Is this scabies?

These 2 thin red lines just appeared at the same time, defiantly not scratch marks from my hands. One is around 6cm long and the other is around 4cm. They appear to have cut the skin at the beginning, I'm assuming this is where the mites entered.

They have appeared before sometimes on my arm but usually just below the waist.

My arms had face had been itchy and I seen the dermatologist who said it was ezecma, there were no track marks to show him at the time however.

They look similar, but yours look a little longer than mine. Also Mine will have several puncture marks along the line-maybe 4 or 5 puncture bites.
