I have been using aloe and sulfur soap for about 3 weeks now, there has been some back and forth, at first there was a massive retreat of the scabies brought on by the aloe gel, then there appeared to be a slowing down, than I thought the scabies were on maneuvers. I continued to use the aloe and the sulfur soap. I think it is actually working. I feel that the scabies are still with me but less and less. Good luck to everyone.

Hi, someone here suggested Listerine as an alternative to the otc's that most have already tried and had no success with. I spray it on when I feel an itch and it is helping.

You already know what my cure is. It's Stromectol (ivermectin) and Elimite permethrin cream. Your sulphur soap and aloe vera gel is good, too, but not a cure, by any means, unless, of course, you have a light case of scabies and you have a really good immunity, and you are not getting reinfested by people in your home, work, or from pets you may have.
I was reading the Imidacloprid thread yesterday, and you came on and said you were cured from sulphur soap. That was last year and you are still on here.... You are a plant here on this forum for people who are selling scabies products.

Look at post number 1763. Same tune....
yes I have said I was cured and that was last year. And I was cured for a while but they came back. I have got rid of them but so far they have always come back. I do not know why or wherefore they go or why they come back. My best guess is that I leave breeding pairs on my skin, or I am around people who carry them but do not have symptoms. I do not know. But as I said the aloe and the sulfur soap seem to do a good job if some what slow. If they do come back on me bad like they have done I will have to take more drastic measures. My biggest question is why?

It seems to really help and I just feel so relaxed now that yesterday my head feel down on the computer and all this sulphur powder got in my eyes and it really stings, and that seems to really help me through this. yesterday i mixed aloe vera jelly beans in a blender and that seemed to do the trick after I rubbed cayenne pepper on my big toe. it seems to be working I am at the stage where I am getting more relaxed and letting down my guard tehe saga continues.
You are doing a good job umather. Keep up the good work.

**Typo:
"Add the 2nd vial of military-grade permethrin to 1 gallon of water (and/or febreze) and spray EVERYTHING. This will be a 1.25% concentration, which is DOUBLE the recommended amount for insect-proof hunting clothes."
This should say 1 QUART of water/febreze to make 1.25% concentration.-NOT one gallon. Sorry for any confusion.
Thank you middian for this info, I may be going this route soon, so thanks again for this information.

Groin and hands is where scabies love to go. You have to make an appt with a doc. to get a rx for prem 5% at least 3 tubes, and apply 7 days apart.

I can not believe that the last time this page was updated was in February. I continue to use sulfur soap and aloe gel it is a slow process but I continue to get better. On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being cured,I would say I am at a 3. I am sleeping ok not much disturbance from scabies at night.

Scabies does not happen over night you do not wake the next morning with scabies. Scabies take time to develop. By the time you show signs of scabies like itching and a rash you have had scabies for a while. I do not have insurance so I took the cheap safe route which is sulfur soap and aloe vera gel organic aloe gel. Take a shower or bath as usual when you are done take the sulfur soap and lather up your whole body use a bath brush to work it into your skin be careful around your face and eyes get your back of course work the soap into the most effected areas especially. Every once in a while use the aloe gel scabies hate aloe. A good place to get sulfur soap is sulfurointment.com . for 25 dollars you get 8 bars free shipping and they ship fast. If you have a drug store call you pharmacist and ask them about 10 percent sulfur soap ask if they have it or if they can order it for you maybe you can get a bar that day should cost around 5 dollars, do not forget to also get a bath brush work it into your skin, not to hard but work it into the skin.

I was to get a wash cloth pour kerosene on the wash cloth and dab the cloth and kerosene all over you body. Leave on for a couple of hours then bathe and then repeat don't get it in your eyes and stay away from fire also you might try eating lime juice. And you might try sulfer pills if your not allergic to sulfer please consult a physician first before trying these home remedies.

Dont let your guard down!! That's the key, especially if you are trying for a cure with the sulfer soap and aloe vera without having used permethrin first. You have to bath or shower twice a day for six weeks, and that means everyone in your family. You will get through this, just be vigilant in the extreame. Another thought....sometimes the elderly can have scabies and not itch or show many symptoms. Are you around anyone who could fit in this category? That's why nursing homes can have horrible epidemics. These people can have thousands of mites and are highly contagious. You are probably getting reinfested from someone. Maybe even at work or something. Also, just wanted to add the one other thing that made a huge difference for us....plastic covers over the bed and pillows!!! Not especially comfy at first, but very helpful. The mites emerge from the bed when they feel the warmth of your body. They plastic stops them from getting to you. Then wash the sheets every day and spray plastic with Windex. Best of luck to you!!!

Ok so I've been on this form b4 many times. My family and I found out last year that we were exposed to scabies. We had no idea what it was at first as I'm sure most of you didn't either. Its wasn't till 3 months that we realized scabies after it was to the point where I was in tears constantly and many sleepless nights from the dreadful itching and insanity! We treated ouselfs right away and did all the steps of cleaning but a month later we were reinfested oh joy! Ok so that was November 2012. We have been scabies free now for almost 5 months. Well I just found out 3 weeks ago I am pregnant and a week after I started itching. Now I know your body goes through all sorts of changes while pregnant and strange itching and rash too but I'm wondering if its possible we have been infiltrated again by these buggers. Am I just being paranoid? Its been just mainly on my arms and hands. Small red spots pop up and itch for a bit then fade then again come and go. My 2 year old is itching as well now. The only signs on her are red spots on the bottom I'm assuming from her diaper but she scratches other places as well. Her shoulder and sides but there are no red bumps there. Please someone reply and give me some advice and piece of mind. Am I over reacting?
