What does Hand Sanitizer Do to Scabies?

Becoming Scabies Educated

Hand Sanitizer stops the itch completely for me (for only a while??)... But does it actually kill them? If not, why do people recommend alcohol for cleaning the plastic, etc we've covered our mattresses with? Furthermore, I'm thinking that even if it kills them, on the skin it kills all your natural defenses at the same time... Anyone knowledgeable re: this? Thanks!!
