How did you realise you were healed from scabies in one week?
I have read somewhere that after applying prescribed creams you can have new bites for 2-4 weeks and then you are healed.
That is easy. I was not cured in one week. The itching stopped so I was able to sleep. You must keep applying the D-E Mix for 3 additional months to be certain that all of the hatchling babies are killed. Babies continue hatching under your skin for 8 to 12 weeks, THEN you are cured.
this is another option
I also had this problem when I read your post I had already started with my own treatment.
I wanted to make sure that I was well before posting what I did and I have been completely well for the last 4 months. I was a real nightmare and now with my results I hope to help just as you are.
For a year and a half until this January after countless dermatologists, 37 tubes or permathrin, many doses of iver, oils, I finally find a cure. My family work in medical field too.
I don't know how we got it but I was the first my hands were whitish flaky and I had a rash on inside of arms, wrists, that is how it started with me. then my baby had it then my husband. we had the classic symptoms.
We tried everything and after doing everything I was prescribed I called pharmacies in other countries and everyone of them said sulphur is the only thing that works. I can honestly tell you I was suicidal I could not take it anymore.
the treatment is different than it is here in the states.
but my whole family did it and now I can finally say we have been normal over 4 months.
You have to do this and EVERYONE in your house.
we took 8 days off made meals in advance for a whole week (cereal and sandwiches for breakfast and lunch) easier that way
have to get a prescription for precipitated sulfur 8 to 10% for adults and 4% for kids & toddlers
buy or have these that you will dispose after 7-14 days
2 sets of these each:
underwear (or more if you can dispose of)
lots of disposable gloves
two or three 5 galon buckets
two big pots
if you have sensitive skin please the lower % of precipitated sulfur because it is very drying and will hurt otherwise
you will shower at nite. rub sulphur on skin (not necessary on face if you don't have it there I did have it on my eyes)ask for help applying. make sure you apply in every inch of body neck down with special care on the bad spots (these twice a day)
and hands put gloves on and go to bed.
you will shower only at nite
next day boil water and soak bedding and pijamas in water wait until it cools off then wash in washer in hot water. put in dryer. this is for the next day. repeat every day for 7 days.
I know it is gonna be hard and you are gonna hate it and everyone around you.
the eight day shower in the morning and you just have to do it at nite and so on until the 14 day. if there is kids in your house do this only for 7 days. apply lots of bodylotion on everyone because it will be very drying drink lots of water. please post so I know how you are doing.
I know this is not an easy treatment because people do not want to take a whole week off from work just to be at home but I can tell you that after treatment is over you won't have any more itching at all.
I think that is well worth it because after a year and a half of fighting these bugs a week was nothing in comparasion of just waiting to see if one the other treatment had work just to have horrible itching just a week or days later. I had nothing to loose.
Thank you so much for sharing your cure for Scabies! I suggest we learn everything about the Life Cycle of the Enemy. Google Scabies Life Cycle, then we use these facts to fight against them.
One fact that we can use against them, is that they will die without fresh blood within a week. Therefore, we need only hang clothes in the closet for more than 1 week before wearing them. ( boiling not required ) Ditto stack clothing in drawers for more than a week before wearing again. To be certain they died, I left clothing in the closet & drawers for 1 month before wearing. Last in-first out.
I also used sulfur, however I used low sulfur cream & soap. I don't know how much sulfur is required to kill the buggers, but the low sulfur soap & cream worked for me, so I didn't suffer skin problems.
Also, the female hides into "Fox Holes" dug into the skin to molt & mature and then waits for a male to come along to get fertilized, only then does she start burrowing under the skin to start laying her eggs. This means for a week or 2, she is vulnerable to things applied to the skin, such as sulfur soaps & creams. Ditto for the males that are crawling around on the skin surface looking for females to fertilize.
However I still have my theory that the Grapeseed Oil that I applied to my skin 2 times a day actually killed them by suffocation, by blocking their breathing tube. The Diatamacious Earth that I mixed into the Grapeseed Oil may have been overkill, and not necessary. However at the time, I was not willing to waste a single day experimenting, because I was so desperate. So just food for thought for the next person suffering this horrible affliction.
Another possibility comes to mind instead of boiling, is to let the dirty clothing sit in the hamper for more than a week before washing ( preferably a month ) so they starve to death without their blood food supply.
It is just not necessary to burn carpeting & furniture, get divorced, suicides, lose your job, move to a new house, and other panic measures taken by people. I've seen all the horror stories. Just be smart & study the creature and its weaknesses.
Finally getting a chance to put my 2 cents in...and thank you for your guidance. You WERE a lifesaver. I have 5 kids. My kids started at a new school in August 2012. Our kindergartener picked up the scabies from her locker partner. The %$#@@ school nurse still doesn't believe me. The bites first started showing up in November 2012. At first I thought they were the chicken pox, but alas they were not they were much more sinister, it was SCABIES. So after going the traditional route of the pharmaceutical pesticide cream first and it didn't work, I was desperate to find a more natural cure that WOULD work. I stumbled upon your postings. Thank you Grizz! I did everything you recommended, but with having the 5 kids, I did complete bed washings every weekend in addition to "putting our furniture/beds up on blocks" (The pans of diatamaceous earth) and sprinkling the beds every day with the DE in the salt shaker. I will say that for the Grapeseed oil concoction I did half GSO and half Coconut oil (I found that coconut oil absorbed better) as well as adding drops of Neem, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus and Lavendar oils and DE to the mix. I read on another website that: Neem, Karanja, and Tea Tree oils kill scabies, while: Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Lavendar deter them.
Well it worked, after 8 weeks of following this protocol of 2x daily having EVERYONE in the house apply the oil/de concoction as well as other thorough cleaning they were gone. Praise the Lord!
Grizz I have to tell you that when you read the truth it makes sense to you. When I read your post and saw your background as an engineer I thought. Bingo that makes sense. Thank you again.
Praise the Lord ! I'm so happy for you. However I now have a MUCH better idea, that I'm certain will work even better than the D-E mix. (It has not been tested yet on anyone with scabies)

I also have another thought. I have discovered that iodine is required by every cell in our body, including the skin. I will wager that a person who is iodine sufficient will be immune to Scabies. Iodine that is supposed to be in our skin cells and I think it will kill scabies.
