Adults: Apply once. If necessary, a second application may be given not less than 7 days after the initial application. Other members of the family should use this lotion as preventive in the same way due to its highly contagious effects.

Children aged 2 months to 2 years: Apply over whole body under doctor supervision.

HOW TO USE:
Lotion should be applied to clean, dry skin. If the body is hot due to warm bath or any other reason, skin should be allowed to cool. It should be applied to the whole body excluding head. The whole body should be washed thoroughly 8-12 hours after treatment. On the next day cloths and bed sheets should be cleaned with warm water. 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. The lotion should not be applied to the vicinity of mouth and areas close to eyes. 

Contraindication:

Permethrin is contraindicated in subjects with known hypersensitivity to the Product.

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. 

Pregnancy and 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. 

Packing:

Each container contains 60 ml lotion of Crotamiton BP 10% Permethrin BP 5%.
