I have NO infective areas no rash no new meds just itching all over
No new foods nothing has change in my daily living.
I personally feel like it's mites. What do I do?
Hello, Mr Souther, to treat mite bites on the skin, or scabies, you can get some prescribed creams such as permethrin cream, benzyl benzoate lotion, sulfur ointment or crotamiton cream. More serious cases may require ivermectin as well as antihistamines, antibiotics or steroids.
Actually, I have got a mite infestation previously. I got rid of in following ways.
Firstly get Permethrin 5% cream and apply the cream at night from your neck to the bottom of your soles, being careful to ensure the cream gets into every single crease, under your nails — everywhere, because mites like to hide. Leave it on for 8-12 hours and wash off in the morning. Repeat the treatment 4 days later, and then 4 days later again. This is because the cream kills the mites but not the eggs which will hatch otherwise. Do this treatment a minimum of 3 times (they say twice is enough, but experience has taught me otherwise!).
Then wash all bed linen and clothes you’ve worn within 3 days of the outbreak in boiled water.
Remember that anything that cannot be washed or dry cleaned should be sealed in bin bags for 2 weeks (this includes shoes). People say 3 days is enough, but I wanted to be sure!
Wash all hard floors in diluted bleach every 3 days.
I believe you can get rid of mites by doing these things.

My husband and I spent the night at a hotel. Two days later, I kept finding little marks like a pimple and they are very itchy. I have them on my arms and on my legs also. Not sure if they are mites. I do know they are not bed bugs. How can I find out?
Hey, recently, my families are suffered from itching rash all over the body, I think they’re bites from mites, can you give me some advices on how to get rid of it at home?
Hello, when you have a mite infestation, you got rash and itchy skin. Following ways may be helpful.
You can use a number of facial washes and creams which are very gentle on your skin while acting as a mite suppressor.
Vacuum as often as possible. Mites usually live inside fabrics, where they also eat, nest and burrow to lay their eggs. This means you will find them in carpets, clothes, drapes, curtains and furniture. Vacuuming all these as many times as possible shows you how to get rid of dust mites and their eggs.
Use bed covers to get rid of mites on humans by washing them once a week.
Dusting stationery objects often around the house with a simple wet cloth.
Mites enjoy humidity and warm places so keep the humidity inside the house at very low levels.
What you can also do is purchasing a small colony of predator mites, which will kill off the pests.
You can also spread some insecticide to do the trick.
where do you get the predator mites or was that a joke
I also thought it a joke, it turns out not. Predatory mites are available online, you can buy them from some websites and they even ship free. But I would rather choose insecticide.
Produced commercially for years, Predatory Mites (Phytoseiulus persimilis) are an effective biological control for use against the two spotted spider mite. These natural enemies do not bite people, feed on other insects or injure plants. Once released, they will immediately begin searching for food on the underside of leaves. Control of a light infestation should occur in two to three weeks. On heavier infestations a second release may be required.

On severely infested plants (webbing and feeding marks will be noticed) it is important that you reduce the pest infestation prior to releasing predators. Consider spraying with an insecticidal soap or other non-residual insect control. If only a few plants are infested, consider removing them.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
P. persimilis are shipped in corn cob grit or vermiculite to give them some bulk. Extra predators are sent to compensate for mortality during shipment. To release, gently tumble the container to mix the contents and shake the predators out close to mite infestations. The following release rates have been established:

• 1-2 per infested leaf
• 20-30 per medium sized plant
• 2,000 per 700 square feet

Heavy infestations may require a second release. Instructions for care and release are provided with each order.

Guarantee
Planet Natural guarantees live, timely delivery of our beneficial insects. However, to ensure live delivery, it is important that you receive your order when it arrives. Once your order has shipped, a UPS tracking number will be sent to you via email announcing when your package will be delivered. We will NOT be responsible for “live shipments” left unattended at your doorstep. Please make contingent arrangements to have them picked up by a neighbor or delivered to a work address if you will not be home during the day.

Well, according to your symptoms, it should be mites’ bites. Because the most obvious signs of mites’ bites are itchy rashes or pimples. But if you want to confirm it you should go to your doctor.
Diagnosis of a mite infestation usually is made based upon the customary appearance and distribution of the rash and the presence of burrows.
You can find out it by identifying the mite or mite eggs or fecal matter (scybala). This can be done by carefully removing the mite from the end of its burrow using the tip of a needle or by obtaining a skin scraping to examine under a microscope for mites, eggs, or mite fecal matter (scybala). However, a person can still be infested even if mites, eggs, or fecal matter cannot be found.
Can scabies reaccur after treatment and are they still Alive in my body. It has been about 2 months since my treat
Hello Alberta, scabies is highly contagious, a person may be infested by scabies mites without showing any symptom, and people still can get them transmitted by skin-to-skin contact. So the treatment of scabies include treatment to all family members with possible skin contact, and disinfesting the bedding and clothing.
