What is the treatment of scabies for 4month old child.

Permethrin has been used as a first-line treatment of scabies in patients older than 2 months of age. Repeat after 1 week. Crotamiton is the only scabicide available today which displays not only antiprurtic but also marked antibacterial properties. I usually advised to use locally Crotorax cream during first week wherever lesions persist along Atarax Drop.

Treatment consists of application of 5% permethrin cream at bedtime to all skin surfaces in infants and from the neck down in older family members; it should be washed off after 8~14 hours. Repeated applications may be needed, as the failure rate is significant.
