The second and probably most often used treatment for scabies is a cream, called Lyclear Dermal Cream. It is a lanolin based moisturizing cream containing 5% permethrin in a 30g tube.
It does go a long way but you may need to have two tubes for one application depending on the size of the person needing the treatment. A baby or toddler will not require the whole tube but a teenager will and a much larger person may need two tubes. Once again it will need to be applied from the head down.
It is best to apply the treatment before your children go to bed as it should be left on for at least twelve (12) hours before being rinsed off with cool water, and then having a bath or shower in the normal way. If any area of the body is washed during the treatment time the lotion or cream must be reapplied. e.g. after hand washing and/or a nappy changes.
