In brief: Itch

Scabies tend to create burrows and small red bumps in the skin, often found in underarms, belly button and inter digit web spaces.
In infants, buttocks are commonly involved. Your doctor can diagnose this by finding scabies mite on skin scraping. They typically don't affect the face or scalp, so treatment is usually topical Elimite (permethrin) applied to every inch of your skin from neck down.
