Are itchy thighs and bruises in the area signs of scabies?

My son might have been diagnosed with scabies. They weren t for sure if he had them but they were thinking yes. My whole house took the procaustion and used the cream. We also cleaned our house for the whole day. This was about 3 weeks ago. I now have 3 scabs in a row on my upper thigh and it itches. The 3 scabs are not attached. It has also caused some bruising in that aera. I have some red marks on my thighs but it looks more like an allergic reaction then mites. My left boob is also really itchy. Not all day but enough to make me think. Does this mean I have scabies?

Hi,

Scabies is a possibility and you have to apply Permethrin at the earliest to prevent further transmissions. You can consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
