although the etymology is imprecise, scab and scabies would logically seem to be related. the source of scab is the old norse skabb, where scabies comes from the latin scabere, to scratch.

more like it was an imprecise translation...considering that norwegian would come from old norse.

Barret isn't far off, skabb in swedish means mange, parasite that builds nest under the skin

here we go...i didn't do much research before because, really, there was no one of consequence active when i got around to noticing the query:

scab - mid-13c., "skin disease," developed from Old English sceabb "scab, itch" (related to scafan "to shave, scrape, scratch") and from Old Norse skabb "scab, itch," both from Proto-Germanic *skab- "scratch, shave," from PIE *(s)kep- "to cut, scrape, hack" (see scabies). Sense reinforced by cognate Latin scabies "scab, itch, mange" (from scabere "to scratch").

compare to scabies - skin disease, "the itch," c.1400, from Latin scabies "mange, itch, roughness," from scabere "to scratch, scrape," from PIE root *(s)kep-, a base forming words meaning "to cut, scrape, hack" (cf. Gothic scaban, Old English sceafan "to scrape, shave;" Greek skaptein "to dig;" "Old Church Slavonic skobli "scraper;" Lithuanian skabus "sharp," skabeti "to cut;" Lettish skabrs "splintery, sharp")
