Scabies is an affection of the skin that occurs due to infestation with scabies mites (Sarcoptes scabiei). If left untreated, the condition worsens and can lead to complications: impetigo (skin infection with bacteria), cellulitis and crusted scabies (usually occurs due to re-infestation). Once discovered, scabies needs either medical treatment or scabies natural treatment. Both forms of treatment involve the usage of creams and lotions that eradicate the infestation with mites. Scabies natural treatments were successfully used in the past to cure the condition and these days they are still a good option for dealing with scabies. Scabies natural treatments can replace synthetic topical medications if the condition is discovered in time and the symptoms are not severe.

Scabies natural treatments seem to be very well tolerated by the skin. Although natural treatments may need to be applied for longer periods of time to successfully eradicate the parasite mites, they are milder to the skin. Synthetic, medications usually eradicate the mites in only a few days, but sometimes aggravate the symptoms of scabies on the duration of the treatment.

It is important to note that even if the mites responsible for causing scabies are killed, their bodies remain in the skin layers and they still produce irritation and allergic reactions. Scabies natural treatments with Azadirachta indica (Neem), Curcuma longa (Turmeric) and tea tree oil can also ameliorate the symptoms of scabies. These natural alternatives to scabies medical treatments originate from the Indian system of medicine and have been successfully used in curing scabies and chronic ulcers for a long time.

Scabies natural treatments with Neem and Turmeric (usually under the form of cream or lotion) should be applied locally, on the skin. You should apply the treatment on the entire skin, not only on the regions that are visibly affected by scabies. Scabies natural treatments with Neem and Turmeric are very well tolerated by the skin and are able to completely eradicate the mites in a short period of time. The majority of patients that have been treated with Neem and Turmeric completely recovered from the condition after two weeks. Tea tree oil is also very efficient in eradicating the infestation with mites and has a calming effect on the skin. In some cases, scabies natural treatments can contain a combination of these products.

Once you begin the scabies natural treatment, you have to take steps in preventing a second infestation. Wash all your clothes, bed linens, towels and disinfect your personal items that may still be contaminated with mites. Remember that scabies parasite mites can survive for about 3 days without a human host. If you live with your family, make sure that they also follow the treatment for scabies, even they present no symptoms. In fact, make sure that everyone you came in contact when you were infested follows an appropriate treatment for scabies, as the condition is very contagious.
