Description

Additional information

Description of data capture For each participant we collected demographic data including age and gender, as well as data on household size and number of individuals sharing a single room as measures of overcrowding. We collected data on whether any household contacts had been diagnosed with scabies. All participants were then examined by an experienced consultant paediatrician (BTW). We recorded the presence or absence of all skin lesions, their distribution and whether they were consistent with scabies, impetigo or an alternative diagnosis. The number of scabies lesions was classified as ≤10, 11 to 49 or ≥50. Lesions of impetigo were classified as either active (moist, purulent or crusted lesions) or healed (flat/dry lesions with no crust). The number of impetigo lesions was classified as ≤5, 6 to 10, 11 to 49 or ≥50. All data was collected directly on to Android smartphones using the ODK software package
