Do not apply permethrin scabies medicine more than once. You only need to use the medicine again if you can see live mites on your skin 14 days after you have been treated. Overuse of scabies medicines can irritate the skin and may increase the risk of side Mild and transient burning and stinging. Itching...Skin redness....Skin swelling....Skinrash...Numbness or tingling where the medicine was applied... Scabies symptoms may temporarily worsen after treatment.
Local side effects : skin irritation, skin burning Gi effect : Nausea Cns effect : headache, muscle weakness, tremors, seizure This is only occurs after prolong use and inhaled
Permethorin oint application locally neck all-over body once weekly. If pt is sensitive than few side effects may be there otherwise no serious side effects noted.
Thanks Dr Pushkar Bhomia
