Side Effects

Occasionally irritation of the skin or contact allergy may occur. In such cases the preparation should be discontinued.


Crotol Hc is an antiparasitic that is toxic to the scabies mite. Crotol Hc also relieves itching by producing what is called a counter-irritation. As crotamiton evaporates from the skin, it produces a cooling effect. This cooling effect helps to divert your body's attention away from the itching.
