Bleach bath are helping my family of 5, we did 8 treatments of the permethrin cream, it helped alittle. It did not cure so I started reading other forums, YES bleach baths HELP! I think we will be cured in a bit, No more crawling feelings, only a bit every couple of days, but I have 3 boys and its imposable to clean everything they touch all day long. So I think it's going to take longer for my family to get rid of. Bleach may not be the best for your skin, BUT mites are worse! I just want to help everybody, I hate this! We have been bathing every other day in 1 to 1 1/2 cups bleach for a week, we are doing another week or so. One woman on another site said she put bleach 1 part 3 parts water into a spray bottle and sparyed her self, she said it worked too! PLEASE TRY IT! I'm praying for all!

Hi there, I live in Monterey Park. I'm pretty sure I have scabies, I had them 2 years ago. I bought the Premethrin Cream but want to use it as a last resort. I've started to bathe for 30 mins with borax and epsom salt.

I don't get why it's so hard to get rid of scabies. from ebay I also use Neem Oil, I bought a 12 oz bottle for around $10 and I use it while I sleep. I bought sulfur soap from Herbs of Mexico, and I'm sure that helps too. I have aloe vera plants outside and I cut some off and peel off the skin, and rub the juice all over. Aloe vera is a natural 'cure' too. Just trying everything that I can.

This seems to be such a hopeless thing to catch I've done everything rubbed strait neem oil and nothing washed everything nothing seems to work there's no harm in trying my problem is I've spent so much money on this I can barely keep afloat it seems much like something that hasn't had enough time and research by doctors they're trying to cure things like cancer and can't Evan come up with the best solution you have to figure it out yourself and off these sites where people always tells you what helps

i had scabies before in December. I used the Permitherin cream, didn't work. They gave me steroids and they went away. I have them again, as well as my 8 month old son. I'm taking him to a dermatologist and maybe he can give us something to cure these stupid little things!

anp, did you really cure scabies with steroids? Are you sure that it was scabies? Maybe the Permethrin did work, but you had the post-scabies itch afterwards (which can feel like scabies), and the steroids then made that better. I wish it was simply a case of taking some steroids to get rid of these...

I'm only gonna say this once, so listen up...


Bathe in.



I have vitreous eye floaters from taking bleach baths. They use bleach to clean animal skulls for display. Use something that actually works, like Benzyl Benzonate.

How long does it take to get rid of scabies with bleach?

I have suffered from scabies since last year and have taken the plunge into bleach baths and washing in lice shampoo (it has permethrin in it) once a week. I've never managed to wash my hair in bleach because I fear the damage it will cause to my ethnic hair. I do have them on my scalp and have put some lice shampoo into a bottle of lotion and wear some once a week. I also spray my room down with diluted boric acid. I keep getting reinfested but the numbers that get on my skin have dwindled since taking the bleach baths since 2 weeks ago. I also wash all my laundry once a week with a bit of boric acid too. How long will it take to be over?

I'm amazed. Years and years of this and no one has come up with a solution that works. I have done the cream three times and I cannot believe I took a bleach bath tonight. It is crazy - I'm bathing in poison to kill these things. All because my mother refused to admit she had mites or scabies and happily put me and my baby son in an infested room. Wish I could just move rooms and pretend I don't have a problem too, but I have a child to treat and bleach baths are not an option for him.
