Small itchy blister type bumps in body. Treatment?

Resolved Question:

I have broken out with bumps all over my body. It is worse in some places but there are small blister type bumps on my hands and wrists that are very itchy. There are also bumps all over my stomach, my back, my arm pits, under my breasts and on my feet. Oh and on my legs - basically everywhere.  I have been like this for almost a month.  It itches very badly and I have scratched so bad that I now have small scars where the bumps are.  I have never had skin problems before.  I am 40 years old patientold and in good health.

Thanks for posting your query at
I can understand your concern. I reviewed the pictures.

You seem to have scabies which is caused by a mite. The lesions are small itchy bumps on the body in a characteristic distribution. There is increased history of itching at night. It tends to spread to family members.

I would recommend application of permethrin cream below the neck on the whole body only once at night after a bath. It doesn't have to be applied daily. One application on day one and repeat application after ten days.

Calamine lotion can be applied daily. An anti histamine like claritin can be taken daily at night.

You will need a prescription for the permethrin cream.

The itching takes a month to subside completely.

Please let me know if you have any queries. Take care

No question. I am unsure how I contracted this but thank you. At least I know what it is. I will take steps to treat myself and my kids.
