Scabies are a skin parasite known to humans for over 2,500 years. Its existence has been documented throughout history, with stories of mysterious skin mites spanning centuries and continents. It was not until 1687, when Giovan Cosimo Bonomo and Giacinto Cestoni isolated a human skin mite, that it was officially identified and given the name Sarcoptes scabiei, more commonly known as scabies. Despite its long history, the affliction of scabies did not receive an official name until much later.
Historically, Scabies, a common parasite, has plagued royalty and peasants alike, leaving its mark from Aristotle to ancient Arabia. Evidence outlined in the International Journal of Dermatology suggests that even the great Napoleon may have suffered from a lifelong case of Scabies. Classified as an arachnid due to its eight legs and round body measuring less than 0.5 millimeters, these highly adaptable mites can thrive in various conditions if they have a human host to feed off.
It is essential to know that adult mites can survive by creating tunnels in the top layer of your skin. Female Scabies lay their eggs within these tunnels under your skin and can live for up to a month. These eggs typically hatch within three to four days, and the newly hatched larvae create new burrows closer to your skin's surface.
After hatching, Scabies reach adulthood in just four days. They can either continue their life cycle in their current host or move on to infect a new one. The itching caused by Scabies results from leftover fecal matter, secretions, and skin that the mites leave behind while burrowing under the skin.
If Scabies mites are not treated, they will reproduce by laying eggs and larvae, eventually developing into adult nymphs. This cycle will persist as they create new burrows under the skin. Therefore, following a treatment protocol to eliminate the Scabies mite permanently is crucial.

What Are Scabies?
Scabies is a skin infestation caused by the human itch mite. This tiny mite burrows into the top layer of the skin, where it resides and lays its eggs.
How Did I Get Scabies?
Scabies are usually spread by direct, prolonged, skin-to-skin contact with someone with scabies. Contact generally must be extended; a quick handshake or hug usually will not spread scabies. Scabies is distributed easily to partners and household members.
Scabies is also spread indirectly by sharing articles such as clothing, towels, or bedding used by an infected person.
Scabies can be found worldwide and affects people of all races and social classes. Having scabies does not indicate someone's cleanliness.
What Are The Signs And Symptoms Of A Scabies Infestation?
The most common signs and symptoms of scabies are intense itchings (especially at night) and a pimple-like itchy rash. The itching and rash each may affect much of the body or be limited to common sites such as:
Webbing Between The Fingers
Waist / Belt-line
The rash also can include tiny blisters and scales. Scratching the rash can cause skin sores; sometimes, these sores become infected by bacteria.
Tiny burrows are sometimes seen on the skin; the female scabies mite tunneling causes these just beneath the skin's surface. These burrows appear as little raised and crooked grayish-white or skin-colored lines on the skin surface. They are often found in the webbing between the fingers; skin folds on the wrist, elbow, or knee, and genitalia or shoulder blades.
The head, face, neck, palms, and soles are often involved in infants and young children, but usually, not adults and older children.
Persons with crusted scabies may not show the usual signs and symptoms of scabies, such as the characteristic rash or itching.
What Are Crusted (Norwegian) Scabies?
Crusted scabies is a severe form of scabies that can occur in some immunocompromised (with a weak immune system), elderly, disabled, or debilitated. It is also called Norwegian scabies.
Persons with crusted scabies have thick skin crusts containing large numbers of scabies mites and eggs. This person is very contagious to other people and can spread the infestation quickly through direct skin-to-skin contact and by contaminated items such as their clothing, bedding, and furniture.
Someone with crusted scabies may not show the usual signs and symptoms of scabies, such as the characteristic rash or itching. Once the infestation is discovered, they should receive quick and aggressive medical treatment for their infestation to prevent outbreaks of scabies.
How Soon After Infestation Do Symptoms Of Scabies Begin?
It can take 4 to 8 weeks for symptoms of Scabies to develop in someone who has never had it before. However, it's crucial to remember that an infected person can still spread scabies during this incubation period, even if they are not showing any symptoms yet.
On the other hand, individuals with Scabies tend to experience symptoms much sooner, typically within 1 to 4 days after exposure.
Can Scabies Be Treated?
Many products are available in the market that claims to kill Scabies and remove them from the body. However, not all of these products have been substantiated, so it is crucial to research before selecting a product for yourself and your loved ones.
Naturasil Scabies Treatment Packs offer a natural alternative to treating Scabies without resorting to harmful chemicals. Our system is designed to eliminate infestations at different stages and alleviate the pain caused by Scabies mites during an infestation.
Scabicides prescribed by a doctor to treat Scabies are specifically designed to kill Scabies mites, and some also destroy their eggs. However, some of these Scabicides contain harmful chemicals that can be dangerous. It is essential to use these products cautiously and follow the instructions carefully. Misuse of these products can cause severe damage to the body.
Retreatment may be required with any treatment plan if itching persists for more than 2-4 weeks after treatment or if new burrows or rashes continue to appear.
Never use a Scabicide intended for veterinary or agricultural purposes to treat humans!
How Long Can Scabies Mites Live?
Scabies mites can live on a person for 1-2 months. However, when off a person, they typically do not survive for more than 48-72 hours.
How Can I Remove Scabies Mites From My House Or Carpet?
It is important to note that Scabies mites cannot survive more than 2-3 days away from human skin. Therefore, it is crucial to carefully vacuum carpets and furniture to remove any dead mites, eggs, and excrement that may still be present in the fabrics. Additionally, frequently touched surfaces such as countertops should be wiped down with disinfectant.
For effective deep cleaning and disinfecting of your home, we recommend using our BenzaRid Disinfectant, which comes in larger packs, including the Naturasil Scabies Treatment Family Pack and Naturasil Scabies Treatment Super Pack. To decontaminate bedding, clothing, and towels used by someone with Scabies, it is best to machine-wash them in hot water and dry using the hot cycle or take them to a dry-cleaning service. We also suggest using our ElimiMite Natural Enzyme Concentrate in your wash to lift the dead mites, eggs, and excrement from all your washable items.
Removing items from any body contact for at least 72 hours is recommended for articles that cannot be washed or dry-cleaned. Scabies mites will die if exposed to a temperature of 50°C (122°F) for 10 minutes, so putting the item in direct sunlight would also help kill the mites.
If someone has crusted Scabies, they are considered highly infectious. Therefore, it is advised to carefully vacuum furniture and carpets in rooms used by these persons. However, fumigation of living areas is unnecessary.
How Can I Remove Scabies Mites From My Clothes?
Scabies mites can't survive for more than 2-3 days off human skin. Items used by someone with Scabies should be decontaminated by machine-washing in hot water or taking them to a dry cleaner.
Use ElimiMite natural enzyme concentrate in your wash to remove dead mites, eggs, and excrement. Items that can't be washed should be removed from body contact for 72 hours to decontaminate.
Did I Get Scabies From My Pet? Can I Give It To My Pet?
No, to both questions.
Animals cannot spread human scabies. However, pets can be affected by a distinct type of Scabies mite that does not survive or reproduce in humans but can cause "mange" in animals. If a person comes into close contact with an animal with "mange," the animal mite can penetrate the skin and lead to temporary itching and irritation. Nevertheless, the animal mite cannot reproduce in humans and will die within a few days.
Even though the person does not need treatment, it is crucial to treat the animal. The animal's mites can continue to burrow into the person's skin and cause symptoms until the animal is successfully treated. We suggest using Naturasil Pet Mange to help cure your pet's mange and eliminate their infestation.
