Burrow Ink Test (BIT) Done by the Patient and Analyzed through TeleMedicine to Diagnose Scabies in Covid Era: Our Experience.

Udaya Kiran Koduri*

Scabies is a contagious skin infestation caused by a mite Sarcoptes scabiei. Clinical presentation and symptoms help in the diagnosis. Investigations where ever possible should be performed. The main objective of the process in our report was to guide the tele-suspected scabies patient through the BIT test at home and infer the results procured through BIT with the aid of Telemedicine, in purview of the COVID era. We directed the patient to perform the BIT test at home in order to gain further information on the presence of suspected scabies, interpreted by the visual data shared by the patient to the clinician through telemedicine.
