Scabies- how to prevent?
Hello, I am suffering from scabies. I have got pimple like bumps on my skin. Please suggest how to prevent this condition?
@gul Treatment for scabies usually involves getting rid of the infestation with prescription ointments, creams, and lotions that can be applied directly to the skin. Oral medications are also available.
Your doctor will probably instruct you to apply the medicine at night when the mites are most active. You may need to treat all of your skin from the neck down. The medicine can be washed off the following morning.
Make sure you follow your doctor’s instructions very carefully. You may need to repeat the topical treatment in seven days.
Some common medicines used to treat scabies include:
5 percent permethrin cream
25 percent benzyl benzoate lotion
10 percent sulfur ointment
10 percent crotamiton cream
1 percent lindane lotion
