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.

Turmeric with ginger and garlic made into a paste and scrubbed all over will help, as will clove oil. Remember to stay calm in mind as you have to go through many different stages to get these little buggers under control. I also took turmeric mixed in natural yoghurt to help on the inside. Getting to the beach for a swim or a scrub with sea salt and water also helped me.

I used odorless garlic supplements twice daily. It cured my mite infection. Garlic kills everything.

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.
