Abstract

This study aimed to determine the risk factors of scabies transmission among male students of private Islamic Boarding School. This research used an explanatory sequential mixed method design. The study sample was chosen using cluster sampling, while the respondents were 142 students (CI: 95%). Qualitative data was obtained through observation, focus group discussion, and in-depth interviews with 9 participants. The prevalence of scabies in the study was 69.0%. Soap usage for baths twice a day, washing hands regularly, sharing clothes, bedding, and towel are statistically significant with the occurrence of scabies. Less knowledge, awareness, and care to behave healthily are predisposing factors to risky behavior in transmitting scabies. Meanwhile, the lack of the number of beds and bedrooms become an enabling factor. Usually, sharing prayer stuff, towel, and clothes among students and lack of school staff role in providing health education become reinforcing factors that increase the likelihood of students spreading scabies.
