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.

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.
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...

Some say it works and some say it doesn't but if it works, keep using it everywhere, including around your home and car. Don't stop for at least several weeks. If you can get it in the beginning, you're one of the lucky ones. Doctors likely wouldn't have helped you anyway although you could likely order Nix cream over the internet if you wanted to try it as well. Sometimes it works.

Totally disagree Canuckette. You are one of the ones on here who is selling diatomaceous earth. You are one of many on this forum pushing this stuff and it does absolutely NOTHING FOR SCABIES. If you can find a doctor who will prescribe both permethrin AND IVERMECTIN then you are well on your way to being cured. What gives it away is that you are telling people that a doctor will not help you with scabies and that is an all out LIE. Go ahead and push your snake oils on here. DE will do nothing but harm your lungs and clog your pores. You are a FRAUD Canned Bucket. You've been on this forum for way too long and I finally figured out that you are with the Naturasil snake oil bunch of folks here pushing their sulphur soaps and DE for years now. Stop your sh* canned bucket.

Dealing with these mites can be a huge problem for many. Remember that none of the meds out there kills the eggs. So most people on here do at least 4 doses or permethrin and ivermectin to beat these. I have learned that most people find it difficult to time their treatments. From what I have learned here, is that when you apply the permethrin on off days that you are not taking the ivermectin, this can be effective.

You always have to keep your environment mite free. Clean your bedding in hot water. I have found that rotating bedding and clothes, not wearing or use anything but once every 7 days, works, because scabies mites don't usually last long in the environment. keeping your environment dry, by running an a/c or a dehumidifier helps.

Straight rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle will kill any mite in the environment. Using an insect growth regulator helps to keep them from multiplying in the environment. Depending on the type of mite you have, some last longer in the environment than other mites.

Everyone in the family needs to be treated at the same time.

Any pets should be treated, too, either with revolution or ivomec. Talk to your vet about treatment.

Usually doctors prescribe permethrin and will give you a few refills, as they know that nothing kills the eggs. What most of them don't know is that, depending on your immunity, your age, the type of mite you have, etc. an aggressive treatment is necessary. If, after a few doses of permethrin and ivermectin, and you still have these mites, I would definitely stop all treatment and reevaluate your approach. Reinfestation is a problem with the mites.

Washing your clothes with arm and hammer powdered laundry detergent or adding borax to your laundry, helps to kill these mites. Use hot water, not warm water.

Again, don't use the same item of clothing and bedding but once every 7 days.

These mites do not travel far from the host. No need to spray your entire home with pesticides. Just concentrate on cleaning everything close to you, like your computer area, the laundry room, your bed, the pets' bedding, etc.

You may want to buy an air mattress from walmart, if you are getting reinfested from your bed. But, if you time this right, you can still use your bed. Just buy a good vinyl cover for the bed and clean it with rubbing alcohol or windex or bleach water. Alcohol works great with these mites.

Not many people suffer from allergic reactions to Elimite Permethrin cream. This is very effective for scabies mites.

I would emphasize to the receptionist in any doctor's office that you are suffering with a parasitic skin infestation and you need to see the doctor immediately. Also, call around and inquire if they will prescribe the stromectol ivermectin pills. The ivermectin kills these mites. Print out the Center for Disease Control information on how to treat scabies and bring it with you. Ivermectin Stromectol is now being used throughout the world to treat these ecto parasites.
From my experience, this medication is highly effective.

Beware of internet scams selling home made creams which are way way overpriced.

Some of the items these companies sell are diatomaceous earth (doesn't work).

Sulphur soap (doesn't work).

homeopathic tinctures (doesn't work).

parasite cleanses (doesn't work).

herbal tinctures (doesn't work).

just use caution when on these forums. Not everyone here wants you cured. They, in fact, want to make money off of you.

Sulfur soap does work and it very inexpensive. I had scabies and I got rid of them. I used sulfur soap, aloe vera gel, the organic kind with as little additives as possible. Also I took zinc gluconate and an herbal remedy called wormwood. If you do nothing else that I recommend at least take the zinc it is very very inexpensive and I believe the scabies hate it. Please look the zinc up on webmd and read a little about it.

What is really interesting in Umathr's treatment is that zinc gluconate is very antibacterial. It doesn't matter that umathr believes scabies hate the zinc because the scabies could care less about it. Zinc is recommended for skin infections of a bacterial nature, like acne, by some because zinc gluconate is very antibacterial.

Wormwood is used for parasitic treatments of internal parasites but isn't effective for scabies and depending what type of wormwood can be very hard on the liver. Wormwood is also very antibacterial and antifungal.

Sounds to me that since Umathr's "scabies" went away with what would be normally considered an ineffective scabies treatment that he actually didn't have scabies but instead had/has a bacterial infection.

These bacterial infections symptoms "go away" when the bacterial count in the body is low enough. Then over time the bacterial counts builds back up and eventually a year or two later symptoms return.

The infection that Umathr was treating was a bacterial infection. A bacterial infection that can show very similar symptoms to scabies. The Bacterial infection that is causing the confusion is bartonella. You can get bartonella from a mite infection and when the mites are gone you don't know it because the bartonella symptoms are very similar.

This is really interesting. If you have an idea how the immune system works then this study shows how the "helper"
cells that convey information to the "killer" cells need zinc to perform the identification task.

http://www.jimmunol.org/content/178/5/3116.lo...

"Human Peptidoglycan Recognition Proteins Require Zinc to Kill Both Gram-Positive and Gram-Negative Bacteria and Are Synergistic with Antibacterial Peptides"

So one thing that Umathr's Zinc was doing was actually bringing the immune deficiencies up.

Sure that will come in handy for a bacterial infection.

Hey umathr i ran across something else interesting. Here is a coincidence for ya;

http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp...

"The best poisons to feed the Morgellons beasts are Zinc & Sulfur, orally & topically."

"These will stop them dead in their tracks & speed up healing of skin & soft tissue."

Since morgellons is actually pathogenic synergy with a genetic engineering component, essentially a collection of bacterial infections that are symbiotic, then using zinc to bring the immune system back to functional levels because bartonella shuts down the immune system is shown to work because of the explanation and link in the previous post.

Base form sulfur is antibacterial for the skin, there are even a class of antibiotics called antibacterial sulfonamides. Bactrim would be one of these.

Umathr, thanks for the accidental discovery of zinc and it's relation to these pathogenic, synergistic and symbiotic infection remedy. For peace of mind you should probably keep taking them or switch to a more effective long term treatment.

Zinc Availability

A study at Bastyr University Research Institute reported in June 1987 compared the absorption of three different complexed forms of zinc, including zinc picolinate and zinc gluconate. Researchers noted that zinc levels rose significantly during zinc picolinate administration, but showed no significant change when other forms of zinc were administered. "The results of this study," they concluded, "suggest that zinc absorption in humans can be improved by complexing zinc with picolinic acid."
