Sklice Side Effects

Although clinical studies did not show that Sklice caused common side effects (those occurring in 1 percent or more of people), there were some uncommon side effects. Some of these uncommon reactions included dandruff, eye redness, and a burning sensation on the skin. There may also be serious problems, such as severe eye or skin irritation, which you should report to your healthcare provider immediately.

An Introduction to Sklice Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Sklice® (ivermectin lotion) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses this lotion will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects of Sklice. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)

Common Side Effects of Sklice

Sklice has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, one group of people was treated with Sklice 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 for Sklice, 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.
