Get a vinyl mattress cover from Walmart. If it's regular scabies, leave it on for a month to be sure. If there's any possibility it might be anything else, leave it on for a year. Do the same for the pillows.

The mattress covers don't work for scabies because the nymphs are smaller than the holes in the highest rated cover you can get. The mites get all over the cover and get into the mattress anyway. If your dealing with skin mites then the best bet is to get an inflatable air mattress and sleep on that, you can wipe it down with windex in the morning. If you actually have mites and after the mites are gone you can treat the infections they pass on to you. A lot of people come to this forum having never had mites because the symptoms of a variety of infections you can get are very similar.

Even dust mites carry a lot of different infections now including Bartonella.

Just take some borax, about 3 tablespoons, and dissolve in a quart of water heated up on the stove a bit. After its cool put it in a spray bottle and spray down the mattress good on all the surfaces. Leave it for a week and it will be disinfected.

To stop the itch and kill the scabies use sulfur soap. Use something like a cloth or a brush to work the soap into the effected areas. The scabies hide under skin cells and under the surface tension of the skin. Also consider using wormwood it is an excellent anti-parasitic, also begin using zinc it also is a excellent anti-parasitic. Look zinc up on webMD read up on it a little. Also use aloe vera gel, use the organic pure kind, scabies hate aloe. Use a baking soda and water mixture to spray on bedding or any other areas you think may need it. All of the things I have mentioned are inexpensive and safe. If you insist on using harsh chemicals please at least use the zinc and the wormwood. Good luck to all of you.

I have been suffering from an intense itching & crawling sensation accompanied by small brown & black specs for over a year now. The itching is everywhere from my head to my toes & its driving me crazy. Five different doctors have tried to diagnose the problem & have said its anything from scabies to magellian but the truth is none of them really know what I am dealing with or how to treat it. They have perscribed the permathrin cream & several other perscription strength creams & medications with little to no result whatsoever. If anyone has went through this terrible ordeal you already know what a horrible physical & mental situation I am dealing with & I would greatly appreciate any help that can be provided.
Try putting glue traps down and get a microscope... that's how I discovered I was infested with springtails (collembola).

You might want to get a better microscope because collembolas don't infest people. The morgellons debris can look just like a collembola mite though.

See if you can go and find an actual entomology resource link that says collembolas infest people. Not some blog by someone making stuff up but an actual entomology website from an entomology lab or a university lab.

You won't find one because they don't. Like I said, you need a better microscope.

Apply thin layer of Vick's Vapo-rub from head to toe. Wait 15 minutes.(the camphor in it wakes up the mites that set deeper, making them come to the surface). Run hot bath water with 2 cups Borax, 2 cups epsom salts and 2 cups hydrogen peroxide. Soak for 20 minutes, making sure you're body is completely submerged. Repeat the bath 2 more days in a row.(Although I've seen results in just 1) Wash all clothing and bed linnens in hot water and borax. This is an old Appalachian remedy. Works great!

@umathr, It might seem nutty to you, but it works! The hydrogen peroxide (H202) reacts with the sulfides in epsom salt (MGSO4),and boric acid (HB303),activating them. The sulfur (in the form of magnesium sulfate, and calcium sulfate) have been used for years to treat scabies. Boric acid, also called hydrogen borate, boracic acid, orthoboric acid and acidum boricum, is a weak acid of boron often used as an antiseptic or insecticide. Together it is a powerful and effective treatment for scabies.

OMG, Finally a cure from household items! I tried it yesterday, I have suffered from this horrible condition for almost 3 years now, off and on. Tried almost every treatment online, with no results. The doctor prescribes Lindane solution (which contains neurotoxins and has been known to cause brain cancer). I work in a clinical setting and am exposed to this frequently. I actually felt relief directly after treatment, and even worked in the sun without that "jumping" feeling.
I understand the doctors can't say anything is a "cure" unless it's been FDA approved, but that's just a bigtime money racket.
Thank you, you are a God-send!

I am an old timer
Use sulfur soap, work it into the skin with a bath brush or wash cloth
let it dry on your skin
do this 2 times a day
start taking worwood its an herb
also take zinc gluconate take 60 to 90 mg a day
wormwood zinc and sulfur soap are cheap
also start using aloe vera gel the organic kind
this worked for me
it does not take long
good luck with your beach baths

I am in Colorado Springs as well and would like to talk with you and see if we are suffering from the same thing. I have been at it for months and do understand some things about it now but have not been completely cured by anything yet. Please let me know if there is a way to contact you outside of this forum. To everyone else: keep fighting and stay positive. This thing robs you of your quality of life. You have to use everything in you to maintain some normalcy for your family while fighting it every day (moment by monment). God bless.

WARNING! not all can do this but if u have skin tough as nails and work out doors this is for you. I am a roofer and its common for me to get a rash but scabies I get it a lot. After creams and home natural remedies didn't work. I wanted to go sit I'm a hot tub but was advised not to. I turned the shower to the hottest it could get and got the shower head and put it to the mOst infected areas of my body arms, hands, groin, and chest. Yes it hurt like heck but I sucked it up and fought the pain. Did every infected area for about ten minutes or more was not keeping time. I stopped half way let my body cool down and I knew that this killed off what I had. But to be safe I did it again for another 20-30 min. After I was done I pattee my self dry and put rubbing alcohol in the infected areas. Felt small stings. After I felt good as new. How I know this works? Because I could not spend more than 5 seconds in tge back of my ears or face, and finding myself itching there and no longer my arms, groins, chest, and hands. Again DO NOT DO THIS TREATMENT ON KIDS! I only recommend this treatment for tough skin adults. If this does not work in you let me know. To recap: shower only in hottest temp you can get or withstand (DO NOT BOIL). Each infected area for at least ten minutes. Take a cool down break. Pat down dry and put rubbing alcohol. Please be careful!

Today I feel so overwhelmed! Cleaning, washing, bagging, and always doing a mountain of laundry.
We have just started this battle-I will be praying for you all. We are on our first round of Permethrin cream, my hubby is also doing bleach baths and also the borax/epsom salts/hydrogen peroxide baths. So much fun-NOT!!!

Our son had this in April-we think he got this from his dorm-as others there had it also. Well when he came home he brought it with him-thanks a lot son ;-) My husband has many bites, so far I only have 2-that I can see.

I believe we may try the ivermectin pills, going to call the Doc today. We have the tea tree oil-maybe we will try the clove oil and maybe the vicks!

This stuff makes you CRAZY..I am a "clean freak" so I am just going nuts right now!!! I am trying to keep this in perspective and count my blessings. I will put my trust in God on this rugged and uncertain path today and not have a pity party-I will work-work-work to get rid of this.

"So my spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed. I spread out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Answer me quickly, O LORD; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit. Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul." - Psalm 143:4, 6-8
