In brief: 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. See: http://www.Emedicinehealth.Com/scabies/page3_em.Htm#scabies symptoms.
