Scabicide & dryness: Scabies treatments often contain a high percentage of alcohol which can be very drying to the skin, especially sensitive tissues of the face and genitals. Hypoallergenic soaps and lotions which are pH balanced will help the skin recover more quickly, and reduce the itching that can last up to two weeks after treatment.
