What is the Natural and Holistic Treatment for Scabies?

What is Scabies?

Whoever said that size does matter has in fact never come in contact with this herculean pint-sized diminutive eight-legged monster. Have you heard of the Human Itch Mite? The one that despite its microscopic stature is so brazen that it not only infects you, but also drills burrows in your skin and starts producing an army right away initiating a downright siege that will have you itch yourself red and blue without mercy.

Yes, we are talking about the sarcoptes scabiei mite, the one that brings on with it the terribly itchy and highly contagious condition called scabies, if it is allowed to make your body its breeding ground.

If left untreated, these mites multiply and colonize in the top layer of the skin to live and feed. The terrifying part is that the bug can spread very easily with as much as a close physical contact to another host. So, family members, close relatives, classmates, and colleagues are potentially under risk if any one person is carrying the scabies nit. Thus, creating awareness about prevention and treatment is absolutely vital so that the infection is properly contained and the person affected is effectively treated.

How can Scabies be Treated?

There are several treatment options that claim to make you pest-free. Some of them are conventional medicines such as Permethrin and Benzene that may kill the surface roaming mites but they contain harmful chemicals, provide temporary relief and are also accompanied by a host of side-effects. In fact, these drugs are also supposed to be neurotoxic and carcinogenic in nature and not recommended for long term use.

Others managing modalities include natural and holistic alternatives such as herbs, homeopathic tinctures, etc. that are traditionally believed to not just act on removing the meandering mites, but also boost your immune system, enabling your body to create such conditions that force the mites to abandon your body immediately and reduce itching without any side-effects. So, if you’ve already tried dousing yourself with toxic chemicals and are still itching then it’s a sign to try something that is more holistic and safer than chemically synthesized molecules. Read on to see whether herbs and homeopathic ingredients are the answer to your woes.

Natural and Holistic Alternatives for Scabies

Several natural remedies have shown immense potential in being able to afford comprehensive and holistic substitutes for toxic chemical molecules and with the myriad of complexities that synthetic drugs give rise to, its only time that nature is restored to its original reverence and respect. Several natural ingredients have been clinically tested and their results have been promising. Some of the ingredients tested for scabies include:

  1. Neem Oil

The oil extracted from the Azadirachta indica plant is said to be an ace analgesic, antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial agent. Numerous lab studies have tested neem oil’s use in treating scabies and a study showed that all scabies mites died after being exposed to neem oil for four and a half hours. 1 Neem also appears to soothe inflamed skin, lessen the irritation and dull the pain.
