Itching little red bumps and white specks

OK, these started a couple of months ago and they are HORRIBLE. It started with just a few of these little white specks in my clothes, which made me itch. They also show up in my bed.
They seem to come off of my whole body. I will put on clean or even brand new clothes and within a few minutes these little tiny white specks show up in my clothes, most often around the elastic of my underwear, but I also get many on my shoulders and back, also on my legs and arms. When I wake up there are always dozens of these things in my bed from head to toe, even when I am covered with clothes; socks, sweatpants, t-shirt and they still show up all around my legs even though they are covered with clothes which stumps me. They are white, round, and go from about a 5th of a MM up to a MM in size. They dont move and they dont look like bugs, but they sure as ***l do itch!

They seem to be in my hair as well since it itches and I have seen these little white specks fall out of my hair.

I have tried lice shampoo several times and while it seemed to help with the hair a little, it made the rest of my body WORSE. (I applied it all over since I thought I might have body lice.)

I have at least a hundred small, little red bumps all over me which itch. They are on my face, my back, my belly, my shoulders, my arms and my legs. It seems like the little things that fall off of me are bugs which bite me but I dont really know.

I even went to the doctor who said I have scabies and prescribed lindane lotion, which cost $130 for a little tube and didnt help me.

These things have made life HORRIBLE. I hope so bad someone can help me! I have seen other people report the same thing in other forums, but I havent seen any answers yet, and I really need help!
