A case of scabies

Scabies is a skin infestation caused by a mite known as the Sarcoptes scabies. Untreated, these microscopic mites can live on your skin for months. They reproduce on the surface of your skin and then burrow into it and lay eggs.

This causes an itchy, red rash to form on the skin. Scabies is a relatively common condition

The critical question is When does the itch worsen and in which areas of the body? Typically the itch starts when an infected person lies down to sleep at night and is worse in the warmer areas of the body such as the groin, armpits, etc Common body sites affected

How scabies is transmitted? Scabies is mainly transmitted by direct skin to skin contact. Young children and older adults are more susceptible to get infected due to a weak immune system. Infants and children are more vulnerable.

Treatment options Conventional treatment of scabies offers a variety of topical ointments such as permethrin, Malathion, crotamiton, and benzyl benzoate. The doctor may prescribe an oral antiparasitic drug. The reason for this article is because I get a lot of patients with Scabies who have been to many doctors and the amazing results I get by using homeopathic medicine for this condition Psorinum is one of the remedies that are best used in the 30c potency. It can take a little while before the effects of one dose are seen. Therefore you should give a maximum of three tablets in one day and wait at least 10 days before repeating it. Even then if there are signs that change is occurring wait even longer before giving another dose. Sulfur can cause aggravations. Do not use any potency above 6c without the advice of a homeopath,

Sulphur 6c can be given up to four times a day but should be reduced as an improvement begins. If there is any sign of aggravation, then stop at once. The above-mentioned remedies taken for 10-15 days effect a cure in most people Everyone in the family should be treated together and the personal clothing and bedclothes should be washed with hot water and dried out in The Sun ☀️ The above-mentioned cream or lotion may be applied every day after bath for a few days for a speedy relief
