Brief Answer: Could be Scabies Detailed Answer: Namaste Greetings of the day Terrible itching and burning in other parts of body may be post menopausal hot flushes and the crawling sensation could be due to dry skin. I also would like to consider the possibility of Scabies which usually can have such presentation. I put my patients on single over night application of Permethrin cream and a good scrub bath the following day. Followed by daily application of aloe Vera based moisturizing cream will help. Wishing you a healthy life In case of any further query Kindly get back to me. Regards Deepak
