What is Lyclear Dermal Cream?
Permethrin is the active ingredient in Lyclear Dermal cream - a cream used in treating infestations of scabies, pubic lice and crab lice on the body. It contains the active ingredient permethrin, which works to kill the scabies mites. Generally, permethrin will be effective in controlling an infestation after just one application. To make sure your treatment is successful, read the advice on how to apply the cream carefully.
The itching associated with scabies can continue for up to 4 weeks even after a successful application of permethrin Dermal Cream, as the dead mites and eggs are still attached to the skin. There is no need to reapply the cream within this period. You can relieve symptoms of the itch by applying itch relief creams or taking an antihistamine.
To help relieve the symptoms associated with scabies or lice, you can use an anti-histamine or anti-itch cream to relieve these symptoms if required. Examples include;
These may be particularly useful even after permethrin use, as itching can continue for weeks after treatment. This does not necessarily mean you still have the mite.
Lyclear Dermal Cream (Permethrin 5%) Side Effects
Most people who use Permethrin Cream will not experience any side effects, however, if you do they may include:
Burning or stinging of the skin (this is usually slight and passes quickly).
Treatment of scabies may result in continued or increased irritation for a short while. This may show as redness or swelling of the skin, a rash or itching.
You might find that the itching you have been experiencing with scabies continues for up to 4 weeks after treatment with Permethrin Cream. This is normal and caused by an allergic reaction to the dead scabies mites. It is not a sign that treatment has failed.
If you do experience any side effects, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
