Leave the medicine on for as long as your doctor recommends.
Wash the medicine off with lukewarm, soapy water, and dry the skin.
Put on clean clothing, and change your bed linens. Wash all clothes, bedding, and towels used in the 3 days before you or your child started treatment. Use hot water, and use the hot cycle in a dryer. Another option is to dry-clean these items. Or seal them in a plastic bag for 3 to 7 days.
Do not apply the scabies medicine more often than is recommended by your doctor.
