Increased the number of scabious lymphoplasia of skin on the buttocks, abdomen, in the axillary areas, genitals in men. In epidermophytia due to the increased skin moisture number of burrows on the hands and feet almost 2 times higher than that in the normal course of the disease. Dominated itch moves associated with exudative morphological elements, often recorded secondary pyoderma. Use of psychotropic drugs in the appropriate patient population modified the clinical picture of scabies. This manifested in the dryness of the skin, eliminating (weakening) of pruritus, development drug toxicoderma (26.7%), the prevalence of destroyed burrows and frequent occurrence of superficial mycoses of the skin (57.8%), which masked the clinical manifestations of scabies.
