What is scabies?
Scabies is a common condition that happens when scabies mites start to infest your skin.
When you have scabies, you’ll notice the symptoms showing up all over your body, except your head, although elderly people and children may see symptoms on their head too.
And yes, when we say everywhere, we MEAN everywhere (hey, nobody said this was pleasant).
When the scabies mites get onto your skin, they’ll start to burrow, laying their eggs in the tracks they leave behind.
If scabies isn’t treated, these eggs can hatch and the cycle will begin all over again – and if that won’t convince you to get treatment, nothing will!
Can lice shampoo be used to treat scabies?
Shampoos aren’t a suitable treatment for scabies, as they affect your skin, rather than your hair.
The best way to treat scabies is to use a lotion or a cream that will help to get rid of the mites that cause scabies, clearing the infestation from your whole body.
If you think you may have scabies and are unsure how to treat them, we recommend asking your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
How does permethrin work to treat scabies and crab lice?
Permethrin is a type of insecticide known as a pyrethroid. It works by affecting the nervous system of any insects that come into contact with it, and is especially effective against biting insects.
It can give insects muscle spasms and paralysis and will eventually kill them, treating the infestation of scabies, crab lice, or head lice directly.
