Scabies: It is very possible that you did not have scabies at all. If your practitioner did not scrape the lesions actually see the mites, the possibility of scabies is lessened. Sometimes the medicines given for presumptive scabies can be quite irritating in their own right. That means that you should definitely see a dermatologist and get this assessed properly. You may or may not even have scabies.
