You Currently Have Hope
Whether you have just been diagnosed with scabies or now suspect you have it, or you have been suffering for many months — or years — from this skin affliction, I want you to finally have hope that you’ll eliminate those devil creatures once and for all. I endured for nine long months and tried virtually everything you could possibly try and so because of thatI know what will not work, what may work, and what probably will work. In my experience, you can’t use only one treatment for scabies, or several scabies treatments, but rather, you really should employ a multitude of scabies treatments to be able to cure scabies. But before we start with my scabies cure protocols based on my personal experience, what is scabies?
What Is Scabies?
Scabies are microscopic mites that burrow into your skin, lay eggs, those eggs hatch and ultimately crawl out on the skin, mate, and then the cycle continues. They’ll proliferate unless they are stopped, and stopping scabies is extremely tricky. You won’t be able to see them with your eye unless you have razor sharp eyesight or a microscope, but, you may be able to feel the scabies crawl in your skin (I could). More importantly, what you absolutely can feel is very, very INTENSE ITCHING, usually at night while in bed, as they crawl around ***inside your skin*** — that is the hallmark of a scabies infestation. Scabies go active in warmth, which is why the itching intensifies in bed. Scabies burrow in the skin which is the reason why they are so tricky to kill and eradicate. Females deposit 2-3 eggs per day as they burrow beneath the skin. After the eggs hatch, the larvae migrate to the skin surface and burrow into the intact stratum corneum to construct almost invisible, short burrows called molting pouches. The larval stage lasts about 3 to 4 days. After the larvae molt, the resulting nymphs have 4 pairs of legs. This form molts into slightly larger nymphs before molting into adults. Larvae and nymphs may often be found in molting pouches or in hair follicles and look similar to adults, only smaller. Adults are round, sac-like eyeless mites. Females are 0.30 to 0.45 mm long and 0.25 to 0.35 mm broad, and males are slightly more than half that size.Mating occurs after the active male penetrates the molting pouch of the adult female. Mating takes place only once and leaves the female fertile for the remainder of her life. Impregnated females leave their molting components and wander on the surface of the skin until they find a suitable site for a permanent burrow. While on the skin’s surface, mites hold onto skin using sucker-like pulvilli attached to the two most anterior pairs of legs. When the impregnated female mite finds a suitable location, it starts to make its characteristic serpentine burrow, laying eggs in the process. After the impregnated female burrows into the skin, she remains there and proceeds to loosen her burrow and lay eggs for the rest of her life (1-2 weeks ). Yuk!!!Visually, a scabies infestation can look like eczema, and indeed, it’s frequently misdiagnosed as such. Scabies like to hide and go where fractures are, like on the back of hands around fingers, around the waist, under breasts, in the groin area for men, and in between toes, to name a few. However, in reality, they go anywhere and everywhere. Thus, if you’re diagnosed with eczema but you have INTENSE itching while in bed, you can be rest assured you probably have scabies. It’s the extreme itching that is the scabies giveaway and it is what finally led me to figuring out how I had scabies.Scabies is usually transmitted by close skin-to-skin contact or via an infested surface, like clothes, a car seat or a sofa. Although transmission can happen at any point, they do not move quickly so it’s estimated that it takes about 20 minutes of contact for a transmission. They can usually live for up to 3 days on a non-living surface and up to 60 days on/in a host.Killing scabies mites on the skin is difficult, but killing them within the skin is nearly impossible. That is why they are so tricky to ruin — using something that can kill them inside the skin also jeopardizes the skin itself and THAT is often the cause of chemical burns that will literally destroy the skin. What happens next is both a scabies skin affliction AND a chemical burn affliction, causing untold misery and despair as one tries to kill the scabies without killing one’s skin or body.And I chemical burnt my skin — A LOT. I suffered terribly.I shaved my chest after a couple of months so I could be sure I was getting cream where the scabies were. Later the scabies transferred to my back and caused a lot of pain and frustration.My Scabies StoryAround August of 2019.
I finally figured out that the intense itching I had at night was scabies. Interestingly, I have since learned that dermatologists often misdiagnose scabies as eczema or some other skin condition, so although I probably should have gone to see one after the itching started, at precisely the same time I did not even know that it was something to go see a dermatologist for because, for all I knew, it could have been some internal histamine reaction or liver difficulty (possibly came up in my searches for intense itching at night), and I may have been misdiagnosed anyway. What gave it away though as I was trying to figure out it was the intense itching at night. But after I started reading up on scabies and reviewing all the symptoms, I knew I had scabies. As someone who is into natural health and healing, I immediately started searching for natural solutions and came across a video by a gal who said she used tea tree oil and coconut oil. I started using that. And THAT was a massive mistake because after several days the tea tree oil burnt my skin. Badly. And all of the sudden I had not only issues with the scabies and their marks and blisters but now I had chemical burns.Within four days I was over the natural substance and sleeping in oil each night and so I asked a doctor friend to prescribe PERMETHRIN, the go-to insecticide cream used to treat scabies. I used as directed: apply over entire body, go to bed, wake up, and wash off. It did not work. I did it again seven days later as per the instructions (while using some other natural treatments during those seven days) and again, that didn’t stop them either.By now I was on the Internet each and every night reading website after website and performing every imaginable keyword search possible trying to find a solution that would work. I read on numerous forums literally hundreds of personal stories of people talking about what they were doing so that I could see if I could find something — anything — that I could try that would wipe the scabies from my body without killing my skin. I had some successes in certain parts of my body merely to have them appear in other parts.I could feel them crawling on me . I signed up for Amazon Prime because I was literally buying anything and anything that seemed promising. Before all was said and done I paid out over $7,000 for various treatment options to get rid of the scabies and that I was finally clear of the scabies by April 2018.My doctor friend not only prescribed more Permethrin, but later, also Ivermectin — an oral medication that I took at recommended dose and later increased substantially — to no avail — as well as Malathion, another sort of topical prescription insecticide that I was hoping would kill them. I went through a LOT of Permethrin and Ivermectin.I also bought and tried a huge number of natural products, like:Sulfur creamSulfur soapSulfur shampooNeem oilCayenne pepperTea tree oilClove oilCrysthanamum flowers and teaPennyroyal oilRock salt for bathsDiotomaceous EarthCoconut oilOlive oilCastor oilWitch hazelGreen KleenBlack salveRosemary oilNaturasil Scabies kitSalicylic Acid Skin Peel 30%Hair removal gelGrapeseed oilTurpentineAnd, so, so many additional items. I spent a fortune trying to eliminate these scabies, all the while my skin was getting worse and worse in several areas because of the scabies and the treatments I was using, and of course, then depression sat in as each new promise did not work. At one point in time they were just eating up my back and I couldn’t get them off my back. The scabies were destroying my back and I just was sinking into deeper and deeper depression and helplessness.This is a good time to mention that scabies will get onto surfaces, in our clothes, in our sheets, on the ground, etc., soI also was vacuuming each and every day, doing laundry in hot water and drying on high heat every single day, and the cleaning part took up a great 20% — 30% of my day each and every day. I was also taking baths many days, and of course that eats up time, as does applying stuff into the skin each day. It was a nightmare with no end in sight. However, I kept digging, I kept reading, and I kept scouring the web to see what I may have missed, and then I finally found several options at around the same time that began to work.It took a few months to acquire several of the best solutions to treat my scabies but once I had them all in place it took about ten weeks to completely eradicate the scabies from my body. So, even though what I am about to share is what I believe to be your best options, I also believe this is not going to be an overnight scabies cure for you. But your persistence will win and I think I am sharing with you a scabies treatment plan that can lead to a scabies cure.
THE SCABIES CURE
How To Cure Your ScabiesBefore I start I want to tell you that
1) what I am about to suggest is based on my real life experience, and
2) I believe that we will need to go after scabies with many approaches at once. And we need to do this in the least toxic way to our skin. Scabies can live for 30 to 60 days in the skin — so, you really have to plan on a 60 day bare minimum treatment plan. I did not have all these solutions at the same time so it took me four months to clear my skin of scabies once I was doing all of the major scabies treatment protocols outlined here. So, don’t stop in case you do not see lesions — keep going for a minimum of 15 days, but preferably 30 days. Bear in mind, you are not killing the scabies all at once — you’re are killing the scabies a few at a time each day and hopefully stopping the reproduction cycle as well — with this in mind, you can expect a two month procedure.
1) See A Dermatologist
A Dermatologist is a physician who specializes in skin conditions, and even though I read loads of stories of misdiagnoses or incompetence once I was reading about other sufferer experiences, I still think it is wise to go see a specialist. If you have severe itching at night be sure you mention that to the doctor so the physician is inserted into scabies and not believing it is eczema another skin condition. If the Dermatologist diagnoses scabies or a mite infestation there is high likelihood you will be prescribed Permethrin, which is a topical insecticide. You are going to want this. Ask for at least one refill, but preferably, see if you can get a couple more. Ivermectin, the oral treatment, is rarely prescribed on a first trip. But, if you can get Malathion I suggest doing so. You can try Ivermectin, but it failed miserably for me.Typical Permethrin treatment is the use of 1/2 tube of the cream over the whole body — literally everywhere — before going to bed. The next morning it is washed off. Then it is supposed to be used again in seven days in the same way. Unfortunately, this strategy does not work for a lot of people, especially if there is a big infestation. It’s simply not nearly enough treatment to kill the mites and the eggs, and mites are becoming resistant to this insecticide anyway.I personally used a great deal of Permethrin and used it frequently because I could get more than what a typical Dermatologist would prescribe. If you are concerned about putting an insecticide in your own body, I understand because I was too. But, trust me, you want those scabies off of you and from you more than any side effects that may occur from using Permethrin. Therefore, what I learned is this: we should use it if we can get access to Permethrin, however, we will need to do a LOT of other things as well. I discuss how to use Permethrin and Malathion a bit further down.
2) Take Bleach & Borax BathsBleach has chlorine in it, and chlorine has been used to kill microorganisms in water for a lengthy time. Unlike essential oils that are suggested in many forums for bath water, bleach disperses throughout the whole bath whereas all essential oils do not — they rise to the top. That is critically important to recognize. You want ALL parts of your body to have contact with that chlorine so that any scabies that have contact will be killed. Essential oils in water don’t work because they float to the surface and do not disperse. Bear in mind, we drink water with chlorine in it. So, it is about the dose. I recall seeing mention of bleach once I was trying to find a solution but skipped over it a couple of times until I came across some very convincing info on why to use it. I distinctly remember a mom talking about taking their scabies infested child to the public swimming pool and they noticed less lesions and figured out that the chlorine in the pool was murdering the scabies. Then they used one CAP (not cup) of bleach in bathwater for their child and were able to cure their child. The other kind of bath to take is a borax bath with hydrogen peroxide. Borax is a natural mineral and nontoxic to humans but poisonous to scabies and hydrogen peroxide is known to kill microorganisms. Both of these can dissolve into the bath water and not rise to the top like essential oils will (you do need to stir at the borax). You want to be able to stay in there for about a half hour so that either the chlorine or the borax can do their job of killing. Taking these baths are your number one way of killing mites and I suggest taking one every day if at all possible. This should kill any mites in your skin and perhaps just under it, but probably won’t kill the deeper ones or the eggs. Nevertheless, scabies mites are perishing and that is a fantastic thing.Use unscented concentrated bleach, like a Target brand or something similar (note: using”chlorine-free” bleach would defeat the point of a bleach bath). Start with just 1/2 cup of concentrated bleach in a full bathtub of hot water. Don’t input bathtub until the bathtub has filled. Soak for half an hour. Dry normally. Now, you can try higher amounts of concentrated bleach, like 1 cup or 1.5 cups. I NEVER used more than 1.5 cups of concentrated bleach and I highly recommend you don’t either. One time I took a bleach bath at night and the following day took two bleach baths and I burnt my skin. So, you will need to be very careful not to get overzealous with this treatment like I did. Bleach does work, but too much too quickly will cause problems.I recommend that you alternate bleach baths with borax baths.Start with two full cups of borax and 24 ounce of 3% hydrogen peroxide. I ultimately was using four full cups of borax and 48 oz of hydrogen peroxide per bath. This is actually a fairly relaxing bath. I also purchased a skin brush that I used during showers and baths to help dislodge any mites that may be on the skin. Just gently rub the brush on all your skin — especially on affected areas — throughout every bath and shower. Disinfect brush BenzaRid after each use. OverviewSo, to recap, alternate between a bleach bath and a borax bath every day. These baths should start to give you relief within a few days. It’s, in my opinion, the number one top thing to do to kill scabies. PURCHASE PRODUCTSConcentrated Bleach (3 pack)Borax (4 pack)3% Hydrogen Peroxide (6 pack)BenzaRid DisinfectantSkin Brush2a) Try A Chlorine Dioxide BathChlorine dioxide — sometimes also called MMS — is a very safe water treatment chemical that is used worldwide to disinfect drinking water, and there’s very high probability it’ll kill scabies on the skin if used at enough dose when taking a bath. Interestingly, chlorine dioxide is often referred to as”bleach,” even though it isn’t bleach. Had I known about it while I was suffering from scabies I would have attempted it. Essentially, chlorine dioxide neutralizes and destroys pathogens by oxidation. The main difference between using bleach and using chlorine dioxide will be cost: chlorine dioxide will be much more costly to use, but it also is much safer than bleach. In case you have a child suffering from scabies I suggest starting with chlorine dioxide.Chlorine dioxide works by oxidation — meaning, the chlorine dioxide releases oxygen molecules when it’s”working” — or, killing pathogens. For chlorine dioxide to be as powerful as possible, products are sent in two bottles and mixed together to create the chlorine dioxide, which is then added to the water to be treated.1 — CLICK HERE to purchase the chlorine dioxide kit.2 — Make sure that your bathtub is absolutely 100% clean with no residual soap or anything else in or on the bathtub. 3 — To an adult, mix 30 drops of the sodium chlorite with 30 drops of the activator and swish mix for a moment and let stand for three minutes. I suggest 1/2 that for a kid, but please do some more research first. 4 — Add mixture to bath water and get in the bath and stay for thirty minutes or longer. More information on chlorine dioxide: www.chemicalsafetyfacts.org/chlorine-dioxide/2b) Take Soothing BathsIf your skin is particularly sensitive and you are in a great deal of pain, try taking a bath with organic olive oil and/or neem oil. The olive oil will be soothing to the skin and can help you feel better, though it probably isn’t going stop the scabies. Neem oil may be soothing as well, and it also may help prevent the reproductive cycle of the scabies. With oil, use one cup of oil in the bath. I discuss neem oil further down.For months and months I put all types of chemicals in my skin — natural, synthetic and frequently caustic — as a way to try and kill the scabies infestation. The result? Some success, but at a high cost: chemical burnt skin that caused a lot of pain and discomfort. So, not only did I now have scabies lesions, I also had horrible chemical burns throughout my body, which then made it even more difficult to try different products or even the same ones on my very sensitive and damaged skin to try and kill the scabies.As I kept searching for solutions to this vexing problem of how to kill the mites WITHOUT destroying my skin, I came across several people who had used heat to kill their infestation. Heat kills scabies: according to the CDC, scabies will die when exposed to 122˚F for 10 minutes. My first idea was to use a hair dryer since others have said that is what they did. Well, once you are blowing very hot air on really sensitive skin at such close proximity and higher heat, it is very easy to burn the skin. I quickly abandoned this idea and I do NOT recommend using a hair dryer!My far infrared sauna that I purchased and used to kill my scabies.Several scabies sufferers mentioned using far-infrared saunas and others mentioned using regular saunas and being able to eliminate their scabies mites with this kind of heat. So the question is this: can we raise our skin temperature to at least 122˚F for ten minute or more, and the answer is”probably yes.” Humans have been doing the sauna thing for a long time now and the average temperature for a dry sauna is 140˚ to 160˚ and staying in one for 15 to 20 minutes isn’t uncommon. Consequently, if we can stay in a hot sauna for as long as possible will mites be killed? Maybe not all will die, but I feel some will die — and that works for me.What’s the other extremely important advantage to using heat to kill scabies? We do not destroy our skin in the procedure! Hallelujah! That makes heat an absolute must-do treatment for scabies because if done properly you will lessen your mite infestation each time without destroying your skin in the process.At first I moved to a place that rents a Far Infrared sauna and I used their sauna for nine days straight. And I did notice it helped. So I BOUGHT ONE! Yep, by this time I had had the scabies for five months already and wanted to do everything I could to get rid of them. So I started doing at-home far infrared treatments every day on maximum settings, which was about 145˚F for about 40 minutes. My back cleared — which was inches from the heating panels — but I was still having difficulties on my arms and the front of my body, where the heat was not as extreme.So, I decided to go to a Korean Spa where they have multiple temperature saunas and one of them ran at 180˚F and I’d sit in there for 30 to 35 minutes and use their other saunas and a hot tub as well. I went to the spa three times a week for a few months. I want to point out that I moved to a steam room before using the saunas but a steam room does not work the same and I didn’t have success using a steam room.Some gyms have dry saunas so that is one option for getting into a hot sauna at a fairly inexpensive price ($50/month or so). In some large cities there are spa centers that have multiple saunas (e.g., a Korean Spa). And many cities now have boutique businesses with far infrared saunas. And of course, you could buy a far infrared sauna just like I did. I use mine to this day as there are more benefits to owning one and that includes enhanced circulation and detoxification, among other reasons.SAUNA INSTRUCTIONSSo, I believe that heat, in the form of a dry sauna, is essential to ruining scabies. I recommend that you take cold water or ice water into the sauna with you to drink so you can stay in there literally as long as possible. Take a lot of towels so you can wipe off the perspiration and ditch the towels that may have scabies on them. Some scabies may come out because of the heat (I have no idea) so I did not take chances even with the towels that I wiped myself with. Try to stay in the Far Infrared for at least 40 minutes at 140˚F. Or for 30 minutes at a regular dry sauna at 160˚F or higher. Drink lots of cold water while you are doing this. Purchase a far infrared sauna and perform a sauna every day; or alternate between far infrared and a regular sauna. Of note: the back brace for an infrared sauna is good to have because it actually reduces the heat to the back so you can stay in a little longer, plus, it will make it more comfortable.PURCHASE A FAR INFRARED SAUNAI have this 2-person Far Infrared Sauna and thus far, it has worked flawlessly. The Far Infrared Sauna Backrest is highly recommended. 4) Use Full Body TopicalsYou will want to place some sort of a killing agent on much of your body every day, and every evening. The idea here is that it’s covering a broad swath so that when the scabies mites crawl out, they have to deal with whatever you put onto your body.I’ll give you my theory on what you are trying to do: you want to use a variety of topicals that can disrupt and kill the mites whereby perhaps one chemical may not do it, but a combo will. Maybe one weakens them and maybe another finishes them off. Since so many people have fought to kill those mites using all kinds of remedies, I want to give you this theory so you can think about this differently: It is not about one thing — it is about a lot of things.Let’s start with the obvious: prescription Permethrin cream.Permethrin CreamPermethrin cream is the prescription insecticide you receive from the dermatologist. Hopefully you can get a few tubes of it. It is not the cure-all as claimed. But, I think it helps. Keep in mind mites could easily be resistant to this cream today, so, it may kill a few, may slow down a few, or may not do anything. For the first and second application, use as directed: cover the entire body, go to bed, and wash off in the morning. When I say entire body, I mean everywhere, such as around the face, neck, private areas, feet, everywhere. Wait seven days and do it again (doing all of the other treatments as outlined in this treatment manual ).After the two applications I suggest applying it only to the affected areas with a wide border. So, if lesions are on your stomach and chest but not in your legs, do not put it on your legs — just the stomach and chest and up to the neck and down to the groin — and do so at night before bed. This lowers your toxic exposure and saves the cream for those areas that need it. My theory here is that when the fleas exit the skin they’ll be adversely affected, even if they are not killed.
Do this as often as possible and see if you can get more Permethrin should you run out.The scabies migrated to my back after a couple/few months and ate me alive. I finally reached out to a friend who helped me, but then I got wise and bought an applicator. So, just get one right away and also get gloves in case you have a friend help you. I used This Back Applicator and it worked great.And These Medical Gloves are fantastic for protecting yourself and others. Sulfur Kills MitesSulfur has been used successfully to kill and eradicate scabies from clinical trials and you absolutely should be using sulfur cream on your treatment plan. I was not able to use sulfur at the beginning because my skin had been burned so badly by tea tree oil and other chemicals that sulfur burned me. Later, however, after healing, I was able to. Sulfur can be an irritant, for sure. So be careful.
Thus, you’ll want to utilize sulfur cream based on your tolerance level and infestation. I don’t think you will need to place it over your whole body, butif you can tolerate it I’d put it on affected areas in broad swaths around those affected areas during the daytime, and perhaps alternate with other treatments as well.In a study from India of 814 people treated with neem oil and garlic, 97 percent were cured of scabies. Neem oil adversely affects their hormones and ability to replicate. It is used to prevent unwanted pests on plants and is sold in plant shops as well. It took a while for me to get to neem oil, and when I did, I blended it with other stuff. Later, I put it on straight, and that lasted for a couple of days, but then I had an allergic reaction to it and could no longer use it. So, I know that it can kill scabies by disrupting the reproductive cycle based on research, but I also know it stinks, it’s extremely oily and thick on the skin, and may not be for everyone. However, I want you to know about it because it may be a viable treatment option that would be placed on a lot of your body. And perhaps you’d just use it every other day, as an example, and use sulfur another days. That would be a great treatment plan. You can purchase neem oil here.Kleen GreenI discovered Kleen Green fairly early on and purchased it based on a great deal of favorable reviews for eliminating scabies. It is a citric enzyme liquid that is supposed to cause the scabies to molt early, thereby killing them. Thus, it is not a toxin exactly, but if scabies shed their shell early, they perish. The suggested dilution is 7 parts water to 1 part Kleen Green. I did that, and then 5:1, and then 3:1, and then quit after a month or two. Later I blended neem oil and Kleen Green and colloidal silver and put that in my own body. That didn’t work. I did that for months and weeks. Soooo…. .I think it’s worth trying this product because it goes on the body fairly easily, isn’t slimy like neem oil, doesn’t stink and it has favorable reviews for murdering scabies. But, I believe you are best off with using it full strength on your own body, which is what I did near the end of my scabies bout. So, I was doing heat, bleach baths, borax baths and Kleen Green full strength every day, and not performing any neem oil because by that time I was having an allergic reaction to the neem oil. If I had to do this all over again, I’d use Kleen Green full advantage.CeraVe Moisturizing Cream Soothes Skin Care Many, many months into my scabies infestation I sent photographs to an online Dermatologist and he prescribed CeraVe Moisturizing Cream and Fluocinonide Cream 5%, which is a topical steroid. The CeraVe cream you can get at Amazon and does not cost much, but the steroid cream is expensive. CeraVe cream is soothing to the skin and has a massive number of positive reviews on Amazon stating that the cream has healed a variety of rashes. What’s intriguing about this cream is that it’s thick and dense, and I feel it may inhibit the ability of scabies to move around easily on the skin. Additionally, it has some healing properties for this, so I think it’s a great cream to apply where you have scabies lesions.The Fluocinonide is by prescription only, but in case you can get it, I think it’s worth using. The Dermatologist said to place the CeraVe cream initially, then the Fluocinonide in addition to that. Later, I used one or another, in only small problem areas, but at the beginning, I was placing both on both arms, on my chest and stomach and on my back.At the very least these two creams, or at least only the CeraVe, will help heal the damaged skin and that’s really important. Use it liberally where you have lesions.Purchase CeraVe Moisturizing Cream on Amazon.There are a couple or few companies that have created an entire line of products designed to eliminate scabies. As much as I wanted this to assist me I had a major problem that’s that an active ingredient is tea tree oil, and my skin had a bad reaction to tea tree oil early on, and then also when I applied their cream to my skin. Also, because of their cream, I didn’t like the feel of the sulfur from the cream: it was bumpy and not creamy and for that reason uncomfortable in my skin. I gave one of those bottles of cream to a friend who was also suffering from scabies and she also did not like the feel and also her skin had a reaction. So, this product wouldn’t be my first pick for you. But I want you to know about in case you want to try a turnkey system. Click here to see the Naturasil scabies starter pack.A spot topical is something you put right onto an area where you think the scabies mites are, and in particular, where they are below the skin. What is the toughest part of having scabies? Killing them within the skin. Now, I will profess that I have no absolute scientific validation that what I am going to suggest actually works, only that I did it a lot and ultimately, together with my other treatments, I don’t have scabies anymore. My theory here is that we are expecting that a product can soak into the skin a little and kill a few mites without ruining the skin.Something interesting I found was that it appears that pine oil will kill scabies. Turpentine oil is walnut oil, and I used a cotton tip to apply it regularly to the various lesions within my body. For the most part, turpentine oil didn’t sting when I applied it, unless there was a lot of chemical burn from different treatments. I believe I should mention now that I tried a great deal of products in my skin and I am only giving you those that I think can help you and not cause much or any distress. Using turpentine oil is extremely straight forward — just use a cotton swab, dip from the turpentine and apply to the lesions, once or twice daily. I asked my doctor to prescribe this after Permethrin and Ivermectin (tablets ) weren’t functioning when I read a review by a doctor who said it was the missing link to eliminating his scabies. I applied it liberally in my badly affected arm each day and by day 3 I had severe chemical burns from the Malathion. Ouch! The idea here is maybe the combination of chemicals will cause sufficient of the scabies to perish. Malathion lotion not only has malathion — an insecticide — inside, it also has pine oil. Fancy that. So, when you have tried my other remedies for a few months and are not have a discount, see if you can find a prescription for Malathion. Just make sure you use a cotton swab to apply to affected areas and don’t spread this all over your body — it’ll burn you!This is an all natural remedy used to treat skin ailments and it just so happens that it has pine oil in it and it has herbs and ingredients in it that help penetrate the skin. At one stage my skin was so sensitive and so raw from chemical burns I couldn’t use this treatment, but later after my skin healed a few I could. If your skin isn’t sensitive to this I’d spread it on a fairy broad area around the lesions, alternating between this and the sulfur cream. I believe this salve is well worth using. Purchase Pure Remedy Extra Drawing Black Salve right here.DMSO DMSO can carry other topicals through the skin, and that means probably into the scabies and their eggs within the skin. Nevertheless, I blended 7 parts Turpentine to 1 part DMSO, shook nicely, and applied to lesions using a cotton swab. And you shouldn’t use it straight in your skin. In fact, I will go so far as to say that in the event you want to try this, start at a 20:1 ratio of Turpentine to DMSO and make sure that you shake thoroughly before applying since both of these oils will separate. And do not do it every day. Let me just be clear: if you attempt this, use EXTREME CAUTION. I used this cream for 2 functions: 1) it is a thick cream with skin tone coloring so I used it to cover my damaged skin to conceal the scabies mite and chemical burn lesions once I went out in public, and 2) it has ingredients in it that helps heal skin. I used this cream a good deal. Purchase it here. Some folks had reported it helped to clear their scabies. I am not so sure about that, however, I did use it and because it aids the skin and it’s all-natural, I suggest applying it to your skin.

The Scientists discovered that part of this vaccine, Lithium Chloride, had a 98 percent mortality rate against the mite in miniscule quantities at the 24 hour mark.” He tried lithium ion (a scientific sort of lithium) and treated himself in THRE DAYS he said. Some attempted the lithium ion, which is actually not designed for human consumption, while some attempted the supplement Lithium Orotate.Attempt Lithium Orotate for scabies and melancholy controlLithium, in small quantities and as Lithium OROTATE actually reverses depression and anxiety and provides a perky sense — it isn’t a downer like many perceive it to be. Lithium CARBONATE is what doctors prescribe to people suffering from bipolar disorder and other mental disorders and because it’s difficult to absorb, higher dosing is used which means a demand for constant doctor tracking. There’s a significant gap between the two and it’s important to remember that Lithium OROTATE is relatively safe to take, every day.I read what Dr. Timothy M. Marshall, PhD had to say about Lithium Orotate as well as what Dr. Jonathan Wright, MD had to say about Lithium Orotate, and both conclude it’s safe, useful and can stop addiction, improve mood and sleep, and reverse anxiety and depression, among other things. Dr. Wright has been prescribing it to his patients since the early 1970s without difficulty. I strongly recommend reading both of their papers on Lithium Orotate. That said, Lithium Orotate can deplete essential fatty acids and consequently Dr. Wright suggests taking a vitamin E Oil and flax oil each day.Now, here is the amazing part about Lithium Orotate: Within 24 hours of taking it I felt unbelievable. Not kidding! As a natural health type of a man I have taken dozens of nutritional supplements for mood enhancement and that I can share that without question I had an immediate improved disposition within only one day of taking Lithium Orotate. I suggested to others that they attempt this, and they did, and all kinds of positive feedback happened — people loved itless anxiety and depression, calmer mood, better sleep, and much more. In fact, I take it each day to this day because of how powerful it is. I feel it enhances neurological connectivity at an electrical degree. I cannot say for certain because this is also when I started doing the bleach baths, but this was the timeframe that all changed for me in which the bugs started to disappear. I can tell you that Ivermectin, the oral prescription medication that I used and attempted copious amounts of, absolutely never functioned. I also tried many different nutritional supplements for killing mites in the interior and none of these worked. The only supplement I recommend taking for killing mites in the interior is Lithium Orotate, and primarily because of that study, and because there’s high probability you’ll feel better if you take it.I know I was miserable during this time of my life when nothing seemed to eliminate the scabies mites and I was trying everything under the sun to treat my scabies while I had painful lesions on my body. So, I think it’s worth a try because of that bee research and because I believe you will feel much better. Literally. My only caveat about this is that you really do need to take the oils that Dr. Wright suggests if you are going to try out the Lithium Orotate.Vitamin E Oil — one cap per dayFlax Oil — one cap per dayAt the very least you’ll feel better!!!
7) Build Your Own Immune System
A strong and healthy immune system will help repel a scabies infestation, whereas a weak and poorly functioning immune system will allow a broader and more damaging infestation, which might lead to norwegian crusted scabies: where there are hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of scabies on a person. Therefore, what you want to also do is build your immune system and do all you can to get it up to optimal function in this time. This can allow you to stop the infestation.The most powerful and fastest way to supercharge your immune system is with 25 gram Vitamin C IVs, administered with a functional medical doctor or naturopathic physician. I believe I got six or seven of them while I had my scabies infestation. Vitamin C IVs are not cheap, unfortunately, but they are extremely good at supercharging the immune system. When placed directly into the blood these nutrients are able to get assimilated into cells immediately and get to work. This is miracle medication and that I just cannot recommend it enough to you. To locate a physician near you, do a Google search on”vitamin C IV [you town or state]” and you should see many choices. There are a lot of resistant building supplements you can take that will help your immune system work better. There are many others but these are the big ones to take.Poor diet contributes to reduced immune function. When you eat a healthy whole foods organic diet not only will you enhance your immune function, you will improve your overall health, energy and mood. Here is what to do:Don’t eat any foods that have artificial anything in them (colors, preservatives, flavors, additives, etc.)Reduce and/or eliminate processed foods. Processed foods include crackers, bread, pasta, bread, bagels, and just about anything that comes out of a box or bag. Processed foods have virtually no nutrition and don’t help your immune system one piece. Sugar robs minerals in the body and sugar destroys immune function. Stop eating it entirely as you have scabies. Eat whole, organic foods, like what you see in the produce section of any supermarket. This may mean learning how to cook and prepare meals. It’s worth the effort! Yes, it costs more, which is a fantastic reason to shop at Whole Foods or a local co-op or health food shop. Changing to a natural lifestyle will help you today, and in the future. Here’s a great book on how to adopt a more healthy and natural lifestyle:8) Maintain Your Environment CleanOne of the very unfortunate realities of living with scabies is that the scabies mite will fall off or crawl from its host and can live on a surface for up to three days. That means potential re-infestation OR giving scabies to a friend, roommate or partner. So in addition to what you will need to do to your body each day, you should also deal with your surrounding environment, clothing, bedding, computer station, etc.. Since we cannot find these small devil scabies, we have to assume that they are everywhere we are, every day. Which just makes everything even more complicated, but here’s what you must do each day:Change Bedding Each DayNow, that may mean washing the same bedding each day, which is what I did. Wash in warm water and dry on the latest heat for 60 minutes to make sure that the scabies are murdered. Water won’t kill them, but heat will. If you don’t wash the same bedding each day, then place the bedding into a plastic trash bag to make sure they don’t crawl around. Lowering your exposure to toxic chemicals is also a fantastic idea and I highly recommend and personally use nontoxic BioKleen Laundry Detergent. So, how can we know if they are on the ground or not? So, we must vacuum every day. It just so happens that I had purchased a very powerful Shark Navigator Vacuum with HEPA filtration a few months before my outbreak and I have to say, it is my favorite all-time vacuum cleaner and it worked really well for not cleaning the floor, but also all my surfaces using their wand attachment. One way to decrease vacuuming and cleaning would be not to go anyplace in your home — stay in only one area for the most part. Never wear the same clothing or even wear the same shoes the following day. For clothing, I suggest placing them straight into the washer after use, if you can. And for shoes, try to do a rotation; if that isn’t feasible, some folks place their shoes in the freezer immediately. At the very least, wear various socks every day. You could try placing Diotomaceous Earth into your shoes — that’s what I did for my”home shoes” Supposedly this shell fragment will cut to the scabies and/or dry them out and kill them. I don’t know if it is accurate, but that’s about the only use I found for Diotomaceous Earth after I attempted slathering it on my skin blended with oil and decided that wasn’t going to work for me. Since we sit in our cars for long periods of time there’s great reason to suspect that scabies will crawl onto the seat and everywhere at a car. You can use a self-serve car wash to thoroughly vacuum the interior of your car as often as possible. Another choice is to use a disinfectant. BenzRid is used in hospitals and is intended for this very purpose. For murdering scabies, this is probably the ideal surface killing agent on the market and I used it in my surfaces. Do Not Forget Your Desk, Laptop & KeyboardAs the majority of us do a lot work at a computer it’s extremely important to not forget to clean our workstation frequently, including our laptop and/or our keyboard. I used my vacuum to clean these areas literally each and every day. So now you know that you have scabies. Do the right thing and be extra, extra careful to not transmit them to anyone else. Be aware of hugs, seeing friends, where you sit out and about, being at the gym, being on your workplace, etc.. Take as many precautions as you can to make that the scabies in your body won’t be infecting anyone else. Within minutes of figuring out I had scabies — based on my symptoms — I was online searching for and reviewing all the possible ways to eliminate them. I watched YouTube videos, I went to medical websites and read them, I moved into scabies forums and read literally hundreds of stories, I used a variety of search phrases to locate individuals who made websites after they got rid of the scabies, I poured over scabies product websites, and I signed up for Amazon Prime because I was ordering so may products from Amazon it only made sense to not pay for shipping. It is advisable to sign up as well!Whenever I read that someone tried something and it helped, or they say a product cured them of scabies, I purchased it and tried it. I spent over $7,000 on such a huge variety of treatments and yet, just a couple were really worth getting. Bear in mind that at the time I figured out I had scabies they had spread fairly well, and the early treatments I did burnt my skin that slowed down other treatments. I tried cayenne pepper on my scabies — double. Here are a couple of things I tried that weren’t effective. Well, at least not noticeable — this is another problem: how do we really know if we killed off a few or few dozen scabies mites until our skin actually clears up? We don’t. So this is part guesswork too. So below I include scabies treatments that are either ineffective or damaging, based on my experience.
AVOID THESE BATH WATER TREATMENTS
Salt: I attempted salt, for example, salt used for treating hard water that comes in 40lb bags and I took these salt baths each day for at least three weeks, maybe more. Absolutely nothing. Not suggested. Tea Tree Essential Oil: employing any essential oil at a bath isn’t a fantastic idea because it won’t distribute, but rather, float to the surface. I know this is a”go-to” treatment but it burnt and irritated my skin and actually set me way back because of that. Pennyroyal Essential Oil: Someone had posted that this essential oil — used in baths — could kill scabies and that it was prescribed with a holistic physician. I tried it for months with no results. It also floated to the top. I want you to be aware that it’s deemed toxic and really at 20 drops in the water it burnt my skin. I don’t suggest Pennyroyal for scabies. Clove Essential Oil: Same as another oils — floats to the surface. Additionally, this stuff burns. I also used it in my scabies rashes at times and couldn’t tolerate the burning. I don’t advise clove oil for scabies. I tried Nair Hair Remover for my scabies and burnt myself terribly. NOT RECOMMENDED!
AVOID THESE TOPICAL TREATMENTS FOR SCABIES
Cayenne Pepper: So this seemed very promising to me. Mix some cayenne pepper with oil, apply to scabies lesions and allow the pepper burn the scabies to death. I was all for it and tried cayenne pepper in my skin, twice. This was fairly early on. It felt very hot and burnt, but unfortunately I didn’t observe a decrease in scabies and more importantly, I had residual burning out of the cayenne after the second application. I don’t advise cayenne pepper for scabies. Diotomaceous Earth: You will see this a lot when you search for scabies remedies. I bought a large bag of it and made a paste out of it with some oil and applied to scabies lesions. It is messy, doesn’t apply easily, doesn’t stay, and I never knew how the wet version would work as it sounds as though we wanted it dry so that the shell could cut through the scabies. I searched and searched for validation of the treatment. And I tried it. No results. I don’t suggest Diotomaceous Earth for scabies, except maybe in your shoes and on non-host surfaces. Other Essential Oils: I tried several. Here is the deal: an essential oil may kill scabies, but at what concentration and what will the impact be on open wounds caused by the two scabies and chemical burns? My skin was a mess in so many places. I was in so much pain in the scabies and all the various things I as trying. I am all for natural products, including essential oils, however, they are extremely powerful and caustic on open skin. This is a large reason why I changed to heat and bleach baths once I learned about them: neither causes terrible burns to the skin yet kills scabies. Salicylic Acid Skin Peel 30 percent: Some individuals used a skin peel for to the scabies. I tried a very tiny amount of it, and yeah, with a skin peel to kill scabies was painful, and I never did it again. I don’t advise Salicylic Acid Skin Peel 30% for scabies. Nair Hair Remover: Some people said that the fleas can get into the hair follicles and so that using Nair Hair Remover would burn them out as it burns the hair. I tried this and left it in my own skin for the maximum suggested time. Big mistake. I wound up using a chemical burn on my arm that lasted for well over a month. It was terrible. I don’t suggest Nair Hair Remover for scabies. Coconut Oil: If you search the world wide web, coconut oil includes a lot for scabies treatment, usually by using it as a carrier oil for tea tree oil and other oils. I really like coconut oil and before scabies I was using a natural cream coconut oil each day on my arms and thighs. But later, as I used plain coconut oil and tea tree oil in my body I simply became sensitive to it, even with no tea tree oil. Lately, I came across a blog radio interview with many guests and they were saying that scabies feed coconut oil. For all I know, that could be true. If you are going to use an oil in your skin, I propose a milder oil such as olive oil, neem oil or CeraVe cream (mentioned earlier). Hulda Clark Zapper: should you not know what that is, that’s okay. Should you understand what it is, I tried a couple of frequencies a couple of times but without any good sources of advice that I abandoned that project. I do have a wonderful Zapper.
AVOID THESE INTERNAL TREATMENTS FOR SCABIES
Ivermectin Prescription Medication: I tried a lot of the stuff.My physician prescribed enough for me to test at a higher dose and using a more regular dose, and that I did so for months. Did not work. So, I don’t suggest Ivermectin for scabies. Chrysanthemum Flowers and Tea: I read that an Acupuncturist had prescribed this internally, and this flower or one of its near cousins will kill critters, therefore I tried it. A lot. I tried the freeze-dried version that you add to warm water and I used the dried flowers in tea and in my bath. I didn’t notice a difference. And may I point out this stuff isn’t cheap. I don’t suggest Chrysanthemum flowers or tea to get scabies.
The Scabies Cure Conclusion
My time with scabies was traumatic, depressing, difficult and lonely. The absolute worst part about having scabies was trying a variety of ways to get rid of them with no success which meant I never had absolute assurance that I would ***ever*** get rid of them. I have read hundreds of stories of others who felt exactly the same way and that is one of the reasons why I created this website: to give a valid step-by-step action plan to cure scabies. After reviewing a massive amount of data, reading hundreds and hundreds of stories and most importantly, curing my own scabies after multiple failures, I am confident that I am giving you good advice.
