Permethrin (Lyclear) 5% Cream is a scabies treatment designed to clear an infestation in as little as 8 hours.

In most cases, one treatment is enough to eradicate scabies. 

 

How Permethrin (Lyclear) 5% Cream works

Permethrin (Lyclear) 5% Cream contains the active ingredient permethrin. Permethrin belongs to a group of insecticides called pyrethroids. It works by paralysing and killing any insect it comes into contact with.

The cream must be applied to cool, clear, dry skin. Do not take a hot shower or bath before using the cream.

To apply the product, rub it into your skin until it has been fully absorbed. You must use enough cream to cover the entire surface of the body.
