Our family Doctor proscribed thinking the rash my daughter had was scabies but no other family member had symtoms well turns out my daughter was allergic to milk products again, well this meds gave her a red rash all over that lasted for 10 days what a mess, to cause little one so much itching and pain for nothing so I recommend making sure your youngester has scabbies before using.
