Generic Acticin action is introduced in killing and paralyzing of mites and their eggs. The mechanism of drug action is based on the ability of Permethrin (it is a syntetic chemical, insect repellent, insecticide, acaricide) to disturb the ion current through sodium channels, leading to disruption of the polarization of the membrane of nerve cells and insect paralysis.There is also a medicine for treatment of internal parasites - Generic Vermox 100mg chewable tablets, which helps with parasitic (worm) infections from roundworms, hookworms, pinworms, whipworms.Or you may look at Generic Azelex cream online that has bacteriostatic activity for skin and is used as treatment for mild-to-moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris.
