Does Chlorine Kill Scabies
Scabies: There is no need to apply insecticides to clothing, bedding or environmental surfaces. All bedding, towels, and clothes used by the scabies-infested individuals should be washed in hot water and a typical laundry detergent. Clothes and bedding that can not be washed should be dry cleaned or left open and unused for 3-4 days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ejaculate or seminal fluid dries out very quickly when outside the human body, once it is dried the sperm die almost immediately. Dissipated into pool water, a similar outcome would occur. ...Read more
Depends: Triclosan works by interfering with a bacteria's ability to build cell membranes (basically the skin of the germ). At low concentrations triclosan is bacteriostatic meaning it prevents bacteria from increasing in number. At higher concentrations triclosan kills bacteria.

Try a milder approach such as Elimite (permethrin) cream from the doctor, instead of going nuclear on the mite. ...Read more
