Hello. Thank you for posting.

Scabies is a highly infectious skin condition caused by a little bug called Sarcoptes scabiei. The bug burrows into the skin, which leads to serious itching in the affected area.

The most widely recognized signs of the condition include itching that is normally most serious at night time, sporadic burrow tracks or lines of blisters on the skin.

According to Natural Scabies Relief, using apple cider vinegar may help. Vinegar is known to have a high PH which, when used on the skin, causes the bugs to die.

In a bowl, blend a balance of water and vinegar
Use a cotton ball to apply the solution on the infected skin
Leave it on the skin for 15 minutes, then wash off with warm water
Do this up to three times a day to get rid of the infestation.
