Tell me who use Neem and tea tree oil and take get rid off from scabies.Thats true or Falls. I am in tension......
I bought a Neem oil soap (20% neem oil) and bottle of organic 100% tea tree oil. I've been showering with the soap and also standing in the shower covered with it for 10-15 mins once a day. I then cover myself with lotion (just some light smelling generic lotion I had around) that I've mixed with the tea tree oil. I also spot treat with the lotion.

I've been doing this for 4 nights going into my 5th night and I think I am cured. I still itch in a normal way from maybe dry winter skin or residue but I don't feel a crawly consistently itchy sensation anymore. This is especially at night. I think I'm still just a little paranoid but I am hopeful that a full week of this and I will be 100%.

A given to all of this is constant and diligent cleanliness - I don't wear anything twice and I wash wash wash laundry. If I can't wash something, I wait at least a week, but even then no because I end up feeling itchy anyway from residue, paranoia, or resilient bugs. I will continue the soap and tea tree oil regime until I run out!

i picked up scabies maybe a month ago from a hotel room, had NO idea what it was for the first week and a half the rash broke. i was HORRIFIED. i cleaned my entire house, washed everything in bleach, i treated ONCE with lindane, and was horrified that within a week i had NEW bumps and i could STILL FEEL the crawling at night, the itching. UGH this is a true nightmare. anyway, about two days ago i started using perm 5% i treated once, recleaned EVERYTHING and sprayed a bedding spray on everything. then i went out and got some sulfur ointment (not sure what percentage but i think its a good one, Ole South Sulfur Ointment, probably only available in alabama, where i am) and then i got some 100% pharm grade tea tree oil, i treated once yesterday rubbed down my WHOLE body in the sulfur ointment, then later before i went to sleep rubbed in tea tree oil ALL OVER my body, this stuff was relatively inexpensive where i got it, at the town pharmacy. i think i spent maybe $13 in all for bedding spray, tea tree oil, and the sulfur ointment. anyway, last night was one of the first ITCH FREE nights ive had in SO long, tho i still didnt sleep so well simply out of the paranoia that having this bug on me has caused. but its working, and its only been ONE DAY. i took a shower this morning, rubbed more sulfur ointment all over my body, and i just treated myself with more tea tree oil (rubbed it on, straight out of the bottle, all over) i also rub it onto my bedding and clothing, at night. havent felt any crawlies since last night, MAYBE one or two? havent noticed any new bites either. i think i have discovered a REAL REMEDY. that being said, i wouldnt skip out on the perm cream either. im pretty sure that killed all the eggs on my body, this herbal/natural stuff is doing some SERIOUS maintenance though, i'm gonna treat for a month, and call it a cure!!

If you have only had ONE itch free night, you really shouldn't come on here and say how great things are working. Tea Tree Oil has analgesic properties so your skin will feel better for a while. That doesn't mean it had killed any of the scabies. Also, wait a few days and I am sure you will be discouraged when you get new burrows. There is no miracle one night cure, it takes a lot of time and diligence.

Also, DO NOT rub pure tea tree oil on your skin. If you had pure tea tree oil, rubbing it on your skin would severely dry it out, and likely cause redness, irritation, and blisters. They recommend mixing it with Coconut Oil or Baby Oil, but on it's own it is very potent and can be dangerous. If you rubbed it all over your body with no ill effects, you do not have pure tea tree oil. It may be '100% pharm grade' but is a very small amount mixed in a solution. Just want to reiterate to people DO NOT PUT TEA TREE OIL DIRECTLY ON YOUR SKIN.

Hello everyone! I got scabies from some clothes I bought at Goodwill. This is the worst thing I could ever have imagined. I've tried permethrin and within a few days it's back. Now the skin on my hands is cracking and bleeding. I just went out and bought some neem oil and tea tree oil. I'm going to give that a try for the next few days, it can't get any worse! I wake up in the middle of the night cying and scratching until I bleed and now it's gone from itching to an intense pain. I feel like my hand is being held over an open flame continuosly. I just used the oil in the store and it seems like it's calmed down a little bit.I will post again and let you all know if it helps any.

These Little buggers make me mad,I want to shrink down to there size get under my skin and kick their Butts. I treated with Permethrin Yesterday and don't feel any different today. What is really annoying is i went to the doctor the day after my first symptoms and asked her if it could be scabies, she said no it was probably an allergy to the penicillin i had been taking.I went back to the doctor yesterday after i had found one of the bugs to confirm it was scabies.He confirmed, i bought the cream and today i am still itching and getting the same red swollen lines where i assume they are burrowing.At first i thought the red lines were from scratching but then i seen red lines on my back in an area i cant reach to itch. Not sure what my next step is

The most irritating thing ie worse than this darned infection, is that we picked it up in a care facility where elderly people reside. The matron and staff are claiming that we are wrongfully blaming a particular person for the continuous outbreaks.Unfortunately the continued blame on exzema as being the the "favoured" scapegoat, is narrow minded as those in authority are concerned what the "infecter's" family are going to say. Have read that a person was misdiagnosed for 3 years. ie diagnosed with exzema rather than with scabies. Terrible to be oblivious to a serious and uncomfortable problem. I'm angry as I contracted it approximately 15 years ago as a result of the work I did, now I get it through a mere visit and it is bad. I am also allergic to most of the prescribed medications being an asthmatic and hyper allergic to most medications.

Neem oil works. My husband, my daughter and I all had scabies. We did't use the pesticide creams the doctors prescribed we went straight to the neem oil. i put it in a coconut/shea butter lotion that we put on every day and i also mixed it with our regular body washes/shampoos. it will only be effective if it is used EVERYDAY for atleast a month and you also have to make sure everything in your house is treated as well. the carpets have to be vaccumed at least twice a week and all bedding needs to be washed twice a week and in the dryer for 30 minutes every night on high heat. same goes with clothing. 20 minutes in the dryer on high heat before its worn. i know it sounds like a lot of work. believe it it is. but its the only way we found that worked. Neem oil does not kill scabies. It keeps them from reproducing so they die off. it is alot of work but i believe its the safest cure for children as well as for elderly people. GOOD LUCK!

Ive been using neem oil and tea tree oil for, eh id say about 24 hours. From the neck down ALL OVER applying neem first cause it smells like shit and then tea tree over it, it has a minty smell.
Well for the past (about) 23 hours i have felt NO itch!!
You can get both of these products from your local herb shop. I got mine for about $10 each.
I have tried EVERYTHING! even ordered products specifically for scabies, and that shit did NOT work.
If this doesn't work... FUCK IT! im gonna just "de-skin" myself.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL

I tried tea tree first with no success. I then tried to order from a scabbies killer website. The stuff was tea tree, neem oil, karanja oil, eucalyptus oil, Lavender oil, Rosemary oil.

The kit had enzymes, for bathing and washing laundry as well as extra neem, and diatomacious earth both topical and for arround the house. Also sulfur soap.

It was supposedly guaranteed to work.

It was also very expensive.
I really tried the natural oil route.

Firstly, I had a substantial reaction to the neem oil, but kept up the treatments for 2 to 3 months. Even shaved my head to make treatments easier.

I stunk like hell, my whole house stunk, I pretty much ruined my couch. Diatomacious earth every where. Most horrible treatment I can imagine.

It seemed to work at first like every treatment does, but eventually I came to the conclusion that I was only spreading the scabbies to new areas on my body. It failed and after they were only worse.

My honest opinion, try tea tree, maybe it will work for you, but I believe that scabbies do not like the taste of these oils but they do not kill them.

So did you apply the neem oil to you entire body or just where the outbreak was?

I got neem oil to treat scabies on my son, how do I use it? Do I just rub it on him? and if so how long or does it just stay on him?
