Note photo 4 which illustrates the typical tunnel under the skin created by the scabby burrowing. Photo 3 is good because it compares scabies to other rashes. There are 2 kinds of skin eruptions.
1- where infant scabies dig into the skin to molt & wait for a male to mate
2- female burrows under the skin to lay eggs.
Eggs are hatching for a full 6 weeks after being laid
Here is a good series of photos: http://hardinmd.lib.uiowa.edu/dermnet/scabies2.html
The solution for scabies is mission impossible because they have grown resistant to the drugs used to kill them, and because eggs continue to hatch for 6 weeks after you have killed the scabies, they will die within 3 days if removed from the host.
My solution is to mix 2/3 grapeseed oil with 1/3 Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) into a spray bottle. Apply to the skin morning & night. Sprinkle DE into the bedding each day with a salt shaker being careful not to breath it. All scabies & itching will be gone within 1 week. Continue treatments for 6 weeks to kill off the hatchlings. DE kills them on contact & the Grapeseed Oil smothers their breathing tube.
Scabies is the affliction from HELL ! A true HORROR story. People have suffered with it for YEARS, lost everything. Most doctors are USELESS and won't come near it. It is exactly the same as Mange in dogs. Some desperate people have even gone to a vet for Mange treatments.
Getting rid of the itching after you kill them is the 2nd battle.
Dish washing liquid applied to the itching area will bring near immediate relief.
Apply it and rub it in.
It will foam up a little bit,but just let it dry.
It works on other itching as well.
If you don't like the idea of using dish washing liquid try your favorite soap or shampoo.
LAVA Soap works too.
Vicks Vapor Rub worked good too in my early stages of Scabies,when i was desperately trying different stuff for the itching.
I should have said in my post above that all itching is gone in 1 week, the Grapeseed Oil & Diatomacius Earth kills all the scabies, but not their eggs which are laid under the skin. For this reason the treatments must be kept up for 3 months to kill all the hatchlings that come out from under the skin.
Your soap idea is also good, but must also be kept up for 3 months to kill all the hatchlings.
