Homeopathy Medicine for Scabies
The Sarcoptes scabiei mite, which causes scabies, reproduces on the surface of our skin before burrowing beneath it to lay eggs, which results in the development of an itch-inducing, rashy rash.
Warmth is required for the acarus or the mite to remain mobile and there by pass from one to another. Important sites where these mites burrow are finger webs, elbows, ankles, breasts, and genitals. These mites develop in the stratum corneum of the human skin, where they live and breed, causing this contagious itching disease. Transmission of this infection is by skin to skin contact, with an affected individual, and this generally occurs in bed.
SYMPTOMS OF SCABIES
Some indications that someone has scabies are:
- Itching that is typically severe and worse at night
- tiny skin bumps or blisters that are used as the foundation for thin, erratic burrow tracks
Although almost any part of the body may be affected, scabies is most frequently found in adults and older children, where the burrows or tracks typically appear in folds of skin:
- Between the fingers
- In the armpits
- Around the waist
- on the wrists’ interior surfaces
- On the inner elbows
- the bottoms of the feet
- Around the breasts
- around the genital region of men
- On the buttocks
- On the knees
Common sites of infestation are typically the following in infants and young children:
- Palms of the hands
- Soles of the feet
CAUSES OF SCABIES
The microscopic eight-legged mite that infects people with scabies tunnels just beneath the skin to lay her eggs.
The itching of scabies is caused by the body’s allergic reaction to the mites, their eggs, and their waste. The mite larvae hatch and make their way to the skin’s surface, where they mature and can spread to other areas of the skin or to the skin of other people.
The mites can be spread through direct physical contact and, less frequently, through sharing bedding or clothing with an infected person.
Each species of mites has a distinct host preference and does not live far from that host, having an impact on both animals and humans.
Contact with the animal scabies mite can cause temporary skin reactions in humans, but unlike human scabies mite contact, this source usually does not result in full-blown scabies.
COMPLICATIONS OF SCABIES
Impetigo is a superficial skin infection that is most frequently brought on by staph (staphylococci) bacteria or sporadically by strep (streptococci) bacteria. Vigorous scratching can break skin and allow a secondary bacterial infection, such as impetigo, to occur.
Certain high-risk groups, including the following, are susceptible to crusted scabies, a more severe form of scabies:
- people with immune-suppressive long-term illnesses like HIV or persistent leukemia
- Those who are gravely ill, including those who are hospitalized or receiving care
- Nursing homes for the elderly
Norwegian scabies, also known as crusted scabies, is a very contagious condition that can be difficult to treat and causes the skin to become crusty and scaly.
As opposed to someone with crusted scabies, who may have millions of mites, the average person with scabies has 10 to 15 mites.
PREVENTION FROM SCABIES
Take the following actions to avoid an outbreak again and to stop the mites from infecting others:
- All clothing, towels, and bedding used within three days of starting treatment should be thoroughly cleaned. Use hot, soapy water to wash them, then dry them on a high heat setting. Dry-clean any items you can’t wash at home.
- Starve the mites-Mites become inactive after a few days without food, so think about putting anything that can’t be washed in a sealed plastic bag and storing it in our garage for a few weeks.
