Dr. Scabies is one of powerful treatments for scabies. It not only kills the mites, but also promotes healing. Unlike other OTC creams, it doesn’t irritate the skin as it is made with the handpicked botanical extracts.
And here we will review some key ingredients of Dr. Scabies to explain why it’s so effective for scabies treatment.
Tea Tree Oil:
Tea tree oil is one of the main ingredients of Dr. Scabies. Tea tree oil is known for its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. The oil is derived from the distillation of leaves from the narrow leaf tea tree plant generally found in Australia. According to one research, its antiseptic action can be more powerful than carbolic acid. Tea tree oil is effective for several skin conditions including scabies. It not only kills the mites, but also soothes itching, burrows and rashes.
Here are some scientific studies showing the efficiency of the cream.
- A study published in Pub Med suggests that tea tree oil can prevent human and animal infestations.
- It has also been found that tea tree oil can eliminate head lice within an hour and remove the eggs within five days. The results show that tea tree oil can prevent parasitic infections, including scabies.
- A recent experiment showed that 5 percent of tea tree oil solution can kill the mites taken from human respondents.
Sulfur is loaded with antibacterial and antifungal properties. It has been used to treat various skin conditions like rosacea, acne, eczema, scabies and warts for ages. Sulfur treatments are usually applied overnight for 3 to 6 nights for scabies treatment. This is why Dr. Scabies includes sulfur for the treatment of scabies.
Soy and Jojoba Oils:
These oils are included in the cream to promote skin healing while soothing inflammation. These oils are powerful antioxidant as they are rich in vitamin E. They also prevent the damaging pollutants from entering the skin pores.
Coconut Oil (Stearic Acid):
Coconut oil is a great moisturizing agent that removes the dryness and flakiness caused by scabies. Plus, it comes with antibacterial properties. It soothes irritating skin and protects against sun damage. And guess what—coconut oil is a common remedy for scabies in India, according to Drs. M. Bhandary’s article published in 1995 in the “Journal of Ethnopharmacology.”
The oil blocks the air holes through which scabies mites may get oxygen, leading to their suffocation.
Chamomile is loaded with antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, making it an effective remedy for scabies. No wonder that Dr. Scabies contains chamomile extracts to speed up your healing from scabies. It has a high content of Azulene, the active organic compound in Chamomile which gives it its deep-blue color. The azulene is not present in the fresh flower but is produced during the distillation process that gives its anti-inflammatory, skin healing properties.
