The natural course of untreated creeping eruption was studied in a group of 25 patients. The treatment of the disease with oral thiabendazole in another group of 28 patients is also reported. Thiabendazole was observed to significantly shorten the course of creeping eruption. Transient unpleasant side-effects were noted in 13 of the 28 drug-treated patients.
