Home Remedies for Scabies



Scabies is a parasitic infection of skin caused by mites that dig in to the upper layer of the skin surface. The parasite causing this skin infection is named as Sarcoptes Scabiei. It is an eight-legged crawling parasite. The infection is characterized by wavy lines on the surface of skin, tiny nodules, pustules, reddish blisters that are highly itchy. Under severe conditions, scaly, thickened crusts containing thousands of mites may occur. This form of scabies is known as crusted scabies or Norwegian scabies.

Hinges and crevices of the body such as waist, genital areas, in between the fingers, buttocks, elbow, toe, feet, armpit, under the breasts in woman, are prone to scabies. People with weak immune system, impoverished and people suffering from malnutrition easily fall prey to the attack of the mites. The body becomes allergic to attack, resulting in scabies. This skin infection is highly contagious and spreads through close, direct contact or touch. Scratching of the affected area may lead to its spreading to other parts of the body. The problem of itching worsens at night.
