[Research Review] Is scabies becoming less sensitive to permethrin treatment?

Is scabies becoming less sensitive to permethrin treatment? In this short video, Dr Vincenzo Piccolo discusses the results of a double centred study from Italy.

Scabies is a cutaneous parasitic infection characterised by itchy lesions of the skin with burrows. It can spread through skin-to-skin contact and is often diagnosed through dermoscopy.

In this presentation, Dr Piccolo investigates whether there is evidence suggesting a decrease in the effectiveness of the current standard treatment protocol, permethrin.

He discusses the results of his study which was recently published in the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology.
