Oh my god! I am so happy right now. it works! it seriously works! I have been fighting these mites for 4 months now, thought I was doing good after the 4th time using permethrin but they came back. I went crazy on everything, washed all clothes after every use, double dryed them, steam cleaned everything that wouldn't melt, even put stuff away not to be touched and still hasn't been touched in 4 months. But they came back. This time I got them and saw results in one day, after one borax bath, besides that, I put borax in coconut oil and applied it directly to my skin rubbing it in and pretty much scraping it all over the infected areas, opening all bubbles, its messy and annoying but is totally worth it! Please if you are suffering from scabies this is the best remedy to kill them! So far after one borax bath my skin is not itchy, a little prickly but healing, and you will feel the difference and you will know throughout the next day that you are winning the battle! I wish I had seen this earlier I would still have my job and I would have saved over $500! My skin is healing, I'm feeling normal, and more comfortable every day! Whoever figured this out, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!

I've been battling what I thought was scabies since January. The borax and peroxide baths gave me tremendous relief from itching. I had massive die off periods and black specks. However, I've seen other comments about how you shouldn't be able to see them. I decided to send a bunch of samples off to a University lab. What astonished me was it came back critter free. These specks were confirmed to be fibers and bits of synthetic materials. The question is why is this coming out of my skin? That's when I started researching and learned about Morgellons. It makes me wonder how many people don't have scabies, but this other condition that can seem identical. Wishing you all relief and hope. This whole ordeal has changed my life upside down and interfered with work. Thanks for all the encouragement and positive posts.

Right, but: after drying off after my now 3rd hp/borax bath, I rubbed Vitamin E oil all over and felt with my fingertips "morsels" - wiping with a regular cotton men's hanker chief, lots of black specs on it: dead bugs ! Yay :) .... so this bathing with hp/borax is working for me, praise the Lord - I will continue bathing for a week or better until the hanker chief after the bath stays white and every last one of these bugs are dead and gone ! Blessings and Thanks AGAIN to all who posted this remedy, I feel so much better ..... thank you !

In my experience, if you can see something in a jar, it is not the microscopic demodex mite.

I see that I have lots of Hydrogen Peroxide company here. I've had scabies since July 2014, but it really broke out in October 2014. I used assorted home remedies but scabies came back each time. I read somewhere about HP, been using it diluted with some water, dabbing the sores with cotton balls, works pretty good, it stops the itch and I see little black specs on the cotton balls - so I am thinking these blankin bugs are dying - I do not itch at all, but the sores wont heal :( Have used permethrin, but permethrin ONLY works if kept on for 12-14 hours as per the medic in my neighborhood medical facility ... ordered more permethrin on ebay without necessity of prescription in FL, one tube of permethrin with prescription costs $75 .. its pathetic what medication costs in the US .... I am going to get some Borax and do the borax/hp bath many of you report good success with ... I have been healthy as a horse all my life and am at wits end with this infestation but am determined to win this fight come hell or high water.

i filled bath tub 2 cups borax from walmart, 1 cup h2o2, 1 lb epson salts from dollar store, 2 drops tea tree oil and baking soda half box. Stay as long as you want in tub, in tub use soft scrub brush to rough up bumps then shower off and scrub with sulfur soap from gnc or sprouts store. After 3 days I had total relief. Make sure u wash sheets towels all u r clothes that u use.

Yesss!!! This worked wonders, 20 min in hot bath 2 cups borax 1 cup hydrogen peroxide, refilled bath tub (had drained itself to about half full during 20 min soak) with hot water again till full, 2 more cups borax 1 cup peroxide, use hand while in water to stir and wallah, got out feeling almost no itch and redness almost gone. Going to do it again everyday for 5 days, also wash ALL sheets. Thank you to whom ever told us all about this.

I followed the instructions for the peroxide and borax remedy and finally got some relief, after three treatments of premethrin and trips to the Dr and er. Expensive treatments I might add, as well as toxic. For the first time in months I have some relief, I wish I would have known earlier. Thanks!!

Two cups borax and one cup hydrogen peroxide in a hot bath twice a day is working for me. I am on the mend. Thank God and Thank All of You.

What killed my scabies...1/2 cup mineral oil and/or 1/2 cup castor oil, 1 cup borax laundry soap, ess.clove oil, ess.tea tree oil 1/4 to 1/2 tsp (adjust to your sensitivity,*oils can burn your skin if too strong*) baths. I would soak in hottest water possible with above ingredients 1/2 hr to 1 hour, longer the better. After bath pre-mix equal amounts mineral, castor, grapeseed oils, and 1/4 tsp clove, tea tree & lemongrass essential oil. Adjust as needed. Cover your body with this mixture. If you are as desperate as I was, cut a hole in a large trash bag to sleep in & wrap exposed areas(arms,legs) in saran wrap and wear latex gloves with above mixture to bed. You are doing 3 things with this, keeping oils on your skin, smothering mites, and saving sheet from a oily mess. During your day routine to dress and keep some of oil on your skin mix equal parts gold bonds medicated powder and FOOD GRADE ONLY Diatomaceous Earth, powder your body down before dressing. TRY NOT TO SCRATCH. You want to boost your immune system as much as possible because the longer you have them the stronger they get and the weaker your immune system gets. Only buy 100% essential oils anything else your wasting your money and time. Only FOOD GRADE Diatomaceous Earth..and only cold pressed, hexane/free CASTOR oil. All of the items can be used for other ailments not just scabies infection. One more recommendation IF you have access to a sauna it will kill all cycles of scabies, just don't forget to treat your environment other wise you will just be re-infected. * you can treat animal's with all oil !*diluted*! EXCEPT NO TEA TREE again NO TEA TREE on pets. TEA TREE IS VERY HARMFUL TO ANIMAL'S AND COULD CAUSE DEATH.
