In a clinical study, the efficacy of gamma benzene hexachloride lotion was evaluated in 50 adult patients in scabies using 2% concentration and in 24 children under 8 years of age using 1% concentration. Use of other scabicidal preparation was 25% benzyl benzoate emulsion for a comparison with second group of patients of the same size. Two applications for 1 day of 2% gamma benzene hexachloride lotion proved to be far more effective a scabicidal drug (68% cure) in adult and 1% gamma benzene hexachloride (91.7% cure) in children compared to benzyl benzoate emulsion.
