Itchy red bumps/rashes. (Pictures included)
So I got a cat about a month ago and 1 week after I got my cat, I had this scab near the crook of my elbow.  I didn't think anything of it, until after a few days when the scab turned flaky and came off when I scratched it.  By the way, I don't think it was a scab, it just looked like one but flaked off. It was also really itchy.

Initially I thought it was ringworm because I thought my cat had it, but they aren't in the shape of a ring.  I've also tried using anti fungal cream, but that doesn't help.  After the first bump, I got two bumps that were about 1 cm in diameter, and in the past week I have started getting red bumps all over my body. Mainly on my chest, neck and lower torso area. I'm also starting to get some on my face and near my hairline.  There are about 30 dots/bumps in total.  I've also been getting them twice as fast now, and it's really scaring me.  Some are bigger (1cm diameter) and some are smaller(2mm).  I'd like to also mention that two other people living with me have also started getting these bumps. I think it may have something to do with my cat, because I got it right after.

I went to the doctors today and she told me she didn't know what it was, so she referred me to a dermatologist.  She said it could be pityriasis though.  Any ideas what this could be?

Thanks!
