The Antipolo City government has addressed a pesky problem plaguing some of the city’s students.
Antipolo Mayor Jun Ynares said students of the Libis Elementary School would no longer have to keep on scratching themselves as the city government has distributed medicine against scabies.
It also conducted health education about this condition, Ynares said.
Scabies is a common skin ailment caused by burrowing mites, he said.
“Dahil sa hatid nating serbisyong medikal katuwang ang City Health Office, ang dating sleepless nights sanhi ng nakakagigil na galis, ngayo’y mapapalitan na ng payapa at kumpletong tulog para sa ating mga chikiting. Huwag lang magpupuyat, ha?” he said.
