Is the treatment of scabies hazardous?


, : Is the treatment of scabies hazardous?. Journal of the Royal College of General Practitioners 38(315): 468-469

Lindane is generally considered the treatment of choice for scabies (caused by Sarcoptes scabiei), and its toxic effect profile is well understood. However, evidence is accumulating that lindane can be toxic to the central nervous system and may be associated with aplastic anaemia. General practitioners should prescribe scabicides with caution for certain at-risk groups (children and babies) and give warnings regarding their potential toxicity.
