In brief: Pregnancy & scabies
According to the organization of teratology information specialists, many pregnant women are prescribed pyrethrin or permethrin, which is derived from chrysanthemums, to treat scabies.
According to otis, these medications are not absorbed into the body the same way other, more harsh scabies medications are. Take the medication as directed by your doctor.
