KWELLADA P LOTION (PERMETHRIN)

Kwellada P Lotion Description

Kwellada P Lotion contains 5% Permethrin and is prescribed to treat scabies. Permethrin is a man-made insecticide that is based on natural pyrethrum (sourced from a species of the Chrysanthemum flowers). If you are experiencing intense itching, red bumps or blisters, and dark lines across your skin, see your doctor so you can be tested for scabies. This could involve a skin scraping that can be examined under a microscope and a visual exam for dark lines across your skin that usually indicates a burrow where the female scabies mite will lay her eggs. The sooner you begin treatment for scabies, the lower the risk that others will also become infected.

Kwellada P Lotion Targets the Nervous System of the Scabies Mite

Once applied topically as directed by your doctor, the scabies mite will become affected through contact with Kwellada P Lotion while it is on the skin’s surface to mate (after which the male dies). The female feeds on your skin cells as she burrows into your skin to lay her eggs. As contact is made, Permethrin targets the mites’ nervous system so it becomes hypersensitive to stimuli from the sensory organs.

The eventual result of the effects of Permethrin on the mite is repetitive nerve impulses, an inhibition of certain enzymes, and a rise in the body temperature. This kills the scabies mite and the eggs. A second application of Kwellada P Lotion is required to ensure any eggs that have survived and hatched after the first application are killed.

Conditions Treated by Kwellada P Lotion

The scabies mite (Sarcoptes scabiei) is extremely small and can appear as a tiny speck to the naked eye. The itching and rash you experience is not due to the mite itself, but is an immune response to their saliva, the eggs, or their feces under your skin. Without a host, mites can only live for 2-3 days and it takes about 10-15 minutes for you to catch scabies through direct skin-to-skin contact. The average person with a scabies infection will have a dozen or so mites present.

People residing in care homes, prisons, and day care facilities are more likely to be infected with scabies due to the close quarters. Scabies are indiscriminate. They do not care how much money you make, where you live, or who you are; you are a potential home, breeding ground, and a food source.

Before You Apply Kwellada P Lotion

Ask your doctor if Kwellada P Lotion is safe to apply if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and provide a list of any OTC and Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal preparations and vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Kwellada P Lotion will alter the effects or quality of your other medications. Once applied, Kwellada P Lotion should stay on for 8 to 14 hours, after which time you can wash or shower it off. Reapplication should be carried out about 24 hours after washing the Kwellada P Lotion off.

Kwellada P Lotion Precautions and Proper Use

Make sure everyone living in the household is treated. Permethrin can be lethal to cats so avoid contact with your feline pets after applying Kwellada P Lotion. Avoid close contact such as sexual intercourse until after at least the first application of Kwellada P Lotion to reduce the risk of infecting your partner if you do not reside together in the same house.
