From this study (3 months ago):
histiocytoma seems to have occurred. My biopsy says they are bug bites. But, they will not heal, even 5 months after first appearing. They are itching and inflamed.
From this study (7 months ago):
I had scabies and was prescribed the scabies cream with pyrethrin, I cannot remember the name but it was a few years ago and it was in the UK. It said to apply to all family members. Only my father agreed to use it. All body covered.
My scabies cleared up with multiple applications and after frequent recurrences even 6 months later.
My father developed pemphygoid on his hands. He was 65 yrs old. I was 25.
I believe the pemphygoid was due to the cream.
From this study (11 months ago):
Developed neuropathy in hands and feet after treating three times with permethrin
