Natural cure for scabies? Sinus infections?

Posted by on Mar. 20, 2013 at 7:36 AM

I'm struggling with the fact that my child potentially has scabies. I know the doctor is going to prescribe a medicinal cream and I'm hesitant to use that if there is something natural I can use. We both are suffering from sinus infections as well and need some relief! Any advice?

i dont know if theres a natural way to kill the bugs actually still in your skin but i know the ones living in bedding ect if you bag everything up and throw them out in the cold it will kill them

I would try thieves oil. I'd have to do a little research, but I think that would definitely help. Sinuses I would use a netti pot and diffuse thieves.

We don't know for sure yet that he has it, I'm really hoping its something else...but it looks just like it. I haven't told him what I think it might be because he will be so grossed out.

What do you use to diffuse?

You can steam on the stove, but a diffuser works great. I got two from Amazon. I would recommend getting one since they don't use heat. Heat alters the chemistry of the oil.

Thanks so much! I've heard that using thieves can create a calming environment as well. I will be using this.
