Medicinal Benefits

PSCAB LOTION 100ML is mostly used to treat parasitic infections. It targets eggs, lice, and mites. It releases chemicals known as pyrethrins which act on the nervous system. It inactivates the nerve membrane and paralyzes the insects, eventually killing them. It can also kill the nits and eggs of the insect. 

Directions for Use

Apply a prescribed amount of dose on the affected area. Clean and dry the affected area before applying the medication. In the case of pediculosis, apply the drug and leave it for 10 minutes. Then, wash and rinse your hair with warm water. If there is still head lice infestation after 7 or more days, repeat the treatment. In the case of scabies, apply the drug and leave it for about 8 to 14 hours. Then, clean the area properly with water. If the infection still persists after 14 days or more, repeat the treatment.
