Scabies Great Natural Treatment

Unfortunately, scabies is an easily communicated disease passed from person to person through personal touch and coming in contact with infected items. Know your options to help speed up healing and undesirable side effects. Remedies include herbal medicine, foods and vitamin/mineral supplements.

 The scabies mite is a parasite that lives in human skin. This tiny creature burrows just underneath the skin’s surface and produces a characteristic eruption of very fine, crooked, slightly raised lines about one or two centimetres long. These areas usually become infected from scratching and develop sores and crusts. The itching is so intense that another name for scabies is the itch. The itching becomes unbearable in bed since the mite travels at night while the person is resting. Mites are attracted to skin folds, such as between the fingers and in the elbow creases. They do not normally spread to the face but, if the immune system is compromised, sores can spread all over the body, including the genitals.

The scabies mite is microscopic in size. The female digs into the skin to deposit her eggs, which take on the skin’s surface. Symptoms do not become apparent for a number of weeks, although they can be transmitted during this time. Scabies can be transferred by using another’s work gloves or sharing other’s clothing. In our past history, scabies were contracted through wigs and hair pieces – which meant they were found in the neck and facial area.
