Can lyclear cream be mixed with diprobase cream to treat suspected scabies?

I am a hairy individual who needs to use lyclear 5% to treat suspected scabies the dr only provided me with 30mls of cream and I don t think this will cover my body. Could I mix the cream with diprobase or double base cream so it spreads easier? Without compromising the outcome

Hi,

30 ml is the standard dose for one time application in an adult. I don’t think you need to mix it with anything as it will dilute the concentration of permethrin.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
