QUELLADA LOTION is used for the treatment of scabies and pediculosis (lice). It rapidly eliminates the parasites.
SIDE-EFFECTS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS:
Gamma benzene hexachloride is a chlorinated insecticide and can produce symptoms consistent with central nervous system stimulation. It may be absorbed through the respiratory and gastro-intestinal tracts and through the skin. Do not use on broken or infected skin. Whatever its route, this absorption is facilitated by oily substances. Skin irritation may occur.
QUELLADA LOTION should not be allowed to come into contact with the eyes, nose, mouth or other delicate membranes. Should the lotion accidentally get into the eyes, it should be flushed out immediately with water.
KNOWN SYMPTOMS OF OVERDOSAGE AND PARTICULARS OF ITS TREATMENT:
Poisoning could occur through accidental ingestion, inhalation or percutaneous absorption.
Symptoms of acute poisoning include nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea, paraesthesia, respiratory failure, giddiness and fatigue, followed by tremors, convulsions and coma. Liver, kidney and myocardial toxicity have also been reported with chlorinated pesticides, while effects on the blood include agranulocytosis and aplastic anaemia. Early symptoms are loss of appetite, muscular weakness, fine tremors and apprehensive mental state.
Treatment of overdosage:
Acute poisoning (ingestion): Emesis should be induced with syrup of ipecac unless the patient is comatose or has lost the gag reflex when gastric lavage should be performed, followed by activated charcoal and then sodium or magnesium sulphate carthartics. Do not administer sympathomimetics, atropine or oils. Artificial respiration may be indicated to counteract pulmonary failure. Convulsions may be treated with i.v. diazepam.
Chronic poisoning(topical) may occur when patients use the product regularly (misuse). The patient should be withdrawn from the product.
For external use only.
