ABSTRACT: Two cases of creeping eruptions are reported here which showed dramatic improvement following oral albendazole therapy with no discernible side effect. To our knowledge these are the first two cases of creeping eruption where oral albendazole has been used. So far thiabendazole may prove an effective as well as less toxic alternative to thiabendazole in the therapy of creeping eruption.
