Symptoms appear 1-3 weeks after infection.

Scabies has some clear symptoms:

  • Severe itching
  • Sores caused by the scratching
  • Rash or burrows on the skin, especially in folds of skin

Symptoms of pubic lice include:

  • Itching
  • Visible nits or live lice
  • Rash or burrows on the skin - especially in folds of skin

Obviously itching is a symptom of both conditions, without other symptoms it can't be clear which, if either, you have.
