You're wasting your time. You need to get some ivermectin or permitherin, at the very least some powdered sublimed sulfur and sulfur soap. When your symptoms are under control, meaning they are somewhat manageable, get on the homeopathic fox treatment. Good luck.

That's a really good plan. When I was taking Ivermectin tablets I would get 2 days of peace and then the eggs would start to hatch and the crawling and biting would start again. Unfortunately if any mites survive the Iver they pass on the resistance to all the offspring. Probably why "Progress" was advocating taking iver 14 days in a row.

The Iver combined with the perm should get a pretty good kill and get most of the eggs except the really deep ones. Then start taking the psorinum and staphisagria daily. You can't have anything as in cremes, ointments or pesticides on your skin while on the homeopathy because that just continues to suppress the disease and you need to expel it from your skin as your immune system kills it over the next 5-6 weeks.

"applying a topical cream on a skin problem may resolve the immediate problem on the skin, but also might drive the root problem deeper into the body, suppressing its expression. This could create additional problems such as asthma, migraines or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The best answer for curing skin conditions, according to homeopathy, is to cure from the inside out. This requires a remedy that addresses the whole person and brings the body into better balance."

i wouldn't do the bleach bath thing, epsom salts and some table salt to adust the pH of the bathwater should work. but the tea tree oil mixed with witch hazel seems to offer relief from the itching and helps with keeping the skin clean.

I used sulphur powder mixed with a simple cold cream which my skin was able to absorb quickly and I also found sulphur soap in a drug store.
It was smelly and very messy - wear old pjs or something you can throw away when your done.
I used the cream each night for 3 nights washing it off in the moring using the sulphur soap and it seemed to work.

Tea tree oil is supposed to work as a natural insecticide although I'm not sure about mixing it with alcohol. Putting it in a warm bath or diluting it and using as a spot treatment i believe does help.
I have a friend to swears by neem oil, it is supposed to be a bit stronger than tea tree oil but works in a similar way. She made a paste with the neem oil and turmeric and applied it to affected areas.

I know you can get it on Amazon but I would imagine you should get it in a drug store or health store. I'll check with my friend.

I don't have any experience with epsom salts maybe someone else on the forum could answer this part of your question?

As for beds, couches etc, if you can - either buy or rent a steam cleaner. First vacuum everything then use the steam cleaner to retrace your steps. This will kill any eggs and mites don't forget to launder bedding, clothing, towels etc. daily. I also used a product called Benzarid which is a sanitzer which you can use on your furniture without worrying about staining. Fossil shell dust will also kill any mites.

You can get cold pressed neem oil on ebay. I mixed it with turmeric and rubbed that all over every day for a week. It didn't do anything to the scabies but it did make a giant effin mess. The turmeric stains everything permanently and the neem oil stinks. You'll see.

Sulphur was equally as smelly and messy but it did work for me!

FYI- I vacuumed up all that borax on my carpets and furnature a few hours later. I only had to do that a few times but I vacuumed my house daily.

If you treat your skin and your house and the other places you sit, like your car and office, etc. You will be scabies-free in no time. It's not that hard really, you just have to make a routine and stick to it for a while. People who are having a hard time getting rid of scabies are not being aggressive or consistent enough. Do the work and you will be done with it. No big deal. I had it bad and I got rid of them.

Think about it, are there SUPER SCABIES that only effect certain people? No. It's the same bug that everyone gets. Some people do the work and some get lazy or don't stick to their routine. After you do your initial cleaning and bagging, ask for help if you need to keep the laundry going while you are out. As long as you have treated your skin and your house, it will be ok for someone to come over and help you without being afraid of getting it.

You will know when they are gone. Your bumps will start to turn to scabs and heal and you won't have new itchy, inflamed areas.

You got this! You can totally do this!

okay so i think i may have found something that works. i went to three different pharmacies yesterday asking what theyd recommend and the last one was the only one who helped me. he told me an old time remedy i guess you could say. he told me to take sulfur powder, it was only $5 and mix it in with some lotion, i chose aloe vera because it soothes the itching, and i put a few drops of tea tree oil in it. i mixed it all together and rubbed it all over after my shower and i know it worked because there were black specs allll over me! very tiny too hard to see. those were the adults. i don't know that itll kill the eggs but we are gonna keep doing this for the next few days and the once a week til its gone completely. i also mixed some of the sulfur powder and tea tree oil with some water and sprayed it on all the furniture and bedding and the cars. it isnt the best smell ever but i have faith in this one. if anyone knows or has tried this before let me know how it turned out please.

I used bleach once every two weeks for a month. I would pour it in my hands rub it in the effected areas than wait 30 seconds to a minute then immediately take a shower. Don't rub your fingers against your eyes and make sure you take all ordinary precautions to prevent reinfection.

DE -(diatomaceous earth) and Vitamin C. This is the cure. I tried all the kooky things with oils and bleach, the RX stuff from the DR, etc.-they eased the itching but did not make them go away. DE & Vitamin C worked. One month straight take the DE orally and sprinkle it all over anything you touch. Keep clothes, bedding, etc. clean - one use, etc. Take 3,000-6,000 milligrams of the Vitamin C daily plus any multivitamin, because if you've had it a while, your immune system is weak - and I found this to be my issue. Good luck, and please pass on to other boards such as this. P.S. I got the DE online - about $25. Took as much as I could, 1 tbsp in the a.m. and one in the evening.
