HI U GOD FEARING PEOPLE DOIN, , , , , , , ,

I am at my ropes end. As ya'll know I fought cancer and defeated that by natural means. I have fought demodex mites and they finally hit the trail. I am now doing a bout with a different kind of mite and this bugger is about to get the best of me. I went to an orthopedic doctor in Chattanooga about a month ago and he told me that my arthritic Knee was about a 5 on the scale of 10 and I would have to suffer through it. He gave me a Nisaid gel and when I used it, all heck broke loose.

It turned loose all the mites that I have harbored for a period of time. Since then the scabies has spread over my entire body and Bill and Ted's remedies are of little use. They are taking a knife to a gun fight. I have tried all the Big Pharma stuff and now am into double that and into the Farm Co-op stuff for your horses and that is twice the strength of what a doctor would give you. At 76, I have been down some dusty roads, but this is one of the most interesting.

When you read about what folks say who have these devils, you kind of laugh. Get these buggers and you will appreciate what they are going through. I am going to my family doctor Monday but he won't know dip sheet. I have been on the internet for two weeks and now I am going to the second strongest insecticide that you can use and still not die. My next insecticide is Malathion, and that will be from my garden stuff and not from Big Pharma. I will kill these mites and then detox from the insecticide that I had to use. In the old days they called this , the seven year itch, and now I know why it was called that. This itch will put you into a tall pine tree.

So when you read a cry from someone wanting help, don't laugh, but just be thankful that these things have not hit you yet.

I am an old Chemical Engineer and I know the dangers of insecticides , but I am convinced that is the only hope for this problem. It may be stupid, but it is not as stupid and chemo and radiation for cancer. Now, that is double stupid.

Wish me luck and if my radical stuff works I'll get back to you. Your ole wore out buddy.... ROBERT HENRY...

Since it's all-over, try one of the bath remedies, such as adding to the bathwater bleach, peroxide or borax. Also coconut oil slathered all over works well. Apply liberally as needed. For the first week or so, youl'll want to bathe about 30 minutes afterwards bc it really does wipe them out and bring them to the surface. You'll be able to tell because while the oil is working, they will show near the spots as black or grey flecks. This is just a thought, but I am wondering if a sauna would help. I got these real bad a few years back after accutane dried out all my membranes and gave me the flakies. Now, I use coconut oil locally (on the spots) to keep any recurrances under control.

Robert Henry, If the mites have a chitin layer, and a quick search seems to indicate that they do, perhaps consider Lukenuron, a safe to use, chitin inhibitor. It is harmless to humans and animals, does not let the mite, fea or even candida make the chitin layer that is needed for survival, thereby killing it. There is an overseas company that sells it, and soon a company in Mexico is supposed to start selling another safe version. The chemical name is Dimilin, but the Lufenuron version is pharmacy grade and safe. Best wishes!

How do you use the Dimilin on humans?

I used Lufenuron (aka Dimilin) to get rid of candida by inhibiting the chitin layer from developing, or weakening it. It is used on pets to rid them of fleas in the same manner. I bought one order that contained a small amount of Lufenuron (less than 1/4 Cup) and the directions say to take 1/3 per day for three successive days, mixed in mashed potatoes, applesauce or yogurt (or something similar) along with a high fat meal. It is stored in the fat cells and slowly released over a 2 week period. Since mites have a chitin layer, I am assuming it could work with them, as well. It is harmless and you can take several courses in a row without harm. (if you need to get rid of fleas and then the eggs, too) I think it is possible to have a herxheimer reaction as a result of the die off, but I did not. It was $27 per treatment. Best wishes!

I have had Scabies twice in my life. The first time it went on for years masked by oral and dermal steriods prescribed by arrogant Drs and Specialists who did a life time of damage without a moment's thought, or regard for me and my opinion or my person. What started as a simple mite infection turned into a train wreck disaster and I was sinking fast. By the time I trusted the truth it was so late in the game and the infection so wide spead. It was looking as if perhaps I would loose my hands. Not only was there a nation of Mites happily living under that crusted skin a mile thick where no medicine seemed to penetrate, there was the usual skin infection that often accompanies scabies When I finally decided I didnt have psoraisis, or exczema, chronic hives and allergies. I had scabies and it was unbelievbale what crusted scabies looks like when the steriods are removed and whats realling going on can be seen for the first time in years. I had them everywhere including ears, face and scalp. They do live there, why wouldnt they. By the time I said no more of this kind of Medicine, I'm not getting better I'm sicker then I have ever been and now I have no immune system to work with as the steriods wiped it out. I threw my life into the great Unknown, lept empty handed into the void, and began the road to Answers and Healing.

I went through thousands of dollars and broke the bank. I lost almost everything monetary you can think of. I lost my job, my home and then some. I was crippled spirtually and emotionally threw this and questioned almost everything I believe in. I have been prescribed risperdal by a renowned Specialist who just couldnt open his eyes or mind to the possibility that Medicine missed the boat on this one. That Nature and the Laws have changed since man started playing God and we now find ourselves in the mists of resistant Dis-Ease.

Heres what I know to be my Truth.

Scabies is Treatable. Scabies is Beatable. Even the most difficult cases can be cured. This can be undone.

I have studied and read, then applied much of what others have experienced on myself. I learned what works. What doesnt work. I learned how to take my Life back.

I am Grateful for this site and all those who have shared. My heart goes out to those who are caught in this struggle and I hope I can help. I will be documenting my own experience here for others to read and hopefully it will help others find there road to wellness. I am almost mite free now. It wont be years again this time I believe. I have an immune system this time round and I no this dance so well.

There are a million Meds that do not work. Natural or otherwise. There a alot of scoundrols who will happily rob someone while there desperate and so in need of Healing. Then there our those that will take the time and share where they have been and how they found there way to wellness. Simply because its the right thing to do. I know I would never have found my way threw this Dis-ease to the other side without the sharing of others that have gone before me. Now its time for me to give something back so others that come after me can find there way to the other side. And live in Wellness again. It is our God given right.

Down to 5 bites last night and time for my shower.

Thank God for Sulfur Sincerly D

This is more of just about curing scabies in general and not about a specific cure.

Hey Folks, I think Scabies has hit Epidemic/Pandemic levels.

Scabies is NOT an STD, it is extremely easy to contract. You can get it by sitting on the chair as someone that has it, you can get it by shaking hands, by hugging someone, even sitting on a toilet seat.
-- Think about it, scabies like to live in protected spots of our bodies, and really love the skin between our fingers because of that. So, anything you touch can become infected and then the next person that touches said thing can catch it.

IF you have scabies you need to notify your local health department and tell them that you think it is an epidemic! They might just try to tell you to get treated and not want to talk to you but DONT let them do that!
--Health departments need to start keeping track of outbreaks and notifying/educating the public in general about scabies!
**If you're worried about it being traced back to you, give a fake name when you call or email them from an email address you set up just for that purpose. (IT's what I'm doing)

To really stop scabies EVERYONE needs to be treated, this means you(A) everyone(B) that you've been in contact with, everyone(B) that has touched something you've been in contact with, everyone(C) that has been in contact with people/things from (B), everyone(D) that has been in contact with people/things from (C) and so on.

IF this doesn't happen people that treat themselves will just get it again.

------

My Story:

Like all of you here, I have scabies and like a lot of you, I've tried curing them without success. I've had them for a few years, tried treating multiple times and haven't been able to get rid of them. Either that or, I've been immediately reinfected by people around me.

I myself have a ton of shame around the fact that I've had it so long and not been able to get rid of it. I also have a ton of shame knowing that I've infected friends/family and random people around me even though I've tried to minimize my contact with people. I've massively cut down on my social life and spent the vast majority of the last few years in hiding. I just told an amazing man today that I can't have a relationship with him for 'personal reasons' because of these microscopic vampires.

Hell, I've been suicidal over it!!!

I'm quite frankly sick and tired of shaming myself over this and have decided to stop letting these pests run my life.

I've told friends, family and even written notes to clients (I work in private houses) saying whats up, the signs etc and out right had people say they didn't think they had it even though they obviously did. (IE: Animals CAN get it! Two clients had dogs that were itching like crazy, put on medication and the clients didn't believe me when I told them, even though I gave them links to info online from trusted sources).

Because of this I finally decided to contact my local health department and am going to force them to do something about it.

You should also!

Scabies? Around the end of November, my son and I went to stay the night with a friend. At the end of December I started a new job. About a week later my hands were severily Intensively ITCHY, Very Dry, and my Fingers And Knuckles Were Red with Whelps & lil bumps "like ant bites". I pretty much woke up like that every morning but when I got to work is when I would notice the whelps, so I assumed I was allergic to something. Then the bumps, itchyness & rashes started to occur on my wrist, then my arms.. Spread to my legs and top of my feet. My mom thought it was for sure bedbuggs But I didnt think so, because my son sleeps in bed with me & he was just fine! About A Couple Weeks Later I Noticed Him Getting Itchy And Getting Bumps! So put my son in the living room, I did my research on bedbuggs so I got the spray, blow dryer (for heat), & a car Vacume So I Can Suck them out of the cracks and corners... Well.. I found bugs alright! Little white worms! From food my son stuck under the bed!!! BUT I never seen any bedbugs... I sprayd my room anyway and bagged everything up, & got new sheets & me and my son started to sleep on the couch and taped the bedroom door so they couldnt move to other parts of the house. WELL, when I read up on bedbuggs it said they only bite you when your asleep and you cant feel them only the itchyness from the bite the next morning, and that they only bite where skin is not covered. your face, arms, legs, feet..

Well me and my sons itchyness increased, more bumps, rashes, sores from scratching, feeling them crawling on us alll the time not just at night. Just got worse, from the neck down. even unexpected places: He has bumps and blotches of rash around his genitals, I have them on both of my areola's as well as my inner tighs, and we both have it on our buttox, backs & abdomen as well.

my itch is HORRIBLE!!! But I know because my son is younger that he is suffering more, I dont sleep maybe for an hour or two a night, and my son wakes up through the night itching because at night it increases a lottt more! It calmed down on my son he has so many bumps that thats all you pretty much see, on his back, and abdomen. On his stomach he started getting a rash with these tiny red bumps which made it look even worse, and they have been bitting at his wrist, fingers, arm pits, waste line & inbetween fingers, on his knuckles and inside his hand ALOT more lately. So I did research and it kept coming up scabies.. I read ALOT of diff. peoples stories, as well as googling symptoms & pictures & all.

it said where they are known to be, and how they look from a naked eye, too small to see but looks like a little black spec.. And I looked inside of my sons belly button after I gave him a bath & seen couple lil black specs, I used my nail to get one out & put it on my nail to see it & you could tell it was not dirt; it looked like a super tiny lil flea! Too tiny to tell exactly but you could notice leggs coming out of the black spec. bearlyyy but visual enough to me.

as for the burrows, I am not sure exactly if I can point them out even if I did see them, because he has so many scratches and rashy bumps.

I am pretty positive that SCABIES has been the problem of all this hell that me and my son have been going through. Now im on the search for a cure to get rid of these suckers!!

today (feb. 24, 13) out of no where I got a huge rash, starting from the back of my knee down to the bottom of my calf, with a horrible stinging sensation ; feels as if I burnt it!!

me and my son both soaked in a tub containing: hot water, organic oatmeal, & a little tea tree oil for him and quite a bit for me. (because ive never used it I didnt want him to end up breaking out if he was allergic or something)... I let him soak for 30 mins & I soaked for an hour. While soaking I felt awsome! Up untill about 45 mins into it lol I started feeling a lil itch here and there, but when I got out it wasnt long untill we were itching up a storm again!! I know the itching stays for a while, so im not going to say it didnt work just yet. im going to do the oatmeal baths with tea tree oil everyday for this whole week & see if it improves! Hopefully it works because this has been hell!!! & I cant hate myself enough for knowing my son is going through this at 4 years old.

I feel for all of you that have to deal with this & I hope that you all find a cure that works for yall soon!

p.s this has seriously been one of the worst experiences I've even had to go through.. may god bless me & my son as well as yall with a cure. amen!

For scabies, take PSORINUM homeopathic remedy. It will do away with it in half an hour. Strength is 30C. You can order it from a good health food store or phone a homeopath and ask where you can get it. Cost $8 or thereabouts. It has helped me. First I had gone to an allopathic doctor. He gave me a medicine which, when applying, made my aura black! (this happens also to plants when given pesticides). When I read the info. of the package, I nearly got a fit! It can cause cancer! It cost $80!!!

You can also buy colloidal silver water and sponge your entire body. In my experience no bug on or under the skin can survive this remedy. For bedbugs it is unequalled. Hey, you'll both be fine. Om

My son and i have been taking a hot bath with oatmeal, & tea tree oil also adding a little peppermint body wash. it was calming our itchyness to an extent & i put petroleum jelly on us before bed time, my son was able to actually sleep!! well yesterday i decided to add some vinegar; & let me just say that was a huge mistake!!!!! we itched all night and today we are itching like crazyyyy!!! not to mention we woke up with more red itchy bumps!!!! my son: on his knuckles, inside of his hand, up his neck (which wasnt happening before) & between his fingers! and now he keeps scratching his head!!!! and me: around my ankles, bottom of my legs, my thighs, & between my fingers.

im thinking that the vinegar made things increase? im sticking with the petroleum jelly though, & use gloves on our hands all day and tape around feet and ankles and i will be trying new things as well to see what works, i wont give up untill these things are gone!!!

Hi, I have been reading every single post on scabies cures as I got them from my future step mother and I was really going through hell with these things!

I took the permithrin and it didn't appear to be working as they cleared and seemed to come back in my backside within the week. I took more and more (as I was worried about infecting people) and it seemed to keep them at bay, I then took ivermectin tablets first lot then 7 days later with permithrin(lyclear), we cleaned our flat everyday from the moment we realised, bagged our beds and furniture and bleached all day, let off 3 pemithrin bombs, washed everything and dried in hot dryer for min 30 minutes each day, washed clothes and soaked in tea tree oil and boiling hot water and washed toilet seat with bleach after every use. It cost a fortune! I seemed to be getting new nodules coming up on my behind again and on my arms. I was devastated. I then tried bleach baths with hydrogen pyroxide and then borax baths with hydrogen peroxide, and covered myself with clove oil and olive oil. The clove oil burned so badly it was terrible.

I then finally was referred to a dermatologist and he checked everything and said I didn't have scabies at all, by the way you cant see them at all, they are very very small and you can't see them running and they are not black, that must be something else, I was advised the new nodules coming to the surface and the severe itching as an allergic reaction to the permithrin, the sever itching and crawling feeling in my backside was also due to burning it with the soaks I was doing and the clove oil and the allergic reaction, so I stopped everything and then tried to repair my completely damaged skin. It is working, the bits I saw in the bath as I drained the water were dead skin cells, my backside is finally healing and I can now see where I have burnt it, and my nodules are disappearing. My major concern that the scabies weren't dying was incorrect, I had a severe allergic reaction to the permithrin and then I was burning my skin off with the bath soaks. I have been told the nodules may continue to show for up to a year as I have sensitive skin and I have damaged it so badly. I think I was going a little crazy and to be honest I was trying everything.

Once I stopped damaging my skin I have started to repair. My skin on my backside is now peeling off which is causing the itch. So please listen to your dermatologist, he has a microscope and could see if there were any burrows or scabies, there weren't, and I also had skin scrapings all on the new nodules that were appearing, all were clear and to be honest he was correct. the ivermectin tablets worked, so when you are diagnosed as clear, keep ensuring you clean thoroughly and ensure that you cant be reinfested. Do not visit people to infect them as it is just not a nice thing to do to anybody. And have hope that your skin is just repairing itself and has had an allergic reaction. I have read my story from 5 people on these forums, and I am hoping my story will help other people like me experiencing an allergic reaction to the pesticides to trust that you are free of these awful things and that you don't have to have bleach baths and burn your skin to get rid of them. Also tea tree oil did sooth the itch, but the clove oil has to be diluted as it burnt me so very badly.

Third week and three tubes of permethrin, last head to toe three days ago, I only have gone from couch covered in plastic with a new sheet everday to washing machine hot cycle to shower. Cleaned and then avoided touching everything at start. It's back. And each time it seems the cream stops it then three days later it doubles. Lost my faith in the doctor. God I hope the list of cures I found off this page will help. You all give me hope, itch itch itch, I will let you know what worked for me just saying, thanks aaahhhh, itch itch itch

Griffo Again, To all the people who have acknowledged thier experience I thank You. Reading through posts I would like to say please people be aware that once you have thoroughly cleaned everything and taken sleep with cream on nights it is dependent upon how long you have had the mungrel paracite under your skin before treatment as to how long the affect will last. As I am up to eight months with the paracite I now have small sand like pebbles coming out of my butt, upper thighs and stomache. Not a lot like earlier in the sufferring term but enough to create an annoying itch. I stand by natural oils more so than the chemical based creams available. Ive used Eucalyptus/citrus oil spray on sores after a tea tree eucalyptus citrus oil bath. As I was stubborn in my belief I had scabies and went too long before treatment I find now that most of my body was infested. The paracite debris is still coming out of me but not at the grose level it was earlier. I am of the belief your skin needs to dry and die before the paracite debris exits your body. Such a horrible feeling but I believe it's fact. Therefore if many have bred under your skin before treatment (ie. lyclear)expect a long term of skin irritation while the paracite debris exits your body.

I experienced more sand like pebbles and smallish bumps arising many times after a bath where I rubbed my whole body with a course flannelette. Spraying eucalyptus and citrus oil on the affectted areas stung but did kill the itch many times. Im so glad it is nealy over. The other day I experienced a burst of blood coming from two snake bite like holes on my fore arm. This area has turned into a small rectangle area with tiny red dots making up the rectangle. DEBRIS EXITING.... Hurry the hell up I say... Nearly there nearly there... nearly there.

I again thank all the sufferring people who have offerred their experiences and do hope my information has helped someone.

My only question now is "What can bring back skin colour to the healed scabie sore scar tissue areas?"

Posted by Roses (Tulsa, Ok) on 09/19/2011

I have used all the suggested thing to cure scabies. Some helped but most did not cure. I have had allergic reaction to some of the treatments such as too much bleach.

To change the PH balance and make my body uninviting to the pests, in desperation I used bottled lemon juice. Real lemon juice undiluted, right from the bottle. To be easier to apply poured it into a covered container and keep in the refrigerator. Oh, feels so good cold to sooth the itching. Would take my shower then after drying off. Use a clean wash rag soaked in the juice to totally wet my body down then allowed to air dry. Did this morning and night for two weeks, also vacuumed and washing bedding and clothes daily. Was mostly free of pests in 3 days but continued just to be sure. I have had scabies 5 times and my Dr says it is a pH imbalance problem so now I eat very little sweets, white flour products and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Sure don't want this again.

Hi all, I hope this helps someone. I am tramatised in Philly and have been battling this SCABBIE mite for 3mos. I used a few things in conjunction. First know your enemy this mite likes to nest in paper, anything poreous(sp)curtains, rugs, books, unfoRtunatly humans, as we who are suffering know. So trash anyhing in your house made of these substances, it especially likes to lay eggs in your bedding. I threw out almost all of my belongings and minimized everything. I went to kmart and bought twin fold out iron bed frame(100 bucks) and a swiss blow up mattress (43 bucks) one allergy fitted mattress cover to protect against microscopic pest. I purchased xtreme clean, medicated wash and salve and pest dust from Q base solutions on line. The dust should be fine mist throughout your home, it smothers the mite and strips its skeleton and that of its eggs, I also put it on my body to smother any emerging mite. Neutrogena acne prone skin body wash and scrub has acid in it and I found that it flattens out those bumps and heals the skin. Use vitamin e oil to help repair skin. Eat as much fresh cloves of garlic as you can stand because it is a natural anti parasitic and it will also help to fight off infections. Eat alot of fruit and veggies for the vitamin c to keep your immune system up, its needed against this bug, Wash all your bedding and clothing everyday. If you can, after a bath coat yourself with petrolium jelly and add tea tree oil which kills their egg cycle to keep them from breeding in your home. Fine mist that dust in your bedding too and on all hard surfaces(not too much because you dont want them walking on it) you want to choke them out. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!!!!! dO NOT TRASH ITEMS UNTIL YOU GET THE DUST, if you disturb any of their nest they may come after you and you want to protect yourself. Use the dust in your car because the mite goes where you go. I hope to God that this helps someone.

Hello, formerly panicked in Philly here. Wanted to share with my fellow comrades. One, purchase lice/egg and killer and spray down your carpets and bedding and furniture to kill scabie mite. I was told by a pharmacist that it works just as well on killing the scabbie mite. Second, if your itching like crazy and you feel them everywhere on your body but you have no new bumps on tracks then there is more than a good chance that you are suffering a form of post traumatic stress as I was. This is not far fetched because the experience of this mite is so horrific that it may take some time until you accept that its really over. It took me 3trips to the E.R. and my final trip to the dermatologist (today) to convince me that there was nothing crawling all over me. I left a inchoherent, grammatical mess of a post on this site lastnight because as I typed I felt the creepy crawlies all over me. It was all in my head. Period. I sprayed the house down with the Rid lice killer just to be on the safe side. To those who REALLY are going through it, you have my deepest sympathies and prayer. DON'T DO YOURSELF BODILY HARM!!! Keep fighting and eat plenty of garlic to fight off possible infection. I endured the anguish of this creepy critter and understand. GOD BLESS YOU.

Scabies. OMG! This has me so depressed! To hear that some people have had these for a year? My boyfriend lives in sandy soil and I first thought it was sand fleas. Boy was I wrong. He stays in motels for work and I truly believe this is where it came from! I am embarrassed to tell him. But I will tonight. We have not seen each other for a month so I wonder what he will think. This has been going on for about a month now. It's driving me insane, but I finally went to the Dr. and he prescribed Eurax cream rubbed over entire body and left on for 48 hours (no bath). It's gross! I think my house is infected so tonight I intend to go on a cleaning mission. I have leather couches and when you sit on them you can feel the mites jumping you. What to do there? I think my mattress is infested as well. I have sprayed with bleach. Also is there anything I can put in my steam cleaner to help kill these creeps? I itch constantly at work and am afraid and embarassed that my coworkers will get it! I need to do something in my office without drawing notice. I have gotten some really good info from this site and will try whatever! Thanks guys soooo much. It makes you feel so unclean.

orange oil. you can put some drops into your bath water and soak in it. also mix it into a carrier oil and rub it all over your body. olive oil or coconut oil would work as a carrier oil. you can also add a bunch of drops to water and shake it well and spray your house.

Orange oil: I am using orange oil today. I put it on after I had a bath (with tea tree and coconut oil in it :) ), and used coconut oil as the carrier. It smells SO good. SO much better than some of the more smelly remedies. Orange with clove oil smells like Christmas omg just use a carrier oil like coconut, almond or olive bc clove oil is extremely strong. I got mine online from the big vitamins company that starts with a P, buy 2 get 3 free. It is definitely keeping them quiet and smells yum.

In response to the question of what you may be finding on your skin and in your bed that resembles tiny white grains:

You could be finding one or both of 2 things...

skin cells: every thirty days your skin "cycles" (for lack of a better word) all skin cells are sloughed off and replaced by the cells beneath it. It takes approximately 30 days for your deepest dermal layer of cells to reach your epidermal layer to be discarded.

eggs and parasite corpses: the above mentioned cycle also effects anything IN your skin layers. If you try a treatment and the creatures and eggs are killed, they are still there... and you will still itch until the "remains" are cycled. As the the new skin cells are forming, they push the older cells toward the surface. The surface cells die and fall off, are washed of, and even scratched off (as is the case with scabies). When the dead scabies and their eggs reach that top layer, they are "exfoliated" with the dead skin cells.

That is why you will continue to itch even if your treatment DID kill the parasites.
It also could very well explain what you're finding on your bed.
Since you know you have scabies and are using treatments (I assume) your epidermal layers of skin may be reacting to the treatments by dying which would cause excess exfoliation (think dandruff).

It is unfortunate that you haven't been able to get rid of the parasites... it seems that not only are you dealing with the allergies to the presence of dead parasites, but the condition is perpetuated. I seriously think you should have EVERYTHING about your life checked. For example, I work at a nursing home.... THAT'S where I picked up MY hitchhiking vampire mites. A condition of a resident that has had scoriasis since she was 15 years old was ignored (nurses and doctors even argued with me about it) and she has passed it not only to me and nearly every other resident on the unit I work on, but my 2 year old and my 5 year old.

I had gotten rid of them, and then the resident got transferred from another unit to my unit and she brought them with her.

Please don't ignore scabies!!! If think you can live with the itch, that's all well and good but scabies can cause skin infections from the scratching and the fecal matter. Skin infections cause liver and kidney problems!!!!!

Those pieces of sand can also feel like glass, I've experienced those as well as seen black dots and tiny mites, I presume its all the same crap. I've been battling this for years. I think its gone but it isn't. It just shows up in another area. Its working on my ears and causing my lobes to swell up. At one point my ear looked like it was encased in a slippery looking skin. I've tried sulpher mixed with cream, bad reaction. I use borax in bath, helps keep me somewhat free, but tons of brown age spots, which I believe are result of the horrible mite. I use pine needle oil mixed with a carrier oil and it helps, also take wild yam herb another known scabies killer. I'm going to buy the cream and apply to skin, particulary ears. And use pinesol cleaner, it really works, but, its a tiresome job, My other next purchase will be silicone cream and Results lice killer to apply to head and skin. Learned about it on British website, called Full Marks. God Bless in your endeavors and give you favour in finding freedom from this nasty menace.

Kleen Green works. Google it. It is an enzyme spray that dissolves their hard shells. I got some a couple weeks ago. You need to take shower and then dry off well. To one ounce of the Kleen Green add 7 ounces of water. Spray everywhere, all body crevices including your naval, ears, nose, genitals, (because if they can hide out they will.) Leave the spray on for thirty minutes, it is worth it, just stand there in the tub. Use the spray all over your hair too. You can leave this on. It is totally safe. It is organic and only made with 4 enzymes.

BUT you have to do this twice a day, along with washing all your bedding, clothes etc...

Make sure you also bathe your pets with it. They can also carry this and then you get it back again and it keeps on going.

[YEA]  I have written here before thinking I had found relief from scabies only to find again that they were still around. I used many of the ideas on Earthclinic. It is almost a year ago now that I started using a hair dryer on the scabies and it is amazing as soon as you start. I haven't found any scabies in months but I worry every time I itch and I just use the hairdryer. I use it as hot as possible till I can't stand the heat or burn feeling. I read from a person on this site about that idea first and it made sense. As soon as I did this the redness or aliveness faded. It works fast, you just have to get all the places and then of course there is the clothes and house cleaning. Good luck with these horrible little "animals". This works great!

Homeopathy: Psorinum 30   1  0   

Posted by Bangalorean (Bangalore, India) on 01/08/2011

[YEA]  yea for Psorinum 30

After trying borax for another 2 months, laundry, bathing, etc. For the outbreak of mange in my area, and finally I developed scabies myself in the first week of December. I'm glad of it because I have found a better way to heal mange and scabies (cured 1 dog that was completely blackened and hairless and myself).

I read Peter Morell's PSORINUM http://www.homeoint.org/morrell/articles/pm_psori.htm and followed his protocol of 1 dose of psorinum 30 and to wait 2 months.

The first 5 days the itching was intolerable but within 9 days the scabs dried up. I got patches of scabies around my joints throughout the first month but without much itching.

I recommend this cure since it healed me and a dog already (he's already got most of his hair back) and please read to the end about surface cures, topical creams and aggravations.

Hi Cm from Wilmington, in Homeopathy 2 "pellets" or tablets are usually considered a dose. That being so I presume that Bangalorean from Bangalore means take two Psorinum 30c pellets and then wait and see! Please let us know how you are getting on in a couple of weeks.

Any other advice on this treatment for scabies? I had never heard of Psorinum 30 before and would love to hear from others that have had success with it as how long it should take to work, when you should take it and with what or not to take it with???

Cm and Jo, Sorry for not replying. Yes, 2 pellets of Psorinum 30c or 30x is more than enough for 2 months. Then you can repeat it. Acts as a preventative too. I've healed about 6 dogs with scabies with Psorinum 30.

I've had a few problems with moving up to Psorinum 200 (as Peter Morell suggests) that I'll explain:

1. Psor 200 brings up very deep aggravations of hidden diseases. If they're cancerous or have a systemic infection or failing organs, you'll see their entire body throws it out onto the skin, conditions which last for months. I've come to feel a dog's life is so short that there's no justification for going deeper.

2. Psorinum has an amplified effect in the fall. It is a very powerful remedy working for months on end so be warned.

Just stick with a couple of doses of Psorinum 30 spaced 3-6 months apart and the hair should grow back easily. Don't go higher unless you have a homeopath to advice.

[Slightly long, sorry] Cm from Wilmington, Nc asks: "Any other advice on this treatment for scabies?

Re: other advice on the treatment of scabies - as soon as Psorinum does its work, if the hair isn't back, you'll notice that another homeopathic miasm, the Syphilitic miasm, rears its ugly head. Some dogs seem to inherit it at birth which is responsible for the bone and nervous disorders (incessant biting, itching, barking, irritability, restlessness), black patches, rupia, sores and eczema that accompany scabies. You can approach a good homeopath or go very carefully through the symptoms and treat it with Kali iod 6x, Aur met 6x and Nitric Acid 6x.

The way I recognise the Syphilitic miasm is by the waxing and waning of the symptoms with the moon cycle - its at its worst on full moon and a few days before a thunderstorm.

I'm beginning to think that this syphilitic tendency is the primary cause that draws the fleas, mites and fungus to the body (parasites after all can't live on a healthy host). Removing the parasites without removing the primary destruction is pointless.

Psorinum clears the case if it is simple or else shows the way to the deeper problem.

I hope that helps.:)

[YEA]  For years I've tried everything that I could find that was non-toxic to annihilate my scabies. I was desperate -- just as desperate as those here whose posts I've seen. I tried the peroxide with borax and it did not help. But the grains of borax helped by being abrasive. Finally found sulphur powder. Mixed it with either eucerin moisturing cream and another batch with petroleum jelly. Again only temporary relief. Okay, two days ago my inner thighs were so chafed and sore that I applied an ointment which was of a mix Vitamins A and D in petroleum jelly. Bought at CVS. Just to fight the soreness, but I reached for the Vicks. Those things must have overlapped, this was my final attack for that night. I got up and did whatever needed doing around the house, and when I began ironing and felt the itch I took a cloth, rested my iron on the cloth -- it was VERY warm (hot) and I put it against the itch. Over and over I used a supply of washcloths that way. It proved to be the final blow to this curse.

I'll never really know if the vicks, the A & D ointment that began the end of the scabies, but I have seen a straight 24 hours that increased to 48 hours with no itch. Or if I itched I hit it with yet another hot cloth --- Do I dare feel cured? Desperation will push you to do unconventional things. And yes, I did plug the iron in and had it near my bedside. And yes, when what was left of the population kicked up at 2AM, I put on my light, turned the iron up, rested it onto a cloth and hit the itch with it and the thing came to a complete stop. This has been ongoing for now two almost three days. I've put away the things set up here that made my areas look like a laboratory. The clove oil, the various mixes of sulphurs, the rubber gloves for wiping down all plastic coverings with bleach, the diatomaceous earth, the dishes with a concoction of clove oil- d. Earth - moisturizing cream. Clove oil is caustic enough to eat into any mixing dish that isn't china or stone-ware. The inner peace at seeing my house look now as normal as before is healing itself.

My prayers were (and are) aimed at St Jude, St Joseph, St Anthony (dear St Anthony please look around my health is lost and cannot be found) . You've got to pray; man and his toxic concoctions made in labs are not always --- in this highly advanced age of moon shots etc ---enough, or might do it but leave you reeling from side effects. Not for me. Natural is always the best of options, first. Okay, the 'iron' isn't purely natural, but it sure seems to have been a good last resort at least for one who was sure there was only one way to rid myself of these: my death.

Do not put anything like metal onto your body ONLY A CLOTH THAT HAS BEEN MADE VERY WARM. I only say this because the desperation can drive us to the edge of madness. Terry is appropriate; like your washcloths. Not a thin cotton fabric. God bless you, one and all.

Hydrogen Peroxide   1  0

[YEA]  Hi, Like most I have found scabies to be a scary infection.

A thought first: First check the possibilty that it may be 'folliculitis' as scabies is often diagnosed incorrectly.

I scrubbed my large area of infection on the knee with neat conditioner (I use any unbranded name). They are better than the one that is head and shoulders above the rest for infections. I use neat conditioner for most things especially eczema.

This cleared the area of surface critters. However, I notice there often isn't a distinction between 'I'm free of them' to 'I'm free of the infection underneath the skin'.

The following is not for the faint hearted. I can only say this is what I did and not saying do it.

I poured a very small amount of 33% peroxide into a small glass. I then add a little water. The mixture was very powerful, way beyond 10%.

With a cotton bud I rubbed into the infected burrow lines till they opened and whoosh the peroxide just killed everything. The process was so painful that I thought I couldn't bear it but I keep pushing the bud. The off white residue was hard so I washed it down. Later, I repeated the process on the missed areas.

I can always tell if there is any infection under the skin because if I press an area it feels like a pin sticking in me. My knee looked like I had fallen on gravel that cut deeply into my flesh.

At last the infection had gone. Now I am recovering and applying simple balms to the sores. There is no scarring of 'burnt' areas.

Hydrogen Peroxide, Anti- Itch Cream, Whitening Toothpaste   1  0   

Posted by Jason (Newport News, Va, Usa) on 08/29/2012

[YEA]  I have had the 'bug' for almost 7 months before locating this site. When my symptoms first appeared, I was unsure if I was just losing my mind. I went to the doc's and they had no idea at first.... (odd if you think about it..... Med school for 12 yrs to open a business called a "Practice"). I didn't feel like being a guinea pig, but the itch was unbearable! I've read many of the articles/comments from others and came to the conclusion something was going to done soon. The "bleach/peroxide" cure didn't pan out, the "oils" were just too costly, And all the others were just a "hocus pocus" form of treatments. I did some more reasearch, spoke to a few peeps and was steered in the right direction after spending countless hours awake scratching till I bled at night!

Heres the cure:

1.CLEAN WITH WARM SOAP AND WATER

2. APPLY PEROXIDE TO AFFECTED AREA

3.APPLY AN ANTI-ITCH CREAM (allow time to penetrate skin)

4..........................................................

......THEN APPLY WHITENING TOOTHPASTE TO AREA!

I know this sounds crazy! But after doing this for 3 days the symptoms associated with the 'scabies bug' ceased! The itch is gone, the healing happens rapidly, and I can sleep at night again!

After you've applied the toothpaste to the area, be sure to leave it on until the next day. Wash it off with warm water and soap. Re-apply at night and follow process for a few days. You'll be amazed at the results!

After going to the doctors numerous times for them to prescribe me.... Cures...... which never worked and cost me a fortune, this is a cheap cure for scabies!

Let me think about the costs....hmm...

Permethrin Cream..$120

toothpaste......$3

Permethrin is crap and costly! Doctors know nothing! They pump you full of drugs to see which works best!

This is a cure for me...... Toothpaste........ A whitening paste! You have a cool, tingling sensation after applying it, and sleep like hound dog!

Try it and add comments to this lovely and 'cheap cure for scabies'!!!!!!
