Me and my gf had gotten scabies from our roomate about 2 months ago. I was using sulfar soap and hot showers not giving it much thought but it slowly got worse until I "snapped" and decided it was time for the bugs to go.

After researching countless treatments I decided to go with Neem oil, Clove oil, Tea tree shampoo and Grapeseed oil as a carrier oil.

I mixed;
1/4 oz Clove oil
1/4 oz Neem oil
6 oz Grapeseep oil

As well as putting neem oil into my bottle of Burts bees body wash.

I shower twice daily using the shower gell with neem oil+Tea tree shampoo then right afterwards I rub the oil mixture from my neck down and putting a little extra on the outbreaks themselves for good measure.

Its been a week and me and my girlfriend have seen significant reduction in all symtpoms. Neither of us have had any new bumbs or outbreaks anywhere else as well.

I'm still a little itchy from time to time, mostly due to the fact the symptons take a few weeks to completely be gone with.

For what its worth I hope this helps anyone else out there.
