Does coconut oil help get rid of scabies?


There is no scientific evidence to support the claim that coconut oil can effectively get rid of scabies. Scabies is a highly contagious skin condition caused by a microscopic mite that burrows into the skin and causes intense itching and rash.

The treatment for scabies usually involves topical medications prescribed by a doctor, such as permethrin cream or sulfur ointment. These medications are specifically designed to kill the scabies mites and their eggs.

While coconut oil may have some beneficial properties for the skin, such as moisturizing and reducing inflammation, it is not an effective treatment for scabies. It is important to seek medical advice and follow the recommended treatment plan if you suspect you have scabies.
