When my kids came to visit, after they left, one of them discovered she had scabies... she convinced me that she was not infected when they came here, therefore I was being "overly paranoid", But---when spots began to appear.. I stupidly waited, thinking she was right, then found on several web sites that they can live on someone for up to a month, before they are causing them any symptoms--or worse, some people can be scabies carriers, without any symptoms! My waiting to treat, was a huge mistake, and by the time two weeks rolled by, they had spread everywhere!(and multiplied, exponentially!) so, if you suspect it--immediately do a skin scraping! Then, I tried several doses of both Ivermectin, permethryn creams, etc... none of which worked! Now I am treating with sulfur soaps, sulfur creams, the baths with Borax, hydrogen peroxide, and tea tree oil, then clean the heck out of my clothing, on hot, with a cup of borax in each load... sterile mattress pad plus sterile sheets, every night, and blankets dried in the dryer on hot for twenty minutes... so I am finally getting some relief! However, you must treat your dog, at the same timing.. just as I used in my twice daily baths..I used borax (1 cup), plus the hydrogen peroxide (1 cup), a few drops of tea tree oil, poured into a regular bucket full of hot water, plus some puppy shampoo. My dog weighs 147 pounds... I poured it all over his fur, then allowed it to sit for ten minutes, then retrieved the Retriever... and rinsed him off, then blow -dried his fur... he was standing next to a white sheet (over my plastic-covered couch)--and around 100 or so, dark small specks of mites, jumped off his skin, dead on contact! I plan on inspecting his skin regularly for mites... mine are going away,I now do not allow him on my bed, or in my bedroom, and I wash his dog blankets every day. there is a natural spray I found for dogs, that has clove oil, tea tree oil, lemon grass, etc... at the regular Pet supply stores... he hated it, but it seems to keep them off! Now, I have to treat his ears for mites ! There are also homeopathic oils with clove oils for ear mites, as well. Make sure to follow the vet.'s instructions... no need to use poisons, sprays or toxic flea powders--make sure to vacume, and wash all linens, including your dog's bedding, daily --with a cup of borax and hot water, then dry over twenty minutes on highest heat! I am finally "winning"!(no relative of Charlie) Bonnie

Sounds like you're doing a lot of the stuff i did that in the end never worked. I finally got cured after a year with homeopathy and all the information is on the thread "99% sarcoptic scabiei cure,the fox project"

Wow, FRED, you are RELENTLESS at trying to get everyone to try your homeopathic scam treatment.

Its one thing to come on these threads and let everyone know why you have tried, what worked, what didn't - its another to constantly seek out each and every poster that has had failed treatments in an attempt to brainwash them into some scientifically flawed regimine which requires purchase of scabified water (PS - I don't know of ANYONE that has had any instant success with any scabies treatment)

And you are relentless on trying to bad mouth it without any knowledge of it. The things you post about it are complete misinformation. You don't know anything about it you just make it up as you go along . Why should you care? Will it effect how people perceive you? Homeopathy works.

I tried just about everything on this forum and wasn't cured until homeopathy. A scam is someone who is trying to make money and there are tons of different sources for homeopathic treatment , I personally don't care where people get it. I'm just saying to people that this is a way out of this hell.

That's right no one has instant success , you keep injecting things as argument points that have no bearing in reality. Homeopathy takes at the very least a month. All the information is on the "99% sarcoptic scabiei cure, the fox project" thread.

After having this for a year it cured me. Itchy scratchy you're not cured, right?

I am having mixed feeling about this "herb treatment" it seems to help like oh 99% but can not say it is a cure, I still notice red patches on a few areas, I wonder if i am really killing the mites/eggs in my environment?
I do not have bites or crawling or even break outs, yet not 100% satisfied they are actually gone?
So i have to question if this herb cure really works these days? Just saying from my experience on this?

Anything done from the outside in just drives them deeper, especially stuff that works "over time" The cure has to be whole body, systemic and work from the inside out. There is no scientific evidence to support that neem has any action against mites . I was eating 30 cloves of garlic a day for 3 weeks, yuk, and that still didn't get rid of them.

Where is the scientific evidence to support that Homeopathy works on scabies?

PS - I agree, Neem is no cure for scabies

So whats your cure again Itchy scratchy?

Well I have to disagree with the neem NOT working, it has helped me like 90%, have used it externally as well as internally, only reason I choose to stop usage I do not want to ingest it any longer, I feel I have gave it enough time it should have killed them off, but i have to keep in mind I have been battling these in my body since oct/11, so I have had a long term mite in me.

It is obvious no doc an such know how to eradicate these mites so people have to figure the cure on their own, not a dang thing wrong with that!!!!

You can not apply the traditional paradigm to assess Homeopathy. You have to use a different ruler and the fact that it does work needs to be considered without bias. Under chemical analysis you'll find nothing because homeopathy works with minute atomic energy.

I tried everything that was supposed to work, it's a very long list, none of it worked. Sure it kept them at bay sometimes but that's not much of a prize. After a year I was running out of things to try and decided to start over from the begining. I caught canine scabies from my dog who caught it from a fox's den
so Just to see what would come up I googled mange and fox and found the U.K. sites where they are curing the foxes of mange with homeopathic remedies.

http://www.foxproject.org.uk/fox-facts/sarcop...

http://www.nfws.org.uk/mange/Sarcoptic%20Mang...

That's when I started reading about homeopathy. You can ask yourself where you will be in this process in say 6 weeks, maybe the only thing you will have accomplished in your cure is a bunch of posts on the scabies forum. After a year of having this condition Homeopathy finally cured me.

Ftb;
I went to 2 regular docs and 2 derms, the 2 docs gave me perm and Iver but it didn't work and the 2 derms tried to prescribe me ORAP even when I had visible lesions and bites! Sometimes you just have to do it yourself.

I started yesterday w regime. Showering w sulfur sea salt soap and tea tree oil on skin. Don't want to do baths anymore tired of it. Have no burrows for like a month or more. Just bites. Crawling and pinpricks still there but not as bad as last month. But they are not getting better now. Just the same. Note I did my last permethrin and iver on Sunday 10th so just now I have stopped treatment for about 14 days. Still freaky the crawling and pinprick followed by me scratching myself little bit. I will try this herbalist regime plus Sulfer sea salt soap ( very good soap) and tea tree oil at nights. I am so sick of this. Have been battling it for 3 months but I am sure I had it for another 3 without knowing what I had. Good luck everyone.
Will stop also anti itch and histamine to see what is going on. Keep you posted.

Attention everyone there is a sure-fire cure for this terrible plague!!!!!!!!!!

Forget the bleach baths, tree oil, and any of the other stuff that doesn't work either, forget the expensive prescription only permethrin that barely works also.

The cure is Cayenne pepper that's right you heard it here, I bare witness it works, it's not for the light hearted but this cheap inexpensive herb you can get at your local grocery kills these buggers quickly and relieves any symptoms.

Here's what you need: vaseline, finely ground cayenne pepper.

Here's what I did: I put a very fine coating of vaseline on my fingers or palm of my hand and I took the bottle of cayenne pepper and poured some over the vaseline in my hand and then simply rub the pepper on my skin which was itching and infected, eventually I applied this coating over my chest, stomach, back, legs, wherever my finger could reach, after a while the pepper will begin to dissolve into your skin and it will burn like crazy... but as it's burning you it's also burning the mites and killing them.

Eventually the burn will subside and you will probably begin to itch again, simply repeat this cycle or apply it wherever you feel you need relief, ultimately you will have a nice residue of pepper on your skin, here's is what's gonna be the final nail in the coffin for the Scabies... Eventually you take a hot shower as much as you can bare, which may not be much with the pepper residue over your skin, but the shower will allow the water with the pepper residue to seep through your pores all over you body and once you get out the shower and dry off your body will be a flaming.. But know this afterwards; scabies as you know it will no longer exist they will for the most part be all fried & dead and you can start eating a healthy diet of veggies, fruits, herbs such as raw garlic, a drink of water mixed with cayenne pepper will along with eating garlic and other herbs will internally make your body repellant to these bugs and they will want to flee from you as quick as possible.

I've tried pure Clove oil. I've done it directly on my skin, in a bath and mixed with Grapeseed Oil... I'm telling you, the stuff burns like acid!!!! I wonder in the Cayenne burns less than the clove oil? I swear I thought my skin was coming off!! Anybody tried both methods? Did either one work better or do they both cause a intolerable amount of pain???

Rubbing a little salt on the burrows mixed in some lotion does wonders. I had burrows on my neck. I started using salt on those areas. Its clearing right up. I also did the bleach baths. It does work. Soaking in regular tablesalt does also. Now I'm using the neem oil to stop the reproduction. I have not seen any new burrows since starting the salt baths.

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!
Did the pennyroyal work?

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.
no...they dont need oxygen so they wont suffocate. they live in the skin.?
