What is Permethrin Cream?

Permethrin Cream is a topical medication used to treat scabies, a condition caused by tiny insects called mites that infest and irritate your skin. The cream contains the active ingredient permethrin, which belongs to a group of medicines called pyrethroids, used to kill parasites such as mites and lice.

What is Permethrin Cream used for?

Permethrin Cream is primarily used to treat scabies. Scabies is a contagious skin condition caused by a tiny mite. The cream works by killing the mites, thereby treating the infestation. In addition to scabies, Permethrin Cream can also be used to treat crab lice.

How does Permethrin Cream work?

Permethrin, the active ingredient in the cream, works by paralysing and killing the mites that cause scabies. It interferes with the mites’ nervous system, which eventually leads to their death. The cream also helps to alleviate the itching and inflammation caused by the mite infestation.

Who is Permethrin Cream suitable for?

Permethrin Cream is suitable for adults and children over the age of two months. However, it may not be suitable for people who are allergic to any of the ingredients in the cream. It’s also not recommended for use during pregnancy unless clearly necessary and advised by a doctor or pharmacist.

How to Apply Permethrin Cream

  • Apply the cream to clean, dry, cool skin.
  • Cover the entire skin surface, from the neck down, with the cream.
  • Pay special attention to areas where mite burrows can be found, such as between the fingers and toes, under the nails, and on the wrists, elbows, armpits, and external genitalia.
  • Leave the cream on for 8 to 14 hours, then wash it off with water and soap.

The cream should be applied once, and it’s usually left on for 8 to 14 hours before being washed off. In some cases, a second application may be necessary seven days after the first treatment.

The duration of treatment depends on the severity of the infestation. However, most people find that their symptoms improve within two weeks of treatment.
