How To Kill Scabies Mites Naturally

The best and safest way to kill scabies mites is to use natural products. If you have been experiencing pink itchy bumps and dry scaly skin and it has been there for more than a week, it is best to see a dermatologist because it just might be Scabies. This condition is due to an infestation of the human itch mite or the Sarcoptes scabiei var Hominis transmitted by direct and prolonged skin-to-skin contact with an infected person.

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.

Recent studies have shown that the herbal and organic oils like tea tree, neem, olive oils or a mixture of these oils are very effective treatments for Scabies. Topical versions of the Tea Tree Oil have antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral qualities. Also know for its cosmetic properties and its soothing smell, many scabies patients choose this as a natural cure to soothe their rashes. Many testimonies say that it is quite effective with continued application.

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.

Treatments involving Olive oil is usually composed of a mixture with another ingredient, such as an antiseptic oil or the most common mixture with garlic. Olive oil helps reduce the itching and redness of the rash, although it takes time before you actually get to see its positive results.

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.
