Description

Lyderm Cream is a topical treatment for scabies, a contagious parasitic infection, caused by the parasitic mite Sarcoptes scabiei. which is transmitted by direct skin contact. The scabies mite burrows into the skin causing itching as it burrows. The itching can be intense and is often worse at night. Within two to six weeks after infection the mite can cause an allergic reaction with symptoms including a rash, seen as small red bumps on the limbs and trunk, which are usually very itchy; also nodules in the groin or armpit. Burrow lines can also be seen at the site of infection, usually between the fingers, on the skin of the hands, feet, wrist, elbows, buttocks and genitals. If left untreated scabies infection can cause secondary complications like impetigo (infection and inflammation of superficial skin cells) and cellulitis (inflammation of the lower dermal or subcutaneous skin layers). Lyderm Cream kills the scabies parasite, preventing spread of infection and eventually relieving symptoms of the infection.

Directions:

You should apply your Lyderm Cream to clean, dry, cool skin by gently rubbing all over your body from the neck downwards, including the soles of the feet, and using the whole tube as a single application. The cream will absorb into the skin and you should not reapply if there is no cream left on the surface. Leave the Lyderm Cream on your skin for 8-14 hours then wash off. You should not apply your Lyderm Cream to broken skin or mucous membranes and avoid contact with the eyes. Usually a single application will kill all the scabies and prevent reinfection. If there are signs that the infection has not cleared you can apply a second tube of Cream after 7-14 days.

Ingredients:

Lyderm Cream contains active ingredient permethrin (5% w/w), a synthetic insecticide used to treat scabies infection. It also contains a water miscible base.
