Scabies, anybody had this. I've had it for four months and the cresms don't work.

It is driving me mad. I feel that I can't go on anymore. Has anyone had this and been able to get rid of them.

I meant to say that the creams don't work.

I actually looked up "cresms"

Are you hirsute? Had the buggers many years ago, and had a hard time getting rid of them because the qwell cream wasn't getting to the skin on my hairier parts. Shaving/dipilatory cream to get rid of the hair first, then the qwell, worked.

You also have to wash the living fuck out of every fabric you might have touched in HOT water. Get anti-lice spray for mattresses/couches or anything else that doesn't fit in machines. Same for carpets.

Assume they are everywhere. Spray/wash everything. You skip one thing, and they will come back.

Good luck, and much sympathy.

After I got scabies noone would have sex with me, so my orcresms were limited.

I thought I did, bur they were actually fleas.

Once upon a time, I inadvertently gave them to my boyfriend, who then inadvertently gave them to his father via a shared towel in their bathroom. I really felt badly for the old man.

Yes! Nightmarish!

Coat your WHOLE BODY, even your head, although they say you don't have to. Sit on a sheet and don't touch anything you can't throw away- for 12 hours! Wash ALL of your clothes and outer garments in hot water. Have your bed steam cleaned and toss away hats, mittens, and gloves. You are somehow reinfecting yourself by wearing some garment that hadn't been washed. It took me a YEAR to get rid off!

Bathing daily and washing one's clothes does WONDERS.

You have to be seriously skanky to get scabies, or have slept with someone who is incapable of basic hygiene.

by Anonymousreply 1009/26/2013

Good luck OP it must be really getting you down. No, you're not skanky, just unfortunate.

Link below to the NHS guidance on treating the problem, best of luck.

This is not true. Scabies require skin to skin contact to transmit. Unlike crabs the eggs are not hearty and do not survive long off the skin.

You need to get the stronger cream. It's more toxic (hence, stronger) so some states don't prescribe it as commonly as the less toxic, less effective cream. I remember it as being yellow-ish and somewhat glittery. You need TWO courses of treatment. It goes on your body, everywhere beneath your neck, and stays there for 18 hours. Wash off. Repeat one week later.

[quote]You have to be seriously skanky to get scabies, or have slept with someone who is incapable of basic hygiene.

You can get scabies from someone else who has never had them before and is showing no symptoms. It takes up to two weeks for the body to develop a reaction to them, and during that time you are completely contagious and will pass them to anyone you have genital contact with.

Steam cleaning everything is an overreaction. Just dry clean everything you've worn recently and give your sheets and towels the hot water treatment. They aren't crabs, they aren't bed bugs. Most infections require two treatments because the medication won't touch the youngest eggs that are deepest under the skin. Those need to hatch.

Good luck. I had them once but had to do 2 treatments to get rid of them. They suck but aren't a big deal.

Hmmm... I wonder what the treatment is for people who eat only all-natural, organic foods prepared by their own hands?

"I only ingest real things from the earth that are untouched byt herbicides. pesticides or chemically-laden fertilizers! No GMOs, no unnatural food additives. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go stew myself in insecticide for the rest of the day. I say goodnight to you!"

OP has been fucking homeless guys again.

by Anonymousreply 1509/26/2013

I know you can get scabies from having close contact with someone who has it. But how do you get scabies in the first place? Aren't they caused by lice? Isn't scabies caused by living in filth? I can't believe people still get this disease. Doesn't just keeping clean prevent it?

Some very promiscuous guy I knew said he got scabies from a car seat. Hah!

by Anonymousreply 1609/26/2013

Have you gone to the Doctor OP?

by Anonymousreply 1709/26/2013

Lice are parasites that live on your hair follicles and plant eggs on them.

Scabies are parasites that burrow under your skin, and live and reproduce there.

They are different things altogether.

Each comes in varieties that prefer the pubic area, and not. (The lice / scabies your kids get in the sandbox are not the same you get off Grindr. Related, but slightly different.)

Okay, maybe YOU are not skanky but you are skank adjacent.

It is really a profoundly dirty person who gets and spreads scabies, for the most part.

by Anonymousreply 1909/26/2013

I did get scabies after hooking up with a guy I met on Manhunt who had porn playing the whole time, and some unidentified white powder cut into rails on his bedside table, and had the blinds drawn, and in the 10+ years since, I've hooked up a lot but have never had it again. So yea, I concede that my brush with scabies came from hooking up with a real whore.

Hi G/R/Umpy!

So nasty. I would never admit this to anyone.

by Anonymousreply 2209/26/2013

This works but your doctor will probably not prescribe it. It is available as a horse wormer though but requires a vet Rx. It is also a human worm treatment.

Oral ivermectin is an effective and cost-comparable alternative to topical agents in the treatment of scabies infection. It may be particularly useful in the treatment of severely crusted scabies lesions in immunocompromised patients or when topical therapy has failed.

That's it. I'm never dating again! We might as well just wrap ourselves in plastic. You can't kiss someone. The might get the herp. You can't fuck without those slimy 'erection stranglers.' I give up.

r25, there is something to be said for monogamy.

What do you mean by a "date"?

by Anonymousreply 2609/26/2013

OP, you tried permethrin cream? I have prescribed it to patients with scabies with good results. Sometime it requires two treatment. Also putting your clothes in plastic bags for a few days and washing linens thoroughly.

Report that bastard that gave you this to your local health clinic. So others don't suffer the same embarrassment you are experiencing right now. Health clinic will show up to a persons job or house if they know that person's info.
