The frequency of use for permethrin cream depends on the condition being treated. If you are using permethrin cream to treat scabies, you should typically apply it once a day. It is usually recommended to apply the cream before bedtime and leave it on for 8-14 hours before washing it off.
If you are using permethrin cream to treat head lice, you should typically apply it once, and then repeat the application 7-10 days later.
In either case, it’s important to follow the instructions of your healthcare provider or the product label carefully to ensure proper use and avoid any potential side effects.
