Background: Scabies is a common disease that is caused by
Sarcoptes scabiei var. hominis. This disease is usually characterized by skin lesions which form straight or winding cuniculus coloured white or grey. These lesions generally located on the thin stratum corneum. It often accompanied by itching sensation at night and quickly spreads in dense environments. Scabies is a skin disease that is endemic in tropical and subtropical climates. In Indonesia, there are 14,798 Islamic boarding schools with a high prevalence of scabies. Treatment using permethrin 5% is felt to be less effective because if it not done simultaneously and massively, recurrence will occur immediately. The scabies disease certainly makes the students frustrated and decreased educational value
