Description

Lyclear dermal cream contains the active ingredient permethrin (5%w/w), which is an insecticide used to treat scabies and crab lice.

The cream is applied over the whole body and the permethrin kills these parasites on the skin surface by poisoning them.

The treatment should be repeated after seven days to kill any parasites surviving the first treatment or that have emerged from surviving eggs.

Scabies –

  • All members of the affected household should be treated at the same time.
  • Lyclear dermal cream should be applied evenly over the whole body, including the external genitals, buttocks, wrists, elbows, armpits, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, areas between fingers and toes and underneath the fingernails and toenails. You should also treat the neck, face, ears and scalp, but avoid the areas around the eyes.
  • Adults, including elderly people, should use up to one 30g tube for one treatment. Larger people may require up to two tubes.
  • Children aged 6 to 12 years should be treated with up to half a 30g tube. Children aged two months to six years should be treated with up to one quarter of a 30g tube. With children you should avoid applying the cream to areas around their mouth to avoid it being licked off. If the child is likely to put their hands in their mouth they should wear gloves.
  • Leave the cream on the skin for 8 to 12 hours (you won’t be able to see it) and then thoroughly wash the whole body. For example, you could apply the cream at bedtime and wash it off in the morning.
  • If you need to wash a treated area within the 8 to 12 hour period, for example your hands, then you should reapply the cream to that area after each time you wash.
  • The treatment should be repeated after seven days

Crab lice – 

  • Adults should apply enough cream to cover the entire body, including the pubic region, area around the anus, inner thighs down to the knees and any hair that grows up from the pubic area to the chest/stomach. You should also apply it to the scalp, neck and face, particularly facial hair (beards, moustaches) and eyebrows. Take care to avoid the eyes. If you find live lice or eggs on the eyelashes they should be removed carefully using tweezers. Don’t apply the cream to the eyelashes because it can cause moderate eye irritation.
  • Leave the cream on the skin and hair for 12 hours (you won’t be able to see it) and then thoroughly wash it off. For example, you could apply the cream at bedtime and wash it off in the morning.
  • The treatment should be repeated after seven days.

Usually a single application clears the infestation. If you are in doubt about the success of the treatment speak to your doctor.

Treatment of Scabies; Adults and children over 2 years old should apply the cream to the skin over the whole body including the palms and soles, but not the head and face. Pay particular attention to the areas between the fingers and toes (including under the finger and toe nails), wrists, armpits, external genitals and buttocks.
The elderly (over 65 years) should apply as directed for adults and children over 2 years but should also include theneck, face, ears and scalps. Take care when applying close to the eyes.
The cream should be left on for at least 8 hours, then washed off with soap and water not more than 12 hours later.

Treatment of Crab (Pubic) Lice:
Not reccommended for persons under 18 years; the lederly should be treated under medical supervision. Adults 18 years and over: sufficient cream should be applied to cover the pubic region, peri-anal, inner thighs down to the knees and any hair that grows from the pubic area to the chest/stomach.
One 30g tube should be sufficient to treat one hairy adult. Use up to a third of the tube to treat the pubic region, peri-anal region, thighs, stomach and chest. Not more than two thirds of the tube should be used for complete treatment. Leave the cream on the skin for 24 hours. The treatment areas should then be thoroughly washed.
Any facial hair (beards, moustaches) and eyelashes should be checked for the presence of live lice and eggs.

Lyclear Dermal Cream can have side effects, although these are usually mild.
-Occasionally burning or stinging of the skin occurs, but it is usually slight and passes quickly
-Treatment of scabies may result in continued or increased irritation for a short while. This may show as redness of the skin, a rash or itching.
-You may find that the itching you have experienced continues for up to 4 weeks after treatment with Lyclear Dermal Cream. This is normal and is caused by an allergic reation to dead scabies mites. It is not a sign that the treatmant has failed.
