This talk was recorded live on the second day of DFTB17 in Brisbane.

Melanie Thompson is a paediatrician working in the Kimberley, WA. She has a special interest in indigenous health and she dares you to listen to her talk without itching. Scabies is one of the top 50 infectious diseases in the world and we thought it deserved the chance to shine. Say hello to our little friend…

If you think it has gone away then read this recent article in the Lancet.
