I've used Nem, Tea Tree, Eucolypsis Oils, Tea Oil, Nix and Kwella (stronger than Nix) Lice shampoos. I've used Flea, raid, bed bug sprays and bed bug dust, Sure Killer Bug Buster dust, and, (people swear by sea shell flour also known as) "earth". In my hair, on my back...did it all. I would recommend Raid ant killer (red bottle) put it all over your body. It is gooy and it dries to your pj's so that it rips off like a wax for night time. It still didn't stop them and EVERYTHING is in plastic even the shoes which we wash before leaving the apartment. Day 14, I experimented with toothpaste. Menthe/wintergreen was soothing. Cinnamen blast was more irritating. I've not sure if it worked in some way except the whitener seemed to cap the sores which may have been helpful. Did the salt & clorine in the water for 2 hours and half an hour later some BLACK coffee ground mites popped up for a breathe of air. Used olive oil all over my body and used wet kleenex to wipe down and mites that I did not see were swepted up which meant they had hatches, therefore, they could hold their breathe for at least over two hours. And, they might have friends lodging with them like spiders, lice, scabies and bedbugs...rite? They did not all look the same but they are so small as to identify without a microscope. Day 15: Last night I rubbed down with a cup of olive oil and about an 3 tablespoons, or so, of Turpentine. The effect was most surprising, hundreds of mites popped up and they just had to wait cause I kept working in the oil in a circular motion and wiping...what...a thousand mites? It was incredible. I had only been seeing a dozen or so a day but underneath? It took me two to three hours of massaging until there were no more coming forth. Then, I took the salt/clorine bath and headed for the bedroom. But wait!?! I was freezing so much so that I thought that the furnace had broken down to lowering the temp to about 56 degrees. I checked two thermostates and they both read the same...80 degrees. Then, I realized it must have been the menth/wintergreen. What a chill! Great for menopause perhaps. I had to bundle up. Day 17, today, March 03,2013, I applied olive oil & turpentine and had only about 24 mites. I worked it for an hour and that was it. Did the menth/wintergreen toothpaste have anything to do with the larger catch? Is it possible that the menth dulled them to take some fight out of the rub? I don't know. I'm going to have to repeat it all over again. I should add that I did rub myself down with plaster of paris after the big catch. Extreme itching (could be due to hives or insects trying to bite out and maybe not) fifteen minutes later...I tried to wait it out with a movie and couldn't do so. My skin is improving maybe because of the salt/clorine/baking soda bath which I take about four times a day. I still plan on going to the doc for a script but want to time it with the pesticide company. I mean maybe bedbugs linger cause they have friends hiding them in the body of the victim, under a hatch, who is told to "go for a four hour walk" while the Pesticide company does it spray...rite? A bedbug is larger, eventually, than a scabie, thus the original scabie cave may end up deeper and longer...rite?
