Hello, I am a 24 year old male. I have been experiencing serious itching all over my body for about six months now, starting mildly but with increasing severity. Accompanying this have been small, dry red bumps on my hands and wrists, slightly on my forearms, with larger much itchier bumps on my thighs and legs. The situation has progressed to the point that my buttocks are now covered in these bumps, and I am itching constantly. Also, it seems my girlfriend may have also contracted this, as she has been getting itchy over the last couple of months. A doctor prescribed me cream for Scabies, but this actually seems to have made it worse, as I now seem to have a couple scaly or bump patches (they are patches with texture of an indeterminite nature) around my neck and in the middle of my chest. I have saved pictures of the bumps on my buttocks to my photobucket account if this helps, they can be viewed at the following links:
Please help me to find out what this might be as it is impacting my career and social life in a negative manner.
