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.

You have absolutely no idea that you are "cured" because you haven't had any testing. These pathogens can lay low because they have several ways to hide from the immune system and when you or stressed or the levels build up sufficiently in your system. The wormwood your ising actually only targets a small percentage of internal pathogens. Next time you run out of wormwood try switching to Usnea tincture, if it makes you feel bad it is because of the die off reaction of what it is killing inside you. So what you are saying is that you are not treating in any way and haven't been for at least a month because that is the requirement for saying you are "cured". I'm glad you're feeling better though, for now.

Wouldnt you say that if you wake up in the middle of the night 2 or 3 AM and you are scratching like hell and it happens over and over and you have all the tell tale signs of scabies like the semi circle pattern they leave on your skin than you probably, safe to say you have scabies. How many other bugs do that, not many, if any. I will look more deeply into what you are saying.

I just ran out of sulfur soap. Will get more soon. Been using whole time. I don't let it dry on me bc my skin is already very dried out and I think that would make it dryer. I bought the organic aloe vera and use it. But how do u use it w the sulfur soap dried on ur skin? Just put it over the dried out soap once that soap dries? I took zinc a lot for a while a couple months ago and it made my skin terribly dry. When my skin gets dry I notice it makes the problem worse. So far the star anise oil seems to be making some progress. I am taking lecithin for my liver now as well as milk thistle. I know from the symptoms that this is a resistant mite..most likey scabies due to the areas it goes to (not the same areas that bird mites go to). But I plan to read the rest of the articles Fred because tho I am quite sure I know what this is, because no one else in my household has a problem with it, there must be something going on with me that is allowing it to thrive. I have some theories now after all I've seen: one is that what the ivermectin horsepaste box says is probably more accurate, that is, that the ivermectin for "summer sores" on horses kills only the third stage larva. I think that AT THE MOST that's what it does. At least for mine. Because it sure doesn't kill the adults. I've been taking it on and off and in different dosages now for many months and it appears to do nothing. Tho, since I've been taking it for 19 days straight now I am doing a bit better than the beginning of the 19 days, but I think that may even have more to do with the anise oil.When I ran out of thatl ast week it all came roaring back. The other theory that I am almost positive of is that this disease used to be easily treated, decades ago, with 3 nights of sulfur, or perhaps beach baths. Then, to make it go away in 1 night, they invented Lindane. Then the mites became resistent to that so they invented permethrin. Then, about a decade ago or a bit less, they (or many strains of them) became resistant to the permethrin. So now we are in a world of trouble. But it still isn't hopeless. I have read many scientific studies that say hey are resistant to permethrin and ivermectrin often now.
I know some were cured with clove but it didn't work for me.That woman also said she fasted and prayed so that was more likely her cure (Praise God...He STILL HEALS)!! Anyway, may we all be healed, physically and spiritually, very soon in The Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God who loved us and gave Himself for us, and by whose wounds we are healed.

Instead of asking me that why don't you go look for symptoms on google. But as I have said before the other infections give the same symptoms.

I had 3 skin scrapings done after 2 months of being infected with what I thought at the time was scabies. They all came back negative for mites although there were visible black specks and I had the long red scratch marks and yes i was waking up at 2 in the morning , believe me I went through that kind of hell for a long time. The Derm at the time said I had "formication" and prescribed me ORAP which is a psychiatric med, I never bothered to take it after I knew that. I was in your shoes too Umathr, do you think you need psychiatric meds?

What I can trace my infection to is getting bit by this unidentified bug while I was riding my bike about 7 years ago then I had a demanding girlfriend and a high stress job and my immune system couldn't cope anymore and I all of a sudden got sick.

Insect vectored diseases are complicated and you need to know quite a bit to treat them properly so it's a good idea to read the links I post even if it doesn't make sense to you at the time.

There was a poster on her for two years, Persistance,who did all the crazy useless toxic treatments and then posted this thread.

http://www.topix.com/forum/health/scabies/T6U...

"Crawlygirl" had the same experience.

In my case I developed morgellons disease and the scientific evidence has shown morgellons is actually a different presentation of lyme disease.

http://f1000research.com/articles/2-118/v1

The major coinfections with borriela are Babesia, Bartonella and Erlichiosis although you can also have an array of others including mycoplasma.

I have created a treatment database on the Borax thread and will continue to post the best treatments there. In order for people to get past these infections they have to do some research and reading.

The notion that you can find the bomb treatment and then suddenly get better has been the one prevailing on this forum and it is pure nonsense that is why so many treatments fail here, have you noticed that?

The person who recently posted she got cured from 3 weeks of horse sized freedom 45 had used freedom 45 daily for 6 months with no results. The horse version is just a bigger size than the dog version and has the exact same ingredients, exact same. 45% permethrin is highly neurotoxic, imagine how screwed up your thinking would be after rubbing that stuff on your skin for 6 months.

One point i will make in these posts is that these infections are transmittable by body fluids they are all STD's so consider your contacts. Symptoms of these infections can show up pretty soon after infection or years down the road, they are considered "stealth" pathogens and have many ways of deactivating the immune system.

If someone goes to an infectious disease specialist they should deffinately be tested for bartonella, that is the worst of the bunch and you can even get it from cats and dogs. It should be treated first.

Hi ``will be healed". Like your positive name. Besides olive leaf supplements (3 capsules 3 times a day, Fred`s ideas changed a bit), I mix 2 Alka Seltzers in a tiny bit of water in a mug. After it has bubbled up, I add about a tablespoon of borax and throw the mix in the microwave for a 1 minute or less to dissolve the borax. Then I add in enough 100% pure aloe gel and stir it all. This really helps. I use it head to toe, including my face and I rub it into the hair. It thickens up my hair besides messing with the mites. This mix really helps as shown by how they manage to get worse when I run out. Aloe gel, meant for internal use, is available at health food stores for cheap.
I`d suggest you not continue with the ivermectin since it may build up in your body. Some have had epileptic type results. Some have had some success with Fred`s suggestion of artemisinin (sp) and cryptolepsis. I`m going to try the first one.

Scabies hide under skin cells and also under the surface tension of the skin, so they are hard to get at. That is why you need a bath brush to work the soap into your skin let dry. I guess you could wash and rinse but that would not be as good, my opinion. In between applications of the soap use the aloe. Aloe is very healing to the skin, thats the reputation anyway, and it seems that way to me. There are different kinds of zinc some more expensive some less, hopefully you can find one that is right for you. I say to take zinc because it will make your skin taste really bad, have you ever tasted zinc, also it does something to your blood that is powerful I feel scabies must hate it. It is used to fight colds and flu, but do not take to much, do not over do it, to much zinc can be harmful. There are antiparasitic herbs wormwood is one. I take the wormwood from kroger herbs I feel it works well. But there are others. I hope you can find a way to take the zinc and use the sulfur soap also use the aloe. Also think about changing the ph of your blood most americans are to acid. You can take small amounts of baking soda. You might try small amounts of apple cider vinegar. The scabies will not like that. Good luck and God bless.

All the Borax is doing is raising your blood pressure and leaving deposits in your kidneys. Canuckette unless you have read all my posts on the borax thread in the last 6 weeks or so and understand them then please don't attach my name to something you thing I said. Artemisinin and cryptolepis are specifically for a Babesia infection however Quina and cinnamon bark tincture are even more effective for babesia. For Bartonella you need to use Houttuynia and Usnea tincture.

If you just have the mentality that you are going to throw something down the pie hole and see what happens then your likely going to make yourself sicker. You need to understand how to manage detox pathways and how to look at you own skin symptoms and other symptoms to know how to proceed. I have posted all the pertinent info on the Borax thread.

Bartonella Is an infection of mainly the red blood cells. When you have an intracellular infection like bartonella it is hard to get rid of , Allopathy has a very poor record treating bartonella with antibiotics. You can get bartonella from your dog or cat and arthropods are a big source.

Mites are arthropods;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mite

"Mites, along with ticks, are small arthropods belonging to the subclass Acari"

Here is an informative link set on Bartonella;

http://web.ncsu.edu/abstract/science/bartonel...

http://web.ncsu.edu/abstract/science/bartonel...

http://web.ncsu.edu/abstract/science/bartonel...

"The way Bartonella works in your body goes something like this: Once a human is infected by an animal bite or scratch, or by an arthropod – like a flea or tick – bite, Bartonella takes up residence in red blood cells and endothelial cells – the cells that line blood vessels. This serves as a great hiding place for the bacteria, which can then cause cycles of repeated intravascular infection (known as cyclic bacteremia), ultimately affecting multiple organs and organ systems. The ability of these bacteria to hide within cells makes diagnosis and treatment tricky"

It's realistically about a 50/50 chance that the mites that gave you scabies , if you ever had that at all, also gave you bartonella bacteria, it's just that the research for this is horribly inadequate.

http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/18/1/11-0186...

"The fact that the suspected vector was a hematophagous mite (Dermanyssus sp.), a parasite of synanthropic pigeons and a suspected vector of other bacterial pathogens (8,9), and that the 16S rRNA Bartonella spp. gene was detected in mites"

So This is just one part of the insect vectored infection puzzle, bartonella. It's pretty hard to test for and the symptoms are overlapping but the reality is now that if you really had scabies then you've got a 50/50 chance of having contracted bartonella too.

So here is the cure for a bartonella infection. Houttuynia and Usnea tincture.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Houttuynia_corda...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usnea

Houttunia is available from maxnature. The Usnea tincture is widely available , the herb-pharm brand is excellent.

You need to treat for six months so it gets in all the tissues of your body.

You can look at some of the symptoms of babesia and bartonella here. You don't have to have all the symptoms , everyone displays differently.

Its aa combination of herbs not just wormwood. I really think I have scabies and just scabies or rather I had scabies. I went to one of your recommended sites and I do not have those symptoms, it was brain health I think. The wormwood combination is black walnut leaf, wormwood, quassia. and cloves, also male fern root. I do not know what its doing but I do get a good feeling about taking it in regard to scabies. Also I think the zinc really helps, take zinc gluconate. You can go to webMd to read up about zinc. You have given a lot of information Fred it will take time to read.

Fundamentally you don't seem to understand that weather you had scabies or not you may have contracted an insect vectored infection from any variety of insects. Maybe you had a cat or dog with fleas, maybe you got bitten by a bedbug , it could have been years ago because these infections lay low until you are vulnerable or may be it was passed to you from the scabies infection that you started with.

Sulfur does kill scabies you are right and as much of it as you have used , I should have bought stock in sulfur, You would have killed them in a month. How long have you been posting her now, over a year it seems to me. So what is left once the mites are gone.

It is better than even odds that you have an insect vectored infection.
You need to have skin scrapings and you need to get your own microscope or at least an eyeloupe with 60x mag. And then you need to look at any samples very carefully.

You drenched yourself in sulfur for a year or so, there is not a mite in the universe that can survive that, everything you have heard on this site about the supermite is just baseless conjecture.

Thanks for the tip on the zinc but getting the big picture on how to drive your health approach is much more complicated than using zinc.

Read my posts on the Borax thread going back at least a month, hopefully you will get a broader based understanding.

I've been taking it on and off and in different dosages now for many months and it appears to do nothing. Tho, since I've been taking it for 19 days straight now I am doing a bit better than the beginning of the 19 days, but I think that may even have more to do with the anise oil.When I ran out of thatl ast week it all came roaring back. The other theory that I am almost positive of is that this disease used to be easily treated, decades ago, with 3 nights of sulfur, or perhaps beach baths. Then, to make it go away in 1 night, they invented Lindane. Then the mites became resistent to that so they invented permethrin. Then, about a decade ago or a bit less, they (or many strains of them) became resistant to the permethrin. So now we are in a world of trouble. But it still isn't hopeless. I have read many scientific studies that say hey are resistant to permethrin and ivermectrin often now.
I know some were cured with clove but it didn't work for me.That woman also said she fasted and prayed so that was more likely her cure (Praise God...He STILL HEALS)!! Anyway, may we all be healed, physically and spiritually, very soon in The Name of Jesus Christ, the Son of God who loved us and gave Himself for us, and by whose wounds we are healed.
You said you were the only one in your house infected. That is not something you will see with a mite infection.

"It is highly contagious – that means it is spread from person to person by direct physical contact.

It tends to spread around communities like schools and residential homes.

In a family, if one person has it, the whole family should be treated with appropriate medicine to cure it."

O.K. what's wrong with this picture?
