In brief: Blister,bump, line

Scabies are dark, tiny, crablike insects that burrows under the skin leaving behind waste products that eventually lead to itching.
The skin finding may be a small blister, a half inch burrow (line), or bump. Involved skin can become secondarily infected by germs and produce weeping or scabed over areas.

In brief: Itchy rash

Scabies is a very itchy and annoying rash that comes from a mite that likes to burrow itself underneath the skin.
It is contagious and has a predisposition for certain hidden areas of the body (such as the webs of the fingers/toes, creases under the breasts, and elbows). It can be generalized in a baby. Sometimes it can look like a little pimple or insect bite, and other times it can be crusted.
