Better not!: First of all, no indications in infants! secondly, there are less toxic medications you can use for babies! but snag a md diagnosis first before using it! would you use cheap oil product on your priceless bentley car? You save a little but it might it might damage the product! regards!

Use as prescribed: It is usually only applied twice, 24 hours apart. The itching of scabies may take a couple of weeks to resolve though.
