Your description does not suggest any particular diagnosis.  Scabies is an outside possibility, but this is by no means certain.  It might be worthwhile to ask your general physician for a prescription for a scabies overnight treatment--even if it doesn't work, that information will be useful to your dermatologist.  And of course if you do clear up in a few days, that will both prove the diagnosis and solve the problem.

Otherwise, I think you will need to wait on the dermatologist's examination and opinion.  A skin biopsy may be useful.  Meantime, take the anti-itch medications, as they are providing at least temporary relief.

Best.
