Question Is it possible to kill scabies with alcohol intoxication?


I have all reasons to believe I had contracted scabies. I got a severe itching at night times and after a hot showers, the scratch marks looked sort of similar to web images, however I am not a doctor to be sure. I couldn't visit a skin specialist because of the holidays.

Anyway, I got very drunk during Xmas party, and the itching disappeared within 1 day after that. Another 4-5 days passed and the itching started to come back gradually. But then I had a great New Year eve and got really-really drunk. The itching completely disappeared over the next 1-2 days and since then my skin is unusually calm. There is no irritation, no rush, no scratch marks, so I guess there is nothing to show to my doctor.

Anyway, while I am not going to get drunk again until the next New Year Eve I would like to know if scabies can be killed through severe alcohol intoxication/poisoning. Is it possible for the alcohol and its products to make their way to the skin cells and to "poison" scabies from inside?

The reason I am asking is that I am curious if I did have scabies or perhaps this was some other skin infection that could be killed this way.

Many thanks
