I have a unique expertise in this area unfortunate for me.
First of all I am a recluse, I have no contact with people, and even going grocery shopping I use the self checkout. Of all the information on the internet, it seems no one including the so called professionals or experts know what I have discovered the hard way. Where these little bastards come from.
I live in Oklahoma, I hate it here, it is humid rains spring and fall and is too hot and humid in the summer to even want to go outside and the winters you can even sweat while working outside when it is in the 50s. Note when you die, if you go to hell, it is Oklahoma.
I believe the climate here creates this perfect condition for scabies. This is what I know as a fact, Scabies live in or originate in areas where there is moisture and decaying grass or trees. They are in the termite or spider family, now to where I got them at least 7 times now with no human contact.
I have a wooded area in the back of my property, it is infested with them, they are in dead trees and tall grass and weeds. Every time I tried to clear it off or cut the tall weeds I got scabies starting on my exposed left arm for some reason almost every time, maybe due to mowing on a tractor in left hand circles where sometimes a tall weed might hit my left arm.
I had previously got them in the winter trying moving dead branches to burn and thought they were only in the wood, but so far 2 different times I have got them in the summer mowing while trying to have no contact with the area of my property where the dead wood was. I use to live in Arizona, I had some landscaping done on a mountain I lived on, the landscapers used tubes of straw bailed in orange plastic to prevent erosion of the loose soil when it rained before they finished. I worked in the yard sometimes sitting on the ground near or on them, even though it was Arizona and dry where i lived, the straw came from the low lands where sometimes the monsoon rains soaked the low lands and the straw, I got scabies the first time from the straw, I got it in my crotch, knew it was not from sex because I did not have any sex or any skin contact with anyone, it was horrible, a rash and itch that would not go away with everything I tried, salt baths ,iodine, sulpher soaps scouring pads, alcohol, and peroxide till I was raw, still every night I had intense itching as they were active at night breeding and defecating under my skin in that more moist part of my body in folds of skin where they prefer.
They bore tunnels you can see as red lines under your skin, with the internet it was easy to diagnose, the first time they were localized in my crotch, after trying many things I found Tee Tree Oil kills them but it is caustic and will give you what looks like 3rd degree burns if you soak it in something and keep it in contact with your skin which is what you have to do for it to kill them. You are so tormented and miserable it is either kill yourself or burn yourself so I chose to burn.
I soaked paper towels with Tee tree oil put them all around my crotch put under ware to hold it in place, then finally went to sleep with it burning me, but the burning felt good compared to the nasty creatures moving and breeding under my skin with the itching, I could feel them stop moving after that night. They were finally all dead, I could feel no more movement at night , just the itching from the infection and the healing process that took months to heal, gradually you can tell the torment is lifting.. After that first time being exposed it must do something to your body to make you an attractive host for years to come, because against my choice I had to move back to Oklahoma where I had never got them before on the property I I lived at previously, since I returned to Oklahellma I have got them at least 6 times.
Now I get them every time I get near the back of my property, like they have marked me with a scent that lasts for years to attract them to me. They have damaged my immune system making me weak to them.
It really upsets me to look online, try and find out how you get them, and every damn professional or so called expert says from other people, when my isolation has proven to me exposure to others is not the only way. The first person who ever got these in other words did not get them from a person Duh! It is not like people are borne with them or were created with them as a part of their body, People are idiots, mostly the book smart with no capacity common sense but only programmed by what others write in books..
After getting them so many times, I now know how to tell if they are on me within 1 or 2 days.
I know to cover the area where they bored the hole in my skin with a much larger patch with the pad soaked with tea tree oil and keeping it on changing it daily for at least a week, burning the hell out of myself, but also stopping them from spreading because each time you are infected it gets worse.
With my most recent infection I was not aggressive, thought it was a mosquito bite, they quickly bred got all over my body and my blood got infected (sepsis) , it almost killed me. Had to take an antibiotic, then I decided to buy a big backhoe, I plan on clearing off my property with it, and burning all the habitat they use and spraying it with Permethrin. To me they are a deadly threat at 62 years old.
I know more about this subject than any doctor or researcher on the internet that has not had my first hand experience and my unwanted study except out of necessity for my own survival. This parasite is a biblical plague, if you ever get them you will know what I mean.
I hope this helps others when I am dead and gone and the internet lives on. If that is the only thing I accomplish in this life leaving this behind to help others, at least some good will have come from my suffering.
If you get these I will give you some good advice, get some 5% permethrin cream, take a hot shower then apply it to EVERY part of your body except your eyeballs, and up to and a little into your hair line all around, on me, that is as far as they ever infected me when they covered the rest of my body, leave the cream on at least 12 hours, change your bedding every morning and clothes and wash them in very hot water every night and dry them on the highest heat, you may need to reapply the cream in 7 to 12 days but the sores will itch for months after they are dead, their feces and dead offspring are stuck under your skin and your body struggles to fight the infection ant try to expel them, I itched for months every time till it bled all the impurities out.. The treatment cream is called Lyclear you can get on ebay or by prescription from your doctor, it is 5% Permethrin. A poison they use for termites , but does not stay in your system just kills the mites at such low 5% dose, go figure they are boring tunneling creatures just like termites except you are the wood.
I was trying to mow the back of my property this week, a day later I could feel a bite spot it looks like but is actually where the scabie entered inside me, so I wasted no time taking no chances.
As I write this, I have a large patch over the bite or entrance hole I can only see because it is red and a bump. The patch has Pymethrin cream and tee tree oil on it. The patch is large because they bore under your skin up to 4 or 5 inches while your skin protects them from the oil till their babies ( larva) bore up from where they were laid all along the tunnel , you do not want them boring from under the patch where they come up to the surface where there is no tee tree oil to kill them and spread all over your body, Been there experienced that!
They hatch usually in 7 days , if the whole prospective tunnel is not covered from the mothers entrance bore hole in your skin to around 4 inches or more from the entrance hole with a patch soaked in tee tree oil, they will escape the oil, come up from your skin and crawl usually 1 to 6 inches from where they exit the skin bore into you, wait to get bred by a male, and start boring and laying more eggs infesting your whole body within a month.
Scabies can not live more than 4 days (to be safe) off a host unless in Nature, Sarcopti scabies is the human form of mange, dogs have a different species of mange parasite that does not chose humans as their host, but dogs can carry then human mite on their coat if they have been exposed to them and spread them to you, the dog is just not their host.
They are most active at night or if your out in the sun and it is hot you will feel them moving inside you and itch like crazy, that is how you will know you have them, you will feel them moving inside you and itch like crazy from the crap and eggs they leave behind as they bore tunnels under your skin.
I have to say from this experience, if there is a God ( a creator), he, or she is the most evil thing that has ever existed to have created such evil creatures.
I now hate the God I was taught to believe was good, because of these things I know the God spoken of in the bible does not exist, you have to get them like I have to understand this.
There is no good God that would do such a thing to cause so much pain and misery to what he calls his children, this is only common sense most people do not possess.
I have more good in my fingers typing this and caring about others that might get this parasite than any God has showed mankind in all of creation.
I hope my bad experience helps others with this parasite.
Re think your God, it is more likely an uncaring creature alien to us that has put us on this earth as some sick experiment. But I guess everyone needs a fantasy to fight their fears of death and the unknown. I just know (reality and this world). It is what it is.
Not a world made by any good entity.
I was not given a free will to be created and put on this earth to be tormented, to suffer and to die, any entity that does such things to their creation and perpetuates as long as it has existed it is evil and vengeful, not loving and forgiving so you Christians do not tell me about your good God there is no evidence of.
