Oh, almost forgot...dried all on high heat dryer for 2 hrs at least after washer. And kept shoes, keys, purse in freezer. Prayed day and night. Listened to healing scripture cd's and praise and worship music that I finally sang along with...big difference!

Forgot something else...kept DE on hands and in latex gloves always when at home and changed them often. Before the above cure I had been treating with sulfer soap and ointment 24/7 practically, for months, plus reg dose ivermectin horse paste, and spot treating with clove bud controlled but didn't cure!

I have been using sulfur soap and aloe vera gel. I have been doing this for about well anyway for over a month, but not much more than a month, this is not expensive. I have also been taking food grade diatomaceous soil once a day. It is working I am not totally cured I know that, but I am getting there. I take about one teaspoon of diatomaceous soil a day. The aloe gel which costs about 10 dollars for 32 ounces really works the scabies hate it and with the sulfur soap seems to be a cure. I got my sulfur soap from inexpensive. So good luck to all.

Be v careful not to wear stuff that you bagged months ago, without properly washing it. I made that mistake thinking that eggs or larvae would surely be gone and in consequence now am taking ivermectin again.
I still have three little amber spots (nodules?) on my testicles after all this time (I know, TMI) and wonder if they could be the source of anything remaining and what to do -- besides putting meds & creams on them. Sigh.
Please folks, we all have to read posts with a grain of salt (sea salt and otherwise) but so much bickering! Sounds like the scabies talking :(
I think that the scabies only lay there eggs under your skin and that is the only place.

Hi - healed - so happy for you! Thanks for sharing your tips. I have been fighting this battle for 8 months, though have been 90% cured for about 5 of those months. I think that the last part was the DE in my hair, as you mentioned, because for a long time the only place I would see bites would be my shoulders, back and arms.

Possibly we are making this too hard. I read that people who have chickens just dust them with DE from head to toe, as well as their coops. They almost never have to even do it twice to get rid of mites. If it works for chickens, why not us?

So - I sleep with DE on my sheets, both top and bottom every night, about 1/3 cup. I only change sheets once a week. In the morning, I powder myself with more DE before I get dressed. How easy is this? You should see the bites drying up right away. Here is a quote from a bug expert as to how DE works:

"The DE absorbs oils, waxy layer of insect cuticle that gives rise to dehydration. It can absorb up to 6 times its volume in fluids. It is slightly abrasive and used in toothpaste. It does not slice and dice insects as so many websites explain about how it kills bed bugs."

Please get FOOD GRADE DE - I had to order mine on amazon, a 5 lb bag. It is cheap.

Also, I found that a dehumidifier running 24/7 for a few weeks did a way better job than the constant crazy cleaning. Mites need moisture to survive. It makes sense.

Finally - your computer! I put my laptop in a sealed bag every night with moth balls. This is important as otherwise they will hide in the keyboard and re-infest your hands.

If this helps even one person to regain sanity then I am thrilled. I pray for the posters in this forum.

Blessings on you.

My cure for getting rid of scabies:

Coal tar soap or lye soap for showers/baths
Add tea tree oil to shampoo
Clove oil to laundry
Safe solutions Diatomaceous Earth -to clean house(food grade quality) put this on ever bit of fabric that can't be washed (bed, sofa, carpet, chairs)
Tea trea oil for all itches, put this on after every bath/shower
RID lice shampoo
Neem oil diluted - rub on entire infected area daily
Scrub with a Hot washcloth, then rub hydrogen peroxide on infected area: if they turn white and pussy it's most likely scabies

Did this for 2 weeks and scabies was gone, itches and all.
Make sure to wear long sleeves, long pants and socks until you rid yourself of scabies... So not to pass it to anyone else.

I did get hives right after I rid myself of scabies, my dermatologist said something I was applying to my skin I'm allergic to. So test out everything you put on your skin in a small area first.

Clove Oil is the only thing that got them for me. I put It on for 20 days straight. I mixed it with coconut oil and put it all over my body. I started noticing a difference about 4 to 5 days into it. Also it has a slight burning sensation but it will go away. Don't get it in your eyes and be careful around the genitals. I tried all the creams and pills from the doctor and clove oil was the stuff that worked. I had scabies for 6 months until use.

"I tried all the creams and pills from the doctor and clove oil was the stuff that worked. I had scabies for 6 months until use."

What percentage clove oil did you use?
My guess is that clove and tea tree and some other smilar oils are more or less equal and that an additional ingrediant is sher determination.
Another guess is that cocnut oil is very fine and sinks more deeply into skin layers than some oils.
I wonder if anyone has found that hot sun is also helpful? I'm getting close to the finish line, God willing, but warm weather is coming. Can we get some good vitamin laden sunlight and bring our skin temperature up to 125 and bake the critters crunchy as raisins in a muffin? Of course rehydrating ourselves at some point...

I have a 16mo old DD, and I did this treatment on myself only.

I never passed scabies to my husband/DD. they both did the permythin treatment, from neck to toes for 12hrs, than washed off. If I thought I saw a suspicious bump on my DD I would put a little tea tree oil on her, just as a precautionary.

Hope it works out for you

To cba above n all with not use my method posted just a few posts above!! It is possibly too harsh even for many adults. Use the manuka treatment for the children...very effective yet very mild! These things r resistant to ALL KINDS of harsh things that we've nearly killed ourselves using! But they just haven't built up a resistence yet to the very mild manuka oil, and possibly the star anise oil. Thank GOD. But the anise oil, unless properly diluted, would be way too strong for children. May God bless and heal u all

#3394 Apr 2, 2013
Just to confirm, I did get cured using the manuka scabies packet from (2 packets) and using undiluted star anise oil in between on worst areas...because the star anise oil is strong. Manuka is great for children, but the anise, unless properly diluted, would be way too strong. The manuka seems small, expensive, n weak, but stick with works. I'm glad my husband made me stick with it when I thought it seemed too mild to be effective. They just haven't formed a resistence to it...simple

My mother is ill a scab already a year and a half. a scab returns time after time. a scab went already on a person. we want ivermectin, because on a benzyl for claws already immunity.
Help us please. If to prick ivermectin, is it necessary(whether it is possible) to be smeared outwardly what that by preparation? if needed, then what? for example prick of ivermectin, and from above spregal? will not there be spregal to weaken the action of ivermectin? How to be with bathing? is it possible to bath, and when( in a day, in a week after a prick?) How to be with washing of hands? will not preparation be washed from under skins? and how to change a bed?
I am sorry if I write wrong, I do not know your shouting, and in my country can not cure a mother

I think you should order sulfur soap from and start using aloe gel pure organic aloe gel. You must work the sulfur soap into the skin I recommend a bath brush not to harsh but work it in let dry. At the same time you can use the aloe as you see fit. This has worked for me on a scale of one to ten, ten being the worst I am at a .5 I am not completely rid of them but almost. This method is cheap and not harsh I recommend getting the 8 bars of soap for 25 dollars that will last a long time and the aloe gel is not expensive it is very affordable and aloe has the added benefit of being good for your skin, although when you apply it to the scabies it burns a little. For me it was a tussle but the scabies are no match for the sulfur soap aloe gel combination. Good luck to you what ever you decide to do.

To Ukraine: u can order ivermectin horse paste over the internet or buy at a farm feed store. Very cheap. But I had to use it every 4th day for a month. You eat it...the amount for your weight (but I used double). But u have to keep yourself and bed, home, clothes, etc clean whole time! Also have to use something on your skin...I used manuka oil ordered from manukanatural.Consult and other days, star anise oil. These oils were the only thing that worked. It takes about a week.

#3399 Apr 2, 2013
Sorry...typed that wrong. The manuka oil from . Then on the other days I used star anise can get it from your health food store or order it online.
