How to Use Permethrin for Scabies

How to Use Permethrin for Scabies


If you’re an adult under the age of 65 who wants to use permethrin 5% cream to treat scabies, then the first thing you should do is speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.


They’ll be able to tell you whether permethrin is the right treatment for you and give you advice about how to apply it.


Once you’ve been given the go ahead, the usual way you’ll treat your scabies is as follows:


  • Before using permethrin, take a shower or bath if you can for best results.
  • Apply one full 30g tube all over the body, but do not apply to the head or face. You may need to use a second tube for full body coverage, but should not use more than 60g.
  • Make sure to pay special attention to tricky areas like between your fingers and toes, your armpits, and under your nails. You should make sure that your entire body is covered.
  • Leave the cream on for at least 8 hours and wash off with soap and water within 12 hours.
  • You’ll usually only need a single application. If you don’t think the treatment has worked, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for further advice.
