Despite our best efforts to keep them out, there are household pests living in our homes. Although there may be the occasional spider in the corner of the bathroom, or a few ants on the kitchen floor, most of the time we are able to eradicate the problem quickly and move on. The real problems start when the occasional bug sighting turns into a regular infestation or when pests or insects cause our children to develop health problems. Sometimes the problem starts outside the home and is brought inside by an unaware child. Lice and biting mites are two common examples of this problem.
Anyone that has had to deal with scabies is familiar with biting mites. Scabies is a contagious skin infection in humans and animals that is a result of biting mites. Tiny biting mites burrow under the skin of the host, causing an intense allergic reaction. The reaction manifests itself in a constant itching feeling on the skin. Because the mites prefer skin that is thin and hairless, the problem often concentrates around the crevices of the body below the neck where skin constantly rubs together, such as between fingers and toes, thighs, groin, etc. Symptoms of biting mites include intense itching and rashes.
Fortunately there are treatments for this annoying and painful problem. There are several oral medications on the market that have been proven to eradicate scabies, but they are most effective when combined with a topical cream or lotion. There are also natural shampoos, lotions, and creams that contain no pesticides or toxins that can work to get rid of these annoying pests and the problems they are causing in your home.
