I contracted scabies twice, traveling to European destinations that did not have a hot enough dryer to kill the bugs from the bedding. The first time my family contracted it, we used daily baths of Tree Tea Oil and nightly washing of bedding, vacuuming constantly. It still took 5 months time as the permethrin prescribed by the dermatologist did not seem to work. The second time my family contracted scabies, it seemed we had a very difficult variety and oral ivermectin and permethrin were prescribed. After a month on the medication we were still dealing with it and realized that our dog was a carrier. The dermatologist stated that they don't live on dogs. However we realized that they can be the carriers and transfer them back to humans. We recently started using borax for scabies and bathing the dog nightly in peroxide and borax and are hopeful that this will do the trick. Also, by the way, they are highly contagious as I realize all my friends are scratching, because I am a hugger! Good Luck!

Hydrogen peroxide worked for me after the first bath. Instant relief. I used the standard prescription scabicides but was still itching like crazy. I'm really really happy with this cheap and very effective solution. Thanks everyone who shared their story.

Not sure where I picked this up and not sure I want to know. The borax, epsom salt, peroxide mix gave me immediate relief!

I've just read these comments and I'm really freaking out - however it's good to know others are going through this living hell and I'm not alone! Been fighting scabies now for three weeks but I've realized I've had them quite a while and just thought it was my eczema. I'm 48 and always had a dog by my side all my life. My little dog had terrible infestation of the worst fleas I've ever seen. About a month later I started noticing strange things on my bed sheets. BTW.. I'm a clean person, clean house, clean body. I started to learn that I've got scabies. Pure hell I'm going through. I've just read about the pet or dog thing in these comments and I've tried to treat him for dog scabies and he seems fine? Maybe I can't get better because he sleeps, eats and breathes ME! He has to be with me all the time which is exhausting for me at times but he's a rescue you see and he's let's say, difficult. So now I'm on a research of my dog's skin.. will let you all know my findings ASAP. Oh and besides my freaking out and all I'm so glad to find others fighting these horrible things. Love to you all.

Hi, thank you all for this fantastic group, this is totally new for me. Mites exploded in my life after a long super-stressful period when everything that could go wrong really did. After 6-7 weeks of renovating the 30 flats I live in they put plastic all around, then changed our windows without installing ventilation for fresh air. They totally closed off all air by putting tape over all windows probably because of painting and other work. One week after that I woke up one morning with itching rashes under my breasts. I have never had anything like that, no eczema or something so it was really a bit worrying. Then because of where they were located and my age, 57 I went to the doc to check if it was herpes zoster, we call it beltrose in Swedish . Doc said no, it looks more as if something has bitten you! One week after that, and after seeing another doc, I had a typical rosacea mark on my left cheek, acne on the other and all over my chest and back, itching, crawling. I thought I’d caught scabies, but two doctors said no. No one even had a microscope and one told me to get that ghost out of my brain and get some psychiatry.
Question: Can it be that when we got no fresh air, and there was air coming IN where dirty old air is supposed to get OUT that I have caught this from one of my neighbours? I am newly divorced, my youngest son 20 years old lived with me at this time and his eyes became red and he started complaining of itching skin at the same time. This was November and two weeks later I told him to move to his dad since I was afraid he would also get this thing from hell. He is now fine, but I have had a living hell.
I am depressed, have had to clean EVERYTHING all the time because of a black yucky powder with black spots that lays everywhere in this flat if I’m not fast enough to wipe it off. All my carpets and stuff I don't need is in my store now. I don’t vacuum clean, instead I use superhot water 90C morning and evening to clean everything, bedclothes etc.
I have heard from other neighbours that they got red eyes, runny nose and they all complain over the poor ventilation but I don’t dare to ask them about this. Waited since November to have someone from the company that owns the building to come and inspect. They finally made contact with the environment department and others so things are probably going to speed up now, but I just need to know how I could get this shit without hugging anyone else than my dog. Very short fur Amstaff Rottweiler who has nothing in his fur and no itching. My grownup kids are all well. Can this spread from ventilation between apartments? I have gone from having a big family, dog, girlfriends, sons living with me a lot to now being totally on my own in this apartment since first week of December. I have not worked a lot because of this exhausting regimen to keep everything clean. I can do work from home, but need to see customers in the health food business and I panic when thinking that this will continue.
I want to share one trick before I stop. If you want to clean up your pores follicles put pure aloe vera jelly all over your face or a spot you want to treat. Let it stay for 2-3 minutes, then rub on AlkoGel (alcohol, aloe vera). We can buy it cheaply in the grocery store here in Stockholm. You will soon see white, greasy things popping up. Continue to rub and pick the white stuff away. I use wet paper towels. Rinse with clean water and spray colloidal silver. I also use one glass of water mixed with 2 table spoons with MSM (Methy-Sulfonyl-Methane). This will freshen up all the affected area and has been the best of all products I have tried. But after reading all these comments I will for sure try the hydrogen peroxide. SOOOO GRATEFUL for this group! The aloe, AlkoGel, colloidal silver and MSM has made my life better and my skin much more beautiful again, but still I have the itching and biting on my feet and legs. I don’t go barefoot in here any longer! Big hug to all of you suffering from this devastating creep.

I totally agree with several of the comments about Clove Oil, which I am just starting to use and take internally. I have suffered from these mites since 2012. Now both of my feet are the sizes of footballs. I have used hydrogen peroxide 3% to spray on my feet, it helps but really stings due to so many applications. I won’t stop using it but hopefully clove oil will be my saviour. Due to 2 knee replacements it is almost impossible for me to be able to get up out of the tub so I have only done showers since 2003 and now with the feet like they are, I purchases a plastic container from Walmart that is just wide enough for two, used to be skinny feet, and deep enough to almost reach my knees. I fill it with as much hot water as I can stand with one cup of HP 3% and 1 cup of Borax, soak in this as long as the water stays hot to warm. Good ole credit cards! You’ve heard stories on how to use them for dozen of things, well I use one to scrape my feet and legs with it after my soak and you sure see a lot of stuff that comes off on the card. I’m going to mix up a mixture of the clove oil with some other oils to put on my feet and legs after the soak and scrape. Here I am, just turned 90 and never had a bug in my life and this is what NV has given me. Never had a bug in Texas and hope I can get back there before my time is up!
Blessings to all of you who have offered your cures. It’s hard to keep your sanity but don t give up. I could wring the necks of a million so called doctors for not going to a medical school who taught about these things!
One thing I would caution anyone who has an old vacuum cleaner with a fan, please be careful if you are using diatomaceous earth powder on your carpets. This stuff is wonderful but don’t use it if your vac has a fan, it will clog up the fan and break it. This happened twice to me before the repair man suggested I stop using DE or not to use that particular vacuum. Each time I used the vac to clean up DE it cost me over $200.00. That kind of money sure could have helped me to buy Clove and other oils for my blasted critters.

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!

I have been fighting these monsters for over a year now. Now my husband has it too! After 3 rounds of Permethrin cream I returned to the ER on a day when I was losing my mind over this. The doctor called me a methamphetamine user five times while there and told me there was nothing on my skin! I am planning to start the borax-HP today.
