  • From what I found, the scabies that live on animals cannot reproduce on humans, and will die on their own in a few days. Meanwhile, treatment of the itching with clamine lotion, oatmeal, or hydrocortisone cream should help.

  • i dont know about that, cause my kids do have it and i cant think of where else they could have gotten it from, the hydrocortisone cream doesnt work, i've tried it

  • I wouldn't go natural with this one. I'd use the chemicals! As bad as chemicals are, I think they beat bugs tunnelling through your kids body.  That's just me though.  Honestly, good luck!!!
