It's essential to search for burrows carefully in a patient with a severe itch, especially if the rash is mild. Contact should be examined for burrows, whether or not they're itchy. Scabies burrows appear as 0.5 to 1.5 centimeter gray irregular tracks in the webbed spaces between the fingers, on the palms and wrist. They may also be found on or in elbows, nipples, armpits, buttocks, penis, [?] and heels. Dermatoscopic or microscopic examination of the contents of a burrow may reveal mites, eggs, or mite feces [?]
