i am having a wooden bed and it is too much creaky... it destroys all my night comfort. i cannot purchase new one because it was gifted by my mother so i want to use it till the last extent. i have used following item to stop the creaks:
telcum powder
graphite powder
these items work for a very smaller time period... what is the permanent solution?

You will need to secure the parts that are rubbing.

Are the rails attached to the headboard and footboard with mortise & tenon? or with metal hangers and pins? or some other method?

Lubricating these attachment points will only provide temporary relief as you have already learned, and may make correcting the problem more difficult.

Can you attach some pictures of the bedframe? It would make it much easier to offer a solution that would work for you.

Try adding regular canning wax or even candle wax to the area. you can melt it and brush it on where you are sure it is rubbing. This will last for awhile and may have to be done every once in awhile.
This also works for drawers that are hard to slide in a chest. Also for hard to zip zippers.
