How Often Do Reactions Occur With Ivermectin Lotion?

Common Side Effects

Ivermectin lotion has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, one group of people was treated with ivermectin lotion and another group was treated with a lotion without the active ingredient but with the same inactive ingredients. As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they were reported, and how they compared between the two groups.
 
In these studies, there were no common side effects of ivermectin lotion, with "common" being defined as occurring in 1 percent or more of people. Side effects that did occur in less than 1 percent of people included:
 
  • "Pink eye" (conjunctivitis)
  • Eye redness
  • Eye irritation
  • Dandruff
  • Dry skin
  • Burning sensation on the skin.
 

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while using ivermectin lotion or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
