Lyclear Cream is a wonderful option for the treatment of scabies in adults and children, as well as crab lice. It can be used to treat all ages 2 months up through adulthood!
The itchy skin condition called scabies is caused by a tiny burrowing mite, Sarcoptes scabiei. The intense itching can occur in the area where these bugs tunnel and cause you to scratch at night when your body needs extra sleep for healing purposes.
Scabies is more than a skin problem, it’s an emotional and social one. The close contact of family members can trigger this infection quickly through your clothes or bedding which may spread to other people who come in contact with you such as children at daycare centers or schools who have not been infected before. Doctors often recommend treatment for entire families when curable scabies infections are caught early enough because if untreated these mite infestations could lead on from milder cases like eczema into much harder-to -treat urticaria (hives).
Scabies signs and symptoms include:
The burrows or tracks typically appear in folds of skin. Though almost any part of the body may be involved, in adults and older children scabies is most often found:
In infants and young children, common sites of infestation usually include the:
If you’ve had scabies before, signs and symptoms may develop within a few days of exposure. If you’ve never had scabies, it can take as long as six weeks for signs and symptoms to begin. You can still spread scabies even if you don’t have any signs or symptoms yet.

How and when should you use Lyclear Dermal Cream?
Lyclear Dermal Cream is for cutaneous use only.
Take care not to allow the cream to get into the eyes or come into contact with mucous membranes (inside the nose or throat, genital region) or open wounds. If accidental contact occurs, rinse
thoroughly with water.
Adults should apply the cream to the whole body including the neck, palms of the hands and soles of
the feet. The head and face can be spared unless this area includes places affected by scabies (itch mites).
When applying the cream, the areas between the fingers and toes (also under the finger- and toe-nails),
the wrists, elbows, armpits, external genitalia and buttocks should be especially carefully treated.
For treatment of crab lice in adults: Any facial hair (beards moustaches) and eyelashes should be checked for the presence of live lice and eggs. Cream should be applied to any facial hair, carefully avoiding eyes. If live lice or eggs are found on the eyelashes they should be removed carefully using
tweezers. Cream should not be applied to the eye lashes because the cream can cause moderate eye irritation.
Children, Children should apply the cream uniformly to the whole body, including the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, neck, face, ears, and scalp. Parts of the skin around the mouth (because the
cream could be licked off) and the eyes should be spared.
Keep your child from licking the cream from the hands. If necessary, children should wear gloves.
There is no adequate experience in infants and toddlers. Treatment to children up to the age of 23 months should therefore only be treated under close medical supervision.
Elderly, Elderly patients (over 65 years) should use the cream in the same way as adults but in addition, the face, ears and scalp should also be treated. Care should be taken to avoid applying the
cream to areas of skin around the eyes.
How long should you use Lyclear Dermal Cream?
One application of Lyclear Dermal Cream is usually sufficient.
Leave the cream on the skin for at least eight hours, for example, overnight. Avoid bathing, showering or washing during this period, because this could endanger the success of treatment. If, by way of an exception, you have to wash your hands within the eight hour period, then reapply the cream to the hands and wrist area. The same applies if you have to wash other parts of treated skin (buttocks, external genitalia).
After at least eight hours, take a shower or wash the skin with soap and water.
Provided these instructions for use are followed, a single application is generally sufficient for successful treatment. However, in cases of persistent or renewed infestation, it may be necessary to repeat the treatment after 14 days
