Inflammatory nodular lesions involving the axillae and the diaper area are particularly typical of scabies in the very young child. These lesions may coexist with burrows, papules, vesicles, pustules, and areas of crusting. The nodules may persist for quite some time after the infestation is treated and do not reflect a persistent infestation.
