This medication is employed in the treatment of scabies, a skin infection caused by mites that burrow into the skin. The irritation triggered by these mites results in intense itching and the formation of small bumps or blisters filled with fluid or pus. Crotamiton functions by eliminating the mites responsible for scabies. It also helps alleviate the itching associated with scabies and other skin conditions. Crotamiton belongs to two classes of drugs: scabicides, which are substances that kill scabies mites, and antipruritics, which are medications that relieve itching.

Uses and Dosage

This medication is intended for external use only and should not be ingested. Avoid applying crotamiton on the face, eyes, mouth, vagina, and any skin that is inflamed, raw, or oozing fluid.

If you are using the lotion, shake the bottle thoroughly before use.

For scabies treatment, begin by taking a bath or shower before applying this medication. Gently remove scaly or crusted skin by rubbing, then dry with a towel. Massage a thin layer of the cream or lotion into all skin from the chin down to the toes, including skin folds/creases, between the fingers and toes, and on the soles of the feet. Trim fingernails short and apply the medication under the nails, as mites often reside there. A toothbrush may be used to apply the medication under the fingernails, but discard it immediately after use and do not use the same toothbrush in the mouth to prevent poisoning.

Reapply the medication after 24 hours. Change clothing, towels, and bed sheets the morning after each application. Launder all items that have been used in the 3 days before treatment and after each application in hot water and dry in a hot dryer or dry-clean to eliminate all mites and prevent their return. Items that cannot be washed or dry-cleaned should be kept away from the body for at least 72 hours.

Take a bath 48 hours after the last application to remove the medication from your skin.

For treating itching skin conditions other than scabies, gently massage a thin layer into the affected areas until the medication is fully absorbed. Repeat as needed, following your doctor’s instructions, typically 2 to 3 times a day.

After scabies treatment, persistent itching may continue for several weeks. Consult your doctor for additional medications that may help alleviate the itching. Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
