When I had scabies about 3 years back, I went to the doctor - she gave a script for premarin - after using it twice, my skin kept itching so I told the doctor and she said you will still itch even though it was gone - well I believe it so I never used anymore premarin. Needless to say, the doc was right. The scabies were gone even though I had itch for about a year then it finally stopped. Then 3 years later, I got scabies again - this time I looked on the internet for a natural cure. I found that Tree Tea Oil (about an ounce) along with Olive Oil (about 3 or 4 drops)- pour this into bath water and soak (your entire body and head) in the bathtub for about a half hour. It works but you have wash your bed sheet, etc. And clothing in hot water. Also need to clean your furniture and anything else that you touch.
Tea tree oil really works on scabies! I had tried just about everything over a 3 month period and finally relief!!! I applied it to the itchy parts a few times a day and at bedtime and it took a few days to calm down and maybe 10 days to completely cure. I still had lots of scarring and weird patches over most of my body. I treated these with lavender oil and they cleared up like magic! So don't give up - there is relief!
Tea Tree oil, after a bath of baking soda, cured my scabies. The prescription my doctor gave me made my scabies a lot worse so I decided to stop using it. The scabies burrows stung and itched so badly, so after taking a bath I applied tea tree oil on 5 cotton balls and whiped my body down. The itching is gone and my scabs are clean and no longer bleeding from all the previous scratching.
