The standard treatment for the last 30 years has been GBHC (Kwell, 1% lindane, Reed & Camrick, Piscataway, NJ).[10] It is easy to apply, nonirritating, and more effective than older treatments including crotamiton 10% (Eurax, West-wood-Squibb, Princeton, NJ).[14,18] However, GBHC is absorbed through the skin, and may result in toxic serum levels in patients with thin or fissured skin, or with overuse, especially in elderly patients.
