Elimite is used for the treatment of scabies.
Massage the skin from the head to the soles of the feet with Elimite. 30 grams should be sufficient for an application. Wash the cream off after 8 to 14 hours. Do not apply to open cuts or wounds. This could cause too much medication to be absorbed by your body. Talk to your doctor before taking this medicine if you are breast-feeding. Elimite may pass into breast-milk.
Do not apply this medication to the eyes, nose, or mouth. Use water to wash it off immediately if this happens. You should avoid sexual contact with others until the infection has been cured.
Elimite is applied only once so it is unlikely for you to miss a dose.
