Neem and Scabies: Some Background

Conventional scabies treatments are toxic and can irritate your skin.
They have to be so harsh to be able to penetrate you skin and kill the mite that causes scabies. Think about it: scabies treatments are essentially pesticides.

Using neem oil is good for your skin.
Neem not only deals with the scabies mites naturally, it also soothes the skin, numbs the pain, relieves the itching, reduces the inflammation and redness, and heals any secondary infection that might have occurred because of scratching and open lesions.

There is another good reason for natural treatment of scabies with neem.
Scabies mites are already resistant to many conventional pesticides. Often enough the medications don't work. But after thousands of years of traditional use, no insects or other pests have become resistant to neem, and scientists don't expect that to happen ever. Neem oil works and will continue to do so.

Let's look a bit closer at the details: what is scabies and how can you use neem oil to treat scabies?
