Sulphur Cream   3  0   

Posted by Sharon (Wesely Chapel, Fl) on 01/15/2010

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Got rid of the durn things but got re-infested by the automobiles so got to start from scratch again. Just a word about the post-treatment itching. I had it bad after permethrin treatments. Found out it was because I was so allergic to the eggs laid under the skin. Sulfur helped stop the itch immediately. I purchase it cheaply from a bonsai seller and used 2 0z mixed with a thick hand cream as a salve. It kills them critters as well, but smells and can stain until it gets dry. Can be mixed with body wash in the same concentration for showers. My husband recently bought the lime sulphur dip for dogs and it is full strength. I have 4 long haired pomeranians that are the dickens to treat safely. I hope to try the enzymes on them. Now, someone please tell me how to gain everyone's FULL co-operation in treating these vermin. One member of my family has threatened to shut me up permanently if I mention it again and he is covered with them all over his back and spreading them. Woe is me.

Sulphur Soap, Borax   0  0

There used to be a company that made a natural solution that worked great on these things but I believe the FDA shut them down.

Sulfur soap is an alternative you can buy in the 99cent stores or drug stores. 35% is best. Until you find it, soak in the tub with borax for an hour or so and you will sleep well but you have to keep doing it.

Tea Tree Oil for Scabies   3  0

[YEA]  When I had scabies about 3 years back, I went to the doctor - she gave a script for premarin - after using it twice, my skin kept itching so I told the doctor and she said you will still itch even though it was gone - well I believe it so I never used anymore premarin. Needless to say, the doc was right. The scabies were gone even though I had itch for about a year then it finally stopped. Then 3 years later, I got scabies again - this time I looked on the internet for a natural cure. I found that Tree Tea Oil (about an ounce) along with Olive Oil (about 3 or 4 drops)- pour this into bath water and soak (your entire body and head) in the bathtub for about a half hour. It works but you have wash your bed sheet, etc. And clothing in hot water. Also need to clean your furniture and anything else that you touch.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]   No one has yet to mention how much the tea tree oils BURNS!! I poured one ounce into my bath and lasted less than 10 minutes. It started out fine and I was relaxed soaking in the tub. After a short time, though, the parts of my body most affected by the mites (groin area, waist, upper side of thighs, arm pits) began to burn intensely. The box said there might be a tingling sensation so I tried to power through it but the pain became too much to bear and I had to exit the tub. I feel like the burning was a good sign though! Even though it hurt I am dying for a remedy so I will try this again tomorrow.

I bought a job lot of 2oz tea tree oil bottles online 'buy 2 get 3 free' from the big online vitamin merchant that starts with a P, and I put it in everything. I add extra tea tree oil to my tea tree shampoo and toner - (tip - buy tea tree toiletries and add extra TTO to them for extra strength and ongoing protection), put it on my more affected spots straight after coconut oil so it won't burn, the real 100% pure stuff is very strong. Use it in the bath, put a few drops in your shower gel, do everything you can think of with tea tree except eat it. It is very strong, so start out doing a few of these at night if the smell is unsocial. Using it in oil like coconut, olive or almond oil is better than lotion because there are no additives or wax in an essential oil.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Can you get scabies on your head and face area? I have been fighting these "things" for almost 3 months. At first itching, then white type if burrowong mite.I have black specks and white substance that keep appearing. And of coarse the itching is intense. Went through 2 rounds of the Rx creams and the oral Ivermectin. All the doctor's I have seen say they are gone. I'm not so sure. How long will I itch? I am using tee tree oil. It seems to help with healing the open wounds with secondary infection. Do you think this sounds like something other than scabies? I drench myself in oil every day. Seems to draw them out. Any suggestions? I am desperate.

kleen green enzyme cleaner cured my itching head. Also my hair had been falling out at an alarming rate and that has stopped. I have no connections with the company. I just know that its the only thing that worked. I tried many things over a period of over 10 years. Mix 1 ounce with 8 ounces water and spray on at least twice a day.

New to scabies...had them about a week and I need some help. I'm currently waiting on tea tree oil in the mail and I haven't been to the doctor yet, so I thought I'd try some holistic methods before I went that route. I've read some of your posts and I had no idea that I could have them for a year!!! I'm afraid that I have the Norwegian type.

Hi
I have finally figured out how to beat the scabies with ease.

1. Buy the Kleen Green big gallon 128oz so that you can soak and spray your environment.

2. Buy 20 mule borax or any other borax to soak clothes for 15 minutes, add a touch of kleen green too and then wash and dry on high heat.

3. Buy a scrub cloth to scrub your body.. u can also get sulfur soap if u like.

4. Get some diacotomus earth and put on your carpet the proper way... Check instructions first as this thing is very dusty, my vacuum turned white once I tried to vacuum. So check instructions on proper use and get dust mask if needed.

5. Be positive and say an affirmation everyday like healing and health is my birth right... Or everyday in everyway I am getting better and better. Say a prayer every morning and night, there is a spiritual aspect to this I believe.

6. Drink teas that detoxify your body, or find a way to detoxify your body and do not eat junk food at all...!

7. Thats it... U will be cured within a week or 2 if you are diligent. Also checkout scabies killer.com as they have an oil formula that is effective, or if u like just buy what they are offering as it is what I have figured out through trial and error and research online... They have a money back guarantee... So thats a nice thing :)... Ur choice... Also try the above at your own, risk... I dont want u to sue me for trying to help you...

[YEA]  Tea Tree oil, after a bath of baking soda, cured my scabies. The prescription my doctor gave me made my scabies a lot worse so I decided to stop using it. The scabies burrows stung and itched so badly, so after taking a bath I applied tea tree oil on 5 cotton balls and whiped my body down. The itching is gone and my scabs are clean and no longer bleeding from all the previous scratching.

[YEA]   Tea tree oil really works on scabies! I had tried just about everything over a 3 month period and finally relief!!! I applied it to the itchy parts a few times a day and at bedtime and it took a few days to calm down and maybe 10 days to completely cure. I still had lots of scarring and weird patches over most of my body. I treated these with lavender oil and they cleared up like magic! So don't give up - there is relief!

Ted's Remedies   0  0   

Posted by Jane (New Jersey) on 02/06/2014

Hello,

I have a confirmed case of scabies and it has been 8 months of trying to get rid of it. I have tried everything i.e., medicines and natural treatments but none of these cure it only temporary fix. The disease has gone above my neck and is in my hair and I have had them on my face as well. This has been the challenge. I copied down a recipie from Ted's Earth Clinic and wanted to know if this will kill the mites in my hair as well. I'm a little reluctant to use DMSO because I heard controversial things about it. Here is Ted's recipie: Also, have done the Borax & peroxide rinse in the hair. It helps but does not cure it. Below is Ted's recipie. Any other advice would be welcomed. I am at my wits end with this and suffering greatly. A response would be appreciated.

Questions:

1. How do you measure 2.5%, 4% or 5% I.e. tablespoons or teaspoons?

2. how long do you leave it on and for what duration time?

3. Does this treatment get put on the body as well as the scalp?

PLEASE ADVISE.

Ted's comment: All oils are carrier oils, but their penetrant ability is limited, except for DMSO...I have found castor oil mixed with DMSO to be good - 25% castor oil and 75% DMSO. Then you can mix it with mustard powder, mustard oil, or d limonene at, say, 2.5%. That will take care of killing the mites. Plus, you add, say, 4% or 5% lavender oil. They're the approximate numbers I calculate

Jane: Ted is not an amateur. He has thoroughly researched all the products he recommends and takes them himself. I took 5g a day of dmso for 90 days. David Avacado Wolfe recommends dmso. Get the 99.9% pure, although many people use the 99% brand for farm animals. 1tbsp is 15ml. 5% of 1tbsp is 750mg. Mix 25% castor oil because the dmso needs to be at a certain dilution. The dmso carries the remedies through the skin barrier so there won't be anything left on the skin to wash off. For the scalp cut the hair very short before applying. When I had scabies the Dr. gave me some medicine in a cream that cured them immediately.

To Jane from NJ,

Re Ted's formula for mite infestation and your question on Ted's use of DMSO...

I've been using DMSO longer than most any other "curative" item ...about 30 years. Just used it a day ago on Impetigo case which is children's infection by bacteria. Used Bentonite clay, DMSO, H2O2 and Colloidal Silver to form the "plaster"... Wrapped infected finger with clay mix. Let dry and washed off. Then assuming for caution sake the infection might also contain spores of fungus, also applied to dry surface, a powder form of anti fungal and held that in place with paper towel. Finally, a re application of the Clay / DMSO mix.

The point is the DMSO was used easily on child with no ill effects. Only helped. I also use DMSO on any sign of Bells Palsey, for instance....I mix DMSO fifty fifty with colloidal silver and apply on affected side with white paper towel. Only ten days ago I suddenly had a swollen forefinger on left hand. Out of the blue....couldn't figure why since I'd done no exercise/ yard work etc the day before....I used DMSO straight on swollen area. Worked the area and now days later no swelling. I found I could "move" the swollen joint and "pop" it in place. Almost no sensitivity now.

I'm just trying to point out all the times I use DMSO. Not weekly, but I bet I use DMSO eight or nine times yearly on myself, and have now for over three decades.

Watch on youtube, DMSO, dr Jacobs, sixty minutes and you'll find a great three part program on DMSO.

Pls help. I have been fighting scabies for 2 yrs now, 16 mos. with the help of this site, this wonderful site.I have them 'controlled ' on my body, but they are still present. in my scalp, I have them diminished, but not controlled.

Thyme Essential Oil   1  0   

Posted by Casey J (Perth, Australia) on 04/02/2008

[YEA]  Hi there, Using Thyme essential oil also works to relieve itches at night from Scabies. Thyme has a history of being used to treat Scabies too. Beware to get the real good quality thyme essential oil, i get mine from Young Living. The smell is strong so is the effect on the skin. may burn but its not that bad...if it stings too much - use a bit oil (Olive, sesame, any other etc) to soothe the burn if you are experiencing any of that

Toasted Flour   1  0

[YEA]  Biting mites

I have tried so many of the ideas on this site, and nothing helped. I finally took common flour and baked it in the oven until it turned brown, and applied it to my skin. It is healing my skin and the deep bruising of the bites are being healed. The first day, I applied olive oil and a coconut oil mix and then dusted myself with the "brown flour", and it worked.

Yes I smell kinda of like toast --but it is worth it, and it is working for me! Thank you. I think this is an olden day cure for skin problems that work. Bonnie

Vinegar   1  0   

Posted by Lucy (NY, NY) on 01/23/2009

[YEA]  Vinegar half & half water all over your body, note you will experience some sensitivity on skin, after rinse with vinegar, do a Peppermint Soap, like Dr. Woods, with anything else in the Soap is fine, an exfoliating soap also does the trick!, then put baby oil with Lavender all over your skin, everyday! Vinegar can also be used in laundering with hot water & ammonia mixed in... that will do, steam all your rugs, curtains, bed, pillows, then put plastic on the mattresses & pillows, then place your bed linen over, or the memory foam beds are totally resistant to all mites... trust me this will help, & eventually make your life free of those horrid creatures! God Bless & Good Luck!

Washing Soda   0  0   

Posted by Wecair (Moose Jaw, Sk., Canada) on 11/04/2009

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Hopefully this will be posted because it really seems to be working! December 08 I started getting lesions all over my legs, back and head. I went to see my doctor and was told it was scabies and prescribed 5% permethrin cream,an anti bacterial oral med and topical steroid ,did NOT work! Also tried Ivermectin paste for horses (out of desperation,3 times)I did get what seemed to be a reduction in lesions but even after 12 Permethrin treatments it kept coming back. Dermatolagist said I was healing... just quit scratching. I came across a scabies blog where people were getting great results with soaking a half hour in 1 cup washing soda, dissolving washing soda (1) in 4-1 water (4), no rinsing and spraying floors, furniture walls etc. To my astonishment after 2 treatments my lesions are healing quickly and I think we got a Winner! The results are so dramatic I could not wait to post this, even if this is not a cure (to early to tell)it is worth trying. good luck fighting whatever super scabie or morgellons this is.

This is a life altering pest. Now I check my skin daily for anything unusual. The doctors don't understand these little invisible monsters. I've tried the internal pill and the 5% cream. Here's what worked best for me.

1) Purchase over the counter Lice treatment (1% Permethrin), Nix or store brand, RID can burn.
2) Before bath cover head and neck with Sublimed Sulfur and Petroleum Jelly or Vic's Vapor Rub mix - avoid eyes and mucous membranes.
3) Mix Neem oil-cold pressed(10 drops), Eucalyptus essential oil(10 drops), 1 tablespoon of salt and Olive oil(1/4cup) then pour into hot tub and soak for a minimum of 30 minutes
4) While in tub gently rub an ex foliating brush from your toes to your neck to get the oil mix to cover your entire body. - If they are on your neck and head rub there as well.
5) Wash completely off with Peppermint Castle soap.
6) Dry off some but stay damp, rub in Nix from head to toe, leave on for 8-10 hours. During this time use a blow dryer on areas that itch. If you feel a burning sensation Wash off immediately.
7) Re-apply Nix a second time for another 8-10 hours and repeat steps 2-6.
8) Worn clothing should be placed in a plastic bag for washing in Hot water and adding 1 tablespoon of Borax w/ soap powder to each load
9) Iron clothing before wearing, wipe down everything you've touched with a damp hot rag and detergent, vacuum often/w heppa filter. Steam clean furniture and bedding.
10) If you see a spot on your skin start to itch and see a red dot you can also use Clove Bud Essential oil and a Que tip applied directly to the spot and hold for a minute. It kills the buggers dead. Be very careful with this oil, it will burn your skin.

I think I have scabies. Possibly from a new coworker, who is always using hand sanitizer. I stumbled on your site and found many helpful tips. I tried tea tree oil and other oils, and the borax peroxide soak, somewhat helpful. I also greased up overnight, even with petrolium jelly (what a mess), and could feel little frantic strugglings. But tonight I used lemon juice straight, with salt, even mixed up a little for dabbing (dousing), and found it to sting wonderfully. It also revealed the true track marks and infested areas. I just wanted to post and let people know that the two most common kitchen ingredients are very good at killing the mites. I will continue with sea salt soaks/borax also, and the nightly castor/olive oil (gave up on essential oils, roommate... ), and will finish the bath with a lemon juice wipedown. Also, spot killing with my lemon/peroxide/salt/water mixture. I also mixed up a spray bottle of non-chlorine bleach (apparently lemon juice/peroxide/water), and will continue to leave a bucket of bleachy (chlorox) water with a rag in it for cleaning my belongings and surroundings. Iwanted to tell people about lemon juice and salt, basically. Thanks for this wonderful site, and all the brave people contributing their stories.

So, I tried pure clove oil today on my stomach, and it burned but was ok. Then I put it on my shoulders and left it on for a few hours. It ended up burning me pretty bad... However, it seems to have done massive damage to their colonies or whatever they are. Also tried meat tenderizer and it really hurt the burns. My room is all wrapped in plastic bags and bleachy. outlook somewhat positive...

ok. real progress with salt today. I took a sea salt/borax/super washing soda bath with a little sulphur shampoo for twenty minutes, rinsed off and turned the shower off. Then applied sulphur shampoo all over and waited ten minutes. Then I rinsed that off and turned the shower off. Then I applied a mixture of salt, water, borax, and super washing soda and didn't rinse off. Then I went and did laundry in plastic bags. At night I am soaking with olive oil with a little castor oil or whatever. Tonight I might try mixing a little clove oil, but I'm still pretty burnt on my shoulders... I've been wondering if plastic bags might make things worse, and am considering using my dresser again (clean). Anyway, things are really starting to clear up, only a couple thin scabs on my stomach where it once was a big rash. My house has been sterilized fairly well, but I think my roomate is in denial and could slow this down. So, from clorox baths to lemon juice to borax to clove oil to salt and sulphur. We'll see... The winners are oil, salt, and sulphur/citrus. Good luck all.

so, I started taking a salt/borax bath (with a few drops of tea tree oil), and then rinsing off. Then taking meat tenderizer and mixing it with warm water and applying it all over and letting it sit. Ten minutes and rinse off. Next, sulphur soap ten percent, ten minutes and rinse off, warm water. Then, lemon juice all over, ten minutes and rinse off. Also, scrubbing with the green side of the dish scrubber. This seems to really kill them. I also have been using oil with a smaller amount of clove oil in waking hours. Leave it on as long as I can stand it. This seems to work also. I am also trying to get some 5% permethrin through some form of doctor. My other thing is sea salt dissolved in a spray bottle for all day body spraying. Things are getting a little better. I might try lice shampoo permethrin 1%, but I don't want them to build up resistance.

so, I started spraying myself with clove oil in water, which burns and makes me cold. It seemed to help. I also have been using lice shampoo. I just leave it on after drying after a bath. But tonight, I mixed up some sulphur powder with petroleum jelly, mineral oil, olive oil, and clove oil. I put this on after letting the lice shampoo dry. I also ordered 10% permethrin liquid from a pest control supply, hoping to mix it with petroleum jelly, and avoid doctors altogether. The sulphur cream I made is still on right now, and it feels pretty good, like it's working. Will keep updated. Also have been using meat tenderizer with water after (sea salt/borax/clove oil) bath for five minutes. Also straight lemon juice. then rinse.
