Do natural remedies for scabies really work?
I have Scabies still after 3 treatements of premethrin 5%. I read on the internet where it is really hard to get rid of Scabies and that the prescription meds usually do not work. Would it be a waste of time and money to try one of the natural remedies I see advertised. Also, what can I spray on my mattress and furniture that will kill the Scabies? Please help, Im going bananas over this!
Answer: the medication should have worked if you did it properly. go back to your doctor and tell them it isn't working.

Is it possible to have scabies and body lice at the same time?
I have lesions on my ears, face, around my lips, eyelids, eyebrows, and in my hair. Generally Scabies rarely goes above the neck. From what I have read, pubic lice and body lice are part of my malady. I am seeking some advice. At night, hell breaks loose on my body despite using Permetrin (Acticin 5% cream) which is specific for Scabies Does the Permetrin also kill pubic and body lice?
Answer: Yes, it is possible to have both. Permetrin should get rid of lice & Scabies, however...you may still have a problem with itching for up to three weeks after you are NO longer infested. Make sure your clothes and bedding are clean so that you do not reinfest yourself. Make sure the person you were having close contact with has also been treated. I would wonder where that person contacted their pubic/body lice. There are several anti-itch creams you can buy OTC. Using them might help you at night especially when you are trying to sleep. I would say one of two things is happening....you are possibly no longer infected, but are still itching (may go on for 2-3 weeks), or you are reinfesting cause you are not using clean bedding every night/clean clothes every day...or your partner is still infected.

I am a total clean-freak... I drive my husband nuts about how much I clean. Well, to make a long story short, we just literally started our two preschoolers (ages 3 and 4) in daycare. Two weeks into it, our daughter comes home with small itchy red bumps on her "booty" and as days went by, it became much worse and even spread up her back and down her legs. We then took her in to see a doctor and he said that he thinks it may be Scabies!!!!!!
When the doctor explained what this was, I freaked!!!!! Our son, who attends the same daycare is fine and even sleeps right next to our daughter.
The doctor gave us some cream to put on her and said that the cream should kill the Scabies.
My question is, how did she get this (daycare doesnt know) and why hasnt our son gotten this who sleeps right next to her and attends the same daycare??
Its been 2 weeks now and she is still itching a bloody bottom. Can this really be Scabies???
Also, can you actually SEE Scabies if you look closely (like lice?)
Thanks for any help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Answer: Scabies are not visible to the naked eye, though sometimes you can see the burrow track (which is very thin like a hair). Scabies is often misdiagnosed and it can be heat rash or eczema as they look similar. It does seem likely that your son could catch it in this setting but it also may take 2-6 weeks for symptoms to show. It sounds like the daycare is not reporting any other cases (though they may be afraid of losing customers). Also the rash can still continue for a few weeks after treatment so it isn't always easy to tell if it is just the residual effects, a different rash or a possible reinfestation. Meditator

How easy is it to get Scabies without having sex??
Answer: You can absolutely get Scabies without sex. If your towels, clothing or bedsheets are in close contact, it can be passed. Scabies is amazingly contagious! If your room mate has them and is getting treated, YOU SHOULD TOO! Otherwise, you likely will get them and just pass them back to him. Unfortunately, you won't know for about 2-4 weeks after you get them that you have them, since the itching doesn't start until the first eggs hatch. Treat yourself! Scabies suck!

Is Scabies dangerous?
Answer: Scabies is an infestation of the skin with the microscopic mite Sarcoptes scabei. Infestation is common, found worldwide, and affects people of all races and social classes. Scabies spreads rapidly under crowded conditions where there is frequent skin-to-skin contact between people, such as in hospitals, institutions, child-care facilities, and nursing homes. * Pimple-like irritations, burrows or rash of the skin, especially the webbing between the fingers; the skin folds on the wrist, elbow, or knee; the penis, the breast, or shoulder blades. * Intense itching, especially at night and over most of the body. * Sores on the body caused by scratching. These sores can sometimes become infected with bacteria.

What is Scabies? Scabies is an infestation of the skin with the microscopic mite Sarcoptes scabei. Infestation is common, found worldwide, and affects people of all races and social classes. Scabies spreads rapidly under crowded conditions where there is frequent skin-to-skin contact between people, such as in hospitals, institutions, child-care facilities, and nursing homes. What are the signs and symptoms of Scabies infestation? * Pimple-like irritations, burrows or rash of the skin, especially the webbing between the fingers; the skin folds on the wrist, elbow, or knee; the penis, the breast, or shoulder blades. * Intense itching, especially at night and over most of the body. * Sores on the body caused by scratching. These sores can sometimes become infected with bacteria. How did I get Scabies? By direct, prolonged, skin-to-skin contact with a person already infested with Scabies. Contact generally must be prolonged (a quick handshake or hug will usually not spread infestation). Infestation is easily spread to sexual partners and household members. Infestation may also occur by sharing clothing, towels, and bedding. Who is at risk for severe infestation? People with weakened immune systems and the elderly are at risk for a more severe form of Scabies, called Norwegian or crusted Scabies. Scabies is spread more easily by persons who have Norwegian, or crusted, Scabies than by persons with other types of Scabies. How long will mites live? Once away from the human body, mites usually do not survive more than 48-72 hours. When living on a person, an adult female mite can live up to a month. Did my pet spread Scabies to me? No. Pets become infested with a different kind of Scabies mite. If your pet is infested with Scabies, (also called mange) and they have close contact with you, the mite can get under your skin and cause itching and skin irritation. However, the mite dies in a couple of days and does not reproduce. The mites may cause you to itch for several days, but you do not need to be treated with special medication to kill the mites. Until your pet is successfully treated, mites can continue to burrow into your skin and cause you to have symptoms. How soon after infestation will symptoms begin? For a person who has never been infested with Scabies, symptoms may take 4-6 weeks to begin. For a person who has had Scabies before, symptoms appear within several days. How is Scabies infestation diagnosed? Diagnosis is most commonly made by looking at the burrows or rash. A skin scraping may be taken to look for mites, eggs, or mite fecal matter (scybala) to confirm the diagnosis. Even if a skin scraping or biopsy is taken and returns negative, it is still possible that you may be infested. Typically, there are fewer than 10 mites on the entire body of an infested person; this makes it easy for an infestation to be missed. However, persons with Norwegian, or crusted, Scabies can be infested with thousands of mites and should be considered highly infectious. Can Scabies be treated? Yes. Several creams or lotions that are available by prescription are FDA-approved to treat Scabies. Always follow the directions provided by your physician or the directions on the package label or insert. Apply the medication to a clean body from the neck down to the toes. After leaving the medication on the body for the recommended time, take a bath or shower to wash off the cream or lotion. Put on clean clothes. All clothes, bedding, and towels used by the infested person during the 3 days before treatment should be washed in hot water and dried in a hot dryer. A second treatment of the body with the same cream or

Is scabies contagious from a dog to a human?
I just got a puppy, she is about 8 weeks old. I think she has Scabies, one of the dogs in the liter had it. She has an appointment tomorrow at the animal clinic, and I was just wondering if I can get Scabies from her.
Answer: Yes, it is extreamly contagous. although when people get Sarcoptes (Scabies) from animals, the disease is generally self-limiting, causing only temporary itching.

This human race of mange mite causes a rash on the wrists, elbows, or between the fingers. the best way to prevent getting Scabies is: after handling your dog wipe your hands off with benzoyl peroxide this will kill the mite. keep you pet away from other pets also they can cmontact this mite also.
