umathr is a sulphur soap salesperson.

newbies beware of the very slick sales people on this forum.

umathr recommends sulphur soap, aloe vera gel and zinc. how can this possibly cure you of scabies?

yes, inexpensive, but not a cure.

although your post was very sweet, and yes, you are right the ivermectin will cure about 90% of the people coming to this forum.

The other 10% of people coming here will most definitely become the victims of some very slick salespeople who prey on newbies...

I've had scabies for 6 months and tried EVERYTHING mentioned on the forums, but nothing worked.
Finally, I did some research & developed my own mixture which WORKED LIKE A CHARM..NO MORE SCABIES!
I mixed curry powder, sea salt, baking soda & vaseline and applied it ALL over my body.
(the tumeric in the curry kills the scabies, the sea salt draws them OUT of your skin & the vaseline smothers them so they cannot breathe.)
It's safe around eyes, in your ears, in your nose.
You can even rub it on your privates!
Change into some OLD clothes and keep the mixture on for only 2 hours.(relax)
Shower thoroughly in HOT water & wash your curry covered clothes in HOT water.(and your towel)
I have not had ONE itch in days...Hallelujah!

Really? wow your ignorant. But whatever if it came frm south of the border the only reason its being spread is because nasty "Americans" go sleeping around with everyone and or not bathing so who are the real rats?? guess all of us huh.

You aren't a nice person. Wait to you get it from a hand shake, hug, or sitting on an airplane and someone calls you a nasty Mexican. Now I'm caucausion but Spanish real far back, and I see no reason to call people nasty Americans!!!

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!!


The Dr. prescribed a Lindane wash left on my skin for a certain amount of time, it worked. Lindane is a dangerous agricultural poison. It's diluted I'm sure for human skin application. Maybe over the counter. I dont remember it was long ago. but it worked. Get further advise...DON'T EXPERIMENT. LINDANE IS A DANGEROUS POISON. all my clothes, bedding, everything had to be destroyed. It was such a cute, free, puppy. Right at Christmas time. Boy BOY oh BOY.

Fred, why would Canuckette be nuts for asking this question? Would she be nuts if she asked you about your tinctures? Probably, because you are picking on the women here on this forum. You are unhappy, alone and miserable. Poor FRED... Sharon up and left you ages ago...
and for good reason.

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 does the dry skin last for and how bad can it get?

Hi umathr, thank you so much for your info. may I ask you how many days do you apply the sulfur soap in a week or just use the soap every day? how long do you put the gel on? What is your regimen? I went to the site you listed for the organic aloe gel but there are various kind, do you use the 16 oz Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Gel, which doesn't say it's organic. As for the sulfur soap, do you have the brand name of the soap? I hope to follow your regimen and get these horrible critters off me.
When you order the aloe get the organic aloe produced in the USA I guess in california that would be the best and it is not that much more expensive. In fact any organic aloe will do the job. I would order 32 oz bottles. Two bottles should make a very good start. Please take the zinc. As far as the sulfur soap, use as needed, I would say every day maybe two times a day. If the scabies wake you up at night use the sulfur soap. Work the soap into the effected areas with a soft bristle bath brush or a wash cloth. Take up to 100 mg of zinc every day this is important. It is my feeling that scabies hate zinc. Remember scabies are living off of your serum and lymph fluids if you take zinc it gets into those fluids and in my opinion kills the scabies or at least makes life very difficult for them. Zinc with aloe gel, and sulfur soap, will get rid of scabies. Scabies hate aloe gel. You can and I recommend that you apply aloe externally and take it internally. You can do this with the organic gel. You can do the sulfur soap all day long, but take a break every now and then and apply the aloe. I hope this helps. Do not take to much
zinc. Do not exceed 100 mg.

I got my sulfur soap from sulfursoap.com 8 bars for 25 dollars no shipping fee. The soap will get to you fast. In my opinion this is one of the best places to get sulfur soap.

Ive had this tiny outbreak on the outside of either side of my hand for about 6mo. it usually last about a week to two weeks long then dries up and disapears. its the classic red itchy bumpy rash. and it is always in the same spot every outbreak. With this outbreak it is a little bigger. Is this scabies or something else? And if so why has it not spread to other areas over the last six months. also nobody else in my home has any outbreaks.

Of course I am not a sales person for anything. That includes sulfur soap. I bet if you look at the sales of sulfur soap over a 20 year period the sales remain constant. No sales people needed. When I did have scabies I used sulfur soap, but was not able to get rid of the scabies using only sulfur soap. When I started using organic aloe gel and zinc, and sulfur soap, the scabies were gone pretty fast. I believe it was the combination of all 3 that did the trick. Scabies live on the surface of the skin and under the skin. That means they are under the surface tension of the skin. You have to work the sulfur soap into the skin and the aloe into the skin not real hard but a little so the the aloe and the sulfur get under the surface tension. Anyway I am not a sales person. Good luck

Hi umathr, thank you again for the info. I have finally bought the 32 oz aloe gel and I know which one you're talking about, that one actually has pretty good quality. I stumbled upon swansonvitamins.com and found that they offer a better price, you may want to purchase from there as that could help you save in the long run.

Sulfur soap does help me a lot, but it dries up my skin so I couldn't use it every day. I need to take a break in between.

There are some people who do visit this forum to sell their products, but I don't believe you're trying to sell sulfur soap and I know you're not a salesperson. I appreciate that you share the info and your experience. Thanks!(I'm sure this post will be spammed as some idiot would think I'm a salesperson just because I credit sulfur soap and mentioned the site where you could get a better deal! lo1!! Some people need to have good judgment.)

Ive been a lurker here for awhile . Ive been reading posts and tried various things . Ive gotten the Perm cream and used it all over the body . Even my head . Ive got it around the back of my neck in my hairline . I can feel them crawling on me and i try and "swipe" them off . Ive used hand sanitizer on some areas and after a few days the spot has seemed to clear up .Ive read on a forum that if you take rubbing alcohol on a white tissue, and rub it on spots that itch , you will see little black spots that are supposed to be the scabies.I did that and seen several black spots. You are supposed to use a new tissue each time . I bathe in tea tree oil and i go under water up to my nose to completely cover my head and stay there for a few minutes . I can still feel them after a week . Im going insane .
Will bleach in my bath help ? ive washed my sheets and dried them on HOT and i vaccummed my house as well as washed and dried all my clothes . I am at a loss right now and dont know what else to do . My kids are being treated and have done the cleaning as well . Ive bleached every piece of furniture in my house as well . HELP!!!!

Many of us have tried the bleach baths. The result was irritated, dry skin and an unpleasant smell, but no effect on the bugs. If you want to try baths, you need to have something in the water to kill them so they don't just move around. Try a heavy salt bath or Arm & Hammer powder detergent (about a cup of each)- check out that thread. Do those in addition to standard treatments. You might try to get ivermectin from your doctor. Look for posts about ivermectin as well.
