My daughter had the scabies since she was 2 months old. She is now going to turn 7 months old. My husband has it the wost but shes the one who got it first. All the other kids we have 4 in total, and us are goung crazy. They have been perscribing wvery type of cream you can think of and there is still no hope. I dont know what else to do...
What worked for me was neem oil and neem aura skin cream! I put the smelly 100% neem oil on at night! And washed it off in the morning! Neem oil is non toxic to humans! At first you will see many more bumps! That is the scabies trying to get away from the oil that they are now ingesting! Do this every night before bed and wash it off in the morning. Than apply the neem aura lotion! This does not work over night! For the first couple of days you might need to put the neem oil and the the lotion on but aftrr you see the skin improving you will need just the oil at night and the lotion through out the day! Do this for a few months snd make sure you iron or steam everything you put on

Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade
mix 2/3 grapeseed oil with 1/3 Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) into a spray bottle. Apply to the skin morning & night. Sprinkle DE into the bedding each day with a salt shaker being careful not to breath it. All scabies & itching will be gone within 1 week. Continue treatments for 6 weeks to kill off the hatchlings. DE kills them on contact & the Grapeseed Oil smothers their breathing tube.
Neem oil, tea tree oil, grape seed oil and castor oil mixture can be used immediately after showering before drying off.
Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade can be taken internally as a drink as well. Google it.

i got scabies about 9 months ago. i have had persistent treatments and both of my dermatologists say that i have not had scabies for a few months now but i stil have red nodules on my upper thighs and buttocks. i have been taking topical steriods to reduce the swelling in the nodules which seems to work for awhile then the nodules swell up again. Is it possible to just have the skin removed where the nodules are so i can finally get rid of them? Anyone who could help please do because i am desperate.
Sodium laurel sulfate (SLS), can make painful itchy bumps if you're allergic. It's in virtually all manufactured soaps. Use a natural soap like Dr Bronner's with no SLS. Use Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner (9.5% HcL acid) put it on itchy area in shower for 2-3 minutes then rinse it off. That also cures skin cancer.

http://www.vetionx.com/defendex.php This shampoo will help with the itching. I used a spray bottle and diluted shampoo to spray myself when I was itching.

The real solution is to use Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade all over your house. I sprinkled it on all carpets, chairs and car seats. I did not clean it off for 1 day. I also sprinkled it on my mattress. I put it directly on the mattress and then put the sheet over it. You want the diatomaceous earth on you all the time. This is the key to getting rid of these nasty little mites. I and my wife were tortured for over 6 months with these irritants.

These two products saved us from the hell we were in. Hope this helps.

I have battled the little demons for over a year and like many of you have spent a bunch of money and had really low self esteem. I have tried all the oils, soaps, peroxide, bleaches, borax, natural remedies and nothing worked oh also the pesticide cream. Finally I tried the ivermectin paste from the feed store, apple flavor, cost 4.50. I mixed it in water and warmed it up to drink, measured it by my weight same as horse, and did it three weeks in a row and I know they are finally gone, after the first week you could see the trails they made trying to escape. im not itchy, my skin is white again not red and my self esteem is growing each day. It may not work for everybody but I sure wish I had done this months ago.

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!!
Ichthammol and frontline plus. Mix the two into an ointment and leave on skin for 2-3 hours. Wipe off with paper towels and discard in an air tight plastic bag. Do not wash off the residue! keep the remaining thin layer on your skin and it will protect you from re-infestation. Shave thick hair before treatment, head groin, etc.

Sterilize your clothing by baking in an oven at 250F for 20 minutes, burn sulfur candles in your house and car (be careful!) when you are not home!

I have had these for almost 3 months and have tried everything on my skin, this is the only this that has worked for me.

You need to get a dermatologist to prescribe ivermectin. Have you read PAGE 5 from the Thread, Scabies is Highly Contagious. Look for the poster named "Scabies in FL." Read all his posts there on page 5. Please do a major internet search on ivermectin. Research it thoroughly.

I do not like this. I believe my 17 month old got this from his dad who works in a nursing home and has what I believe scabies all over the poor residents. The nursing home staff won't DO ANYTHING. So now I have to figure this out since its coming home.
I read about Neem oil and it smells so bad. Has any more used it before. I don't know if I can use it because of the small. Thankfully my 17 month old doesn't care about the smell.

I have black specs all over my floors which I use a sticky roller couple times a day. when I put body lotion on my legs black specs seem to fly out on the floor. I have had a few bites, but not many anymore, actually smaller little pimples. I don't know if this could be scabies or what, feels like static on my legs. more of a stinging sensation, sometimes a little itchy.
any ideas on what this could be? when I was on vacation I could feel them and also see these black specs in the bed. when I unpacked suitcase it was full of these black specs.

Is it normal to get small itchy bumps 4 days after permethrim 5% treatment? Does this mean it didnt work??

thankyou mary. ive never been on a forum before... theyre great, everyones really helpful. i guess we're all miserable together?! what have you used/tried?
. Scabies love dry skin. Start with the greasiest body wash you can use.
Invest in a bag less vacuum cleaner and vac every surface possible and often. Vac your vehicles at least once a week. Sweep as often as possible. Vacuum pack any extra clothing/linens not in use. Stay away from ivermectin and anything harsh. I got non Hodgkin's lymphoma after having followed crazy advice. I had a tumor between my lung and heart. Be careful, it's tempting to try anything when you're desperate.

LISTEN UP!! Everyone, go to Amazon and look up "Kleen Free." It is a natural solution to scabies. It is made up of enzymes that will kill these mites. You can spray it on the skin and it will kill them within a few days. It's natural and non-toxic. You can spray on your furniture, bedding, clothes, and it will not harm your pets. Read up on it and find out for yourself.

It took a really bad sunburn for my friend to finally get rid of scabies or maybe it was the salt water in the ocean.. Maybe both. Suffered for months. After the beach trip... They were GONE!
