The World Health Organisation has classified Tungiasis which is one of the most widespread parasitic skin diseases in sub-Saharan Africa as a neglected tropical disease. Tungiasis also known as sand fleas disease is a parasitic inflammatory skin condition, it occurs mainly in low- and middle-income countries. Since there is no approved standard drug therapy for Tungiasis, it is almost impossible for governments to eliminate the disease in endemic areas without improving people's living conditions.

Tungiasis causes skin inflammation, severe pain, itching, and a lesion at the site of infection.
