† Forty patients were treated for scabies with a 10% suspension of thiabendazole applied externally. Thirty-two patients (80%) had a satisfactory response to one course of therapy, while a second course was necessary in six (15%). Two patients (5%) required intralesional injections of triamcinolone diacetate because of persistent scabious nodules.
