Instructions

This medication is to be applied to the skin. To use:

  • apply the medication all over your body, from your neck to your toes;
  • leave the medication on for 12 hours, then rinse it off thoroughly.
This product may be irritating and may actually INCREASE itching during the first few days before it produces the desired effect.

Do not let this product come in contact with your eyes or lips. Do not apply it on skin that has been cut or scratched.

This medication is typically used as a single application. It is to be used once and then again 7 days later.

To avoid re-infection, thoroughly clean and vacuum the entire house. Wash the bedding and clothing of the person who has been treated. Also, wash all used bath towels and dry them in the dryer for at least 30 minutes.

Side Effects

In addition to its desired action, this medication may cause some side effects, notably:

  • occasionally, it may cause stinging and/or itching;
  • when used, it may cause a temporary burning sensation.

Each person may react differently to a treatment. If you think this medication may be causing side effects (including those described here, or others), talk to your doctor or pharmacist. He or she can help you to determine whether or not the medication is the source of the problem.

Storage

As with most medications, this product should be stored at room temperature. Store it in a secure location where it will not be exposed to excessive heat, moisture or direct sunlight. Make sure that any leftover portion is disposed of safely.

General Notes

When meeting with any health professional, it is important for you to share the following information:

  • Your medical history and allergies (medication, food, or other);
  • If you smoke, are pregnant, are planning a pregnancy, or are breastfeeding;
  • The names of all the medications you take, whether you take them regularly or once in a while, including over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and natural health products.
It is also strongly recommended that you keep an up-to-date list of all the medications you take and carry it with you at all times. This could be useful if you have to see a health professional or need emergency care.
