Permethrin is a synthetic chemical that has a broad spectrum of insecticidal activity. It is taken up by insects through their mouth, airways or their surface coverings.
Permethrin works by binding to a particular site (sodium channels) on nerve endings. This leads to a complex series of reactions in various organs, leading to paralysis of the nervous system, inhibition of metabolism and ultimately death of the insect.
This preparation is used to treat skin infections with mites (scabies) or crab lice.
The most common medicine used for scabies is permethrin , a cream which your doctor must prescribe for you. Treatment for scabies is pretty straightforward, although it's time-consuming too. Since the mite is transferred from one person to another by personal contact or by linens and clothes, we assume that everyone in the same house with a scabies patient has scabies themselves whether or not they are yet itching. The following care should be taken:
There are two types of products available without prescription that are effective for scabies: permethrin and pyrethrins. Although permethrin in stronger concentration is effective against scabies, it is not currently available for OTC use, so you must have a doctor's prescription for scabies treatment.
With the 5% permethrin preparation for treating scabies, a response rate of over 90% is anticipated after a single application, and success can often be improved by a second treatment.
