I was diagnosed with scabies a couple months ago. I have done the cream treatment 3 times, each time a week apart. Because of new bites my dermatologist prescribed stromectol 4 (3mg) plus the cream. My house is under siege and have used all measures from scrubbing everything daily, washing clothes then bagging for 2 weeks then putting clothes in the oven at 225 degrees for 30 minutes just to make sure. Vacuuming everything. I think I found some new bites. What the heck do I do now? This is costing me a fortune and I am on unemployment now and can't afford these extreme measures. The electric bill will be through the roof because of all the washing a excess drying to kill these little buggers. HELP!
I went through the same thing and after 3 months of suffering from this i finally found a cure!!! First of all stop spending money on all of this medication that is OBVIOUSLY not working. Take sea salt baths with very hot water for four days straight. The hottest that your body can handle. Do this every NIGHT for four nights straight with 2 lbs of of sea salt for an hour each night. Another thing you can do to save time and money is putting all of your dirty clothes/ sheets etc in a separate bedroom for 3 days straight. scabies mites cannot live without its hosts for more than 3 days.
The sea salt baths will kill the scabies on contact but you have to do it for atleast 4 days to make sure you get rid of all of them!! make sure to scrub your skin very well to expose the mites!!!
Let me know if this helps.
