Coconut oil is known for healing qualities and penetrates the skin pretty quickly. It is a heavy oil that smothers scabies in three to four hours when applies to the bites.

Yes coconut oil is good for scabies and is well known for its skin penetrating qualities. Another oil that is good is olive oil, it may seem weird but it is known as a home remedy for scabies and other skin related ailments. I would definitely try both and see which works best.
