How to Use Nix As a Treatment for Scabies

Scabies are mites that burrow under your skin. They cause severe itching that may be worse at night. You get them by direct contact with someone who is infected. They typically appear in certain places on your body such as your armpits, around your waist or breasts, between your fingers or toes, around your buttocks, around your ankles of the soles of your feet or on your genitals. They can live for up to 36 hours without a host.
