Does anybody really think these things can cure scabies or do they just think it's a treatment that helps? Anybody think any of these cured them? I know one poster used Manuka Oil and claimed it cured him quickly, but he only posted the one time and maybe even works for the place that sells Manuka Oil, because nobody else seems to know about it. I am feeling itchy again after a week. Damn it. Had a whole itch free week, now itching again.

I'm using neem and tea tree along with the regular med (permethrin). I don't think the neem or tea tree knock out the ones under the skin, but they may kill the ones on top.

(The ones under the skin lay eggs and live a month though, so do yourself a favor and buy the permethrin...)

The trick is to keep some sort of topical on the skin at all times between using traditional treatments. Anything that repels mites or slows them down from digging moulting pouches or burrows and roaming.

Also showers and shampoos are important to remove surface crawlers.

Traditional topical scabicides or systemic treatments have to be used too, there is no way around that.

with the tea tree oil method do you just rub it on after shower, or put in bath water and soak in it???

Yes, I know they work. It cured my son once. It kills them under the skin too. I prefer peppermint with emzyims though. I tried all the others like neem, tea tea tree oil, and other one I can't think of. Peppermint is the last one and I love it because it doesn't smell bad, doesn't have bad side effects like the others can have on you. I've been cured of Scabies using them but they crawl back on you once you get them off, the trick is to keep spraying and rubbing the stuff on you. Walk about spraying everything and yourself. Wear loose clothes so you can reach inside and wipe or squirt.

adanaturkey8385; if you're being careful and washing your bedding properly, you shouldn't get reinfested.

It's far more likely that you've still go them under your skin. The oils will kill many on top of your skin (and maybe some under)- this will make you feel better, but egg-layers and eggs will still remain and they'll show back up in several days when they hatch and grow.

The ones in your house would only live 3-5 days even if you weren't cleaning properly, and you'd need to get both a male and a female to hop on you and mate.

scabiesvictim, If people only had Scabies 3-5 days, they wouldn't be on this board. The problem is keeping them away from you for 3-5 days but it's nearly impossible. I've had Scabies 3 times, the first time 1 1/2 yrs, 2nd time I had them 2 yrs and they came back worse after that I have them bad again. It use to be called the 7 yr itch you know.

Tea Tree Oil worked for me. It smelled so bad that after a week I switched to Scabies Killer. The enzyme spray and laundry additive took care of the environment problem. It took about a month for no more bumps to appear.

Tea Tree Oil does smell really bad. Next time try peppermint with emzymes. It works too. Since I've used it, this is the best it's been so far.

I have peppermint oil, but what are the enzymes? Where do I get them? Any enzymes or particular ones? Digestive enzymes, or topically applied? Can I get them over the counter?

Brad, since adanaturkey posted that she got scabies worse, sold her home and moved in with someone else.

Permethrin 5% prescription is the first thing to use. If that fails after several applications, people resort to other things to use. If you just got scabies perm might cure you quickly and safely, as it has for many people, just not all people.

Hahaha adanaturkey8385 is hardcore! She's just prayin' and sprayin' everywhere she goes! I'm not sure if I had scabies or not (didn't go to the doctor) but I had really intense itching after getting out of the shower everyday and the skin on my knuckles started to look just like the skin on the hands of scabies victims in the pictures I saw on the internet. I bought the Manuka Oil (and a Manuka Soap for the shower) from a company called Harmonic Skin Tones on Amazon.com Either way my skin is starting to clear up. I haven't been itching when I get out of the shower, the redness between my knuckles is gone and it even clears up acne! The only downside is it smells pretty bad. It has a strong cedar type of smell. It's also pretty expensive (I paid $30.00 for the oil and the soap + 10.00 S/H - the soap is in a pretty large bottle for $15.00 but the 100% pure Manuka Oil seems outrageous at $15.00 for 1/3 oz bottle)! So at that price at least if it doesn't kill your scabies it will kill the bacteria on your skin and you'll have less acne! It even kills staphylococcus and streptococcus apparently!

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.
