    It looks like a small tick to me.

    Your doctor didn't say "it" was scabies. Scabies is a contagious skin condition caused by a small mite. .The mite lays eggs in human skin, which hatch and grow into adult mites. Symptoms and signs of scabies include generalized intense itching;

    A tick might just possibly cause the skin condition called scabies; but the tick isn't scabies.

      Scabies is caused by the Sarcoptes Scabiei mite, so if pets are in the house the doctor might not have been too far off on his guess.
