Scabies/Eggs lifespan? and a question about premethrin...

and an other question--- is premethrin safe to use on your face? I was told by my doctor not to, but it seems like some people on this forum recommend it?  (Apr 22, 2007 | post #2)

Scabies/Eggs lifespan? and a question about premethrin...

how long can scabies and the scabie babies still in their eggs live without human contact? if i just threw all of my clothes into my closet, and didn't touch them for x amount of days, would that work? or do things really need to be kept in airtight bags? also... i know that a side affect of premethrin is itchiness, but how long is that suppost to last? I used premethrin 5 last friday, and i'm still itchy. Is it because of the premethrin, because i'm still infested, or because although the scabies may be dead, i'm still have an allergic reaction? annnd one more thing-- is there anything i can do to prevent scabies? once i am cured, is there any product i can use to prevent them? (other than, of course, making sure anyone i come in contact with does not have any signs of scabies) I hope everyone is doing well!!!  (Apr 21, 2007 | post #1)

Anyone ever had scabies along with Eczema? (please read!)

what i've been doing for a decent nights sleep, has been taking 50 mg of benadryl, to help the itching and to keep me asleep. other than that, i use aloe vera gel (keep it in the fridge so it's nice and cold!) and that helps a ton.  (Apr 18, 2007 | post #8)

SOOO many questions

I've been itchy for about a month now, and learned last week that it was scabies. AND I LOOK DISGUSTING. my ENTIRE stomach is covered in scabs, and my arms and hands are embarrassing. The itching is already so painful (i'm losing so much sleep), it feels really bad to think that my skin is going to be totally messed up. I was curious to know how the rest of you healed up? how long did it take for the red bumps to go away? I used permethrin cream on friday night, and i'm still itching as my doctor said i would be, but I am getting new bumps.. is this normal? when do you guys think i should go to a doctor again? the most bizarre thing of all is that NO ONE in my family has any sign of infestation, and neither does my boyfriend (who i haven't seen in about 3 weeks because of travel). I don't know any one who has been infested, and i live in a very clean apartment. I haven't been sexually active with anyone other than my non-infested boyfriend, or stayed over/worn anyone else's clothing... how did i get scabies??? In anycase, for itching, I would highly recommend aloe, its the only thing thats made me feel better (though i haven't tried tea tree oil yet). the formula i'm using right now is a mix of aloe vera gel and lidocaine. good luck everyone!  (Apr 17, 2007 | post #1)
