Bedbugs is serious: Both scabies and bedbugs are common hygienic problems nowadays. There is a possibility that rash you have doesn't fit to one particular diagnosis. The scabies is very easier to treat with the meds, your doctor prescribed. The bedbugs don't live on humans, infestation is much more serious problem. Look along mattress seams, baseboards, behind head boards, ceiling/wall junctions, person. Belonging.
