Diotamaceous Earth is cheap will kill bed bugs mites...Order on Amazon. It's a big bag. Just put the powder on the carpet, rub it on your body, your bedding and you will be fine in less than a week. The powder cuts the eskoskelton of the insect and it bleeds to death. You can even drink this. It's completely safe. It kills internal parasites as well. You can give it to your dogs instead of the expensive pills for parasites.

I did try to use DE on my body for a long time. I dusted myself with it every night. The only thing it did was make my already painful skin more dried out and more painful. Not a cure, another waste of money. It probably is good for killing bed bugs but I never had those so no experience on that. However, this is about curing scabies not bed bugs, and DE isn't the answer.

If you really want to cure scabies, now is not the time to be cheap or creative. Inevitably being cheap and trying to cure at home is going to cost you far more than just seeing a doctor or obtaining some ivermectin & permethrin and using it together.

DE? Oh that's sound advice. No wonder you're such a mess.

What are you talking about? I said that DE is NOT an answer. Been there done that. I wasted a lot of money. Your problem is you don't read, you just curse people out.

DE isn't the answer for bed bugs, either. It's dirt and does absolutely NOTHING for scabies. It's not that expensive, so if you want to waste $10, go ahead and buy it and dust around. And then sweep it up and then go get yourself some ivermectin and permethrin (or Albendazole since Sweetkitten is so set on it) and then cure yourself. DE is good for what? Absolutely NOTHING!!! Drink it? I DON'T THINK SO!!
The DE sales people are out in full force around this neck of the woods.

Demodicosis/arshole:
Why don't you get some DE and sprinkle it where the sun doesn't shine? How about it....
Demodicosis is one of many aliases of one person on this forum who like to stir up trouble. This person and Cindilu drink out of the same bottle and sleep in the same bed.

Hey stop spamming your Diotamaceous Earth! Many have tried that and no one was cured. It's very dangerous stuff.
Cindilu is FRED. Yeah, we know, Cindi-fkface. We know everything is dangerous to you Fred, since you used homeopathy and tinctures, which does about as much as DE... I use the name Sharon because it's Fred's ex-wife and it pisses him off royally. Sharon left him five years ago and he has no one to pick on anymore, except the ladies of this forum.

Scabies mites don't last much longer than about 4 days in the environment. So, if you don't use a piece of clothing for like 8 days, then all the mites should be dead. Therefore, you don't have to put your mattress outside in the sun (that would be a project). Just cover it with heavy plastic and clean the plastic with rubbing alcohol or bleach water. If you feel your mattress is infested, buy an air mattress and use that for about a week, until all mites in your bed are DEAD. Don't use your regular bed, unless it is covered in heavy plastic that you can clean.
Run your a/c, if the air inside your home is humid. Mites live longer in humid environments. They dry out and die in a dry environment.
You can also run a dehumidifier in your home or bedroom. This will certainly dry out everything, the walls, the mattress, the carpet. Dehumidifiers are expensive to run, though.
Buy some cheap shoes and ROTATE them, never wearing the same shoes but once every seven days. If you feel that a pair of shoes may be infested, spray them with Lysol and/or rubbing alcohol. Spray the inside where the mites may be.
Good luck.

Wormwood is and has been a cure for parasites for a long time. I did cure myself of scabies using sulfur soap, zinc, wormwood, and aloe vera gel. If I am selling I am selling a lot of different stuff. As far as I am concerned you can get the horse paste and use it, you may be cured, I hope so. I found a cure elsewhere. What ever you decide good luck.
This sounds like a plan, umathr.

Sulphur soap
zinc
wormwood
and aloe vera gel.

I wonder if it is a cure, though.

I had scabies for a long time. I cured myself using this method. If you go to drvita.com you will find the wormwood and cloves there at a very good price and free shipping. Use a bath brush or nail brush to work the sulfur soap into your skin. No need to press to hard. Let dry. The zinc makes a big difference. Do not take to much zinc. Use organic aloe. There are many different kinds of zinc, do some research, and get the best one for. I used zinc gluconate it is very cheap. The wormwood is sold in a anti parasitic kit which includes wormwood, cloves, and black walnut something. I did not get the kit I used the wormwood from kroeger herbs, no cloves, no black walnut, its up to you. I found that scabies hate aloe, its hard to explain but they hate aloe. It is probably a good idea to alkalize your body, this can be done easily with high grade baking soda.

Scabies suck so freaking much. Almost a year has gone by and mine won't go away. They just keep coming back. And the cream itches so bad when I apply it, I can't even sleep at night.

hey guys i want to add something, beside washing your bed sheets and clothes you need to get you mattress and pillows clean as well, and to clean pillows and mattress put them in sun for at least one day, change sides after 2-3 hours, open the windows of your house and let the sun light get in. It is an old practice to get rid of all kind of mites from bed and pillows to put them in sun.

Ensure that you cover the mattress with heavy plastic, so that mites cannot imbed themselves in the mattress material.
The heavy plastic is easy to clean with rubbing alcohol or bleach water.

one thing I found that was very good at controlling the itch was sulfur soap.

This company, TDR, For Reseach on diseases of poverty, http://www.who.int/tdr/en/ ,refuses to put Scabies on their list of diseases. If they would, doctors all over the world will get more money for training regarding & monies to help with training.

Ok here's my deal. I've got tinyly little bumps, like blisters, VERY itchy. But no zigzagging tracks. As far as I can tell they're only on my fingers. And I'm the only one in teh house who's got them, neither my wife, nor my kids have them. Are they scabies? Some are in small clusters of 3 or 4 tiny blisters, others are a bit larger, as large as a mayeb a 1/4 inch. Most are 1/8 inch or smaller. If popped they weep a clear and very sticky pus, which I immediately clean and sterilize to try and prevent whatever it is from spreading. My wife works at a nursing home which would explain where they came from, except that she has no symptoms. And considering how contagious they are, and that no one else in the house has them, I'm at a loss....

It doesn't sound like Scabies. She would have them worse than you if she brought them home.
