Not Sure

I have a problem with my hands.  My doctor says that it is scabies. I get what seems like water blisters on my hands. When I 'pop' them they get really dry.My dr says that this is scabies.I have done the treament several times and still the same thing on my hands.  Live with several people and they have no problems.  If there is anyone that has the same problem I would love to know.

happy jack kennel dip. $22 available at Tractor Supply
kills- fleas, ticks and mange mites. contains permethrin 30%
smells lemony, mix about 1 oz to 16oz water. Do a total body drench, including scalp and face. use a wash rag to spread. Do at least 1 time a week or sooner for 6 weeks. Im 4 weeks in and nearly cured. the bugs don't like this at all. Scabies have a 4 stage life cycle. cannot be easily killed in all stages. Got to stay after them

Hmmm, not sure. It could be scabies. It often starts on the hands (a common transfer point). IF it is scabies, this could help you.

In my case, I used a mixture of clove oil and almond oil (1-2 Tbsp of almond oil to a few drops clove oil.) I like the aura cacia brand personally (I think it's a better quality for a grocery store brand), but NOW Clove oil works too, and at a much better price (try Whole foods or Super 1 (or something like those stores) will carry these products. In conjunction, you can also take something like Michael's Naturopathic Paraherbs to help fight internally.

Wash your sheets at least 2-3x's per week in HOT water. I recommend putting your bedding in the dryer daily on high for 20+ minutes. The rest of the time, spray down your bedding, mattress (this is important!), and floors/carpet with a mixture of clove oil and water (much more effective than vacuuming in my experience). Just get a little plastic spray bottle from RiteAid, fill it with water, and add a couple teaspoons of clove oil. Shake it up and voila!

For my showers, I used TheraNeem shampoo. I can't stand the smell of straight neem (I tried that and it was way too strong for me). But the shampoo is a nice blend and was great (also takes care of any dandruff issues you might have).

A warning about clove oil: Do not use it near your eyes. If you do accidentally brush your hand against your eye area, wash your hands and face with soap and water. Also a good idea to not use it too close to your private parts.

In my case, this got rid of the monsters in about 6 weeks. But I FELT better within the first few days. I know MSM capsules also help. As others have stated, garlic is pretty amazing! I'm sure there are many ways to kill off these parasites, but this is what worked best for me - PERMANENTLY!

Best of luck to you! I wish you great health and an itch free life! :)

Ion silver cream , or ion silver powder for info; go to the Bob Beck protocol.
Garlic is a good insect killer and might be doing a good thing as well.
Thank you for sending this message around dear scabie-fighters , much love.
and hopefully science will pick up and integrate this method as it is an overal good medicine.

I had the same problem on my hands and feet. It turned out to be pustular psoriasis. Dermatologist gave me creams that didn't work. I bought Gold Bond Ultimate at Walmart and within a week it had cleared up. P.S. Dermatologist said he had 3 other patients that day that thought they had scabies and really had psoriasis.

That's the exact thing with me ... I have these air bubbles on my hands and no one else is itchy and I have so many bumps and scars just on my hands ....
