Eurax Directions To Use
Shake the Eurax lotion well before use. Apply a thin layer of the cream or lotion to all body parts from the neck down to the soles of your feet (scabies does not usually infect the head). Apply the medication to dry skin and rub it in well. Leave the medication on for 24 hours, then, without washing, apply a second dose. Thoroughly wash off the medication 48 hours after the last application.
A bath or shower is NOT recommended before applying Eurax cream.
Thoroughly rub the cream into all skin surfaces, going from your head down to the soles of your feet, because it is important to apply Eurax everywhere on your body, not just where the rash is. Apply Eurax between fingers and toe creases, in the folds of the wrist and waistline, in the cleft of the buttocks, on the genitals, and in the belly button. Use a toothpick to apply the medication beneath your fingernails and toenails. Nails should be cut short. If you have little or no hair, or you are applying the cream to an infant or young child, make sure you rub Eurax into the neck, scalp, hairline, temples, and forehead.
It is important to treat every person that comes in close contact with you since the infection may spread to these persons.
Eurax Warnings and Side Effects
Do not use more Eurax than is recommended. Do not take Eurax by mouth. Avoid application to the mouth, nose, or eyes.

Clothing or bedding that cannot be washed in this way should be dry cleaned.
Practice good hygeine to prevent infection of others. Wash your hands, scrub your fingernails and shower often. Every day change and launder linens and undergarments. Scrub toilets often and keep floors clean.
