ABOUT THE PRODUCT: Crotamiton belongs to two classes of medicines called antipruritics and scabicides. It works by killing the mites, which cause scabies.
Your doctor will explain how to use Crotorax Cream and how much you need. Read the instructions that come with the medicine to make sure you use it correctly. Generally, it is applied to your whole body except your head, mouth, eyes and face. Your skin should be clean, dry and cool before using it. You should take a cleansing bath after 48 hours of the last application to remove the traces of the medication from the skin. After each application, change your clothes, towels and bed sheets to stop the spread of infection.
KEY FEATURES: Scabies is a condition caused by tiny insects called mites that infest and irritate your skin. Crotorax Cream is an anti-parasite medicine. It works by paralyzing and killing the mites and their eggs. Generally, the cream should be applied to the whole body except the face and head but follow your doctor?s advice. It should be thoroughly washed off after 8-12 hours. Often one application is enough to treat the condition completely but sometimes a second one may be required a week later. This will get rid of the itching, swelling and redness caused by mites. However, dead mites may still make you itch for some time.
DIRECTION TO USE: This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the cream. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.
PRECAUTION: The most common side effects include mild burning, stinging or tingling where the medicine is applied. Most side effects are usually mild and not everyone gets them. Sometimes itching may last for a few weeks after treating scabies. This is probably an allergic reaction to dead mites and not a sign that the treatment has failed.
