I contacted scabies from my wolfdog,and I have been trying to get rid of them for a year.I have used many products, but, now, I feel I am cured, but I will not stop my regiment fighting them for a long time. I sent for a product off the Internet called , ALLSTOP. It has helped me so much, I dont itch any more. I found out that scabies cannot survive in Enzymes, so I wash my clothes every time I wear them, and bedding everyday in enzyme soap. I spray my house and dog and all areas where we live with Enzymes liquid spray. You can purchase enzymes at Animal feed stores in gallon jugs. Also, you can purchase enzymes at a health food store to eat and help digestion. I am eating them everyday. I also bought Seargents , Gold, flea and tick killer shampoo to wash my hair in. It smells pleasant and doesnt affect my hair condition.I also bought Diamascus Earth powder for my dog and carpets.I have so much sorrow in my heart for you who have contacted this terrible disease. I know how bad they can be. They were in my eyes, nose, ears, mouth, hair, vagina and all over my body. I couldnt sleep and I became so discouraged, I decided, if I couldnt find a cure for this I didnt want to live. I went to 5 doctors and everyone of them didnt help me at all. I hope my information will give you some hope and maby some ideas on how to get rid of these nasty bugs .

Im so glad to hear you've had luck destroying these bugs! I know how terrible it is to treat yourself, believe they are gone, and in a week or two... start itching again.=(

Thanks for the info!

I'm also cured, and I had them as bad as Wofgirl, everywhere, and for more than a year. I used everything--brand Stromectol, Elimite (which is brand permethrin), lots of benzyl benzoate lotion (Benzemul), tons of sulfur (Humco). I also moved around a lot in Florida and disposed of a lot of cheap cotton dresses and underewear from Bealls. I was literally running from mites. Finally, I am home in my apartment, wearing my own clothes, and reunited with my cat. I am cured. I thought it was never going to happen for me, really I despaired, but I kept fighting and treating, because I had no choice. So, don't despair. It can be done. Everyone here who got to cure, and a few brave souls who haven't yet, kept me going.
I have to say that I did not recover emotionally on time. I needed psych meds to deal with the aftermath, as I kept thinking the scabies was coming back. Something told me I was obsessed and not rational, and I got help. The problem is after you have lived with them for a while, they do something to your mind as well, at least, to my mind--messed with it in a big way. I hope all of this helps someone with obssessive aftermath. How to know when you're cured--every itch I relived scabies--it was like having post traumatic stress syndrome--and the symptoms seemed so real--except they weren't relentless as they had been when I was infected, which is the only reason I suspected I was suffering from mental aftermath.

I ordered the All Stop from the Internet, just type it in Google and it will come up. I would like to say, I think when the mite lays its eggs in a tunnel in our skin,causing bumps , there are many , and they hatch and crawl out at different stages. They are at that time, nymphs, which we can feel crawling, then they become adults , breed, and cause stining bites as they burrow into our skin and lay eggs, to reinfest us. I think it is almost impossible to kill them while under our skin, but one of the secrets in getting rid of them is when they first come out as nymphs, so they cant become adults and breed. Thats why I think, it takes a long time to get cured of them, but if we keep up the process of spraying our furniture, using laundry Borox & enzyme soap, and keeping one of the natural scabies treatments on us, that is what makes it work for a cure. I used many of the pesticides perscribed by my doctors, and they made me very sick, and didnt seem to work any better than the natural oils and ointments. I can relate to janetinnyc with her mental problems with Scabies, I felt the same way and am still strugeling with worry of contaminating my family, even tho, I feel they are gone.

I will look into ALLSTOP as well but let me say as an AHT(Animal Health Tech) you did NOT GET HUMAN SCABIES FROM YOUR DOGS OR CATS!!! The mange scabie will go from animal to human but not for long. They will not breed and will soon die out. The human scabie is related to the Mange scabie but it is different. I know I know you can't imagine where else you got human scabies and it is an easy presumption to look to your pets first but this is simply not the case. Mange scabies die on humans after s short time. Human scabies persist and will require a rational mind. AND PLEASE PLEASE STOP PUTTING ANIMAL PRODUCTS ON YOUR BODY! These products have different standards than human products and can do certain damage to your central nervous systems. You have to be outta your mind to be shampooing with Sargents products or ANY ANIMAL PRODUCTS!

I actually purchased the Allstop last week. My daughter was the 1st to have symptoms. I had never heard of scabies and was treating her for dry skin, allergies, etc. When I finally figured out that she had scabies, myself, and my husband started having symptoms. We received our allstop products in the mail on Thursday, treated our mattresses, our furniture, carpets, shoes, and any and every piece of clothes we had wore got washed. We went to a hotel for 3 days as my husband had read that the mites cannot survive after 3 days without a host. We followed all the procedures while at the hotel. We bought the body wash, the spray, salve, mattress pads, disinfectant spray, everything! We are still itching, having the stinging bites, and bumps, and I am very disapointed in this product. I spent $300 on the Allstop,$150 on hotel, and at least $200 just to wash all of the clothes. So $650 later, we still have the problem! And my husband is unemployed and we just spent bill money to try and stop this itch!!!!! I would not advise the Allstop personally because we haven't gotten any relief! The salve(on the site) states that it is suppose to KILL the mites, however, the salve is the exact same ingredients as the spray which says it cleanses and removes debris and irritants. It says nothing about it killing anything!!! Please don't waste your money, and their "money back guarantee" is only for $200 MAX!!!! So I am just OUT the extra $100 I spent. I know we all get very desperate to find a cure, but this one is not it!!!! I have followed all the procedures it says to follow and went a step further by going to a hotel. I hope and pray we can find a solution before it gets to the point of where some of you guys have been. I do not want my children to mentally scared because of this

Lil B,
Thank you for your comment, but my cat got walking dandruff and sleeps next to my head and face, and now I am covered with 40+ bites on my face and this has been for two months, even though he has not been allowed in the bed for about 6 weeks. You CAN get infested with the mites which commonly infect animals. I have confirmed this with a prominent mite researcher, and there are also tons of articles in peer-reviewed vet and medical journals that I have found which also prove this. No - they are not the normal human scabies, but a scabies-like rash, etc. produced from infestation with mites that normally have an animal as a host...

I think that some people are using the animal products as they have worked for others on similar thread postings, and also they are apparently much less expensive than rx products for humans. That is just my guess.

Like I said humans CAN CONTRACT ANIMAL SCABIES but not for long. They will even die out on their own on a human host, although if I got them I'd treat them as opposed to letting them cause unneccessary problems. I'd treat them with neem just like human scabies. But like I said if your using animal pesticides on your person your OUTTA YOUR MIND! Yes they are cheaper but man o man you can do some serious nervous system harm with these products. For heavens sake stop using animal products EXCEPT Natures Miracle Enzyme Oder Remover Cleaner (feed stores) wich is just enzymes. The ALLSTOP product are simply enzyme cleaning solutions in a fancy package and a TOTAL RIPOFF! Some folks just aint gotta conscience!

the ALLSTOP products are nothing more then cleaning enzymes in a fancy package. Buy natures Miracle at your local feed store $39.00 a GALLON! Use it in your bath with the poducts I posted under NEEM! I also use it in my laundry routine!

The ALLSTOP products are simple enzymes. In Theory they are supposed to damage the mites external skeleton. Like a crap or a spider(same family as mites) their skeleton is on the outside and if ya damage that the animal will dehydrate and DIE DIE DIE!(We hope!) The Allstop products are a total RIP OFF! Simple cleaning enzymes in a fancy package. Lets see If I bought natures miracle at the feed store for $39.00 a gallon and put it in smaller bottles with a fancy label and sold it to you for $20.00 an ounce because your desperate.....Hmmmm.......inte resting profit margins there....you know capitalists have NO CONSCIENCE!

to Wolfgirl,thanks for the info ,I do hope scabies are what I'm dealing with and not something nastier, they also are on me everywhere,including living in my left ear ? been there 3 weeks ? maybe I have something else,all I know is I was diagnosed with scabies,given the perm cream ,got sick from using it so much, made them more resistent, so they gave me Ivermectin,will be putting my 4 cats on Revolution in 2 weeks, I will do another dose of Ivermectin at that time, I am 64 so I have to be careful, on a regimen of Immune system builders and appetite builers plus natural Antibiotics, so we'll see ordered enzyme cleaners also, soaking in 4 cups vinegar and 23 oz. of sea salt in bath ,it helps ,thanks Wolfgirl

Lil B,
Of the three Dr's. I have been to re scabies, my latest, a dermatologist, was the most knowledgeable. She told me to treat my animals because the human scabies mite can live on an animal for several weeks. From what I understand they cannot reproduce on your dog or cat, but they can survive and jump back onto you. So under normal circumstances you will not contract scabies from an animal. But if you have a scabies infestation in your house your animals can act as fomites. One of my cats slept in my bed regularly; after I got scabies every time I picked her up I would get new bites on my arms. I think this is only a problem if the surrounding humans have scabies; I have been rescuing strays and injured animals for many years, including wildlife rehab, and have never had a problem other than fleas and a few bird mite bites.

From my experience, the dog scabies can live and breed on humans and cats. We all have it here at my home. It seems to be worse on my dog and cat, as they cannot wash themselves, they have to depend totally on me for their care. I, on the other hand, can go to the sink, rinse my hands and arms, wipe down my legs and floor and do a number of things that the pets cannot do for themselves. My cat hates to be bathed, so what I do is just bath her with a warm wet wash cloth in the bathroom with a little bit of cat shampoo on it and the floor gets all wet, but that's the best I can do, because she will fight me. I am washing my dog with the Sulfodene shampoo which also has a conditioner on it. They both get ivermectin orally about once every 10 days.

Joe,
Try adding diatomaceous earth in a shaker to your pet routine. I put some into an old spice shaker and put it onto my pets daily. Just shake it on and rub it in. They don't mind it at all (at least the dogs don't!) and it really wiped out the mites on them. I am just careful to keep it out of their eyes and faces. It really helps in combination with everything else.

I have been actively reading the forum for a couple weeks and I think I can post that I am tentatively cured.
I had scabies nearly 15 years ago, when my son brought them home from preschool. It took about 2 or 3 months for the doctor to dx him, after telling us it was an allergy, prickly heat, etc. Only after all 3 of us had it, and my son had a secondary staph infection did the doctor say scabies. At that time, we used kwell I believe, which I think was Lindane, and we cleared up easily. I do not think I did much as far as laundering except washing what we wore already and vacuuming and washing our sheets. We were fine quickly. In fact probably a week or so.
This time I started itching on my arms on a really hot day when it was about 90 degrees at my sons track meet. I noticed some bumps, but I am an active outdoor person and I was not concerned. After a few days I felt the prickling in the shower and later the bumps were on the top of my hand, my chest, my back, and my butt. By about 6 days, I was really itching and my legs were involved too. I went to urgent care and told the doctor I thought it was scabies and he took a look and agreed, no scraping and no problem giving me a script for 4 tubes of permethrin. My boyfriend got 2 from his doctor as well and we all treated (my son, my b/f and I) I was the only one itching though.
SOOOOOOOO, of course I overapplied the perm, did it pretty much daily and mixed it in with my regular lotion too. Spot treated new bumps (really did not notice that to help at all). Laundered sheets nightly, although I got sick of doing the comforters every day, so I guess it did not matter that I was doing the sheets!!!! I wore all clothing items 1 time only washing in hot with borax and also drying for an hour. Bagged all the other clothes. But I did nothing to my car, my shoes, my multitude of handbags, etc. Cleaned the bathroom, boraxed the carpet (but not very well), sprayed permethrin spray on the mattress and under it. Treated the dog for mange. Etc.
I was still itching pretty badly for a week and a half. But bumps were going down and bathes getting more comfortable. I added neem to my bath and epsom salt and once I put in borax too.(was going a bit nuts then). I took sulphur pills and garlic too.
Nights were never bad for me, always slept, I noticed some itching subconciously, but not enough to be disturbing. I took benedryl and used hydocortisone, but felt little relief. My chest and torso are clear and itch free, but hands, arms and legs still bother a bit. I am using Eucerin now and nothing else. I am taking Zyrtec since yesterday on my doctor's advice. If in a week I still want to go to a derm, he will refer me.
I started to think maybe it was birdmites or bedbugs, but I had only really 2 very visible red bumps, the rest was more of a blotchy "under rash", and he said that the bites are bigger with the others and with my vision ( I am occasionally called upon to do nit-picking when we have had lice at my work, I am a teacher) I could see bedbugs if I had them, and I tend to agree. I live on the third floor of an apartment building and no nests nearby any windows or balcony.(I checked everywhere.)
No other children in our school had it (there are only 34, and I checked them all and spoke to every parent. 2 with suspect bumps did not have it.) No other staff did either. I have no idea where I got it if I did have it.
I did take ampicillin for a tooth ache about a week before the itching started. I was told I could still be reacting 3 weeks later, but I do not know. because I have super close contact with my students (I actually rub them at nap time and hold them all day long, it is preschool) I believe someone else would have had it too. Or that my boyfriend who has slept with me in the same bed for the last 15 years would have it as well. Who knows!!
But I am definitely way less bumpy and way less itchy.
