Do scabies grow bigger the longer they live in a human host

Can u see the scabies mite?
I actually have seen some type of bug on my sheets after using ivermectin
I do own a small microscope but I thought they were too big to be seen? I have been fighting this infestation since July 2015 Altho I believe things are much better. Is there anywhere you can send a specimen in for analysis ?

Scabies and herpes

I actually convinced myself I had herpes and broke up with my 2 year bf to protect him and I over someone talking about scabies the other day. So I ran to the hospital and I couldn't believe it. I never had herpes , I had mites living in side of me. I tried everything befor finding out with scabies. Itch cream, eczema cream, even rubbing alcohol. Al though after I was prescribed the meds for it at the doctor after day 1 I felt so much better. So I guess never make assumptions.

hydrogen peroxide and scabies
| med
i tried ivermectin, permethrin, hydrocortisone and banadryl as prescribed by doctor but none worked.when i applied hydrogen peroxide i got a big relief but was not completely cured.
another doctor prescibed prostavital and has helped me a lot.
i advise people to stop using antiboitic since it makes matters worse because for the last 10 years that was what i was using but also made matters worse.

scabies and me
| sherry
I went to a conference about 2 hours from my home. Since I had to be there so early in the morning, and I didn't want to have to get up so early, I decided to get a hotel room and there you have it. I got scabies from the bedding in that hotel. I have known that I have had it for about two weeks. so far it has cost me way over 100,00. I am headed toward two hundred now. I read online where someone used shea butter, so I went and bought shea butter soaps and lotions, as well as a few other things. They had said that the bugs just fell off when they used it. Well I was skeptical but I took a good bath and used the shea butter products as well as an oatmeal product and something called African black soap ( and it is black) It made me feel really good and whoever that was that gave the advice about the shea butter was right. When I got out of the tub, I began rubbing the shea butter lotion on my body and yes, I could literally pick the bugs off of myself. I felt so dirty even after just having a bath, but I am going to do this every day. The bath was wonderful and made me feel so much better.
