using just a topical doesn't cure because they go too deep.After 5months of dealing with Scabies, I feel like I'm losing my mind. It's good to know I'm not alone, Everything you all describe above I can relate to. So here's my story and what I'm doing now to fight this insane parasite infection. 5 months ago it started out with a light itchy rash, which soon turned into an intense itchy rash. I scratched so hard I would bleed. Finally went to Dermotolgist who diagnosed with Scabies. Put me on oral Stromectol 3mg and 4 tubes of that heavy cream to smother the eggs. I was clean for 3 weeks, then they came back even worse. I did the treatment again and still can't get rid of them. Going insane, I took a hot scalding shower to burn them out and burned my skin. Now I have red, burn rash AND scabies rash. I itch constantly. I am up every two hours insanely scrubing my body and putting on Gabby's mixture. I'm using cloves mixed with baby oil to help the itching, witch hazel too. Hydrogen Peroxide only ended up burning my skin. I soaked in baking soda like recommended. Used borax/vaseline/alka seltzer combo....waiting to see if this works. In the mean time, my skin has become so sensitive. I find myself insanely looking through a high power mirror and magnifying glass to pick off the bugs. But sometimes I can't tell if it's lint, or the bug. It's making me a total lunatic. I am considering seeing a doctor soon. Thank you everyone for sharing your stories. This thing we have is total insanity. I hope someone finds the answer soon before I put a gun to my head.
I had this 17 months and the only thing that worked on this forum was the borax solution cure.
