I just tried Dawn original blue in my bath, instead of A&H, on a recommendation from a natural remedy flea killing site, although they mentioned lemon dawn, all I had was the blue, so I used that, about 3-4ozs in a 30min hot bath, upon leaving the bath, a bunch of black spots (period size!) starting dropping off my feet, & body., and my skin feels good, not burnt like using this on a facecloth in the shower! That's the 1st time I ever saw something like that, I'm pretty sure they were the mites leaving, smaller then the black pepper spots I've had appear before, and more round. I'm just putting this out there to see if it can help anyone else suffering. Next chance I get I'm looking for lemon dawn dishwashing soap in the market.

Damn, this is proof they live in the skin, not on it! No wonder you can't see them. I need to get Avon "Skin so soft" bath oil spray to try, & keep them off.

Mike, did you use the peroxide along with the dawn? Or just blue dawn and water? I have some and want to try it tonight...LOL!

Nope, Just Blue Dawn! I used about 3-4ozs in the hot bath, I put it in after the water settled to avoid getting too much suds, I started with less, and kept adding more to be safe. You could probably add even more because I didn't notice any Ill effects, I may try that myself next. I thought it was doing nothing till I got out of the tub, then I saw them appear on my feet, at least 4-5 on each foot. Note this, as I went to get some Q-tips to get samples, I got one, and noticed then they were gone? I'm afraid they were not dead, but stunned, and got away (fell off) before I could get any more,,,do you believe this? Unreal, they were not dead, but did come to the skin surface, and left like rats deserting a sinking ship! I don't know if they died after leaving my skin? but it didn't matter, I got the results I was looking for. I also noticed I got a few bites on my body after this like they were trying to get last licks! But, at least I saw them, and I know what's been eating me now, and how they do it invisibly, they are identified! I know my enemy! It looks like a bird mite of some type! "I got your number now bug!",,,lol. I don't know if they brought along, or are teamed up with any, distant relative parasite with them? but I didn't see anything else.
I slept well, after this with no bites, or crawling either, thank god. Good hunting N.D.C.T.

OKAY, I tried this last night, with just the blue dawn, but I added it early, so lots of suds. I did not see them leaving like you did, but I did have the same biting action within about 20 minutes of the bath. I ended up covering myself in sulfur cream and was able to sleep a bit, not the best sleep, but sleep nonetheless. Tonight I will try with peroxide mixed in and add the blue dawn later. However, the suds were quite pleasant feeling and smelling.

I am now scared to death after watching the vids on collembola from the site you posted, so I am praying that something lets me know that I can beat these little fuckers. Nothing seems to work, even straight tea tree oil doesnt affect the bugs on me and in me. Interesting note: I read a report that stated that mites can only travel 5cm in five minutes. Well, the bugs on me can race across the entire width of my foot in a split second! This is the ones on top of the skin, not under the skin, so I do not know which one they were reporting to move so slow, or both???

Good hunting, and lets kill these parasites!

Hi Mik

Dawn rules ! it sufffacates the bug

This letter I found explains a huge part of the mite life & how to kill it

http://www.safe2use.com/scabiesboard/2004_10/...

here is an excerpt

. Repeated baths in water and bath oil, or repeated swims in chlorinated swimming pools will kill adult mites and nymphs feeding close to the surface. And you don't have to smell like a human pickle to accomplish breaking the cycle.
When you talk about using an abrasive scrubber and dish detergent to get rid of eggs on hair shafts, it sounds like you're talking about body or hair lice. That's a whole different insect, and while some people have found vinegar to be helful (I never did) lice are easier to remove with natural products like mayonaise, olive oil or very rich conditioner, in combination with a good nit comb. Or there are lice insecticide products on the market.

Your in-law's dog may have animal mites also, but that doesn't mean the dog is the problem. The dog may be an innocent victim like you. You don't mention whether your in-law's dog is a female. The fact that you, and only you are being affected in your household makes me suspect rodent mites. If there are rodent ne.....

( in the link it speaks of vacuming. This works some what but tri-jet foggering annhilates them .
2 cups epsom
1/2 cup boraz
1 cup windex
1.5 gal of hot water , Stir well for 1 miinute put in fogger & turn the room into a blinding dense fog, I can only see 3ft into it ...bye bye bug. I haven't flet a bug since I started doing thei to each room every 3 days.
ps the baking soda 1 cup in the bath is amazing , it has stopped them dead . I did use a lot of peroxide / borax/ water mix before thet & I use dawn as my soap in the shower often , it soes dru out the skin. Coconut oil is great for making the skin like new after all this strong astrintent cleaning of the skin

God bless you, Bill

.ps remember it is repeated baths ,

A-a-a-a-a-a-h-h!!! These things are driving me Crazy tonight! Just took another bath in blue Dawn, before bed and I couldn't duplicate the same results, went to lay down, & the crawling, & biting started!
It appeared to be a new formula blue Dawn?, it may not be the same old formula like I used before, I don't know, it maybe different. Now I'm back up at 2:30am wondering what to do? Instead of cleaning, & changing bedding each night (What a drag!) I usually spray the bedding with Windex, before my usual A&H bath, then let it dry in some, usually getting good results, but not tonight! If anyone has any suggestions on how to avoid the constant daily bedding change, & wash please let me know?

Mikdee, sorry to hear that the dawn didn't help this time! I tried sleeping in just plastic, didn't work too well for me, but does cut down on laundry. Using sulfur ointment might get you an extra night outta the bedding, it usually does for me, but you just never know when they are gonna go on the attack, and it can be fresh bedding or once used it seems for me.

I just started on ivermectin horse paste last night, and wow! what a difference. I still have plenty of activity, but it's completely different activity. The under the skin crawls are now like flutters (hopefully death throws) and absolutely no mites racing across my skin last night! Still plenty of stinging bites, but at least no creepy crawls.

I was at the end of my rope and chose to find some iver, had to go to a feed store about 30 miles away to get it. But it was cheap, less than $7 for 1250 pound horse worth. I got two plungers of it and am going to treat myself with it till its gone, also mixed some with sanitizer lotion and spread that all over my body tonight before slathering on the sulfur ointment. I am able to sit here at the pc without being driven crazy for once. I think I see a light at the end of the tunnel. Hang in there!

Hi Mik de

i bought an ozark twin sized air mattress at walmart in the camping section. it has no velor on it, so the mites cannot hide in the velor. you can take it in the shower and rinse it off every nite if you want. it takes 5 minutes to do this. don't use a sheet on it, unless you can wash sheets daily. the mites shed from your body daily and especially in the bed. clean the floor around the bed, too.

use ivermectin and permethrin, to rid your body of these things.

just spraying windex on your bed will not work, as they are so small that they can live in cracks of the plastic, seems, etc. they will come out as soon as you turn the lights off at night.

I fially got some relief last night by taking a shower after 2:30am, with sulfur soap "Jabon De Azufre". Jiffy, it sounds like a good idea, but I'm afraid to vacuum because I don't have a HEPA filter, and fear that they're so small they'll get blown thru the bag all over the house.

try using a great vacuum on your linens before retiring for the moment, it saves alot of washing, i invested in a kirby which was a god send when i was washing clothes all the time,just put arm&hammer in the bag, suck some of it up before you start doing it.later people, good luck to ya.

I'm bathing in a mix of water and vinegar. Fill the bath tube with warm water then put a whole gallon of vinegar in it, stay for about 20 minutes relaxing, then shower and shampoo with sulfur soap, it helps a lot, at least to me, lots of black fleckes when I rinse the tub. Then apply a mix of tea tree oil and almond oil on face, neck, breast area, side of torso and on the rest I apply "Hollywood Beauty Sulfur cream" it has also Jojoba oil, camphor, menthol, lanoline, etc, it is supposed to be for the scalp, but it works fine on my legs, back, buttocks ,etc. Another day surviving these sobs!

I got a pump spray bottle. I mix 1 cup of the nonscented arm & hammer powder with one gallon of hot water. I saturate my bed and pillows with it and let it dry. I do it every morning so it drys during the day. I wash my sheets once a week. These damn things cannot live through the accumulated A&H.

They are also most likely in your computer, especially the inside the keyboard.

Hey Birdmitestortured, I couldn't agree more! I read a post somewhere on this forum (can't remember where outta the thousands I have now read) that talked about using the tea tree oil on a moist hand towel over the keyboard and mouse. So I have been trying that for a few days now, it seems to be working, but not sure since I do not feel near as much activity now that I am on the oral Ivermectin.

I also saw black spots of skin leaving my body after taking a hot bath by applying coconut oil on my body. After applying coconut oil I scratched with my nails on the itching portions. Then on getting a relief for itching soak a towel in hot water and apply on it. You will see hot spots of skin leaving your body. This is the scabies mites leaving your body and relief for itching. Please try this.
