Brief Answer:
Yes Scabies can be diagnosed online

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to ask a doctor service
Yes scabies can be diagnosed online.
You need to elaborate your symptoms like duration of itching, whether itching more during the day or night, any family history of itching, history of itching in pets and sites of itching. You can also upload a good quality photo of the rash.
These will help in diagnosing scabies.
