In brief: Scabies, lice
Lindane is now a second line treatment for scabies caused by a mite or lice.
First line is Elimite (permethrin) which is safer and very effective.

In brief: Lindane Lotion
Lindane medications have been used in healthcare for more than 50 years.
They are currently approved by the food and drug administration (fda) for the second-line treatment of scabies and lice, meaning they are only prescribed when first-line therapies have failed or cannot be tolerated.
