Me too! I think my body reacted negatively to such thoughts. After I changed my way of thinking and promised my body Id never do that, I started to get the energy back to fight this and make progress!!!!

Ive had scabies for about 3 months now. It is by far the worst thing that has ever happened to me. Suicide had popped into my mind but I would never do it...nothing is ever that bad. I ran into a site where someone posted about using a hair dryer to stop the itching. This was the greatest thing that's ever happened. Anyone with scabies who cannot take the itching at night SPOT TREAT WITH A BLOW DRYER as hot as you can handle. It releases your body's natural antihistamines and stops itching almost immediately. I put the blow dryer as hot as it goes and essentially burn my skin...which feels quite good for some reason (might just be me though...). It has changed my scabies experience and although I might not be able to have kids anymore, (from frying certain parts of my anatomy :p) at least I can get through the days and nights without the unbearable itch. I know this isn't a cure whatsoever, just simply a way to get through the ungodly discomfort. Hope this helps someone.

the emotions for me are radical.although ive never considered suicide at least not yet im on a emotional roller coaster.some days im hopeful,somedays depressed.sometimes im depressed and hopeful in the same day.ive considered asking my pcp for a mood stabilizer like wellbutrin.
sometimes these forums bum me out,sometimes they give me hope.however i truly feel my only hope for a cure is on these forums as the md's ive seen are absolute tools.i find it amazing this little bug which has been around for 2500 years,documented,can outsmart so many docs.evrything from diagnosis to treatment is so old school.even the CDC is clueless.google "scabies studies" and read them. even the studies admit that diagnosis is missed 50% of the time and that scabies is a neglected disease.
i will never ever forget my fear and despair when i discovered the derms couldnt help me.lost 20lbs out of pure fear.im still very afraid that ill never be cured,that my life will fall apart completely.whenever i find a cure on these forums i bookmark it,ill just keep trying and maybe one of the cures will work.just had a new bite as i type this.just swung into depressed,guess current treatment failing.i dont think i could ever commit suicide but sometimes i feel these mites WILL be the death of me.iver overdose or something.
thx for blow dryer trick,gonna look funny buying a blow dryer w my hair cut down to 1/8th inch.

Hi, in the Bible there is the story of Job which is good reading for all of us. Job held on to God even when he got sores all over his body. Let's hold on to God no matter what. You are right, one day at a time.
I am thinking about Job often! It is hard to comprehend that we are left so without help in the 21st century.

It totally sucks to feel so totally abandoned by the medical community. THis forum has some golden info here but also alot of horror stories that may drive you more crazy! Their horror story doesnt mean its going to be yours.

You really dont know what the future brings. Always remember that. You could very well be rid of this nightmare next month.

like walking up a never flight of stairs, you just have to keep taking a step, one step at a time. When you are constantly looking up for the top of those never ending stairs, you get depressed when you cant see it.

In my case, I just keep stepping and don't look up and focus on doing what ever I can to beat this and keep moving. Just keep moving. Also looking down ( referring to the past when life was better) only adds to the stress.

Now is all that matters. Do the very best in the now. Do all you can do in the now.

We are on earth for our own souls personal reasons. We will eventually fulfill that purpose. Along the way, we experience tragedies, set backs and unexpected woes. Some last longer than others some seem unbearable but life goes on so long as we let it.

Or do any of you with scabies often think of suicide as a way out?
I can you that I am there right now. I have had scabies for about a year and a half. The reason I can't get rid of them is I have a daughter that goes to her mothers on the weekends. I have treated several times and have asked my ex to treat as well. She is refusing. Saying she doesn't have it. I have every symptom I have ever read about. Not to mention a rash that expands every day. I am in complete and total misery both mentally and physically. This arguement even ended up in court because i started refusing visitation until she treated because I was just getting reinfested with my daughter going back and forth. The judge took the mothers side and told me I have no legal authority to insist she treat or withhold visitation. I was nearly slapped with contempt of court for refusing visitation. The sad fact is there is so many people that she has exposed to this that by the time her symptoms become too obvious to ignore she will have exposed half the city. And because of that get reinfested herself in turn reinfesting my daughter and I over and over. I don't see an end to this. I really don't ever seeing this going away. My itching is intense. What this issue does to your mind is torture in a literal sense. I am itching almost constantly and I cant stop thinking about whats going on inside my body thats making me itch. recently i treated again. Not because i thought I was going to get rid of it but only to get some relief knowing it wasnt going to go away but could actually get better for some time. and it did get better for like 2 weeks. But now I am full blown itching like crazy. I can't sleep and thats only driving me more crazy. I have never felt this sort of helplessness. I have never in my life felt so hopeless. I have no idea how to get relief I so desperately need. Suicide has definitely entered my mind. Those thoughts increase every day. My mind just keeps screaming "MAKE IT STOP." Its like a horror movie

Get your doctor involved, they have allot of say.

you are not the only one.


Notice in the comments, the women rally to the mothers side even thought the father in the video does not say anything negative and only expresses concern.

You can only do your best with this unfortunate situation which is all too common.

This being said, I'm sure that this same thing often occurs with fathers being the ones doing the infecting and the mother being frustrated.

I'm Not in an amuseable mood these days, but I do find it interesting how many cannot read a topic subject and post accordingly. Maybe, I'm just fussy, but I'll try.

Yes, I have heard of a few second hand, obviously. When reading about suicides, I am often wondering if at the core there was this dreaded illness. I know mine will be so.

I felt like I wanted to commit suicide...it sucks that you can't be around people you love in the fear that they may catch this disgusting mite, and that you could be one of those people who do have this for years. Spending money on oils, meds, dr appt and nothing works. Telling dr's you feel a certain way and they dismiss you...you start to feel crazy. You just want to hug your baby and you can't this is very depressing.

Yes, I felt like commiting suicide because of the itch, it was so extreme. I've been working and I avoid scratching at work. I don't scratch at work because it's embarrassing. Especially my private area. It's been jeopardizing my work and the way I function in life. Well with that said, on to the war!

TREATMENTS:
Clove oil used to work for me but now the mites seem to adapt to the oils I apply, clove, lavender and tea tree oil.
So I ended up using sulfur soap, which I bought at http://www.sulfursoap.com/ . Which seems to be working. I also am using what my doctor prescribed me, Triamcinolone Acetonide and used 5% permethrin; I used the permethrin only once on my body. It worked, I had a load of bites, marks and rashes on my legs, groin and stomach area. They are slowly disappearing due to the permethrin and the triamcinolone. I keep applying Triamcinolone cream twice a day on affected areas and the red bumps/ rashes are slowly turning grey. Which is a good sign.

However, I keep getting new burrows on my hands and the web of my fingers and my back. I don't want to use the permethrin due to its toxicity and side effects. So I just bought Pomada De Azufre Sulfur Ointment and Kleen Free Naturally, 8oz. The Kleen Free. I'm waiting for my orders to come in the mail. However the the reviews for Kleen Free seems to be promising against scabies. I cant wait to use them.

I'm halfway done with the battle.
If your condition is urgent please seek a dermatologist not a doctor. Don't be embarrassed, they've seen millions of cases like these.

Remember to NEVER GIVE UP and NEVER SURRENDER. A GOOD BUG IS A DEAD BUG. GOD SPEED TO YOU OUT THERE.

And also what helped was, BOOSTING my immune system. I noticed these scabies popped around my body when I was stressed and would skip meals, due to work environment. And right after work I would run the track on a cold rainy midnight, even though I was really tired. Then I would sleep right after, and sleeping for 5 to 6 hours a day. This eventually lowers the immune system and you are susceptible to getting infested. So I ate healthy, drank green tea, ate broccoli, drank my daily vitamins, consumed a lot of vitamin C, drank plenty of water, consumed omega 3 fatty acids, and anti oxidants. And this really helped me tremendously in battling scabies.
So the key is to boost your immune system.

I have also thought about suicide. Our nightmare started 5 years ago when we brought home a cat from a local shelter. We had her for a year before we realized what it was. I was covered in a horrible rash and I couldn't sleep at night. We got rid of the cat and mites but it comes back almost every year. The longest we (me my husband and daughter) have gone without it is about 18 months. I have no idea where it's coming from, we don't have any more pets. We just seem to get it out of nowhere. In the late spring or in the fall. We are fighting it again, have been for almost 2 months. We use oral cattle iver and cattle perm. I have some sulfur soap so I'm going to try that too. My husband and daughter finally agreed to do the iver and sometimes they'll do perm. I thought I had gotten rid of them but 2 nights ago I got a spot on my leg, it looked like a big whitehead pimple and it has just started all over. This has been one of the roughest times. I have thought about ending it but then I think about my daughter and how much she means to me. and then I think of fighting again.....

Read my post Expert Advice from 2 days ago. You will be free of this is you do what I say. I know from a year's experience and battle with this trying everything until I found out exactly what to do. Read all my posts. You either take advice from people on this forum who STILL HAVE scabies after years or someone who has beat it and knows what they are talking about. Good luck and God bless. scabimex

Scabimex is no expert. It is a spam.
I have tried to help you, but you are not teachable cindilu. You keep saying I am no expert and I am scamming or spamming you. I most certainly am an expert - not only because I am a licensed pest control operator for 35 years (and former president of a stae PC association), but ALSO because I have already been through this MYSELF and beat it! Dammit if you don't want help fine, then quit asking me for help and then criticizing me when I give it to you. What is wrong with you people? Maybe you have lost your minds?(I can certainly relate to that level of stress believe me, I felt the same way in the torment for a year). I posted the photos of the medicines I used and a REAL way to help you. Do you people want to keep on listening to the advice of people who STILL HAVE SCABIES and keep roaming around this forum like Zombies just judging and merely criticizing people who are genuinely trying to help you and have ACTUALLY BEAT THIS or do you want to spend another year or two in this insanity when it CAN be beat? If you talk to practically ANY doctor in MEXICO or Latin America they will tell you I am 100% right and these critics do not know what they are talking about! Prove me wrong and call one. many doctors in Mexico also speak English.This was even the regime they used to cure the probelm in the school here in Nevada that had a pack of kids infected last summer. Do your dam research! Do you all just have a critical spirit of sincere and honest people? Have you become THAT jaded? Then don't keep crying about your problem!! Why do you even keep looking and listening to fools who still have it? I am not a joker like many on this forum, I'm a 60 year old man and my intention is merely to help because of what I went through myself with it too. Ok then, God judge you and leave you in your torment!
