Crusted scabies or Norwegian scabies, a severe variant of highly contagious scabies, occurs as widespread hyperkeratotic crusted lesions, and hence, the name “crusted scabies” is preferred to the eponym of “Norwegian scabies.” A case of a 27-year-old girl was reported in the Outpatient Department of North Eastern Institute of Ayurveda and Homoeopathy. After thorough case taking and proper repertorisation, mezereum 30C was given as the first prescription. The patient was better and was prescribed placebo for 7 days, and thereafter, appearance of secondary symptoms such as fever, sore throat, and cough had been noticed with no further betterment of skin symptoms. Staphylococcin 200 was used as an intercurrent remedy. After secondary symptoms subsided, again mezereum 30C was given followed by placebo for 1 month, and there was marked improvement. Different stages of the disease were documented and are attached with the detailed case report.
