i have this rash all over my body. it started as a few little bumps that kind of looked like pimples or mosquito bites. they itched like ***l. i thought it was just something that was irratating my skin. the next morning i woke up and it had spead all over my arm. i couldnt help scratching because it made it feel so much better but i wound up scatching them open. by day 3 it was all over both of my arms and on my lower back. i went to the doctors and he looked at it for like 2 seconds and said it was scabies. he gave me this cream to put on it at night and wash off when i woke up. he said that would kill any mites. scabies is supposedly very contagious. the morning after i did the cream there were more spots all on my legs. day 5 there were bumps on my stomach and starting on my face. i went to the er and they told me they didnt know what was causing this and blew it off as nothing serious. they gave me another cream and steroids. i thought it was working because it kind of looked lighter than the original red but the next morning i had like 5 more big blotches on my face. my ear was swollen with blisters on it and a huge patch going up my side and a small patch starting on my breast. i dont know what this can be. and i am really getting upset about this. i previously had shingles and it kind of looks similar but it doesnt follow the criteria. and someone said it looked like chicken pox but i had that when i was like 2. if anyone can help...
