A Scabies Infection is very unlikely in the mouth and the lips. It is often seen in the area below the neck.
The Scabies infection is seen in all ages and people from all kinds of backgrounds. The mites will not be able to cause a swelling on the lips, but the wrong treatment or an allergic reaction to the treatment can cause swelling in many areas of the body including the lips.
Read through the list of things given below, and update yourself on what is beneficial and what is not -
1. Treatment for Scabies
Most prescription creams have permethrin, a pesticide base. Over the years reports have proven that permethrin might not be successful in complete eradication of the mites and the infestation. Whether a patient would like to expose his body to pesticides is entirely his choice.
2. Reaction to Permethrin
Many patients have complained of an allergic reaction to permethrin based treatments. The common side effects are difficulty in breathing, hives, swelling on the face, throat, tongue and lips. Any of these symptoms should be reported to the doctor right away and medical assistance should be sought.
3. Blood and Pregnant Ladies
Patients should have a general awareness that permethrin is known to enter the blood stream and is also not recommended for nursing mothers with small infants. Certain severe symptoms have also been reported in some cases, namely severe diarrhea, dizziness and vomiting.
4. Look for A Natural Solution
Patients are advised to look for a natural product with no side effects. Dr.Scabies is one such product, which is known to be safe and very effective against scabies. It has an active sulfur component that is successful in eradicating the mites and the infestation.
