Welcome to Skabi-Rid website

Skabi-Rid is a new treatment for scabies. Scabies is a skin condition that affects more than 300 million people worldwide annually.

Treating the forgotten scourge Skabi-Rid is a newly registered skin lotion for the treatment of Scabies (Sarcoptes Scabiei). It contains permethrin, a most effective and safe application of natural origin. On application less than 2% is absorbed through the skin and is quickly detoxified by ester hydrolysis.

By means of a clinical trial conducted by QdotPharma, it was proven that this application was more effective, had fewer side effects and needed one application versus multiple applications of existing treatments. Permethrin 5% application is on the WHO EDL (Essential Drug List) and worldwide considered the drug of choice and an essential drug in the treatment of scabies.

Unlike other scabies treatments, Skabi-Rid only has to be applied once. The duration of action is longer than other products in its class and it stays on the skin longer. One application at night time that has to be washed off in eight to twelve hours (next morning) is enough to cure scabies permanently. The vanishing lotion is applied to cover all skin from the ears to the soles of the feet and applies easily. Washing off with normal soap and water is easy as the lotion is non fatty. Permethrin is a synthetic chemical similar to the natural insecticide pyrethrum which comes from the chrysanthemum plant. Little amounts are absorbed through the skin (less than 2%) and is quickly ester hydrolysed to the inactive metabolites. It has been used in extreme cases of scabies in babies as little as two weeks with no ill effects. Skin irritation is rare and toxicity is much lower than lindane, benzyl-benzoate and monosulfiram. Permethrin 5% is the drug of choice for treatment of scabies. With a single application, Skabi-Rid has been proven more effective than multiple applications of benzyl-benzoate, the standard treatment of scabies up to now. It also has a lower relapse rate and prevents re infestation as it remains present on the skin for several days after initial application.
