norwegian scabies are the same as sarcoptie it is just a term used to describe an extremely bad case of them.

I figured as much, thanks.

Is this working for anyone? I am losing faith in more popular methods, borax etc. I do believe it helps but it's just too dang slow! I live in an apartment, I can't afford all this crazy laundering, it's driving me nuts! The pinpricking continues, I find the occasional group of 2 or 3 bites near each other, ugh!

What about mites in the hair and nose? Will the iver reach them? About to lose my mind over here. Im now waiting on the cattle/swine iver from amazon. Is there no end to this?:(

If you look at the dates of posts, 2 years or better, there were some people who posted cures using Ivermectin, Since then, not much.

When doctors prescribed it, they were scared to prescribe a sufficient dose to cure and scabies have rapidly developed resistance.

Another shame really.

there are so many people commenting here that they dont know how much ivermectin to take and so on. i have cured myself of scabies two times with ivermectin. i have had scabies 3 times in 3 and 1/2 years because i work in close contact with the homeless in san francisco and there is a very high infestation rate among them. i started out begging a dr for a prescription for stromectol but realized that was getting me nowhere and i was losing precious days/weeks trying to convince her while the scabies were reproducing and getting worse. i decided to take matters into my own hands and bought liquid ivermectin injectable meant for cattle and swine- the brand name i bought was noromectin made by norbrook. it is 1% ivermectin. you can use that brand or any other brand that is 1% ivermectin. the dosing for humans is the same as the dosing for cattle! im not a kook. ive taken it 6 times now- 3 times one week apart for the first time i used it and then when i got infested again 9 mos later 3 times one week apart for the second time i used it. you want to take it once and then again 7 days later and then again 7 days later. 21 days- once a week for 3 weeks. dont take it if you have liver disease. take it on an empty stomach and take at least 8 oz of water with it. when you do put something in your stomach a few hours after taking it try eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice- it helps the ivermectin work better. you will need a hypodermic needle and syringe to draw the liquid medicine out of the bottle with. in many states/cities that are progressive and have a good attitude towards making hypo syringes avaiable to the public to decrease HIV and Hep infection you can buy a single syringe at a walgreens or other drug store- this is true of NYC and san francisco just walk up to the pharmacy counter and ask for a syringe. it costs about a dollar. if you live in the bible belt or some such place, you can get hypo syringes at any feed store or livestock supply store- they are marked "for veterinary use only" and are there for anyone of any age to buy. order online from www.farmandfleet.com if you have to. you can get your ivermectin from them too. the marks on the side of the syringe tell how many ml are in there. the smallest syringe is a 1ml diabetic syringe and that is what you will get when you ask for a syringe at walgreens in NYC or other pharmacy. it is broken down further into tenths of a ml with marks for that too which are represented by .1,.2,.3,.4,.5,.6 etc up to 1.0 which is a whole ml. the syringes from farm and fleet and other feed stores etc are bigger and hold usually 3 or more ml and are marked off with lines for each .1.2.3.4 but those numbers arent on there just the full ml numbers are so there will be nine marks with no number next to them- like the minute marks on the face of a clock then a 1ml like the 1 hour is marked by a 1, then nine more marks then a 2ml and so on. stick the needle thru the rubber top of the bottle and then draw up however much your dose is into the syringe using the numbers and marks on the side of the syringe as a guide.
Thank you for the information...i m really happy that i got rid of these parasites..i got infected 15 years ago..i did numerous treatments with creams
and still had a few left on my bikini line..a few months ago i infected my boyfriend too so we decided to follow your example and i bought online horse paste and ingested 3 times 3 weeks apart..and now we re both healed..it worked for me and i had no side effects..except the crazy ich we got a day after the first treatment...thank you again

Update 11.27.12 my son is almost completely clear his hands and elbows are clear and smooth his belly has no more red bumps. The first oral dose of injectable ivomec worked so well he wanted the second as an injection as intended this is a pre-teen that hates needles. He got sleep the first time in months. Thanks so much for this information I feel so much better being able to give my babies relief!

It seems that injectable ivermectin and Pour On Ivermectin as a topical works well for treatment of scabies when they are quickly discovered. For many, something else is going on.

I think sometimes not all things that manifest like scabies are there are a lot of skin conditions that symptoms are super close or the same. I put the case info together my son about 4 months ago stayed the night at some family that live in close quarters and aren't super duper clean. The one boy there has similar belly rash and itching a lot. I put two and two together since my sons stayed the night in that cousins room that scabies may be my culprit the only confirmation I have is with treatment it is getting better

Can I use the same liquid ivermectin on my dogs. I was told I need to treat them as well in order not reinfest ourselves. Also can you take this if you have hepatitis C.

Bob, it sounds like you may not be dealing with a sarcoptes mite. Personally, I would be using the Ivomec eprinex pour on as a topical and noromectin orally. Also, are you going for two or three days without bathing after applying and ingesting the medicine? I believe this is key. I would not use the horse paste orally, too many reports of it not working. I just recently found out I don't even have scabies but something else. I really hope you find relief soon, God bless.

These doses are not maximum doses. Your Scabies mites may be resistant to low ivermectin doses. When I had Scabies the doctor prescribed 12 mg which is the old dose from 20 years ago that is not based on weight. The weight dose may also not be high enough. I was cured after I started double the weight based dose in combination with full body topical Permethrin. I started with Permethrin 5% Cream but it simply was not strong enough so I moved on to Advantix II Blue with 45% Permethrin. I hope this helps.
Do you mean K9 Advantix II? How did you use it.

I have recurring scabies, so I guess I never really ever have gotten rid of them entirely. I don't want to use Lindane I have taken oral ivermectin, which made me violently ill Perethrin seems to work temporarily. I read that someone used a mixture of paste and pour topically. Has anyone done this and what is the ratio? Thanks.

Bob, look at www. stopskinmites .com. See if the description there fits what you are experiencing. She has a protocol outlined that really works if you stick with it. Sorry for your suffering, I had been for 2 months before I happened onto that website. You are not required to pay anything, but it is important to follow her directions very carefully. I have cleared up about 85%. I guess there are quite a number of people who are being terrorized by "super organisms".
