Scabies - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : Hi
User : I have a question about the Permethrin cream 5% for scabies. Does it stay in your system after washing it off?
Doctor : it is applied on the skin
User : So after washing it off it won't prevent any more scabie mites from burrowing into your skin again?
Doctor : some part of it will remain even after washing
User : So i don't have to worry too much about catching them again immediately if i didn't clean my house and clothes well enough
cleaning the clothes is very important
User : Well the reason i ask is because we washed our clothes and bedding right after washing the cream off after 12 hours of having it on
