AbstractThe present study is a portrayal of the incidence of skin diseases viz. skin problems in a house to house survey of a communityand its comparison with 5 years (1971-1976) statistical analysis of various dermatoses is represented in graphic form. Data collected reflect the prevalence of common skin problems. To these is drawn the attention of medical authorities and teachers for revision of the undergraduate curriculum and refresher course (continuing medical education). It is desired that proper stress should be laid on control of infectious dermaloses particularly scabies which forms a very large percentage of the prevalent dermatoses in our community.
