Scabies (from Latin: scabere, “to scratch”), also known as the seven-year itch is a contagious skin infection that occurs among humans and animals. It is caused by a tiny and usually not directly visible parasite, which burrows under the host’s skin, causing intense allergic itching. The disease may be transmitted from objects but is most often transmitted by direct skin-to-skin contact. 
In Chinese medicine we associate intense itching with the presence of dampness and wind that in the case of scabies is caused by the borrowed, egg laying parasites and their faeces strongly aggravating the most superficial skin layers.
When it comes to the treatment of the mites, some harsh, chemical substances are available. You can also find sites that offer miracle treatments without disclosing what the ingredients are. Tea tree oil is noted as non-proven treatment.
Ku Shen Tang Gao is a topical ointment that is very effective in treating scabies because it does address the itching by eliminating dampness and wind as well as kill the parasites the causative factors of the condition.
