Description

Acticin Cream (Permethrin) is used to treat head lice and scabies. Permethrin is an anti-parasite medication. Permethrin is in a class of medications called scabicides and pediculicides. It works by killing lice and mites.

Doctor's prescription is required to use this medicine.

Always use Acticin (Permethrin) as directed by your physician.

Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets.

Acticin (Permethrin) comes as a cream to apply to the skin. Permethrin cream is usually applied to the skin in one treatment, but occasionally a second treatment is necessary.

To treat scabies:

• Clean and dry the skin. Apply a thin layer of this medicine to all body parts from the neck down to the soles of the feet. Rub in completely. Leave the medicine on your skin for 8 to 14 hours, then wash it off completely.

• When using Acticin on an infant, also apply the medicine to the scalp, temples, and forehead. Avoid applying near the eyes, nose, mouth, or genitals.

• If your condition does not clear up within 14 days, apply Acticin again.

Do not use more or less of it or use it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Cautions

Always use Acticin exactly as directed by your doctor.

Before using Acticin, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it or any other medications. Tell your doctor or pharmacist about your medical history. Tell your doctor about all the other prescription and nonprescription medications you are taking.

Acticin should not be used on a child younger than 2 months old.

Tell your doctor if you have or have ever had skin conditions or sensitivities.

Do not take by mouth. This medicine is for use only on the skin.

Do not apply to open cuts or wounds. If the medicine gets in your eyes or mouth, rinse with water.

NOTE: This medicine is only for you. Do not share this medicine with others.

  • rash

Some side effects can be serious. If you experience any of these symptoms, call your doctor immediately:

  • infected or pus filled areas of the skin or scalp area

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects.

FAQs

What happens if I miss a dose?

Since Acticin is usually needed only once, you are not likely to be on a dosing schedule. Wait at least 7 days before using a second application.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line if you think you have used too much, or if anyone has accidentally swallowed the medication.

Where should I keep my medicine?

Keep out of reach of children.

Store the medicine at room temperature, away from heat, moisture, and direct light.  

Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.

What should I avoid while using Acticin?

Rinse with water if Acticin gets in your eyes.

Lice and scabies infections are highly contagious. Avoid sexual or intimate contact with others until your lice or scabies infection has cleared up. Avoid sharing hair brushes, combs, hair accessories, hats, clothing, bed linens, and other articles of personal use.

Avoid using other medications on the areas you treat with Acticin, unless your doctor tells you to.
