    yeah they're not a sign of muckiness or anything.

    I've got them right now myself (bit gross I know but oh well)...doused myself in that Debac M lotion last week, washed everything I own (including jackets, coats etc) in super hot water and so far they seem to be going.

    I have no clue where mine came from either, I don't even have a bf so I'm not in close enough contact with anyone to pick them up. No pets either.

    Just praying they're going for good! The stuff the doc prescribes is available over the counter so I'm not sure going to see him/her would offer anymore help. Mine did say you can pick it up from kids so I guess if you have small bros/sis or babysit? :confused:

    Towels & sheets at 90 degrees....everything else on 60 degrees at least. Pop em all on a hot drying cycle too and this should kill the little b*ggers

    I dunno about the 3 day thing, I read it was 7 days and the stuff had to be stored in an airtight container! The hot washing thing is probably the best, total 'mare dragging all my stuff over to the laundry but luckily I had a hungover flatmate in tow

    I was hoping they'd gone but I have a v. similar looking rash that's just flared up on my arm so I'm not convinced! I noticed them first on a Saturday, then went to the doc and got the stuff the next Thursday (I have eczema so I thought it was just that or a bad reaction to a food). It was a blotchy red rash up both my arms between the elbows and wrists and a teeny bit on my hands too. I have abolsutely no idea how I caught it, I have a total aversion to hugging people etc let alone "close physical contact" so I am totally baffled :eek:

    ahhhhh just the thought of that makes me scringe. i had it a few years ago and it was such a horrible few months in my life so sad and felt like dieing. its torture.

    here's what to do, use the cream your GP gave you and rub it over your WHOLE body, wash ALL your clothes in HOT water, bed spread, pillow, pillow case, EVERYTHING, towels, just EVERYTHING!

    also, dont forget even if you dont have it anymore, your body will Still itch like crazy because the mite's dead bodies and their excretions are still in your body for a while. so if you itch even a month after its gone thats normal. good luck
