Scabies Require KU Shen Tang GAO

August 2, 2012

scabiesScabies (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. [1]

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.

Ku Shen Tang Gao contains the following herbal ingredients:

  • Ku Shen, Ju Hua, She Chuan Zi, Jin Yin Hua, Bai Zhi, Huang Bai, Di Fu Zi, Shi Chang Pu and a paraffin free cream base

You will need to apply it 2 – 3 times a day and continue to do so until the rash and itching has totally disappeared. Bed linen and any clothing has to be washed and dried in direct sunlight or a hot dryer. Scabies easily spread by skin-to-skin contact. This means you will have t stay away from others, if you don’t want them to become infested too.

Ask for Ku Shen Tang Gao from your registered Chinese Medicine practitioner or find a practitioner in your area.
