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.

Day 24. Rash Itch started on right side forehead cheeks chin... Creams from doctor permethrin and steroid prednisone did not help. Spread to front stomach and entire back. Started treating linen and house as if this rash was contagious from day one. Found GrowYouthful site and started using borax and peroxide. Two days on this and my entire rash itch has stopped. Don't know where how it came from as I am not exposed to crowds, hotel, hospital. I have no pets etc. NO more chemical cream for me. BUT now I have relief cure? maybe? thank you.

I was in a hospital in early December. A few weeks later I started to notice a couple of dark spots on the front of my bikini region. I thought my Brazilian girl had just burned my skin with too hot of wax as it has happened before and I've gotten dark spots as a result. Then I noticed it start to spread in a spot above my wax line and a really dark spot on my hip. I have been using tea tree oil but it kept getting worse and spread to the other side of my hip. There were little lines coming in that looked like stretch marks. These very dark dry patches kept getting worse and looked like an eczema rash. When I researched online I found out that scabies breaks out on your stomach check, back check, sexual parts check, around the nipple check, back check, knees check... There was no denying I got scabies. But I didn't experience the crawling and itching which still left doubt in my mind that the tea tree was causing my rash or that it was another skin condition. I started the daily deep cleaning and laundry, sheets etc. I tried a lot more tea tree oil, but it still kept spreading and I started getting exhausted which makes sense because it really takes a toll on your system. I read up on all sorts of different bath recipes and was also covering my body in mineral oils and essential oils, then spraying myself with 1/2 diluted Apple Cider Vinegar and leaving it on for 15 minutes prior to bathing or showering, but still no luck. I was ready to surrender and give in to DR. and chemicals until I read this forum! OMG Borax has had me in the highest spirits today. This morning I saw my rash spreading so I went to do hours more research and found this. I rushed to the store and got 20 Mules Borax and hydrogen peroxide so I could try the 2 cups borax 1 Cup HP bath. I made the bath expecting flat results and was scared for my hair the whole time, especially because my dandruff has already been so bad since this started. Side note I only use apple cider vinegar for conditioner and it is incredible even whith my very thick long wavy hair! People say they see the bugs crawl out which confused me because they are microscopic, but it turns out it's true! I thought they were a tick size, but it turns out they are actually just the size of black pepper grounds. I wish I had known prior because I would have loved to see my bath water. After I got out I pulled out some castor oil and lavender and started rubbing every inch of my skin including every inch of fingers and toes. In this process, I kept getting confused on why there were specs of black on my skin when I was using a white towel. Then I looked close and realized they were literally coming out of my skin... this is what people had said the whole time! So many places on my body, specifically my hands had no signs or marks, but when I started to scrub them, I couldn't believe how many mites was coming out! It was so gross. Wash everything in Borax and hydrogen peroxide and make a spray with borax, hydrogen peroxide, water, and bleach for a great surface cleaner. I feel so lucky I found this solution!

I've had scabies for several months now, coming and going in waves, now my partner has it too but my kids are thankfully still symptom-free. I've tried everything, poison and natural, the borax helps but as I've been traveling in the USA and I haven't been able to keep up with it often enough as we were camping, only showers not baths. Have finally got home and bought up on peroxide and will get some borax again tomorrow. It's so much harder to find in Australia -Bunnings apparently. I was wondering if anyone found a permanent cure from the borax and peroxide? I'm talking one year scabies free at least? I'd really love to hear an affirmative and resounding YES!
