Any fresh oregano? Even dry -- spice cabinet! That is helpful, has anti bacterial and anti inflammatory values. With dousing for the mites and eating that it may clear. You would know in just a few days of use.

I used mineral oil, applied with an eye dropper. I did a monthly application as a preventative. If there was a case of ear mites, they got daily treatment until the crusty crud was gone. I also cleaned the softened crud out with Qtips.

Castor oil would be good. It helps with scaly leg mites by smothering them but it is also antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal. Gets rid of warts too, though it takes time :D

My mom's two favorite remedies when I was a kid were castor oil (topically)
and ACV (internal and topical). Those two really do cover quite a lot of problems.
