Here Is How To Get Rid Of Scabies Naturally

Scabies is a contagious skin condition caused by a mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. It's characterized by intense itching and a rash. While prescription medication is typically required to treat scabies, there are some natural remedies that can be used to alleviate symptoms and support the healing process.

According to Healthline, one effective natural remedy for scabies is tea tree oil. Tea tree oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve itching and kill mites. To use tea tree oil, mix a few drops with a carrier oil like coconut or olive oil and apply to the affected area. Repeat this process twice a day.

Another natural remedy is neem oil. Neem oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties that can help kill mites and prevent infection. To use neem oil, mix a few drops with a carrier oil and apply to the affected area twice a day.

Sulfur is another natural remedy that can be used to treat scabies. Sulfur has been used for centuries to treat a variety of skin conditions, including scabies. To use sulfur, mix it with petroleum jelly and apply to the affected area before bed. Wash it off in the morning.

In addition to these natural remedies, it's important to practice good hygiene to prevent the spread of scabies. Wash all bedding, clothing, and towels in hot water and dry on high heat. Vacuum carpets and upholstery regularly, and avoid close contact with others until the scabies has been treated.

While natural remedies can be helpful in managing scabies, it's important to consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment. Scabies can be highly contagious and may require prescription medication to fully eradicate.
