So I can say with 100 percent confidence that tea tree oil works well as far as getting the scabies to the surface. However I would not go far enough to say it will cure you or even kill the mites on your hand. But what I will say is this; using the combination of tea tree oil lotion and permethrin, and proactively cleaning your environment should give you your best chance at ridding your scabies infestation. About a half hour earlier my hands were burning so I got my tea tree oil lotion and scrubbed my hands with it. Not more than 5 seconds after going through this process, black specks surfaced. In addition, I let the black specks alone and right before my eyes I saw one dig back into my epidermis. Which is why I feel this won't be an effective method of treatment by itself because it doesn't directly kill the scabies. Although I will say this that a majority of the black specks lifted are likely dead scabies mites and removing these from your skin may decrease the allergic reaction developed from the mites. Just a further note, these black specks I'm referring to are smaller than a grain of pepper just so you can get an image in case you see similar specks on your hands. Hope this helps

That's interesting. I experienced the same thing with the TTO! It totally freaked me out! But my dermatologist says I'm in post-scabies, so they must be dead.

My baby (5months old) and I are battling this hideous thing (unofficialy diagnosed scabies) and I am constantly picking these black specks off him and me. Yesterday I caught one behind his ear near a small dot of blood! Wtf! I'm so over it. We have treated 5 times now over 8 weeks. They are so small and wish I could see what they are up close. Scabies mites are not meant to be black?? I showed my doctor one and he just said its dust. It's not friggin dust. Why are doctors so misinformed about scabies and its treatment. It's hell on earth......
