WHAT IS LYCLEAR DERMAL CREAM?

HOW TO USE LYCLEAR DERMAL CREAM?
Apply the cream to clean, dry and cool skin. Do not take a hot shower or bath immediately before applying the treatment.
TO TREAT SCABIES:
Adults and adolescents over 12 years – Apply up to 30g of cream
Children aged 6 to 12 years – Apply up to 15g of cream (half a tube of 30g)
Children aged 2 months to 5 years – Apply up to 7.5g of cream (a quarter of a tube of 30g)
Take care not to get the cream into the eyes or inside the nose, throat and open wounds. Rinse thoroughly if this occurs.
Cream should be applied to the whole body including the neck, palms of the hands and soles of feet. Please also ensure the areas between fingers and toes, wrists, elbows, armpits, external genitalia and buttocks are also covered by the cream.
TO TREAT CRAB LICE:
Adults over 18 years – Apply up to 30g of the cream. Take care not to get any cream into the eyes, nose, throat and any open wounds. Rinse with water thoroughly if this occurs.
Check any facial hair (beard, moustaches) and eyelashes for presence of live lice and eggs. Cream should be applied to any facial hair, avoiding the eyes. Cream should not be applied to eyelashes as this can cause moderate eye irritation.
Leave the cream on the skin for at least 8 hours or overnight. Avoid bathing, showering or washing during this period. If hands are washed, then make sure cream is re-applied. After 8 hours wash body with soap and water.
Usually, if all steps are followed, a single treatment is sufficient to get rid of the infestation. However, in cases of persistent or renewed infestation, repeat the treatment after 14 days.
Do not smoke or go near naked flames as there is a risk of severe burns.
Please see your doctor if symptoms worsen or do not improve.
