Answered questions

Can you use eurax cream or germolene antiseptic cream for dry skin?
Ive got both of those in my medical draw Asked by Boyd Colflesh 4 months ago.

Eurax would be good for dry skin. Germolene wouldn't be the best choice. I'd go with Eurax. Make sure you're not allergic to the ingredients, before you apply it. Answered by Antoine Farrer 4 months ago.


Can you use eurax for a yeast infection???
also what is the direction for use if you can use it Asked by Carolina Saum 4 months ago.

No, It wont work. Eurax is for scabies and things like that. You need to go back and find an antifungal cream. Are you in the UK? You need to go to the chemist (or drugstore if you are american) and find a topical antifungal cream. Good luck! Answered by Isaac Vimont 4 months ago.

I'm using Eurax for Scabies, when do I wash the clothes & bedding?
Do I wash everything on the 2nd of 3rd day since Eurax is left on for 3 days and before putting on the 2nd application of Eurax or or after the 2nd application. The directions aren't specific. Asked by Bronwyn Oler 4 months ago.

Wash everything in HOT water immediately, then AGAIN on the third day, then AGAIN a few days after that, just to be sure!! Answered by Forest Densley 4 months ago.

Germolene is an antiseptic cream and effective in Bacterial infection, Eurax is Anti scabies None of these have any effect on yeast infection or fungal infection There r many type of fungal infection but every fungal infection is named yeast infection. No body can find out which fungus is this without culture of Vaginal Swab. Answered by Lai Posthuma 4 months ago.

I have been infested of scabies before, the doctor has given me permethrin for the first night to apply then it should be followed with Crotamiton (Eurax lotion) on the next 3 nights. She gave me antihistamine (Telfast) and citirizine (zyrtec) for oral medications. i have been cured but after 4 months i have been infected again. How can scabies be obtained? and why is it i am the only one infected at home, when i have been sharing clothes with my younger brother and most of the times my younger sister plays with me. and could scabies even affect the face or the hair? Answered by Eugene Cherry 4 months ago.

Most cases of scabies are completely eradicated with a single overnight application of 5% permethrin cream (Elimite cream), available by prescription. It is the preferred agent to treat scabies all the way down to 2 months of age (more than 30% of scabies are now resistant to Eurax lotion, an earlier treatment). Elimite should be massaged into the skin from the scalp all the way to the soles of the feet. It should be thoroughly rinsed off 8-14 hours later. All family members, baby-sitters, and close physical contacts should be treated. Usually a 2-oz tube will treat one adult. Lindane is an effective alternative treatment, but I don't recommend its use. It works and it is cheaper, but it is also far more toxic. Answered by Edison Zurcher 4 months ago.

Scabies is not usually above the neck unless you are a young kid, so it is possible you have an allergic rash or a form of eczema. It would be good to be re-evaluated by a physician. If no one in your home has scabies and you've been in close contact you may not have that. If you do have scabies and it has been confirmed, then it's possible that an environment you are in (ie work or school) keeps passing it back and forth. Scabies don't live off a human host for more than a few days so it wouldn't just be something in your home you touched 4 months later. Meditator Answered by Kacey Trell 4 months ago.

Unless your boyfriend is also treated, using a medication preventively will not work. He also needs to have treatment, and all bedding needs to be washed and put in a hot dryer. You should also iron the seams open in pillow cases and the like to make certain you find and eliminate all those little buggers. You can get a cream from the doctor, maybe even at the pharmacy without a prescription. It is not bad to use. Rub on for 12 hours, shower off, leave off for 12 hours, then repeat the process. The cream is not greasy nor gross. Without treatment, the itching becomes unbearable, and you will notice red streaks across your skin where these parasites are burrowing beneath your skin. Again, both of you get treated. I had them twice, as I worked in a place where we dealt with a lot of children. The itching may continue even after the scabies are gone, because your skin will be irritated. Lubriderm or some other moisturising cream will help. Get treatment. Without it, it will only get worse. Generally scabies do not go above the neck, but they like it in protected folds of the skin like under your breasts and between your fingers and toes. Good luck. Answered by Stephani Ghelfi 4 months ago.

I hardly think that permithrin can treat scabies completely and you have to realize this is pesticides you are putting on your skin. There is a very strong natural formula that completely rids scabies for good. It's a natural medicine and the whole process is very soothing. It's called Dr.scabies and very effective. Answered by Sally Oborny 4 months ago.

Obviously, you weren't totally cured last time. Probably the little buggers were dormant for a while & are now back w/full force. You need to be treated again and this time, ask all these questions of the doctor including if anything needs to be done in the household. I'm not sure where this exactly comes from and it's possible it could be in some surroundings that you are not aware of. Answered by Lori Ruckel 4 months ago.

Damn I'm sorry to hear you have scabies because I caught it once and it sucks. I shaved my legs and I scratched the razor bumps with my dirty finger nails and BOOM scabies! I took this lotion that the dermatologist prescribed me,it was just one tube though so your derm sounds like a idiot go to another one and wash your clothes, but go to another one ASAP sorry I forgot the name of the lotion I wish I remembered it but just go it's supposed to go away in like 3 days be careful with your siblings. Answered by Susanne Floerchinger 4 months ago.

Ok get the cream your doctor gave you again you apply it to your whole body head to toe everywhere do it when you come home so it has a night till next day ya shower also I'd wash the your clothing you were waring and you bedding also. Answered by Joseph Forsch 4 months ago.


My blue tick coonhound is very itchy all the time. Why? What can I do to help her?
Asked by Lilian Alfieri 4 months ago.

eurax lotion stops itching but you need to find out what its from. food allergies are more common than we think. hypoallergenic food may help. do bring her to the vet Answered by Tanna Whelan 4 months ago.

Can't say why for sure.... Check for fleas. If no fleas just give her a bath. Sometimes just dirty skin makes them scratch and carry on. If she continues having issues you might want to take her to a vet. Try the reasonable stuff first to save yourself a vet bill. You can get any number of shampoo's for animals but you can use Suave with Aloe and save a lot of money with the same effect. Use the one application down the back for fleas and double check for ticks and if found remove them and then bathe her. Answered by Hazel Esmiol 4 months ago.

it could be fleas, you would see them, mites, mange, or allergies. its best to take her to the vet so if its mange or something they can treat her. Answered by Minta Lopp 4 months ago.

I use one from Tesco Eurax Answered by Melita Presley 4 months ago.

Ice the bites and dab on a cotton ball soaked in ammonia. some thing about better 0.5 and babies ammonia works. you should purchase it in a touch bottle on the food market contained in the cleansing area. There are also some medicated swabs said as 'sting alleviation' which matches extremely properly, too. you would possibly want to get some take advantage of taking an anti-histamine like Benadryl. stay cool, take a funky bath/bathe. solid luck, I actual have a lot of sympathy having had stopped counting at one hundred twenty bites one time.
