Scabies Lotion

Scabies Lotion

Although there are several scabies treatment and scabies cream options on the market; there is only a couple Scabies Lotions on the market. The common Scabies Lotion is called Lindane and it does not come without serious risks to pregnant women, young children or people with compromised immune systems.  The other “Scabies Lotion” is called Mitactin.

The likelihood and seriousness of defects may be influenced by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy the exposure happened at.

Lindane “Scabies Lotion” instructions:

Treat with lindane ( Kwell ) Scabies Lotion applying to the whole body from the neck down. Focus on the areas affected. The patient should apply this prescription medicine and leave it on for twenty-four hours before washing it off ( 60-120ml is necessary for the average adult ).

It could be important to repeat this Scabies Lotion treatment after one week, though not earlier. If the itching doesn’t immediately go away,  that this doesn’t mean the Kwell  Scabies Lotion was ineffectual. Dead mites and eggs continue to scratch as they’re soaked up by the body.

An antipruritic agent like hydroxyzine ( Atarax ) 25mg q6h can be prescribed for comfort.

WARNING: Don’t use Kwell Scabies Lotion on children, small children, or pregnant girls. Up to ten percent of this Scabies Lotion insecticide may be soaked up percutaneously, manufacturing fits or CNS poisonousness, and thus an alternative remedy should be sought. Irregularly , lindane Scabies Lotion has been responsible for episodes ( sometimes death ) after prolonged or continual usage. Rare ( often lethal ) nerve system reactions such as fits may happen, even after only one use of lindane.

Mitactin “Scabies Lotion”

scabies lotionWe recommend other scabies treatment options such as non toxic, but highly effective Mitactin “Scabies Lotion”.  Mitactin is easy to use, safe and highly effective.  Learn more about Mitactin Skin Cleaner and Mitactin Salve for your scabies symptoms.

After you apply your “Scabies Lotion” or Scabies Treatment:

Once you’ve applied your “Scabies Lotion”, Wash linens and bedclothes in hot water. Because scabies mites don’t live long away from the body, it is not necessary to dry clean the whole wardrobe.  Spray furniture and rugs with disinfectant or a mite, tick or flea killer.

Treat sexual contacts or relevant family members (who either have either symptoms or have the kind of relationship that makes transmission likely).

Just as the itch of scabies takes a while to reach a crescendo, it takes a few days to subside after Scabies Lotiontreatment. After a week or two, relief is dramatic when using Lindane; however it has been repeatly reported that relief is almost immediate when using Mitactin Scabies Lotion.
