The derm thought it was der matitis. Haven't used permeth for that reason and bc would be afraid to w so many open sores. A decade ago had this (or some mite) and tried permeth many times w no effect. What cured that time was 10% sulfer and iver for a couple months. That didn't work this time.
is there something in your house or car that might be reinfecting/infesting you?

I think it's time to use the permethrin.:) If you are scratching alot, take some benydryl. Am not sure the open sores will get inflamed by the permethrin --maybe a tiny dab of petroleum jelly could help there, just a thought. Let's see what works best. God bless you too.

If the dr won't precsribe I don't know. I have 1% permeth nix wash from over the counter but havent used it yet...figured that would be too weak and just might strengthen them. Had such a terrible reaction to the permeth a decade ago...madr them worse and seemed to effect my nervous system, gave my skin red and brown "beauty" marks that never went away. Also, i really am covered suddenly with open sores. Suddenly, today, feelin better n hopin the clove or manuka maybe did help that I kept on past few days...if the sores heal a bit I may try it. Used so much iver. Kind of concerned ab my liver/ kidneys. Also, 5 months of constant clove/ sulfur can't be good for them either. Is there a store where I could get 5% permeth wo a script?

healed i agree with not so newtothis. Your prob should try perm. The longer you have it the worse off you will be. I know how much you miss you baby I miss my little one so much. I see her and all I want to do is hug and kiss her, but I don't.

My cleaning regimen is insanely meticulous (i posted it above about a month ago). So i think its just me. No one else in the house has it. Same as last time.

If your in the US you need a script. If you know someone who lives in Central or South America they could mail it to you. It's only $10.00. I used the perm on my sores and it healed up nicely. I would just recommend, taking Epsom salt baths after you use the perm it will help heal your skin. You should try it even before you do the perm.

I have read of people using perm from the feed store and diluting it. Though I believe it has petroleum in it, just check the ingredients. I have been going through this for a year. Though I was misdiagnosed for many months. I too have been so confused on if this is scabies or something else. I now think it might be canine mites. I am treating my dog, though the vet said she was fine. Though my dog was scratching all the time. She never lost hair so they said it wasn't mites. I read an article that canine mites are harder to kill. So I'm treating my dog with arm and hammer and peroxide and iver every 7 days. She's scratching a lot less. So exhausting trying to figure things out. Off to wash all the floors

I've learned u can't trust the "experts" anymore. I think its a good idea to treat ur dog...if he's itching less the vet was probably wrong. I'm wondering if I have the canine ones, too. But I'm not itching to.ight and I am very happy bc at night I usually am. I'm going to remember to give God the credit this time bc I should. I prayed a lot this morning and I am learning I need to put more faith and trust in Him than in the natural if I want Him to answer! Yes, may we all be healed in Jesus' Name!!

I have some 50% permethrin lotion, which is the standard, over-the-counter scabies treatment in australia. It really works. You can email me at [email protected], if you are interested. I suffered for years, tried every treatment on the blog, before finding this.

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in ma. Psalm 118:8. This happens to be the center verse of the Bible.

Do you have a dog? I know what you mean. I happy that I don't itch at night anymore and can fall asleep pretty fast and stay sleeping. You have to have faith that God will heal you. He's the best doctor around! Have a good night

I have been using sulfur soap and aloe vera gel. I am no longer bothered by the scabies. I still have them I have not completely gotten rid of them, but they do not bother me. I just have to keep up the treatment for a while longer and hopefully it will be the last of them. At one point I ordered perm from mexico it was a little cheaper but it had formaldehyde in it, so be careful about where you get perm. Perm did not work for me. I think perm is kind of ridiculous because to think that you could cover yourself from head to toe with that crap and kill everyone of the scabies does not make sense, does not, work like that. Perm might work for crabs or lice but not scabies, not for most people. In short it is a waste of time and money. Sulfur soap is easy to use as is the aloe and aloe is very healing to the skin. If you have active scabies, I mean you can see the tracks the skin is red and raw, and you apply aloe gel to that area you will feel some discomfort but not much and not for long, but aloe does kill scabies. I do not think you can get rid of them completely just with aloe gel but it is a powerful weapon againest them. When I say aloe gel I mean pure organic aloe gel as pure as you can get it, not some goopy aloe that is sticky and gross, with lots of additives. Scabies hate aloe. Good luck whatever you decide to do

Umathr do u have any bites, marks or sores anywhere. I'm going to get some pure aloe vera gel. I look like a polka dot person. I have also lost so much weight. Had this over 5 months now. It was always just on my back and occasionally front, rarely tops of thighs. Now everywhere!! Since switching from sulfur to manuka. I think the star anise oil may have been what killed them off last month then the manuka oil healed the damaged skin. Meanwhile, they were laying eggs or something. Can't be my environment...I disinfect everything constantly.

I didn't dilute it and put it on once a day all over and every time I felt an itch on that spot throughout the day. I did it for a couple of weeks. By then, I've had the bugs for years, so it took a while. I have not heard of any side effects. We bought it in Australia at a Pharmacy, over the counter. It was the only scabies treatment they had there.

Wow! You kept 50% permethrin on you for 2 weeks? Did it bother your nerves? Are u sure it isn't 5%?(That's the standard here in ythe US, but w a script). Thanks...I'm considering it.
I just bought aloe vera gel, 5.70% permethrin (Sentry's 35 day dip for dogs....I don't know about actually using it!), star anise oil and sulfodene skin meds for dog hot spots (2-mercaptobenzothiazole). Also, a lot of sea salt and clove oil. Spent more than half of my grocery money.
