Don't waste time or money on drs they are a joke buy oil of oregano put it on it stinks and makes the area warm but it works also take 3 drops or so in water and drink ....take baths in borax sea salt or Epsom salt and 20 or so alfalfa tablets crushed also take immune booster and vitamens use a scrubbing Make sure you treat hair and scalp bath for 30 to 60 min. Clean clean clean car shoes furniture wear clothes only once an wash good luck

That's not scabies. They're round. It could be collembola... but you need a microscope to really know. Get a microscope and ID them positively. When I finally saw collembola, I knew that I had a fungus issue (they eat fungus) and an environmental issue to deal with. It helped immensely to see exactly what bug was plaguing me.

How do you know you have collembola?
I don't itch at night anymore. I do have rashes though I suffer from eczema. Its been a while since my last iver an perm and everyone in a while I feel crawling, I have seen black specks when I look under a microscope it looks lik nothing or lint. My skin just feels uncomfortable. Good luck on your battle

Put down glue traps. The collembola leave/eat a fungus on your skin... that's the black specs that look like lint - fungal hyphae. I've caught them on my skin, but when you touch them their legs crumple, so they are hard to ID from skin samples. I have gotten a positive ID from skin samples, but the best looking ones I catch on glue traps.

I've had a huge improvement from Econazole cream, and fogging my environment. They aren't totally gone, but I've been fogging for less than a week.

How do they feel? Do you feel like they are biting you? I am extremely confused. I did perm treatment and I felt better, but due to crawly and pinprick every once in a while I feel like something is still in me. No one else feels bites. The econazole cream is an rx? Also how do they look on sticky tape?
Thanks for taking time out to answer my questions i'm extremely confused

I've got doubts about the sulphur soap. Sulphur bacteria under my skin cause any common soap to be instantly absorbed and a few hours later I stink of foul sulphur. My logic tells me that the sulphur bacteria have broken down the sodium laureth sulfate. There are also salt bacteria under the skin, which break down the sodium: these go with salt in a hot bath but you have to come out quickly because they are sensitive to the tiniest drop in temperature and get back into the skin. To avoid this, I use a bundle of scrap copper pipes in my bath, which kill 95% of all bacteria, but not the sulphur ones. The salt bacteria usually give the builders screaming armpits and feet, because most building materials are collected from sea shores, where there is a lot of salt. I had the most foul smelling armpits and feet and now the copper has worked, but my feet still smell of sulphur in closed shoes.

The sulphur bacteria come from discharge pipes and are anaerobic. I think the insect highly depends on them and i trully believe that if one finds a way to get rid of the sulphur bacteria, the game is over. The copper does not kill them because the copper ions only electrocute bacteria that are electrically sensitive, whereas the sulphur's tiny experts know that sulphur is the top class insulator of electricity, all plastics are based on sulphur and our own skin, this beautiful polymer, has its texture and strength mostly based on sulphur.

I noticed that there are times when the scabies wants acids, and then the bleach in the bath works best. It will also undo the excess sodium cloggind up the skin because of the insect at other times. But there are times when the insect wants sulphur, and then the fingernails grow weak and break, and it sends its threads right under the skin, where the body probably sends its sulphur most readily. i got fooled many times thinking that garlic or onion deters scabies. it only makes it happy, because the strength of the coating of its eggs and the strength of all keratin depends on sulphur.

Being anaerobic, sulphur bacteria need to be fooled to come out of the skin so any calcium or charcoal inside of which they can hide is good for insoles. But i'm absolutely desperate seeing the cost of these charcoal insoles, if I am to spend one every day! I haven't got 12 pounds a day!

"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."

For scabies soak in tea tree oil one tablesppon for 20 minutes 4 nights in a row. Don't get it in your mouth it is toxic if ingested. If you still have symptoms in a week repeat the treatment. All family members must do it even those without symptoms. Wash clothing in borax and oxi clean. For rat or bird mites use neem and for demodex take vitamin D to improve your immune system. Improving your immune system is only thing that works for demodex.

Pinpricks, crawling, itching (although not as relentless as scabies). You could just have a fungal infection from the scabies - that can cause pinpricks and crawling. Get some Ketoconazole shampoo or Econazole cream - both RX. Or try yogurt and acidophilus all over your body.

The springtails don't bite, but they enter your pores to eat the fungus therein. feels like a sliver going in... crawling on top.

Wow HG, I felt that sliver feeling a few months ago. It woke me out of my sleep. It only happened once. I just remember how painful that was I put perm on it and it went away! Does the yogurt and acidophilus work as good as the rx? I looked up acidophilus it looks like it's a probiotic is that correct? Have you found a way to get collembola out of your skin? Thanks for posting! This helps a lot.

Thank you, Fred, for sharing all your research with us on the Morgellon, Lyme thread (that also rids of mites). It is kind of you to share all your hard work to try to help us. I'm so happy for you that you are totally cured now. You must be thrilled. God will bless you for caring enough to share. Well, I guess he already has...you're cured! Praise God!!

<quoted text>It is not necessary to brush hard and you can use a wash cloth to work the soap in. If you do use a bath brush use one with soft bristles. Use the aloe once a day in the morning or right after your bath. You said that you had itching in the evening that does make me wonder because the worst itching was always in the wee hours of the morning for me around 2 or 3 in the morning. Try zinc gluconate around 90mg a day zinc is listed as anti parasitic and I do believe it really helped. do not take more than 100mg of zinc a day.I feel like the wormwood I am taking did a good job. If you want wormwood or the zinc you can get them at piping rock vitamins online. You will not have to brush hard to work the soap in, use a wash cloth if that is better, be gentle.
Hi Umathr,
I used your aloe idea to make a very effective skin and hair mix. In a mug, I dissolve two Alka Seltzer tablets in a small amount of water and add about a tablespoon or more of borax. I mix them together to dissolve the borax. Then I fill up the mug with pure aloe gel meant for internal use - it's quite cheap at a health food store. Mix that all together, and use that head to toe. It works like a hair gel in the scalp but kills the mites, and is very effective.
I know how

Why does Permetrin need a perscription? Poor people wont go and keep spreading. Should the public health dept get involved ? I think its an epidemic in south florida and people are ashamed or or in denial.Speak ut now . Public seating seem to be a source.

It is because permethrin is neurotoxic and has carcinognic implications. Some people on this forum have used 45% permethrin on their skin for months and will suffer health problems from that for the rest of their lives.

If you have only a few bumps then Permithrin will do however if you have it in multiple places on your body here is what I did and I am starting to win this 4 month war...
1) Do 2 cycles of Permithrin 4 days a part. Careful not to burn your skin or get too sick.
2) Get Vermox or Ivermectin. Sorry you'll have to live with ingesting poison. Having millions of critters driving you suicidal is far worse.
3) Use hot water and longer cycle in the wash and dryer adding vinegar and Borax to the wash.
4) Clean sheets and comforter daily for first 2 weeks until you are absolutely sure the scabies are gone
5) Freeze your pillow through the day and your footwear at night to kill them rascals
6) Wash floors, stay away from couched that have material or cannot be wiped off daily. Clean your car seat daily.
7) Bath adding tea tree oil, neem, Borax, hydrogen peroxide and add some aloe.
8) Preventative maintenance: Combine 3 tablespoons moisturizing lotion (with vitamin E) with 1 tbs grape seed oil (other oils will work however the consistency of the lotion is better with grape seed oil) liberally add turmeric powder, 3 drops neem oil and 3 drops tea tree oil and use for 2 weeks.
9) Stating the obvious... Stay away from people and ensure your room-mates or family are also treated.

I am only returning to this forum to point out that I have been completely cured going on six weeks.
You won't believe what cured me, most of the forum has been using "Freedom 45 Spot-on for extra large dogs" as a topical method to manage symptoms.
Well the online vet supply company screwed up my order and mailed me the same product BUT it's the Freedom 45 Spot-on for horses (equine). It comes in a larger box with six slightly larger tubettes. The ingredients say 45% Permethrin but there must be something else added that is not on the label or perhaps a different kind of Permethrin because the one for extra large dogs did not cure but the one for horses wiped them out in three weeks with no side effects. I am completely cured. I bought mine at EntirelyPets.com but you can order it from Jeffers Horse Supplies too. I wish I could share my cure with those of you who have been on this forum for years. You no longer have to suffer. Get this and cover your body with it and in three weeks you are cured like me. And my case was severe!
Hi, I actually have the freedom - spot on 45 pipettes, I dilute them by putting half into my carpet cleaning solution, I can say my carpet feels squeaky clean. I have thought about trying a high dose of 45% but I need more info in order to try it, what makes me leary is the fact that i cannot put it on my child, I want us to both be treated at the same time. On top of clove oil etc. I have started taking clove capsules, its been 3 months already that I have have had it, my son for two. I suppose if I decide to try the freedom 45, I can put the eliminite 5% that I have not applied on my son yet (on him), I have a (3) 120mg tube scrip that I haven't filled yet, because its so pricey. I put the Iver paste in his cereal two weeks ago, and last week we did Iver paste topical with coconut as a carrier oil, we applied all over after shower, he felt better, I instantly got more crawling, but the next day I felt ok...of course the ok feeling was very temporary, but I am willing to give it another shot and use every two-three days this time, I hear that is when eggs hatch, not every week like the dumb derms say.

Please inbox me so I can get some more info on exactly how you applied your last round of Freedom-45?, how long did you have it on? did you apply it straight or use a carrier oil?, how many times have you done the freedom-45 before you got the cured results?

Thank you and It sgood to know you are cured.
