The Scabies itch Guidebook:
- Section #1: 10 Anti-itch remedies for scabies
- Section #2: Scabies: Three reasons to avoid scratching the itch
- Section #3: A method to allow scratching but avoid spreading the mites.
So if you really just?can’t?find a way to control yourself and stop scratching, here is a way to scratch more safely. And by safely I mean limiting the amount of scabies mites you are spreading across your body and in your environment.
Coat your hands (especially under your nails) in essential oils such as?clove?or?tea tree?oil?before you go to bed, or anytime you have the desire to scratch. Scratch at your leisure and remember keep your fingers oiled up.
This way any scratching will potentially kill mites instead of providing a safe ride for them to other parts of the body.
It will still not be good for your skin, but this method eliminates the potential for spreading the mites further around your body/environment.
