I have on my stomach, and now on the back of my thighs, red bumps, that look like insect bites. They itch pretty much all the time. One of them is an actual continuous line that is raised and red, and itches. I considered scabies, but do not have as many as are shown in pictures of scabies. I also have not been incontact with anyone with scabies that I know of. And the bumps are not in the typical scabies areas of my body. Please help!

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.Not sure if you ever found out what your lines were? But I have them on the back of my thigh and they are for sure in a line and itch. Raised red lines that itch bad, and after scratching them they now have small scabs on them. I also considered scabies but mine is not in the typical areas and doesnt look like any picture that I can find. Considering going to the doc. but was wondering if you ever figured them out or how you got them to go away?Thanks

  • I have the same exact symptoms as those described, and with much searching have been unable to find any other information on the internet. Someone please help! Does anyone have any additional information as to what this could be/how it can be treated? THANK YOU!
