Scabies or dermatitis?

I have had a rash ONLY on the back of my thighs up to my behind for about a week now and it worsens at night, it has gotten to the point of keeping me from sleeping. I work at a hospital but I don't work with patients and I have not had contact with anyone with scabies so I don't know how I would get it. I have found tea tree oil to be soothing the itching. But the bumps are still there and it still bothers me. I plan on seeing a doctor on Monday but ever since hearing about scabies I am terrified . Please help!
