How Elimite can help you
Suffering from scabies can be embarrassing, so Elimite is a drug that is often sought after to treat the condition. Scabies are tiny parasites that can get into the skin from prolonged contact with an affected person, so it is necessary to seek treatment as soon as a diagnosis is made to prevent the condition from spreading further. This is why Elimite can help.
Scabies are lice that live on the body and burrow under the skin to lay eggs. Normally the pain and discomfort of the human is caused by a reaction to the byproducts of the lice rather than the lice themselves. The visual symptoms are small red bumps on the skin much like a rash, and although the lice themselves are very small, their location on the body can normally be pinpointed by where the marks are appearing.
The treatment of scabies with Elimite is easy and only requires a few applications. It is very effective at treating scabies and is regularly prescribed by doctors to treat the condition. It is available with prescription and is regularly suggested as a treatment for mites by medical professionals. The cream is applied onto the skin directly, and once the whole surface of the body has been covered with the cream, this is then left on for eight to fourteen hours, normally overnight to fit in with the person’s daily schedule. Once this time has passed, the individual is instructed to take a shower or bath to completely remove the medication. It will not be completely absorbed into the skin as it treats the mites from the skin’s surface and so excess will need to be washed off.
While the Elimite cream is very effective, there may be other necessary steps to take to ensure that scabies does not linger on the body or around the living environment. The individual will also normally be instructed to wash all bedding and fabrics around the living quarters to make sure there is minimal chance of re-infection once the cream dosage has been fully administered. Clothes should be thoroughly washed and dried before being allowed back in contact with the body, and pets and other people within the house may need to be treated at the same time, although this is something that should be discussed with the doctor first.
There are some possible side effects of Elimite, and so the use of this cream should be thoroughly discussed with a doctor before it is used. These side effects can include (but are not limited to) soreness or swelling of the skin, rashes and a general uncomfort during treatment. These are very rare side effects, and most people report nothing out of the expected while using the treatment. There is a slight risk of other side effects if the Elimite cream is used incorrectly, such as being swallowed or getting in the eyes and around the genital areas. This can lead to dizziness, headaches and vomiting, and if this incorrect usage occurs it is advised to call a medical professional immediately for further instruction.
On the whole, Elimite is a brilliant treatment for the discomfort and pain caused by scabies and lice. Once treated, the condition should disappear completely, and no further treatment is required unless there is a re-infection of the individual with scabies or lice. If this does occur, another dose of Elimite may be used with the appropriate prescription from the doctor. Normally, however, most people find that just using one treatment of Elimite helps get rid of their scabies completely so that they can be free of the discomfort and pain caused by the condition.
