Has anyone had actual success using this product?
I've read a bit about it and was wondering if it actually ever worked for anyone?

Hi Tick-
U betcha, I've used it & it helps alot. I like it because it's 10% sulfur but I don't have to mix it. I've used it both full body & as a spot treat. Sulfur is a slow kill, so don't expect miracles overnight. You have to be diligent. I think the recommended protocol is 3 days on, 3 off, but I varied from that a bit.
Sulfur of any type is very drying, so be careful. Maybe test the pomada out before trying to apply alot of it? But in my opinion, it does kill a good amount of mites, acts as a great repellant, & is pretty good at drying up bumps. A few posters have claimed to cure from sulfur, which makes sense as it has been used for centuries.
Actually, I just recently became reinfested, I believe, it's not bad yet but definitely something is going on, I was in 'remission' for a while. A few weeks ago I got new bumps on my inner forearms that I spot treated once with permithrin, then used pomada until they were gone, which took maybe 2 weeks until you couldn't see any trace. This new reinfestation that just started a few days ago is a bit worse, I did a full body perm treatment yesterday, and today am spot treating the trouble areas with pomada. I was running late for work so I brought it with me to treat my wrists!(some say always treat hands & wrists even if no symptoms there, to help stop the spread of mites.)
Well, that's my 2 cents, hope it helps. Good luck in your battle- keep reading these boards for ideas.

Hi Tick- It's safe to use head to toe, I did that at night before bed & it helped me sleep because it really reduces the crawling sensations. Pomada is not toxic, so it won't hurt you, but it is very drying, and some people are allergic to sulfur. You really have to spot test it first. Also, remember that over treating with any of these methods can have a bad effect on your skin. I actually think I have a rash on my inner forearms from keeping them slathered in pomada all the time.
As far as 3 days off/on, I can only tell you that I read on another forum that it is full body, 24 hours, for 3 days, off for 3, back for 3. I don't think I cured with sulfur, but some people have. It is actually one of the oldest cures for scabies that there is. It is a slow kill, though. As for me, right now I am battling possible reinfestation after being about 95% clear for several weeks. Keep reading the forum, & good luck to you.

I made up some sulfer from Lymdyp the pet mange dip. Left over, not doing cat. The beauty of this method is that the sulfer is already liquid, so you don't have gritty stuff. Anyway, this stuff is 97% sulfer. It's pretty cheap, about $8 a bottle which makes countless batches. Anyway, the liquid state of the sulfer makes it easy to mix. And there is nothing better in my opinion than coconut oil to mix with because it is ultra moisturizing without feeling "humid". Coconut oil is solid at room temp, which also means your lotion has body and is very moisturizing actually, not drying and it doesn't seem to disappear too fast because this stuff is slick and spreads far before it penetrates, so it goes pretty far. To make, easy: Coconut oil,(remember it's a solid oil) becomes liquid quickly about thirty seconds in the Microwave or in a small pan.(DO NOT ADD THE SULFER DURING HEATING, FUMES!)(and no need to, the coconut oil only needs to be warm to be liquid and it will mix) Anyway, try melting about six tablespoons of Coconut oil then add a Tablespoon of Lymdyp. Or if you want l0% you can add more coconut oil. 8 and a half -1 is about 10% sulfer. Never heat sulfer as it can cause fumes. Stir your sulfer into the liquid coconut oil as it cools, like adding something to butter. It will need periodic mixing as it cools to blend it, it takes a good half hour to resolidify, but just stir well at the beginning and when you think of it as it solidifies. Oh, yeah, at the beginning, if you have a drop of an essential oil you like, orange or rose, add it. This stuff does stink. But surprisingly, it does not stain. Apply at bedtime, by morning you will smell normal even without the essential oil, but since I hate eggs I hate sulfer more than anybody, so I'm biased against this. Oh, yeah, this depends on night showering, so you can leave it on for 24 hour periods if you want to keep it on, maybe with your essential oil you can get away with it applying in the am. Reapply as neccesary. The rose oil kills a lot of the smell or orange oil, and it disappates after. I made my first batch without a scent in it and had to rub a drop of rose oil in my palms and over myself to counter the really objectionable smell. I use this as a spot treat and I also treat my hands and wrists, but I do not get dry from it, and I do think it kills the burrowers of a new bite.

Lymdyp also supposedly has a new scented kind, but mine was the old-fashioned non-scented kind.
I'm not sure if the scented kind really smells better or if it smells like bathroom freshener. It's just pure sulfer with some stuff to suspend it to keep it in a liquid state. It's a time honored pet remedy, around for years and is meant to be left on a pet, on them it's used weekly. It will burn if too strong. I tried a drop of it (97%) and it burned a spot on my arm that left a burn like a cigarette burn.(I thought I'd test it out on a bad bump, but anyway, the odd thing is that it didn't hurt like a burn, but it looks awful later and I'm glad it was on my upper arm, so don't get tempted to do what I did, it only took a minute to burn this much at full strength, I thought my pain sensors would alert me, not so, it's a pretty painless burn that looks awful). Just in case anybody else gets the same bright idea, I'll spare you! I seem to be able to tolerate a slightly higher dose of sulfer for the actual creme, maybe it's the coconut oil, but I suggest you also start with a 10% batch. Also, as a spot treat you can mix a tiny bit of Lymdyp with the right amount of water if you prefer to lotion, but that is drying.

since my real rash attack from the defleas, i went to derm and he gave me the steriods which helped but didnt cure as we kno what i have they dont.....so i used that for a bit but one nite i woke up itching to beat the band so i tried the pomada stuff still itchin so put iver paste for animals over that litely, and it was soooo much better in the morning, so i am sticking to it, i put the clove,coconut, anise mix on places where i have no bumps just for protection, then i put the pompada on bad spots and wait for like an hour and then put lite coat of iver paste over that. i got a gallon of the defleas CONCENTRATED, not the regular shampoo and i poured some in a bucket and added water and washed EVERYTHING DOWN,including car, then used the spray for the furniture and beds and carpets, computer keyboard, remote, i will do that weekly i think,, and do the epsom salt spray and borax for the carpet nitely. something is making me better not sure what but with that kind of arsenal something better kill em, i am still taking iver paste oral also,and washing with sulf/sal soap and blue head and shoulders, (i added a dash of the defleas shamppo concentrate but dont overdue it or you will have a rash like i did as i used it all over as a wash....not good, so we will see

Hi Crazy, I think DeFlea as an area spray is better if you don't add water, and a little bit on the fine mist covers a pretty good area, and won't add excess moisture which might benefit mites??? I also don't think that DeFlea is good for human skin, you can't leave it on for more than five minutes, and actually it stops working when it dries so it shouldn't stay on for longer, or used at all really it's a rinse off. I did break down and use it on my scalp shortly before shampooing at the worst and it helped, but I needed a lot of conditioner and I only left it in long enough to kill the surface mites about five minutes tops is all it takes. I tried a bit of DeFlea on my collarbone once and it dried my skin like crazy (not you, LOL, I mean like mad). It took days to moisten my collarbone skin again and I'm even oily usually.(I don't think DeFlea can get burrowers under the skin either, so I'm not wasting it on my skin and I concur with it's value as a skin treat is pretty damn drying. No wonder it dries up mites to death. There are better skin things for us humans, but it's still my favorite area spray, because it's non-toxic and it gives my couch a just cleaned look! I add a drop of essential oil to make it smell less like banana peels. A couple of drops of one or a few drops of vanilla helps. All those surfactants in DeFlea makes this stuff a great cleaner that needs no rinsing). I just wish DeFlea (as an area spray) had a residual, but it only kills what's there - not what's going to land there two days down the road, so reapply. It reboots an area for sure though, then just touch up. I also use it as a dusting spray on a lot of places on a kleenex that I can toss. I would use the Adams or the Zodiac pyrethoid spray for my place except for my cat, as cats are sensitive to pyrethrins and it's really toxic to them. At this point I don't really mind toxic, but my cat sleeps on the couch and carpet so I'm more thinking of her, as cats are really not supposed to be around Pyrethoids. Anyway, I'm so glad that you're feeling better.

didnt realize that i have been using this for so long....havent had new bumps since my last post above. still itch some especially around my neck and hair line, but still using the pompada de stuff not straight anymore, did for like 2 weeks, but now added to ocean pacific after sun lotion (it has tea tree, comfrey, clove, coconut and all kinds of natural good stuff) i made some strong (i also add some sulfa powder) and use it nitely, for like 3 nites and then i made a weaker kind for face and for morning. as this is harsh on the skin and you will peel badly. when i start peeling i use the weeker for a day or so. i also use sulfa soap and have added the sulfa powder to my shampoo and condiotioners. i use the apricot scrub every other nite or so to peel the dry skin off, and the new skin is bump free. i still have the scars and they are peeling also. i am afraid to quit treating as the paranoid feelings are there. i also do the epsom salt spray and defleas also for the carpet and floors and car and stuff. hope all is well with everyone.

I wanted to find out if the people who posted above are now rid of it. I have been dealing with scabies on and off for 8 months! I have been super diligent about cleaning and cleaning sheets nightly or every othernight and finally have just resolved to using sulfur b/c permethrin failed so many times. Also, a year before this, my daughter brought home scabies (daycare is the only thing I could think of) and it took less than one month to get rid of it, using permethrin and olive oil-I know. So this time, I feel like the succers grew titanium armor or my daughter is getting recontaminated every time we get rid of it because where were several week lulls in the course of the past 8 months. The past 4 we've just been using neem oil which keeps the itchy factor down to minimum and makes it so the larvae can't survive. It works but it's not fool proof so we keep trying. Anyway, I would like to hear if any of you have actually completely rid yourself of scabies using sulfur. I just ordered 2 bottles of lymdip after reading this post. That's so brilliant because you can't get sulfur for humans over the counter anymore. Walgreens is now out of Pomada de Azulfre and I wonder if they'll restock.

I like the sulfer soap l0%. Get eight bars online. You soap up and leave the lather on for a good few minutes, don't rinse too fast. If your scalp is affected,wash with it too, and leave the lather there for several minutes. Then rinse and shampoo with your own gentle shampoo. It seems to really start working on about the second day. The soap is also a war of attrition, it can't get the burrowers, but I think it gets all the surface males for a good half a day to a full day. You can then apply your sulfer cream to all affected areas for a more effective treatment. If you can stand a full body treatment of the ointment, that would be, of course the ultimate, but the soap way, is pretty decent if you can't tolerate total body creams for long, which I just can't. I've gotten rid of these things several times and do love Perm, actually, but my cat was always hard to treat and reinfested me, because she was crusted, long before they started on me. Lymdyp worked the best on her, because she'd had them so long, years, that her case was specially bad and I don't think either Iver or Revolution made it into her nails where she had a lot of problems. I did notice her crusts, etc, but was told by a vet they were caused by spider bites, and while in my heart I didn't believe that, at least I was glad that they weren't something like kitty skin cancer. I never once connected her condition to a mangy dog we knew for several years because they never lived together or hung around. Cats can and do harbor canine mange mites, and get crusted, and in their nails if they have them long enough, but never get the profound hair loss as if they had their own mite, N. Cati, which is pretty rare. My cat is finally getting better, but it was tough.

P.S. If the Lymdyp is for you, be careful. It must be diluted before it ever touches you. It won't hurt, but will still leave a bad burn if an undiluted drop gets on you. I have still got a drop sized burn from trying it on a bump myself straight, and it left a scar like a cigarette burn. In about a minute. If the Lymdyp seperates from what you put it with, it is going to be able to burn you. Diluted with water it is fine. Diluted with Coconut oil, etc, make sure it stays mixed up, or mix before applying each time. P.P.S. Lymdyp stinks much more than Pomada D'Azufre or the Humco sulfer. The Humco sulfer doesn't stink at all. The Lymdyp is attrocious. But once it dries, like on a pet, the pet smells okay to me, it's just when it's liquid. When it dries the pet will smell like an unburned, dry match. But I've got to say, the Lymdyp Coconut is pretty dang good for an area spot treater, but mix if if it seperates, and be careful. The powder Humco is safer to mix and to keep mixed. The Lymdyp is much, much stronger than the Humco. Ten percent of the Lymdyp is going to be stronger than the Humco, so start with no more than that. P.P.S. Lymdyp mixed with the right amount of water is okay for any areas, or you could make a more dilute batch to try and work up. You could mix a water formula, apply, then add the grease after if you want a more foolproof way to apply it. I don't like the smell of it, but yeah, it does work. I went back to using it on my cat and it was the only thing that helped her. (My cat was a special case, with established long term mites of close to three years, and I doubt if anybody on this site except MK and Scabies 3 know how hard it is when your animals have this). Animals take a long time to get our mites, I believe, and we take a long time to get theirs. It is not an overnight process. At least it took a long time for me. And almost as long for me to get rid of them, once they decided they liked me. I think if you've had your mites for a while, then the pets can get them, but it won't be as established. In most cases, I think the Revolution for a pet would work, but in my cat's case, it was too late, and only Lymdyp worked with the Iver or Revolution. Sulfer is a miracle drug for cats who can't have Perm like dogs can.

P.S. You can't find Pomada Azufre, but you can find Humco Sulfer at most drugstores. You can mix it with Vasoline. It's probably more failsafe for a kid. I really do like the Lymdyp/Coconut oil, but for a little kid, I'd be extra careful and make sure it stays mixed up. Be sure to try it on yourself first to see how you like it/ and remember a weaker batch should do fine for a soft skined kid. I believe the kid's formula is more like five percent sulfer! Err on the side of caution. Remember you can always add more sulfer later if you tolerate it well. A kid does not need that much strong sulfer. Anyway, you can try the sulfer soap 10% that you find online and see how you like it. YOu can add the area sulfer ointment when you dry off to the affected areas. This method seemed effective to me, but with cat, it has been a long battle. I think I'm cured now, perm did work fine on me, it's just that my cat had them in her nails and feet and nothing worked on her but the sulfer, and I went back to using the Lymdyp on her, and discontinuing it on me. I just use the soap now.

Welty. These posts are so helpful. I like that you have mixed the lymdip with Coconut oil and used it on your body. This has not been mentioned much on these forums. You put some good ideas out there and are very thorough in your explanations. I'm glad you came back to post. Cats are hard to treat and the lymp dip is a good alternative to just Revolution and/or ivermectin. People should follow the directions on the bottle for the pets and not make the mixture too strong, as the pet will get sick if you do.

I thought originally that it could be my cat but all the doctors I spoke to swear that animal mange does not take hold on humans. And my cat doesn't seem at all mangy. Well, since I have the lymdip, I might as well treat her. I did that last time. I used a 2% sulfur wash on her. Maybe that's why it went away so fast last time. Curious.

yes, the doctors will tell you that the mites that effect pets will not effect humans. NOT!!! They do. And they will STAY on you, too. You can speak with all the doctors you want, but, the truth is, these mites have evolved and will survive on any warm blooded animal they can. Just watch your cat for scratching, head shaking, and scaby sores, scratching of the ears, licking the paws, etc.

When I had scabies it was the most horrible thing , I felt uncomfortable around everyone and thought it would never end,there is a quick way to end your breakout safely. Permethrin does not work folks if you have had scabies for a couple weeks and it is dangerous.

Tick, Welty and anyone else who is interested, this is how it happened. I posted in January as atwitsend. It took about 2 months. I tried to use lymdip, I really tried but the smell was horrifying. I checked Walgreens.com again and they restocked on Pomada de Azulfre. My roomie who is from the south said lye soup will kill anything and so here is the regimen.
Do laundry, linens and all your used clothes every day or every other day. Limit your clothes to one to three drawers. Limit your use of furniture to chairs and bed. Wear long sleeves and long pants and socks all the time, day and night so you don't have to mop daily. Mop regularly.
Shower with lye soap morning and night. Use the sulfur ointment Pomada de Azulfre all over at least once a week or if possible a few days in a row. Then spot treat anywhere you feel twinginess or itchiness right before bed. Make sure you treat a big area for every twinge but I read they can only move like 2.5 centimeters per hour! So you can spot treat if you train your mind to feel the twingy areas. It will often feel like they are moving fast, like a breeze across your skin but that is just your itch senses reacting to a very small motion.
I promise you, 2 months is what it took me, less actually. Keep those socks on! And good luck to everyone!

After 3 visits to the doctor and approx.$2000 out of pocket expenditures on this ailment, I am revisiting this site in hopes of getting rid of these things. I have been infested for almost one year. I have been lulled into a false sense of security for a short time and then the itching and bites start all over again. I wash so often and so long I am shocked I still have skin! In addition to the sulfur cream, I have also been using Sulfur 8 hairdressing and shampoo -- all over. Both can be found in the ethnic haircare section of almost any store (Walmart / Kmart). They have 2% sulfur. I have also been washing with natural bristle hairbrushes in hopes the bristles will penetrate my skin better than cloths or loofahs. Thanks to all who have written in.
