In the video, Dr Piccolo looks at recent research into dermoscopic findings in scabies. Japanese researchers have found a new sign called the grey-edged line sign. Dr Piccolo explores the characteristics of this new sign and how it can be used to identify scabies.
With real patient case examples, Dr Piccolo also looks at the other common dermoscopic characteristics of scabies, including the delta glider and the noddle pattern.

Would you use a plastic cap on your dermatascope before using it on skin infected with scabies mites?
I do not usually apply plastic bag as I use non-contact polarized dermoscopy.
When I take pictures with digital dermoscope, I use antiseptic solutions as interface.
