Scabies Symptoms Home Remedy
Need help determing if you have scabies? Scabies symptoms home
remedy is a quick reference checklist to help you figure out if you
might have scabies.
The main symptom of scabies is severe itching! It itches and
it burns, but whatever you do, don't scratch! Some members of
our team have tried wearing gloves and lightly patting (not scratching)
or putting ice cubes over the scabies for temporary relief.
But there are other
things, like small pimples and mosquito bites, that people sometimes
confuse with scabies.
While it can be hard to diagnose, if you suffer from multiple
symptoms in the checklist below, you most
likely have scabies.
Scabies symptoms home remedy checklist:
- Severe itching (that may become more intense while
sleeping... it might feel like things are crawling on or under your
- Pimple-like irritations - small red bumps that look like
tiny bug bites or pimples.
- Usually visible between the
fingers, inside the wrists, elbows, or knees.
- Small “burrows” under the surface of skin (these can be
hard to see with the naked eye so grab that magnifying glass!).
- Sores caused by scratching (try not to scratch too hard
you have scabies, it can quickly spread and even lead to bacterial
infections of the skin).
- Rashes, redness, or irritation on the skin, especially on
warmer parts of the body, like skin folds near the buttocks, groin,
armpits, between fingers/toes, and around breasts.
If you suspect you have scabies and checked off multiple symptoms on
this checklist, try scabies
or call your physician.
Your physician may perform a skin scraping to search for scabies mites
or their eggs. Note that this is not always a 100% accurate
test because scabies mites can sometimes be missed - they are small and
burrow into the skin 2-3cm deep.
