Many people who are infected with Scabies would rather treat themselves because they get embarrassed about their condition. The prescribed cure called Scabicides are said to kill the human itch mites and even their eggs. Although proven effective, scabicides contain powerful toxic ingredients, that is why many try to find alternative natural treatments that are as effective but much safer to use.
An Australian study in 2008 showed that "Azadirachtin” with Neem seed extract is very effective in regulating infestations of the human itch mite and other insects like fleas, ticks and lice. It is also a repellent with low toxicity. The Neem seed Oil is a mild antiseptic used as an anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory treatment as well. The neem oil has been tagged as "the village pharmacy" for it can cure many other diseases aside from Scabies.
Scabies is a very irritating and embarrassing condition. People who have this either prefer to hide their condition because they are afraid that people would avoid them; or seek self medication and just hope for the best.
