dc.description.abstractAbstract published with permission. This article explores the assessment, diagnosis and current recommended treatment for scabies in the UK. There are many myths surrounding scabies which could lead to misdiagnosis. Using a case from clinical practice, some of the common features of a history suggestive of infestation are explored and the social and psychological effects of such a diagnosis are considered. As a result of reading this article, prehospital practitioners should be more aware of scabies and more able to identify it in the community setting.
