Scabisin lotion is a medication used to treat scabies, a skin condition caused by tiny parasitic mites that infest and irritate the skin. The lotion works by killing the mites and their eggs. To use the medication, follow the instructions provided by your doctor or pharmacist and make sure to apply it only externally on dry and clean skin. Always wear gloves when applying it, especially if applying to another person. Do not cover the affected area with clothing, and do not use it on open wounds. In case of accidental contact with eyes, mouth, or nose, wash the affected area immediately with plenty of water.
Although Scabisin lotion is generally safe, it may cause side effects such as itching, numbness, tingling or pricking sensation, headache, dry skin, and hair loss. If any of these effects persist, it is best to consult your doctor. If you have a history of seizures or fits, inform your doctor before using this medication. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should avoid using Scabisin lotion.
To treat scabies, the lotion should be applied to the entire body except for the face, as directed by your doctor. It should be left on the skin for 8-12 hours before being thoroughly washed off. Often, one application is enough to completely treat the condition, but a second application may be necessary a week later. Dead mites may continue to cause itching for some time after treatment.
