysol? What?

Please anyone w/ any REAL advice let me know. I've done the teatree oil and oregano oil thing. Yes it keeps itching down but doesn't kill scabies.

I'd also like to say that in the past when I noticed the bumps in the webs of my fingers I would get paranoid. They would itch like hell but a matter of days later they would be gone. That is why I am convinced that these things can remain dormant in your skin over long periods of time.

I almost feel I need a deep radiation treatment all over my body to ensure that these things are killed for good.

Since you have had scabies before, this latest outbreak is from a very recent exposure to sarcoptic mites. From what I've read, these mites can live in the environment for up to 22 days depending on climate conditions. The eggs hatch in 3 to 10 days.

I think your dog may be infested. If you have mites, so does your dog. Who knows if your dog picked them up or you did? but mites spread to all mammal hosts in quick time. Take your dog to a vet and or purchase some Advantage Multi, Revolution or Advocate(available Australia only). Because you identify mites on yourself and your dog is displaying behavior that rings "mites" treat now or be really sorry later.

hi

in the olden days, scabies was cured by having outdoor nude baths and cold baths. When the itches are supressed with other chemical topical creams (iodine, sulfur or mercurial substances etc), they destroy the skin's ability to fight back any bacteria, parasites....making us more susceptible. I try to have two showers (be sure to scrub all over skin too or a bath once every few days., it does relieve the itches more than the creams does. Of course this takes time and patience.

if you are using permithrin, they will stay in your skin for a while making you more susceptible for other skin problems...in future. I've stopped using them after three weeks, because it was opening my skin for secondary bacterial infections, where my skin was lumpy with pus and it was red.

If this is the second time you're having it, the chances are your immune system has been compromised too. There are homopathic drops you can take such as neem leaf natural as i recently just found in the web (three times the potency),i put five drops in a cup of water or juice and drink each day to boost the immune system

hopes this helps,
Casey

Well, US Pharmacies DO carry the Stromectol. BUT; you have to get the prescription from an MD & MAKE SURE the pharmacy is LEGIT. Many places out there are advertising as a US or Canadian pharmacy, selling sugar Viagara Pills & whatever else people are trying to order without prescription because it would be illegal for a reputable pharmacy to send you something by mail without a prescription, it's prohibited by the FDA & they would probably be shut down. I'd be wary of any place trying to make a quick buck out there, you don't know what chemical you're getting. Talk to your doctor & get a prescription. Re; myself: I was in Brazil where I bought 20 packs over the counter. & occasionally I have a friend in Rio buy them & send them up to the States. Mexico border town pharmacy?

THIS IS MY REPLY EMAIL FROM THE CDPH. LET'S REPORT THIS OURSELVES TO THE CDC, WHO, LOCAL HEALTH DEPT, NEWS, & GET THEM TO GIVE US PROPER TREATMENT & A MEDICINE THAT WORKS!!
Thank you for your email describing your current clinical situation and treatment recommendations for scabies.
You suggested that the California Department of Public Health (CDPH)should promote using Ivermectin as a treatment approach for scabies. As you are aware, the use of ivermectin for this purpose is currently under debate. Though CDPH does not make individual treatment recommendations, if a treatment regime is approved by the FDA, CDPH would likely
include it for treatment recommendations pertaining to public health situations such as in long term care facilities or schools. For individual treatment recommendations, a person should see their physician or dermatologist if they have specific questions regarding diagnosis and treatment of any skin abnormalities.
You wondered if CDPH had documented an increase in scabies incidence in California. While scabies is not a reportable condition, localized outbreaks of any condition are reportable. However, the CDPH does not have any records indicating an increase in the number of reports of people afflicted by scabies infestation.
You can find more information on the standard recommendations for scabies and clinical symptoms at the Centers for Disease Control Website www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dpd/parasites/scabies/

In the US, Strometol is carried or can be ordered by most local pharmacies. I got on the phone and found that a local Rite Aid carried it in 3mg tablets. A person with a Rx does not need to go online or worry about not getting pure Stromectol(ivermectin).

The CDC recommends Ivermectin as a first-line scabies treatment. It's up to a MD if they want to write the Rx but they can as off-label drugs are commonly prescribed Millions of humans and perhaps billions of animals(that are slauthered and used or human food) have been safely treated with Ivermectin with is being donated by Merck and Co. to treat millions of people suffering from parasite infections. Lives are being saved and changed. Australia is doing the most research on Ivermectin for the treatment of scabies.

Yes. Thank You! My concern was that people aren't ordering from just anywhere over the internet without prescription. To make sure the pharmacy is an actual liscenced pharmacy before ordering anything from them. BEST if they have a prescription & can walk into a Rite Aid or CVS.. I had to practically BEG my doctor for a prescription for Permethrin & he said, no absolutely not for the Ivermectin which is why I got it from South America. I think they have to justify writing a script for Ivermectin which isn't an approved use for scabies(in the USA) WHich is what I'm hoping with enough people they will take note & change this. Cheers for the research.

yeah i'm a huge fan of the ivermectin tablets myself. they've helped me out a lot, but what sucks is that that when new eggs hatch you need to pop another pill. i try not to take more than 12 mg a week since i weigh 170, but when those new ones hatch i'm not given much of a choice. so i'm taking about 24 mg a week instead of 12. good news is the crusting had dropped big time. my feet looked pretty nasty, but now i'm seriously able to go sleep a lot more comfortably w/out feeling the bastards crawling all over. i use to wondering if the crawling is psychological, but i've recently concluded that it isn't.

http://www.emedicine.com/EMERG/topic517.htm I just located this website from a doctor on the east coast which I want to share with you all. Very informative (except for not mentioning to treat head & face & behind ears also) But some good topics on there, some things which I hadn't read about previously. I'm thinking to write to him for additional information. I'm also going to contact an epedemiologist who specializes in this. I'll let you know!
