omigosh, have heard this before- please do tell how it goes. Whats the tyoe of tobacco? just regular or one of those blended types?
nothing happened it's almost 3 hours ..... red spots all over chest appeared and i don't think anything happened... the tobacco i used was.... black and wet messed leaves together i don't know it's name... my friend bought it from a shop.
i am thinking of making it more concentrated by boiling the water and making it kind of dark fluid. it might work.
but didn't felt any buzz or dizziness after applying it.
i applied only at my abdominal and chest area.... i have scabies for over 5 years.... so much confused about my future and i have to breakup with my g.f to avoid this problem from being transferred. life is hell.:(

Sounds like it agitated them into activity, maybe thats something to work from. Try to read some research if you can.

I noticed the country on your ID, and you have some of the best doctors in the world over there- dont any know about parasitology? And talk about widespread- there's posters from all over the world on here. I read another thread today about this being a plague since 2000 or so. Docs at the time decided to let it run its course.

With stupid advice from docs not to apply treatments to face or scalp, over the past decade they've trained/created a super-strain that *prefers* face and scalp.

The scabies used to nest in body-hair follicles during one of their stages. Nowadays, they're using scalp-hair follicles. Even if they're not biting your scalp, they're using it during part of their life cycle.

Sorry about your g/f. What a caring person you are. It may not seem like it now, but its the right thing to protect someone. Once you get rid of it, I bet she'll be back.

just had a thought in this foggy old brain. You know how permethrin works better with piperonyl butoxide? maybe the tobacco needs something, or some different treatment, to activate the right parasite-killing properties?

Hey everyone I'm new here. I was reading all of the posts on this site pertaining to scabies mites. It's been very informative as far as all of the experiences alot of you have had in dealing and/or trying to deal and cope with this affliction. I recently have come to the conclusion that I've also got scabies mites and I think I might know where I got them. Was recently having to stay in a hospital so go figure. Anyway, does someone have any good suggestions about what exactly I need to do to fight this off for good? Thanks

The tobacco didn't worked, i applied two times it doesn't kill scabies,
i know india have good doctors but it also have large number of bad doctors, i have used everything related to this disease, overdoses of ivermectin and
the teatment that worked to a extent was mortien and baygon spray.... afterwards i saw it also failed.
then i tried himalya toothpaste that really worked and gave me relief...(they die without oxygen) but i am not getting rid of it cause i still have this disease in my scalp which comes to my face and body again.

i don't see any sign of bumps or spots just itching,
at initial years it was totally like scabies but know the parasites and really stronger.

A doctor called me mad and said you don't have any problem, the problem is in your brain.
but i know the symptoms and it's scabies.

my girlfriend and i was planing to marry after one or two years but i don't see any hope, i told her everything in starting days of relation and she loves me so much that she is with me till now.
i don't want to loose her.:(

Nik if you're still having problems maybe look into clove oil for scabies.

In starting days the symptoms was just like scabies, there were spots, bumps and damaged skin all over. all medicines were working fine but i was careless so it kept coming back and mites became stronger.... and now nothing works. the symptoms are only seen in peak summers.... now doctors also don't beleive me, i say it feels like pin pricks, it's everywhere in scalp, chest abdomen, back, chest, face also.
i can see cracks on my soap, they are so strong.
yes it's a curse thats ruining my life.

the only thing that showed me good results was toothpaste. himalaya toothpaste, but it difficult to keep it on body for 12 hours to kill scabies by suffocating them.

We (my husband, myself and our two children ages 4 &6) were recently exposed to scabies. My 4 year old was the first to show symptoms of bug bites but when we went to the pediatrician, she didn't know what it was. Just some sort of bite. Apparently not all scabies infestations look the same. Once we did find out it was scabies, we did the permetherin cream and it didn't work for us. I then did days and days of research on natural treatments. I am soooooo relieved to say that after 3 days of this "treatment" we are all seeing positive results. I do want to say, I am not a Dr., herbalist or anything of the sort. Just a desperate mom using my gut and going off of what worked for others. I hope it works for you. It has been a nightmare for us. Here is what we are doing:

First of all, we bagged literally everything we could and are keeping it separate so it doesn't get contaminated. Decorative pillow, blankets, towels stuffed animal, ect.
Then, I sprinkled some diatemaceous earth ALL OVER the house and let it sit over night. I mean on the floors, the furniture, the beds, everywhere. I let it sit over night and vacuumed it all up the next day. Please keep in mind that although it is not toxic if eaten (only if it is food grade can you eat it) but it is toxic to breath, so keep open windows while doing this part. I bleached anything I could and what couldn't be cleaned with bleach I cleaned with a disinfectant. The next day we had our carpets steam cleaned. I am cleaning the house everyday from top to bottom. Vacuum every day!!! It is exhausting, but necessary. I also spray the beds,furniture,carpets and curtains daily with tea tree oil and 1ml of clove oil diluted in water.
For our bodies we make sure we shower in the AM then slather on the mixture I made of 1ml clove oil, 20 drops of neem oil and 20 drops of tea tree oil in 8oz of coconut oil as my carrier. Whatever oz of carrier oil you use, make sure only 6% of it is clove oil or it can burn your skin. We only use towels once, clothes once pillow cases and sheets once. Then wash everything at the end of the day in HOT water, before we bathe in HOT water with Epsom salt, hydrogen peroxide and a few drops of tea tree oil in it. We sit in this bath for at least 15 mins then scrub gently with Borax. Be gentle as it is very abrasive. Then we air dry, or dry with the hair dryer (the mites hate heat),and slather on more of the oil blend I made.
This has been a nightmare for us and I am exhausted, but soooo happy to have found something that works. We also take some benadryl for the itching.
As I mentioned it has been 3 days and we are now itch free. It was suggested to do treatment for at least a week though. I probably will stop using the borax now, but continue the cleaning and oil for at least 2 weeks. From what I read it is important not to quit to early because there is a gestation period for the mites in which they may not dye from the treatment until they hatch. So, we will see. As I said before, I am not a doctor, herbalist, aromatherapist or anything. I just did a bunch of research and put together my own plan based off of what worked or didn't work for others.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to email me at [email protected]

Good luck and God Bless

It wouldn't be enough for a human. It is made for very small animals. And the reason they make this for small animals is because they can overdose on the 1% injectible for cattle, and the horsepaste. Correct dosing is very important, and you should always use caution, especially when administering to small dogs and cats. Correct dosage is very important with ivermectin. Can cause blindness in cats, dilated pupils, loss of balance, coma in cats, tremors, you name it. Look at the size of these drop bottles - 5 ml. that's not enough for a human. It sold in England; can it be shipped to United States? Also, these are just some things I have learned along the way. Always consult a qualified medical physician.

I used the 1.87% Ivermectin horse paste. only thing that worked for me. Dosing is measured in 250 pound increments and is the same 200-mcg/kg dosage that Merck who makes Stromectal the human prescription variety. Didn't taste that bad either. Took on an empty stomach with lots of water, no food for 1 hour after. I did three treatments second 4 days after the first and last seven days after second. It worked for me. Itch was bad 2 or 3 days after each treatment but got considerably better after last treatment. Lessons continued for 3 weeks but then stopped. been cured for 3 months now.

Are you all having these continued scabies confirmed by a doctor? My son got a biopsy done yesterday by his dermatologist to confirm that his continued itchy rash is still scabies. She explained that the reaction to the bites last long after the scabies are gone, making people assume they still have the actual infestation, and continuing the treatments that make the rashes worse. These creams are very toxic and your body may be responding to the over simulation or toxicity over continuous use of the creams. I researched this and it makes sense. Check out the post scabies itch syndrome and go see a dermatologist for confirmation before you keep putting these toxic creams on you're skin. You may be making the situation worse.
