Here is how I cured myself

Posted , 2 users are following.

Ok so. i recently got in contact with scabies a few weeks ago. i started to get these little bites on my fingers, but i thought they were just spider bites. i all of a sudden became WAY too itchy especially at night. it came to a point where i wanted to scratch myself till i bleed. i neglected this for 2 weeks until i went to the doctors and got diagnosed with scabies.

i was prescribed perethrim cream and i took it 2 times 5 days apart. i have not seen any new bites since and my itch has gone to a minimal due to the aide effects of the cream. I KNOW how mentally this can mess you up, so i want to share what i did so you can get cured.

  1. since they were on you, you need to wash everything in hot water EVERYDAY. if this is too much, i nuked my clothes and sheets everyday in the dryer on high heat for 30 min.

  2. rotate with a few pairs of clothes. nuke them in the dryer after wearing them and switch to a new set. repeat this during the whole treatment.

  3. go to wal mart and buy an air mattress and camp outside your bedroom for a few days. they can only last for 3 days max without a host. dont even step in your room. sleep on the air mattress or sleeping bag for a few days.

  4. VACCUM. i vaccummed everyday as well as dry my clothes and sheets on high.

  5. i put my shoes in the freezer before bed to kill any existing mites i might have.

  6. take 2 treatments of permethrin 5-7 day intervals.

  7. this cream is like HIROSHIMA on your skin. it WILL make you itch, it WILL cause rashes and new bumps. THESE ARE NOT BITES. let the cream work.

  8. THE Post scabies itch is real. your body is fighting off not only the dead mites, but the cream itself too. its been 2 weeks and i still get itching hours.

  9. stop googling scabies. all i did was google and view horror stories thinking i was never gonna be cured.

    how did you know for sure it was gone? I used the permethrin cream last Tuesday (10/15/18) and my doctor said i couldnt do it again for 14 days. I've still been itching and freaking out about it. About 2 days ago, I developed very dry hands and feet (to the point where lotion wont even help) and I'm worried that they might still be there or is this normal? I can't find anything online about the after effects of scabies so I'm not sure if anyone else experienced this.
