We thank Stingeni et al for their comment letter referring to our previous letters. In the first, we reported on a pediatric non-atopic patient referred for two itching lesions with targetoid and eczematous appearance after a permanence in a countryside house: KOH examination on a skin specimen harvested form the central punctum on scraping revealed the silhouette of an unknown mite. Based on the microscopic pictures, the clinical history and the lesions' morphology, an hypothesis of identification with P.Ventricosus species was first provided. The reliability of the "dust direct examination test to isolate the infesting environmental arthropods" was not questioned, and its feasibility was not compared with "scanning electron microscopy/in vivo confocal laser scanning".

A method of continuously holding a partially wrapped baby to the chest, involving skin-to-skin contact. Originally it was a method of caring for LOW-BIRTH-WEIGHT INFANT in developing countries and is now more widespread in developed nations. Aside from encouraging breast feeding, the extra sleep that the infant gets assists in regulating body temperature, helps the baby conserve energy, and redirects calorie expenditures toward growth and weight gain.
