What is Scabies?

Scabies is a prevalent condition that occurs upon contact with minuscule mites. These mites take up residence on your skin and commence the egg-laying process. If you have scabies, you might observe the following indicators:

  • Burrow marks: These are short, silvery lines on the skin, often ending in a tiny dot.
  • Rash: This rash has the potential to spread across the entire body.
  • Itching
  • In infants, you may also notice the presence of blisters or pustules.

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:

  • Itching, often severe and usually worse at night
  • Thin, irregular burrow tracks made up of tiny blisters or bumps on your skin

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:

  • Between the fingers
  • In the armpits
  • Around the waist
  • Along the insides of the wrists
  • On the inner elbows
  • On the soles of the feet
  • Around the breasts
  • Around the male genital area
  • On the buttocks
  • On the knees

In infants and young children, common sites of infestation usually include the:

  • Scalp
  • Palms of the hands
  • Soles of the feet

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 To Use

How To Use Permethrin Cream

Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

To pierce tube, remove the cap and reverse it over the nozzle, push firmly and turn.

Apply the cream to clean, dry, cool skin. Do not take a hot bath or shower immediately before treatment.

Carefully apply a thin layer of cream to the skin (see “How and when should you use Permethrin Dermal Cream?”)


To treat scabies

Adults and adolescents over 12 years of age. Apply up to 30 g of cream (corresponding to one tube of 30 g)

Children aged from 6 – 12 years. Apply up to 15 g of cream (corresponding to ½ tube of 30 g)

Children aged from 2 months – 5 years. Apply up to 7.5 g of cream (corresponding to ¼ tube of 30 g)

Newborns and infants under 2 months of age.


There is only limited amount of data available in this age group and no dose can be recommended (see also section 2 under “warnings and precautions”).

The above information is merely a guide. The dose can be adjusted according to the needs of the individual patient and the individual body surface area. For example, some adults require a larger
amount of cream.


To treat crab lice

Adults over 18 years of age: Apply up to 30 g of cream (corresponding to one tube of 30 g).


How and when should you use Permethrin Dermal Cream?

Permethrin 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 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 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 Permethrin Dermal Cream?

One application of Permethrin 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
