I have developed a bug bite looking rash on my body about over two weeks ago. No one else in my family have complained of itching and my 6 year old practically sleeps on top of me. The rash itches like crazy. It started around my breast, wrist, feet and now I have some on my back, arms, thighs. I have none on my head, face, neck, and thank god!!!!, none on my genital area. The doctor has done a scratch test to check for allergies but came up negative. He also gave me a cream in case it is scabies, which has not helped.

Does anyone know what this could be, and is it possible to have scabies and your family not have it?
