Noscab® (Permethrin) Cream is a topical scabicidal agent for the treatment of infestation with Sarcoptes scabiei (scabies). Permethrin is a photo stable synthetic pyrethroid that possesses a broad spectrum of insecticidal activity including lice, ticks, fleas, mites and other arthropods and is generally rated as the safest insecticide because of its low primary toxicity.
Scabies: Apply a thin layer of 5% cream into all skin surfaces from the neck to toes. Wash off after 8-14 hr. 30 g of cream is usually sufficient for an average adult.
Head pediculosis: Apply 30-60 ml of 1% lotion (cream rinse) to washed and towel-dried hair and allow to remain for 10 min. Rinse with water. Treatment may be repeated after 7-10 days if lice or nits are detected in hair-scalp junctions.
Pediculosis pubis: Apply sufficient amount of 1% lotion (cream rinse) or 5% cream to thoroughly saturate the pubic area. Allow to remain for 10 min and then rinse with water.
