Natural and Holistic Treatments To Remedy Scabies

Written by Print  E-mail
A typical Chinese prisoner covered in scabies. Her crime, by the way, was practicing religion. This human rights prisoner was likely tortured to death. Stop supporting the Chinese Government with your purchases.

Scabies is a term that describes a parasitic skin infestation by the itch mite (sarcoptes scabiei). The name itch mite should give readers a clear indication of the effect of these little monsters. They burrow under the skin to lay their eggs, and they create bacterial infections in the process. The overall immune system is usually weakened. The itching only begins after 30 days of infection, and during this initial symptom-less period, victims may pass this condition on to all of their family members and friends. These highly contagious infestations can be transmitted whenever there is skin contact, or when there is shared contact with cloth fibers. Infestations have been known to run rampant in institutional settings.

Finding effective natural methods of eliminating such parasites can be a challenge for those who practice alternative medicine, because the methodology required is in opposition to normal procedures. Alternative medicine normally concentrates upon working with nature, to help it overcome whatever has caused an imbalanced state of dis-ease. In a sense, traditional methods can be thought of as a little too pro-life to be of any use. Poisons are the forté of our adversaries. The pharmaceutical industry poisons best, and they have literally transformed the poisoning of their own customers into a science. Allopathic medicine has plenty of poisonous chemicals that people can rub all over their skin, with their products often containing carcinogens such as benzene and formaldehyde.

Conversely, alternative medicine usually works by improving the health of the body, so that it may easily kill threatening bacteria or viruses. This left us in a research predicament, whereby we needed to find something that was both deadly to the insects, and yet safe for people.

Treating the Mites

Tea tree oil is one of the most popular remedies for eliminating scabies. It seems to be able to penetrate the skin and suffocate the insects. This is similar to the way that nail polish works to kill chiggers. Be advised that nail polish will rarely eliminate scabies, because the mites will typically relocate before the nail polish dries. Tea tree oil treatments are applied directly to the bite areas with a cotton swab. The surrounding area and anywhere else with excessive itching is treated.

Neem oil is used by organic farmers as a natural insecticide. The E.P.A. reports that neem is "generally recognized as safe" for use in food products. This God-given "insecticide" is considered so safe for humans that they exempted their typical stipulations for maximum pesticide residues, so that unlimited amounts can be present in foods. Neem works differently to most pesticides, because it does not kill on contact. For some insects, it hormonally disrupts their life cycles and their desire to eat, whilst with others, it simply repels the insects by smell. Its smell is not strong to humans, however. In the case of scabies, neem oil prevents reproduction, a fact that is very pertinent due to their short life cycles. Neem seems to work by altering the hormones of insects (like soy), and in fact, neem is an all-natural contraceptive in humans too. It is a much safer contraceptive than "the pill". Most scabies sufferers stop getting bites after two days of neem treatments, but some adult mites are guaranteed to still be alive. If possible, rub neem oil all over the body with a cotton swab, and purchase neem soap to use in the bath or shower on a daily basis for two weeks (the life cycle).

Cayenne was described in the herbal book, The Badanius Manuscript, printed in 1552, for treating scabies. Topical applications of cayenne will quite literally burn the scabies, without causing any health problems for the host. Most people who use it place large amounts of cayenne into a warm bath and remain in it for an extended time (until the water becomes cold). You can purchase cheap packets of cayenne from the "Mexican" section of many grocery stores. Remember to protect your eyes while handling or bathing in cayenne. You should always keep an emergency eye wash solution in a dropper bottle containing colloidal silver and a pinch of sea salt.

Zinc can be used to help fight the secondary infections that occur under the skin and to prevent opportunistic fungal outbreaks. Grind zinc tablets into a powder, and add water until it makes a paste. Apply it to all irritated areas of the skin. Mixing turmeric with this can help to stop itching, and it has its own anti-parasitic qualities. This is also how to make a natural anti-dandruff cream. Zinc is the main anti-dandruff ingredient in commercial shampoos.

Our own colloidal copper lotion product will help to prevent secondary problems with bacteria and fungus.

Cleaning Your Environment

Mites can live in furniture, carpets, and clothing for several days. This can become a cause of constant re-infection. Thus, it is important to thoroughly clean the house to eradicate the pests. For regular vacuuming, we recommend using a vacuum with bags, and when finished, immediately remove the bags from indoors. If using a bagless vacuum, place a small amount of salt in the collection container before vacuuming to shred and dehydrate the mites. For optimal results, put borax powder into a steam cleaning mix, and steam clean the carpets. Try to limit direct skin contact and inhalation of borax. When you are vacuuming or spreading borax powder, we recommend that you use a high quality respirator mask like those used by painters, to protect your lungs from borax inhalation, at least until it has settled. These are available at most hardware stores.

Some people have successfully used diatomaceous earth to accomplish this task in a much less hazardous way. If this method is affordable, then we recommend it. However, diatomaceous earth is primarily silica, so a protective mask should still be worn to protect the lungs, whenever there is a chance of it becoming airborne.

Note that the cheap cloth-only masks that are sold in hardware stores will offer little to no protection. Get a real respirator mask. Read the included instructions about how to test if it allows any unfiltered air inside, before beginning the application process.

    Just wanted to clarify something about chiggers and nail polish. My father is a pharmacist, now retired, and once owned several pharmacies which I managed. I was always reading the medical literature so as to be well informed when assisting customers. Chiggers do not burrow under the skin and nail polish does not work in the way people believe. This is a very common misconception. Chiggers sit on the surface of the skin and inject their saliva into the flesh. The saliva contains digestive enzymes and liquifies the flesh which they then suck up the same way we might use a drinking straw. By the time you feel the itch, they have already dropped off. They are just mites which can actually be brushed off of the skin. The nail polish probably helps with the itching initially because of the acetate it contains but any relief will be short lived. The itching subsides over time as the "wound" heals.

    Don't be put off by the Pharmacy thing. I now work in Engineering and avoid pharmaceuticals like the plague.

  • genevieve  - Clove Oil Scabies Cure

    After a year of suffering with scabies, I used clove oil and a vegetable carrier oil and finally got rid of them.

    See this article for more info:

    http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0012079

    The article details a study done on permethrin-resistant scabies. The results showed that a 6% clove oil mix with other oil killed the scabies within 15 minutes.

    When I used the clove oil, I continued using it until I felt all larvae and eggs were affected--a couple weeks total. It worked. I'm a free woman again!

    Do be careful to not go beyond the 6%--it will burn your skin if you do.

    Best wishes to all!

    Peace Love Joy & Harmony,
    Genevieve

  • hongan  - Clove oil for baby 4 months old


    Hi Genevieve,

    Thanks for sharing this valuable information. My family got scabies over 4 months. We have been treated by doctors with some medicines like Spregal, permethrin 5%, ivermertin pills and washing our cloths, bed lines... In hot water, then ironning. But scabies and itchy have not gone. We are so suffering by scabies.

    I am going to use clove oil at 6% as your recommend for adults. Do you think 6% clove oil is safe for kids (5 yrs and 2 yrs)? How about baby 4 months old? My infant baby is the most suffered one, from scalp to toe, face as well.

    Waiting for your advice.

  • Genevieve  - Reply to Hongan

    Hongan--

    I can't possibly say what would be safe for anyone, much less children. I only know that 6% worked for me. I also know that at one point I went above 6% and burned my skin, so be very careful with tender little ones.

    I'm sure by now you've already tried something, and I do apologize for not checking back sooner. I hope you're doing well.

    For the complete protocols and saga of what I went through, read my 3-star review on Amazon: Dermisil for Scabies.

    Peace Love Joy & Harmony,
    Genevieve

  • Hong An  - reply to Genevieve

    Hi Genevieve,

    Yes, I've bought one bottle of Clove Bud oil and coconut oil, then apply on our skin. It seems work!! But one week later we stopped to apply the oils, itchy returned. I wonder what's wrong? The clove oil is not good quality or what? However, I've still apply the oils and pray God for his mercy.

    Thanks for your reply. I've tried to search for your comment on Amazon but cannot see.

    Ive been dealing with scabies since september ive been using this product called scabies killer and it was working i dont see anymore bites but i know there still in me, i still itch and when i scratch witch is the worse thing to do but when i scratch those area's i see little bumps rise to the top and the itching is coming back i don't know what else to do, the scabies killer is a mixture of several oils neem oil, tea tree oil, karanja oil, Eucalyptus oil, lavender oil, peppermint oil, and Rosemary oil, and it has carrier oils coconut oil and olive oil and i thought it was going to get rid of them so I'm kinda losing faith in oils but im willing to try something else and i just wanted to know where to buy this oil, and what makes it so different from the ones I tried ?

  • Kassy Clifford  - scabies

    My family has been fighting scabies since October, but we didn't know what it was until about 3 weeks ago. It has literally been the most emotionally draining thing I have ever dealt with, as a mother. I though lice was bad!! So, we tried the Premethrin 5% cream...3 times without success. I will not be using it again. After Googling late into the night, for weeks, I think I found what works! A mixture of clove oil, meleleuca oil and coconut oil (applies to entire body, often)..Clove oil is the ONLY oil which kills the mites. Along with the oil, I sprinkled Food Grade Diatomaceaus Earth over the entire house...every pet, mattress, carpet, couch, cushion, EVERYWHERE!! The DE is very inexpensive and can be purchased at your local feed store. I have since learned it has many other health benefits too! Do not waste your time with expensive toxic prescriptions that do not work!!

  • Jess  - What to use on a one month old infant with scabies

    Do you know what I cn use on an infant?

  • say west  - for infants

    My 1 yr old had a bad case behind the ear + nape line. We used perm cream a day later she had pneumonia. I mixed 1/4 cup Argon oil with 1 Tble. Spoon Tumeric. Rubbed on scalp around face on down. Let her play in tub. Rinsed no soap. This will stain everything. They were also eating her Bottom regions. I have switched to apricot kernel oil. Can rub this all over + it doesn't burn. I also have sprayed alcohol on my hands and rubbed on her in the beginning. Around next or ears they can taste it. Be very careful with anything you put on a baby. Try a small nickel sized area first. Although all these things are natural they can burn or cause allergic reaction. I also put a 1/4 small pot of water on with 6/7 bay leaves 1 whole lemon. Boil until leaves are soft. Add to sea salt water bath. Rubbed kids in Dawn dish detergent left on 5 min. Rinse in bath no soap pat dry. Slather in Apricot oil. They slept so much better. Hope this helps. I'm the only one itching now. I just found keen oil + clove. Clove was ok until I touched accidentally around my nose( I have eczema there). It burned so bad water alone gave no relief. I had to use Dawn to wash it off. Instance relief . The Dawn surprisingly did not make it burn worse. Good luck

  • Hong An  - scabies and infant

    My infant got scabies at 2 month old. Spregal spay had made her condition even worst. I used neem leaf to bath her daily. After bathing, I used a mixer oils (6% clove oil and coconut oil) all over her body, and tried to re-apply the oils after diaper changing. Along with this, washing her clothes, bath towel, bed linen daily and ironning them about 1 month. Now she is free from scabies. Thanks God.

    Hi Kassy,

    I've tried your recomendations and our conditions are much better now. Thanks a lot! Just one thing we need your advice, that is Food grade DE. We're in Vietnam and we cannot find food grade DE here. Could you let us know which brand of DE food grade you had used and where you bought it?

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

  • Carry Smith

    Hi Kassy I was just wondering how long you left the mixture of oils on and the amount of each oil? Also my daughter is 21 months old she also sucks her thumb so I was wondering if these oils are safe on her . I can put a glove on her hand overnight so ihoefully that will be enough time. Thanks for your help!

  • Angie Flanigan  - scabies

    Hi. I was told a few months ago that my oldest tow kids had scabies for a few months ago. They have had two treatments of the cream from the doctor and it seemed to help for a little bit. I cleaned the whole house and put away all plush toys, and even closed off their room for a week while they were at dads house. I treated my youngest child and myself with tea tee oil, lavender oil, witch hazel and even alcohol before the itching and bumps were to even show up. I then treated the other kids with the oils when they came back home, and that seemed to help, because they were itching again. That only helped for a little while. Now the youngest one has been itching and has bumps all over her tummy. I haven't had much itching and no bumps that I can see yet. Im glad I have found this page. Im going to try the clove oil and a few other oils that were mentioned here. Would putting some of the bedspreads in the dryer on high be enough to kill the sabies?

  • Holly Shannon  - scabbies treatment

    Here is the thing each of you need to remember and that I have not heard one person repeat. The first exposure means live mites borrow under the skin and lay their eggs. Then you treat and the live ones die. 2 1/2 days later the eggs hatch, the new mites burrow under the skin and lay their eggs. This cycle continues on and on. So... you have to treat for a 14 day period without any missing days. This means washing all bed linens daily... baths twice a day and clothing washed daily. You have to put everything in trash bags and not walk thru the house with any clothing or linens without inside plastic. Dry pillows daily in highest heat cycle. Listen folks... this will take everything you have to get rid of. It will be emotionally and physically and financially draining. I kid you not! Do everything and anything and do it all all the time everyday. Also itch will continue that does not mean that the treatments are not working. The neem oil prevents egg laying. I is considered a better birth control for humans than the pill. Neem oil, tea tree oil are what works. If you try the cayenne bath soak be careful it can burn the skin. Epsom salts and tea tree bath soak twice daily is the best treatment that helps for the itch and the stress of it all. Don't give up!!!!!

  • michele heymans

    I too suffered from scabies for a long time ,it nearly sent me insane.I tried everything nothing worked. At the time I lived out bush and didnt have a computer to google. I did go to the doctor,but what I was given didnt work either. I resorted to kerosine and dabed it on with a rag and also washed everything and wiped down everything with the kero. It worked a treat, burnt a little on the skin, but nothing like the agony I was in with the scabies.If this helps someone. I hope it wasnt too toxic,but at the time I would have swum in it. michele

    Kerosene is an old home remedy that some from the older generation swear by. However, there is always a risk of setting yourself or your house on fire, so we cannot recommend it for that reason. It should also be worth noting that if kerosene makes contact with genitalia, it will probably cause a lot of pain.

  • Saira Iqbal  - Any advice for my 4 year old?

    My 4 year old has scabies for almost a year now after being told he had eczema. Strange thing is that no one else has it - but Dr confirmed last week after checking his skin under a magnifying glass. If clove oil works, is it 6 drops to 100 drops of carrier oil? Right now willing to try anything on him, his scratching drives him and me mad - as he wakes in the night to itch. Please can someone advise with actual recipes as I can't cope with it anymore. Goodness knows how he is coping.

  • Patty Ramirez  - Help, 5 teenagers with scabies!!

    I have 5 teens at home, and ALL of them have been infected with scabies. I don't like using chemical remedies because of the side effects.
    I've been reading about the remedies on this page. Where can I purchase these oils?

  • David court  - Scabies

    I caught the little buggers a while back and now I've got them again. Only this time I've no insurance :/
    They say to treat and wait a week for the eggs to hatch and then treat again. I say the only way that's gonna work is if all the eggs were laid on the same day. I got rid of them before ( or thought I did ) 3 or 4 times before I figured this out. They'd seem to go away then come right back full force all of a sudden. I treated 3 or 4 days in a row then again on day 7 and 8 with perm 5. Not sure what I'm gonna do this time with no insurance. I started today with perm 1 but I had no luck with the 1% during the last experience. Gonna try the different oils.

  • Mark Hall  - This helps quickly

    This worked very quickly for me. I took a normal shower. While I was still wet I applied two drops of concentrated grapefruit seed extract (gse) in the palms of my hands and rubbed them together. Once the gse was diluted and slightly lathered I rubbed them all over the affected area and quite literally my body. I reapplied additional drops to my palms as need but I went sparingly because it will irritate your skin if applied and not diluted properly. This has stopped the itching and dry skin feeling almost instantly for me. GSE is truly amazing stuff for this and many other uses. I also apply Tea Tree Oil in a similar way which seems to be a double knock out for the little pesky varmints and it also feels very good on my skin. All of these items can be purchased at Whole Foods for about 30.00 total. I seem to be free of them for about a week now.

  • Eve McIntyre

    I will be trying the tea tree oil tonight. I went to the doctor on Monday and he said it was poison ivy, took Predizone and of course it didn't work. Then I saw the burrows and knew. I think I got them from the kids, they had what we thought were insect bites, they were here for vacation and just went home so I will have to follow up with them. I have never itched so bad. I am sleeping in the spare room and so far no one else seems to have any problems. My husband will use the cream if the doctor gives it to me. I am glad I found this site, it has helped me to know that I am not the only one who doesn't know how they got these nasty critters. Thanks to everyone, and I hope we all succeed with ridding ourselves of these pests. I

  • Ruth Martin

    Someone at another site mentioned this treatment and I have been using it. Put 2 tablets alka-seltzer in a little water to fiz and disolve. Add a small handful of borax to the alka seltzer and 1/4 cup vegetable glycerin. Mix all ingredients together and let it set a while to dissolve the borax. Apply all over the area and leave on about 45 minutes. The bugs will pop out of the skin and you can wash them off. I reapply again and again and rub into the skin until I am not getting any more bugs to pop out. They are black and you can see them on your skin when they pop up. To control the itching use a hair dryer and heat the itching spots as hot as you can stand. The first time i tried this it drove them crazy and they itched terribly. I just kept reheating the area and finally the itching quit. It will probably come back at some point then just heat them again. I will also use neem oil after I use the alka seltzer mix to kill the eggs that may not have hatched. Be diligent and use this protocol a couple times a day besides wiping down everything you touch with a cloth dipped in about 1/4 chlorine and 3/4 water to kill bugs and wash all bedding and clothes daily. I took off my bedspread and stored it and only use sheet and blanket and pillow. I put the pillow in the dryer on hottest setting for about 40 minutes every day and will wash it about 2x per week. Don't get reinfected like I did by thinking I was cured and quit treating too soon. I have gone a whole week between hatches and thought I was cured but wasn't so be diligent at least a couple of weeks after you think you have killed the critters. They are difficult to get rid of but be diligent and don't skip anything even if you are tired etc. Its time consuming but I haven't found another way and have tried a lot of other protocols.

    The above is a good example of why we are the only credible source of alternative health information. You really should stop reading that other site, Ruth. Seriously.

    So the plan is to burn yourself, and then medicate with borox and chlorine bleach on yourself? Oh my...

    Let me guess.... curezone, right?

  • Cocoa kelly  - Worst Experience I ever experienced!

    I contrscted scabies on the job back in August of 2012. I didn't know what I was dealing with for some time. I thought it was fleas then I figured it was something smaller more like a mite but had NO IDEA that it was something called scabies where mites borough under the skin!When someone else at work was disgnosed as having that, I knew! It has been an ongoing absolute H_LL! I NEVER use pharmaceuticals and certainly did not want to start now. I tried EVERYTHING natural I could. I used every concoction I knew and researched what others were using and tried those. I threw away beds, bedding, clothing and so much. I used a professional steammer to steam every ceiling, wall, dresser, floor and everything in between. I tossed tons of food grade DE in and out of EVERY surface, walls, electric outlet,pets, etc. I washed in hot water with borax everything I could wash daily! I used essential oils, lavender, tea tree, clove, peppermint, neem oil, grapeseed oil with DE in it, I purchased powdered sulfur and made a concoction with coconut oil and used that quite a bit. I used EXTREMELEY hot compresses that actually burned me pretty bsd. I tried peroxide, borax and many more things and as much as some things seemed to help at first it just came right back!!! I slept in a room all by myself for months with 6 mil plastic covering floors and all and still it is now 5-12-13 Mother's day and I had to tell my son and his family NOT to come to see me! It appesars that the children gave it back to me last time I babysat a few weeks ago. I was finally thinking I may be ok and then I watched the children who had some severe looking (what I was told was diaper rash) and eczema on face and arms. Well I asked them to go to dr's and explain they had exposure to scabies and need checked. Dr did not do any scrape test or look at all except very casually and said they were fine! I know this isn't true and I am the one suffering! I have a son getting married and I am SOOOOOO intimidated to go to the wedding which is only weeks away! After doing all the natural stuff including eating tons of garlic bread and taking MSM I finally used the permetherin cream 5 TIMES! Also took Ivermectin orally 4 TIMES!!!!! And here I am because I am around people that are not being diagnosed and do not show as much of an allergy to it like I do so they aren't as freaked out, at least not yet! I just did the poison again the perentherin cream again, asked my husband who has no signs of it to also use and used a poisonous veterinarian product on my dogs this time as well. I HATE using these poisons on my husband and myself and especially on my precious pets who can't handle those things as well as a person can. I have been just beside myself. I felt like death was an actual way out and I am not a suicidal type of individual and would never do that.But you feel outside of yourself. I only hope that this epidemic will subside and will NEVER EVER affect me and ANY of my loved ones again! I am going to go back to the natural from here and hope that that is enough. Best wishes to all that has been afflicted.

    Thank you so so much what a relief to know someone has the thoroughness and simplicity of Wonderful natural treatment suggestions ~ I strongly believe in and will try a few of them and will keep you posted ~ Gratitude :)

  • Mandy Falcon  - question for Cocoa kelly

    Hello, I am so saddened to hear that your family could not visit you for Mother's Day and I hope you find a quick and sure cure for your scabies and get rid of them for good.
    My question is how did you get them from your job? I work with a person who had scabies for months and has been treated by conventional poisons three times, but she is very irresponsible and will not do the cleaning necessary to get rid of them. I work in an office and I do not have close contact with her (though she loves to hug people, I avoid that). My co-workers say you can't get it from working with someone, but from what I have been reading, I want to make sure I don't get it from her. So how did you get it at work?
    Again, I hope and pray for relief for you and your family.
    I am also interested in hearing from anyone else who got scabies at work.
    Mandy

  • Amanda Wood  - freaking out

    My son was itching for two months. In that time we tried everything, new lotion, new soap, new laundry detergent. Nothing worked and last week we took him to the doctor and the doctor wasn't sure, but she said it could be scabies. So we treated with the cream last week and this week. Just a couple days ago I noticed I have started breaking out. Now I have several bumps on my inner forearms and a few little red lines. I'm freaking out! Do I need to stop my son from playing with the next door neighbor? I want to try these natural remedies that I've read above. My mother is a family herbalist and she can help. I am just overwhelmed by the amount of effort everyone is saying must be put forth. My husband and I both work full time and it's stressing me out just thinking about having to wash all bedding and clean the house every day for weeks! Any advice on how to get through it as easily as possible would be appreciated. I just hope we can get rid if it. I feel so bad for my son itching and it's stopping him from getting a good night's rest. Please pray for us. Thank you!
