The lotion should be applied if lotion is washed out by water. Other members of the family should use this lotion as preventive in the same way due to its highly contagious effects.

Side Effects

Generally mild and transient burning and stinging are followed by application of lotion. Other temporary symptoms of irritation including pruritus, erythema, numbness, eczema and rash may occur. In patients itching may persist for up to 4 weeks Post-treatment. This is generally regarded as due to an allergic reaction to the dead mites under the skin and is not necessarily indicative of a treatment failure.

Use in Pregnancy & Lactation

Pregnancy: There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, this drug should be used in pregnancy only if clearly needed.

Lactation: It is not known whether the lotion is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, consideration should be given to discontinuing nursing temporarily or withholding the drug while the mother is nursing.

Drug Interaction

There are no known drug interactions with the lotion.

No instance of accidental ingestion of Permethrin has been reported. If ingested, gastric lavage and general supportive measures should be employed.
