Myself, and my entire family have all developed small red, itchy bumps. The symptoms started appearing about two weeks ago with the arrival of my grandfather (who is suffering from what is doctor's believe to be Grover's Disease, which occurs in older males and is a skin disease). It's a possibility that he gave us something, but Grover's is not communicable. The physician we spoke to believes it to be scabies, but there is not tell-tale zigzag trail through the skin, and since we treated ourselves with Acticin 5%, but even more bumps have appeared since then. Has anyone else suffered from the same symptoms?
