You're right, you might find 5 in 100 doctors that understand what it is to diagnose, you need a lot of money and patience to get to that point.hey guys, i'm a college student living in the dorms. I contracted this nightmae of a condition from a girl i slept with 3 months ago. I have tried alot of at-home remedies, and none worked. So finally, today I went to the ER to see what they said. Mind you I dont have insurance, so it's gonna be costly. I found that I knew more about these mites and my condition than the doctos did. The doctor and I argued for nearly 45 minutes about whether the permetherin kills the eggs or not. She was certain they did, and I kept arguing that the cream wasnt strong enough to dig into the skin and kill the eggs; thus you use 2 treatments of the Perm 5%. She follows up with "oh, I never thought of that, seems logical" WTF is wrong with our doctors?!?!? anyways, I got a perscription for both Perm 5% and Invectimin. I just want advice on how to use it, and ways to make sure I am rid of this shit. The doc also scans my whole body (for nearly 5 minutes) turns to me and says "it looks like you may have scabies" NO WAY!!?? are you crazy.. haha it actually made me laugh. so, any help would be appreciated, caus apprently as the doc says "this is the worst case i have seen in nearly a year" please help, anybody, anyone.
Doctors use something called "The Clinicians Guide to Prescription Medicines".But that only works if they can actually diagnose you, they are wrong in their diagnosis a over 80% of the time.
I wouldn't be so set in your conclusion that you have mites. The best thing to do is to collect your own specimens and submit them to an Entomology lab , a lot of universities have them and the fee is about $25
for analysis. Best to know what you are actually dealing with. If the samples come back negative for a mite infection it is possible you have some kind of bacterial infection, depending what your infected with a wide variety of bacterial infections can mimic scabies symptoms. The thing to remember is that the home made cures found on this forum like bathing in Arm and Hammer or rubbing Vetrinarian permethrin on yourself or even taking Vet grade treatments for parasitic infections or bathing in bleach then ALL of that stuff has some very detrimental health effects that will come back to haunt you. Whatever you do don't rub Diatomaceous Earth on yourself. People have gotten a lot worse and have become permanent residents of this forum because they followed this kind of plan.
If you want to try to cure this with home remedies stick to the ones that are not chemicals , for example taking clove capsules work on a mite infection but you have to take 12-16 a day for a month and the skin sensations are pretty weird. At least that won't mess up your health in other ways.
