On the topic of scabies, Diatomaceous earth works wonderful. Use one cupful in bath water and soak for while covering all parts of body. When you get out of bath just pat dry to leave as much DM on the body as possible. Use the food grade. It can also be used for internal parasites. I have used it for 6 yrs on my dogs, goats, mule, chickens and even taken it myself. It works to get rid of mites on chickens and scale mites on their feet . Research this for more info.

Diatomaceous cured my scabies : After being diagnosed w/scabies and given Permethrin, which made me very ill, I tried Neem,tea tree oil,kerocene! all kinds of things till I remembered I had Diatomaceous Earth DE fossil Shell Flour ( food grade ) in my house ,I used to use it on my cats for fleas until switching to a topical for less trouble.I decided to completely dust my enviroment and body w/ it to see if that worked! DE kills mites of all kinds by acting like ground glass inside them destroying their innards, but is safe to humans and pets, make sure you get the FOOD GRADE and not the one for pool filters which is dangerous! Get a large winter type sock with loose weave, fill it w/ the fossil flour and walk your house patting it, you will see it clouding and falling to the floor, use on furniture and any places you freguent often, like your PC. I dusted my comforter on both sides good, to keep from washing it all the time! Same for pillows although mine are in sealed garbage bags. Last try to keep yourself dusted from scalp to soles of feet for at least a week,a ll crawling sensations will disappear along with biting, from here on in I'm keeping my house dusted as the fine film blends in on carpet and furniture, in case of other types of mites. Neem is still a good shampoo additive, one dropper full to your handful of regular shampoo,well Good luck to all.

This sounds like what i wanna try. So it is totally harmless to rub all over yourself and sleep in it? How long should i leave it on? Can it be purchased at a farmers co op or the home depot? Are you fully cured? How much should i buy? Anyone else have sucesss with this?

To Helpplz: I buy mine at a feed store, 50 lbs for $21.00. It's real name is Diatomite Silica. You can buy it at nurseries and garden centers, too, but for far more expensive. We drink ours. I don't have hot flashes when I drink it. I took several tablespoons twice daily, and the next day the flashes quit. I vacationed in the Carribbean without air conditioning for two weeks, and the flashes still didn't happen.

I also quit having gluteal hamstring pulls--I have no idea why they quit the day after I began taking the silica. I'd had them for 5 years previously, as long as I'd been running. However, four months ago I changed my running form from heel strike to forefoot strike, and the hamstring pulls never recurred, even without my taking silica. Strange, but my knees and ankles quit hurting when I changed form, too.

When I quit taking silica, however, my hot flashes returned.

I can't tell what else silica did for me because I am not aware of having any other health problems.

DE is great, the itching was horrible and got rid of my mites/scabies in a day, was wonderful! Can't express enough how amazing this stuff is for this and other health benefits. We take Incect Dust 100% DE found it at our local garden center. Just to list a few other things it helped us with... More energy, great poops, husband has hair growing in areas that were receeding, his hair does not look as grey, He no longer has a big belly, he has lost weight, no lower back, shoulder or knee pain, have not had other pains he was taking handfuls of ibuprofen for on a daily basis, no longer taking allergy med's, no more antacids and we eat spicey foods daily, skin and nails look better and grow fast! We do not have the morning smokers cough either. Give it a try, the itching will stop and you will be soooo relieved and you'll love the other benefits too:) We are currently taking 1 to 2 Tbs of this daily and have been for 4 months now, we mix it with V8 Splash (stir well) and drink it down in a shot, rinse glass with cold water and drink what remains in the cup.

Hi, thank you for your diatomaceous earth information. I wondered if after the post you noticed further health benefits. I am thinking of starting DE as you have and am a bit frightened of it.

Thank you,

I bought some of this from amazon, and have been searching the internet on how to use it.

Scabies are driving me crazy and have turned me into a nervous wreck as I'm so worried about giving to my family (who seem to be clear so far), and also about how many people I may have infested so far.

I've been spraying 3% hydrogen peroxide on me, which felt great and relieved the itch, but I'm not convinced it's actually killing anything. Also my skin is reacting to it in a bad way as I use it more and more.

I'm going to give it a go with the DE and a sock. Great idea! I will post back with how it goes.

This will work however, it does not take only a day to work. I did the same sock trick, filled with DE and beat it around the place. I sprinkled it into the carpet and beat it in using a flip flop. It cuts and dehydrates the bugs however it can take days before they die and may not reach unhatched eggs. For the eggs I reccamend a combo of clove and neem oil. The clove will melt the eggs and been Will inactivated eggs and intermediate larva if not destroyed by the clove oil.

After mixing both oils in lotion, let dry. Then when completely dry apply the DE and rub it in. During this time times when you shower, you should be scrubbing with sulfur soap and allowing it to remain unwashed off on the skin, for a min of ten min. Do not skimp on the time. Ten full min or more then completely wash off. Grisi is the brand of the 10% sulfur soap.

Also most importantly, many come here looking for advise and may assume they have a condition when they may not. I've seen people who did not know they had bed bugs complained to their derm about scabies or other single infections. Keep in mind there are a variety of mites also the have very different habits of existence. Some living in the skin, in the environment and longer than expected without food supply. See a doc if you can. If not, do your self a favor and research and get feedback from a trusted friend or loved one.

I buy DE online, it's cheapest. You can also buy it in the stores locally like health food stores and feed stores. I also buy my DE at the Tractor Trailer Supply Store. They also sell horse paste that people use for scabies but don't tell them you're buying it for yourself. They sell other things there that will help kill your mites. I buy the grey animal type of DE, it's not refined. I use it for my environment and my dog and my body. Internally I use the whitish type which is refined and for human intake and externally. The animal type you can consume too and it's a better quality but it seriously tastes like dirt. I can't drink or eat it. Gross!

I have been using Sharon's treatment below from 2009 for just over 36hrs, used the 3/4 cup DMSO (70% DMSO - 30%Purified water), 1 Cup water, 1 Tablespoon (35%) Peroxide & 1 extra Cup water (mixed with peroxide to dilute before adding to DMSO & water) added mixture to spray bottle and set to work. Found this recipe late evening, applied two applications before bedtime. Applied every 2 hours next day, the first 3 - 4 application there was scabies coming out of the skin immediately to escape certain death, some even climbed hair follicles. Now at 36hrs only have occasional scabies coming out of the skin.

This is my second bout of scabies in 4 years, I was advised that once you have had them your body is more susceptible to contracting them again for some reason. The first bout lasted for nearly 12mths before killing them off, I even tried 3 lots of Lyclear scabies cream without success back then.

This recipe has been a blessing day 2 and scabies nearly all gone.

scabies is cured!!

My mom and I hd been fighting these scabies mites for 4 years now. Came from chickens she bought from a farmer. We tried everything, and thank god for earthclinic and Ted's recommendations, but still no permanent cheap relief as I was unable to treat the beds and get em all killed. After spending $3000 on a sleep number bed,I couldnt just replace it. However--My mom called me up and told me that spraying hydrogen peroxide solution on herself all over killed the things. I had found it at walmart listed as non-chlorine bleach with a pink label. I tried it and was a little disapointed, maybe 70% results. I figured I had not treated everything in my house properly. Also, I was reading about DMSO. I read where the DMSO goes deep into the skin and you had better be clean where you apply it or it will take the dirt down deep with it. So, I mixed 3/4 cup DMSO, 1 cup water and 1 cup peroxide bought at wal-mart into a spray bottle. Its called non-chlorine bleach with a pink label next to the regular bleach. BINGO, instant kill rate even below the skin. I had to treat the really big spots for a couple of days until they dried up. Now I had the perfect spray for me, my bed, my car, my long haired dogs. Its a miracle. I recommend treating your whole body every day until you have no more spots as they will crawl out of a small "kill zone spray" if you dont add enough DMSO. I put in less (1/4 cup )DMSO and it didnt kill as fast, but still killed em. No smell either. Been 3 weeks now and on those in my family who used it, it works great. I have one family member in denial. however, even so, I can still treat his stuff without the big fight over the smell of the sulfur I was using.

I have a question about your DMSO and hydrogen peroxide treatment. I have heard that Dmso smells like garlic gone bad . Would really like to try it. We are at the point where we are almost cured ...but not quite. My boyfriend insist that he does not have them becsuse he does not itch and I have to throw a fit to get him to do a neem, lavender,orange, and tea tree whole body shampoo every other day. So I doubt I could get him to try something that smells worse. Thanks for your efforts.

DMSO is really quite mild compared to Neem oil. I don't know what percentage of Neem is in the body wash you are using, but to be honest, straight Neem oil is about the vilest stuff I have ever smelled.

Re: Diatomaceous Earth for external parasites on animals

I've used D.E. for years (11 ), to get rid of fleas on our dogs & cats, & lice on our livestock. I sprinkle it right on the animals & rub/brush it in really well - & then also sprinkle it liberally around their "loafing areas". We sprinkle it around our entire house during "flea season" & it makes a huge difference in the flea population issues that you just can't avoid during certain weather & when you have a zillion animals like we do, LOL. It does take longer than the noxious chemicals, but it does work!

I having been viewing Earth Clinic for about a year now looking for more information on scabies. We have had a severe infestation for about 1 1/2 years now. My husband came home with a hunting dog a friend gave him. He told him it had red mange but it turned out to be sarcoptic mange, we were clue-less. Anyway all of our dogs caught it, we have 9. We used the borax and peroxide to start with because I never use chemicals on our dogs, even thier shampoo is all natural. As for the humans in the house, I have been covered with scabies from the start the boys and my husband have bites but nothing like me(is there a reason for this?). The guys took over all the animal care to keep me away from the bugs but I still get them off the laundry and if one of them come anywhere near me after they have been around the dogs, the bugs get on me! This has been a nightmare for over a year now. The family Doctor put us on permethrin cream and the Vet had the dogs on tac-tic (very poison!) We had been using the cream for months and the dogs had went to pro-late, sulfur dips and others, all poison. I have had dogs very sick for treatments and we have twitching eyes and just feeling ill and the last Doctor visit were givin Stromectol (thats ivomec for people). I have tried for months to figure out why we were unable to get rid of these things!!! My Vet and Dr both were treating us and the dogs but no one ever said anything about our horses and cattel!!!! Also mice rabbits and other varmints that may be here and there. My husband has been setting live traps for a week now and has caught 8 opossums just around the barn at night. We had no idea, neither have ever had mange or scabies and don't know a thing about them. Recently I found something that has worked better then anything else I have used. This is the first time in over a year that the front of my legs and thighs and my face have been clear! I would like you to check it out, I think it can help alot of people. I did have one problem with it, I was carrying a small spray bottle around with me so if I felt a bug on my face I could spray it (it would stop it dead in its tracts) but my face and other tender parts of my skin were getting a little raw, I looked sunburned. I was using it alot more then I really needed to but I could not take these bugs running across my face and getting in my ears anymore. Its a pesticide-free formula that contains enzymes from plant sources. It kills head lice too. I found it at my health food store. I don't want to give the name but I have never seen it in any of my web surfing. They do have a web sight www.s-e-a.net you can check it out and decide if you want to share this with others on your site. This stuff has been wonderful for me, its giving me my life back. I don't sell it and have no interest in it other then using it. I really hope this can help others, its been a long horrible journey for me!!!

Hello. I came upon this site hoping to find some more remedies for scabies, particularly an oral treatment. I've read through the various replies, and it looks as though some of the commenters do not have scabies, because animals cannot carry the parasite (from the numerous articles I've read anyway). Anyway, I've had them for a few years, and mostly used the lice poison found at the supermarket. It helped somewhat, but it's poison! So I looked and found a product called Lice R Gone that worked. It's an natural enzyme that eats away at their exo-skeleton. The only problem I am having is that I have them on my foot, and it's a bit difficult to get through some of the tough skin, and even one small missed are will cause an outbreak eventually. It was cheap, it smelled pleasant, and very effective. Once my foot is cleared up, I'm done! Hope you all find relief!

To those of you who think mites cannot be transferred between humans and animals, I'm sorry, they can. We got our initial infection from some chickens-not a scabies mite, but a rat mite according to the lab at University of Texas who tested ours. There appears to be some mis-labeling due to the spread of different kinds of mites. Also, keep in mind that your local vets and docs do not know how to deal with the unknown mites- they are only used to what their books tell them. You cannot see them without the aid of bi-focal glasses a good magnifying glass. This type of rat mite lived in some washed blankets I had stored in my huge closet for over a year! When we got them out the next winter,we were all itching like mad in less than 30 min. and had to get up, strip everything and take a shower. They have killed my mom's parrot (ate thru his ears into his brain), and my sister's dog (infested a cat bite in his throat and the vet said it looked like a tumor, only 2 months after the bite). When my mom got tested, they sliced a piece of her infected abdomen skin. Under the microscope it only looked like many bits and pieces of mites, but mites. We infected our 4 pomeranians, even tho the vet said they could not get them as they were taking Revolution treatment once a month. We do not have scabies, according to the books, but it looks like scabies. Its itches like scabies, and it spreads rapidly. On the dogs, it looks like mange around the eyes and mouth. If I had not had two adult males in denial, I could have already rid myself of them. Ps, I am currently taking 2 tsp of curry powder each day to keep them from biting me as I am extremely allergic and break out badly. If I get into an infested area, they will get on and crawl around and itch a little until I go shower them off with borax and H Pero. At least I am sleeping nights and no more sores, boils, infected areas. I am taking curry because it has a high concentration of turmeric and was all I had around the house. Started working after the second day. One website for spices said turmeric has been used topically (on the skin) for scabies. Best Wishes, and thank you Ted for your kind advice.

They are some type of mites similar to scabies but teensy tiny like demodex. They bite humans or animals and docs are CLUELESS. They'll just try to label you as nuts rather than admit they don't know. They can live off the host for looong time.

I first of all would like to thank everyone who posted their remedies for scabies. They are tenacious little critters aren't they! I did alot of research online and would like to share my story.

I had over a dozen large crusted scabies spots on my arms and legs... Dozens more smaller ones. I did some landscaping for a friend and we dug out a flower bed no one had touched for 20 years. I got poison ivy too (or pehaps not since I had never been allergic to it before), but didn't realize the scabies for a few days... Thought it was all just poison ivy at first. I 've had scabies before so I knew what they looked like, but the crusted scabies, or Norwegian scabies, is just the same mite but many, many, MANY of them. My skin was raised up, or very swollen in spots, with some diameters much larger than a silver dollar.

I used the borax and peroxide baths, omitting the peroxide alot, since I had no income for a while. I lost 3 jobs because I looked so awful and didn't want to contaminate others. I put myself in quarantine for about 6 weeks. My kids got small spots but I killed those right away. I was taking 5-6 borax baths in a 24 hour period, scrubbing down with it in the hottest water I could stand (my tolerance went up considerably over 6 weeks) and letting it dry before soaking. I could tell it was helping but needed something else. I used essential oils also- lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus globulus, rosemary, orange, others... and pennyroyal, which is highly toxic. It can shut down your kidneys so make sure you cleanse with a detox tea after and only use it once a week. I had them so bad I felt sick, so I detoxed my liver and kidneys with herbal teas- detoxing also helps your body deal with the little buggers! Also MSM, since it contains sulfur, I took twice everyday. I figured that, like candida, they thrive in an acidic atmospere, so I alkalized with cucumber and lemon water. I ate alkalizing vegetables and cut out all meat, sugar and alcohol. I ate a spoonful of coconut oil everyday, and used it topically to help my dried-out skin. I also used a capful of bleach and a toothbrush and scrubbed the spots occasionally, but I could tell that was making me sick too.

So, I went back online seeking other cures. The more cures I used, the more results I got. I feel that the Epsom salts really put the nail in the scabies' coffin, so to speak. I alternated borax baths with Epsoms baths, eventually just using the Epsoms salts, scrubbing myself with the salts and letting it dry a while before soaking. That's when they really started to die off. They hate sulfur. Maybe magnesium too? The essential oils helped with killing the eggs so they'd quit coming back. When I got it in my eyes, I used hot, soaked green tea bags on them. I'm not sure if it was the heat or the tea but they left my eyes. Also swimming in the neighborhood pool that contained way too much bromine may also have helped! Hahaha

I also cleaned my house and bedding incessantly, like others suggested, placing plastic covers on everything, vacuuming everyday. It was exhausting, and I barely slept for 6 weeks.

Besides the physical ways of doing away with scabies, FAITH is absolutely the best thing I had going for me. Don't ever lose it!! Faith is EVERYTHING. Not religion, but a pure steadfast belief in what you want. It always works.

Hope this works for you as well!!! It was hell!! - but I have valuable experience now, and we all have trials to go through. Maybe mine was so I could help others, I don't know- but I truly hope you find your cure!! I have the battle scars to prove I WON!!!

Take care and God bless!!

There should be a like button! Sorry for my english and spelling is not the best. Thanks for sharing. I read about epsom salt working for scabies. The mites I have seem to not be phased by it. I think they are bird mites. So far only lemon essential oil is killing them in my hair. Nothing else has like permethrin or like substances. They are not phased by coconut oil, amonia or even sulfur! I think actually the adult mites are not phased by the sulufur. MAybe newly hatched are.

The bleach baths also work on the non adult ones. Very few things work when bird mites are in your scalp. I'm so confused. I dont know what I have the more I think of it. I tried borox, sulfur, bug spray hot bath, heair dryer, toothpaste before the recent post for tooth paste, tea tree oil, turpintine oil, dawn dish liquid, neem oil and soap, lemon greass oil, apple cider vinager, ivermectin horse past, Flagyl pills, bitter melon pills, olive leafe pills, Dr, Hulda Clarcks parasite cleanse with black walnut, wormwood and freash grownd cloves, sauna, two hour soak in _____ baking soda deteregent for laundry, Quassia Amuara from a lice treatement, peroxide (peroxide does get them out of my ears when I leave in for 20 min) Diatomatious earth in bedding, carpet, hair and cloths, clove oil (made my scalp peel in huge chunks) Lysol spray and toilet bowl cleaner, barbarsol, alcholol 91%, finger nail polish remover, sun laundry detergent with color safe bleach as reccamended by the morgellons page, pine tar soap, pennyroyal oil, windex on the scalp soap for dogs, advantix permetherin 45% for dogs : (

Next on the list to try, Teds Borax in water, drank all day, colloidal silver, actual pine-tar-resin, actual Balsalm of Paru oil or resin, boiled wood chips from Quassia Amaura boiled strong in water then that water simmered in oil till the water is gone and oil remains, Still using the neem oil as it messes with their reproductive cycle.

The most valuable thing you mentioned is the faith. I KNOW I will get over this scalp mite infestation! I just have to make it happen! I have a ton of lemon oil in my hair now and it is burning! ITs near the point of panic but not there yet. If it gets to be too much, NEVER use water to rinse, douce with coconut. Olive or baby oil to dilute. Learned the hard way and the water opened the pores to more inteanse burning!

Ted, if there is ever a situation where one is running out of options or ideas its here. I've tried nearly everything. Very tired now. Gonna to take a bleach bath but with out the bleach and using chlorine for swimming pools and Sodium cabonate not to be confused with sodium Bicarmonate. There is a difference. Seems like the carbonate works better.

There is no way I can heal this and not come back to post what will have worked.

later.

Hello, I just read all of the things you tried for the bird mites in your scalp. I was just wondering if you ever tried crushed cloves of garlic? I saw an episode of monsters inside me where they said that garlic gets rid of most parasites and infections so maybe it would work for that as well. Didnt see it mentioned so figured I would chime in my suggestion. Hope you find relief. Also maybe DMSO combined with somethings you've already used would allow for greater penetration and absorption of the other remedies to better work on your scalp. Its Aug. 2013 now. Did you ever get it taken care of?

I had or may even still have some kind of buggers that got on me while cutting grass more than five years ago. And I am not sure that they got on me or was drawn out of my own body( Maybe they live in our gut, I don't know for sure , because I am not sure what these things are ) They could be Canndidda, Parasites, Mites I just don't know for sure. I won't even take time to tell what all I have taken, that helped some. What I will share with you is what worked best! Hairever Scalp Therapy rubbed onto my forearms ( where they were ) Thank goodness not in my hair. Anyway I would get black specks that would come from my skin and it would help for a while. I pretty much thought I had them contained , but not cured all the way. They would re-appear and I would rub them down again.

Well, by accident while treating some other things I started to take Cayenne Pepper! Started slowly with like 30,000 Heat units , like 1/8 teaspoon in some V-8. Worked my way up to a full teaspoon after awhile. I started to notice that more and more black specks was coming out of my arms when I would rub them with the scalp therapy. After about a month of this my arms begin to clear alot. Best out of all the remedies that I had tried. I still have an occasional one rise up (usually has a white head on it ) and a few and I mean just a few black specks come out now. I use to have bunches of the white heads and black specks. This helped me the most.

If these thing are blood born or somehow get into the bloodstream as TED thinks they might be. Then you will have to kill them internally as well as externally.

I am a beekeeper and treat my bees with essential oils. I thought that if the oils kill the varroah mite they might kill scabies.

In 2 tablespoons of olive oil put:

15 drops of wintergreen
15 drops of peppermint oil
15 drops of neem oil
15 drops of oregano oil
and for good measure and soothing 10 drops of lavender

I tried it on my scabies
No more itching
No more rash - within one week it seemed to have gone - I shall keep going for another week in case there are any eggs left!!

I agree with the essential oils getting rid of scabies, this is the mixture that worked for me:
In a cup of olive oil mix, two teaspoons of tea tree oil, a teaspoon of clove oil, a teaspoon of neem oil, and a teaspoon of orange oil. Rub it on your whole body like you would lotion before bedtime. I would do it for at least a month just to be sure. I put it on everynight because it also makes your skin so soft. The orange and clove oil really help the smell of the tea tree oil and the neem oil smell a lot better. This is so much better than all of the chemical treatments, and it really works. Vacuum and wash everything down and you should feel a lot better in a week or two.

I am new to this scabies thing. But the things that worked really well for me. Is the Peppermint "Oil", Lavender oil, Neem oil, with base of olive, vegetable or avocado oil. Within a couple days it's worked.

Hello,

I just read your letter on the essential oils that helped with scabies. I just got some scabies from who knows where these are terrible. I am desperate to get rid of them.

I was wondering exactly how the oils worked for you. Did they kill the scabies of just help with the itching or what? And how long did it take for you to rid them?

Please write me back,
Thank you,

Just wished to add that yes, certain essential oils are effective, though how to use them can be confusing, and using them in too strong a concentration or pure, can burn the skin.

After experimenting, I found that diluting with a carrier oil worked, but diluting with Aloe Vera Gel or liquid was much more effective and almost instant.

Bathing in the epsom salts and borax as Ted mentions is helpful, but a rapid solution is to:

Mix together:

1 1/2 - 2 cups of Aloe Vera Gel and adds

2 drops orange oil,

2 drops peppermint oil,

3 drops, clove oil,

and 2 drops tea tree oil,

mixing that liquid in a small tray or container, then while you are DRY standing in the shower/tub (so the solution is not diluted by water on your body) apply that with a small face cloth, dripping on top of one's head, covering every single part of your body systematically. Rub it in and you will see them leave (and yes you can see the adult form). Continue to rub that in and after 20 minutes rinse your whole body.

Repeat the above process immediately again. (and a 3rd time if you are still seeing them leave but it will probably not be necessary).

Of course, as Ted has instructed, cleaning up the environment as noted throughout EarthClinic so as to prevent reinfestation is very important. But at least you will feel normal again and they will be gone. I would repeat the above process (one application) a few days in a row, and once a week while continuing to clean the environment, vacuuming, etc.

There is hope and natural treatments definitely can eradicate scabies. There is no doubt! Hang in there!

I found eucalyptus oil to be quite a potent natural insecticide. I have read it fries small insects such as fleas and head lice and so far appears to have stopped the scabies. It doesnt irritate my skin. I think essential oils work but perhaps take a bit longer than the chemical based treatments.

It is not that natural remedies take longer than conventional allopathic medical treatments; the method of correctly using natural treatments is the key. Also, conventional medical treatments are increasingly failing due to resistance occurring.

With regard to essential oils, for example, they can be applied in a bath but some people put too much in and their skin is "burned" or irritated. Some have pointed out that to evenly distribute essential oils in a bath, drip the oils onto the epsom salts and borax powders, and then spread those powders into the bath water for an even distribution that won't burn the skin.

Other methods are using Aloe Vera gel which is ideal because it remains liquid for longer than gelled alcohol hand cleaner and can carry the essential oils into the skin, while also having its own anti-parasitic action.

One can also create one's own lotion with any lotion that you tolerate well and is absorbed well into the skin, but dilute it somewhat so it is more liquid than originally, and stir in the essential oils. This can be rubbed into the skin all over the body and left on overnight, as well as spot treatment for areas that are especially itchy.

However, we should not make the mistake many make to think that the mites exist only where it itches; there are many, many more spread around and this becomes obvious any time you use a remedy that causes the mites to release themselves from the skin and die; the adults become visible as tiny dark specks that can be felt when rubbing the liquidy Aloe Vera gel/essential oil or lotion on.

There is no need to poison oneself with neurologically damaging conventional remedies, mistakenly thinking the docs know better. They don't and have no clue what is really going on. Ted is right that these "nano-insects" of various sorts are being made to be increasingly resistant to conventional remedies.

Well who knows where I caught this mungrel parasite. Three weeks after returninig from a family holiday in WA I began severely itching. I became concerned and went to my doctor. As there were no signs on my hands and feet and limitted marks on my body his thought was it might be scabies. I was like WHAT! Couldnt be. I said "Give a week and see what happens". When I went back he made an appointment for me to see a leading dermatologist in SA. If it wasnt for two small sores on my penis it would have been difficult to diagnose. Yes scabies I had. YUK. That night my girlfreind and I put the cream on us from head to foot. This was about the 7th of March this year. Again we covered ourselves with the white scabies cream a week later. We cleaned everything I was in touch with. After the second sleep with cream all over us I burnt the mattress in the back yard and bought a new one. I have only just recently taken the plastic off the new mattress. 7 months later I still itch as it is the scabie debris coming out of me. It has taken 8 months I have healed sores (skin blemishes) and now only small sores on my cancer operation scar under my belly button and on a scar on my butt where I backed into an emery grinder. It is only just recent that Ive had annoying itches again so Im back to oil baths. ie.eucalyptus/tee tree and citrus. Ive been having these baths often since after we slept with the scabies cream on us. My girlfriend luckily has not been affected by the beast. I contribute this to the excessive cleaning since our cream baths. Plus my constant bathing in the above oils.

I made a mistake of NOT believing in my doctor on the first visit so literally (because of the way they breed)1000's made home under my skin. So wish I had the cream put on my body when my doctor first acknowledged I might have scabies. Please if you think you have scabies get the scabies cream to sleep with on you straight away. I learnt a big lesson. I believe I used a white tube called lycream. I used cortival for a short time to heal the many sores that I had on my body. After Cortival I used a eucalyptus/ citrus spray on the sores after a bath, it stung but didnt itch. I felt the difference between a live itch and a dead itch. If you can picture sleeping in a bed of three corner jacks (nasty aussie prickles) thats what it felt like for me. As my body is getting back to some sort of normality my only concern now are the skin blemishes. I believe because of the way my body was invaded my research and methods have helped me What can bring back skin colour in old dark scabie sores that have healed?

Garlic Supplements cures scabies. If you have read through the post, I previously posted a yea for borax and peroxide. They did work to relieve my itching, but I still got long welts on my skin which then turned into little bumps and itched like crazy. Wednesday I did some searching and found out that garlic is anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and could cure scabies. So I ran out an purchased a bottle at the $1 store. Skeptical that it was not going to be potent enough, I decided it wouldn't hurt to try. I took the supplements twice a day once in the morning and once at night. My supplements were 400mg. Use caution because too much garlic can make you sick. I was itch free completely within 2 days with no new bumps. I was sharing the bottle with my two boys, and did not realize that there were only two pills left today on Monday. So I gave the last two pills to my children. Now I sit here itching, but not to the degree that I was, but my children are not itching at all. First thing tomorrow I am getting another bottle. When i run out again I am going to try going off the pill again, will let you all know how well it works out. I wish eveyone luck. This thing is no picnic!

I filled a 10 x 14 plastic laundry basin with a half inch of full strength laundry bleach-- then stepped into it-- then I rubbed it in to my skin--it stung--small white grains of sand started to come out-- these were the larvae of the crusted scabies--i intend to repeat daily for two weeks to kill them at all stages of development--then took shower--finally I applied the second tube of the 5% permethrin cream--slept with no crawling sensation!!! At least I know that bleach will kill these critters.

Did the garlic work for you to cure your Scabies problem really? People post all kinds of horror stories on here and it never seems like they finish saying what their outcome is? Does Scabies always get cured eventually?

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!

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.

Posted by Weallitch (Portland, Or, Usa) on 02/27/2013

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.
