After a strong rise in incidences between 2009 and 2014, a four-fold increase in five years, the scabies epidemic seems to have stabilised. The continuous and regular rise began before the shortfall in availability of certain anti-scabies treatments. It would be interesting to analyse if the observed stabilisation is linked to changes in therapeutic practices.

Time-series analysis also highlights a fairly strong seasonality, with a peak each year in the month of November and lowest numbers at the end of June/beginning of July. This post-summer seasonality, had already been identified in France and in other countries; it has been confirmed over the long term. Greater promiscuity linked to climatic changes, or modifications in the life cycle of the sarcopte depending on the climate are explanatory hypotheses, which remain to be confirmed.
