Ensure that the skin is clean, dry and cool prior to treatment.
Adults & children: apply thoroughly to all body parts from the head to the soles of the feet, paying particular attention to all the folds and creases. Scabies rarely infests the scalp of adults, although the hairline, neck, temple and forehead may be infested in infants and geriatric patients. Leave medication on for 8 - 14 hours, and then wash off completely. Usually a 30 ml bottle is sufficient for any adult.
Infants under 2 months: not recommended.
One application is generally curative.
Persistent pruritus may be experienced after treatment. This is rarely a sign of treatment failure and is not an indication for re-treatment. Itching usually persists for a few days or even weeks after treatment even though the mite has been killed. This is because it takes time for the allergic reaction to subside.
