RK, Just curious and obviously clueless, but what is a troll? Is it a real person? And what is their purpose? Trying to sell something obviously, I guess. MK  (Aug 16, 2011 | post #666)

Put directly on scalp and then massage some olive or grapeseed oil into the scalp to get even coverage.  (Aug 15, 2011 | post #661)

I treated my 3 year and 5 year olds by mixing the diluting the advantix down to 10% with 90% grapeseed oil. I applied to their scalps and bodies avoiding the eye area. I treated them both 3 different times. I applied and did not bathe them for 3 days in between and then gave them a 2 day break before applying again. They both had itching and crawling sensations before but not after so it works.  (Aug 2, 2011 | post #610)

I am thinking about doing another few days on. I just have so much tickling crawling sensations randomly around my body and it seems to be coming more rather than subsiding which makes me think I had some stragglers that are repopulating my body, life, mind... I have much less physical markings. My scars are fading and my skin looks much better. Getting occasional swollen bumps that I spot treat and they flatten out on my lower legs--which was my worst area in the darkest hours.  (Jul 26, 2011 | post #593)

You don't have to apologize. During my treatment I had some very low moments where I was totally convinced I was not improving. Even during your days off treatment you will experience varying degrees of symptoms. Just stay the course. I am spot treating some when I feel a crawl or tickle at night of what I am certain what is post scabies itches, but we all know the trauma of this disease, so it just makes me feel better.  (Jul 17, 2011 | post #564)

The Advantix also bothered my eyes, especially the thin tissue on near my bottom eyelashes. I tried to avoid this small area of skin since I did not have any symptoms here. I did soak my eyebrows well though. When I treated my husband also he complained for a few hours about his eyes, but it stops after a few hours.  (Jul 15, 2011 | post #552)

I did not do an Ivermectin treatment with my Advantix. Except for one dose of Stromecol I got during my Advantix treatment, I used nothing else for my regimen than Advantix with Grapeseed oil. Paranoid--I too worried that it was not going deep enough into my dry skin, but it did and it does. I usually applied in mid-afternoon so I was up and active (not rubbing it off onto my bed sheets). Just make sure you massage it well into the skin. AND DO cut your finger and toe nails very very short. Get an orange stick or use a tooth pick and clean very well under all of your nails. Then, dip the orange stick into the advantix and cram it under all of your nails. Throw away the used orange stick/toothpick. Make sure if you are shaving your legs or face for guys, you use razor only once. Buy some cheap disposable shavers during treatment and toss after one use. If you wash your hands during the day--reapply before going to bed. I had mites surface on my hands during treatment that I had no idea were there. This is how much I used during my treatment: (I have shorter hair and I weigh 135 lb). Every Day for three days in a row without showering: 1 pipette on my head (undiluted) and 1 Pipette on my body 50% mix with grapeseed oil. Fourth day shower and reapply as stated above. Day five and six apply again as stated above one undiluted on head and one mixed with 50% grapeseed oil on body. Day 7 shower and reapply. Day 8 and 9 apply no shower. Day 10 shower and apply. Take 5 or 7 days off. shower daily or as much as you want but make sure you are washing your bedding daily in borax etx..still as you should have been for the first 10 days too. Do not even consider re-using any thing you previously used. Dry your body with cheap paper towels if you must but do not re-use. Wear clean everything daily. Freeze anything you cannot wash in borax--purse, belts, etc... Wipe all surfaces with bleach water, borax or rubbing alcohol. When in doubt...wash it again. Iron everything that you have washed before you wear it. Including underwear, bras and socks. Keep your area clean. Put dirty clothes in a plastic bag until you wash them. As for my update... the crawling sensation is subsiding for me, which is great. I had this during and post scabies a ton. Meanwhile, I am working up a fitness program. For some reason when I go running, I get a huge histamine rush and my torso-belly button down and my buttocks itch like crazy. I opted for swimming laps today. I am going to try to run again tomorrow and see if I get the histamine blast again.  (Jul 12, 2011 | post #533)

I don't think they "moved". I think that they were there already and the advantix is just brought them to the surface. I though I only had them on my lower legs too and in the end, found dead mites surface on my hands, toes and other places. My head itched like crazy and I never thought they were there. The first time off to rest the skin with no Advantix would be on Day 11 if you are following the RK protocol. I just showered every 4th day and immediately reapplied. I did have to wash my hair for public outings throughout my regime, but I always applied another pipette to my head as soon as I returned home. You can also wash your feet, armpits and private parts daily and just have some 50/50 mixed up and ready to reapply once you are washed. This will make you feel fresher on the three days that you don't shower at all. I know it is a lot of money and a lot of discipline to muster, but I believe this is a small sacrifice to pay to be cured. You can get regular Advantix at this webite-- 16 pipettes for 113$ and free shipping--they are a canadian company so the guy from Canada if you are reading this is good for you! http://www.budgetp etcare.com/Product s.aspx?id=8&Pr oduct=K9_Advantix I wish I found that site in the beginning. that is only $226 for 32 pipettes and you can be cured. That should be plenty for most people I would think. I had to use more because I treated my husband and kids too and I also used more pipettes because I had to reapply to hair and to my hands every night, since impossible to not wash hands and take care of family and children. I paid a lot more buy buying on other sites and by not buying enough ahead of time. I could tell it was really making my husband nervous every time I ordered more, heh, heh, heh. Anyway, be strong, vigilant and stay the course. I had no lasting side effects from using this drug. Pretty soon this will be all a distant memory.  (Jul 11, 2011 | post #509)

Correction here--I used a total of 36 pipettes during my treatment--I said 30 above in the article.  (Jul 10, 2011 | post #484)

Not really weeping sores. During the treatment I did get very itchy spots--especially on top of one foot. Twice it happened that I itched an area during treatment and I got almost blistering effect that quickly turned into dry scabs that were pretty deep. It took over a week before the scabs started coming off and they looked to go deep. Now in those areas, there is discoloration spots in the area. As for my scalp that itched like crazy I would get a large raised area for awhile that would flatten out in about an hour. I did not notice any scabs on my scalp. Yesterday I felt itch on one of my shins. I unintentionally started scratching it until I scraped the surface and now I have a scab. My legs looked great until that. I have two red dots on my other shin. One has a scab on it now. the other is still just a red dot. During my last round, I got an area of scabs by my spine toward the lower back. When I burned my skin with the bleach I did get some blisters that oozed a bit, but that is all.  (Jul 10, 2011 | post #483)

Why don't you try ironing your mattress? Take the cover off and iron the entire surface with a very hot iron. Wash and iron the cover and the sheets before you make the bed  (Jul 10, 2011 | post #482)

POST Scabies--Advantix II User Day 51 Cont. Advantix II Treatment Program. On May 21st I started. For 10 days I put one undiluted pipette of Advantix II on my scalp and On Pipette diluted 50/50 with grapeseed oil. I put it on three days in a row without showering and showered on the 4th day. At night I put straight Advantix II on my hands and for the first few nights wore gloves, shower cap on my head and wrapped my shins in plastic wrap--as this is where I had most of my itching. Before I started treatment, I did not think I had any mites on my scalp, but now I do believe I did. After the 10th day, I took 7 days break. Then I did another 7 days treatment followed by a 5 day break, then I applied another 5 days. During the cycle, I treated my husband and kids three times. My husband I treated the same as me, head to toe and he left it on 24 hours. I diluted the Advantix II down to 10% Advantix and 90% grapeseed oil. I used a total of 30 pipettes during the process. The last 16 pipettes were Advantix rather than Advantix II--f.y.i. During the treatment phase, I ironed everyone's clothes, including underwear and socks. We wore plastic shoes, or I froze sneakers overnight if they had been work since they were washed in the machine. I washed clothes in hot water with an added cup of Borax. I put one cup of Borax in my kids baths. I washed my hair and body with Selson Blue--It has sulfur. I through away all my make-up and bought new. I kept a huge bottle of rubbing alcohol by my bathroom sink. I soaked my hair brush, comb and wiped down all items in that area with the rubbing alcohol if I used them. For my mascara I got a new bottle. When I used it. I washed the wand and soaked it with the rubbing alcohol before putting the wand back in the bottle. I wiped the surface of the lipstick where it touched my lips with the alcohol too. Also my lip and eyeliner. (I am just writing all this down, so ladies can have ideas on a way to wear make-up during treatment, but not worry about spreading or reinfecting). I borax washed the hard surfaces in my car every two or three days. It was very hot where we stayed during the treatment though, so I think much was killed from the suffocating high temperatures that result from a closed car in the summer. I have never, ever, ever seen any of the following. Black specks, gray or yellow. I have never seen any mites or fibers or anything other people have reported. When I was in active scabies, I got the bluish, purple tracks under the skin. Now they are scars under the skin and starting to fade. Before treatment I had a lot of crawling sensations, profound itching that could not be satisfied by scratching and occasionally sharp biting feelings. During my treatment I had fluctuating levels of itching and crawling from intense to days when I did not feel much, I was taking antihistamine off and on during the treatment too. I did not have any nerve damage or anything from the treatment either. My nose and ears did tingle a lot and numbed some while the Advantix II was applied, but subsided after a few hours. My head itched like crazy when the Advantix was on it, and itched a couple of days after but now it does not itch much. Now I feel some crawling off and on, but as soon as I touch the area of that sensation, it quits immediately. If something tickles, I just touch it and it stops. Not like before treatment of during. During treatment I got red dots that got scabs and fell off. I will keep posting what I am experiencing as it goes. I hope I am done and continue to improve. Thanks to RK for support and the rest of the group for sharing their stories.  (Jul 10, 2011 | post #478)

Sorry I have not reported lately. We have been traveling again and I did not have easy access to internet or much time on my hands. I will post an update after this question. RK Do you know of anyone in this group cured that did not use Ivermectin at all? Just curious. I am pretty sure I am in post scabies, but as you know the symptoms are similar to scabies so of course I havce doubts and insecurity. I would not take as much as you, but maybe thinking to do a couple of doses of Ivermec just as an insurance policy. My husband and I took one day dosage of Ivermec during my Advantix round 3, but that is the only time I used it. So, if I am cured I can be pretty close to a test that Advantix II works alone without any Ivermectin. Just curious as to your thoughts on the matter. I will post my experiences now  (Jul 10, 2011 | post #476)

RK, Since I got my last order of Advantix from the new place that CAtzilla told me about--great price, I noticed the different packaging and now realize that I was using the Advantix II up until now. It still had the imidacloprid and permethrin at the same percentages and it evidently did the job, but I notice the regular Advantix I now am using seems less irritating and is not giving me as much tingling in my mouth or numbing on my nose and ears as the Advantix II. I think the Advantix II growth regulator is maybe what was so numbing. Anyway, just some notes here on myself as a lab specimen. I think I will rename myself Advantix Junkie. Joking. I am going for the final 5 days now with one more treatment to the family and then meditation. Thanks for the advice on that. Meanwhile I am also reading a lot of great things about infrared sauna and will be checking that out too. I want my body to dump these chemicals as soon as possible when I am done and I read that 70% of the sweat from using these saunas is toxins. Did anyone try any cleanse or anything after their treatment? I really hated putting all these chemicals on my skin but I am happy I did. Just want to reverse the damage now on my happy scabies-free body.  (Jun 27, 2011 | post #394)
