It seems from the history that you have red sores which are itchy surrounded by rashes. Many skin conditions present with skin rashes and hence it is difficult to say which condition it is unless seen physically.
However since you have mentioned that it is associated with itching it can be scabies as you are suspecting. But pain is usually absent in cases of scabies.

Hence you need to consult skin specialist before starting treatment.

Thank you
