I have been struggling with treating these little devils for the last few months. I was a full time Lyft driver and I believe one of my passengers passed them along to me. It was so bad that I felt that I had to stay away from people completely. What I found that works for me is castile soap with a few drops of tea tree oil added. I chew a whole clove of garlic every day. I use coconut oil with a few drops of TTO on my skin and witch hazel with TTO on my face after bathing. I am reducing stress and eating healthier, no liquor drinking or cigarette smoking.
I clean excessively with bleach everywhere at least twice a day, drying sheets and clothes often. I detail my car twice a week while spraying the interior down with homemade TTO spray.
I am mostly free of the mites after several weeks with this routine. You have to be aggressive and excessive but I promise you, it will work.

There is no need for all the cleaning for a mite infection. Read the Grow Youthful web page on mites and the paragraph on mite transmission. No need to clean house, car etc.

I contracted scabies 4 years ago. I tried EVERYTHING....permethrin, bleach baths, derbac m, all kinds of essential oils, humaworm, horse paste - an entire tube each time! ....NOTHING would get rid of them. I started taking baths with pool salt daily. This helped bring many of the deeply embedded mites to the surface, but did not rid me of them. My body is full of scars now from the itching and the bumps. It is awful. Finally, I decided to try eating raw garlic. I started just 2 nights ago. I took 3 cloves that night and I truly believe it is helping. Most things Ive tried, but the end of the following day, I can feel the critters all hatching again and crawling all over. Tonight is the 3rd night and I barely feel a thing. Ive taken 4 cloves tonight. Im going to continue this for the next month, until I know they are gone. I have a very strong feeling they will be. I wish Id tried this years ago.

After the prescription cream failed twice for my scabies and essential oils only kept it under control, I started mincing a good sized clove of garlic into my detox drink first thing in the morning. Water, apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, turmeric and ginger. Within two weeks, no new scabies bumps. I believe I am cured from this ailment.
