Product details

What is Derbac M Liquid

Derbac M Liquid is a liquid emulsion containing the active ingredient Malathion. It is used for the eradication of head lice, pubic lice and their eggs and for the treatment of scabies in adults, the elderly and children aged 6 months and over. As Derbac M does not contain alcohol, it may be more suitable for those with asthma or eczema.

How to use Derbac M Liquid

Always use this medicine exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor if you are not sure. Should a member of your family need treatment check other members of your family for live lice with a detector comb and treat if necessary.

Adults, the elderly and children aged 6 months and over:

For the treatment of head lice:

  • Apply sufficient liquid to dry hair to ensure that no part of the scalp is left uncovered. Work into the hair spreading the liquid evenly from root to tip.
  • 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.
  • The treatment should be repeated after 7 days.

For 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.
  • Leave on for at least 1 hour before washing but preferably leave on overnight. Wash off in the usual manner.
  • The treatment should be repeated after 7 days.

For the treatment of Scabies:

  • Apply to the entire skin surface
  • In adults, it may not be necessary to apply above the neck. If used in children under the age of 2 years, a thin layer of the liquid should be applied to 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 reapplied to those areas immediately.
  • The treatment should be repeated after 7 days.

No special sterilisation of clothing is necessary, ordinary laundering or dry cleaning with hot iron pressing is sufficient.

The infestation is cleared by the treatment. However, the itching and rash may persist for up to 7 days. An anti-irritant cream can be applied if necessary.

Family members and close contacts should also be treated simultaneously.

Children under 6 months: Do not use on children under 6 months unless your doctor tells you to.
