Hey all. I was desperately searching this sight for answers for the past month. I tried permethrin several hundred times, tea tree oil, neem, sulphur, ivermectin etc etc etc. I had them in my hair and face as well. I am not 100 percent yet but I feel like the tides have turned. I believe the problem with most recurrent cases of scabies are that you don't have to have "crusted" scabies to be significantly infested. The longer you went un diagnosed the more bugs you will have to battle. Also, there are certain strains of resistant scabies. Don't worry that does not mean you will not be cured. Fortunately there is more than one mite killer available in your arsenal and I truly believe the cure is to mix it up to get those stubborn resistant bastards!!!! Oh yeah and patience!!! The problem is each mite killer works in a different way and kills different stages of the mite. For example permethrin is suppose to kill live mites AND eggs. However, I don't believe it kills ALL the mites and eggs I do believe that it kills some. Ivermectin only kills adult mature mites. It does not kill eggs or immature mites whose nervous system is not fully developed. However, ivermectin is key to kill those stubborn little guys that hide in their burrows and no other mite killer can touch. Sulphur kills all live mites including immature ones but it will not touch the eggs or the little bastards that burrow deep and won't come out to play. Sulphur is important though because the mites CANNOT become resistant to it. Tea tree oil only kills the surface crawlers but it is a great disinfectant and antiseptic agent to prevent bacteria from infecting wounds. Eurax cream will kill the mites but it is least potent except tea tree oil. It is however good to use during the day at work as it calms the skin and kills some mites. The key I believe is to use all of these products in rotation so you are constant killing mites before they lay more eggs and the cycle continues. You need to be aggressive and kill these bastards. Use permethrin one day a week on the same day you use the ivermectin so you kill them from the inside and out and get to as many eggs as possible. For those of you that think the iver does not work you are just taking it wrong. I took it wrong as well and did not think it was working. You need to take it before bedtime as mites are most active at night time. Take it in an empty stomach with one full glass of water. Do NOT eat for at least 4 hours after taking it or it will be useless. Do not shower for at least 24 hours after taking it or you will wash it right out of your skin. You will feel the scabies in your scalp pop or bubble. Take permethrin 10 percent and mix it with half conditioner. Slather it all over your scalp and head when you use the iver and in lotion for the body. Always start with your hair and scalp when treating. I repeat ALWAYS start with your hair and scalp when treating. Use the permethrin one time a week and the ivermectin use 2 days in a row one of those days on the same day as permethrin. On all other days use the sulphur, eurax or tea tree to kill mites and to heal. Be careful with the sulphur it may burn if you use too much on sensitive skin. Repeat this for up to 5 weeks. Hope this helps!!! Be vigilant. Don't give up. It's a numbers game. Kill kill kill!!!!

I have had scabies for 6 years. This week I screamed not stop for 2 hours and cried for another 4 hours. they are all over my body and I can not get them out of my hair. I am afraid to go around anyone ever again. I have tried salt baths and bleach baths and 5% permethrin. My husband has never gotten this and thinks I'm crazy. The doctors do not think I have it because by the time I get into see them I have had such great success that they do not see any sign of the scabies. The only trouble is that they are in my hair and so they keep coming back. I have found success when I have a bath in salt water--6 cups to a bath and 30 drops of tea tree oil (soak for an hour) when I get out I spray All stop and blow dry the All Stop on my body , this has helped. I have had to do this over and over as they will not come out of my hair. So they come back on my body. I cut my hair real short but alas they are still in there. I can feel them crawling. I have put lemon juice on my hair over night in a bag and that has helped. I put salt and tea tree on my hair in a bag over night and that has helped as well. Right now I am trying lavender oil with coconut oil in my hair at night. It seemed to work well on my arm the other day. I have also used ice. If I put the ice on them for about 1/2 hour or more they seem to not come back to that spot. also silver gel has been very successful. The gel has to be on the spot for 3 to 4 days. I use plastic wrap.I sure would like to know how to get them out of my hair for good. I feel very desperate
On other thing you can try that may help you get them out of your hair is to mix about 1 tablespoon of tea tree oil into a full bottle of hair conditioner- mix it well then apply the conditioner to your scalp and hair each night making sure to work the conditioner down into your scalp, behind and inside of ears and hairline around your entire head. You'll know if you got the mixture strong enough if your scalp feels tingly, then wear a shower cap to bed and leave it on all night or as long as you can, then wash it out each day. You will have to be treating your body with something else at the same time, either the sulfur products if you haven't tried that yet. If you use the sulfur treatments, be prepared that it may take a month or two to finally get rid of them.

Has anyone out there used the permethrin on their head, scalp, and hair and on the face and after leaving it on for around 12 hours and washing it off....did you face and scalp feel really tight? I don't know if its just me or has anyone else had this problem? If so...what does it mean? Sorry if this sounds like a weird question...just want to know.

Yes I have felt that as well. I'm thinking extremely dry skin from all the chemicals. Not really sure though.

I just know I can't take it anymore! All I feel is these things crawling all over me and moving vibrations under my skin and biting everywhere. I broke down and did perm last night and its not helping. This is now the third tube and it won't go away. It's at the point its not itching all that much but I know they are still alive because I've seen the adults and the larvae on me...UGH....I've been dealing with this since at least November and I can't get rid of them!

Yes you probably should put lotion on and be good to your skin for awhile. Have you tried benzyl benzoate lotion or any other topical besides permethrin??? I have not but I am interested in the benzyl benzoate as I have not heard of any resistance to this. I'm just scared to make it myself as I heard you can burn yourself easily. My doctor refuses to believe anything other than permethrin is optimal for these things and he only prescribes one tube at a time. That's why I have been basically forced to use iver paste for horses and 10 percent permethrin. He doesn't even believe I actually have it. He said it's probably dermatitis but gave me a tube of permethrin anyway. I never heard of dermatitis making your skin crawl and biting feelings.

Okay because I've been putting lotion all over my hands ever since I washed it off. I've only tried the topical permethrin and did one dose of Stromectol and its not helping. If it was I would have had atleast a little bit of improvement but nothing...they haven't went away. I've been told that too....that its some kinda atopic dermatitis. I recently got 2 more RXs for perm for me and my son and my bf but I don't think its going to help anything because I think I have some very resistant strain of these or have so many....I don't know. I know you can get things like Benzyl Benzoate online as well as other usual RXs without a prescription but I'm so wary to do that though because of rip offs or ineffective meds.

Very good advice. Like you said its a numbers game and when you have had them for 6 + months or more you have to be aggressive with treatments because not matter what they keep breeding!

Not true. I have taken 10 days of Black Walnut Complex by Nature's Cure and I am almost mite free. You can take the supplements up to 30 days without damaging your body. Maybe you took the wrong brand. So Far I have taken 6 days of the dawn bath with Oxy, 7 days of Dead Sea salt bath with peroxide, tea tree oil and clove oil. I washed my hair the first ten days in the tub. Now I wash my hair every three days with Oxg Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner and get under the dryer at the hottest setting for an hour. Also, Oxg also make a serum that will turn mites into rocks like coconut oil. If your hair is short you can brush the rocks out quickly.

What works for me may not work for you. My husband never got burrows and didn't need the supplements. The coconut oil was enough for him. I think it is all in your immune system. I never sweat and unless I'm working out or in the sauna. My husband sweats all day long. Drink lots of water and find what works for you.

Where are you getting the Oxi Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner? And the Black Walnut Complex by Nature's Cure? Plus...did you try the sauna cure? Does it work to get them off of you/kill them? How long do you have to go for and at what temperature?

I hear you Ash... I am sensitive to most medicine. If I take Tylenol for three days I will break out in hives. So naturally I want to try herbal supplements first. I am not 100% convinced it will work. But I'm willing to try. I have suffered for four years now. I have keep my symptoms to a minimum. So I'm am hopeful that with all that I am using with the Black Walnut Complex I will get over this.
Two thing that keep me from itching is the Hollywood Beauty Tea Tree oil and switching to virgin coconut oil every two or three days. This alone has been my saving grace. I have learn the hard way to put on my scalp what I put on my skin. My hair is short and oily but I am not in pain. Recently I switch the clove oil to oregano. Its funny how you use something and the first day it works great. Then the second day not so great, third day not at all. I hate that.
Now I am willing to use supplements for 30 days and take a two week break and use them again before I use horse paste. I am making an appointment (while I am on the supplement break) to the Infectious disease Center for extra insurance. I'm also relocating to a southern state here soon and I hope the heat will help me sweat them out as well.
Sosad... Oxg Coconut products are found at Target, Walmart, and some grocery stores. Its an organic based product and I like it. I got the Black Walnut Complex at my local nutrition store, the manager recommended it. You can order it online Nature's Answer Black Walnut Complex. The sauna does help, sweating help tremendously, anything that will help impurities out will help them come out. No it wont kill them, but it will make them drop off. It is a war. I try to stay in the sauna at least 30 minutes, but the longer you can stay the better your results. The temp should be whatever makes your sweat a lot, 100 or more degrees. When you do this make sure to remove the sweaty clothes immediately and bag them. The mites will move to your clothing and sit there until you cool off.
Ok my derm told me to eat more oregano as a anti parasite. Put it in your salad, on chicken and any Italian dish of course.

Why the hell are thrre soooo many people suffering from this but so little spread awareness about this problem? Im starting to wonder if the docs or dermatologist s even know how to cure this. I have this in my hair , body bed clothhes and bed. At nihht I itch n my bf used to think I was mad until he started feeling the itch too. Many years ago we actually thought it was fleas, we used sprays, borax, flea shampoo, flea bombs... and thr fuckers always came bk... thought it was cause of a friends pet. We have none of our own and never have. We stopped seeing the friends to prevent re infestation but it didnt work, after a few weeks theyd always be bk.... so weve realised its not fleas... maybe dust mites, maybe scabies... maybe, n this sounds mad, but maybe a totally new breed? That hasn't before b3en discovered n thus giving an explanation as to why no one can help when we go to the docs.. or why conventional treatments dont seem to be as effective?

I have come to the conclusion that what I need to do is get rid of it in my hair first, along with body and beddings etc... I might do my hair, apply the oils and sulfur cream etc etc and just abandon my home for 2 weeks. Come bk, spray the house, hoover, change sheets, do the couch and leave again for another few days. Taking hot showers, washing my hair everynihht in the mean time as well. That should do the trick...

I worry about reinfestation from public transport here in London. I think I might stop using the seats....

:/
This is such a gruesome, traumatic experience. I truly can't believe more is not being done to expose this issue and make this wide spread. Why is more not being done to investigate this problem... it cant be in all of our heads at the same time. We cant all be having a shared delusion, there are physical marks, proof of the problem in so many peopl... what will it take for more research to be done to investigate this issue n tackle this and end this problem once and for all?

Sorry for mistakes in spelling, Im rushing, late to bed and using a tablet, not used to the touch pad yet....

Okay...I will have to check out the stores. I finally got Walgreens to order me some De La Cruz sulfur ointment. Its 10% sulfur so hopefully that will work. Got 3 jars that are like 3oz. I think....cost me almost $21.00 for that! That is crazy! They said it would be like around a week when I can come back and pick them up. Toooo long! I was gonna get some clove oil and grape see oil and try that, found it at a health food place....but didn't get it. I heard that clove oil is easy to OD on but I don't really know. Have you tried any of these? I'm trying t find a gym that has a sauna in it but it's too late right now to call and check so I guess I'll have to wait til tomorrow. I wonder if like a sea salt scrub and chemical peel would help? LOL...don't know if it would or not but what could it hurt to try? I also found this spa that does some kind of scalp treatment to heat and exfoliate the scalp...since I have them on my head....for both treatments its almost $200.00....also though maybe putting peroxide on my scalp would help...I don't know. Trying to come up with a solution. Going to get my hair cut really short tomorrow to help get some kind of treatment to get through all my hair....sad....I hate to cut all my hair off but if that is what has to be done...I guess so be it.

I don't ingest clove oil so I'm not concern about overdosing. I put it in my bath now instead of directly on my skin. It works great. I actually see dead bugs in the tube when I go back to clean it. Anything that removes layers on your skin as well as make you sweat is a relief. But you need to get something that will work from the inside out. Weather its medication or supplements, do one or the other, keep your skin moist and drink lots of water. I hope you feel better soon.

Tip; I microwaved my pillows 30 seconds and I could brush dead bugs right off. I folded the pillow microwaved it for 30 seconds turn it the other way and microwaved it again for 30 seconds. Works great!

Oh no...I wouldn't ingest it either...I just maybe misunderstood about applying it topically. Do you mix the clove oil and grape seed oil together? And how long do you normally leave it on before you shower it off? Yeah this scrub thing is supposed to be a sea salt scrub then they put some kind of acid all over your body and then peel it off after so long....then wrap you in like some kind of cocoon to detoxify your body....hopeing it works. I've been putting tons of lotion on but it doesn't seem to be making a difference....still extremely dry and behind my ears now its very rough....crusty feeling....same as my face and scalp. I don't know how to get it off. I've tried facial scrubs and exfoliating cloths....but its not getting it. Tried rubbing alcohol as well....didn't do anything. Been also drinking more water...need to make it as that is the only thing I'll be drinking. Did you ever try the sulfur ointments or clove oils topically?

I have scrubbed with sulfur soaps and exfoliating gloves, which you should get by the way. The gloves costs 2 or 3 dollars at Walgreens. The gloves actually put the mites right out of your skin. I have scratches to prove it. I tried to find sulfur powder but only found MSM sulfur pills. I didn't think Vaseline was thick enough, with or without sulfur. That was early on and I may have not used it properly and I have read that will work well. Keep your face oily. I mainly use the coconut oil on my face. I know that sounds gross and it takes some getting use to. But, I have found the coconut oil really improves my skin and its the one thing I can put in my eyes. I rolled mites right out off my eye lids. I have put clove oil on topically mix with the Hollywood Beauty Tea Tree oil. It works great. But I need to give my body a break from it. I am going to use the clove oil mix with tea tree only every three days now.
My scalp is the biggest problem. I can always find something to get them off my body. I think the reason is; most of the oils I use will make the mites ball up. its hard to get the balls out of my hair. I vigorously brush while standing outside, I pour vinegar in my hair in between washing and conditioning. If I use the gel, I can suffocate the surface mites, but then mites bite deeper. if I use a curling iron the mites multiply close to my scalp and if I use chemicals like perms or dyes, it only works for that day. The next day they are biting again and you can't re-dye your hair enough. Again if you find something to work from the inside out it will enhance all the above treatments. Also, go to the beauty salon and get under the dryer for close to an hour. The heat will cook all the lives mites out as well. Problem with that method is they may go down to your body and wait until you cool off and go right back to your scalp. Always keep the smock on while under the dryer. Its a war. Just keep shoot at the front line and try to win the battle. Off to the sauna take care.

I have scrubbed with sulfur soaps and exfoliating gloves, which you should get by the way. The gloves costs 2 or 3 dollars at Walgreens. The gloves actually put the mites right out of your skin. I have scratches to prove it. I tried to find sulfur powder but only found MSM sulfur pills. I didn't think Vaseline was thick enough, with or without sulfur. That was early on and I may have not used it properly and I have read that will work well. Keep your face oily. I mainly use the coconut oil on my face. I know that sounds gross and it takes some getting use to. But, I have found the coconut oil really improves my skin and its the one thing I can put in my eyes. I rolled mites right out off my eye lids. I have put clove oil on topically mix with the Hollywood Beauty Tea Tree oil. It works great. But I need to give my body a break from it. I am going to use the clove oil mix with tea tree only every three days now.
My scalp is the biggest problem. I can always find something to get them off my body. I think the reason is; most of the oils I use will make the mites ball up. its hard to get the balls out of my hair.

I got some exfoliating gloves at wal mart...its only been like a couple of days so I will have to see how it goes. I think tomorrow I might go ahead and get the clove oil with the grape seed oil and try that. I guess I'll put it on tomorrow night and just keep it on. Do you normally wash it off after what 24 hours and then just keep repeating it for so many days? I plan on drying my hair blonde...hopefully the peroxide will kill some of them and usually they do keep you under there for around an hour. I know for me ever since I did my first permethrin cream back on Dec. 10th, all I feel is the biting, crawling, and like movement/vibrations under my skin....which to me is worse than the itching....at least for me....but like you said everyone is different. Yes....and esp when you've had this a while....right now it just seems like I'm "maintaining" the numbers....not actually curing. Well I did find a gym that has a inferred sauna. Do you think it would be good enough? Talk to ya soon and let me know.

All of that will help with symptoms. You need something internally to fight as well. whether its medication or supplements. I'm feeling more normal everyday with the black walnut complex supplements. I have added to my diet lots of oregano and a glass of pomegranate juice.
After you wash your hair consider a hood hair dryer to cook them out. I found one for $20 at Kmart. I bought a $56 at Sally Beauty Supply,(it was a better quality). You will need to sit under it for 40 minutes to an hour. Also in between washing and conditioning put apple cider vinegar on your scalp for 15 minutes add the conditioner and let that sit for another 15 minutes. Rinse and get under the dryer. That's how I cook them out of my scalp.
Put the oils on before you go into the sauna. Try to brush your clothing a few times while your in there. The mites will sit on your clothes until you cool off. Clothing doesn't get as hot or as wet as your skin and the mites will find refuge on your clothes. I have used the grape seed oil and clove before, however I like the results from the Hollywood tea tree oil better. If you get worried about the clove oil you can use less and once a week.
I also have used Neem oil soap. Works great at killing them head to toe. Wet yourself all over, turn the water off and scrub with Neem oil soap with the exfoliating gloves for 10 to 15 minutes. You will see them drop to the floor dead. Then I rinse it all off. Neem oil soap doesn't work well if you use it everyday. The mites adjust to them and the same for everything you use they will get use to it, except; bleach, heat, cold, clove. Be sure to always put something on your skin after you shower; coconut oil works great and will lesson irritations.
Oh and the shampoo is made by Organix Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner produced by Ogx. Its shaped sorta like and egg. Forgive me for typing the name wrong I have dyslexia really bad.
