Summary of Changes for the SPC for Lyclear 5% w/w Dermal Cream

Type II variation project edge findings

 

 

Addition of the following statement to section 4.2 Posology and Method of Administration:

 

Keep this medicine out of sight and reach of children.

 

 

Addition of the following information to section 4.2 Posology and Method of Administration, Treatment of Scabies:

 

Use in adults and children over 2 months of age: -

In view of the great individual variability in body area and skin types precise recommendations are not possible. Children under 2 years: Do not use the product without medical supervision.

 

The product should not be applied to the head and face.

 

Use in the Elderly:

In the elderly Lyclear Dermal Cream should be used as directed for adults and children over 12 years but should also include the head, neck, scalp and ears.  Care must be taken to avoid applying Lyclear Dermal Cream to areas close to the eyes. Patients over 70 years should be treated under medical supervision.

 

 

Addition of the following statements to section 4.2 Posology and Method of Administration, treatment of Crab Lice:

 

Children under 18 should seek medical advice before using the product.

 

Patients over 70 years should be treated under medical supervision.

 

 

Addition of the following information to section 4.4 Special Warnings and Precautions for Use:

 

Lyclear Dermal Cream is for external use only and should be kept out of the sight and reach of children.

 

Permethrin is not an eye irritant, but contact of Lyclear Dermal Cream with the eyes should be avoided because other components of the product can cause marked irritation.  In the event of inadvertent eye contamination, the affected area should be rinsed immediately with plenty of water or, if readily available, normal saline.

 

In the event of accidental ingestion of permethrin, please seek immediate medical attention.

 

It is important to ensure that the course of treatment is followed as directed because treatment failure has been reported when this has not occurred.

 

 

Addition of the following statements to section 4.6 Fertility, pregnancy and lactation:

 

Pregnancy

There are limited data on the use of Lyclear Dermal Cream in pregnancy which provide no indication of any risk to the foetus.  Furthermore the amount of permethrin absorbed systemically following a whole body application is extremely low, less than 0.5% of the applied dose is absorbed. These data together with the negative mutagenicity tests and the very low mammalian toxicity would suggest that any risk to the foetus following treatment with Lyclear Dermal Cream is minimal. Women who are pregnant should use permethrin only after prior consultation with a healthcare professional.

 

Lactation

Studies, following oral administration of permethrin in cattle have indicated that very low concentrations of permethrin are excreted in milk.  It is not known whether permethrin is excreted in human breast milk, although there are very limited data, which suggest that suckling infants are unaffected following maternal use of permethrin containing products.  However, because only extremely small amounts of permethrin are absorbed systemically following treatment with Lyclear Dermal Cream and in theory only a very small percentage of this systemic permethrin may pass into the breast milk, it is unlikely that the concentrations of permethrin in the milk will present any risk to the neonate/infant. Women who are breastfeeding should only use permethrin containing products after consultation with a healthcare professional.

 

 

Update the following section 4.7 Effect on ability to Drive and Use Machines:

 

Not applicable.Permethrin is unlikely to have any effects on the ability to drive and use machines.

 

 

Update the following section 4.9 Overdose:

 

On the basis of animal and human volunteer studies, it is unlikely, even with misuse or excessive topical application that the amount of permethrin required to produce clinically relevant toxic effects would be reached.

 

In the event of accidental ingestion of permethrin, please seek immediate medical attention.

 

Symptoms and Signs

There are no reports of overdosage with Lyclear Dermal Cream.

Symptoms of overdose are generally likely to occur primarily because of accidental or

deliberate oral ingestion due to swallowing and in rare cases because of skin absorption following excessive topical application and may include dizziness, loss of appetite,

 nausea, vomiting, headache, weakness, seizures, and loss of consciousness.

Application of a full tube of cream to a 2 month-old child would result in a dose of approximately 350 mg/kg bodyweight to the skin.  It is unlikely that such a dose would cause overt signs of systemic toxicity even if 100% of the permethrin was absorbed.
