    Hi there

     

    In researching your question, no scabies are not going to be in your eyes.  Here is a web site devoted to scabies facts and they say:  "Normal scabies infestations are not known to go to the head. They are usually located from the neck down."

     

    So whatever it is you are feeling in your eyes is probably not scabies.  I would also strongly recommend not using eye drops which are years old. 

     

    Please do see your doctor if you have any more concerns or worries. 

     

    Thank you for your question.

      I had scabies first hand and was steered wrong by lots of medical professionals. They all told me I had everything but scabies. I suffered with it for a year and a half and was being treated like I was crazy from all the doctors. then I went to a doctor that deals with parasite infection got tested and had scabies like I thought all along. YES, SCABIES do go in your eyes on your head, eyebrows, eye lashes, in your ears. You will feel like bugs are crawling all over your body. Yes you will know when they are gone believe me! All these facts that you can feel the effects after treatment ARE WRONG. When they are gone you won't feel anything anymore. I had them for a year and a half. After I went to the specialist for them it took extensive different treatments for over 6 months to eradicate them, so I wouldn't believe all these medical facts on them....... READ MORE

    Ok, its not bugs in your eyes. I was there and did that. Thought the same thing. Been going crazy for the past year and a half. My faith in God has helped tremendously, also allergies whether you want to believe this or not plays a big part. You can itch to you bleed w allergies. You can also feel as if you have things moving on your skin if your having bad allergies to anything. Try Zadiator. Its 12.99 at walmarts. Its eye drops. They are on the shelves. If you haven't been to a dermotologist for to check allergies, do it. This has been a crazy year of seasonal things happening. Please. Take it from me, it works on your eyes right away! READ MORE
