Aims: To study the side effect profile of permethrin 5% cream in infants between 2-6 months of age. Methods: 30 infants of 2-6 months of age having scabies were selected & were given single night application (6 – 8 hrs) of permethrin 5% cream. Results: Out of 30 cases, only 3 (10%) cases had mild to moderate irritation. no case was seen having any neurological or any other cutaneous side effects on six months of follow up. Discussion: Topical permethrin (5% cream) is a safe and effective scabicide in children and is recommended as a first-line therapy for infants.
