And yes, benadryl is an antihistamine only, and may help relieve the symptoms. I wouldn't use it myself. I just woundn't monitor what is happening to my body. And it may be sorta scary to use antihistamines while treating, then the benadryl or whatever stops working and you have new bumps/itching etc. You may get misled.  (Mar 30, 2013 | post #188)

How I Killed Scabies In Less Than A Hour, naturally, and ...

My cleaning routine was crazy. I used to be one of these irritating people who keep their homes shiny 24/7, so when I claimed I started deep cleaning everything to a friend he was like 'say what, wasn't everything sterilized there yet?' I weared anything only once, regardless what was that. Underwear, tees, and such things are obvious, but I also considered coats, scarfs, shoes, gloves, jackets, absolutely everything that touched me. If non-washable, in freezer for two days. I didn't wash my bedding daily thought, I'd have had to spend all my day laundering since I have a queen size. I just ironed it on the highest heat setting with steam, pillows including (just by placing iron on it and pushing the 'steam release' button they got extremely hot inside). My comforter was packed airtight for two weeks. Vinyl, awkward mattress cover. I also covered the zipper in it with scotch tape, just to be sure. My mattres, before being enclosed, was generously rubbed with diatomaceous earth. I kept a few things in a separate closet, the main one was sealed for two weeks with the rest of clothes inside. Sprayed very lavishly with alcohol/water/pepp ermint oil before. I washed everything normally, some things even in cold water, but every load had at least a cup of ammonia. Nevertheless every piece was throughoutly steam ironed on both sides, even towels. I handled clean dry laundry with vinyl gloves, rubbing some ammonia solution after every piece done. I didn't like the borax idea since the only manufacturer in the US is henkel (yes, it owns 20 mule team) and they test on animals. My life is absolutely cruelty-free. I bought some from other distributor on amazon but the price was too high comparing to expected effectiveness. And Austin's Ammonia is pretty cheap (gallon for a dollar in a dollar store) and a very potent mite killer. Since I found it out, I thrown away both alco/peppermint and bleach/water sprays. Mixed cheap glass cleaner with ammonia (2:1, but do it only if the gc does not contain bleach). After every usage of the bathroom I sprayed everything touched with that mix and closed the door. Pretty simple, does not take too much time if you keep a bottle handy on your sink. I was really, really psychotic, so I was transfering dishes from dishwasher to cabinets wearing vinyl gloves, then packing the unit with dirty ones, closing, starting and sterilizing every handle and button with my spray mix. Every handle on any cabinet was rubbed with the mix at least twice a day. Floors vacuumed daily, followed with steam mop. After I did my first Iver I noticed there is something different going on, but I was still pretty convinced I had them. THANK GOD I stopped using ANY topical treatment while taking iver. First of all, it kept the sebum as I explained a few posts above, second - I'd never really realise when I was cured. At first I was itching like crazy. Even worse than while being untreated. And a few new bumps appeared. I still itch from a time to time, but I am completely sure I'm free of this sh*t. Maybe I overreacted a little with the cleaning and stuff, but at least I knew for sure there was NO way for them to survive.  (Mar 30, 2013 | post #187)

Ammonia! Cheaper than borax, works much better on killing them. I used to add approx. a cup to my laundry. I believe it even kills when the water isn't hot enough  (Mar 27, 2013 | post #184)

what did I do wrong?

Yeah but when I was writing the thread I was pretty convinced all the action failed because of itch and bumps. I'm still afraid that I just put them to sleep and in a week it's going to start all over again. Or I'd reinfest myself. It's a nightmare. No doctor is ever going to understand or give a proper advise unless experienced themself. Ironing is the best thing ever, it kills eggs too. You don't have to quarantine your clothes if you iron them on the hottest setting both sides, since it's usually around 400F, and no dryer ever gets that hot.  (Mar 20, 2013 | post #17)

Now there is no crawling at all, I feel maybe 20% of the itch and it goes away quite quickly when untouched, my rash is getting better andI feel like I really won the battle! I'm not going to stop being paranoic about the cleaning and stuff for at least two weeks I think but I need to underline that: -I used essential oils that burnt my skin and in some places I still see peeling flakes caused by peppermint and clove oils. That treatment somehow seemed to helped at first so I decided to keep slathering myself but two days later I had a massive, extreme outbreak. Almost every inch of my skin was burned but itching irresistibly, with scarlet red rash. I also noticed when I swept my hand e.g. on my shoulder it would be covered with some tiny white crystal-like dots, whaever it was I don't want to know. That is when I was desperate enough to order horse paste. I took it on Sunday as second time and since the itch is getting better, no overwhelming need to scratch myself till I see blood.  (Mar 19, 2013 | post #15)
