Still scabies: If you were treated forvscabies. The medicine can clear the infection but the inflammation will require several days for the skin to return to normal. During this phase a prescription topical steroid is useful. Also check for any other possible sources such as pets.

Scar: Bites and itchy rash may leave you with a scar.
