Journal of Family Practice article says, "Using intention-to-treat analysis, permethrin 5% cream was as effective as metronidazole 0.05% gel and significantly superior to placebo at improving erythema (change from a baseline score of 2.60 to 1.34), papules (change from baseline count of 6.04 to 1.73), and pustules (change from baseline count of 2.30 to 0.56)." This same article reports, "Permethrin 5% cream is superior to metronidazole 0.75% gel and placebo in decreasing Demodex folliculorum, and is as effective as metronidazole 0.75% gel in treating erythema and papules."
