How does Natroba work?

Natroba’s active compound, spinosad, kills scabies mites where they live, eat, and breed on the outermost layer of the skin, before flaking off naturally.1,16

Note: You may need help applying Natroba to ensure full coverage. If you do not completely cover your body with Natroba, some scabies mites may escape treatment.

Additional treatment management for scabies.

Natroba starts killing scabies mites right away, but you may still experience itching for a few weeks. Your doctor may recommend the use of an antihistamine and/or short-acting corticosteroid to minimize this type of symptom.15
