Scabies and Lice
Lice are also a parasite that generally is found in the hair. There are three types of lice:
- Head lice
- Body lice
- Pubic lice
Cause of Lice and Scabies
Lice can be caused by a number of things. Some of the most common causes are:
- Head to head contact
- Sharing personal items such as combs, hats, scarves, headphones
- Home furnishings
Scabies is also generally transmitted by skin-to-skin contact. However, you can contract scabies from objects the parasite has come in contact with. Scabies can live without a host for up to 36 hours so the contact doesn't have to be as immediate as with lice. The mites that cause scabies can also carry disease, so be sure to identify the issue as soon as it arises.
Both lice and scabies produce a great deal of itching. Scabies also produces a rash. If you suspect that you have either condition, it is best to control the problem quickly before it is spread to others.
Since the parasite that causes scabies burrows into outer layers of the skin, an external approach to healing is primary and necessary whereas internal cleansing is secondary. Scabies and Lice both affect the external skin and are considered skin conditions.
It may be beneficial to perform a Sea Salt Soak daily. Full instructions for this can be found in an article titled Sea Salt Soak in our articles section on our website.
Other solutions that can assist the skin in healing are:
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Tea Tree oil
