Topical 5-10% sulfur treatment was the used treatment in 61.7% of patient. Also, The finding of current study demonstrated increase in the serum level of IL-4 in mange patients serum (902.925 ±83.494pg/ml) comparing with healthy (366.950± 41.674).
Conclusion: Scabies was high in individuals younger than 20 and children which can identified as high-risk category. Topical 5-10% mass treatment is the best suggested treatment for scabies patients in Thi-Qar, also an elevated levels of IL-4 is indication of activation of TH2 that induce hypersensitivity reaction by IgE production.
