- what to do for "Scavies or scabies" (how ever you spell it)?
- Q: My mom might have scavies, what is the best thing you can do for the itchynes
- A: I have researched this with tenacious diligence and conducted my own course of experiments. I have an answer which definately works, and quickly. I recommend that you explore this deeply on your own as well. The "medical community's" answer to this is usually premethrin, and insectide which is mildly toxic and usually fails anyway. The bugs quickly develope resistance and and as mere days go by, the offspring are more resistant that the original bugs. Plus, if you caught this from someone who was using premethrin, you STARTED off with a resistant strain of bugs. Try this, and end your suffering most quickly and thoroughly, please. It is a non-toxic and effective cure. I started off with the typical, doctor prescribed premethrin. I guess he had never had scabies, personally. I thought things were going very well at first. There was notable relief. But the little buggers were soon at full fury again, even with my extreme protocol of washing all worn clothing and bed linens DAILY and putting in HOT dryer for 30min-40min. I noticed that I needed MORE and MORE premethrin to get any results. And still they did not die. ON....to other things then.I'll cut to the chase here. Follow these instructions to the letter and you will be free. There are TWO aspects to curing yourself. Killing the bugs on your body, and also in the environment surrounding you that they are now IN. Each, equally important. You must work very hard at this...do not be optimistic or lazy. Diligence is essential and the only way through.Buy a 4oz bottle of pure, Neem-seed oil that is cold-pressed.(about $8) The leaf and bark oils are less potent. Neem should not be ingested, especially the seed-oil, without the guidance of a very experienced practioner who has used it in this fashion. Neem is NON-TOXIC, applied topically. Buy the same amount of pure Tea-tree oil. Also, non-toxic. Both, overall, very good for all skin disorders, but it kills the mites and eggs, each attacking from a seperate biological function. Buy an empty plastic bottle with squirt-type cap...4oz is good. Use a "carrier-oil", either olive oil, coconut oil, emu oil, or a combination of the three...as a base to mix in the active neem and tea-tree in. Neem has a wretched smell and your end product should NOT smell pleasant. In the 4oz empty bottle, fill about 3/4 with "carriers" oil(s). the remainder, filled with the Neem-seed oil and tea-tree oil....a bit more of the tea-tree than the neem. This is the goo that you smear over your ENTIRE body...every nook and cranny, but not mucous-membranes or eyes or deep in ears. These bugs supposedly do not affect the scalp, but my experience is different than what others say. Rub it on your scalp as well, just to be sure. ONE BUG can start the whole thing over again. Bath first and scrub well, if your skin can take it. Spray the bathtub with diliuted clorox solution afterwards, as well as bath floor....get rid of any mats in there. Let the clorox sit awhile and wipe up residue with paper towels and discard carefully in sealed zip-locks. Before going back to the quarentine of your room, put plastic bags on your feet and socks over that. If your room is carpeted, that is not good...but vacuum the carpet, and spray with either a very diluted clorox solution (about 15water to one clorox)...or you can use a slightly more potent white distilled vinegar spray. Same goes for any upholstered chairs you use. Dedicate ONE chair to the sacrifice. do not sit and stroll all over the place.Limit the possibilities of where these very tiny bugs are hiding from you, waiting for you to step on them or brush against them and re-infest you. Put a plastic dropcloth over entire mattress and tuck in very well. Your sheets will go over that. The bugs can walk ten-abreast holding hands, through the strands of your sheets and into your mattress. They are that tiny. Each day, after changing your sheets and carefully putting those, along with pillowcases and any clothes that you've worn into a sealed plastic garbage bag....escorting them to the laundry...using HOT water...but most importantly frying their brains out in the dryer for at least 30 mins...KILL them....and even toss those garbage bags away in a sealed bag. Do not re-use. Get the picture?OK...back to your room. Wipe down smooth surfaces with isopropal alchohol full strength and let sit. It will air-dry quickly. Everything that you touch, you can consider to be a haven of bugness. Wipe with alchohol. don't forget your computer keyboard, which you can lightly spray with vinegar mix. Or vacuum.Now it's time to treat your body. Best done about 1-2hours before you lay down to sleep. This oil will remain very gooey and not absorb quickly, so sit somewhere until ready to lay down and regrease your butt which your clothing has absorbed the oils from. I dedicated ONE set of pajamas to the sacrificial sleepmode, which became very stinky and saturated, of course. No bug would go near them. But even those, I washed every three days. Sitting in your favorite chair, beging with the soles of your feet and generously saturate everything to the knee. One leg, then the other, interrupted by placing plastic bag on your foot and sliding a sock over that. Now, stand up. Going upward, smear the oil everywhre, generously. If you have very thick hair, better to add four drops of Neem-oil to your palm with the shampoo in it and lather in, while showering. That way, you can just work the OIL up beyond your hairline abit, at nite. Put on your sacrificial pj's and slip into bed. This is usually when it's the worst...at nite...they ravage you....but with the goo on your body....you will notice a rapid decline in the "creepy-crawlees" and the biting. First nite....a few bites. Second nite...very few or NONE. Third nite....sleep deeply and the enjoy the horrible smell. After all sensations of "creepy_crawlees" and bites are entirely ended, continue this treatment for three more days. Thereafter, every three nites. If you are as crazy as me about getting rid of them, do the treatment twice a day and watch tv. You will be homefree before you know it.Another VERY important thing....If you share a household, EVERYONE there must do this simoltaneously. You must be the protocol police...no laziness and variance from protocol, allowed. This can go on for many MONTHS or YEARS, otherwise. These things are EXTREMELY difficult to eradicate. Be wise and do it, ONE time, the right way. Wash bedding and clothing, everyday, or seal away in a garbage bag for ten days to kill them. Washclothes, towels, handtowels, the same.God bless you and best of luck....my heart goes out to you, truely. But DO this, and be out of suffering, once and for all. Oh yes....after all symptoms gone...continue on the once-every-three-day regimen for two weeks....just to be SURE. And another thing...spray your plastic bedwrap after removing sheets, with the clorox stuff....wait a half-hr and wipe with paper towels, dry. discard paper towels in sealed zip-locks. That does it.

- Q: i came home from the pool last week and had bumps on the back of my leg and now it itches all over my legs. i dont know if its relevent to the pool, but i do have a pet rat, maybe haviing some relation to it???? thanks
- A: The name is 'scabies' and you should consult with a doctor at once. They are highly contagious and can be very difficult to get rid of.If you do have scabies, they will eventually spread across most of your body, with the exception of your head and face. They tend to itch a little during the day but at night it is unbearable. That is when they are laying eggs, and multiplying. Gross huh? Your doctor will prescribe a nasty solution called Quellada (http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/medicines/100003783.html). This is to be rubbed all over your body following a shower. All towels and linens must be washed every day until the scabies completely disappear. Stay away from everyone until they are gone.
