Hey guys, I've been dealing with scabies for a few months, I think, and due to massive depression and lack of options, I ordered Ivermectin from some horse feed site.

Today is two weeks from the first day I took it and I've been EXTREMELY aggressive.. took it on days 1,2,3,5,6,8,9,12,15.

The itching seems to be different now, but it still there, but not nearly as bad. I just took Ivermectin about an hour and a half ago and I'm getting the crawly feelings for the first time in about a week and a half, and I haven't felt the intense piercing sensation in about 2 weeks.

However, I still have red bumps all over. Are ALL of these red bumps separate mites?

What has everyone's symptoms been for post-scabies? I'm not sure if I'm there yet.

Also, I read somewhere that the mites can develop a tolerance for Ivermectin. I hope to GOD this isn't true, but what does everyone know about it?

Like I said, I think I'm making progress, but I just don't know.. I'm still itching like crazy, but it's a different kind of itching, if that makes any sense.

Yes the mites can become tolerant to ivermectin. That is very aggressive and dangerous taking that very close. Also I hope you are using topical along with Ivers.

Studies concerning sarcoptic mites and Ivermectin resistance have been posted and are still available on the internet for anyone to read. key in Ivermectin resistance and Australia or check the forums for links to studies. A person would have to take 50 or 60 doses over a period of years according to one case study in Australia. Ivermectin resistant sarcoptic mites are rare.

The dosing your using won't cause mites to become tolerant of Ivermectin. No studies have been done on humans to determine the correct dose when taking an injectable Ivermectin orally. No one knows how much of the injectable ivermectin taken orally is being metabolized and making it to the stratum coreum layer where the mites burrow. So you can't know for sure what your dose really is. I don't post links to studies anymore because they are just where I found them, you can find them too. Don't rely on posters for all your information, including me. We are either nuts, ignorent or just plain idiots.

You say it's been a week and a half since your dosing and you have red bumps all over. That's not a good sign.

Posters who make a blank statement without explaining are not helping.

I recently have been feeling itchy and started noticing small bumps almost pimple like in the places where I'm itching. Does this sound like scabies...I just lost my insurance so I'm afraid to go to the doctor what do you think? I can post pictures.

Sounds like it but it could be many things. Does it itch like crazy? Worst itch in your life? I would read up on this forum and such. Quite a bit of information on this forum.

Jack, here's my opinion. It sounds like an iver rash that I and others have experienced. Especially with that agressive treatment schedule, and your statement that it's a different kind of itch, more topical than deep down? If so it should go away in a few days after not taking iver. Sounds like you might have this beat, let us know.

It's not the worst itch but it's really bad at night. I'm starting to see it more on my legs, do you think it could be from a tanning bed?

Could be. Thing about scabies is that you can pick it up pretty easy. Have you went to the doctors about this? If the itch is very intense at night it does sound like scabies. Do you get scabs from scratching?

Amiee-
A lot of people do get it from tanning beds because the mites are actually atracted to IR lights in the tanning booth and there is a misconception that if you go to the tannng booth you can be quickly healed.

I'd stay away from tanning booths if I were you.

Al- The sulphur's still working. I'm knocking on wood.

good grief i cant find which thread it was on now to respond to it but someone made comment about it being so easy to pick up from just a handshake and yes you do get mighty leery after having it both to touch people for fear of infecting them and after finally being cured from others who touch you thinking i might get reinfected again.i am happy to say my fears about that over time have died down greatly but the thought still pops up every now and then especially when someone strange that i really dont know wants to shake my hand or touches me but what can you do scream NO! and run from them?!lol

they say donald trump will not shake anyones hand and after hearing that and having had scabies i wonder if thats the reason why.cant say that i blame him really, whatever the reason may be.scabies sure can put the fear in you.

Al-

I feel like I am almost there. When I've been a month with no burrows on me or anyone else in the family I'll feel much better.

We are still cleaning and wearing the msm cream.

The kids are coming home on Thanksgiving.

Thanks for asking.

Hi all, i have had scabies for about 5 months and lemme tell yah it is the worst thing in the world. I first went to the doctors for bumps near my groin area, along with the old shaft, and an intense itching. So not only am i freaked out, but the doctor prescribing me $250 worth of STD medicine didnt really help. I used it all and nothing went away actually prolly got worst. My buddy was experincing the same effects i was and found out it was scabies. I had my doctor prescribe me permethrin cream not on his diagnosis because hes a jack ass. I came home from work, took a nice hot shower, applied the cream everywhere and then went to town doing some old fashion cleaning. Washed every piece of clothing i have, probably not neccesary but better safe then sorry. It's been three days and im still itching like a crack addict on 8 mile. However i am seeing some areas start to clear up the burrows are scabbing over but for some reason the thought of my house crawling with bugs is still running through my head. Did the permethrin cream work for any of you and if so how long after were you still experiencing the effects. I pray for all of you cause i know exactly what its like. Band together because i know were not all crazy haha!
