Neem Oil on Scabies
I think I have scabies which I didn't treat for like a year. Now I realized what it was. I bought Neem Seed Oil from Indian shops and it says "not for medicinal purposes" which I didn't understand. Maybe they meant not to drink it as a syrup.
I have been applying that for almost 8 days every evening for half an hour all over my body and then I take shower with Neem Soap that I also picked up from the Indian shop.
I felt great a after couple of days. The itch was reduced about 90% and I could sleep better at night. My bites which are all over my legs and shoulder blades seem to be healing.
But since yesterday, after 7 days of straight application, the itch started again, on and off. Does it mean the scabies are dead and that is itching? How long do I have to continue the neem oil application for?
I am planning to continue applying neem oil all over my body for at least 15 days as mentioned by you. I could not find any neem lotion anywhere in Toronto. Therefore I am only using neem oil and neem soap? Is that enough?
Again, why the itch started again? Any ideas?
Thank and best regards,
