Scabies UNF Jacksonville Dorm

Because we have an office and warehouse in Jacksonville, FL, we though it would be a good idea to write a little about the recent Scabies Outbreak at UNF Jacksonville Florida.

When a scabies mite  breakout occurs in a college dorm building where people are in close contact or proximity to each other, it is a bit of an emergency to get the word out and educate people on how to avoid the spread or how to manage the scabies should you discover that you have become affected with the scabies mite. If just 10 people are passing scabies mites around affects thousands of people in the end. It is very important to be educated and prepared.

Scabies is an itchy bumpy skin issue that is caused by a tiny mite who burrows in the skin called Sarcoptes scabiei.  Extremely intense itching will occur in the area where the mite burrows. Often the need to scratch may be stronger at night. Losing sleep affects the immune system, and some people become affected mentally as well as physically.  

Scabies is contagious and can spread quickly through close person-to-person contact in a family, child care group, school class, nursing home or prison. Because scabies spreads so easily, health care providers often recommend treating the entire family or any close contacts.

There are very effective natural ways to deal with scabies mites, and it is important to realize that the standard in care, permethrin is highly toxic and not very effective. Permethrin is the drug of choice prescription written by a Dr. for the treatment of scabies. Topical permethrin should be administered every 2-3 days for 1-2 weeks to treat crusted scabies. This means covering every inch of your body with a highly toxic drug that penetrates into your body. Permethrin is highly toxic to cats especially, and in a scientific study, Permethrin exposure affected neurobehavior and cellular characterization in rats’ brains. A simple google search about the toxicity will reveal much information.

Moving on to a more natural solution, our natural based scabies mites skin products and the educational instruction information we send with every product will get you a much better result than the toxic alternative, and your animals will be safer.  We have sold hundreds of thousands of scabies skin care kits to the general public for the past 7 years and our customers get results. Period.  

The ingredient percentages and meticulously formulated blends are the reason why we get results and give relief quickly to our customers.  The scabies mites have cycles, they have patterns, and we know all about it.  For instance, once they are in your skin, they are busy mating and laying eggs that will produce more scabies in 4-5 weeks.  This is the main reason why permethrin does not work. What permethrin does do is cause dryness, irritation, inhalation safety concerns and future toxicity health concerns.

UNF Jacksonville is just one college dorm, just one breakout that happens constantly all throughout the world on a daily basis. Catching it and pre treating yourself BEFORE you realize you have the scabies mite infestation is perhaps the smartest thing you can do. Why wait? Get started on a few basic skin and scalp products that can bring you mental peace and help prevent the infestation or to minimize the capability of the scabies mites to affect you at all.
