Medications like Permethrin, crotamiton and malathion are helpful in killing both the adults and eggs and thus relieve itching. It has been found that 10% sulfur ointment found in Petroleum jelly if applied on the affected part relieves itching. Neem oil has also been found very effective. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scabies
