So you don't need a microscope? I've looked with a great magnifying glass but I don't see fibers or anything else.

Just so you know where you stand why don't you go to walmart and get the ph test strips from the pet section for aquariums. When I started the borax solution cure my ph was 6. now it's up to 7.0
after doing the regimen for 24 days now.

I read as much as you did i'm sure, most of the stuff you find on the net about scabies and what works is wrong but after torturing myself for 17 months with all kinds of so called cures finding something that actually does work is a lifesaver.

It cured 3 people already and is doing great things for others when we were all running out of hope. So Take your research and believe it or not but don't post negative sh*t about something that is saving people from this scourge. When it comes to body alkalinity and the borax cure you really just need to shut up about it.

I'm not saying it doesn't exist just saying that some people may really need to let the skin heal after all the chemicals they've used to treat scabies. Post scabies can last awhile, weeks months who knows and feel like scabies. I thought I had a fresh bite last night after weeks of being clear but I had also just watered plants outside so I think it was actually a mosquito ... Someone wrote in a forum that after scabies you have to re-set your brain... I agree.

Next time you go somewhere like the mall look closely at the glass store windows (specially clothing store) and I can almost guarantee you will see little white hairs or white dots on them. Dirt is gray and not white. So this is not dirt. Look closely at new cotton clothing and you will see similar fibers on the sleeves.

Post scabies is not like scabies , in scabies you feel crawling, if you don't feel crawling for a few weeks you're probably cured.
If you feel crawling it's crawling.

Post scabies can be worse than scabies and can last a while because very often your skin gets worse in post scabies and if you're successful there is likely to be some incredible itching. If you've been infected a long time then the itching will be crazy.

There are ways to shorten post scabies, stay super hydrated and take hot hot showers and scrub with a bath brush everywhere to exfoliate, also exercise, sweating helps expel the debris. Do everything that will help your skin to expel it.

If the itching is unbearable it's because your body treats histamines like a bucket , when the bucket overflows and your body can't process histamines anymore then you get the herx.

Give your skin time to heal. The pin pricks don't necessarily mean active scabies, neither does crawling. I never experienced either of those sensations until AFTER I did the permethrin treatments. I noticed that I became hypersensitive to chemicals after my treatments, and found that moving away from chemicals in my home and body seemed to speed the healing process. I was absolutely convinced that I still had scabies after my treatments, but I didn't. So glad I didn't follow the drastic measures some people say to do on this forum! But a lot of it is just being patient and letting the itchies run their course. But see a dermatologist if you need to be reassured that they are gone. You need to rebuild your immune system. I also noticed that I started feeling a lot better when I started treating myself and my environment for possible fungal infection, which I think was a secondary infection from the scabies. It's helped a lot. A whole lot! Sulfur helped me for a while, but I stopped using it. Down to one shower a day, just use a small amount of regular soap for sensitive skin. But still wash my bedding daily. Clove oil on rashes, also sulfur ointment (you can make your own with powdered sublimed sulfur and Vaseline), and take oil of oregano pills. I've also read that selenium is good for the crawling sensations. I take 200 mg at night. Also shampoo hair with a dandruff shampoo. Good luck!
I never felt pin pricked or crawling until after two treatments, im concerned because crawling sensation is at night. Are you still clear? Any advice?

if you are struggling to sleep I have found something in my refrigerator that is 100T effective. Stand on a towel while you do this so anything dropping can be scooped into the washer.
Take one egg out of the refrigerator and whip it with a fork. You can remove the yolk if you want to and use only white but I used the whole thing. Just remove the thicker part.
Rub the egg everywhere and in the same way you apply permithan cream. Stand there and let it completely dry. Hold your butt cheeks up and chest etc. so air hits it and it has to completely dry. You will feel them starting to run, getting stuck and die as the egg dries.
Take a shower first to get everything off your skin and do the whole thing a 2nd time if you have a large infestation. Wait long enough to get that one adult that is good at hiding in your "personals" before rinsing. If you have a fan that would be a faster way to get it to dry.
Sleep - ahhh.

My family of eight has been struggling with scabies for about seven months now, maybe longer but didn't know it. It took a long time to get properly diagnosed with it. We were first diagnosed in July and were treated with one dose of perm and told no extra cleaning was necessary, I wonder where they got that idea? We were still getting stuff and were diagnosed with it again in September. This time we got two doses of perm. It felt that it was getting better but there was still spots. So we ordered a bunch of natural oils to use off of the internet, Naturasil and Scabies Killer. Naturasil was best I think but Scabies Killer worked pretty good too (we kind of used both alternately). WE also did the borax, bleach, and peroxide baths for a little over a week. Completely tore up our skin, but seemed to help. I will say that what i think really cured us was fasting and praying to God to take it away and bring peace to our minds which were SO paranoid at this point. We are now experiencing post scabies syndrome, at least that is what we are assuming (how could anything survive all we did to our bodies?!?!) Scabies Girl, I am so sorry that you are going through this, I can tell the toll it is taking on your peace of mind through your writing and felt compelled to tell you our story as well. It is SO hard to look at bites on our bodies and just say, "okay, just leave it and it will go away". That is the hardest part, but truly we just have to move on, and if in a few months it turns out it wasn't then we will have to start over but continuing to treat our bodies would only cause more irritation and itchiness that is not scabies related. WE are trusting in the goodness of our God who is the Healer of all afflictions.

Thank you Hopeful. I agree in Gods goodness and I am praying for all of us. My sister's a nurse and I got it from her. She applied `10% Sulfur in vaseline head to toe for 24/7 days and it was gone. I tried all the meds and potions, bleach bath - it all because I can't have vaseline hair during the day at work. I'm now trying the Sulfur. I will say I haven't had any new bites after 2 days and they are starting to pale. I can still feel them at night though.

Some people don't feel these things running and some do. Its feeling them moving around at night and even during the day that drives us crazy.

Also, my daughter reminded me - its a skin condition. Its not cancer or some horrific life ending thing. My sister had cancer and so in comparison it really is something we can get through.

I am so frustrated! I am at my wits ends! This all started in September of this year. My 2 year old daughter began to get a rash, mostly around her toes and shins and hair line. I took her to the doctor, and the doctor said it was just a rash. A few weeks later it still didnt clear up. She went to her fathers house, he noticed her scratching. He told me that him and his girlfriend had been diagnosed with scabies a couple months back (Would have been nice to know). Went back to the doctor. She gave us the pemilian cream(or whatever it's called). I treated my daughter and myself and both my parents treated themselves. I literally went ape shit on my house. Cleaned top to bottom. Took all her material toys away. For three weeks washed all our clothes in hot water and bedding. Steam cleaned the car seat, the couches, the carpet and the mattresses. Her father has put cream on her, I have put cream on ourselves, but everytime she would go over there, there was another out break. I have kept her out of the carpeted rooms and off the couches , took all the material stuff down like curtains and put things in the freeze or the dryer. In the end of October i purposely didn't let her go to his house on the weekend. I honesty felt like the Scabies were gone. Both her and I weren't scratching, I didn't get any spots but hers had mostly cleared up. I let her go back to his house on the Tuesday and Wednesday and then on the Saturday and Sunday,(he hadn't done the extesiveness of cleaning I went to) needless to say, when she got back, we were showering together and I noticed more spots had arised on her. I looked at my body and noticed spots as well. I treated her and myself again with the cream. Took away all the stuffies I just have back to her on sunday(finally), and did all the washing.
Here's my problem, I did the cream on Tuesday night, it's now Thursday night, and I feel like a couple more spots have appear on my body,(which i didn't get before). I have this pins and pricks sensation all over my body and I'm itchy at night. It's been two nights? Should I still feel like this? Are these mites not gone yet? Why do I still feel like they are crawling around on me? I am honestly at a complete lost, and feel defeated. I just want things to back to normal! I feel like I'm crazy and paranoid! Any scratching and spots, and I go mental. Am I just suffering from post scabies? Or is my mind playing tricks on me? Or are these son of a b buggies still hanging around!?

My wife, daughter and I did the treatment several times and I still feel the pinprick and crawling mainly on the left side of my back. My wife and daughter never felt anything even before the treatment. Permethrin will make your skin VERY sensitive. You may feel some crawling and pinpricks post scabies. Stress is a trigger for this in my case.

Make sure her father does proper cleaning before she goes back, otherwise she will keep getting reinfected.

Just want to encourage everyone, this is the toughest thing to deal with! Makes my divorce look like a picnic! After treating with perm. And ivermec. Make yourself stop! I itch worse now and feel pinpricks. Last eve. My sulfur ointment arrived. Mixed it with olive oil and smeared from head to toe. Keep it out of eyes, pine oil burns! But crawling and pinprics ceased. ears are feeling crawly a lot. Put some sulfur mix in there carefully. Telling myself no more chemicals... Will use sulfur for 3 nights and see what happens. Stress will really rile your body up. Every itch and twitch can send us to the med. Cabinet. Pray, and treat yourself gently. I've poisoned myself for sure, will take awhile to heal. Taking sulfur tablets also. I will stink but hopefully be bug free. Watch your pets, thats where i got it. Need to treat them also. Blessings to all. Dealing with this for 2 months.

Also, found clear anti itch lotion at local $ store. Helps a lot and can see pepper like spots come out. Presuming it is purging my body of adults. Hope so! This lotion has oil of rosemary and lavender in it. It's cheap too. Hang in there.

Unfortunately I don't have much time to give a really lengthy reply - I'm at work and have a really busy week ahead of me. I've been meaning to hop back on here and post on my status and give some treatment suggestions.
First of all, don't believe everything you read on the internet. Second of all, don't take every response you read in forum like this one to heart. Everybody's situation is different and some people are just negative...more about that later...
It is now what, three months since I posted my question in this forum. I have been scabies free since April and haven't had a re- infestation since.
I will post a detailed account of my situation and the way I treated my scabies this weekend. In the meantime, the best thing you can do is GO SEE A DERMATOLOGIST! Find a dermatologist in your area who can do a skin scraping (scabies test). The skin scraping can help give you the peace of mind (or the help you need to treat your situation) that you're looking for.
PS.
Not itching at night is a very good sign that your condition is improving. I still itch like crazy (mainly on my shins) from time-to-time, but it's just the residuals of the scabies. I figure each layer of skin I shed I'm going to itch a little till everything is completely out of my skin. I'll post a detailed account of my situation and how I treated myself this weekend. Good luck!
Max,
Please do a detailed answer on how you was able to rid yourself of scabies. You said you would but I see nothing and I am wondering.
