DESCRIPTION:
SCABISIN contains Gamma benzene hexachloride also known as lindane. It is the gamma isomer hexachlorocyclohexane and acts as an antiscabies agent.
 
 
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
SCABISIN is an organochloride insecticide that exerts its parasiticidal effect by being directly absorbed into the parasite (primarily lice or scabies) and their ova. Blockage of the GABA-gated chloride channel reduces neuronal inhibition, which leads to hyperexcitation of the central nervous system, resulting in convulsions and death.
 
INDICATIONS:
For the treatment of infestations with scabies (itch), head lice (pediculosis capitis), crab lice (phthirus pubis).
 
CONTRAINDICATIONS:
Very young infants, patients with extensively excoriated skin, patients hypersensitive to gamma benzene hexachloride.
 
SIDE EFFECTS:
Burning sensations, itching, dryness and rash.
 
WARNING:
Total body application can be dangerous. It should be used with caution, especially in children.
 
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
SCABIES (ITCH): Apply SCABISIN over the affected area of the body. Leave the application for 12 hours (or overnight) and take a bath. Repeat the treatment 3-4 times at an interval of 24 hours. SCABISIN should not enter the mouth or eyes.
 
PEDICULOSIS:
Apply SCABISIN well into the hair. Leave the application for atleast 24 hours. Wash the medication with shampoo and water. Generally a single application serves the purpose but in some cases treatment have to be repeated one more time.
 
PRECAUTIONS:
Do not apply to broken skin and excessively raw areas. Avoid contact with eyes.
 
STORAGE:
Store in a cool, dry and dark place.
