One hundred and one (9.02%) of 1119 students in 13 primary schools were found to have scabies. It was more in girls and in children below the age of 8 years. Poverty, poor hygiene, habits of sharing clothes and intimate personal contact play a major role in the spread and persistence of scabies. Treatment and health education with the help of the teachers worked out well. Lack of proper treatment may lead to an epidemic of scabies.
