Yes: Normally scabies infestation causes a rash, but you can have a few burrows or bites even without much of a rash. If a trained person looks carefully, they may be found. Sometimes they can be seen under a microscope. Scabies tends to make bite marks in a line of three. If you are itching, look for bites in these areas.
