permethrin cream hardly seen with adverse reactions. mostly r insignificant. but above complaints after applying permethrin 5% could be due to hypersensitivity or due to excessive application. No need to worry just advise to have proper application or use another scabicide topical medication. in such cases next day u can advise to apply calamine lotion due to permethrin irritation if causes.
