All students appearing at the camp were examined by a dermatologist andinformation regarding age, gender, school grade and diagnosis were recorded in a prevalidatedformat.

Female students had significantlyhigher prevalence (29%) than male (18.5%). The most common skin disorders were acne,eczemas and urticaria, and the 10 most frequent diagnoses comprised 87% of all skinconditions.Conclusion: This study demonstrates that 1/4 of the students had one or more identifiableskin disorders.
