To treat scabies:
Make sure your skin is clean and dry. Apply a thin layer of A-Scabs topical to all body parts from the neck down to the soles of the feet. Rub in completely.
Leave the medication on for 8 to 14 hours, then wash it off completely.
When using A-Scabs topical on an infant, also apply the medication to the scalp, temples, and forehead.
Avoid applying close to the eyes, nose, mouth, or genitals.
If your condition does not clear up within 14 days after applying A-Scabs topical, use another application.
To treat head lice:
When using the shampoo, apply it to dry hair only. Cover all hair completely and leave the shampoo in for 10 minutes. Then work into a lather using warm water and rinse out thoroughly.
Use a towel or washcloth to protect your eyes while the medication is left in your hair. Use a second application if lice are still seen 7 days after your first treatment.
You may also use a nit comb to remove lice eggs from the hair. Your hair should be slightly damp while using a nit comb. Work on only one section of hair at a time, combing through 1- to 2-inch strands from the scalp to the ends. Rinse the nit comb often during use.
Place removed nits into a sealed plastic bag and throw it into the trash to prevent re-infestation. Check the scalp again daily to make sure all nits have been removed.
