I have had the scabies going on two months now, I have used the cream three times and the pills twice with the cream, I have done every thing I have read to do plus more and I still have them. I had been spending a lot of time with my lady friend and her family 3/4 days and nights per week, In the beginning I did not realize I had scabies and thought I was experiencing the itching because of a lack of vitamin B, I have had itching before when my levels fall off, I took vitamin B and the itching continued, a trip to my doctor and I was told I had scabies. I was horrified thinking that I must have given the scabies to my lady friend and her children.My lady friend was treated and had never had symptoms, her children were not treated but had no symptoms. Why did I have scabies while my lady friend in her family never had them or symptoms of them? It finally dawned on me it was not luck it was the fact that my friend and her daughters are all smokers, nicotine is a poison and has been used as an insecticide for years. I do not smoke. I went to the pharmacy and purchased the 21mg patch. I am on my second day with the patch and my symptoms have decreased. The eggs of the scabie mite hatch out in four days, I expect to be scabie free in another 4 days.Excited by the possibility of having found a cure for scabies I did a search to see if their was a patent on using the nicotine patch. It appears that I am too late to file a patent it has already been filed. You can view the patent by going toI do not like to speculate, but this poster apparently used nicotine topically on scabies on skin. Maybe mixed 100% pure chewing tobacco with water and applied topically. Or steeped non chemical treated tobacco leaves in boiled water and applied as a topical tincture. Tobacco does kill parasites, that is why smokers have statistically less asthmatic conditions then non smokers (hookworms and microfilarial parasites, threadworm parasites etc infect the asthmatics lungs and liver)Studies found tobacco smokers have less asthma due to higher immune to these lung parasites because they smoke tobacco. Tobacco repels worms. That is why american indians and tribal communities and herbalists use tobacco as a medicine, for its anti helminth/anti worm properties.
As poster noted unless you do your homework on nicotine, applying it topically could be harmfull unless you know what you are doing.
Remember every non independant study you read could be a lie, SALESMEN and SALESWOMEN lie constantly to sell products, some SALESPEOPLE lie to sell misdiagnosis to make people sick to get more medical business. Bad mds are SALESPEOPLE who sell fabrication studies, no cure and misdiagnosis for thier own profit or ulterior motives. Pure research is INDEPENDANT RESEARCH not tied to any money, sale, product or ulterior motive. The BEST research is subjective self research, self trial and error based on self study and common sense,that works and helps you.
Interesting post on tobacco, bet it does kill scabies dermally. Topical dosage would be the critical factor.
I will back in four days to report my progress with the nicotine patch. Till then good luck with your scabies I hope they are gone and you and your family are scabie free
