Neem Works!

by Brenda
(Ontario , Canada)

My six year old developed itchy bumps on her knees last May. I assumed they were bug bites as we live in Northern Ontario. Come September the bumps and accompanying itch became much worse and could be seen on her elbows, arms and legs. At night she could never sleep through the night.

I heard about Neem oil. I began applying it directly to her bumps each night(the smell is pugnant, but well worth the inconvienience). First the itch went away, one day later; then the redness was visibly gone. By day 6 a definite eradication was evident.

Some secondary infection is still evident (now it's day 7) due to scratching so I will continue to apply neem to the infected area and to the three bumps (whitish heads) that still are on her knee backs. I'm wondering if I can dilute the neem to reduce the smell while the last of the healing takes place? I am very thankful for this website and the information they presented on it.

Brenda, and I am grateful that you took the time to come back here to share your experience!

Sorry that it took me so long to respond, but I've been away for a few weeks. Hope your girl is fine now and that you managed to get rid of the last bumps.

Regarding the secondary infection: yes, you certainly could have used the diluted neem oil or even a product with neem leaf or neem soap. In any way, if you eradicated the mites (not only from the body but also the house to prevent re-infestation) then the body will sooner or later also clean up the infection.
