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.
do you mean the food grade kind? I will try it on the dog, but what about the cat? cats lick themselves to clean themselves. won't it make her sick?

itchy girl from OH, i'm so glad you confirmed what i've been saying to EVERYONE who would listen. my son got scapies while away in s. america. once diagnosed,(after 2 weeks of our thinking bad mosquito bites) he got treated with lindane, but 6 weeks later we're still battling the infestation. I've been saying to my pediatrician, my dermatologist, and my vet, that the DOG is who's carrying the HUMAN mites, and no one believes me!!!! finally, i asked the vet to give us treatment for the dog anyway, so we're starting that tomorrow, and my son and i are going to a hotel for 4 days so the mites would leave our home, and hopefully this would be the answer. i'll check in to this site in a couple weeks with an update/report as to our success.

I found that I had to use the Ivermectin I bought at the Feed Store and put in capsules according to the right dose for your weight. I use that coupled with benzyl benzoate which I bought online. I spot the benzyl on me and would advise that the scabies do go on the neck and head behind the ears. Best of luck and hang in there.

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

My sons and I had it so bad,our skinned looked like leather in some places.
We used the perm twice,wasn't a cure but it helped.
I started reading these boards and started trying different things.
what worked for us was this,shower with neem soap,apply epson salt lotion I made myself after hot shower and took the neem pills daily.
Vacumed house and washed bedding every day with two hour drying time.We have been mite free for weeks,but will continue with the neem soap and pills for a long time to come.
Read up on the neem it's a all natural isecticde.
Thank you to the mitey warrior for the neem recommendation,it works.Good luck to every one!

I just got a puppy three weeks ago and i took him to the vet the day after. He got a wellness check and skin scraping, and sure enough the vet said "he has this little mites" and "be careful you can get it". But that's about it, i didn't thought it was going to be as horrible as what i have right now. I have plenty of tiny blisters all over my palms and hands. I also have bites on my arms, legs, a little bit on my feet. I believe I got it a week after I got my puppy. The vet gave me a shampoo for my dog but its not doing anything for him. As for me, I've been fighting the itch my using benadryl anti itch cream, but its really not helping. I also thought this 'itch' is gonna go away, but its not, and its just getting worst..the weird thing is that my husband does not have it.
And I am about to go to the doctor. I don't have insurance so I don't know how much this is going to cost me... PLEASE HELP!! I'm getting A LOT of different information on this.. and its very confusing.

I had scabies in the early 90's because my daughter's babysister daughter passed them onto my daughter. It took 4 months for the drs to diagnose scabies even though I told them the babysister said scabies. It was a nightmare and I have a mental breakdown every time I get an itch.
This time, my neighbor left her 12 week old puppy and his mother outside in the rain to attend to a family emergency out of town. I brought the animals into my home and two days later started to feel itchy. I tried getting a mite killer over the counter but nothing for humans. So I decided to wash my itchy body with dog shampoo. The stupidest thing I have ever done. Now I am head to toe stratching with a hive type rash that makes me want to take my skin off and get a new one. I knew scabies and the thought of scabies would drive me mad and it has.
Can't afford the doctors so I suffer in silence.
Feeling like the dullest tool in the shed.

Keep reading this forum. All the answers are here. Look for posts on ivermectin, permethrin, benzyl benzoate, borax, hydrogen peroxide, arm and hammer powdered laundry detergent, epsom salts, cleaning and laundry. Good luck to you.

Oh, and keep a daily log of your progress, what is working and what is not working. also search for sublimed sulfur, and sulfur soap, too.

Just to let you know what's been working for me. I'm using horse paste externally. It seems to be the most mild thing to use on the skin, hopefully it will be mild enough for your irritated skin. I mix it with a bit of water - it seems to soak in a bit better. Also every 5 days, I take it internally. It's available from the online pet stores and there is express shipping. You need to be careful not to use too much. Be sure to use only the amount that is indicated for your weight, whether internally or externally. There are notches on the holder. Anyway, hope this helps. I can actually see mine disappearing and if you've only had it for a short while, you may be able to get rid of them quickly. Don't forget to get a vinyl cover for your bed and pillow.

Sorry, I didn't mention that it is horse paste ivermectin. It needs to have nothing else except ivermectin. I get apple flavoured!

The other best part about horse paste ivermectin, is that it is dirt cheap! Okay, I'll shut up now. Hope they're gone soon.

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 .
Please tell me more about how you got rid of them.

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!
My brothers dog has sarcoptic mange... has had it for as long as i can remember. My brother and nephew caught it from the dog... they have been infested for about 1 year now. I caught it from my nephew cause they didnt bother to tell me he was infested and he stayed in my home for two f'n months. My dogs caught it too and the vet did a scraping and found that it is sarcoptic mange... you are just trained to believe what is told to you in class. I am positive I caught my brothers dogs sarcoptic mange because that dog has had it forever... longer than before my brother caught it

I FOUND A SOLUTION to killing scabies. Take a hot hot bath with 2 lbs of sea salt for about. 20 min. Do not rinse!!!! You will notice little black specs floating in the tub. These will be the dead mites. Do this for 4 nights straight. Good luck!!!!

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.
