Hallo Ria
Scabies usually cause burrows and nodules located in the crevasses of the body, such as between fingers, toes, buttocks, elbows, waist area, genital area, and under the breasts in women. Scabies would cause rash all the time. This could be due to an allergy for something ( washing powder, elastic from pants, nickel from a belt, chemicals in a leather belt). Try antihistamine cream like Anthisan and tablets like Loratidine when itching starts.
