I just found out my dogs have Scabies (mange) My understanding is that there are two different types of scabies. One that dogs do not get, but the one dogs will get, humans can get it from the dog, it is said they only last about 3 weeks on human skin, but you can get another infestation if you do not get rid of the source. I have NO IDEA how my dogs got them, We have never had anything close to this sort of thing. My dogs are 5 years and 8 years. This is the first time. I just moved back to Georgia from the west coast. The only solution I can come up with, is that they may have come in contact with them at the vote I use, it is not well disinfectied bulding. And although I did not know it, this is the second time in the past year we have got them. I thought at first it was redbugs, because we had them in Texas, and it resembles the chigger bite, but chigger bites do not spread and these do. Nor are Chigger bite contagious. I am haveing to wash EVERYTHING in my house, treat the dogs with a treatment that is used normally for fleas and ticks, and I hope it works, the vet said it would.. But we have to get rid of the infestation, and that is more bothersome. I am going to try the lavender and sulfur soap for myself, and see if that helps. I hope so, because I don't think I can deal with this for long.
I do not undertand it, no where that I have ever lived before, have I had an experience like this. I always thought dirty people had this problem, but we have lived an upper middle class life style, well, up until now anyway, so I am shocked. This is not something I thought would ever happen to myself of my pets.

I meant to say, the dogs may have come in contact with a source at the vet.

Seems like I am really cured, does that sound like famous last words, I hope not. I have been sleeping fine and have no sign of scabies. I was cured using sulfur soap, and aloe vera gel the organic natural kind. I would work the soap into the effected areas with a natural bristle bath brush. Letting it dry on the skin, from time to time I would use the aloe like every day or so. I am also taking wormwood and zinc. I take 60mg of zinc a day. Wormwood is antiparasitic.

You can not get scabies from dogs. I have no idea where I got my scabies from. I am very glad to have got rid of them.

If you have a mite infestation on your scalp, eye-lashes, nose, ears, feet, and you cannot kill them with ivermectin or permethrin you have Demodicosis. Most of you have Demodicosis, a microscopic mite that you cannot see without a microscope. It burrows under the skin and lives around hair follicles. The only cure is applying 4% Pilocarpine Gel that sufficates the mites immediately. 4% Pilocarpine Gel is mostly used for optical purposes. It costs roughly $100 for a small 4 gram bottle. If you have been infested for more than a year it will take at least four (4) months to be completely cured by this method.

By the way, this is the only method known to man that cures Demodicosis. Don't expect your dermatologist to know that a verified cure for Demodicosis even exists without prodding them to do a Google search!

That looks like scabies if its just there I recommend you put clear nail polish that kills them and do it before they spread

Beware of "Fred", he is intentionally confusing everyone on the Topix Scabies threads with misinformation and manipulation. He is obviously not here to help anyone! He is not an expert! His grand posts appear to be self serving a warped ego. There is something terribly wrong with his intentions. His advice is flawed! You are wasting your time following his advice!

If you or anyone you know has a scabies infestation, please have them read this. The scabies are very small mites you can get them from just about any where, but are mostly transmitted by skin to skin contact even a handshake could act as a vehicle for them to move from one person to another. Sleeping in the same bed or sitting on a piece of furniture any where could pass them on. The scabies female once on you burrows into the upper layers of skin where she feeds and lays her eggs, The eggs hatch in about ten days, they quickly reach maturity mate with the males and the whole cycle begins again. You don't have to be in a poorly kept environment or practice poor hygiene to become a scabies host. The medically approved treatments leave windows of opportunity for the scabies and their eggs to survive The treatment which can only be used once a week start to lose there effectiveness in 18 hours, the scabie eggs take 10 days to hatch and are not killed by the treatments.
Here is my story
After 3 treatments with the cream and pills I was still fighting with the little biting buggers I did every thing suggested plus more and still they survived. Finally it dawned on me that my lady friend and her family with whom I spend at least half of my time had not become infected "thank goodness". So why me and not them? The answer was right under my nose they are all smokers that's all smokers and all have nicotine in their systems.Nicotine is a deadly insecticide.I don't want to smoke but I want to rid of these little biting buggers so I put on the patch, the 21mg nicotine patch, I have been wearing it day and night for 5 days now and my symptoms now may only be my bodies immune system acting on the dead bodies and feces. I am not a scientist but do believe it could take 2 weeks on the patch to deal with any unhatched eggs. But so far during this nightmare this is the only time that I have felt very little biting and almost no crawling two sure signs that they are alive and chewing. I would guess that the hatching juveniles will have to feed before the nicotine takes effects and kills them.
The prescription meds we take have a half life of no more then 18 hours that means that any eggs that hatch out or any mites that may be on rugs, clothing, furniture, bedding ect could still re-infect you since the mite can live without a host for 72 hours and the eggs can take 10 days or more to hatch out. The patch should continue to put a deadly poison in your blood and any where that the blood circulates to for as long as you use it.
So far the patch has greatly reduced almost to the point of where I feel little to no biting or crawling. The medical field is limited to what it can do treat these little biting buggers. Our minds are only limited by our failure to use them.
Researching has shown me that there are patents in effect now that cover using nicotine as a treatment on humans to deal with scabies, other mites, bedbugs and lice. Why they are not being used to treat scabies,other mites, bedbugs,lice and other parasites may have to do with the fact that a 14 day supply of 21mg nicotine patches can be purchased for as little as $35.00. One treatment of the cream costs me over $113.00 x 3=$339 dollars. I can't remember the cost of the prescription pills but it is around $80.00 x 3 =$240.00 dollars. that adds up to a whopping $579.00.
The nicotine patch is available across the counter with no prescription, I am not the doctor so just be sure that you are medically able to wear the patch safely

Order sulfur soap from sulfursoap.com get 8 bars for 25 dollars no shipping fee the soap will get to you quick. Use a natural bristle bath brush to work the soap into your skin let dry. Do this 3 times a day if you can do it as much as you have time for. Also get aloe vera gel the organic kind in between using the soap put the aloe gel on your self be careful at first because aloe can burn a little so get used to the reaction before going all out.I think zinc the vitamin and wormwood the herb work well againest scabies. Sulfur soap works great but work it into the skin using the bath brush, the scabies will hate you for it. Good luck

You should get some aloe gel organic and use it all over it drys in a few moments and will help. Try sulfur soap. Try zinc, and wormwood.

I don't have the all over itchy-crawlies I think bc I keep a topical on at all times (manuka or clove oil or sulfur). But I am covered from neck to ankles with bites that are now small sores from scratching. The bites are in rows or shapes-- some "c"s, some circles, some horseshoes, etc. I had no bites for about 2 wks (ab a month ago) and thought the manuka cured me. Maybe the star anise was what helped. I don't know. I've had this 5 months now and can't hug my little child. But I'm workin on building my faith in God.
have you looked into the horse paste at tractor supply?
also i never had noticeable bites so we might be dealing with the same mites also your skin could possibly be reacting to all of the treatments you are using..message me healed and I would love to give you support

Name the people on this forum that have been cured for at very least two months using any kind of Ivermectin. Where are they? There is a lot of talk about horse paste and other forms of Iver but where are the people it actually cured?

Mites carry a variety of infections that they can pass to you that have similar symptoms. So if you had mites and got rid of them then you are left with an infection with similar symptoms. Sometimes you'll get one of these infections from being bitten by a different insect and then think you have scabies. The biggest mistake people on this forum are making is to conclude that it is definitely scabies. The majority of people do this without an adequate diagnosis. if your MD didn't do several different tests then his opinion is meaningless. Regular doctors aren't very good at diagnosing this. Dermatologists are worthless, you need to go to an MD who is an infectious disease specialist. Some of these infections are bartonella, babesia or borriela.

Using Aloe and wormwood will mean only that you will be on this forum for a very very long time.

So far I have only seen any progress at all using the star anise oil. Guess I have a different kind. Thank you to all the posters...I have been trying to respond for a couple of weeks but for some reason they didn't go through. I did try the 5% permethrin cream last week and it made it worse. It was like giving them caffeine. I have continued on with the iver...day 19. A bit concerened because I have lost 20 lbs these last nearly 6 months. Is this normal?

That is because it is not a skin infection , it runs through the whole body.How hard is it for you to go get a skin scraping? Even if you have to go to a worthless MD or dermatologist, just don't let them prescribe psychiatric meds when you come up negative, then insist on a referral to an infectious disease doc.

I know it is easier for the people here to continually rub who knows what on their skin and constantly be in agony with no end in sight and watch the calendar flip pages while you still have "scabies" . The truth is 90% of you have something else and some clever little treatment like aloe with wormwood or anise oil is really just only making you a little bit comfortable while you won't even open your minds to what is really happening because it's too much to think about.

All these people who reinforce each other with this constant flow of misinformation. Really. Anyone can come up with some half baked theories on how to treat the "supermite", that doesn't exist, by googling for 15 minutes. Why don't you open your eyes , put out a little effort and put the puzzle together. You owe yourself that much don't you?

Umathr you really need to quit giving advice because you don't even understand what you are sick with.

I used aloe and sulfur soap, I also take zinc 60mg a day and wormwood. I have got rid of my scabies. I am not saying they are gone for good, that I do not know, but for right now they are gone. You do not have to suffer use sulfur soap. At the very least use sulfur soap. Fred may be right, but his is not the only cure. I know because I am cured. But the main thing is, that you do not have to suffer.
