Family & I contracted scabies from our dog. Can we use sulphur soap to help get rid of them? How long should it stay on in the shower? Safe for 1yr old?

Yes, but only kills: Live mites. Animal scabies mite does not reproduce on the human host, so a few days should take care of it. For human to human scabies, the sulfur soap will not kill the eggs, so the treatment will have to be repeated for several weeks. I recommend pymethrin lotion applied overnight and repeated in a week. It is safe for infants over a year old. See the label on one product: http://www. Cuticareproducts. Com/scabies_treatments_s/1820.htm ...Read more

I may have mites infestation am 5 months pregnant. What can I do can I shower with sulphur soap is it safe I'm out of options please help : (?

Mites in Pregnant: Yes. Sulfur soap is safe. Better if you find a cream or ointment with Sulfur 6% to leave on and repeat in 7-10days. But, It would be best if you use this concern to start your prenatal counseling. A Health care provider will help you to monitor this problem and will be sure that you and the baby are doing well. With mites the other people living with you have to be treated as well or it'll repeat. ...Read more

It and its partner triclocarbon are antimicrobial agents that inhibit the growth of bacteria and other microbes on your skin. They can be found in everything from different toothbrushes and toothpastes -- to keep gingivitis at bay -- to some brands of socks and paint.
