Is it scabies?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello everyone so I treated myself for scabies about 2 weeks for a second time and I washed everything. For the last few days my leg has been itchy and then last night one area in between my fingers for itchy and now I’m freaking out because I don’t want it to be scabies again. I can’t do it again. How do I know if it’s gone!? The pictures online look nothing like scabies in real life so it’s hard.

    A couple of months ago my son was diagnosed with scabbies. We treated the whole house plus ourselves with perm twice and a thrid time. I about lost my mind. After the harsh treatments, we still kept getting red areas that we thought were reinfestation. It was not! My son had a severe case of exzema and steroid ointment took care of it within 24hrs. I don't know if he ever really had it or not. Get the right tests before using all those harsh ointments and spending your life savings on home remedies. I spent a ton of money online buying things that I didn't know would work or not. Needless to say, we are scabbie free and I got a little piece of my mind back. I just did all the right protocols and if that's what it really was then it is gone. We did see some new red spots pop up weeks after successful treatment. So yes you will see new spots. Stay off these forums cause you will lose your mind like I did.

    I have had scabies nine months now! Tried everything on internet. Go to “lymephotos” or salt and vitamin c to cure scabies. After 2cnd treatment the scabies came out of my skin as scratch marks everywhere. You take it 4 x a day with lots of water. So cheap too just table salt and Walmart vitamin c 500 mg. It’s working. Please try it. If you can get salt tablets great. I emptied my fish oil capsules is about tsp 5 caps. I couldn’t stand drinking the salt. Just watch your blood pressure. If you drink a lot of water you won’t spike your pressure. I have high pressure and so far it’s fine.  Let me know tell everyone!!!!!
