Sleepless nights can be one of the worst symptoms of Scabies
If having Scabies isn’t already stressful enough – then add on weeks of ruined sleep schedules.
With such a ridiculous amount of missed Zzz’s you’ll likely be in a huge pit of despair. I know the feeling very well.
How to prevent losing sleep from Scabies
While it isn’t possible to entirely get rid of the itch associated with the mites, there are some things you can do.
These solutions include being very proactive about reducing your bodies allergic reaction which causes the itch, as well as keeping your skin cool and healthy.
Learn about methods for counteracting the itch
In my post 10 Anti-Itch Remedies For Scabies?I’ve laid out a thorough list of effective ways to soothe your skin and reduce internal reactions involving your bodies histamine response (which is what leads you to feel itchy).
If you follow all of those tips there is a good chance you’ll be able to diminish some of the intensity of your itch and sleep scratch free through the night.
But this isn’t always the case – a lot of people have very strong reactions to scabies mites, and need?additionally help if they don’t want to go mad from sleep deprivation.
Invest in a healthy sleep aid
I stand by the benefits of melatonin and magnesium for sleep, and a great natural sleep aid by Prime Choices has a good dosage of both, as well as some other sleep promoters like valarian root, Vitamin B6 & Chamomile
I hope this post helped you find ways to get a good sleep during your infestation. Though it isn’t the most important thing in dealing with scabies (having the right treatment regimen is) having good rest gives you some peace of mind that is so easily lost while you are fighting these horrendous mites.
