What are the usual treatments for scabies in children?

Scabies. The most common treatment is a topical medication called elimite (permethrin). Some of us like to use an oral medication called ivermectin.
Permethrin. Permethrin cream by prescription. Sometimes you have to use it again after 2 weeks, and make sure you wash all used linens and treat exposed people. Rarely the might need pills to cure it. It is contagious.
