I'm glad she's getting better poor pumpkin dealing with this. I hope this is all behind her, and she can enjoy spending time with mama. How are you holding up?
I hope so, too... I'm a mess... The vet said there's really nothing more she can do for my cat... If he doesn't start eating by tomorrow, I'm going to have to have him put down. Kills me... Poor baby is only 5 years old.:(

How are you doing, lady? I hope things are getting better for you...

Hey MIA! Have you tried or read anything about spraying original Listerine on your scalp? I've tried it the last two days, and it does seem to be helping a bit... I read that it kills, lice, fungus, and bacteria... Not sticky at all if you use the original...

Are you still having success with the 96% alcohol?

Oh no!!:( I'm so sorry you're going through this... We tried leaving ours behind, too, but it didn't work... Even after tossing everything. I hope you have better luck... We were relying on a pest control guy at the time.., hopefully since you are spraying the chemical yourself, you can get a handle on them.... Praying for you, lady...

What you have is not around you it is inside you. It's everywhere that you are. For a word file explaining how to rid yourself of the infection then message me at Lotus Fan and supply your email and I will send you the file.
I am not selling anything of any kind.

Yes I've heard about Listerine original and tried it. Stings but not much diff. Could be the viscosity, lack of adherence. The 96% alcohol is a godsend as it dries and disinfects - just have to keep re-applying. Using that in conjunction with perm cream ATM. Sorry to hear of your cats predicament- praying for him or her. This disease is a b!tch. Fack those little devils.

Thanks Langoliers. I will let you know what she says. The dry skin sucks. I'm not trying to use lotions or oils, drinking a lot of water though. I told my dad I was using DE, and he said that he used it a few years back when he had an ant issue at his house and he said it worked like a dream!

We live on a lake out in the woods and have always had a big fly problem.

Not this year! DE took care if those too.

Finding DE is the little silver lining of this horrible experience.

What is the Linden soap that you used Lang? Do you buy it over the counter or is it a script?

I got the perm cream from my dr for two applications a week apart but I'm afraid to use it. Read horror stories on the internet about mites attacking you in places you didn't put the cream on. What do everyone think based on your experiences? Should I try it for the two weeks?

My hair is still crawling and itching. Using peppermint oil, tea trea, cinnamon leaf and clove oil in my shampoo. But nothing is working. Last night was the worse. Got attacked all night. Any suggestions anyone?

Lindane has resulted in seizures and deaths and is the most dangerous treatment anyone can do. Langoliers id the last person you want to take advice from because he belongs in a psychiatric institution.

Also the DE he recommends, which is silica, causes long term severe health problems. This guy is nothing but trouble. He is also a habitual liar.

"Silica, also known as silicon dioxide, is the most common mineral on earth. Inhaling dusts that contain crystalline forms of silica can cause a fibrosing interstitial lung disease called silicosis. Silicosis usually takes at least 10 years after exposure to develop. However, it can develop more quickly, especially after large exposures. Quartz is a common type of crystalline silica and is a large component of many types of rock. Inhalation exposure can occur in many kinds of work, including tunneling, quarrying, mining, construction, roadway repair and demolition, sandblasting or any type of work that breaks up quartz-containing rock. Cristobalite exposure can occur in foundry work as a result of heating amorphous silica. In addition to causing silicosis, crystalline silica exposure has been associated with pulmonary function impairment and COPD. Silica has also been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as a known human carcinogen. Crystalline silica is thought to damage lung tissue in large part as a result of oxidant mechanisms, with freshly fractured crystalline silica is being more potent than aged materials. Silica-induced diseases can be prevented by reducing exposures. It is encouraging that deaths from silicosis have fallen from more than 1060 in 1968 to less than 170 in 2005."

Hi Lost, what helping me is using vinegar when I take a bath. I pour it on my scalp and leave it there till I'm done bathing. Then I wash my hair with demnenox (sp?) shampoo. Dry it off and put sulfur 8 conditioner on my scalp. I have been crawl free only since Friday but even just a little relief is awesome!
What kind of mites do you have? Are the mites on you? Burrowing? The prem is pretty good. I would do it with the iver pills so you can not them out. With out have to do tons of prem. have you tired sleeping with a shower cap on?

Looks like I lost my reply. Have to do again

Did you use reg vinegar or apple cider ?

I tried the swim cap at night but then stopped when I read fungus likes moisture. The swim cap kept hair moist so I don't know if I can still use it

Don't know what kind if mites yet. Sending samples to Purdue university tomorrow. I don't know if I gave burrowing. How can you tell ?

Why not use an exterminator for the house? Are their products not as good as transport or the IGR ?

I'm trying to get her internally and her skin where they don't like her so.Not moving to leave bugs-already tried that! Just need cheaper rent lol! I have purchased some Benzarid that I read about. Can be used on furniture,matresses,inside cars and is oderless and non staining. Some have had great luck with it so will let you know how it works.

I have used with acv or regular vinegar. It can be the cheap stuff. Just be really careful with your eyes, it stings. I would have a wash cloth near by. How about wrapping your hair with a scarf?
Do you have lines or scratch marks made by the devils? Sometimes there near a bite. That great that you will know soon what your dealing with. I read a story where a woman kept getting bit at night, at the docs said she had DP, and she was like umm no I'm getting but she thought it was scabies but come to find out bird mites. So she had to get her house gassed. It's expensive, but she said she's bite free and happy. She had to get just about everything dry cleaned. Poor woman spent a lot of money. At least she's all better!

Hey. Did you guys notice that those small hair piece like stuff is everywhere; in the toilet sink, on the tables, and even in the Apple store.. I think tap water carries this kind of parasites. So I would say everyone has it, symptoms depend on people's immune system.

I have springtails. Pest control identified but didn't think they could help. Sort of thought I was delustional. I found sleeping in a sleeping bag that has the insecticide barrier works. I reall feel I got these because my immunity was low and I got a really bad fungal infections. I think the springtails infested my body to eat the fungus off skin cells. Tractor Supply has great chemicals to kill these presisitant devils. The itch has driven me insane and my car is so infested. I covered my carpet with seven's dust and put it under my bed. All drapes had to go. These things ruin my painting that were canvas. I can't believe how they embedded in the fabric. God help us all this is the worst hell I have ever been thru. Dear God all I have left is my FAITH!
