Can home remedies kill scabies?

Home treatments like tea tree oil, tiger balm, white vinegar, neem oil, cayenne pepper…may help get rid of the parasites, especially if the person has become resistant to conventional medical treatments, like Permethrin cream and ivermectin; Even so, there are not enough scientific or medical experiments and evidence to prove their efficacy; then, it is necessary to see a dermatologist to prescribe the appropriate treatment or creams necessary to get rid of scabies mites, because some home remedies may help to relieve the symptoms (rash, itchiness.) but can’t kill scabies.

Why you need the vinegar for your wrinkles is to tighten the skin and protect it from harmful environmental elements; also, because it contains vitamin C and other vitamins that stimulate the production of collagen.
