Symptoms of scabies are most likely to develop: between the fingers and on the palm side of the wrists.
On the outside surfaces of the elbows and in the armpits. Around the waistline and navel. On the buttocks. Around the nipples, bra line, and the sides of the breasts (in women). On the genitals (in men).
