Using Epsom Salt Baths for Scabies
Symptoms of scabies such as itching are often the most annoying that come with scabies as your skin can continue being itchy even after scabies treatments. The use of epsom salts which are bath salts have been used for years to help with both post scabies and itchy irritated skin. Epsom salts can not kill an entire scabies infection but they do contain sulfates which could potentially help suffocate any nymphs or kill some scabies eggs near the skin.

Epsom salts are not a scabies killer but will help heal your skin as it is very damaged from both the scabies mites and the scabies treatments, they will also help your skin surface the dead scabies mites and their fecal matter. The itching that happens in post scabies is regular allergy itching your skin experiences from the dead scabies and their debris under your skin and until your skin surfaces it you will continue to itch. So taking baths with epsom salts is highly recommended in post scabies.

scabies treatment Tips

Take warm epsom salt baths in the evening for 30 minutes with a full cup of epsom salts.

Use scabies sulfur creams and soaps.

Never wear same clothing more than 24 hours.

Clean your environment with Benzarid scabies sprays.

Avoid contact with others until your in the clear.

Place items unused in sealed containers or bags.

Dry clothing for an extra 20 minutes to ensure it kills scabies.

Pay attention to areas with thick skin or skin folds.

Dry clean mattress or use Mitacide sprays on it.

Clean up your diet and stay away from sugars

Epsom salts can help you get some much needed rest and also help in healing your skin as it is likely damaged and very dry from the scabies treatments and scabies mites. Having a bath during the evening hours for 30minutes before bed can mask the itching symptoms of scabies during the night which will allow you to get some rest without waking up scratching yourself.
