Permethrin cream 5% is a topical remedy designed for the treatment of scabies, which is a condition caused by mites infecting your skin and causing a number of unpleasant symptoms. Permethrin is in the class of pyrethrins; it works by killing the mites and preventing their eggs from developing into adult species. You can buy Permethrin cream 5% at your local pharmacy or order it online. The second variant is preferable if you have a big family and everyone requires this kind of treatment at the moment, yet you would not want to spend too much of your time or money. When you buy Permethrin online, you are basically saving yourself a lot of money, not to mention the fact you only need a couple of minutes to place an order. Permethrin cream 5% should be applied on your skin following the directions. It's important to apply the cream from head to the soles of the feet, paying special attention to skin folds. Once the cream has been applied, you can wash it off after eight to fourteen hours. When applied correctly, Permethrin should not cause any side effects like irritation or burning. You may still be itchy up to 4 weeks after the moment you applied the cream: this does not mean the treatment was unsuccessful. Dead mites remaining in your skin may still cause the symptoms even long after they have been killed. You need to apply the cream only once to kill the mites and prevent their spread, but an additional round of treatment may be required if a reinfestation occurs.

Side Effects

Permethrin is completely safe to be used on your skin, but some side effects are still possible. Side effects mainly have to do with your skin reacting to the cream applied, so there is a chance you may develop irritation, itching, swelling, redness or burning. These side effects tend to go away soon, although you need to watch them closely to make sure they do. Serious allergic reactions to Permethrin are quite rare and highly unlikely.
