Scabies Home Remedies

Here are a few home remedies for scabies that you may want to try when treating yourself or your children.

  • Fresh juice of apricot leaves should be extracted and applied over the infected area. It has beneficial results in the treatment of scabies.
  • Make a neem leaf paste with fresh or dried neem leaves and an equal quantity of turmeric powder mixed with mustard oil. This should be applied on the body and left for an hour or so. Then the person should bath. Repeat for 7- 10 days till all lesions have healed.
    (Neem is a large semi-evergreen tree of the East Indies; trunk exudes a tenacious gum; bitter bark used as a tonic; seeds yield an aromatic oil; sometimes placed in genus Melia)
  • The dried bark of a peepul tree can be powdered fine, strained through a fine sieve and used as a dusting powder on lesions of scabies.
  • Extract the juice from 400 - 500 gm of drumstick leaves. Mix with an equal amount of sesame seed oil, and boil till the water dries up. Cool and store. Apply daily over the infected parts. Both have strong anti-microbial properties.

Tips for Scabies

  • If you want to attack the scabies internally, adults can take 2 or 3 Neem leaf capsules daily for 2 weeks to boost their immune system and increase blood circulation. Continue to take 1 to 2 capsules 3 to 4 weeks after symptoms are gone.
  • It is also important to eliminate all possible sources of re-infestation. This is most important during the first 7-10 days of treatment so remember to wash all bedding and clothing in hot water (preferably after the clothes have been soaked in boiled neem water) and dry them in a hot dryer.
