From FED UP from the thread called "Beating Scabies"
I read a lot of posts that talk about the mites and the eggs, but that isn't exactly what happens and you have to target the different stages,this from an entomology website after which i will outline a plan for success. you want to beat it? then read it.
"The life cycle of the mite occurs over 10-17 days. Newly mated females take an hour to burrow into the outer layer of skin and excavates a tunnel. The mite lays her 2-3 eggs each day. Each tunnel contains only one female, her eggs and feces. After 48 hours the eggs hatch and the larval stages mite dig their way to the surface of the skin, where they immediately burrow. This burrow may only be a short distance into the skin to moult to the next stage. Larval and nymphal stages remain in these moulting pockets before moulting to the adult stage. Newly moulted male and female mites construct short burrows <1mm before mating.
After fertilization, female mites wander on the skin to seek a suitable site for a permanent burrow, the transfer of a female to another host at this stage will initiate a new infection. Female mites rarely leave their burrows, and if removed by scratching and remain undamaged, they will attempt to burrow again. During an infection the number of mites increases rapidly, then drops off, leaving infected persons with a relatively stable mite population of 15-20 females."
O.K. here is what works, target the female mites with Ivermectin, they are the deepest ones.
I had good luck with www.drugsmonster.com , buy enough so that you don't cut yourself short . You will be starting a regimen when it arrives. I dosed at 280mcg/Kg which is a little higher than the 200/kg but well within safety range.Ivermectin on day 1,2,4,7,14,21,28.on an empty stomach when you get up. If you feel something crawling it's a female because the nymphs are too small and don't go far until they are mature.
Until the ivermectin arrives keep up with the baths and spot treating, you want to keep the population down.
For the nymphs take a hot bath every morning with tea tree oil ,$8 for 2oz at walmart, buy a few bottles. if you put straight tea tree oil in your bath it will float on top and get on your skin straight when you get in , it's strong so I mixed equal parts of dawn blue dishwashing liquid and stir it up then add to hot water , it works really well.
Stay in the tub for an hour , I freshened the hot water and added more tea tree during. Loofa and scrub your skin to get at the nymphs and kill whatever it gets to and relieve a lot of itching from the debris left in the skin. Check the tub after it drained and you can see the dead mites.
After your bath wait about 15 min and these suckers will start to run because you've woken up the young females and they are making a break for it. Apply a topical scabicide at this point all over your body including scalp. Here is what I used. benzyl benzoate mixed with tea tree oil and clove oil. Sardex is available from amazon cheapest it is 29% benzyl benzoate, it comes in a spray can and i had no problem spraying it into a glass measuring cup. 4 parts sardex , 1 part tea tree oil 1 part clove oil. Rub it all over and donít get it in your eyes. It might sting a bit which means itís hitting the bullseye.
Spot treat any time you feel crawling or biting , you must kill all females.
I also used Nix with 1% permethrin every day at bedtime all over , I know the Elimite is 5% but thatís because itís designed to get at the deep burrowed females and you are killing them with Iver, it will kill any night time adventurers and it is a lot less toxic than the 5%. Available at your grocery store, 2 bottles for $15 and 1 bottle coats before bed.
Of coarse clean your environment but realize that they are mostly on you.
I hope this helps , after 6 months, losing my job, draining my bank account and getting crusted on my back and getting them in my scalp this worked for me.

Oh please is there anyone who can help me? I have five kids and now have contracted this from one of my sons friends and one of my children is immunosuprresed because she had a heart transplant at nineteen months old. My pediatrician don't know jack crap because believe it or not he told me i only had to treat my son. i didn't have to treat anybody else unless they came down with symptoms. I have more common sense than that! We did a round of treatment. had to trick the doctors nurse into giving us enough to treat :/ 5 percent permethrin cream two times in one night left on eight hours each time new clothing each time. i even sprayed down our van with lice spray 5 % permethrin in it. AND WE TREATED in a hotel with two different rooms. reated in one room slept in the other. the next night we went to a diff3erent hotel. then my boyfriend came in and we spent the next two nights in a THIRD HOTEL and this crap is still not gone. I did not go home until four days after treatment and my son still got this crap back!what the f~~K!

read my comments on "has anyone ever seen the mite under skin"

Dr.s know nothing at all about this. I spent a lot of money on a lot of things and cleaned like a mad woman... Don't waste your money on hotels. Read read and read on this forum and take the information you find worthwhile. Everyone in contact absolutely has to be treated. It is said this is contagious before symptoms even appear isn't that just great?. Read about it on medical entomologist sites. Even they don't have enough knowledge about it they just think they do.

RE: "it seems that the mites i had were surviving the washer/dryer, so i kept on, and may still get re infested. i'm still doing home remedies to keep things at bay..."
I had the same problem, I would end up running one load of laundry in a dryer for the whole day, and even that was not enough.
This is what I use now and works for me, it will seem like over kill, but I don't care it works: I made sure that my water temperature was at 140 F. I had to adjust my water heater(check with the company that makes yours to find out how to do it, mine had two separate settings that had to be adjusted). I then run the cold water out of the pipes in the nearest tap (collect water for garden??), I then also collect the first fill of the cold water that goes into the washer. Then I put in two doses of Borax, 1.5-2 doses of detergent and throw in the clothes. When the water is to the top, I then put in two squirts of straight 50/50 tee-tree/eucalyptus oil (on both sides of the agitator); this kills the ones that float up to the top of the water and sometimes are able to survive (who knows how?). I then dry on high for several cycles. I also bag all clothes after I take them out of the dryer. This helps keep them clean from the environment, and also in my case lets me know if they got totally clean in the first place, as I will feel them on me when I put the clothes on.
Give it a try, for me the temperature and the oil was crucial - it made a big difference.
I just took my first dose of Ivermectin yesterday, and was a little bit dizzy the whole day. Did anyone else feel this?
God Bless,

God Bless,
Ive been fighting the battle for over a year now and in that time I have learned a lot and still learning. I am now at the point where i don't have any bites or prickly feelings minimal itching but guess what I know for a fact they are stil there building up their colony. How do I know? My hands were the most troublesome and I have been treating them diligently for an hour every day with various products. I mix 1 tbsp of grapeseed oil with 5 drops of oregano oil, plaster it on both hands so its dripping more or less and massage it in too my hands for an hr whilts watching tv and inspecting my nands and fingers with magnifying glass. There is no itch but guess what? they are still coming out after an hr of doing this I see the black specks and see and feel the hard eggs coming out also. I have suspected this for awhile now, with my own testing to see if they are there as my one hand wasnt itching but when I put the oil solution on I could see them coming out after awhile. Then recently by chance I came across this article on ehow on scabies and a paragraph in it was a real light bulb moment and confirmed what i suspected- it said:

When the larval and adult scabies burrow into the skin, they and their eggs stimulate delayed immune system responses including itching and rash. The mites have evolved to avoid triggering the response until established on a host.

So there you have it, why we are having such a hard time getting cured is because we think we are cured with no itching etc. and we quit treating and they build up again. I think we have to continue the treatment even after signs are gone for at least another 2- 3 months but I will do it even longer and continue to test for them as well.

Hi everyone

I thought I would share my scabies story with you all.

Starting in October my boyfriend and I both started getting small bumps that felt like bug bites randomly on our bodies, they would itch badly then go away for a while, then reappear, but more widespread. By the end of November (so about 2 months)we were both covered, mostly upper thighs, hands, stomach, and ankles. After a lot of late night scratching I finally went to the doctor who thought it might be scabies.

We both did the whole permithrin 5%, washed everything and didn't touch each other for a couple of days. After the first treatment, I didn't think it worked because I was itching more then ever. We did a second treatment a week later.

Slowly... and I mean very slowly, the bumps started going away and the itching ceased. I could tell the difference and that I was in "post scabies" because the itching was much less severe and would stop once I scratched a bit, it never kept me up at night.

I also got a lot of water blisters and some "irritation dermatitis" and my pre exsisting exzema flared up due to the harsh pesticides, which I am still dealing with. Compared to the scabies this is nothing!

I recommend keeping on top of a good exfoliation and moisturizing routine to keep your skin at its best while waiting for the scabies to clear.

It WILL go away. Make sure you aren't over medicating yourself. Looking back I'm pretty sure that I was cured in 1 treatment of the permithrin but I did it twice because I was paranoid.

It has been 2 months since my original treatment and I can say that I am 100% cured. It takes time! you have to be patient!

I just wanted to say that I am cured from the scabies. Have not had a problem since July 2011. Although I am dealing with the staph infection left from the whole ordeal. My doctors have tried everything to clear the staph, no luck. I am trying something that my herbalist suggested to see if it will help.(Cataplex A-C)

YES there is hope out there. Sulfur will stop the biting and itching. You have to leave it on for days without showering, you may stink but you won't feel the biting and itching. It dries your skin and hair. This was my first relief from all of the madness.

When you do the Premethrin treatment, you need to do after a shower when your skin is damp, slightly dab a towel on your skin, then start at the ankles and move your way up the body, do your face, slightly inside your nose, inside of ears, and your whole scalp, then sit down and do your feet last so as not to wear off the medication while applying to the rest of your body. A tube of Premethrin, if applied to wet skin will go a lot further, you may even get 3 treatments from a tube. BIG MISTAKE IS NOT DOING MY SCALP, FACE AND BOTTOMS OF MY FEET. Repeat in 4 days. Don't wait for 7 days. LEAVE ON FOR 24 HOURS before showering.

Must have bedbug cover for matress that zips closed. Also on your pillow as well. I found it easier to get plastic covers so you can wipe down with water and bleach,daily. Wash linens daily. Do not wear any clothes you wore previously while contaminated. Wash and dry any clothes you wore before and store in plastic bags for about a month.

Treat your eye glasses as well. DO NOT WEAR JEWERLY

I also put plastic drop clothes on my fabric furniture then covered with a flat sheet that could be washed daily.

I used 15 tubes of Premethrin 5% cream. I had a really bad case of scabies I got from the hospital when I had my surgery in December 2010.

I tried the bleach spray down after my showers then air dried, and started using a blow dryer to dry my body off quicker. It did bring down the numbers. But would not kill the scabies. DO NOT DO BLEACH BATHS, it only spreads the problems.

The dog dip for the sulfur bath worked wonders but did not kill off the scabies. I only did 2 treatments. It did give me peace of mind for the first time in months. Stops the biting and itching.

The antibiotics did not kill off the scabies.

The Steroids did not kill off the scabies.

The bleach bath seemed to spread the scabies and did not kill off the scabies. Best to do a spray down with 10% bleach to 90 % water, blow dry afterwards.

The Advantix did not kill off the scabies.

The Stomectrol did not kill off the scabie, Docs only gave me 1 treatment of this, or it may have worked, this is Ivermectin.

The special creams made by the pharmacy did not kill off the scabies.

I have done everything on the market.

When you have no treatment on, I would suggest at least 2 showers a day.

Get white linens and towels so that you can bleach them and dry on high in the dryer.

I really don't know what actually killed off the scabies since I did so many different treatments. But my final treatment of the Premethrin 5% cream, left my enviroment for 8 days, came home and no more problems.

You have to remember that the Premethrin will make you have the same sensations as if you have scabies, but the difference will be in the track marks. If no new tracks you may be cured.

If you catch this when it first starts, you may only have to do a couple of treatments. Mine was all over my body and it was really bad.

Good luck to all, I know what a night mare this was and it will never be one I forget.

My husband and I suffered through this a couple of years ago. He went to a doctor who told him he had delicate skin and told him to use mild shampoo and take cool baths when bathing. I thought he was exaggerating UNTIL I started itching. What a nightmare! I researched on the internet and figured out it was scabies. I tried sulfur creams all over a couple of times a week but the itching always came back. After months I thought about trying to dissolve the eggs, in case they were still active and started taking vinegar soaks a couple of times a week for a few weeks - 1/3 gallon in a hot bath. I stopped itching! I think it dissolved their communication paths or something which I believe was causing the itch. It's worth a try to see if it works for you.

this post is from "augustmedwest" or "fred" from the thread called How Did I Get Rid of Scabies in Three Seconds. Although FRED says she's been "cured" many, many times, she still comes up with new ideas and protocols. This one seems like it may help someone out there. Not sure about her percentages, though. Again, always research the toxicity of ingredients, and this includes boric acid, being used on the skin for an extended time.

Fred Wrote:

Update on the boric acid lotion formula. As you know I'm always trying to make positive improvements and head in the right direction.

Something that I've come to realize out of necessity and that is supported by consensus in western medicine and alternative medicine is that all the bodies systems are connected. Your skin is the largest organ on your body and if you damage it with a treatment it will adversely affect your immune system. Your immune system is an integral component of this battle. This being said my approach to this topical had many considerations.

I am using this current formula with results that make me very happy, my skin is looking great and is very moist and is being nourished. The formula exhibits great skin penetration and has known scabicides in it that are doing the job.

Here's the formula

To 3oz of very hot water and 2.5 teaspoons of boric acid powder , stir and let set 10 minutes

Then add 3 oz of gold bond ultimate restoring skin therapy lotion and stir really good

Then add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of tea tree oil and stir

These won't mix perfectly well until you put them in a pump bottle using a small funnel and shake vigorously

After shaking the pump bottle they mix really nice.

This keeps the boric acid at 5%, be careful not to breath the dust, I use a mask.

Here are the ingredients;

http://www.goldbondultimate.com/restoring-lot ...

http://www.nowfoods.com/Foods/real-food/Produ ...

http://www.nowfoods.com/Personal-Care/Product ...

http://www.hotshot.com/Products-and-Solutions ...

this product is 99% boric acid and 1% other ingredients , a function of the refinement process.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boric_acid

I've been using the boric acid lotion now for 17 days with no problems and making a particular point not to exceed the 5% mixture.

During your return to health take all other toxins out of your diet, caffeine, alcohol, processed foods, any drugs or chemicals that aren't absolutely needed, etc.

Of course you can disagree with this approach but please do it because you can offer some evidence that says this is the wrong approach not because you just want to support your own opinion.

Flea and Tick Spray (Pyrthrins) and Advantage by Bayer (Imidocloprid) in a lotion base seems to be working for us (a couple) more than anything else we have tried (and we tried it all; Tea Tree, Neem, Bleach, Vaseline, Nix/Permethrin, Lindane, etc). Although we still feel pinpricks sometimes, some occasional bites at night, and female still laying eggs.

However, it is Ivermectin/Stromectol/Moxidect in/Mectizan which kills parasites (Imid is more for ticks and fleas), so this week we are upping the warfare to Advantage Multi (only for cats and dogs, and only with a prescription). We are also trying to acquire Ivermectin paste (only for horses).(It seems there is only a cure for animals and not humans.)

Will let you know if Advantage Multi cured us.

Also, Flea and Tick Shampoo seems to be working better than Tea Tree Oil, Peppermint Oil, and Coconut Shampoo, but Tea Tree and Cedarwood Oil (and Silica) does seem to dry out the eggs well. Vinegar, Lemon Juice, Sulphur Soap, Coal Tar Soap,(and even Denorex) dries out the hair too much. But drying them out is what kills them. Eat lots of garlic, sea salt, silicon dioxide, vinegar, lemon, lime, grapefruit, cinnamon, rosemary, blueberries, and cranberries,(NO sugar!). Use Diatomateus Earth (fossilized shells of diatom algae), Silica Gel Beads (melted quartz crystal rock), and Cedarwood on floors and furniture. They also hate lavender, menthyl, isopropol alcohol, hand sanitizer, cold, hot.

Suffocate them, poison them, and dry them out.

Hello everyone, it has been quite some time since I last posted. I am still scabies free and the only downfall to all of this is that after all of the treatments, I still have a serious case of derma on my legs. Finally, the rashes on my scalp have gone away, along with those on my arms, stomach and back, but the rash on the area where I was first infected by the nurse in the hospital, when she rolled down my legs to put the leg pumps on to make sure I did not get blood clots, still has not gone away. I feel that this nurse at West Virginia University Hospital is probably infecting hundreds if not thousands of people since I came into contact with her in December 2010. This was a long battle and there have been many people on this site looking for trolls, accusing people of lying and I just want to say, if you want help it is here. If you live in the USA, use the creams and the Stromectrol. You can read on many threads here things I posted, I tried so many things and oh Thank God I am still cured. Some of the posts talk about doing crazy things, think about it first. I did a lot of Premethrin 5% cream and I think I may have overdone it, but I thought I was losing my mind. No, I am not crazy although there were a lot of people on this site accused me of it. I was just an honest person dealing with the same situations as others, trying to get help and hoping to find the answers somewhere. Try the correct meds. But I will say one thing. I did the sulfur and it was my first time of rest from the insanity. Don't give up, there is help and you will find the right doctor to get the proper meds. You must also realize that you must clean your enviroment. A MUST IS WHEN YOU DO THE PREMETHRIN 5% cream, do it right after a shower while your skin is damp, Do your body first and then your head and scalp last, HEAD TO TOE, do not leave any area untouched. Leave on for at least 24 hours. You will be cured, but you must also do another follow up treatment I think every 3 days. Since that is the cycle of the mite. If you do it right you can get approximately 3 treatments from a tube of Premethrin.

STILL CURED after 1 year and HOPING YOU GET CURED AS WELL.

Totally agree with this. One must treat continue to do things for months ahead. I am not cured yet but if I get there for sure will use a mix of grapeseed oil clove oil 50/50 and DE that is 24 hours protection. On day 4 of Advantix and freedom 45. Planning on 15 days. And then once a week for 2 months. Iver did a lot in the beginning not so much now. Still taking it. Every 3 days or so.
My thinking is once you take numbers down use grapeseed oil + clove oil plus DE forever. 24 hours protection. This is pandemic out there. And also do nightly mask w clove and tea tree oil hair.

I've been cured of scabies for three months now. I did it by taking two doses of ivermectin (12mg and 15mg) one week apart, and then followed up with a permitherin treatment after my last dose and again a week after that. So I basically treated every week for a month. I also left my home and did not drive my car for five days, starting with the first dose of Ivermectin.

After that, I spot treated with permitherin, which may or may not have been a good idea. I may have cause dermatitis, and I knew that there was potential for that, but wanted to make sure I got rid of the scabies for sure, so I pulled out all the stops. I continued to have symptoms for a while after that. I went on homeopathy, which I thought helped, but now that I think about it, it probably helped because it forced me to stop putting stuff on my skin.

Even with the homeopathy, I still got what felt like a return of the scabies, so I started taking lime sulfur baths (buy on amazon--it's for dogs, cats, and horses, but works great for people.) And I used Humco powdered sulfur all over my body. Also ate 2-3 cloves of raw garlic and took oil of oregano and vitamin B. Eventually everything calmed down. My skin is completely healed now and I sleep well. Be careful of using the permitherin too much. I think it can make your skin feel like you are still infected.

Also be careful of some of the wacky ideas on this forum. Some of the early suggestions on this "I Am Cured," thread, may be more helpful to you than some of the more current postings. But if you just leave your environment for a while, and take the ivermectin and permitherin, you should be on your way to a cure. Also wash everything everyday in HOT water, detergent, and Borax or Oxyclean for at least a month after you think you are cured. Reinfection is very real. It happened to me several times before I was eventually cured. Please see this link, which is the protocol I followed: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22385121

If you're still battling with this problem for months on end and the behavior of the disease defies all logic, do educate yourself on Morgellons. It's a very real disease despite what the CDC says. A good place to start is here: http://www.thecehf.org/

Good luck. It does get better!
