Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
In some persons scabies can be associated with hives or urticarial wheals which usually resolve after some time.
You can take antihistaminics like tablet cetrizine 10 mg twice daily and apply soothing lotion like calamine lotion in the affected areas twice daily for 10-14 days.
This will help in subsiding your rash.
