Have been dealing with these demons since July. Did two Permethrin treatments. The second one seemed to have done the trick. Except for the fact that my already, fair and sensitive skin has been burnt up. I have several sores on my chest and belly area, along with blistering and very rough patches. My neck is fine one day, and then turns red and blisters up the next. I'm constantly seeing the little black specks coming out, and I'm not convinced that they are dead! I also see white bulbous looking things. At the moment I'm fighting them all off in my private area. Dear God who knew it would be so difficult? I am at my wits end! I started the borax and peroxide in the bath yesterday. Burns! How many times daily are any of you doing the bath? Help!

I have had scabies 5 times now, getting reinfected every year, and I think it might be from my dog. I tried EVERYTHING to no avail....until I tried the BORAX-PEROXIDE solution. Nothing works better, and it completely cures me until I somehow get reinfected the following summer. I have found that the actual ratios are not important. I just put some hydrogen peroxide 3% in a small cup, and start adding borax until the borax will no longer dissolve. I then rub this mixture over the affected areas. I let it air dry, and about 10-20 minutes later THE ITCHING STOPS!!! Seems to take a couple of weeks to get rid of the infection, and I am cured for months. I have not tried the bath.... I know that the peroxide is used as a penetrating agent on the skin, and the borax is what actually kills the mite. I prefer the direct application. I think I am going to tell the wife that the dog stays outside from now on. Good luck to you!

As a naturopath, my heart goes out to all of you infected and being reinfected with scabies. One major source of infection and reinfection is something many people do NOT want to hear, and go DEAF when I tell them or end up full of hate! I even had a female M.D. get very angry with me when I showed her the scientific proof! Her reaction is due mostly to brainwashing of the now 60 billion USD dollar pet industry. The source of the infection and reinfection is keeping a dog or cat indoors. There is a great deal of misinformation on this matter! One is the fact that since scabies are species specific, and cannot complete their life cycle on a host they are not designed for, then the issue of keeping a dog or cat indoors it does not matter. The REALITY is that a human can pass scabies to a dog or cat, and the dog or cat can spread the scabies all around the home, apartment, car, any living environment. So a human can treat themself, then easily become reinfected by direct contact of rubbing, petting, and scratching the dog or cat, or from the environment the animal has been in. By the way, less I be accused of hating animals, I was raised on a small farm, love animals, and we kept our dogs and cats outdoors, even in winter, with deep snow and freezing temperatures for many decades with NO HARMFUL EFFECTS to these animals! Of course we built dog houses etc for them and provided correct bedding. Our pets were always healthier than those kept indoors. The advice of keeping pets outdoors, and washing your hands after petting them, not allowing them to lick on you, or share your outdoor furniture also helps keep you free of intestinal parasites! Particularly important for children as their immune system is not fully developed until age 12.

Tried the borax this morning. Can I ask how long was it until you all saw symptoms stop? I've tried everything and I'm slowly going insane.

Reply to Had enough of London, Wood Green:
Scabies mites die when exposed to a temperature of 50C / 122F for 10 minutes. With such careful and hot washing I doubt that your laundry is re-infecting you. Something else is going on. Can you see any mites on you skin? Have you been diagnosed with a mite infection?

This might just explain why you keep getting re-infected.

How do you treat laundry? Washing on a hot wash, two hours in the dryer and ironing and I'm still getting bitten! I started putting a cup of borax in with the wash to no avail. I've now had scabies for seven weeks. Permethrin soothes the itch for a day. I've tried clove and almond oil, diatomaceous earth, none of them are working simply because I keep re-infecting myself with my clean clothes. I no longer use towels and dry with my hair dryer. I also only have a shower. How would I use borax and hydrogen peroxide? A spray maybe? Any guidance with the washing would be much appreciated.

I've had scabies twice in my life. The first time it was mild. It took a month before it spread all over my body and I cured it with three doses of Permethrin cream. The second time was a very aggressive form of scabies. Within a week, I was completely covered head to toe. The Permethrin cream just made these scabies angrier. They would lie low for a day after the cream, then come back with vengeance. After countless hours of research, this is what cured me: hot baths with two cups of Borax and one cup hydrogen peroxide and neem leaf powder sprinkled on top of the bath water. When I stepped out of the bath, I would be covered in neem leaf. I let it sit on my skin for 15-20 minutes before washing it off. I did this for several days. In addition, I cleaned the apartment and my clothes daily. That was a year ago and I have been scabies-free since.
