Hi,I was a sufferer of scabies for many years. But my skin complaints started with chronic dermatitis from my employment in heavy industry. After many years of suffering. I finally met a clever dermatologist that discovered that the rashes over most of my body were caused from the creams meant to treat me. I was sensitive to certain chemicals in them.
My skin was greatly weakened during that time and left me vulnerable to scabies. In fact I became highly infested and a danger to others. The pills and potions medical fraternity were near useless. In the past scabies had demoralized armies. So they represent a formidable enemy to personal health and vitality.
I tried many methods to eradicate them. But the best methodology I developed myself.
To eliminate the eggs throw half a kilo to a kilo of bicarb in a hot bath. Use an exfoliation glove and soak the body for some hours. This erodes the shells of the eggs and makes them prematurely hatch. So that the nymphs then emerge in a weakened state. Just how we like them!
But the adults are pretty tough. So to eliminate them and stop them from further laying eggs needs a different approach. Scabies breathe through their shells. So we need to flood the skin with an agent that's friendly. But effectively deprives the nymphs and adults of air.
After the bath apply a mixture of solidified fat or dripping, mixed with ten percent baby oil, and five percent tea tree oil. The baby oil improves penetration and reduces the solidification of the fat. On the other hand the tea tree oil is an irritant to the scabies. Especially those in the nymph stage. Apply every four hours over the entire body. As you'll find them in places that you weren't aware.
Don't bath or shower! Three days should pass and most of them should be suffocated. The fat belts them and the tea tree oil reduces their capacity to bite. When they emerge they are near dead and not aggressive. Don't dig for them and scar the skin. Put more fat on those areas where they've established nest sites. They'll emerge naturally for they've got no choice! Rubbing firmly over infected areas assists them leaving.
On the fourth day have a hot bath and soap away the fat. Then start the procedure again. Bicarb the bastards and suffocate them with fat again. In subsequent months bicarb and fat one day a week. You'll find the process very skin friendly and should be a regular thing for dealing with all sorts of invaders.
Also I have a three year old son and he keeps getting re-infected even before I do I need help. His skin is all discolored and I feel so Bad I think I gat this sexually from someone I slept with. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE any suggestions because I used permethrin 2 times and nothing helps. I think I have also infected other member and I need to tell them.
Lol, though the fats with oils is sound advice. Instead of baking soda bath [which seems sort of stupid], take a distilled vinegar bath [search the internet for a proper bath instruction], but you ask why? Reason is, common knowledge dictates that scabies eggs are the traditional calcium based shells, or even easier, they are made of protein. What happens when you put an egg into a cup of vinegar? [Don't know go find out on the internet] That is the same effect we want on the scabies eggs. So after you exfoliate yourself with running water, do a hot distilled vinegar bath [with your proper instruction], then proceed to suffocate the daylights out of the gnarly buggers. After, stop sleeping around with people you don't intend on getting scabies from ;P. Good luck, Science out. [Credit yourself though Woadwunner :D]
