Done, finished, over.
There is hope. Had scabies for 5 mths. Horrible creatures that come back more than Jason from Friday the 13th.
Tried tea tree oil and a host of other home remedies. These may have got rid of surface mites however once you have them for a while they are deep in your body and the only way to get them out is with Ivermictin or Vermox prescribed by a Dr. In parallel with the pills use Permethrin at least twice. I had to do 2 consecutive treatments of Vermox because they were still not dead. To not get reinfected stay off of furniture (I kept away from my new couch for a month) with material and clean all surfaces daily. Please follow the many cleaning routines posted as it is so important.
Post scabies feels allot like scabies. It has been 2 months since I have been mite free and the dead corpses of the mites are still coming out of my body. The first month+ of post scabies was horrid. Itchy as hell and I did not know if they were actually gone since the feeling was so similar.
I posted this because I know how horrid scabies is and there is a way to get back to a normal life. Best wishes to all of you!
A lot of people say they can see these things. I have never seen anything crawling on me.

I have had scabies too in college when I rescued a puppy from a group of kids shooting it with a pellet gun. And now, 20 years later I have it again. I am not sure how we, my dog and I got it. I came back from out of town and my dog was itching like crazy. I thought it was separation anxiety because it has happened before. I have only had him for a year. Anyway, I have tried Dawn dish soap, DE, permethrin, tea tree oil, lavender oil, borax and nothing it killing them. I have spent hundreds of dollars on this crap, laundry, dr and vet bills. I did not know until today it is scabies although I suspected it. I can see my dog is losing hair around his ears and tiny patches on his body. I want to cry because I have not slept well in months. Now I am worried I probably have contaminated others. Tomorrow I am going to the vet again to get whatever poisonous stuff they have to kill this stuff on my dog. I am thinking of getting out of town for awhile after we are all treated. I was not sure what it was because I rescued a sea gull using a blanket and did not wash the blanket for awhile but it sat in my car. I thought I had bird mites. Seeing my dogs chest all inflamed and ears too. Damn. Anyone had luck with DE?
I had scabies for a long time..years. I did get rid of them. I will tell you how I got rid of them. First order sulfur soap you can get eight bars of soap from sulfursoap.com for 25 dollars no shipping fee, and they will get to you fast and fresh. Start using the sulfur soap, wash with it and leave it on the most effected areas let dry on your skin. Work it into the skin using a bath brush. Next buy some zinc the vitamin take up to 90mg a day. There are different kinds of zinc but this is a very cheap vitamin, 5 dollars will cover it. In addition to the soap and zinc, I suggest using aloe vera both internal and external. I used the gel form externally, the scabies seemed to just hate aloe. I did not use the aloe internally but it might be a good idea. Of course use organic aloe gel and juice with the fewest additives possible. Do not use the goo with all the additives unless its all you have. You could try and wash your dog with the sulfur soap, and you might use the aloe on your dog, it might help. I was also taking DE. So I got rid of them with sulfur soap, working it into the skin and letting it dry. Taking zinc which I thought was very helpful and maybe the key. Also I was using aloe. So good luck. Once I started taking the zinc the scabies were gone pretty fast. I do get my soap from sulfursoap.com but you can get it where you want to. Call your local pharmacy they will have it or get it for you fast

no, you never had scabies. you've been on this forum for YEARS, and you always ensure you list your website on your posts. you can't bullsh*t me, you greedy little sulphur soap salesman.

believe me, you are a scam.

you can argue with me until the cows comes home, and you won't convince me otherwise.

anyone can buy sulphur soap from WALMART or many of the pharmacies carry it for about $2.00 a bar. You don't have to pay $19 for it. But, GUESS WHAT??

It doesn't cure scabies.

The legitimate scabacides cure scabies.

Sulphur soap only helps to keep the numbers down, if that. it dries out your skin, too. it just doesn't work.

My husband & I got scabies because our cousin spent the night in our apartment & slept on our couch when he unknowingly had it. We've taken extremely hot showers & applied 100% tea tree oil on our entire bodies & changed our sheets while also regularly vacuuming our couch & bed sheets.. It's not getting any better, only for the night we apply the oil, but afterwards it's back to what it was.. Any advice? Can't really afford to go to the doctors.. Thanks.

I finally broke down and did ivermectin yesterday. Stuff made my head feel weird and I did have a heart palpitation, but only once. Do I need to treat again in 7 days? I took it on an empty stomach. I have fatty liver so I am thinking it may have worked extra strong because of the fat content. Husband and I took 6 pills of stromectol each. Do we repeat in 7 days? Should I leave my house for a few days? If we do, will the eggs hatch and re-contaminate my home after we return? Should I bomb? We used perm 5% 3 times leaving it on for 24 to 48 hours with few results.

Okay,

My bad. I guess it does not kill the eggs. About 4 days after my dose I got crazy itchy where I have the bugs. I can only think that eggs must have hatched and it started all over again. I am due to take another dose tomorrow. In the mean time...my husband and I moved out of the house for 3 days. I cleaned before we left and then cleaned and sprayed after we returned. My house is encased in plastic. I feel like I am poisoning myself. My skin is dry from the bleach baths and the sulfur soap and my body aches from the 4 times I have used perm lotion. Does this happen? I am worried about taking the next dose if Iver because I do have fatty liver disease but I will take it anyway. This is depressing.

One thing I did do yesterday that was interesting...I took a 1.87 horse paste ads applied it topically to most itchy area then rubbed DMSO on it and it stopped the itching. I got the tell tale foggy head from the Ivermectin so I washed it off because I am doing the next oral dose tomorrow. Later last night the itching stopped completely and the really bad spots on my elbow crease dried up and scabbed. Some of the other spots have returned but not like before. Is is okay to use Ivermectin topically and orally even if I am using DMSO to push it in? I don't want to make the mite resistant.I have all this stuff because I have horses. I hesitated taking the paste wormer though so asked the doc for an RX

These Scabie mites have been biting my ear drums, my gums, around my skull, my temples. I'm really concerned what's going to happen next since dermatologists can't diagnose crap. I fight every hour of the day to keep them out of my eyes. I've never rubbed so much in my life.

I did my next ivermectin treatment. My doc wouldn't let me move forward until I came in to see her and prove they were still not gone! Only one small spot on my upper elbow reacted so I am wondering if that is the only active mite patch I have. I pray so. I used a touch of perm cream then heated the area to kill any left-overs. Then I got scared and decided against leaving it on for too long, washed it off and applied Nu Stock. Hope it works. I feel like I am sooooo close. I did add a touch of DMSO as well before I got scared because I have a problem absorbing anything through my skin. I have had problems with other medications as well. I have VERY dry skin so it stops good absorption. I wonder if that is a common thread for us all? I know the DMSO will carry it deeper. The final spot did get really bothered when I added the DMSO to the perm cream. When I say added, BTW, I mean i spot treated with perm cream and then I took a Q-tip and barely touched the DMSO and then placed it on the spot. As I said, then I washed it off after 5 minutes because I was scared. Think I will be okay? I also bought some Neem and clove oil because I am so tired of poisoning myself. The Neem oil seemed to work but it made me feel kinda weird. Didn't like it. The clove didn't seem to have much effect. Does Neem soap work as well? I am writing this just after my dose of Iver and I am a bit spacey but not as bad as the first time. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Alsoooooo, I used a IPL light to drive in the perm cream when I spot treated a couple of days ago. I applied it to the worst spot on my arm. I then applied the IPL light and I could feel them go wild. I kept it on there and kept moving it onto the spots. That was the weirdest thing I have ever felt. To have something moving IN you under the skin just below the "itch/scratch" point is just wrong. The next day the patch was gone. It felt like 50 were moving away from the light and heat. It was probably not that many but it felt like it!

Why would be you be scared to leave some permethrin/dmso on your active areas as spot treating? It seems logical to me. Many people on this forum spot treat, in addition to full body treatment.

The neem, clove, and tea tree oils won't do much for your scabies.

Your story about 50 mites moving under your skin is... well... a bit much.. don't you think? "must be your spacey iver feeling" going on, huh....

Fiaff, thanks for the answer. I guess I didn't make it clear, sorry, it felt like 50 but I knew it was far less. It was just such a strange feeling.

I was worried because I know that perm cream is so bad for you and have been told that it is a neuro toxin. I certainly don't want to harm myself during this process. It is comforting to know that others do this spot treatment. It does seem to be the ONLY thing that takes em down after the Ivermectin.

That feeling that I get when I take Ivermectin is so strange. Yes, it is definitely spacey. If the eggs hatch every 3 days would it be practicle to treat every 3 or 4 days?

Thank you. I think I should just steer clear of the forum. This is so stressful on its own that I can't imagine having some folks be so unkind. I have questions and it is difficult to get the doc to take me seriously. It is exhausting.

Again, thank you.

Don't stop posting because of a few trolls. Your story will help others. Everyone's symptoms are different. It's good to see others react to meds.
