Eurax is an anti-parasite medicine for treatment of skin itching. The active agent crotamitone accumulates in the body of an itch mite and causes its death. In addition, the drug helps to relieve itching not associated with scabies, because it reduces the excitability of receptors in the deep layers of the skin. Eurax eliminates itching in areas of application for 5-6 hours.
Eurax may also be sold as Crotamitone.
