Permethrin Cream 5% is a topical medication used to treat scabies and certain types of head lice infestations. It contains the active ingredient permethrin, which belongs to a class of drugs known as pyrethroids. Permethrin works by paralysing and killing the mites or lice responsible for the infestation, providing relief from itching and discomfort.

    • Adults and children over 2 months old: Apply the cream to the entire body from the neck down, including the soles of the feet. Make sure to cover all skin surfaces.
    • Leave the cream on for 8-14 hours, usually overnight.
    • After the recommended time, wash the cream off thoroughly with warm, soapy water.
