Scabies on face and scalp?

Well things went well, the derm said I will have the ich for a few more weeks, but all and all I think these bugaboos are dead (hope). I have been using this steroid cream, which I'm not a fan of, it seems to make me a bit more itchy. The rash is going away, the spots come and go still. The derm said it's just my body healing and getting rid of the carcass and poop. I feel better, not hopelessly lost anymore. Its going to be a long road but I can huge my kids again, go into public not feeling like a leper. I take 2 showers a day to make sure I wash the yucky away. I use lotion that the doc gave me to deal with the dry skin. For the people reading my post please have faith, don't give up. Follow directions, wash and rotate your clothes, shoes, sheets. Reinfection is the way to screw yourself. I ironed my clothes, hot dryers, it's extreme but prevention of reinfection is the key. Some methods don't work for everyone but there are tons of ways to treat yourself. Explore your options, don't do hanky stuff. Read information on this horrible bug. I will pray for each one of you. God bless, and God speed.  (Mar 12, 2013 | post #798)

Needpeace well my doctor told me I was in post scabies. The ich was really intense. It was worse then when I had the bugs. I ich here and there, but the "biting" has stopped. My skin has taken a pounding, I got a rash from the cream, but I got stuff to deal with it. I think I caught it early, my derm said she couldn't even take a scraping. I go back today its been about 2 weeks so we shall see what the deal is. I hope your doin better ill post when I get Bach, (its a hour ride) so it will be a bit. I do get new spots but they come and go. My skin is healing I will have a scar or two, but ill take that over the bugaboos any day. Have a good one.  (Mar 11, 2013 | post #796)

Well I took a bleach bath an borax, it kinda worked. The biting and ich was eased for about four hours. I used the perm at night and I got 8 hours of sleep. I don't recommend bleaching but it kinda works. I did see tiny white things floating in the water. It might of been the eggs or the dudes or dead skin not sure. This morning I'm going to just use the borax in the shower, because my tub is crap, it's made for like a child and I'm 5"11. I'm going to use warm water then the perm. The doc said wait till hair is dry the water will dilute the cream. If you have the cream on stay away from water. I have found the burrow so I'm going to lol cream the Hell out of it. I do have scabs on some bumps so I believe it's working. It's very important to disrupt the life cycle of these things. They need YOU to survive, and it's very important to clean your environment around you, the dead scabies, and poop will make u ich, so clean! It's like 30 degrees in the day and 19 at night so I leave my clothes shoes outside. I wait 5 days wash with borax and sit outside for 24 hours, because I live in an apartment and the dryer is from 1980 and has no temp control. I've had this for 11 days now an seem to be keeping on top of it. I do get spots that come and go go crazy but I think its normal. Cleaning is the best thing to do, but the most important thing is not re-infecting yourself. I'll post on my progress in a few days, thanks to needpeace for the info, but Dr said no. Good luck they may have won the battle, but the war is not over!! Hoora!  (Feb 23, 2013 | post #776)

How many times can I use permethrin cream...

Hi I'm another victim of this menace. I just found out I had this. It's been seven days since I notice the little pimples. I have used one tube of perm, and on my sec. I can't find the s shape burrow that I have read about. I do have tons of little bumps all over, I mean everywhere. I'm trying to limit my walking around the house. I have put my remotes in plastic bags, freeze my wallet and other things. My PlayStation controlers are in a bag also. I started washing my clothes with borax, and soak my glasses in it. I'm really scared, I have two kids and a fiance. I haven't seen them in weeks. I feel traped alone. I vaccum daily change my sheets and clothes in cycle. My mom got it and I feel horrible, the worst son ever. I'm afraid. I cry all the time. I'm a guy too...used to soilder for U.S. Army...been to Afghanistan faced a menace, but I always came home. Now I'm here and can't be around anyone. I'm trying my best to keep my head up, but thoughts of stuff have been popping in my head of suicide. Im feel disgusting, dirty, and hopeless. I joined this too see how people are copeing with this. I don't know what works what doesn't. I'm trying to keep track of spots, but I have a lot. I'm at a lost, but I think it's fair if I read your story, then I should share mine. Please keep posting so I can get new ideas other then what I'm doing. Thank you all for the things you post, even the little fighting is cool, I see I'm not the only fed up on here. You guys are my Heroes.  (Feb 20, 2013 | post #209)
