The only way I got rid of scabies was by heat of 122 degrees or over for 45 minutes in an infrared sauna. I went through many rounds of using ivermectin and washing everything (sheets, towels, etc) in hot water. Nothing worked since my immune system is impaired. We bought a sauna because we could not take the intense itching anymore after 3 months of suffering.$6000 was never as well spent!!! I think you can get a cheaper one, but it must heat your skin to at least 122 degrees. We set ours to 138 and stayed in for 45 minutes. I understand that the scabies die at 25 minutes. Please don't suffer and waste time and money on the medications which only killed some of the bugs and didn't work long term for us. When my husband became scabies free, I continued to have them and no medication, neem oil baths or other home remedies worked for me.
