After so many failed treatments of permethrin I popped open my bottle of Pine-Sol and rubbed it on my itching spots. I already know you are going to say it will give me cancer but they run away from it. If I get cance later in life so what at least I can get relief now. I don't dare to rub it on the kids but I have mixed it in a spray bottle with some water and sprayed the bed and other furniture, What a difference it made. I am now the crazy person rubbing pine sol on my skin but at least I can sleep now

I always wondered how pine sol would work? But, I was afraid to try it. It sounds like you're having success with it. I don't know how toxic it is, but we are driven to do what we have to. On the bright side, you, & your house probably smell like Christmas at all times :)

I kind of like the smell :) My family hates it lol. The spots clear up instantly like they never existed. I am not sure how toxic it is either but it's not like I am drinking it right? I dont lather my whole body with tons of it. I take a cotton pad and dab small amounts where I itch and poof scabies has vanished from my skin.

Is anyone still using this?
I have to use something on my head.
Nothing seems to phase these critters.
Maybe I will just add a little to my shampoo,
and see what happens.

I still use it. I put a drop in the laundry too. My family has scabies but not too bad. I only have 1 maybe 2 bites at any time. My son only his arms a few and my toddler on the back of her neck but I don't use pine aol on the kids. I mixed it with lotion and rubbed it on. Maybe you could buy pine oil without all the toxic stuff?

Thanks for answering.
Yes, I was reading about pine oil, mostly because I know that it is in turpintine.
I saw that it can cause your skin to become sensatized.
So I guess none of this is too great to use a lot of.
I was just hoping to be able to use something NOW,
when I am being so BUGGED!!!:D

Yeah the pine sol is a quick fix our numbers are very low. Only problem for me is re infection every time. Good luck! Remember to be VERY aggressive with your cleaning. Bag up your dirty clothes, vacuum everything even your car. Get rid spray in the lice section spray bed furniture and buy plastic covers for your bed and pillows. I wipe them down every time I change the sheets. Wash your sheets and blankets in hot water everyday or as often as u can. Freeze clothes u can't wash. Have you seen a doctor yet? You should get permethrin cream asap too.

I did permetherine first.
I have done all of the things that you suggest.
For more than 1 1/2 yrs now.
I'm very tired and will try other things now.
I'm now thinking of trying the peroxide / borax mix.
I actually went ahead and washed my head with pine sol.
Even so, the creepy crawlys srarted again soon.
Something has to work.
I appreciate your posting to help.
Thanks so much.

Thanks for the link.
I think this is a good oil, I plan to buy it,
no matter what else I try.
It would always be good to have some pine oil.

pine sol
Posted in the Scabies Forum

The SUBJECT is Pine Sol.(PERIOD)O

I did try Pine Sol on my head (Hair/scalp)
I washed it 3-times in a row, fast.
(I know, over done .. that is my nature.
Not that it is OK.)

I never wash my hair in the shower.
If I did, I would have larvae all over my body.
That is not fun, it has happened.

I always use a small clear plastic bag on my hair when I am in the shower.
That works quit well, I can then place my gloves etc. into that to discard.

I was so tired or the creepy crawlies that
I also washed my entire body with Pine sol.
Most of the worry was about the fumes that I was breathing while I did it. It was pretty bad.

I do not recommend that anyone do this,
but I did it.
Soon after doing this to my scalp, I felt the creeping again. It may have actually been worse,
which is often the case when trying anything.
I think they have a sense (or whatever) of fighting for survival. & who knows how deep they have embeded into the scalp.

I'm not sure about how much good it did my body,
but I do not have any big problems that I can see
anywhere on my body. Although I must say I am very
consistant and thorough about all of my cleaning. I do feel the creepies on my body and also can see them when I wipe the spot with a clean paper towel, and shake it into the laundry tub that is usually wet.
My face (eyes, nose) and scalp are my problems.
I have used a ton of paper towels and also baby wipes from Costco.
I must say, it was a little difficult to get the film left by the Pine Sol off of my skin.

I do not consider this a cureative, nor the best thing to use, but I do think it is effective for spot treating and my badly infested hands are now almost clear from using it.
So that is my experience with Pin Sol ... FYI.

I would just like to say, that I am 73.
I have always had Pin Sol at my residence and
used it on floors and extensivly in the bathrooms and kitchen.
This may have been one reason that I was able to raise my 3-kids and we never had one lice infestation or any other itching problem in all of those years.
I was introduced to it by the Doctors that I worked for before I got married.
I didn't ask at the time, but maybe they knew something that wasn't shared.
There were no problems at their residence either.

Hope this helps someone.

That was interesting. Which one of you two knuckleheads made this one up? Anyone want to place bets? I think Armed is Jeannie, and Jesselyn is Armed who is jeannie. I'm going to go buy some stock in pine sol now. This is going to be a hit.

Pine-Sol has really helped my situation. I had almost magical effects from an oral suspension Vermox, a liquid de-wormer, but only had a small amount and ran out. So out of desperation, I spot treated with Pine-Sol on the remaining spots. It has got rid of a lot of them. This is week two of doing this and I can now count the spots remaining.

Yes, I believe there is certainly help from P-S.

I thought someone posted that they had left info on another thread, RE: their experience with P-S.
I wanted to go to the thread and read it and also was hoping the person would copy and paste it to this thread:'Pine Sol'.. so we can find it.
Thanks

I tried Pine-Sol for a short time only. It is still a solvent and so can be dangerous for any prolonged use.
