Look at my main post and tell me if it looks the same. It sound just like mine. I was put on prednisone which has helped alot , I was told i didnt have scabies which I thought it was , I was told it was an allergic reaction , a severe one.

Hi,
You need to consult a dermatologist. Because of the extensive rash you describe a clinical examination is important for a confirmed diagnosis. You could be having scabies, an alergic reaction or even an infective condition.
Treatment can only be started once a confirmed diagnosis is available.
Till you get to see a dermatologist, try some antiallergic or antihistaminic medication and calamine lotion. This will decrease the itching, but this is not the cure.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
