|Typical Brand Names:
Permethrin is a synthetic chemical that has a broad spectrum of insecticidal activity. It is taken up by insects through their mouth, airways or their surface coverings.
Permethrin works by binding to a particular site (sodium channels) on nerve endings. This leads to a complex series of reactions in various organs, leading to paralysis of the nervous system, inhibition of metabolism and ultimately death of the insect.
This preparation is used to treat skin infections with mites (scabies) or crab lice.
