The treatment of creeping eruption by local therapy for limited areas of skin involvement was investigated. A locally applied thiabendazole suspension (500 mg/5 cc) was applied to the area of the skin affected by the parasite. The area was covered with dexamethasone cream and occluded with a polyethylene film. This was left in place for three days, and resulted in a satisfactory nontoxic outcome.
