Natalie,I have tried 2 treatments of permethrin. Ive been trying to keep up with washing things daily and vaccuuming. Im a single mom and work. We still have scabies. Help! This is driving me crazy!
You can get 10% permethrin ant killer from your local feed store. Mix it 50 / 50 with an oil so you have a 5% solution and apply ithead to toes. Coconut oil works well.The stuff from the feed store has petroleum base and stinks but isn't any more dangerous than Vaseline. Permethrin is synthetic Pyrethrin. Pyrethrin is what is used in bug spray in food prep areas. Pyrethrins are made from the Chrysanthemum flower and the toxins are only deadly to insects. You can get fly spray for horses that has real Pyrethrins in it. For internal use you can use Ivermectin horse paste wormer and the tube has a body weight measure on it. I used these and cured myself but if I knew then what I know now I would have gone with 10% sulphur soap fro a few weeks and achieved the same results.
