Description

Generics:
Crotamiton

Dosage Form: Lotion.

Indications:
Crotamiton lotion is indicated for the treatment of itching and skin irritation caused by, for example sunburn, dry eczema, itchy dermatitis, allergic rashes, hives, nettle rash, chickenpox, insect bites and stings, heat rashes and personal itching. Crotamiton lotion is also indicated for the treatment of pruritus after scabies

Pharmacology:
Crotamiton is a parasitic antiparasitic that kills scabies mites. Crotamiton also produces a counter-irritation, which soothes itching. Crotamiton has a cooling effect when it evaporates off the skin. This cooling impact enables your body’s attention to be diverted away from the itching.

Dosage guideline:
2-3 times daily.

Pruritus: Adults (including the elderly) and children: Apply to the affected area 2-3 times daily. Crotamiton lotion will provide relief from irritation for 6-10 hours after each application. Crotamiton lotion can be used in children. There are no special dosage recommendations in the elderly.

Pruritus after scabies: Adults (including the elderly): After the patient has taken a warm bath, the skin should be well dried and Crotamiton lotion rubbed into the entire body surface (excluding the face and scalp) until no traces of the preparation remain visible on the surface. The application should be repeated once daily, preferably in the evening, for a total of 3-5 days. Depending on the response, special attention should be paid to sites that are particularly susceptibly to infestation by the mites (eg interdigital spaces, wrists, axillae and genitalia). Areas where there is pus formation should be covered with a dressing impregnated with Crotamiton lotion. While the treatment is in progress the patient may take a bath shortly before the next application. After completion of the treatment, a cleansing bath should be taken followed by a change of bed linen and underclothing.

Pruritus after scabies: Children: Application as described for adults but in children under 3 years of age Crotamiton lotion should not be applied more than once a day.

Route of administration: Topically.

Interaction:
Although no pharmacological and/or pharmacokinetic interaction has been observed in animal and human studies involving Nicorandil and beta-blockers, calcium antagonists, digoxin, a combination of digoxin/furosemide, rifampicin, and cimetidine, it is not ruled out that the drug could potentiate the effect of other vasodilators, tricyclic antidepressants, and antihypertensive drugs.

Contraindications:
Acute exudative dermatoses. Crotamiton 10% lotion is contra-indicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to crotamiton. Crotamiton 10% lotion should not be used in or around the eyes since contact with the eyelids may give rise to conjunctival inflammation.

Side Effects:
It’s possible that you’ll have skin irritation or a contact allergy. The preparation should be stopped in such instances.

Pregnancy & Lactation:
Pregnancy Classification C. Crotamiton lotion is not suggested during pregnancy, especially in the first three months, because there is no experience to determine its safety. It’s unclear whether the active ingredient makes it into breast milk. Crotamiton lotion should not be used to the nipple area by nursing moms.
