How do you get Scabies?
Scabies is transmitted by prolonged skin to skin contact with someone and/or by sharing a space with someone who has it. Scabies is more commonly spread in crowded places, like dorms and nursing homes, but with scabies on the rise, it’s becoming more common in households. Most people who have contracted scabies don’t even realize they have it, and spread it to others unknowingly before it is diagnosed. Scabies can mimic other itchy bumps such as poison ivy, chiggers, and mosquito bites, but scabies bumps don’t go away on their own, and actually get worse over time. I suggest getting a Doctors diagnoses if this is the case. The first time you get scabies, it may be several weeks before you have itching and skin sores, but once you have had it, the symptoms will probably start in just a day or two if contracted again.
You should not be ashamed if you have contracted scabies, it’s just as easy to get as lice. Many people see scabies as a condition brought about by poor living conditions, but this is not true. Just like lice, Scabies can be contracted by all social classes and cleanliness does not make a difference. All it takes to contract scabies is prolonged human contact.
Signs of Scabies:
*Red itchy bumps that are raised and won’t go away. The itch is usually very intense and even more so at night. Scabies usually start as just a few bumps and get worse over time.
*Tiny wavy lines where the mites have burrowed (not always visible)
*Bumps are more common on the inner wrists, and between the fingers and toes, but can be on the abdomen, legs, arms, and feet. Scabies don’t usually get on the face, head or back.
*More than one person in a household coming down with itchy bumps over time.
*Finding yourself scratching all the time, and obsessing about it.

Our StoryOur family was inflicted with Scabies three years ago, not knowing for months what it was. When we finally discovered that it was scabies, we knew we were dealing with a real problem. We wanted to find a natural cure for Scabies without using prescription pesticides like Permethrin and Lindane, which are extremely harsh on your skin and can be very dangerous to use. It’s also known that Scabies are becoming resistant to these pesticides and that they don’t always work! Overwhelmed from all the crazy treatments and unheard of cleaning practices we read about and some even tried, we finally found a miracle in essential oils and their amazing qualities. Repair the Bare feels so great on the skin and smells so wonderful that you will want to use our oil long after the scabies are gone! With so many others also loving our oil blend, we knew that we had to share it with everyone and we strive to make our oil affordable and offer a low flat rate shipping fee. Repair the Bare has all the the oils you need to treat scabies in one large 16oz bottle. If you were to purchase all of the combined oils in Repair the Bare separately you would pay well over a hundred dollars, not to mention some of these oils are hard to find. We are also very discrete with our product, so no one will know if you are using it for Scabies if that is a problem for you.
