An Herbalist that I am aquainted with related this cure to me upon my inquiry a while back...For NIGHTLY baths, put 25 drops of Pennyroyal in warm bath. Soak for 20 minutes or so. Take one Goldenseal, one Garlic, one Turmeric, and one Neem capsule EVERY NIGHT after a meal until mites are gone. He said the total time it takes for a cure varies from person to person; but, he has seen this regimen cure Scabies throughout his lifetime without a single failure. He warned to NEVER INGEST PENNYROYAL under any circumsances! It is DEADLY WHEN INGESTED on its pure form, although a little in the mouth when mixed in a bath is HARMLESS. I hesitated to post this very reliable cure because one tablespoon of pure Pennyroyal ingested can be fatal-just the same as a strong pesticide-but, the Pennyroyal baths are perfectly SAFE, and very effective against Scabies mites. He said that the four herb capsules when combined have cured many ALONE. It takes six to twelve weeks for the total cure, but you will notice a HUGE improvement within the first week! Try it!

lifeslost-The permethrin works for most, but in rare cases it will only kill the mites off slowly. Even in these cases, the permethrin along with a nightly bleach bath will work over time.-I promise you this lifelost. Did you know that many people will have itching and red bumps for a YEAR after they are cured? Some do and some do not. The only way to be certain whether you really still have live mites or not is to look for BURROWS. The itching and red bumps after having Scabies is just normal for a very long time for some. Also, having Scabies can cause many to suddenly become allergic to dust mites which will cause crawling sensations, rashes, itching, many symptoms that are exactly the same as Scabies symptoms. Citirizine 10 mg. daily will control these allergies to dust mites. If you do not have any visible BURROWS after all of this time, could you maybe just be having a very long and drawn-out post Scabies condition? This can happen to some people. Have you considered trying the one cup chlorine bleach baths and an over-the-counter allergy medicine? Best Wishes lifesnotlostyet:)

pleaspleaseplease stop the bleach baths. I have had scabies for 3 yes 3 years and only over the past 3 weeks have found a cure that has almost completely cured me. For the first 2 years i didnt even realise i had scabies, then since march 2010 i have tried every chemical option (round after round of pemethrin, bleach baths, vile chemical cleansers as spot treatment - all the time treating my environment but no relief) In october i decided to go natural before i killed myself and went insane from cleaning. I started on tea tree daily in baths and with lotion which cut the proliferation right back - made a HUGe difference, as did Cayenne pepper baths, epsom salt baths and baking powder but still scratching all over on a daily basis. 3 weeks ago i bought neem oil, neem shampoo and cream and use these daily. i use oil in my bath, i shampoo my hair daily and i am always cov ered in normal body cream with about 20 drops of neem in a handful of lotion. For the past 7 days it has finally reduced to a few patches which I spot treat but I would say I am 90% cured. I still never ever use towels more than once, or wear the same clothes twice. I change bedlinen every 1-2 days (have done for the past year) and use antibacterial spray in bathroom and kitchen on all surfaces. I haven;t got a bed cover but may do just to make sure but I intend to carry on using neem for a good few months more. the neem stops the mites from producing so it takes time but believe me after 3 years of itching and a year of intense attempts to eradicate this whilst living my life too - a month is worth it. please dont use chemicals, they just don't work and any relief really is only going to be shortlived. the only relief I have every found is through natural products and dont think it will be an overnight cure, it takes stamina to beat this but you can :) K

Sounds like a POSSIBLE reinfestation problem. Are all in the household treating on the same nights? Have you been able to do the vacuuming, laundry etc. daily? I KNOW how very HARD it is. Try this...after the babies bleach bath, apply Vaseline petroleum jelly mixed with Neem oil from head to toe...give her Zyrtec for symptoms. The Vaseline will suffocate the mites, and the Neem oil will help to keep them from biting in the process. Do this for 10 nights in a row. ALL in household must treat with the baths; and, beds, couches, blankets etc. must be washed or vacuumed ALOT!! Try the four herbs mentioned above for all except the baby, along with the baths. Vacuum alot,(vacuum couch and chairs too and then throw away the bag and filters, and then jump into a bleach bath!). Put three caps of bleach in the RINSE water when doing dishes daily, soon you will see that you no longer have Scabies on hands and wrists- and keep working on environment daily as often as you can hold-up". I know you must be COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED S.S. Someone here said that regular ALCOHOL diluted with half water will kill mites on couches, mattresses, chairs, and carpet. Spray furniture and carpet with the half alcohol half water mixture BEFORE you vacuum-and always do chores BEFORE a bleach bath. Poor Mommy...don't give up, and try to eat right. Best Wishes S.S. jeannie

Just wanted to add here that there are those who have been cured with the Vaseline mixed with Neem oil treatment used for as long as it takes. Mix nine tablespoons of Vaseline with one tablespoon of pure Neem oil-this is a 10% Neem mixture. Taking a bleach bath before head to toe application of mixture is a VERY viable cure. Also, taking the Neem leaf and Turmeric internally is much help.

CORRECTION S.S.! The Vaseline and Neem 10% should be applied nightly after a bleach bath for at least 15 days to ensure all eggs have hatched-out after the first two nights suffocate all of the females. Most beleive that all eggs will hatch out within 10 days of the female mites deaths; but some beleive it can take 14 days (to be sure). Environment is crucial during this time.

S.S.-I was thinking about your situation...if you cannot afford the Neem oil right now, apply the PLAIN Vaseline head-to-toe on the baby after bleach baths, and it WILL still suffocate the mites. Buy the inexpensive generic brand of Citirizine 10 mg. for her itching, and give her this at night. Ask the pharmacist for the least expensive generic brand of Citirizine 10 mg. So, let's see...Shopping List: Clorox, lots of Alcohol, Vaseline, and Borax. Not too expensive, and yet very effective! These items and hot water are all you need to cure Scabies.-not to mention the elbow grease.

Thx for your reply. The crazy cleaning has become a normal daily routine here. I vacuum everyday and sweep/mop everyday for a year it is too much :( I stopped washing our sheets everyday and now every 3 days because its winter and I just can't do the big blankets everyday. I personally don't have scabies on my hands right now. That last bit of perm from Amy seems to have cured mine for now at least. It is my son and my baby who still got them. Even so it's not widespread all over just her legs and neck and his arms. We have all

Oops cut myself off... We have all been doing the same bleach baths every night. I use pine sol on my skin I mixed it with lotion I know it's toxic but I have zero bites right now. I will hopefully be able to buy some more neem the last time I bought it last year it didn't help much but that was the oil.

-it is the Vaseline that kills the mites; the Neem oil is more of a repellent and for skin health. If Neem lotion is worn every day FOREVER, it will eventually get rid of Scabies.-it interferes with the molting and reproduction.just my understanding of it is all. Good Luck.

I have almost eradicated this with Neem products (and an intensice cleaning regime) I have 2 young children also and did not want them to be exposed to chemicals so used neem and tea tree on them, they have cleared up 100 percent. Bleach baths kept symptoms at bay but never worked deeper than that - neem has worked in just under 3 weeks the only problem comes when I touch something and feel a bite from my environment and yes, it is pointless doing any of this unless everyone is being treated daily (bedlinen changed daily is also key) my children are 1 and 2 so I know how draining and distressing this can be.. I've tried evrything and only neem has worked for us

Sorry one more thing. I found with my children that they liked to live in their hair / scalp and it made a massice difference when I started to treat their heads daily too. I washed with neem shampoo (or regular shampoo with neem oil) and left on for ten minutes or so, then made sure I rubbed neem oil/lotion all over their bodies at night but especially around the neck and shoulders as the mites seemed to run from the scalp after the shampoo and I would see a few tiny welts after bathtime (on me also) so it's useful to treat head and body at the same time for this reason. I had on my scalp and face too for a while but doing this all at once cleared it away eventually. Sorry to post here like a craxy woman but I've been reading these forumes too for advice over the past year and after finding something that works for me and my family, I hope I can help others. Ss I think the key is to do everything and not just one treatment, have patience (it may seeme endless but they will not leave your life unless you stick with it) and try not to go down the chemical route, not only for toxic reasons but first-hand it just does not work.

I hopeless mom like this wow...I am still dealing with this on my own and it is a pain in the A$&! In my country the first líne treatment is ivermectin, it is sold in a package of 12 pills of 6gr. And no one needs prescription. And permethrin is also available with no prescription. When I took my first iver doses I had a family coming out of my skin was so disgusting. I think iver just kills quicker, and even if one re infest one self you do it for a month every 6 days and you are pretty much covered. My parents sent to me the pills bc here in America it is so difficult, it is crazy. Still I do think baths help a lot and neem too.
I am planning on taking neem and garlic pills forever. And apply neem lotions forever bc I don't want to catch this again. Btw I got it from some hotel or plane. I can assure it wasn't sexual transmission. It doesn't matter the way you got it. These things are from HELL. And it sucks especially for families. My heart is with you. God bless you with a cure. I am still working in it. Just one my first doses. And seeing progress.

I have been trying this regimen for a cure(herbalist cure)over 2 weeks now an i must say I have seen like 99% kill rate, plus no itching, I still clean daily and use clean sheets n clothes, some so I have gotten some nice relief!
But people that try this regimen really need to remember the "pennyroyal herb" is NOT to be taking orally, it can be dangerous to do that! I would NOT even use it as a topical, I have only used it 25 drops in bath tub an soak for 20 minutes or more an it will help alot.
I will post later if this regimen works 100% for me, good luck all.

I travel quite a bit and have had scabies on many occasions from hotel rooms or sheets that were not changed. Who knows? Here is what I have found is a quick and effective method. A VERY warm bath mixed with 2 cups of Borax 20 Mule laundry conditioner along with 1 cup of Hydrogen peroxide 3%. Soak all parts of your body for at least 10 minutes. Make sure you soak your face and hair too. They can get above the jaw line and into your hair. It's not the preferred place but you never know what your hair has been in contact with. When you are finished with the bath AIR DRY. You want to leave a residual dust on your skin. You will itch a little but it's simply the residue. Borax is poison to the scabies when consumed, melts the waxy layer on the eggs and it also cuts the exoskeleton of the critters so they dry up and die. Clean everything before the bath. Wash your clothes in hot water with the Borax. Make sure to dry on the high heat in your dryer for at least 30 minutes this does not include the cool down mode. Then when you are finished with the bath purchase a spray bottle and fill it with the bath water them heavily mist all of your furniture, mattresses and floors. Do this every day for at least 4 days just in case you do not get all of the eggs killed or you are reinfected in the house. Don't forget to do all of your car seats and floors too! The longest the mite can live without human contact is 72 hours. The eggs take 3 days to hatch. I say do the bath at least 4 days just to cover yourself. If you can't get Borax you can use Boric Acid from the drug store. You can purchase it online too. Good luck! These things SUCK!
