Unique Medical Problem, Any Dermatologists?

Did all of them plus many others. They didn't help, most of all they didn't cure. You must understand that it's not about what's going on above the skin surface, it's about what's going on under your skin. That is why the first thing they do is a biopsy.  (Mar 6, 2013 | post #6)

Unique Medical Problem, Any Dermatologists?

I am not here to seek money donations. I am here to seek a dermatologist who will take a special interest in my case and cut me a deal. I am miserable living with these parasites and now I am having heart palpitations, stomach and intestine problems. The local hospital ER's have turned me away. Citing my case is beyond their scope of care. What to do?  (Mar 5, 2013 | post #2)

Unique Medical Problem, Any Dermatologists?

I am a 53 year old man, living near downtown Colorado Springs. I retired several years ago after my wife and 21 year old son were killed in a car accident. I was in shock and grief stricken and had a breakdown. I was given antidepressants and other drugs by doctors who were trying to get me well so I could return to work. I ended up getting the wrong meds and had a grand mal seizure and permanent damage causes me to take anti-seizure meds for the rest of my life. Anyways, I went through years of grief counseling but you never really recover from a loss like losing a wife and son at the same time. It's really traumatic and you never see life the same way. I never went back to work and because of the epileptic seizures I went on SSDI. My wife and I always talked about retiring to some exotic beautiful place, so I relocated to Costa Rica. For almost two years I lived in a paradise in the rain forest near all the wonderful wildlife and even lived in view of a active volcano. But one morning I woke up from bed feeling the sensation of bugs crawling on me so I jumped out of bed and didn't see anything but was itching so I took a hot shower with lots of soap but the itching continued. I saw my Costa Rica doctor and he said I had a simple case of Scabies, that it was no big deal, just use the oral and topical meds for three weeks and follow his instructions and I would be good as new. Well my condition became much worse and my doctor sent me to a specialist who also diagnosed me as having Scabies. He increased the dose of the oral med and guaranteed I be cured within days. Well my condition got worse and I had swelling in my eyes, skin eruptions all over my body so I panicked and returned to the U.S. to seek more advanced, more knowledgable medical care. For almost two years I have seen two dozen doctors and I am still not cured. I've been lost in the medical community not finding a doctor who takes a interest in my case. I've spend $11,000 on doctors , prescriptions and remedies of all kinds. Nothing has cured me. I am in desperate need of a board certified dermatologist who will take a biopsy and pursue an aggressive treatment regime. The problem is that I've spent my savings on all the previous do nothing doctors so I do not have health insurance. I can re-enroll in Medicare but most doctors do not accept Medicare patients because ObamaCare is paying less to the doctors. Anyways, these rain forest skin mites are now causing internal problems that need urgent care. Does anyone know of a dermatologist in Colorado Springs who accepts low income, non-insured patients on a sliding pay scale or pro bono given this is a rather unique case? My health is in a terrible state, I need a dermatologist as soon as possible. Thank you. P.S. The local clinics like Peak Vista do not have dermatologists. And I have called around and they want $375 per office visit. There is no way I can pay that when my sole income is Social Security. I need help.  (Mar 5, 2013 | post #1)

Scabies

CURED! My scabies survival story.

You obviously didn't have Scabies. Permethrin no longer cures Scabies. Your story is B.S..  (Oct 9, 2012 | post #2)

How long does Ivermectin take to work?

Go online and order Eprinex pour on for cattle 250ml for about $50. It's suppose to be very powerful stuff. Apply it from the scalp on your head to the soles of your feet, leave on 8-14 hours then take a bleach with epsom salt bath. Many people on this forum are reporting very good results.  (Sep 11, 2012 | post #124)

Eprinex and DMSO

Aren't Moxidectin and Eprinex both forms of Ivermectin? Just guessing here but I would expect using both at the same time would sort of saturate the body internally and externally with enough of the drug to wipe out all the bugs. What is the difference between Ivermectin Horse Paste and Moxidectin Horse Paste? Aside from Moxidection crossing the blood barrier.  (Sep 11, 2012 | post #330)

Scabies

bleach bath recommended by dermatologist

Pouring undiluted bleach on a cloth and then applying it to your skin will cause skin damage. Bleach will not cure Scabies but it can clean your skin of Scabies debris and open up the burrows so topical treatments can penetrate deeper. You need to be taking bleach bathes with 1-2 cups bleach in a hot tube of water and add 1-2 cups Epsom Salts or Baking Soda then soak in it, submerge your head, then use soap and shampoo to wash yourself, drain the tub and shower rinse. Once you've towel dried apply Advantix 2 Blue for Extra Large Dogs, it has 45% permethrin, apply it from the scalp on your head to the soles of your feet and leave on for 8-14 hours. While you are applying the topical Advantix you need to be ingesting ivermectin either via prescription tablet, dose based on your weight, or order ivermectin horse paste and follow the weight based scale for the proper dose. You should be on this treatment regime for 15 days. During this time you need to keep your living space clean. Freeze your bedding, shoes, bath towels, clothing so you don't reinfest yourself. The Scabies mites do not survive freezing temps. They are however very resistant and difficult to eradicate. Most doctors are clueless how to cure people of Scabies and they will suggest outdated protocols that do not help much less cure.  (Sep 11, 2012 | post #418)

In any case, I hope you are feeling better.  (Sep 11, 2012 | post #328)

Scabies

Eprinex and DMSO

Sk, I must be a little dense this morning, exactly how am I responsible for your Moxidectin overdose? I've never taken Moxidectin and everything I know about it is from what Faerie posted. I've never tried to convince anyone to take it. In fact, everyone on the Scabies Topix threads know that I encourage the use of oral ivermectin in either tablet or horse paste form with Advantix 2 Blue / 45% Permethrin. I'm surprised that you would think I am somehow responsible for your experience with Moxidectin. In the past I have always defended you and tried to show you kindness. Now all the sudden you are turning on me. Not very cool.  (Sep 11, 2012 | post #327)

Eprinex and DMSO

How are your symptoms RK? Are you taking Moxidectin orally and rubbing on Eprinex? So far there haven't been any negative posts about Eprinex. Apparently the stuff really works. Now if Eprinex could cure on it's own or if some additional oral or topical could be added that would seal their fate. Could it be Moxidectin? Regular iver horse paste?  (Sep 10, 2012 | post #309)

Be careful SK. I think RK is right about you scaling back on the Moxidectin from from dose every 12 hours to once every 3 days. There's probably just so much ivermectin your body can take. Are you still feeling biting and crawling sensations?  (Sep 10, 2012 | post #308)
