PERMETHRINE IS A GREAT OPTION BUT AS IT IS NOT AVAILABLE THERE- ALTERNATIVES ARE-
1.30 grams of cream of lindane, applied from the neck down and washed off after approximately eight hours.
2.Ivermectin, an oral medication, is an antiparasitic medication that has also been shown to be an effective scabicide. 200 micrograms per kilogram body weight as a single dose, followed by a repeat dose two weeks later.
3.Crotamiton lotion 10% and cream 10% (Eurax, Crotan) is another drug that has been approved for the treatment of scabies in adults, but it is not approved for use in children. However, treatment failures have been documented with the use of crotamiton.
4.Antihistamines, such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl), can be useful in helping provide relief from itching.
