Hi,

It may not be scabies but maybe prurigo simplex or else. Diagnosis should be revised after consulting the expert dermatologist. If needed, a skin biopsy should be done to confirm the diagnosis. And also your son should be examined by an expert dermatologist and have a proper diagnosis... before considering the treatment. You may take an opinion of a few other dermatologists.

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

Take care.

Regards,
Dr Ilyas Patel,
