hi, i need people's help... me and my boyfriend have been itching for the last 3-4months... he went to the docs and they brushed it off as bed mites or something so we spent a fortune on stuff for that and nothing happened... we both went and they said we had scabies... they gave us Derbac M. you cover your body in it for 24hours then wash it off and the same again a week later. we did this and we're still scratching... i am not allowed to work until im totally cured and i cant afford to take any more time off work... plus, im covered in scabs and blood is always on the bed covers from itching at night. please somebody help me, coz it is actually driving me mad. and you read about these people who have had it for years and i couldnt cope with it. please help. thank you!!
girl you need to go back to the dr and get the cream again and leave it on 24 hours and you have to wash all your clothes with detergent that has bleach in hot water and your bedding and dry it all on high heat. You also have to go buy some spray that kills scabies or mites and spray your couch or anywhere y'all sit really well and vacuum it. Also go to the pet store and buy some carpet sprinkles that kill mange sprinkle all over your carpet and don't vacume for a few days also do your car the same and never wear the same clothes twice you have to wash them right after you take them off. Also anything you can't wash spay or put in trash bags tie them tight and don't open them for at least a week spray your mattress and buy a cover for it there cheap at Walmart you have to kill all of them or you will keep getting it also buy tea tree shampoo for your hair.

I have to say, two months ago, I applied 10% camphor from head to toe and I was going nuts from the crawling, now I know why..if it indeed wakes up the dam mites, I immediately woke up at 3am and took a shower then applied my normal clove/coconut oil...so, maybe the vicks from head to toe then jumping in the borax bath is not so nuts, maybe we drop the ball too soon, on somethings we don't have enough knowledge of hmmm? I got the 10% camphor from an Asian market.

Just a little FYI for those out there without a doctor and are SELF TREATING scabies (or what you think is Scabies).
Last year I had scabies, confirmed by a clinic, and because I have a weakened immune system due to Thyroid Disease, I catch it often. What I didn't expect that made a HUGE impact was SECONDARY INFECTIONS: with scabies comes scratching and with raw exposed skin, comes all sorts of nasty infections. After my second visit to the clinic when I was SURE there still were bugs in me, we discovered that while the mites were dead, I had STAPH INFECTIONS in different ways and FUNGAL infections too. Cellulitis, Folliculitis, Yeast, and bacteria were found in the area where we killed the mites as well as the leftover dead bugs with bug poop. That is a recipe for discomfort! I had to STOP over-treating with pesticides and start treating with anti-fungal and antibacterial medications. I would have never thought that the bugs were gone and kept on treating them which was making my skin weaker to fend off the Staph and Fungal infections that looked like more Scabies. BEWARE of self treating as you just don't know what can grow on you!
NOw here am again a year later after staying in a cheap motel and contracting Scabies again, with Yeast fungus and all the other cooties. Mostly licated under my breasts and in my butt crack. I am on my 1st Permethrin round, with anti fungal powder accompanying it. Keep your skin DRY as best as possible to combat the fungal cooties! And use Anti Bacterial cream (Neosporian) in the days after a Permethrin round to HEAL YOUR SKIN. DONT think you can solve this alone: get to a clinic and don't be stupid!!!

I know this might sound crazy;however, Ive worked in a nursing home for 9 years, and I know all about Scabies.To treat them I would run a bath (as you usually would) Take bleach(of any kind)and place about 5-7 caps full in the bath.The bleach is deluted in by the water,so you won't have to worry about it being too strong.Take a bath as you normally do. The bleach may dry your skin and may be a little harsh on your skin;however the itching will cease and the scabies will be gone. Do this a couple of times (at night)
How long should I soak in the water. Can I put my head and face under the water.

Please tell me that the bleach really does work? I need to get rid of it I cant work or go to tafe and I hate it.
I live in two places 3days a week with my dad and the rest of the week with my mum which means I have two houses to clean frantically. I just want to cry all the time. Im 18 and im at a fragile part of my life. I need help something I can do that is simple and cheap. My family will not help me keep the house clean becaude none of them have it and they dont have to put up with the itchyness. It keeps me awake at night and wakes me up when I do sleep. I cant deal woth it any longer. This is my cry for help ill do anything that I can do that is possible to do by myself.:/

Ask for some pills to resist scratching, that just makes it worse. After you apply the lotion it takes about a day to kill all the bugs on your body but you skin is still reacting so after applying the lotion it will be about a week before you stop the itching

I started a new treatment. My new treatment is to use a hair dryer on my skin. Heat kills scabies and I hope destroys the eggs. So far I think it is working. I have been doing it for a few days now and it seems to work. Just be careful to not burn your self with the hair dryer. I use the hair dryer on my whole body. I also have been putting on coconut oil which should help too. I put it in my hair too since it is a good conditioner.

I hope in a few days these things are done once and for all. I am tired of trying different things and finding they don't work for me to finally completely get rid of them. If this works I promise to let you guys know if they are gone for good.

don't put coconut oil on tell you are done blow drying. Coconut oil is probably flameable.

The great thing about the blow dryer treatment is that you can use the blow dryer on your back which is hard to reach with other methods.

Use on the whole body and hair. I even do my face. Just be careful not to burn your self with the dryer it can get pretty hot. Worth the risk for me. It never really got hot enough for me to worry about it.

Coconut oil is good for your skin but it will not kill scabies; even with a hair dryer! I have tried absolutely everything on this forum over the course of 3 years! I am sure the permethrins creams work or the duvet ivermectin pour-on for cattle. I had tried absolutely everything including all the natural remedies on this forum until I realized the truth of why I couldn't get rid of scabies! Most people don't realize that it is their environment that reinfects them. I had gone through this dance for yrs....getting cured and then getting them again by wearing clothes that I had even washed.....but what most people don't realize is that scabies are hardy enough to even live through washes with bleach!! They even live longer in your home than most people realize. Especially bedding and places that offer sluffed off skin....like mattresses. It wasn't until I started boiling the clothes that I wore and just about threw out my bedding (covered mattress with plastic) that I was able to be cured. So all you folks dealing with scabies, please learn from my experience and take my advice!! You will rid of these demons in no time!!!

I might add that a sugar free, natural diet helps in lessening the numbers of scabies as they seem to breed better on an unhealthy body.

Nothing destroys the eggs..........that is why you have to use the creams a few times to be effective. BOIL all your clothes (scabies can survive a wash) put plastic on your mattress and iron your bedding. You are right that heat kills them or slows them down, but a hair dryer isn't enough. Read my other post which tells you why.

Also I once got reinfected by my shower curtain!! And this was more than a 2 months between reinfections. Your environment is the key to ridding yourself of scabies. Of course, you have to have an effective treatment for yourself as well. All the natural cures didn't cure me although it might have caused the numbers to lower some. Clove oil was somewhat effective, but undiluted, it burns the skin badly. I learned this the hard way!! It didn't seem to burn on contact, so I decided to put it on my skin right out of the bottle; just on my legs though as that was the worst infested area for me. BAD idea! I had burns that took me a month to cure!! Good luck to everyone. I come back here once in a great while to educate those who will listen. Please believe me as I have gone through every imaginable cure...and then some.

Hey Ive just found out I have scabies last night, but Ive had the itchy rash for a month. I scratched my head last night, as my heads been the itchiest; and a little insect with 6 legs and a bkack stripe fell out of my head. In panic, I rinsed my head with water and applied a lot of conditioner. This allowed some of the mites to fall out, but not all of them. I kept the conditioner in my hair and wrapped it in an old towel, but it's now 6:10am and I havent been able to sleep since 1:30 because I can feel them crawling about in my hair and it's disgusting. I'm going on holiday in 7 days, and I need them gone by then, please help me???

So, I can't help but think that the person who exposed our family to scabies is at fault. Due to the fact that she lived in a womens shelter! Anyway, we all have it! I don't have health insurance to go to the doc to get treatment so I have diatamatious earth. I was itching horribly and I dusted my whole body with it and 20 minutes later the itching stopped! So, does anyone know how often and how long i need to treat? Thanks...
