Ivermectin is an anthelmintic used to treat infections caused by various parasites.
Oral ivermectin has been used to treat crusted scabies (also known as hyperkeratotic, Norwegian or atypical scabies) that does not respond to topical treatment alone.
About this evidence summary 'Evidence summaries: unlicensed or off-label medicines' summarise the published evidence for selected unlicensed or off-label medicines that are considered to be of significance to the NHS, where there are no clinically appropriate licensed alternatives.
The summaries provide information for clinicians and patients to inform their decision-making and support the construction and updating of local formularies.No RCTs of oral ivermectin for the treatment of crusted scabies were identified.This evidence summary includes the results of 5 uncontrolled trials and case series with 4 or more participants with crusted scabies that reported cure rates or treatment failures.Administration of a second dose within 2 weeks after the initial dose should only be considered when new specific lesions occur or when parasitological examination is positive.For crusted scabies, a second dose within 8–15 days of the initial dose of ivermectin and/or concomitant topical therapy may be necessary.A Cochrane systematic review that included 7 randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of oral ivermectin compared with placebo or topical treatments available in the UK was identified, along with 4 additional RCTs of oral ivermectin that were published after the Cochrane review.
