Shampoo recommendations?

Hi: Sebulex is the shampoo that contains 2% sulfur. I am a big fan of Ivermectin. If I could take it everyday (or every other day) I think I'd be cured. It's not a perfect medicine, though, because: * It doesn't kill eggs. Therefore,there are periods of time when eggs are hatching, and possibly maturing and laying more eggs? * It doesn't stay in the system very long. * It isn't easy to get. My doctor (fortunately) let me use it, but he won't keep prescribing it. * It's possible that, over time, mites can develop resistance to it (I read a medical article about this); so, overuse of Ivermectin could render is useless to a patient. It's true I've read a lot on this forum, for at least a month. I first made some posts as "Ellen" (unregistered); then, I decided to register, and I chose the user name Annie1435. That is my history here. I wanted to have an identity without giving my location (for privacy) but my ISP is providing my location/city. Many are cured by Ivermectin and Permethrin. I'd like to be one of them. I will keep using them (if I can get them). But I can't use them every day. I'm just trying to improve my chances, by using a helpful ahampoo, if there is one.  (May 2, 2011 | post #14)

Shampoo recommendations?

I'm not a troll. i do believe Ivermectin works - it totally calms my entire body, including scalp. It doesn't stay in the system very long, though. After a couple of days, problems arise. Also it doesn't kill eggs, so they are presumably hatching and moving around after a day or so. Permethrin, also good, though it seems to be less effective each time I use it. For one reason or another, the "cure" isn't lasting, for either of these medicines. I can't be the only person this has happened to - there are too many posts and threads that are similar. My real question is whether a shampoo with only 2% sulphur can do any good. I guess I will try it and see. I have never seen a board that is so troll-phobic - what is that about? What would my agenda be in posting these questions unless I were sincerely interested in answers?? I'm not selling anything. I've never used sulphur, I'm not pro-sulfur.  (May 2, 2011 | post #12)

Shampoo recommendations?

I've been able to rid my body of scabies (using Ivermectin and Permethrin, several times) but not my scalp. My doctor thinks my scalp itching is "leftover " from scablies healing. I don't think so! It steadily gets worse, not better. I think the scabies were never knocked out. Relief lasts a day or two with treatment, then scabies (itching, biting, roaming mites) are back. I need something I can use every day on my scalp. I've read the threads about sulfur. I have VERY dry sensitive skin and I'm afraid of sulfur. Still, I'm pretty desperate. Reading about Selsun Blue and other shampoos with selenium sulfide, I noticed that hair loss is a frequent side effect, esp. with daily use. That alarms me. Sebulex, which contains 2% sulfur (not selenium sulfide) is a possibility. Not sure if it would help or have side effects. My regular shampoo is DHS Sal Shampoo (salicylic acid 3%). It's great for eczema on scalp, but doesn't do a thing for scabies. Any ideas or recommendations?  (May 2, 2011 | post #1)

scabies treatment that worked for us

Anon, I'm not sure what you are asking. Lyclear does not stain sheets, if that is the question. It comes out in the wash. Our doctor told us after applying cream, to go to bed on clean sheets. The next day, wash those sheets and dry on hot, then go to bed again on clean sheets.  (Apr 30, 2011 | post #22)
