Gamma Benzene Hexachloride
SCABISIN contains Gamma benzene hexachloride also known as lindane. It is the gamma isomer hexachlorocyclohexane and acts as an anti scabies 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.
For the treatment of infestations with scabies (itch), head lice (pediculosis capitis), crab lice (Phthirus pubis).
Very young infants, patients with extensively excoriated skin, patients hypersensitive to gamma benzene hexachloride.
Burning sensations, itching, dryness and rash.
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.
Apply SCABISIN well into the hair. Leave the application for at least 24 hours. Wash the medication with shampoo and water. Generally, a single application serves the purpose but in some cases treatment has to be repeated one more time.
Do not apply to broken skin and excessively raw areas. Avoid contact with eyes.
Store in a cool, dry and dark place.
