U017 - Infestation Situations: Updates on Bothersome Bugs

Friday, July 26; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Diagnose skin infestations and skin reactions or complications from insect bites more effectively.
  • Develop effective treatment plans for skin infestations.


Mite infestations and arthropod bite reactions are itchy and can be psychologically troublesome to patients. We will discuss diagnosis and management of skin disease caused by mites and insects, including head lice, scabies and ticks. Case examples will be presented to highlight variations of clinical findings that occur in specific patient populations, and we will review bedside microscopy. Emerging treatment resistance trends and recently approved therapies will be emphasized. By the end of the session, the audience will be able to diagnose, treat and counsel patients with these conditions effectively.
