Strengthening Your Natural Immunity for Scabies Treatment

Those with impaired immune systems become easy targets for a thriving scabies population. Individuals with the weakest resistance get the worst cases of scabies, developing Norwegian/crusted scabies. This condition means the mites have multiplied into the hundreds of thousands, or even millions. Yuck.

If you want to fight scabies with your immune system then this is the post for you. I don’t personally think it is the best approach, but power to you. Here’s the tips to do it right by strongly improving your immune response.

1) Get sufficient sleep and relaxation.

A stressed out, overworked and?under-slept?body is a perfect environment for scabies to thrive. Your immune system works its best when you are well rested and have minimal tension and friction in your life.?Sleep a lot. In a pitch dark room, sans electronics, with earplugs even. You need solid blocks of sleep to produce HGH, which is how the body heals itself.?Go to bed an hour earlier at night. Make a ritual out of it. Try to take on less?responsibilities?from work while you go through this. Take time off of work, if it is within your means.

2) Supplement your immune system.

You can ingest immune tonics to boost your bodies response and essential oils that travel to the skin and?cause extreme irritation to the mites. Listed below are great supplements that boost your immune response and it’s production of antibodies.

Nature’s Way System Well: Ultimate Immunity

SystemWell is the most powerful and broadly approaching immune booster out there.?SystemWell is the multi-system defense formula for seven essential aspects of healthy immunity. 1) Epidermal 2) Respiratory 3) Digestive 4) Systemic 5) Circulatory 6) Cellular 7) Lymphatic.

Oregano oil

Oregano oil provides many internal treatment benefits. It has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-allergen, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities. ?When purchasing oregano oil you want to be sure it contains the active compound?Carvacrol. It should read in the range?70-80%. When I was taking it I could smell it on my skin. It no doubt agitated the mites.?Here is a good buying option.


Turmeric is an ancient health booster. It boasts many healing and restorative properties – aiding the immune system and skin health – along with many other benefits; too many to list here. But I’ll link you to some pages that explain all of the life improving characteristics of this herb.

A long renowned immune booster, Echinacea is an advisable supplement to give your system an added boost.?Nature’s Way?offers a very good deal – working out to just 4 cents per pill.

3) Move your body and relax your mind.

Over thinking causes stress. Not enough physical movement causes stagnation.

I know it can be super stressful to think about your scabies infestation. There is a lot of discomfort and worry. I know I was always fearful of spreading the mites, and always wondering where I got them from in the first place.

A good solution to this is to keep your mind occupied by keeping yourself active. Go running, go for a hike, walk the dog, lift some weights. These are all healthy for your body and immune system and by keeping you moving lessen the chance that you will fall into a thinking rut.

**NOTE** These immune boosters will NOT cure you of scabies on their own. It is HIGHLY advisable that your main treatment be Ivermectin and Permethrin.?

A strong immune system cannot kill off scabies infestations on its own. While you can greatly reduce the spread of mites and disable some from calling your body home, there is a reason why your bodies defenses alone will not work.

Scabies can secrete enzymes which will effectively block attacks from you’re immune system. Think of it like a protective barrier. They create a “shell” around them which cannot be penetrated by the immune system killer cells.

So that sucks. But if you want to learn about how to completely kill of a scabies infection then check out my guide to eradicating scabies.

  1. How long does it last and how long should you keep family members away?

  2. I and three drs. think I have scabies and have been treated for it with BactrimDS, 20 das., Cephalixn 10 da. treatment and premethrin cream, 2 treatments and I now am going to a dermatologist because I still have the scabies if in fact this is what I had and was treated for. I am going crazy but not with the common itching caused from scabies its from not knowing and since I don’t go out much I do not have a clue where or when I got them. Please suggrstions?

  3. I have crusted scabies after December 7th ear surgery. Just like left ear but few days later. Major allergies symptoms, high heart and BP extreme thirst but no rash till like 3 days later and at surgery ear and all over. Brown crusted crystal no itch first 2 breakouts. Had to find out on my own the type of scabies I have. Surgeon knew as soon as I reported event. Well of course peremithin on its own didn’t work and when begged for not two sessions of ivermectin last longer and almost killed me. On my own. Well been taking purely holistic parasite herb complex with diet of high fiber eating onions and garlic. Also essential oils neem and Clover bud and better now than with other treatments. Now 8th breakout but no signs of new live to be mites.

  4. Have been taking ivermectin and using permethrin for over a year. I have white colored skin thickening on face, calf, tops of feet, hands, palms, buttocks, ears, hairline, and scalp. At first I was able to scrub the skin thickening off using a Korean washcloth after soaking in the tub for an hour but now it has gotten worse. I asked my dermatologist to prescribe salicylic acid shampoo and lotion to use as a ketolytic agent. These crusted scabies seem to have become resistant to permethrin. I am trying 25% Benzyl Benzoate.

    They are in my sinus for the last year and also my lips. Nothing works. I now have skin thickening under and around my nose. My lips are covered with whitish grey skin thickening too. My eyelids are covered also.

    My immune system does not fight them off at all. What could I take orally to treat them systemically? No topical penetrates the skin thickening which is why they make it.

    I read the crusted scabies makes a chemical that tells all your cells to not fight them. It said they form a casing around themselves when they do this. How can you turn your cells back on to fight them?
