Scabies: The skin shows signs of small insect-type bites, or looks like pimples. The skin may also be red or have sores due to scratching of the area. A burrow (a short s-shaped track that indicates the mite's movement under the skin) may also be visible. The average affected person has only five to 10 mites on their body at a time.

Scabies: Scabies can cause intense itching which worsens at night. There may be small burrows made by blisters & bumps in skin folds. Places you might find them include armpits, inner elbows, between fingers, feet, around buttocks, genitalia & breasts.
