Conditions such as scabies, crab lice, and public lice can be embarrassing and difficult to combat. Lyclear Dermal Cream Permethrin 5% W/W can help clear and prevent these conditions with speed and ease
Lyclear Dermal Cream Permethrin is for external use only and, in most cases, only a single application is required to clear the infestation. The cream is suitable for all ages but you should read the enclosed directions to ensure you apply it correctly for your age group.
Lyclear cream contains permethrin 5%, an insecticide that kills the mites that cause scabies and pubic lice. It binds to the nerve endings in the scabies mites and crabs, causing paralysis and ultimately death to the parasites—continue reading for advice about use, warnings, and side effects.
When treating scabies it is important to cover the whole body with the cream and leave it over night. Pay special attention to the webs of the hands and feet. One application of Lyclear Permethrin Cream should be enough to clear your scabies infection. Itching may continue for up to four weeks, however, as the scabies mites die and release toxins.
Scabies mites burrow into the skin and although Lyclear Cream kills them, they release a toxin which can cause itchiness for some days. You can treat the itch with Eurax lotion or cream.
Adults and children over 2 years old:
Apply Lyclear Dermal Cream Permethrin on the skin all over the body apart from the face and head but including soles and palms. Pay special care to the external genitals, arm-pits, wrists, buttocks and to the areas between and under the fingers and toes.
Elderly (over 65 years):
Apply Lyclear Dermal Cream Permethrin as for adults above but also treat the face, neck, ears and scalp. Take care when apply Lyclear cream around the mouth and eyes.
Children aged 2 months to 2 years should only use Lyclear Dermal Cream Permethrin under medical supervision.
Leave Lyclear Dermal Cream Permethrin on for at least 8 to 12 hours, and then wash off with water and soap.
Lyclear Permethrin cream should not be applied after a hot bath. Ideally it should be applied to cool, dry skin.
Re-apply Lyclear Dermal Cream Permethrin to your hands, if within 8 hours of treatment, they have been washed with water and soap.
You can re-apply Lyclear cream after 7 days if the first application is unsuccessful in treating your scabies infection.

Lyclear dermal cream contains the active ingredient permethrin, an insecticide that treats scabies and crab lice.
Apply the cream over the whole body; the permethrin kills the parasites by poisoning them.
Repeat the treatment after seven days to kill any parasites that have survived or that have emerged from eggs.
Apply Lyclear to clean, dry, cool skin. If you have had a hot bath or shower, allow the skin to cool before application. Rub the cream gently into the skin until it vanishes.
The active ingredient, Permethrin (a pyrethroid—anti-parasitic agent) binds to sodium channels on the parasite’s nerve endings. This leads to paralysis of the nervous system and ultimately the insect’s death.
Please note that this product is Lyclear Dermal Cream, which is a cream for scabies and pubic lice.
