We identified risk factors for the infestation using logisitic regression analysis. Itching in family/dormitory mates, infrequent bathing, infrequent changing of clothes, low education, sharing beds and being away from the barracks were identified as significant risk factors for scabies, while overcrowding, large family size and sharing of towels and hospitalisation were notEN
