Derbac M Liquid Cutaneous Emulsion

Derbac-M Liquid is a gentle treatment ideal for use where asthma or sensitive skin is a problem.

The active ingredient of Derbac-M is malathion 0.5% w/w, an insecticide that kills parasites by effecting their metabolic processes.

Derbac-M Liquid is suitable for adults, the elderly and children aged 6 months and above. Infants under six months should only be treated with Derbac-M Liquid under medical supervision.

Directions

For adults, the elderly and children aged 6 months and over:
Treatment of head lice

  • Apply sufficient liquid to dry hair to ensure that no part of the hair is uncovered. Work into the hair, spreading the liquid evenly from the roots to the tips.
  • Leave the hair to dry naturally in a warm but well ventilated room.
  • After 12 hours, or the next day if preferred, shampoo hair in the normal way
  • Rinse the hair and comb whilst wet to remove dead lice and eggs (nits) using a nit comb.
  • Wash hands after application.
  • The treatment should be repeated after 7 days.
Treatment of crab (pubic) lice
  • Apply to the entire skin surface.
  • Pay particular attention to all hairy areas including beards and moustaches. Avoid any other areas above the neck.

  • Wash hands after application.
  • The treatment should be repeated after 7 days.
Treatment of scabies

  • In adults it may not be necessary to apply above the neck. If used in children under two years, a thin film of the liquid should be applied to the scalp, face and ears, avoiding the eyes and mouth.
  • Do not wash off or bathe for 24 hours. If hands or any other parts must be washed during this period, the treatment must be re-applied immediately.
