Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

We are here to help you.

  • Best treatment for pubic lice (crab louse) is to apply Permethrin lotion (Nix) to be applied over the affected area for overnight and to wash it the next morning. Continue the same for seven days.

Revert back after seven days to an internal medicine physician online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/internal-medicine-physician

Hello doctor,

Is Permethrin lotion available easily in market? Or do I need to get it through prescription?
