Lyderm Cream 30g is great for treating scabies, a contagious infection caused by the parasitic mite Sarcoptes scabiei. In order to prevent the spreading of infection, Lyderm Cream attacks and kills the scabies mite. Used over time, Lyderm Cream relieves the body from the symptoms of the infection.
Scabies is caused by the scabies mite, which burrows into the skin causing itching. This can result in an allergic reaction leading to rashes, small red bumps on limbs and trunk, and nodules in the groin or armpit. By interfering with the parasiteŠ—Ès nervous system, Lyderm Cream causes the mite to become paralysed. After the mite is dead symptoms of the infection may continue for up to 4 weeks before healing completely.
