Lyclear Dermal Cream is an effective treatment for Scabies and Genital Lice (Crabs). It contains Permethrin 5%, a chemical with a broad range of insecticidal properties.
Permethrin belongs to a group of medicines called the pyrethroids which are anti-parasitic agents. Permethrin is a synthetic chemical that has a broad spectrum of insecticidal activity. It is taken up by insects through their mouth, airways or their surface coverings.
Permethrin works by binding to a particular site (sodium channels) on nerve endings. This leads to a complex series of reactions in various organs, leading to paralysis of the nervous system, inhibition of metabolism and ultimately death of the insect.
This preparation is used to treat skin infections with mites (scabies) or crab lice. Permethrin Cream is used to treat and prevent pubic lice and scabies that can cause irritation, itching, burning and discomfort. Permethrin belongs to a group of medicines called the pyrethroids which are anti-parasitic agents.

Warnings when using Lyclear Dermal Cream Permethrin 5% W/W:
You should carefully read all product packaging and labels prior to use
When you order this item it is subject to review and approval by one of our pharmacists. Our pharmacists may remove an item from your order if they feel it isn't suitable for you, or in order to comply with UK legislation.
Lyclear Dermal Cream Permethrin 5% W/W - No interactions are known. The treatment of eczematous-like reactions with corticosteroids should be withheld prior to treatment with the Cream, as there is a risk of exacerbating the scabies infestation by reducing the immune response to the mite. The likelihood of interactions between the two treatments leading to potentiated adverse reactions or reduced efficacy is, however, small.
Work wells but is expensive. Tried also another one and this one was more effective
I had been pestered for some time by some type of microscopic mite which, having a sensitive skin, was a positive nightmare. Having researched the problem I could not relate it to anything including scabies -nor had I put myself in a position where scabies might have occurred and my home and person was always clean. To further exacerbate the difficulty I was reluctant to discuss the problem with my GP. Then a friend told me of Chemist Direct and I ordered Lyclear Dermal Cream as the only product that seemed to address my problem. It`s now three weeks later and I`m delighted with the result. To see the end of this pestilence is most certainly well worth the cost of this cream and the delivery was quick with discreet packaging. Many thanks.
