itchy legs! Scabies?

For a week or so I have had very itchy legs. I scratch them to the point of bleeding, and so now i have crusts all over my lower body. At first I thought some sort of a insect might be biting me, but it continued for days. The only thing i know that might be a possible offset is that I have spent a night (the night before it started itching) at a friends house partying.
Since I don't have insurance (thanks a lot Obama...for nothing) I am wondering does any one have a clue what this might be? Going on wikipedia I saw that scabies leave white marks, well...i have those marks on several places, but i don't know if that is from scratching, and/or the crusts falling off. Does any one know of a reliable way of determining if it is scabies without going to the hospital, or what the treatment for scabies is?
