I looked up information about how scabies is transmitted.  It isn't always through sexual contact, but it can be by other close contact.  It does say on the site I looked at that the rash from these little mites does look like allergic dermatitis.

I would say that is correct.  When I was a young kid, the other kids were cruel and accused me of having scabies or other critters.  But, the real problem was that I have a lot of allergies.  And--of course I'm going to remember the other kids being this cruel.

Dove is good, but I found a sulfite free and soy free soap that is better, in case this is an allergy issue.

The soap is called Sappo Hill and is made in Portland, OR.  They make their soap the old fashioned way.  They just use a nicer smelling fat to make the soap.  They use coconut oil.  It doesn't smell like coconut at all and is hypoallergenic.  I'm sure there are people who are still allergic to it, but most people with allergies can handle it, including people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.  I would advice buying the one they named "NATURAL".  The soap is actually all natural, so maybe they should have called it neutral.  But, this is a perfect one for both men and women, because it is natural and neutral.  They have another neutral one that has oatmeal in it, but many are definitely allergic to oatmeal, even though oatmeal is known to be kind to skin.  So, definitely, if you have to order the stuff to have it shipped to you--get the one called "NATURAL".

thank you so much. ive been to the skin doctor and he said it was eczema which idk if he was right cause all the pictures i look up it doesnt look nearly as bad as the ones on google. its not really that noticeable to other people that much but when im writing in school or something i see it and it irritates me that im not 100 percent sure what it is. the doctor only looked at it for 2 seconds and sent me on the way so idk. but thank you for your time i appreciate it

My first thought was eczema.    Atopic dermatitis is a form of eczema.   Since there are different kinds of eczema, finding an exact picture is frustrating.   I have psoriasis so I know how frustrating skin problems can be.  Good luck.
