    Grizz, thanks for the helpful answers. checked out the morgellon's symptoms. i have no fibers. i also looked at some pictures of scabies mite burrows, which looked similar to the ones i had. so i am sure it is scabies.
    I also was partially successful in treating with tea trea oil and neem over the summer and actually thought i was cured for some time. i know scabies normally doesn't go to the face and scalp, except in small children and supposedly humid climates. i live in california btw. Same thing happened last time i treated with neem and tea tree oil mix. i started feeling sensations in face and scalp. then treated those areas with same combo and the sensations went away. over the 2 years though they have always stayed below the chin until i started applying oils below. Seems the oils just forced them to go upwards towards the face and scalp. i'm sure they prefer it below the neck.
    i thought that the pinpricking sensation was the females making molts in the skin? correct me if i'm wrong. did u feel any pinpricking or bites?
    Today is day 6 of using your treatment and so far this is the best i've felt in awhile. so something is working. thanks. brok.

      grizz,
      there was a bird nest at my only house that i lived at over a year ago when i first got this. we have moved since then. we do not have any animals. i suspect that i got infected a little over 2 years ago when i stayed one night at a hostel. i ended up sleeping on the couch in the living room of the hostel intead of the bed. seems that was a big mistake. i felt and noticed the symptoms about 6-8 weeks later.

        Well then if you see the burrows under the skin, that does clinch it. Only Scabies does that. I never felt the pinpricking sensation, but I did have the burrows under my skin and MADDENING itching that kept me awake most of the night.

        From my notes, here is the lifestyle of the Scabie:
        SCABIES LIFE CYCLE
        =====================
        Nicely done but incomplete: How Long Can Scabies Eggs Live? | eHow.com
        1. Infestation begins with a single pregnant FEMALE mite. Once impregnated, she leaves her "Molting Pouch" to find a new host or to make her new permanent burrow. Male dies shortly after mating.

        2. She lays 2 to 3 eggs every day that are approximately 0.10 to 0.15 mm in length. After 3 to 4 days, her eggs hatch inside the skin burrow. 10% of the eggs hatch males, 90% females. The 6 legged larvae remain in the female's burrow for up to one day, and then leave the burrow to excavate their own Molting Pouch. Scabies won't lay eggs in your environment--the mites lay eggs ONLY in human skin burrows.

        3. Larvae grow and change form by shedding their exoskeleton (molting) three times before they reach adulthood (larva, protonymph, tritonymph, adult). Each molting takes 2-3 days, and each molting requires the excavation of new molting pouch or hair follicle. After the final molt, the mite has reached reproductive maturity with 8 legs. Males leave the pouch to find a female. Pregnant females may leave the pouch to look for an ideal location to dig a new burrow.

        4. Meanwhile, rgw pregnant female continues to lengthen her burrow and laying eggs until ( 60 to 90 eggs in all ) she dies in about 1 month. Burrows take an S shape.

        5. Adult males are innocuous, residing in shallow areas on the skin and feeding on their human host until they find the molting pouch of a female mite. They are attracted to the openings of female mites molting pouches, which contains large quantities of feces. [make sure the males die while searching for a female]

        6. Newly impregnated mites tend to search for areas where there are folds and crevices, such as between the fingers, under the arms, on the wrists, around the waist, the breast area (on women), and around male genitalia.

        7. Scabies can live on clothing or other materials for up to 72 hours. The mites usually only live for two to three days without human skin contact.

        8. Once the mites die, their bodies [and feces] still remain beneath the surface of the skin and hence they continue to develop skin rashes, itching and allergies.

        Moral of this story: Stop the males from searching for a female. He is crawling on the surface and stop females from finding a new burrow, using skin creams. Best time to kill mites is in their molting pouch. Remember every day she was laying 3 to 4 eggs that will hatch every day and leave the burrow.

        Translation: Every day new hatchlings are leaving the burrow to make new "Molting Pouches." They must be stopped with skin creams and daily soaking until the last of the eggs have hatched. Pinpricks are the hatchling making a new Molting Pouch.

        These are Monsters From Hell. I caught my scabies infection from a sweater I bought at a garage sale. Dummy me - I wore it home and those Scabies must have been starving because they got me good !

          Grizz,

          How many others do you know of have tried your treatment plan? And were they all successful? Thanks

            brok,
            Since I've posted my cure to public message boards I don't know how many others have tried it. And I therefore don't know of the success rate.

            It worked for me and that is all I care about. Please do update this thread when you think you are cured.

                  DE is a wonderful thing.
                  I used it for my cats ear mites, just mixed it with a little coconut oil and applied to their ears.
                  It's great for internal parasites/worms, something else I've given my cats instead of that vile pesticide the vet likes to prescribe.
                  It works on ants, cockroaches, any pesky bug problem you may have. It's good for use in gardening, but be VERY careful
                  not to get on the flowers so we don't kill off anymore bees...we need them !
                  Just be sure to get food grade, not the stuff for your pools =)

                    An additional cure proven to work is this:
                    * Dilute bleach with 3 parts water and some Arm&Hammer unscented detergent and after spraying myself after showers they were gone
                    * For the hair use turpentine oil, leave it on the scalp for a few day then wash it out and you can apply it the next couple of shampoos later to be sure,
                    Complete details at this message thread at the Topix/Scabies forum
                    the cure is so simple, I can't believe it...... - Topix

                    A variation of the bleach spray is 1 cup of bleach added to the bathwater:

                    I hesitate to post the Topix message thread because there are just too many Trolls, mis-information & BS. However, in between all the clutter, there are a few valuable & worthwhile tips.

                    PS)
                    I can also add that diluting bleach with 9 parts water does kill off toenail fungus & athletes foot.
                    I am suspicious of diluting bleach with 3 parts water. I'm afraid it may damage the skin. I think it should be tested on a patch of skin first to make sure there are no bad reactions.

                      Thanks grizz. I've used the DE/GSO mix on the face and haven't felt anything else since. Also sprayed some on the scalp during the day. Have been washing my hair with a tto shampoo combined with 10% sulfur and neem. Haven't felt any pinpricks in the scalp in 2-3 days. I spot treated problem areas with 10% sulfur but that seems to have burned the skin a little so quitting that. Still feeling pinpricks mainly in the feet. Gonna stick with your program as long as the improvement continues. Don't think I wanna use bleach on the skin. Seems a bit dangerous. Your support and ideas making this ordeal easier. Thanks.

                        Please keep us informed of your progress on this thread. Also note that LOW sulfur soap and LOW sulfur cream were used in my cure. This is in my notes.

                        The cream I used:
                        * Use low sulfur soap [2%], Sulfer8 Brand Shampoo.
                        * IMPORTANT! Rub Sulfer8 Brand Medicated Cream over breakout areas after every shower. This is similar to Vaseline in texture . I consider this to be essential to this cure.
                        * All Sulfur8 products are low sulfur 2%
                        * More sulfur is not better, and can cause Dermatitis.

                          Grizz, just want to thank you for all of the effort you put into posting all of this. My daughter and I seem to have picked up some kind of skin mite and have been itching horribly with little bumps and it is spreading. I don't have the DE yet but the grapeseed oil helped a lot today on my arm. My scalp is the worst though and I oiled it up with grapeseed oil and it itched terribly at first but seems to be subsiding. Hopefully, we can arrest this before it gets horrible. Thanks again. BTW I love the GSO on my skin. It absorbs so quickly and gets ungreasy fast. I will definitely use it more as a moisturizer.

                            Shat,
                            Best of luck to you. Scabies is the most horrible affliction and some people have been known to suffer for YEARS because doctors simply refuse to get seriously involved and because the Scabies Mite have become resistant to the common ( and dangerous ) drugs used to treat it. I have been free of this horror for 13 months now. The wife LOVES GSO after her showers, prevents her skin from drying out. I still use GSO on my feet every morning to keep them baby fresh.

                            Please keep us informed of your progress.

                                I've had it before and just went to a doctor and got a cream. It was gone in about two days.

                                But then again, I'm around pyrethrins/permethrins and other anti-bug chemicals all the time so applying some to myself doesn't really freak me out all that much. (neither would ivermectin, which you could take internally for this).

                                Given that the symptoms are pretty obvious and it's easy for them to test for it, I can't imagine a doctor ignoring a scabies case for years, particularly when it's so common. That just seems weird.
