Hello, Mr. Dewa Suryantha. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
The medicine you mentioned has Permethrin content. This substance is a useful drug to kill the parasite Sarcoptes scabiei that causes scabies. This drug works by causing interference with ion exchange in the cells of the louse so that the louse becomes paralyzed and then dies.
First of all, have you followed the usage instructions exactly? How to use permethrin properly is as follows:
Thinly apply the cream throughout the body, from the neck to the soles of the feet. Leave it for 8-14 hours. After that, rinse with water while bathing. If symptoms still appear after treatment, the use of Permethrin cream can be repeated again in 10-14 days later. Do not hesitate too to consult directly with a dermatologist to evaluate your health condition and post-treatment development.
In addition to using creams by individual patients, scabies treatment also needs to be done jointly for people who live with patients. This is useful to break the chain of transmission of disease. In addition, it is also recommended to clean all clothes, sheets, pillowcases using soap and warm water, then dry in the sun. Also dry the pillows and mattress in the hot sun.
