Hi there Kat.
I read your very detailed history & description of your clinical findings with interest.
I do believe that you are extrapolating your text-book knowledge into fitting it in with your clinical problem including the 'burrow' et al.
In either case, i suggest treating yourself first with a Permethrin based creme'-rinse to be applied to the entire body over a 6 hr period as a single application. This is perfectly safe & well tolerated & will rid you of your itch if indeed scaboes is implicated. In addition, it can be purchased over the counter in most countries.
An alternative is to pick up a 10% crotamiton
cream, mix it 1:1 along with a topical hydrocortisone
preparation & apply it liberally to the lesions twice/daily over a 3 day period & this should be helpful.
Having given all these suggestions, i still would like to stress
that dermatology is a very visual field
& please do visit your nearest dermatologist
on the ground.
Cheers & Good Luck.
