Rash With Norwegian Scabies

Norwegian scabies (also known as crusted scabies) is a more severe form. With this type of scabies, the rash can look similar to psoriasis and include:
 
  • Numerous blisters
  • Thick crust over the skin
  • Redness.
 
This rash does not tend to itch as much as other scabies infestations.
