This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effects of treating contacts of people with scabies in order to prevent the development of symptoms of infestation in the contacts, and to prevent the recurrence of scabies in the index case and further spread to additional contacts and beyond.
