  • Here we have another parasitic type operation. Steve Tvedten has some excellent information on approaching this naturally. I am sure that there are other methods. I even believe that orange oil (diluted) may be effective. There is more about orange oil on this site. Hulda Clark has some very interesting information about parasites and how common they are with humans in these recent decades. Here is Steve's information from his website at http://www.safe2use.com/pests/scabies/scabies.htm "Scabies is a contagious (catching) disorder of the skin caused by very small, wingless insects or mites called the Human Itch mite or Scabies itch mite Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis (Hering). The female insect burrows into the skin where she lays 1 - 3 eggs daily. A very small, hard to see, zigzag blister usually marks the trail of the insect as she lays her eggs. Other more obvious symptoms are an intense itching (especially at night) and a red rash that can occur at the area that has been scratched. The most common locations for scabies are on the sides of fingers, between the fingers, on the backs of the hands, on the wrists, heels, elbows, armpits, inner thighs and around the waist (belt line). If untreated, the female will continue to lay eggs for about five weeks. The eggs hatch and the new mites begin the cycle all over again. The mites themselves are too small to be seen without magnification. One of the great problems with scabies always has been misdiagnosis. Scabies is spread by personal contact, e.g., by shaking hands or sleeping together or by close contact with infected articles such as clothing, bedding or towels. It is usually found where people are crowded together or have frequent contact, and is most common among school children, families, roommates, and sexual partners. Scabies can be spread by the insect itself or by the egg. Prompt action is required to rid a person of the insects and eggs. Sulfur has been used (6 - 10% in lotion or cream) since Roman times as a scabicide, but you might be allergic. Infestation - Scabies are transmitted by direct personal contact only e.g. sexual contact. Crowded conditions, particularly where children sleep together, spread scabies infestations most quickly. A scabies mite infestation begins when a fertilized female cuts into the skin and burrows in the upper layer of skin. She lays eggs in the burrows. Larvae hatch in the burrows and come to the surface to molt. Two nymphal stages and the adult stage are spent on the skin surface; only fertilized females burrow beneath the skin surface. Favored places of infestation include the skin between fingers, at the bend of elbows and knees and under breasts. Though the idea of mite burrowing, even if it is only in the epidermis, might bring on itching, these sensations do not develop for a month after the initial infestation; it takes two or three generations with subsequent secretions and excretions to bring about sensitivity to burrowing. If you think your child or someone else in the family has scabies - Try a sauna and/or try bathing, washing or soaking in diluted Lice R GoneĀ® Shampoo, Safe Solutions, Inc. Enzyme Cleaner with Peppermint, or sulfur and/or borax - then call your medical provider to be sure you are no longer infected. To avoid reinfestation, all clothing, towels and bedding should be thoroughly laundered once all those with scabies begin their treatment. Use hot water over 120o F. (equal to hot tap water in most homes). Try washing in Safe Solutions, Inc.'s Enzyme Cleaner with Peppermint and borax. Combs, brushes, barrettes and anything with which your child has had contact should be soaked in hot water (over 120o F.) and Safe Solutions, Inc.'s Enzyme Cleaner with Peppermint or borax for at least 15 minutes."
  • 1.color safe bleach on all your clothes and sheets. 2.neem and tumeric pills from your local organic store [twice a day till they run out] 3.epsom salts and tea tree soap [take a bath as long as you can, do not wash salty water off when u are done.] -do this for two weeks. and you will notice the mites are dead. no harmful chemicals. long lasting. no internet gimmicks. itching last after mites are dead for another week or so- but not as intense. doctors are a waste of money!
  • I think that instead of relying on a bunch of alternative medicine supported only by meaningless anecdotal evidence and never tested against a placebo for effectiveness, you should contact a real doctor and treat your scabies the way he or she recommends. Most will prescribe something like permethrin.
  • after medication and itching and medication and itching....I got to thinking about the simular things about lice and scabies. Lice products have the same chemicals in them as scabies medications. Same medications? Simular basics? I had learned some time ago that some lice infestations are resistant to the chemicals. In our local Head Start program it was sugested to cover the childs head with Vasiline to sufficate the lice. Bingo!! I could not go around for hours covered in vasiline. I decided to try a different approch. I covered the stuborn critters with surgical tape! Every inch of them! Next morning I GENTLY removed the tape. Not sure if they died because of lack of air or if the tape yanked em out but it worked! Take note...shave the area to be taped. Makes removal painless.
  • cold bath and witch vera
  • Kids know how to harness the sun with a magnifying glass in order to burn leaves and stuff. I've treated areas around my fingers this way with success. Note, be careful not to burn yourself--it's not neccessary. These creatures don't like heat, a quick, little "zap" does a lot. Repeat as needed.
  • This works for scabies and head lice. Get in the shower with the water as hot as you can stand it. Thoroughly warm your body (or just your head for lice. Now turn the water to cold. Thoroughly chill your body (or just your head for lice). Repeat a time or two. Don't burn yourself, this treatment works because insects are unable to stand the sudden, abrupt shifts in temperature.
