I would suggest you to apply permite 5% cream for the skin and permite 1% lotion for the hair and scalp. Leave it overnight to kill all bugs and parasites.repeat the application to kill all bugs in 10 days.
Take tablet pimozide 2 mg daily at night and tablet claritine 5 mg in the morning.
You will need to get the above medications prescribed from your physician or a Dermatologist

meed tomknow how to remove from clothing, and I herd leaving that cream on to long is unsafe and how long will l havs continuenthisntype of treatment, will it kill the eggs as well and will l have to alienate myself from my family lm a tad bit more curious please help
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 5 years ago.
The best way to remove from clothing is to wash clothes in hot water , after soaking them in salt water.
Application of the cream is only for one night and you have to repeat application only after 10 days. So in this form it is safe .
it kills the new bugs hatching out called larvae / nypmhs.
You will need to ask all other family members also to apply the cream if possible . It would be better to meet the Dermatologist as they will examine the entire skin on check up .
