Gamma Benzene Hexachloride & Cetrimide Lotion – A combination of Gamma Benzene Hexachloride and Cetrimide in this lotion belongs to a class of drugs known as antiparasitic drugs and topical antiseptic respectively. This lotion is generally used to treat and prevent scabies; a skin infection caused by mites and Pediculosis; the infestation of lice in the scalp. It is manufactured and delivered with the brand name Scabnyl by Alpha Drugs.

Gamma Benzene Hexachloride, also known as lindane, is an insecticide that is used to treat scabies and lice infestations on the scalp. It is antiparasite that works by killing the lice, mites, and their eggs by penetrating the skin. Cetrimide is an antiseptic that is used to treat wounds, minor burns, cuts, wounds, insect bites, and protects against infection. Due to its antifungal, antiseptic, and antibacterial properties, Cetrimide damages the cell sheath of the bacteria and ultimately results in the death of bacteria. Together they effectively treat scabies in patients who could not tolerate the first-line therapies.
