got the DE and am mixing it w/ a little lavender oil, neem oil, couple drops of tea tree oil and a little coconut oil,
according to your recipe but I add water to get it thru the spray bottle.
did you use water?
DE/oil mixture has been the first step of relief from nightmare itching and burning on my arms, chest and stomach.
IT'S A NIGHTMARE.
also taking dead Sea Salt mineral hot baths to externally kill the mites and then
drinking a glass of Alkaline Water and 1/4 tsp Sea Salt w. 4000mg vit C to internally go after any bugs and having good results from that as well.
dabbing any sudden bites w/ an alcohol swab (helps)
changing sheets every day
sprinkling DE on mattress
then new sheets
then spraying DE mixture on sheets.
coconut oil on scalp which helps.
mopping tile floors with alcohol
saving up for a steam cleaner at which point I will bag everything I can and steam clean the entire apt.
any advice for someone who can't take it after 5 weeks of itching and burning?
is there something I'm leaving out?
my DR prescribed peremethrin (I have a truly great Doc) but it only helped for a couple days and then they were back with a vengeance.
I think I have the new 'gulf war revenge' scabies that I've read about. this is really from hell.
really improved once I tried your protocol -right away 60 %
I just can't take the itching and burn anylonger (and occasioinal crawling feeling -yuck!!!)
my teen only has them around his ankles
raised him organically - no vac etc - he's healthy as an ox unlike his mom so he thinks I'm exaggerating the pain and itching.
although he saw the huge 'bites' and welts on my forearms which are better but still itching like crazy and painful (eggs?)
lanacaine is the best of 20 creams I've bought for topical pain. but just @ 30%relief.
have also applied straight need oil. tamanu oil very helpful.
feel sooooooooooo alone with this. and have been isolating myself so as not to pass it on to even strangers.
tell me there's a light at the end of this tunnel :)
