Scabies is a skin infection caused by mites, and is commonly seen in areas between the toes and fingers, armpits, around the wrist, beltline, folds of the elbows, buttocks, abdomen, nipples, genitalia and the groin. Small children and babies may get it on the scalp, soles of the feet and on the face.

It is contagious and can spread from one person to another. People living with the infected person need to be treated. All infected people should be treated at the same time to prevent reinfestation of this skin condition.

2. Neem oil is used in Ayurveda for hundreds of years as a natural treatment for scabies. It is helpful in stopping the breeding of the parasites inside the skin. It heals lesions caused by scratching, soothes the pain and itching sensation.
