This started with my two younger kids, they started getting extremely itchy to where they couldnt sleep at night. We took them to four Drs who all said it was eczema, then their grandparents got it, then my husband and I and our baby got it, so we knew it wasnt eczema, took them to the derm and she said it was scabies. Did the treatment, had no relief. Went to the health dept, they said they have no clue what it is but it doesnt look anything like scabies... Then i started putting a mixture of sarna and cetaphil lotion on them, and giving them an antihistimine every night. This has controlled it enough to where they can sleep, they are a LOT better, but we are all still quite itchy.

What it looks like is sparatic red bumps that look like pimples, there are only a few of these throughout the body, I have 4-5 baby has 4-5 etc, really nasty looking things. THen we also have little tiny itchy spots that are really hard to see, unless you are itching them. There are more of those, but still not a huge amt, but they cause pretty intense itching. The older kids had them EVERYWHERE, i have them on my waist, hip, arms, and back, and also I imagine i have a lot on my head because that is the most itchy part. My face also.
