The easily communicated skin disease of scabies is passed virally through personal contact with someone who has the condition or with items they've handled. Blistering, rashes and itchy skin are among the most common symptoms of scabies. The harm to personal appearance and the irritation scabies causes are real concerns, although thankfully it poses no long-term health risks if treated effectively. It is unrealistic to expect a complete cure without using conventional medicines, but home remedies for scabies can help speed up the healing process and could eliminate some of the undesirable side effects.

1. Know your Onions

Onions are a popular ingredient in salads and cooked dishes, but they also contain substances with medicinal properties. In particular, onions are rich in quercetin and organosulfur, which help the skin heal after an outbreak of scabies. Apply small pieces of onion mixed with salt to infected skin areas a couple of times each day.
