Hmm: If it looks like scabies I normally treat with Permethrin 5% as sometimes there are only 6-8 Mites in your entire body leading to the negative skin scraping. Consider sending us a picture or seeing a dermatologist face to face and reconsider just treating for scabies.

Also, stop any new skin care products, detergents, lotions, perfumes etc. and go fragrance-free till this is sorted out.

If no infection is found, consider talking with your doctor about new food allergies / sensitivities or low vitamin levels. They can sometime show up as simple rashes.
