Hi Scabies3

Manuka is working much better than using perm cos it is relieving my itches too. I do find after applying on body for 6 hours from showering, i am itching again but it is better than nothing! I am told that manuka will take time to work as synthetics would - maybe giving it a couple of weeks? I have used manuka on my hair it has drastically reduce the feeling of bugs crawling around.

I still use mitactin but only on NON sensitive areas like hair and soles of foot. I am not using it on my waist as it burnt my skin and made it really red. I think i developed mild lumpy rash from it after a day's use.(i think derma tech made up the testimonials themselves to boost sales, the pictures of the customer don't look genuine) the only thing worth buying from them are the cleaning products, body scrub and possibly sulfur creams...

Right now i am going to try to a new product LICE R GONE. Its my last hope!

Hi Casey. I do not use the internet website "cures." They are too expensive for me and I have heard too many stories of people not getting cured on them, and once they get your money, they tend to ignore you, and not answer your emails, etc. Some products you don't even know what the ingredients are. They prey on people like us. It's best to stick with what the doctors prescribe: ivermectin, permethrin, lindane, durbac m, sulfur, benzyl benzoate, neem, tea tree oil, and for environment, there are many, alcohol, bleach, epsom salts, windex, etc.

hey everyone. i'm seriously going to try to post this on several forums on scabies. i finally got my package of Stromectol from Magicpharma.com today and i took the first pill several hrs ago. i've already noticed a HUGE difference in the amt of itching i normally have when one uses the creams and lotions. i bought 20 pill for about 50 bucks even though one is normally suppose to use it once a week for about 5 weeks tops. like i said, for me it was real bad. in fact i had just noticed today that i have crusting in areas where i haven't had an issue before, even with the use of creams for over a year. this is just my view, but i think scabies is much more of a serious problem today than it was decades ago because of the skabes building tolerance over time. but yeah, this site is legit and my itching has already seriously died down. the toxicity in this stuff isn't as bad as other things like lindane, so i seriously think these pills are the last resort for a lot of us.

hi scabies 3
You are right. I have yet to find Neem and Tea Tree oil working for me. Because ihave tried, they never really did relieve the itches for me.

I need to find out a brand that is genuinely producing the full potent effect so far none has fared better except i will stick with manuka right now... I'm not too confident about trying oral drugs.

I find it interesting because i have had a history of skin problems (including headlice) myself. I don't think psorinum is for everybody though.

Hey Casey and others

I've persisted with the Manuka in bath each night coupled with regular sheet changing (every 3 days) and an ivermectin dose also at each 3 days and the symptoms are reducing slowly but surely..i am sleeping better and crawling reduced, fingers crossed it goes to zero soon! What concerns me are red bite marks on my body that don't seem to be going very fast. I would def recommend ivermectin which i buy online at magicpharma.com
Hopefully won't need to go back to permethrin which made my skin blow up in a nasty nasty rash, at least the manuka oil soothes it.
Am having to pay to see a dermatologist too thought his experience may be useful despitye the obvious expense i figured after all this it might be worth it. I won't trust general doctors they are soooooooo useless it is untrue, the negligence is bloody criminal, they don't want to know (unless they get scabies of course!!!)
Are your symptoms improving?

hi Suffertoo,

I am getting a bit better each day. the critters used to come out after 6pm and persist on until i do a shower or a bath. Now they really start irritating me around 2 or 3 am. i've stopped having baths with borax because it was making my nails too soft and they break away so easy after lathering hard with my hair. i am doing everybit of treatments i can get to hurry up with those critters. I change my bed and blankets every time i start sleeping (twice a day) and wash them daily. a bit of my legs are affected with itches. Now my challenge is to clean them up in hair, neck, foot , ankle and around my arms. My hands are all clear except 7 tiny red bumps.

i put my feet in plastic bags when wearing sneakers this way the shoes don't get easily infected. Sometimes they do because the plastic bags (really thin ones) starts bursting a hole because of my toes. i've just gotten this sulfur cream for the face from Derma Tech RX and it works a bit like perm at first. stings a little at first but Nothing like perm causing me to tremor.

I am going to See a naturopath soon tis weekend and hopefully she will give me PSORINUM.

Glad to know youre doing better. How long have you had this for before seeking treatment?

Regards,
Casey

i forgot to add that i have used Tea tree oil (Brand: Thursday Plantation) it does not work. May relieve me of itches for 4 hours but they all come back stronger and aggressive. I don't know where i can get a tea tree oil bottle that will work for me as others have claimed....

With all my research I've recently found something from West Africa which had a 100% success rate when used over 5 consecutive days. Google "Lippia Multiflora" it's an essential oil, non toxic. Anyone tried this? It's been used for 100 years in Africa. I'm going to try and find an herbal store which may carry this. A great information site for scabies; www.geocities.com/dhr6878

Hi All,

an update of my fight with scabies. I went to see a doctor two days ago to check up on scabies. He insists i am "CURED". Despite the fact i told him i still get crawling sensations on armpits, back and feet and getting waken up around 2 am. He also thinks i am imagining it too much about bugs crawling over me and he said scabies do not end up on face and hair!!! He referred me to a dermatologist to get skin scrapings to confirm if mites are alive on my body but that was pointless for me because i would be allowed an appointment after mid May. That was a waste of hope seeing the doctor.

Meanwhile I am looking into doing the neem powder paste with turmeric and see what i really get out of this!!!
