Scabies

Morgellons and Lyme from mite infections

For what it's worth since this thread is about detoxing...I have a far infrared sauna that I was only using sporadically. I decided to get serious about being more disciplined with it. I have been using it every other day or every third day for about 2 1/2 weeks now and it really see a to be making a difference, I heat it to about 117 to 120 degrees to start, and stay it until it hits 140 degrees which is usually 40 to 45 minutes. At first I was getting a rash all a over my stomach, breasts and chest that would last until almost the next sauna session but after a week or so that stopped. I've never been a big sweater but now I sweat a lot which is great. The crawlies on my face and arms are gone completely. I'm still dealing with what I think is scabies on my foot (at this point I'm not so sure anymore) but it seems to be Improving. I'm hoping that the high, dry heat will kill any live mites and with continued use it will keep killing them as they hatch, but that is just my theory. I keep breaking out with blisters on my toes every 4 to 5 days, but I have also been spot treating with lindane, eurax and iver topically. I think I just need to stop treating to see if they are post scabies but I am afraid to stop. We all know how fast it can spread and I want to keep it contained to my foot in case it is still an active case.  (Nov 20, 2013 | post #455)

Albendazole (Valbazen) Curing Me

You've never shared your story Cindilu? I have been coming to this forum for a long time and read and read all the posts but I never posted because I didn't feel I had anything constructive to add and I'm kind of a shy person. But I feel like I know all of you so I just wanted to give a little background about myself. I'm sorry if my drivel bored or offended you, then please don't read my posts again. You know we are all people with feelings. My mother passed 25 yrs ago today and it's an emotional day for me. I really didn't need to wake up and read your rude comment. I'm just here like everyone else trying to get help.  (Nov 13, 2013 | post #105)

Albendazole (Valbazen) Curing Me

I went to my regular Dr. Last month after my foot got reinfected at the end of August and I wasn't making progress clearing it up. I could see he has become frustrated with me because he said i other than working in a daycare setting I can't be getting reinfected. Now what stumps me is that when I got scabies the first time 4 1/12 yrs ago it presented on my foot, which is a strange place to get it. I don't know for sure but I think it ,ay have been from trying on shoes at the mall after Xmas. I thought it was weeping eczema and waited almost 2 months before I went to the Dr. By then it had spread to my other foot and both wrists. Like I said in an earlier post, the perm cleared it up but my ignorance and misinformation I kept getting reinfected over and over again and the perm stopped working. I wish I had kept a log back then of the infected times and clear times. It always seemed I would breakout again when the weather got cold and I would get out the fall clothes. So ...I went to the derm for the first time about 3 weeks ago after my Dr didn't know what to do with me anymore. It was the most frustrating and hulimating experience I've ever had. I own my own business. I am a respected business owner, wife, mother and grandmother. I have credibility in my community and I was shocked by how rude and uncaring the Dr and his assistant were. When I told him that I was reinfected by a coat last year that had not been worn in months he actually got right in my face and said IMPOSSIBLE! I have been been heroic efforts to keep them contained to my foot. He said it couldn't be scabies because I don't have them on my wrists or between my fingers. I was devastated. I waited weeks for that appointment and had hope that he could help me and he sent me home with a script for cortisone cream and nothing else. I've done the whole gamet of bleach and borax baths, neem oil, cayenne pepper, sulphur soap, sulphur ointment and sulphur powder, lindane lotion, eurax that I ordered from the UK. I've only done 4 doses of the ivermectin horse paste. It didn't seem to help and it made me feel sick. I have been using it topically though and it I've been ok with that. All of these things help in varying degrees to a certain extent but then 5 days later I'm right back where I started from. It's just a vicious circle that I don't see an end too. It may be a light case contained to my foot but it is no less stressful.  (Nov 12, 2013 | post #97)

how do i get rid of scabies once and for all? its driving...

I keep getting a reoccurring outbreak on my foot. I went two weeks this time where I wasn't using anything at all and then last night I started feeling itchy and sure enough I had two of the little clear fluid blisters by my big toe. But I did notice that the top of my toe was red and the hair and pores were red and puffy...not sure if it is a nodule or not. I too am beginning to wonder if there is a fungal component going on but what about the blisters? That would confirm scabies right?  (Nov 11, 2013 | post #3997)
