Ivermectin in humans is very dangerous.. when 70 people in a care facility were given oral ivermectin ( half of them the ivermectin and half a placebo or other treatment) all the patients given ivermection died within a year.. or other things.. not DIRECTLY related to the ivermec.. but go figure..... do you really want to take oral ivermec...
Ivermectin and permethrin are the number one meds that people are prescribed for scabies. WE DON'T SPRAY OURSELVES WITH WINDEX OR DAB ACETONE ON US....

Can scabies eggs remain in burrows for over 2 years before hatching? Or can the eggs remain anywhere for over 2 years before hatching?

I'm on my fourth day after being diagnosed with Scabies. Well I had to diagnose myself and have probably had them longer. I took the Ivermectin (oral treatment) three days ago and have been slathering on the 5% permethrin cream every 12 hours for the last 36 hours. The itching just seemed to be getting worse. I couldn't sleep: My hands were swollen and my skin was crawling. Itching and rashes all over. Horrific! I found a solution to help get through those symptoms while you are essentially waiting for the medications to kick in. It's a pain but I sweat it worked for me.

Temperature variations: I first used cold packs and zip locks filled with ice on my worst areas. It sucks because it's cold but it starts to really help. Then I turned the hot water on really hot in my bathroom sink and soaked the areas with super HOT water, using a wash cloth. Wow, what a difference. The itching is gone right now. I have been up all night reading and going NUTS but this really really worked. No BS. You will be able to at least sleep and make it to the next day.

I plan on being vigilant. You have to attach these mites from every direction. I am even going to try some natural oils on top of the pills and permethrin cream. I want everyone to know that you can get relief from the itching and sleep if you are willing to endure the Cold then really HOT wash cloth applications.

Hey Cami. Try to get the doctor to prescribe ivermectin. Ivermectin to be taken orally and permethrin to be applied topically should get you on the way to recovery. From my experience, very few people get cured by just using permethrin cream, but, there have been a few on this board who were cured by using permethrin alone, but not many. Wash your bedclothes in hot hot water. Check out the other threads here for cleaning and meds, and information on how people have been cured.
Ivermectin is very very very bad for you.. try anything else over and over DO NOT Take Ivermectin oraly

if you all think lindane and ivermectin is less harmless than oral ivermectin , you are simply ignorant.. windex never killed anyone and ivermectin has, and lindane can cause irregular heartbeat forever. as far as acetone ( if you are not diabetic) on a small cotton, on a small spot, hold it there , it will burn if it is getting into the canal where the eggs are laid... but better a little burn than all those eggs hatching..... very small amount of acetone on a few spots will not kill you like ivermectin can.. well, studies show that the people who die from taking ivermectin die within a year of 'unrelated' causes.. but they die just the same.

I like to squeeze lemons in my windex and make kool aid out of it. Add a dash of acetone and you are sitting high and mighty on the white sandy beaches of honolulu.

The eggs do not just go away. The meds do not kill the eggs. They hatch out and carry on. This is why you need several applications of meds, about 7 days apart, to take care of egg hatching. And you have to try to keep everything clean, so you don't get reinfested, as the mites can live in the environment for a few days, track you down, crawl back on you, and start all over again, on you. Alot of us on here pick at our nodules and burrows. Our ability to do this, can keep the numbers down a little, but can cause infection, too. I just read an article the other day, that an adult female can lay up to 60-90 eggs in her lifetime. That's a lot of eggs.
I KNOW you all think it's crazy but nothing does it for me like Original Windex! I spray and spray until the itching goes away.. actually ( don't get it in your eyes) it is refreshing.. after coverying my whole body with Windex I wash with Neutrogena acne soap with salycitic acid... the combination of these two things will, eventually do it. HOWEVER, they do not penetrate the eggs.. Only a dab of Acetone will penetrate further ( cotton swab with acetone held on the spot for a minute) do not use acetone except in small spots. Diabetics can not use acetone as your body converts it into sugar

I should add personaly I suspect scabies do not die easily at all... a health care worker told me to mop the floor with clorox water.. that helped a LOT. also I bag things that can not be dried in a hot dryer.. in small plastic bags and freeze them for at least 48 hours or longer. If I am going to wash them I do that after the freezing.. look, this is a war to the finish for some of you.. Those that are cured with permithrin are really really lucky, I was not ....

found this.

Each treatment with scabicide should be followed the next morning by hot-wash laundering or dry cleaning of sheets and pillow cases and any clothes worn against the skin over the last week. Non washable items should be sealed in a plastic bag and stored above 20 C for one week. Alternatively they can be frozen below -20 C for 12 hours. Rooms should be thoroughly cleaned with normal household products. Fumigation or specialised cleaning is not required. Carpeted floors and upholstered furniture should be vacuumed and all areas cleaned with normal household products. The vacuum bag should then be discarded and furniture covered by plastic or a sheet during treatment and for 7 days after.

Hi, im 18 years old and about to go to college in 2 weeks. Earlier on this week I went to the doctor and told her about my weird, crawling sensations all over my body. It doesnt make me itchy or anything, everytime I rub or touch the spot the feeling goes away. Its mostly on my back, arms, and legs but its not that bad. I told the doc I have been doing community service at Goodwill for the past week and suspect it to come from there. She diagnosed me with scabies seeing that I dont just feel it at night. I dont have any bumps in between my fingers or toes, or even on my arms. Although I do have a variety of them on my back and legs some due to acne. She prescribed me with permethrin cream and told me to rub from neck to the soles of my feet. I did this yesterday and some min. laters I didnt feel anything. A few hours later I started feeling a little bit of the crawling sensation again. This might be my body reacting to the cream hopefully. I never feel anything on my face or in my hair so I believe my doc was right about it not getting there. I read everyone's comment from page 1 to 21 and it freaked me out at how bad yall are. I try to pay no attention to some of these comments because i dont want to end up like yall. However some of this research does help. Im about to shower the cream off and change my bed sheets once more. I also took many of yall advice avout the peroixide and water mix. I sprayed all over my floor, my bed sheets, and covers with it. I felt better after that. I never have had an itch and I believe its because im treating the bug at a very early stage. Some of yall have worried yourself into thinking you have a problem and aome of yall have made your skin very irrotated. I wish the best for everyone and im glad my road to recovery is much more soothing and painless than some of yall's. God Bless !

I had scabies for three months four months ago. I have it back again. I identified the symptoms immediately. I have no idea how I got the back. I used PIN X (over the counter anti-parasitic ($22 a bottle). I took a dose every other day because the bugs get on different life cycles. This was after the permethrine, lindaine each twice and three does of stromectal. I cleaned and slept in a different place every night. I kept the area covered to minimize transfer of any bugs. I bombed my house and sprayed the chemicals from the bomb on my skin. I was ready to start myself on fire to kill them. The meds to treat them are hard on you also. I read sulpher helps so I went to the Sulpher hot Springs in Montana. This made a difference. It is hard to say what was the most effective since I did so many things. I think the sulphur springs, Pin X and stromectol. I have thanked god every day that it went away and now its back. Its a nightmare. I think you get it easier a second time. Do the bugs sense that you were a five star hotel before?

Are you talking about ivermectin or albendazole? yes, 15 mg. is sufficient to kill most any parasites in your body. It goes by weight. This dosage is for scabies for someone who weighs 150 pounds. How much do you weight?
ivermectin does not kill tape worm, though.
talk to your doctor.
