What is Lindane Lotion?
Lindane Lotion is a medicine that is used to treat scabies. It kills scabiesand their eggs. Scabies are very small bugs that crawl under your skin, layeggs, and cause severe itching. Lindane Lotion goes through your skin andkills the scabies and their eggs. Lindane Lotion is used only after safermedicines have not made your scabies go away. The only time Lindane
Lotion is used first is when someone cannot use safer medicines, which

may include permethrin and crotamiton.
Lindane Lotion is mainly for adults and children who weigh at least
110 pounds. If you weigh less than 110 pounds, use Lindane Lotion
only if your doctor thinks it is really needed. People who weigh less

than 110 pounds and the elderly have higher chances for side effects
because more lindane may go through their skin.
