itchy red bumps on penis/thighs/butt cheeks

hey Im very curious.. I have noticed itchy bumps on my inner thighs/ butt cheecks and penis.. I have been to 2 doctors and they said that it doesnt seem to be any sort of std.. but also they havent seen it at its worst.. i was subscribed 1% cortizone cream.. i think thats what its called.. I have been using it for about 3-4 weeks now and the little bumps on my penis head have gone away but now i have noticed an itchy bump on the side of my penis which is a bit bigger.. also there is a bump on the edge of my penis head that had peeled and gone away for a few days and re-appeared in the exact same spot which seems to have formed as a bump/scar(not as itchy)...
...i have very itchy bumps on my inner thighs and butt cheeks that seem to be getting worse. I also notice very very very very small blister type bumps on my fingers that i have popped and released some sort of fluid.. the bumps on my penis/butt/thighs do not seem to have any fluid in them.. just very itchy and red.. I have had sexual intercourse about 3 to 4 months ago.. and have noticed these irritations about 2 months ago.. can masterbation (masturbation) cause it to get worse?..
i was told by a friend that it may be bed bugs?.. is that possible? (fleas? or no?.. i do have a dog that may very well have fleas)..
what does it seem to be?.. i have also noticed little bite lookin bumps on the side of my stomach which look similar to the itchy bumps on my thighs and butt but only smaller. I am very concerned because i have been using the cream as told and the issue does not seem to be getting better at all. Any ideas on what it may be? IM SO ITCHY! and it looks so ugly!

Hi,
This does seem to be an allergic reaction which is manifesting as rash/hives. Hives are raised, often itchy, red welts on the surface of the skin.

When you have an allergic reaction to a substance, histamine and other chemicals are released into your bloodstream, causing itching, swelling, and other symptoms. The common triggers are medications, foods (shellfish, fish, nuts, eggs, milk, and other foods), pollen and insect bites.

It presents as swelling of the surface of the skin into red- or skin-colored welts (called wheals) which is associated with itching. These welts tend to start suddenly and resolve quickly.
You can take antihistamines Cetrizine to treat this condition. Also application of calamine lotion can soothe the affected areas and relieve the itching.
Avoid hot showers which can irritate the skin, instead cold compresses applied to the bumps will help.

Hello,

I'm experiencing the same exact issue the itch/sores are on my:
Head
Hands
     The skin seems to be peeling and cracking as well. Small bumps seem to pop up at various times during the day and you can pop them. Although I noticed if you pop them they seem to stick around.
Arms
Chest
Stomach
Groin
Genitals
     Just itch non-***** bumps I've been tested for herpes, HPV, HIV (neg)
Thighs/Legs
Feet
    Very similar looking to the hands


I've seen a dermatologist who gave me some Doxycycle (in case it was MRSA, Staff, folicitis) and some scabies ointment neither seems to have had any effect.

So I saw my GP and he thought it sounded like I was describing an anxiety disorder (because I often have panic attacks which I have since attributed to copious amounts of caffeine) and has prescribed me to 40MG of Citalopram which seems to be doing something I'm not sure what other than making me insane.

I am a heavy drinker but my liver/kidney tests came back all bueno minus slightly a elevated RBC which I'm assuming is due to the fact that I'm a heavy smoker. (I'm working on quitting smoking cause I read that high RBC can cause you to itch...somewhere on the internet.)

The itch creams don't seem to be helping nor do the OTC antihistamines.

I figured it might have been my bedding/clothes so I've washed both with soap and without many times thinking it may be an allergy but to no avail.

It is also very hard to sleep at night due to itching and now the Citalopram unless I A) drink a lot of beer to just pass out B) Take a very cold shower and ice my thighs and genitals (Cause I haven't figured out how to ice my butt comfortably.)

I am also a vegetarian and take multi vitamins daily as well as B12, Iron, etc.

I'm having the same problem, and I'm scared to hell! At first I thought it may be bed-bugs, but it just hasn't gone away... I'm praying every day that it isn't herpes...

I have red itchy bumps all around my thigh areas, my buttocks and one one the head of my penis. Also, they have moved all throughout my body, and I am having little one's show up between my fingers and whatnot. I also thought it was because of the couch I was sleeping on, but recently I cleaned everything and got a bed, and I still can't sleep due to the itch. Insomnia is driving me to have other mental problems, so if these bumps are stress related, they're helping to keep themselves alive. I'm scared to go get tested, and I'm financially unable to.

PLEASE help me with some information... I'm scared for my life!

Have you done any research on scabies?  It sounds like what my son has.  I did extensive research on the internet and am treating it with a combination of Neem oil, olive oil, and tea tree oil (equal amounts of each)  All totally natural, found in any health food store or co-op.  This oil is clearing up the irritated skin and the itching has completely gone away.  I hope this helps.

same thing here. thought it was scabies, treated with prometherine and nothing happened. went to doctor and he said it was an allergic reaction, prescribed me a steroid cream and an antihistamine which worked until i ran out. I dont have insurance so i cant afford to keep going back. this is driving me insane because i cant sleep at night. i havent had sex in over a year so i know it's not from that cause it just showed up about 2 or 3 months ago. itching and bumps are predominantly on my inner thighs, buttocks, behind the knees, matter of fact, i'll just say my whole legs, waistline, and spreads up to my stomach back and arms. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

I think a few of you most definitely have scabies- I'm surprised that no one (esp if you've seen a doctor) has tested for, or even mentioned, scabies as a possibility (unless they did & you just didn't say so in your post)- bc a number of posts have mentioned the most common tell-tale signs of scabies- most especially itchiness between fingers &/or toes, as well as the mention of the itchiness getting worse at night- scabies are not only limited to fingers & toes though, which are the two most common areas, followed by the hands, feet & genital areas- but really, scabies can appear anywhere on the body.

And, to note, scabies are actually...mites- that burrow into the skin & lay eggs. 'Xcuse me for a second.... Whoo. Anyway, they can be treated & killed with medications- but listen- scabies are VERY contagious- so stay the FUNK away from me, bc you may as well kill me before you tell me that I have little bugs burrowing into my skin & laying eggs.

I'm a girl and i have the exact same symptoms minus the penis part. I itch all over my inner thighs, ***, and i just recently recovered from a breakout in mad hives all over my abdomen, which were also itchy. i thought it was scabies too but when my doctor checked me out he said scabies did not behave like what the rash was doing and it was for sure hives. I recently have been consistently and recreationally taking amphetamines, would that cause something like this? I know it caused my hives, but I'm curious about the night itching. It's so annoying!!

it sounds like bed bugs to me i would recommend stripping all your bedding hot washing it at least 2 times, and throughly vacuuming your whole matterace or have it professionally cleaned if possible and done forget to vacuum your floor! its not going to go away if your re bite every night and possibly the reason that its only on your lower torso is only removing part of your clothing to masturbate??? hope this helps

I really wish someone would give some helpful information on how to treat this because I have the same exact thing. I'm 20 years old, male and can't find any help. Don't have money for a doctor but that wouldn't help considering no one has had a successfully diagnosis. I went to the doctor about a month ago and he diagnosed me with herpes. He was in the room for 30 seconds, diagnosed me and left. I felt like my life was over. it sure sounds like herpes in the genital area, but after that nothing adds up. The sores on my penis were the worst part at that time but now I cannot stop scratching myself. Not one min of a day goes by without me being itchy. seems like it keeps getting worse. I can't sleep at night and im literally going crazy. I have been dealing with this for 3 months and I can't take it any more. if I don't fix this I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

Guys, I have the EXACT same problem. I am scared to go to the doctor. But it is an uncontrolable itch! I'm usually okay through out the day but once I'm home and take my pants off, all I want to do is scratch and scrathc! And I've also woken up in the middle of the night scratching my self. Its so frustrating. It first started with a small circle that looked like a ring worm on my left inner thigh but then it spread and I now have it on both left and right inner thigh. I don't know what to do or what to get. Any suggestions besides going to the doctor? :/

If one more funkng person says "Duh, I have the same problem!" instead of actually supplying us with some USEFULL information I am going to hack your computers, find your personal information, withdraw your addresses and show up at your house in the middle of the night and beat you within an inch of your life with a blunt object and then force you to scratch the red sores on my penis head, that "Guess what!?" They look exactly like yours!!! Who knew... Um you retards know this IS the internet right? Billions of people use it... That means that it is not really statistically impressive that we all have the same symptoms considering we are searching for the same KEYWORDS on a World Wide Web consisting of a the majority of the population of this planet! Jeez' Just don't post anymore "OMG Me Too!" BS, lets try to take this forum into a solution oriented direction, we have discovered the problem, we all have it, if you are new to this thread, we don't care if you have it also or how scared you are about it(We are all scared, we all love our dicks just as much as you love yours), unless you know how to cure or treat it, in which case please share that information.

I have the same problem, have had this problem for two years. I think it is caused from drinking, I stop drink and every thing cleared up. Then I started drinking again, and everthing came back. So I not sure, but I am going to stop drinking again, and see if it clears up. I will let you know if it works.

Okay, I'm new to this place and also looking for answers.  We all are obviously experiencing the same symptoms here.  Although after reading a lot of your posts, Im starting to wonder about  the credibility of my own medical history now.  

I will start off by saying that I too suffer from the damn itch.  I have noticed that it is activated by damp heat.  After shower, mowing grass, sweating even doing dishes.  The only thing I have found that even touches the itch is BACTINE (Pain relieving Cleansing spray).  Whom ever wants to try this, let me know if it helps you too. I would be interested to know. As far as what it is? Where did I get it? Hell, I don't know either.    

  Okay.  I guess this is the time that I get to tell you all about me now.  I am 31 year old male, married for almost 11 years now. My 6 year old son that has molluskum.  Which concerns me that maybe it could be related in a way.  His has recently started spreading more.  But are different than mine.   My 9 year old girl seams healthy with no symptoms of any kind.  My wife, same with no symptoms of any kind.  Myself, I was diagnosed with genital herpies (herpes) in 1999 while I served in the USN.  My spouse, 2 kids and about 12 years  later, she has no symptoms of herpies (herpes).  I have always for as long as I can remember in even my teen years having some type of athlete's foot.  After reading some posts on here in other areas, In a lot of cases it started either on the foot or hand.  I must say that My Herpies (herpes) started off as one larger pimple looking thing and red too.my penis did everything you guys said yours did. Hense, why I am questioning my medical hystory. Plus a military doctor is who diagnosed me.  I was 19 years old, and the doctor maybe 25 years old.  It all started in 1999,( if it is at all linked with the herpies (herpes) thing). I can remember seeing the bumps on my feet about 5-6 years ago, just thinking for some strange reason it was just bad athlete's foot.  About 2 years ago my right hand started to become dry.  The palm of my right hand. Lotion, no problem. again, again,again. same hand. then itch again you get the idea. Well today, I noticed that i have on my right forearm 4 spot that look exactly like an ant bite, but ITCH sooooooooo  much worse.  I went and got my flashlight and saw a whole lot more than I really was hoping for.  I put the flashlight against my skin, but facing to where the light is shining down my arm to cause shaddows on anything that might be sticking up.  There were thousands of those little water blister type itchy suckers.  Literally made the hair on the back of my neck stand.  going to make appointment tomorrow and once I find out some information, I'll post what doc says. All I can say is DO NOT SCRATCH ANY ITCH.  Try the Bactine and let me know.  Good luck all and I'll get back to you soon.

This same thing is happening to me, although I am a girl. I am 17 years old almost 18 and have had 2 sex partners. But haven'e had sex in almost a year and all of a sudden about 2 weeks ago I broke out into this horrible itch. The itch started before I ever began to get bumps. I do not think I have herpes because both guys I was with were virgins at the time. This is really freaking me out. I thought maybe it was dry skin due to the cold winter and then coming into spring. So I bought some Aveeno lotion and body wash that is fragrance free to make sure it is not an allergic reaction to something. These bumps DO NOT appear on my genitals. Only in my upper thigs and on my legs. It has become so hard for me to do anything without itching. Help?!

What do the bumps look like and is it just a rash, or does it have some type of pattern to it or a trail?  If it has a trail it could be scabies, but if it's just a dry scaly type of rash then it could be psoriasis.  Mine turned out to be psoriasis.  Give us more details on what it looks like and if it's in patches or just little bumps.

I went through the exact same thing a few months ago, it literally drove me crazy!  I went to so many stupid doctors and didnt have any luck.  Matter of fact, the first doctor I went to, I told him I thought it was scabies and he didnt think so, he thought it was an std but my test came back clean so then he told me I was allergic to something. Weeks went by and I was doing more and more research and I finally decided I knew it was scabies.  I went to my doctor and told him he needed to give me permetherine cream and we would try it out.  Permetherine is one of the leading treatments for scabies but most doctors (like mine) will give you a 1% cream with DOES NOT work, It may kill some of the bugs but not all of them, and the ones it does not kill will become immune to it and that makes it harder to get rid of them.  Ask for the 5% cream because it is the only thing that works.  Put it all over your body and leave it on for 14 hours and do the same thing again one week later.  To be safe, do it every week for a month.  I know what you all are going through and it is very embarrassing and almost unbearable.  

Other Remedies:
Take a bath in Tea Tree Oil (Only pour about 20 drop in the bath tub and DO NOT PUT DIRECTLY ON AN OPEN WOUND (The bath will burn a bit after 10 minutes) Only stay in for 20 minutes max

Ecinacea and Garlic supplements are good to help your skin heal faster

Use a lotion with Vitamin E in it because Vitamin E is what helps skin heal and stay healthy

** Also Permetherine is very toxic to the body and afterward I experience very painful abscess so be careful and if you get these see a doctor immediately because although my itching is gone I am still getting these abscess because it is a form of staph.

Hope this helps:)

Im not a virgin and i have exactly the same problem, red itchy bumps on the inside of my thighs in my groin on my scrotum now and even on the head of my penis, the ones on my penis are not as itchy but very worrying. i have seen a doctor and he just prescribed some antibiotics for a hair follicle infection and gave me some cream. i have only had sex with one girl and i know for a fact that i have been her only sexual partner which leads me to believe its not an STI. So after being on antibiotics for almost a month and these bumps are not going im getting very worried. PLEASE HELP!

This is crazy but i thought i was the only one with this. I've went to a skin doctor and she told me i had some kind of bacteria that causes the boils and she say they would go away in a week when i applied Elocon cream (Mometasone furoate). Surprisingly the cream worked but only for a month now the boils are back and even worsted than before. Now they are bigger and more itchy and before i didnt have any on my penis but now i do. I have it so hard to work lately because i have to take a break or two just to scratch my boils. Can anyone help me :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

Well i have them too and im14 years old. I have tried many things to stop them.tips that might help:
Dont scratch them
Take colder showers
And soak in colder water, use lotion and baby powder after taking bath (uncented)
Take showers NOT baths, because sitting in your filth might cause irritation!

In the winter they seam to go away or get better and i dont think u need to worry, it might be because of shaving (iritaion)im not the smartest person in the world but this helps!! Good luck mine are  getting better:)

Jock Itch is quite different than OP's problem, jock itch is an actual rash, not just raised bumps in the genital area. What you have doesn't sound like Jock Itch. Go look up some photos of Jock Itch to get an idea.

As a sufferer of the same exact thing as the OP (pingo) I'd like to mention to other sufferers that I'm currently trying a cream (started using it last night, was told to use 3 times a day) which is 0.1% Mometasone furoate and 2% Miconazole nitrate. Combined with Claritin Loratadine 10 mg pills. My situation has improved noticeably, however this is quite tentative since, as I mentioned, I started these medications last night (16 hours ago).

I'll keep you guys updated.

I too am having these exact same issues. At first,  it was just itchy spots on my buttocks and backs of my legs.  Next,  I got a HUGE red,  itchy bump on my upper leg.  Then,  I got small yellowish-clear bumps on my fingers. Last, I got a small, very itchy bump on the side of my penis. It actually looked like it had a hole in it. I also got a small red bump on the head of my penis. I finally managed to get in to a Dermitologist. The Dermitologist said this looked like scabies, but my primary doctor disagreed because my fiancée doesn't have them,  and they are very contagious.  I was prescribed Permethrin (5%), and  Doxycycline. After one week,  and no improvement after treatment,  I called back.  He then prescribed me a steroid pack (12 days) and had me pick up some clariton.  After about the 3rd day, things started clearing up. Finally, after about 5 to 6 days, everything except for the large bump on my leg was gone, and I was itch free! A few days passed (still on the steroids) and the bumps on my penis started to return. I am now starting to get a couple of spots on my arms and legs again. My fingers are still good though. I plan on calling the dermitologist back tomorrow to make a follow up. He mentioned something about taking a biopsy of the large spot on my leg, so maybe that will provide some sort of resolution. My fiancee still doesn't have these spots, and we sleep in the same bed, so I don't believe this is scabies, bed bugs, or anything of the sort.

Please keep us updated!

I, also have the same exact situation as you can see from my two previous posts. After 9 days on the medication mentioned the results are:

- The small blisters on my fingers have essentially vanished, a couple medium sized blisters popped and healed yesterday
- The itchiness has gone down 90%, but I still notice it when I don't take the Claritin.
- 85% - 95% of the spots on my thighs/waist/stomach have disappeared. There are still a couple.
- My penis, which was very dry and somewhat inflamed has become so much better. There sill are 3 dark-red spots on the head and one on the top of shaft.

My situation improved rapidly at first after starting medication but is now at a somewhat steady line. :-/

Also, every day 1-2 itchy red spots show up. I just put the cream on them and they stop itching and go away in time.

Sorry to post-spam but what I find depressing is that the OP (pingo) later made a thread ~3 months after this one saying that after he got better it came back in some fashion:

I made an appointment on june 28th to go get this figured out. I have a red patch on my penis head and several red bumps between my legs and on my butt. I thought they were ingrown hairs cause i stupidly decided to see what the hairless look would feel like and I thought I shaved wrong. At night i stay awake cause it feels like bugs are crawling all over me. My feet have blisters. The bumps on my body feel like there are BB gun pellets inside. I try to squeeze them but nothing pops out. Im sexually active but with one person. He is also itching (but we thought it was because he is a swim instructor and is in chlorine water alot). So ill let you know what my doctor says. I just want it to stop! I hate looking and feeling like i have a STD

I'll definitely keep you posted on what's going on. This is horrible. I called today and scheduled a follow up with my dermatologist. The earliest appointment that would work with my schedule was July 5th, so we'll see how that goes. The new thread from the original poster is definitely disheartening. I'm debating on whether or not to mention this thread to the dermatologist. I hate to be the guy who goes into the office rambling on about what he found on the Internet, but I mean at this point, I just want things to be normal. Hopefully they'll biopsy and find something, or he'll have another idea. I'm going to ask him if he has ever seen anything like this before, and if he says no, I'll probably end up going to a different doctor. My fiancee and I are getting married in November, and I want these stupid bumps and itching spells to be gone for good!

obviously got the same thing. started with no rash just extremely itchy especially on tighs. then got one red dot on the side of the head of my penis. which now (2or3 months later) i have more dots. which once one goes away another pops up. i just used cortazone on my legs and butt which helps alot.  i got those wierd bumps on my hands which when i pop, clear liquid comes out. just recently the red bumps on penis moved to testacals as well. also bad rash looking stuff on my feet. only reason im so worried is im 17 and pretty sexually active, (bout 4 partners total) and 1 was pretty slutty. the rest im not worried about. ive used anti-biotics for a while but NO results. way too scared to tell my mom but looks like i might have to. even more scared to tell my girlfriend, which i have been putting off sex with for a while... but stupidly had unprotected drunk sex with a few times, which thankfully she didnt notice but now about a month later, she shows NO signs. but yeah neosporin or cortozone help on the feet and legs but not the tip of my penis. (which is getting worse) highly doubt its bed bugs for any of you because i'm on vacation (new bed) and its not getting any better. reaaaaaally would like this to go away.

Just a quick update: I managed to get in to see the dermatologist today. He biopsied one of the spots. Should have the results in a few days.

Avatar_m_tn
yeah man, let us know when you get the ressults. i did ALOT of research and i've come to the conclusion that it may be a fungal infection of some sort. DO NOT use anti-biotics. that makes it grow. all the signs point to a fungus and i've been trying anti-fungal creams on the spots on my junk and its been working great! im down to like two spots and thier fading. my legs and butt are cleared up but my feet are still irritated but i've been lazy about putting the cream on them. my hands cleared up on thier own. i think i might have had it longer than most of you and this could clear up on its own for yall as well. hope this helps.

I, too, spent many, many hours researching this online. At first I thought it was some sort of eczema but came to the conclusion that it is some sort of fungal infection. It didn't fit any of the fungal infections I came upon however. The anti-fungal cream I mentioned also helped my but I still get some itchy red bumps and welts which come and go.

I'm currently in an extremely warm and dry climate (deserty) and was wondering if this is aggravating the discomfort. Question to all: how is the climate of where you're staying?

Did everyone shave the region right before the symptoms appeared?  I shaved that area for the first time and have the same exact symptoms as everyone else.  It is obviously not an std so no worries there.

No, I hadn't previously shaved when the symptoms appeared.

I think that is another issue, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaving#Razor_burn

Ok, so I got the  biopsy results back. The doctor said it's a form of allergic contact dermatitis, but of course, they don't know what caused it. They gave me some cream to put on it, which hasn't been helping, and told me to continue taking Claritin.

I guess I'll schedule an appointment with an allergist here in the next couple of weeks. I just can't accept anything less than a permanent resolution.

Avatar_n_tn
Hm. Why would an allergic contact dermatitis start and be focus on the penis and the groin area?

Those who are suffering:
- Did you move/travel recently?
- Did you change furniture/detergent/sheets?
- What is the weather like in your area?

So, I slowed down the use of the corticosteroid, after ~3 weeks of use, due to long term use side-effects. My situation is deteriorating. A couple days ago I noticed that my scrotum now has these bumps which hadn't appeared before.

The 2-3 welts on my waist/hip bone are not going anywhere... New itchy bumps are appearing on my buttocks.

Why would allergic contact dermatitis appear as little hand blisters, welts and bumps on legs/thighs and pimply bumps on penis/scrotum?

****, I'm going mad...

Getting worse.

I am starting to believe it's scabies, and assume the hand blisters were an allergic reaction.

Also, the results of your lab test can be explained that they biopsies a wheal, which is an allergic reaction to the scabies. Also, those who previously tried medicating for scabies: it take time and effort. Even after gone the symptoms will appear.

I have exactly the same symptoms as most of you guys. I read up on rashes and there are dozens of causes if not hundreds. That's why the Dermatologists battle to find a full cure. My thoughts.....if so many people have this problem, maybe we should compare notes?? What has changed in our lives recently.
I've had this problem since November 2010. And I believe that it is internal and not external i.e. systemic and not contact. I was told that it was fungul (type of athletes foot) and paid about $200 in medication that did not work.

Ive had these symptoms for 3 months now, Doctors gave me anti-histamines and steroid cream. All the cream did was sooth the itching. After reading this forum I asked about scabies and it turns out thats what I have. The females eat through your skin then lay eggs, when the eggs hatch they eat your hair follicle causing red lumps. Ive been given a cream with pesticide in it that you cover your full body it. Apply it once and wash off after 8 hours then do the same in a week to kill any further eggs that hatch. Its murder waiting that week but shower frequently, only wear clothes once then wash, wash bedding and towels frequently and after the second dose of cream your healed although you will continue to itch for about another 2 weeks. I know how bad it is and im soooo happy im better now, life is great!

Sounds to me like its a form of Ezema caused by stress.
Ive got the same symptoms down to a T and I know its not Scabies. (Takes 4 months for it to effect you?) Plus if you look at the symptoms of scabies its not like the bumps on the hands. " Clear, itchy, water filled"
My suggestion to most of you, if you happen to have every single symptom the first person had, is to clean up your diet, relax, and work out. Remember, your skin is the largest organ in your body.

its takes around 4 months for the symptoms of scabies to show meaning you probably caught it in the winter which is the most common time to catch scabies.

I've had the same problem. I have clear/flesh colored blisters/bumps on my hands and feet and when I pop them clear liquid comes out. On my penis I have a few red itchy bumps that are ONLY itchy in the morning when I first wake up. I am very sexually active sleeping with 4-5 different girls at a time, but all of them have been long term partners that I've had sex with many times before and these symptoms are new. I was tested for STIs several times and went to a doctor who assured me this is not sexually transmitted (unless it is scabies but you dont have to have sex to get scabies) which was a major relief. He referred me to a dermatologist, I have not been yet. I have been treated for scabies, but it's possible that I neglected to wash my sheets. I took prednisone for ~10 days and that helped with the rash on my leg. I'm going to try the Tea Tree oil in the bath and see if that helps. I wish I could provide more helpful information.

I went to the dermatologist today after two months of going through torture, itching so hard I've been bruising myself. It seems to react when you press the area against something which is why they love the thighs, stomache and private areas. They are absolutely scabie mites which can be caused by uncleanliness or coming into contact w/ an infected person. I started getting these bites after I began working at a special ed center taking care of kids physically. I thought, fleas, bedbugs, dustmites etc, but after finding this forum really started to research scabie mites. I went to a very reputable dermatologist in Beverly Hills, CA and he said it is absolutely scabie mites. He prescribed me w/ PERMETHRIN 5% which you apply all over the body and leave for 12 hours then repeat in 7 days. He also prescribed TRIAMCINOLONE 0.1%  to apply twice a day to help w/ the itching until it goes away completely. Run to the dermatologist as fast as you can. The tea tree bath helps, scrubbing in the shower helps, but it doesn't kill these things. The rest of my family has not caught this, but my husband is hispanic and I am white, b/c of my kids being mixed they have remained ok b/c they are for some reason more prone to my blood...good for them, bad for me. Good luck, I hoped this helped you! And BTW  the doctor visit was $85 and the 2 prescription creams were $33....not as bad as I thought it would be w/ out insurance!

Guys, !!!MUST READ!!!

What the vast majority of you are describing is thankfully not Herpes or any other STD. What it actually is, is Scabies.

To get rid of this Hideous Itchy as hell, pain in the ***, bug is to go see your doctor immediately (as in right now.. go on get up and leave!) so he can give treatment. MAKE SURE IT IS SCABIES TREATMENT! as anything else will be a placebo.
DO NOT!!!! sleep in your own bedroom for a couple of days. You MUST wash all clothes and bedding on a hot wash then tumble dry to make sure all mites are DESTROOOYYED!!!!
Also vacuum the entire bedroom including the mattress and if need be, spray bleach the matress as this will also help.

The information i have posted is all from doctors advice and hours and hours of painful itchy research into scabies.

So get healing people and close this ***** *** forum down!
...... ******* scabies

Avatar_f_tn
What your conditions are is called (SCABIES)...
It is a highly contagious skin disease...my sister and her kids got from her eldest son who is only 8 yrs.old....it NOT a STD,but you can get with close personal contact from anybody...Therefore it is a cure for it....it is called (PERMENTHRIN CREAM)...apply it all over your body from neck to the crack of your toes..
leave the cream on for at least 12 hours..then wash it off...the cream actually paralize the scabies...when you wash the cream off you will wash the scabies off as well....there will be a little more itching after.....but the scabies are gone and the eggs they hatch in your skin is dead..that's where the rashness come in at!!! Thank You EVERYONE TAKE CARE!!!!!

Just by reading through your posts I can tell there is a big correlation b/w people developing blisters on there hands and/or fingers and the mystery rash/itchy lump things on the penis. I cannot remember what the anti-inflammatory medication I started taking for my foot was called; however, I had a strange reaction to it and it gave me gross blisters all over my hands and fingers. This could be what's going on. IF YOU HAD SCABIES, YOU WOULD EASILY KNOW IT. SCABIES DO NOT BITE IN LOCALIZED PATTERNS RATHER YOU WILL HAVE BITES EVERY WHERE. IF YOU'D BEEN TO A DOCTOR THEY WOULD KNOW INSTANTLY THAT IT WAS SCABIES. I went to three doctors now who gave me the same story as a lot of you - 'I don't know what it is; it's not an STD or a fungal infection; it looks like bites but it can't be scabies because it would be everywhere and it can't be bedbugs because they bite in patterns of lines and are also not completely localized blah blah blah blah......"

SO Here are my questions for you guys:

How many of you have been treated for injuries with an anti-inflammatory medication?

How many had blisters on hands/fingers?

How many have the itchy rash/hives sh*t and do you notice more at night?

FINALLY, one other possibility I think some of your symptoms COULD be describing, (just a hypothesis because I've been researching this god-forsaken rash for months now like it's some kind of new hobby) is sun-poisoning, which can cause itchy rash worsened in warmer conditions and itchy sores that itch like hell on your penis/genitals, among other obvious things. Especially if you recently began using a tanning bed (which then of course puts you at risk for fungal infections) and not covering up, certain areas that don't see sun often can become traumatized and you won't realize how much so until the skins had time to undarken; it's the skin's way of getting rid of dead cells. Upper level tanning beds can penetrate the skin to multiple layers deep, meaning a much longer time waiting for new skin cells to surface that don't itch like hell fire.

SO my last question out of curiosity is how many of you have been tanning recently in a setting where you're butt/thighs/ or genitals would have been directly exposed (i.e. tanning bed)

Just my own hypotheses and I'm not claiming I'm correct, just suddenly had a small epiphany when reading through JSCOTTs and ITCHYHELLS posts on here. If you two are still viewing this please let me know what you think especially. For the people in the room still having issues, I hope you'll input on this as well. Better to come up with ideas to try to figure this out than keep reading the same story of the mystery itch from hell. Thanks guys.

I have had the same issue for about 2wks now,itchy bumps on the outside of the buttocks,in between the thighs,now to my back, and even to my fingers on my right hand. I go to the doc and I inquired about scabies and she tells me no no no its not that,or doesn't look like an std or hiv rash. She said its an allergic reaction to something. Would have been great if she would have looked at me for more than 5mins. Then she prescribes me hydroxycline for 5 days and if that doesn't work to come back and see her....Benadryl is doing a better job then that **** they gave me. I am unsure what this is but I am going to beat down every docs door till I find a resolution and when I do ill tell ya cuz this itch sux! Also side note: I noticed an itch with 2red bumps that looked like bug bites when it first started and I had spent the night in my bestfriends house who by the way just found out she has hsv-1...I'm wonder if that has anything to do with this???

I am 54 years old, insulin dependent diabetic. I have been housebound all summer until a few weeks ago. 8 years ago in california i delt with no see ums (biting midges), nope this is different.  Here in Missouri I have delt with chiggers, while this seems similar to chiggers where i have them is not where I would expect chiggers to get me. I do not believe it is chiggers. This seems to be affecting my arms and upper back and one in the bottom part of my hairline.  here is exactly what happens. I feel an itch, I touch it to discover a 2 to 4 mm bump, the more I scratch the sucker the more it itches until I scratch the sucker off at this point the itch is insane as hell and tender painful at the same time. when i scratch it off it leaves a scab. over the next few days the small sore grows and recesses (sorta caves inward), they leave purple colored scars that are very ugly. I currently have  4 on my left upper arm from my elbow to my shoulder 3 on the topside of my left hand, 9 on my right arm from elbow to my shoulder. 7 on my upper back from my shoulder blades to my neck. Most of the ones on my back are older and are the purple d scar thingys. 2 days ago I began to experiment with the ones on my left hand and started pouring peroxide  on them. this seems to be stopping their spreading power. I tried not to scratch 3 new ones on my right  upper arm with a menthol based anti itch  cream (didnt help)  I tried 1 % cortisone (didnt help). I would love to go to the dr, but my hubby (Thankyou president Obama) used to work offshore out of Louisiana, is now working locally for 8 bucks an hour. no more medical insurance. Funny how i used to take going to the dr , buying steaks, having all the insulin i needed ( i half dose a lot to make my insulin last) shopping for stuff on a whim,for granted!!  well that is my past now, and thats ok with me i muddle thru anyway.  dr visit is just simply out of the question. I pray i may have described what I am dealing with where someone will  recognize my symptoms and be able to tell me what to do to stop getting bit and scabbed up. I already know that peroxide destroys tissue, but it is making the scabs stop growing and so at least the scars will be smaller. thank you for reading

I have the same issue as many of you and I was prescribed Clobex spray by my dermatologist.  It cost almost $50 for the bottle but the itching stops almost instantly after it is sprayed on.  The redness went down and many of the bumps disappeared, but after I masturbated the bumps did seem to pop back up.  Maybe this solution will work for some of you.

I was tested for scabies and was prescribed a cream and it didn't work.  Natural creams like Burts Bees Blemish Stick and another natural cream didn't work either.

I got tired of all the creams and just accepted the bumps are my punishment for cheating on my girlfriend and getting oral sex from a **** and then having sex with a very sexually active friend the same night.  I pray for forgiveness and started eating healthier and occasionally use MRSA soap in my college's football locker room.  The scaly bumps on my hands are gone. The red bumps on my thighs and penis no longer itch, but are visible and ugly.

Try to be careful and have self control is my lesson.  Good luck to everyone and God Bless.

OK guys, I know this is going to sound pretty strange, but it's probably a yeast infection. At least that's what mine was. I'm a 36 year old male. I had all of these symptoms and they scared the holy s*** out of me.  After about a month of antifungal creams/soaps, alcohol wipes and calamine I figured I had to bite the bullet and talk to my doctor. Apparently we all have some sort of yeast in our systems. They are usually kept in check by our immune systems, but once they populate unchecked they can cause all kinds of issues. It's referred to as Candida. There are a number of sites dedicated to it. The one I've found that is most useful is http://www.thecandidadiet.com/

This isn't a plug for the site and I have no interest in it other than it helped me. It gives you a number of ways to control it and it's also loaded with helpful tidbits of information.

Hope this helps out.

My room mate and I have developed the same problem for the most part. One thing I noticed that was different from everyone else is that we don't have bumps or boils. Just a rash in the same areas and the uncontrollable itching. We went in seperately to get it checked and the doctor said it was definitely SCABIES. It will appear anywhere you have tight clothing and that is why we've had it around the waist, buttocks, etc... When you sit down your pants are tight against your *** and then there's the obvious rubbing of your junk against the inside of your boxers that would cause it to appear in these areas. We were perscribed the forementioned permetherine cream and are going to start application tonight. NOTICE: if you have tried this treatment and it has not worked for you.. This could be because you didn't actually get rid of the bug in your house. If you don't wash all of your bedding, clothes, mattress, vacuum your floor, or clean any other surface you come into contact with, these bugs will remanifest themselves in a matter of time. This is why the problems seem to go away and then come back. if you use the cream from head to toe, sleep in it, wake up and clean EVERYthing in your house and do all of your laundry.. It is likely that the problem will go away. I cannot stress enough how important it is to clean. If you all are suffering as bad as I am then you know it's worth some extra cleaning to get this to go away. I think I'm going to get spray for head lice and see if that will help. It may not, but in theory it should help right? No harm in trying. Keep us updated and hopefully together we can get this problem figured out.

If you are ithchy all over ur body and cant sleep causeyour scratching the whole night... thats scabies. Go to the emergency room tell them that. The one with the itchy around the tigh and butt area and bump on penis is something completely different. With scabies its almost impossible to sleep at night and the scratching sensation feels overwelmingly good. I am currently dealing with the other itchyness. With this one, the area that is itchy scabs due to scratching.  But its not all over my body and i can sleep fairly well under the cercumstances.

Spiders? lol that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard in my life. What are the odds that all these people have this coincidental vampire spider infestation that's causing them to itch so bad it's driving them crazy? I for one, don't let spiders chill up in my house and that's definitely not the problem in my case. You say problem solved cause you found some spider webs. Well there's moths around my porch light at night maybe they're comin in and attacking me in my sleep. If you have moths by your house they could be attacking you so get rid of the moths and the itching will stop.

Be suborn with your doctors and insist to him/her that you believe that this is the case, otherwise they will continuously go for the easy option of saying it's an allergy, telling your doctor that other members of your household or people you have been around are suffering similar symptoms, this will help your cause.

I am suffering the exact same as you guys, have been given cream to stop the itching but not the problem itself, tomorrow I'm going back to my doctor and not leaving there without a prescription for scabies treatment.

This was in Florida, I was a resident of the gulf coast (ANYONE LIVE ON THE GULF LET ME KNOW) Anyways I saw the dermotoligist a few times and they said they didnt know what it was..So after sleepless nights and much stress I moved to my mom's in NC because she seems to think its from the BP oil spill since i was only 10 minutes from the coast and the dispersents were making people in the area have skin problems. So Dermotologist In NC said it looked like herpies (herpes) so he test and results were NEG. Then He said it looks like syphilis test results also where negative. He kept giving me Topicort and it seemed to help the itch but never cured it ...So last week I went and saw him again since a large bite looking thing popped up on my thigh and he biopsyd it and it came back reaction to bug bite but he couldnt find a mite in there.. So he gave me the 5% cream, I took it last night I'm praying this will all be gone and I can move on with my life.. Its bad enough to have scars on your penis that will probably never go away. but to think about bugs crawling in your skin is HORRIBLE!!

Does anyone itch worse in the shower when water hits your skin. All mine is basically on my penis/inner thigh/butt/hip. I also have psoriasis that comes like 1/year. and I get those clear water blisters between my fingers but only a few a week , I pop them and there gone..

If anyone knows how to make scars go away I'd be great full on that info to.

I've had this problem for the past few weeks. I doubt it's an std as it started just a couple weeks after I'd been tested. However, two major things did happen. My mother bought a laundry soap I'm allergic to, and I bought a pack of underwear I've never tried before. The brand of the laundry soap is Sun, which also makes All detergent. The underwear is Alfani brand from Macy's. Considering the itching is worst at the groin, and there's all this talk of allergies, I'm suspecting the underwear might be treated with something that is a common allergen.

I have the same issue right now.  For those of you who think it's scabies I am 100% positive it is not.  I have actually had scabies before and you would know if it was that.  First off scabies starts in one area as a cluster of bumps and slowly spreads over a couple of months.  The itching would most likely continue and be somewhat tolerable for about a month or two b4 you really took notice of them.  Secondly scabies spreads in a "streaming" pattern.  Meaning they move from place to place on the body by crawling or burrowing there.  If you start with symptoms on your hands it would be months b4 you experienced symptoms on your penis area.  I know for a fact what I have is contact dermatitis.  I recently experienced some pretty good results by taking my prescribed claritin medication.  This did not completely solve the problem though.  I began trying to think back on any changes I might have made in my diet, detergent usage, or hygiene products shortly before I had the reaction.  After thinking back I actually figured out that I had changed fragrances of my hair shampoo and conditioner.  Though the brand was still the same I actually figured out the ingredients were a lot different.  Turns out the shampoo and conditioner I switched from just so happened to be hypo-allergenic.  The ones I switched to were not.  After I switched back a few days ago the bumps and itching slowed down but I got a bit ahead of myself and stopped  taking the meds so it came back the day after I stopped taking them.  I'm going to go back on them and continue using the hypo-allergenic shampoo and see how that works.  The brand btw was Suave.  If you use a shampoo or conditioner check the label because that may be your issue.  Allergies to hair shampoo and conditioner are very common...that's why almost every brand makes hypo-allergenic.  A good thing to think about is the areas affected and what could have had contact with all of those areas.  Food allergies are an exception here b/c those can effect your body everywhere b/c you digest it.  This method is how I came up with shampoo b/c I wash and condition my hair everyday when I shower and some of the shampoo actually gets on your towel when you dry off no matter how well you rinse your hair.  This results  in the shampoo and conditioner making a lot of contact with different areas of your body.

Hi all im 19 and experienced most of what you guys are posting about. But I want you to know not to worry about scabes etc its all treatable and dosnt affect you it just makes you itchy as its as n allergic reaction as your body tries to fight it.

BUT what I have.bb isnt scabes. Anyways I ended up going to the docs 3 times, subscribed 4 creams and 2 sets of seperate anti-biotics all which were expensive and inaffective it wasnt until the doc took a swab that it finally gave me a positive result: heavy growth of BETA HAEM STREP

This is a different bug to scabes but not as serious or itchy. I got prescribed antibiotics which are strong in erythromycin and penicilin both to which are highly affective to these bugs.  If you do have something to which I had I.e. red bumps on inner thigh, buttocks, lower abdominals, scrotum, penis and hands even 1 bump on the head of my penis then I guess theres as chance you have what I have. Note I was prescribed a scabes cream but it was inaffective. I hope this helps everyone I jumped on here to let everyone know as I was so worried,myself and know how it feels, but just go get swabbed, get antibiotics, start treatment, begin to start enjoying life again :) p.s basically what BETA HAEM STREP is a bug not like scabes but is transfered from skin to skin I have no idea where I picked it up but she also stated unlike scabes the rest of my family will not need treating. Im assuming its less contageous then scabes.

I cant believe the feedback on here, just go to the doc as it will not go away without meds, do not believe poosts about food allerges or shampoo reactions or stds it is definately none of them when I mentioned scabes not once did she even consider it as the bumps of scabes are much smaller and itchier and start small. Either way its TREATABLE so stress less and if you have what I have or you have similar bumps to what I described its all treatable so get swabbed and relaxxxx

Believe it or not, mine started on my feet.  When I noticed it on me thighs, I thought it Ringworm.  Then it moved "down under".  Now, I have 2 spots on my head.  At first I thought it was Herpes, but a full blood work-up said no.  It always itches and it feels REALLY good to scratch this skin until it stings from the obvious scratching damage.  I have tried topical creams, bag balm, sulfa, aloe, Vit e, all kinds of supplements and nothing has helped.  I am going to try some powerful fungicide next.  Athletes Foot, Ringworm and Jock Itch are all the same fungus.  So.. maybe..

Honestly you just have to go to the doc 4 this stuff.  It could be anything. eczema, allergies, or anything else.  I found out that mine actually was some kind of fungus that I actually contracted at the gym.  Makes a lot of sense for a lot of people especially guys(who are most of the people on this forum).  I'm a gym rat and I hit the gym about 6 times a week so this was really logical for me.  A prescription will clear you up within a few days.  Either way just go to a doctor!!!

Idk y this is happening and its scary! They r like red bump rashes and I itch them so much that they start to break open and bleed, but even then it keeps itching!!! Its gross and unattractive and I need to figure out at cure, I have used tea tree oil and it works temporarily, but always comes back, I don't wanna be soaked in oil everyday all day so can someone give me a treatment that has worked that I haven't tried yet!?!

From the uk I've been to the doctor about 5 times, I had a minor rash on my hands that looked like pale skin coloured bumps mainly in the webs of my thumb, the doctor gave me a steroid i used it for about a week, it helped a bit. It wasnt really going away so i went to the doctor again and got some antihistamine tablets because they thought it was an allergy didnt do much, still using the cream which helped the itching. Started to moisturise which helped aswel.

The rash on my hands got worse, spread to my wrist, feet, elbows, a bit on my arms which still looked like pale lumps, knees and back of knees and on my waist. I then got diagnosed with Pompholyx ezcema (eczema), and got given a Betnovate ointment 1% works extremely well, obiviously ezcema (eczema) is something you have to live with, the rash is still there but it feint, don't itch when I moisturise (using aqueous cream all over my body, works well because it rubs in easy)

Got a rash on my inner legs now and crotch area its quite feint its red quite big lumps. I thought it could be scabies, not sure though. Doctor said it could be scabies or it could be nothing.. It will itch if your stressed and it is probably all in your head. If this happens to you dry your inner legs thoroughly  then mostourise. Don't have long showers it doesn't help at all, it might feel like it does for a short while. Don't use perfumed shampoo, body wash, conditioner, face wash, hand wash or anything like that, get natural ingredients.. many of the perfurmed products get rid of the natural moisture in your body.

Try not to stress about anything, I go to college and I don't have lots of money so its not easy trying not to stress but just calm down, you'll feel much better.

fyi people...just because benadryl works doesnt mean its allergies.  Benadryl will relieve itching for anything including bug buts or w/e it may be.  It stops histamine production which is what causes itching.

If it is scabies, get a prescription of Eurax or benzyl benzoate. These are topical creams. They have an instant effect on reliefing your pains, but you would need to apply them for a while. Also wash every one of your clothings thouroughly after you take them off, and sun dry them if possible. Sure will help you. Good luck

I use hydrogen peroxide -- it stops the itching, doesn't hurt and keeps the area clean.  I get a rash on the backs of my legs, buttocks and back from the leather seats in my car -- especially in the summer.  I now always sit on a beach towel.  Sitting on vinyl booths or chairs at restaurants or those plastic resin chairs cause a rash too.  If I'm wearing shorts, I always carry a small towel in my purse, and take it out if needed (who cares what people think).  Using laundry detergent that is free and clear helps too.   use free and clear laundry detergent which seems to  help.  Stress seems to make it worse.  It seems to be under control right now.  Hope some of this is helpful.

I have the same problem as it started a month ago with having a red itchy and bumpy in between my tigh.  I havn't gone to the dr yet, but I think it might be scabies.  This is because I brought down a molded washroom and build a new one in it's place.   There is a chance I might have got it from the mold there.

There must be some place you can be tested for free...  Try "Planned Parenthood".  At least call them first, and tell them you have no moolah, but ask what you can do or where you can go to get free tests to diagnose your condition.  

You are the only one who can do this for yourself.

I just got back from the urologist because I was more concerned more about my penis then anything. Go figure he reccomends a dermatologist. My regular doctor thinks it us a contact dermatitis but hydrocortisone 1% doesn't really help and they come and go. I stopped putting it on and it hit worse so I'm going to start again. All std check came back NEG.  Eurologist recommended benydryl and continue hydrocortisone 1% until I see the Derm. My nephew had scabies but the doc didn't believe at all that's what I had on my fingers. Sorry if this is the same as all the other comments. Will post when u see Derm...

Well, i have severe itching for over 3 months now, seen 3 dermatologists 1 house doctor and 1 std doctor.

I have been TESTED on scabies and came out negative 3 times, people around me, including bed partner have no symptoms after me having it for 13 weeks. I got treated for scabies 2 x's (busy with the 2nd time now) I'm on ivermectine pills, wich are also for scabies and are highly recommended, though its not covered by insurance.

If it be scabies i wonder why NOBODY around me has it, since its HIGHLY contagious... One doctor suspected stress/Eczema... could that be it?

Im quite desperate, i wonder since scabies haven't been found in 3 different tests by 3 different doctors, 2 treatments (cream and pills) and I'm still itching like **** :(

Well i just sucked it up and stopped scratching and it has started to go away but is taking a while due to allt he scratching breaking all the bumps.. but its like all rashes the more you scratch it it's going to spread and not go away.. stop scratching and it will eventually go away. well is for me, except a big blister on the left side of the head of my penis, looks like a herpe and its gross gotta take care of that, but im hoping it will clear up with the rest of it as im not scratching it anymore.. just think everytime you want to scratch "i want it gone"

Hey guys i also had a run through in a situation like this, i have seen 5 different doctors before getting to a dermatologist, they said it was an std but everything came back negative. i was put on so many anti-biotic's my immune system was destroyed i had athletes foot, ring worm, dry skin everywhere....so i quit the med's and asked for a biopsy on the head of my penis.( Although i had the rash on my thighs and butt they were smaller bumps.) at first i was given triamcincolone aceitone that helped the thighs and buttox, but didnt help the penis. for the penis i was given a pill for yeast called fllucanzole and the rash began to disappear and reduce in size until i have 2 bumps left...i had the biopsy quit the meds and the bumps came back on the shaft of the penis and the two left on the head got bigger and the rest stayed gone...i thought maybe a std because i was with a few girls in the recent year however i always wrapped my willy so i was a little more hopefull it wasnt, my most recent girlfriend had a yeasty or something, this i can open up on, we were sexually active pretty early in the relationship and i figured she was clean its been like 5 months now since our first time....i didnt wrap my willy :( ....so we are having some sex when i have an orgasm i like to pull out, ****, then put another condom on. i cant help but notice as pull out this stringy spermy colored stuff all over in here....im grossed out, never want to touch her monkey again, she's mad....2 days later the rash BEGINS!!!!!! Im more than happy to post the results from the biopsy it should come within the next week

I have the same problem...I noticed it about three weeks ago. There was one or two very small bumps, almost like a mosquito bite, when I itch them, they turn red as does the area around them. If I take a hot shower, the itching is out of control. I have two on the inside of both of my arms and a couple on my inner thighs. Where my legs meet the bottom of my butt itches like crazy but bumps only appear if I scratch. It is really uncomfortable. Additionally, about a week ago my roommate began exhibiting the same symptoms. We've ruled out bed bugs and we don't share towels or anything like that (she is super OCD) so if it is contagious, I'm not sure how it would have been passed to her. Yikes...I can't figure it out and it is a total inconvenience.

try eating raw organic fruits and veggies, eat alot of grapes! Also bathe in 3 cups organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a warm bath, soak for at least 20 minutes, sores in between fingers sound like scabies so do the tea tree oil bath or dab some directly over infected areas to snuff those little ******* out. ( i had those 10 years ago) for those of you with em on your **** it's and hives from your legs up to your back  and stomach if the hives only come after serious scratching it's probably anxiety or a food allergy, drink chamomile tea this helped the itchy feeling calm down, I thought drinking was affecting me but that wasn't the case, thought it was bedding, nope, thought maybe it was bc I didn't shower everyday, nope. Cut out all dairy, gluten, and sugar and regardless of whatever the cause is this will speed your healing process, I am beginning to believe this issue is new due to poorly produced food, so eat healthy organic foods. If this is a food allergy it's probably gluten ; bread. If you wanna eat bread eat the really expensive organic kinds, or eat a different grain like spelt. I just ate 9 dollars of organic grapes as I heard someone cured cancer just eating nothing but grapes for an entire month. My story is much the same as yours, no sx for the last 3 or 4 months, not an std, started feeling itchy 1 month and a half ago, I have also been using psioflora ( all natural ) cream on my **** in hopes that will cure up so I can be sexually active again.

I feel like the doctors dont really understand what this is but it is happening to alot of us and the remedies that others are asking us to use dont seem to be working, but i feel that if we all go to the doctor within the next few days, they will have a massive report of the same thing. they might say it is a contageous break out that is becomming a pandemic, or they might just try to come to the bottom of this and figure out wat it is. I'm just a nother person here to say, "WHAT THE ****..... I have the same problem" i have welts and a rash that has appereared on my groin, thighs, butt, and began to spread up to my stomach. idk what to do anymore i have had it for about 2 months and it has affected me at work school and in public. it is embarrasing to scratch in front of people especially at work, knowing someone might have seen and you have to constantly sanitize your hands. it is highly irritating. i have already been to the doctor and he told me that it was a type of staff infection. he perscribed me something called TRIMETHYL CEPECAL, or something strange like that idk i had to take it twice a day for 12 days, and it ardly did a thing.. this is extremely irritating and i just want it gone.

I'm going through the same things as all of you. At first I had these little blister looking bumps on my penis. At first one, then two and a few more. They went away and then came back. Sometimes the same place and different places on my penis. It all happened after the first time I had intercourse raw. She said she got checked up before we had sex. It itches and when I shower with hot water the bumps pop and it hurts when the water touches it. It will be there for a week then disappear. Come back in a few weeks then disappear in a month or so. Then come back in a month or a few months later and sometimes lasts longer then usual before it disappear again. I had sex about a couple weeks ago I believe with a rubber and the rubber fell off still hanging on my penis so now I'm doing her raw because it came off so I just kept going. A few days or a week later it appears on my penis again. One on the top and another on the side. I showered and it somewhat popped off leaving a little scar where it was. Then I thought it was ok. A day or two right after that happened. A few more appeared and at the same time I had this pretty big rash appear on my arm above my biceps really close to the armpit. It really itches and now my thighs started to have little red bumps like multiple little red bumps that really itches and now my back, chest, buttocks, shoulders, above my penis where my pubes are really itches. The bumps on my penis are bigger now and they're just one little big bump. A few of them and now its starting to show on my scrotum and they really itch. Especially at night when I go to sleep or when I'm taking a hot shower. After one or two showed up a day later a couple more started showing. Like most of you I'm really frightened and afraid of some kind of disease like std or something cause I have no health insurance. I Google it to see what it was from the symptoms I had and it could be psoriosis (psoriasis), chlamydia, scrabble or something else. I'm really afraid and scared for my life. Can anyone please tell me what the **** it is that I'm going through. if any of you have any ideas or clues of what it is and how I can treat it. Any kind of remedy would be very helpful. I'm going to try and visit a free clinic tomorrow and see what this is. Wish me the best of luck and once I'm finished there and find out what I'm going through. I'll be able to help you guys as well. Pray for me fellas and ill be doing the same for you all.

well it seems that we all have the same symptoms, and none of us has found a cure yet. so lets try and find where did this come from.. I have seen two doctors for now and it has been diagnosed as allergic reaction or bug bites. i have taken around 13 different types of medication in the last 3 months varying between antibiotics, anti fungus, anti allergic and none of them has worked. actually if any of them worked, the marks would disappear for a week and then come back WORSE than before.. So please answer the following two questions and post new ones if you think they might help us find out where did this come from.
* have you had unprotected sex before getting these symptoms(cause i have)?
*have you slept at a different place than your regular place before getting these symptoms(cause i also have)?

Hi.. I have the exact same thing! I have dryness on my hands and feet and if I press the little dry bumps a clear fluid comes out.. On my scrotum and head of my penis I have smooth pink-red bumps that its if I fiddle with them.. There's also one bump above my bladder.. I also sometimes get dry flaky skin on my shaft.. I've been to the gp and ge believes it is a fungal infection.. He gave me an anti fungal and cortezone creme called (don't know if I can post the name) and it kinda works but isn't curing it at all.. I've been tested for herpes and all the big ones.. All negative.. My partner also has the exact same thing so I do think it can be passed on.. However I was told that it can be developed purely on its own.. Like a yeast infection.. Please save me someone..  Ps I also think soap and masturbating makes it worse..

Hello all who may be reading this. I have been afraid to as anybody, or to even mention anything about this, but I have almost the same problem. I don't have bumps everywhere like  some of you, but I do get little clusters of itchy red bumps on the head of my penis. I'm 19 going on 20, have had sex with a number of people, but have settled down with a girl within the past year or so. I  do not use a condom, and sometimes didn't with my last girlfriend. But I have had problems with my penis since I can remember. when I was 4 I got it caught in the zipper! *OUCH* but anyways... I don't think this is due to unprotected sex, as it was happening before I've had sex. But the tip of my penis get's really itchy every once in a while, mainly at night. I also have a bump. on the side of my penis, reminds me of a pimple kinda. But it has no white/black head. It just feels like calcium build up, like in your ears. But u never know... I don't have sex religiously, but I do have sex at least once a week, It's really not that important to me most of the time. Unless there was an argument somewhere down the line. =D But I hope somebody can post like a homemade remedy or something that will help me and everyone else on this thread, and sorry if the answer is right above my post, I didn't read EVERY single one. ^.^
Tyvm!

I've got red bumps on the head of my prnis and was so worried it was herpies (herpes) because I had sex with a girl that I soon found out got around but I'm sure it's not. My whole f@*king body itches to high heavens and I went to see my doctor and he said it seems like an allergic reaction and hives so he also have me some antihistamines like ranitidine, Zyrtec and some other random s&$t that doesn't seem to help but make me hallucinate and have panic attacks but what ive been doing to keep the itch down is using gold bond anti itch cream. I would appreciate it if someone had some answers and some solutions to cure this.

I'm having a similar issue: It first started out as a spider bite looking thing on my side. Then it went to my leg and now it's on my penis. Now its all over my hands, my butt my stomach too! I keep getting these clear bumps that release watery fluid from them. Also im getting big red bumps that hurt even when touched and itch like crazy. I had a b12 shot and the first one i got i didnt get this but after the second one this happend but i also had intercourse so im hoping its not a std. It seems like its only getting worst because it went from bumps to my skin is peeling after masterbating (masturbating) so I quit masterbating (masturbating). It's scary because now my whole head of my penis looks raw. I domt have any irregular discharge. I did some reaserch and i thought it may be a yeast infection. I don't know but my whole body itches like crazy and the bumps are spreading. I have a docters appointment set up but i was wondering if i could get some sort of answer now. May you please help me out I'm really worried. If you have a answer may you please write back to Adam! Thank you

If you guys are really Itchy for whatever of your many reasons.

Use White Vinegar, dab it on with cotton wool or wet a tissue with the white vinegar.  Will sort out your itch, also fixes athletes foot.

Might smell a bit, buit when your asleep and wake up tearing your skin off, it works a treat. Cheers

Also I have been to doctors, got blood tests, had a series of other tests and no good.  They end up just prescribing Prednisolone as a steroid, sure it sorts it out, but few days after you stop taking them they come back.

Have changed Diet and lived elsewhere for a few weeks and stopping medication, but they come back.  Mine are like Mosquito bites, maybe 4 on my bum, a few on my legs, few in my pubes, not many but there about 7 mm diameter and do not wish to have them anymore.. Advice would be great

Look I've got the exact sane thing I thought it was a rash new bed sheets n such but no washing them different, it has been driving me crazy like others its always worsenat night and its so bad I cant sleep and I feel awful keepingyhgorlfriend up like. Plus the red spots on my penis arnt the most attractive things in the world. I know it sounds stupid but I think its particialy a mental thing cps I find if ibjust try forget about it and dnt scratch it does help and thelumps, what ever, go down itch less. But then I also find that when you get hot and sweety like in a hot bed or after somethin vigorous its always alot worse. I do find that just a moistureisding cream that's keept nice and cold does tend to sooth it for a while mind same as anti histemineshistemines Not a permanent fix though

Hello all,

Im creating this post, not to (as so many of you pointlessly have) say "Oh! I have the same problem!" but to constructively help you guys out as you seem to be going around in circles since 2008. *sigh* If you suffering as I have been for the last 2 weeks, youre REALLY going to want to read this. This post is not for my benifit, but for the people who may not be able to or want to see a doctor.

Right. Listen. First off, here's the bad news (good news later). It's SCABIES. Yea it sounds disgusting, but don't be ignorant and deny something that's staring you in the face just because you don't like the sound of it. I read this post 5 days ago and saw a lot of people had the exact same problem as me. Unlike most of you, today I actually got off my *** and did something about it. I went to see a dermatologist. Not a normal GP, but an ACTUAL dermatologist who specializes in skin conditions.

I too, have red, EXTREMELY itchy spots on my buttocks, thighs, arms and 3-4 big spots on my penis and scrotum. The area that was effected the most was my inner thighs. Now the good news, its EASILY treatable. You probably only have about 10-15 mites on you at the minute and the are TINY. They're microscopic so don't worry about seeing them crawling on you. The tell-tale signs in men that they have scabies is the spot on your penis. No normal rash spreads to the penis. It needs to be carried there by something like crabs or in my instance scabies. I am truly sorry ladies, I can only go by what I was told but another tell tale sign is tiny spots in between the webbing on your fingers and toes.

Now here's what the doctor prescribed. I was told in the chemist that its all over the counter stuff so if your unable to afford to see a doctor, just jot this list down.

1. 1 x Lyclear 5% w/w Dermal Cream
2. 1 x Zirtek 10mg tabs
3. 1 x Ucerax 25mg tabs

The cream is to be applied from neck to toe, (the whole tube) and repeated a week later to rid the scabies that may have hatched since the last application. (It also burns quite a bit when first applied.)
The Zirtek and Ucerax are antihistamines. (fancy name for itching pills) Zirtek is for during the DAY, and the Ucerax is for during the NIGHT as it will make you quite drowsy and help you sleep. Don't mix them up as you'll be sleeping all through the day if you do?!

I truly hope you all get well soon and that my advice helps. Another thing to note is DO NOT be embarrassed that you've been infected with this. It has nothing to do with Hygiene. I myself am a EXTREMELY hygienic 23 year old Irish male, and I haven't a clue how I contracted scabies as I haven't had sex in over 3months. The Dermatologist i met said it could have even been a prolonged handshake with someone. But still, I'm clueless. Now take care, let me know if you have any questions and let me know if the treatment worked!

Yours Itchingly

I just went to the doctor today for a stomach virus that i have had for over a week and a half.  While i was there, i had her check out my butt.  I called her about a week ago about these welts or bumps that have come and gone 3 times in the past 3 months.  I told her i got a new mattress and comforter.  I said i didn't know if they were bed bugs but i looked at my sheets and mattress with a flashlight and didn't see anything.  She said, come in when you get it again and i will look at it and take a biopsy.  So, i figured while i was there i mize well have her look at my scars from these bumps.  I had been getting about 7 of them, average, on my butt in the same area.  They didn't have any puss or oozing.  The just seemed to appear and as soon as they did they got really itchy.  Then they turned bright red like a pimple but no head or puss or oozing.  She also prescribed
me Bactroban 2% CREA to apply twice daily when they return.  She said it was from a hair folicle.  I questioned this and said, why the same area and why does it keep coming back.  I first told her, i hate to say this but i think it is scabies mites from what i have been reading.  Lots of people seem to have the same symptom and it keeps coming back.  She said it definately wasn't scabies, it was from a hair follicle.  We are all mammals and have hair everywhere.  I didn't get much more info out of her because she was in a hurry and fit me in.  Other than that, if that doesn't work she said she would send me to a dermatologist to take a culture.  Her only other idea of what this was was an allergic reaction.  She said antihistimes might work.  I told her why don't you think it is an allergic reaction, i didn't treat it with antihistimes or anything but put hydrogen peroxide on it.  She said she was convinced it was from a hair follicle.  So, when i get this again, i will post and let you know how this works.  I hope this has helped some of you with the same condition.  I know a lot of you seem to get it on your hands and get puss or oozing.  That is something else.  For those of you that get this in your genital area, thighs or butt, i think this might be helpful to you.  Let me know if anyone tries this, what the results were and if this came back again.

Most of you seem to complain about itching.  Assuming you found this website by googling, why not google keywords or a question like What products can i buy to cure or help severe itching?  I have heard that apple cider vinegar works, maybe calimine lotion, anti-itch creams available over the counter like benedryl, antihistimines, etc.  You are all taking time to post your story asking for help with itching, why not take the time to google and find out what works?  When you do, please post it for everyone to see.

Btw, i just wanted to say, after thinking about this, i think stress and anxiety are a contributing  factor in this reaction of bumps or welts that get itchy and come back.  Does anyone notice that it comes back when you are stressed or anxietied out?  Funny, my x-roommate got the same thing the week after me in the same area, the butt, and she was an emotional mess!

Ive had the same issue for a few weeks and went to the doctor yesterday. He told me it was scabies and I was prescribed prometherine cream. The dermatologist told me that if the cream doesn't work it doesn't mean that it isn't scabies. Sometimes the scabies won't be affected by the medicine and other medicine needs to be prescribed. My best bet is that you have scabies as well... Go to a dermatologist and mention scabies and they'll do a skin scraping and prescribe you with cream.

WTF!!!!! SERIOUSLY????  ALL SAME SYMPTOMS AND NOBODY HAS AN IDEA WHAT TO DO TO GET RID OF THIS???  At 1st I had chiggers on my feet and toes from going camping but a month later the familiar chigger bite patterns have changed into exactly what everyone else is discribing... I was using "Sulfur Acne Cream" and Sulfur soap bar to rid myself of the chiggers but started using it all over (penis, sack, thighs, feet, ect..) and it helped it go away. Took forever for the scabs to heal and NOW ITS BACK!!! The doctors don't seem to beable to correctly diagnose it, so what now... HHEEEELLLLLPPP!!!

I had the bump on the head of my penis too, I had the tiny itchy poppable bumps inbetween my fingers and other bumps on my arms and ***. I recently got checked for an std and was told I have Chlamydia so that explains the bump on my ****, however, I was told that he other bumps had nothing to due with the chlamydia, but I feel like my body was having an allergic reaction to the std trying to invade my body; maybe its a new strain of chlamydia. I took 1000mg of Azithromycin and that should take care of me. I hope it gets rid of the itchy finger bumps too, because if not, Im not sure what Ill do.

It sounds to me like a lot people in this thread had the same symptoms I had. I had a severe itching on the inside of my thighs, then my pubic area at my waistline, then my butt. Then the bumps appeared...
I went to a clinic and I explained that a few of my friends had the same thing and that some were sexual partners. He said it was scabies right away. But he prescribed me Permathrin 1% and that's where he went wrong...
2 bottles of Permathrin 1% and 6 months later, the bumps were still there. No new ones, the same ones that were there from the get go. I waited so long because I was embarrassed and the behavior of the bumps were irregular. Sometimes they would flatten and I thought they were going away and then the next week they'd rise up again and itch like hell. My friend's symptoms had all cleared up, but mine hadn't. So I went to my dermatologist and I explained EVERYTHING to him. He thought it was a bacteria infection just by looking at it and before hearing me out. So really make your doctor listen to you. He did a skin scraping on one of the bumps on my pubic area. Turns out it was scabies. He even showed it to me under his microscope. However, what I had and what most of these posts sound like are not regular scabies. My doctor told me I had NODULAR scabies. Meaning they were now under the skin and that's why the topical treatments I was using weren't very effective and he told me that the other doctor should have prescribed me Permathrin 5% and I might not have been suffering for so long. He also prescribed me pills to take. I forgot the name of the pill. He told me that it was pretty much the same pill they give to dogs to rid them of scabies. They were four small pills and I was told to take them all at once. So when you go to your doctor/dermatologist, ask about this.
I did the treatment 2 months ago and the bumps have gone away drastically. All the ones on my butt, penis, pubic area have disappeared completely. The ones on the insides of my thighs have started to clear up and are rarely itchy. They are about 1/4 of the size of what they were. I went in for a follow up and showed him that the ones on my thighs were still there. He told me that I shouldn't worry because we nuked the scabies with the treatment he gave me. He told me that it is very common for people recovering from scabies that the bumps can stay for up to 4 months and to be patient. I told him they still itch a bit occasionally and he said my immune system is so out of wack trying to fight this off for so long and that a topical antihistamine cream would help. He also told me to take an antihistamine pill everyday for a month.  Its been three weeks since that follow up and the pills and cream seem to be helping. One or two bumps still get irritated a bit but its not nearly as severe as when it first started. He told me to come back in a month if I'm not completely cleared up. I have one more week til then so I'll follow up here what he has to say if the bumps aren't 100% gone by then.
Good luck everyone. And remember its not going to fix itself. You need to see a dermatologist and get treated. Don't let embarrassment get in the way of your health! I went crazy for 6 months and it could have been a lot less time suffering if I had just went to a proper dermatologist to begin with. Get rid of your scabies and get on with your lives.

I came looking on the internet today to find a solution to my itchy problem, and what I have read hear and the symptom described are just uncanny.  We all have the same thing.  It started as on bump on the side of my penis.  Now it is on my legs and chest, very minute bumps but so itchy that I have been getting no sleep.  I have to agree that it seems to be heat and moisture activated, as I think it started from wearing my long johns under my clothes to stay warmer in the winter.  I had a minor case last winter too from wearing the long johns.  I too am getting the blisters between the fingers, but nothing on my feet as I spray my shoes every day with Tinactin due to having a history with athletes foot.  The blistering between the fingers looks exactly like athletes foot.  Maybe this just some new resistant strain of fungi.  I used lotrimin cream on just the fronts of my thighs the other day and the itching pretty much went away in that area where I applied it.  Nobody seems to be getting any help from any of the doctors that they have went to, which seems to be my experience with doctors in my 42 years.  Someone mentioned tee tree oil working to get rid of it, which makes more sense that this is some kind of faster spreading fungus.  Someone mentioned drinking and smoking exacerbating the problem, which make sense because they lower the immunes systems function.  The body usually does a pretty good job of fighting these kinds of things off.  Some of these symptoms also sound like herpes simples 1, which most of us have whether we know it or not, whether or not the blood test came out neg. or pos.  If you are in the middle of an out break, go in and get tested.  Don't wait until the outbreak is over and then go get tested, or you may get a false negative.  It will not help you to bury your head in the sand and ignore the problem and spread it to others.  Most people have herpes 1 in their body somewhere, it's almost unavoidable these days.  It will be when your immune system is compromised that you will get some symptoms, such as being sick with the flu, or when we go on an alcoholic binge lol.  Let me know if anyone finds a solution to this problem.  The itching is driving me crazy too!

Maybe chemtrails haha. But seriously all jokes aside. Ive tried lotion. Vaseline. Antihistimines. Body wash. Neosporin. Cortizone cream. Its insane.

ATTENTION!!!! READ THIS IF YOU WANT ANSWERES!!!! I have the same symptoms as everyone posting on this, from the red bumps to the itching like crazy, to the few red bumps on the penis. It starts on your thighs and butt and spreads quickly it seems. I went to  the first doctor and he said it was a ingrown hair infection (which I didn't believe) and he game me steroid cream... Didn't help. Next doctor took scabies scrapings and said it was negitive and gave me better steroid creams... Didn't help. Then I got tested and the doctor said it wasn't an std and to go back to the dermatologist. I went back and told her instead of steroid cream I want the scabies cream. She then re-scrapped and it was scabies.SCABIES SCABIES SCABIES!!!!!!! Go to a doctor or back to the doctor and tell them to scrape for scabies because you know they are there. If they say it's not that tell them to scarpe again because that's exactly what it is. Don't wait 2 or 3 more months longer in HELL do the scabies can get worse before they find it. If you are tired of being miserable then get off your itchy *** (see how I said that) for real!!! Doctor visit is 80 bucks and meds are 20 and 100 dollars is cheap if your going through what I was going through. Wash all your clothes and bedding and buy the can of live spray for the furniture and your bed. And get permethrin 5% and start living your life again!!!!!
Your Welcome

I am experiencing all the same symptoms.

Some background on how mine manifested and how it has reacted to several treatments.

Mine initially began with one small however very itchy welt on my armpit. It was not until a few weeks later that I began to develop incredibly painless itchy red bumps on my elbows, forearms, inner and outer thighs, butt cheeks, penis and testicles. My genitals alone have approximately 25 bumps and it seems to look the worst there. When I began to breakout with this I was deployed on a submarine, no contact with pets, pollen, sex or just about every allergen you can think of. Based on my isolation I am ruling out that its an allergic reaction. I shared a rack with one other crew member that had a skin problem as well but his broke out in large clusters and secreted pus where as mine are small red itchy bumps described by many of you. The itchiness was agonizing especially being on a submarine with no where to really distract yourself from it. I spend days awake until I was so exhausted I fell asleep and when I pulled in port I often combined benadryl with alchohol just to knock myself out. I was prescribed doxycillin by my doctor on board which seemed to have no impact. Next we tried calamine lotion, hydrocortizone and anti hystamines. I noticed a small improvement with the antihystamines but not enough to be convinced. Other cortizone lotions offer itch relief but little else and can have negative effects if used frequently. Finally I got my hands on some permethrine and gave that a go. Just as many of you I was told it was not scabies as I did not have any burrows or match any textbook pictures of what scabies looks like. I insisted that I had it and doctors dismissed it. My friend had 5% permethrin cream and I took what he had and applied it once for about eight hours. The itching intensified immensely for about two days but remember that you are basically rubbing an insecticide on your skin. After those two days a lot of the itching stopped but still persists mildly at night. The bumps have just about disappeared on my genitals and arms.

I will treat myself once more with the permethrin and further access. One additional thing is that your body may not display typical symptoms and the reason antihistamines are mildly effective is because your body reacts to by products produced by the scabies i.e. droppings ect. This stuff can remain on your skin for an extended period and even when treatments are successful can prolong the symptoms.

Clean everything, apply the permethrin and don't be afraid to be assertive with doctors.

I am prepared for anything after a couple nights of debating suicide and crying my eyes out and thinking about people who have it bad i have bullet proofed my mind i did not come here to give you answers to be honest half of us here will end up with herpes.. im to tell you to stay strong no matter what never give up cuzz there is always some1 out there who has it worse.. For example a little girl down the street 8 years old died of cancer im sitting here planning how i will take my life when a little girl is fighting for hers? Sorry if i came off a little crazy Again stay strong Live long.. Bye :)

Two out of my four boys are having the same symptoms mentioned here. They are 10 and 13 so an std isn't the cause. They have been suffering with this for several months now. They have been prescribed steroids and antibiotics and found little relief. The doctor believed them to be some type of bites, but what bug attacks the groin and bottom areas? I'm at a loss and my boys are miserable. Please help....

Ahhhh!!! Okay everyone, I just read everyone's comments and it's identical... Thighs, buttocks, inside the fingers.. The one in the side of the penis, everything!!! And Yes I'm 20 years old and did a bunch of research on this and quite a few have it but NO ONE has figured out what it is or how to completely cure it... My uncle is a Naturopathic doctor and I'm gonna see if maybe he knows how to fix it..... If anythings works I'll let you know

I also have the same symptoms it is very reassuring being told by my doctor that they have no idea what it could be. It started a few months ago with some slight itching here and there localized to my penis and scrotum area but have recently gone into my inner thighs I itch them and they bleed and the process repeats I think it has something to do with the chemicals I use at work and going to the restroom without pre washing my hands NEED HELP WONT GO AWAY.......UGLY AND ANNOYING >.<

If you have scabies and you want to go the all natural route; use Clove Essential Oil.  It has been scientifically proven that it kills the scabies mite. The mites do not become immune to it because it is a natural remedy.  It does not kill the egg, however.  Therefore, you will need to apply the Clove Essential Oil daily for two weeks, clean clothes every day, clean towel every shower, change sheets at the minimum - every 3 days, vacuum and clean your house like the president is coming.
Make sure you mix the Clove Essential Oil with a carrier oil (olive, safflower, sweet almond, jojoba, etc) as essential oils are very strong and should not be put directly on the skin.  Mix the essential oil in a 3:1 ratio.  For example: 3 ounces oil & 1 ounce essential oil  (1 ounce is 3 tablespoons).  You will not have to wash this off and it doesn't smell too bad, either. The carrier oil will actually help your skin to heal, as well.
My daughter contracted scabies from school and by the time anyone could tell us what it was, her hands were monsterous looking from all of the bites and secondary infections from the scratching.  I soaked her hands in a mix of very warm water, epsom salt and Clove essential oil twice a day. Her hands were almost back to normal in a week.  I continued to soak her hands for a second week.   My other daughter and I rubbed ourselves with the Clove EO Blend (and we all do so now as a precaution) every 3 days and have had no problems.  
I hope this helps!  
FYI - you have to buy Essential Oil (real/natural)- not fragrance oil(synthetic chemical)!

Alright I just researched about it, I know I'm a year off. But I'm just helping who ever else that comes across this forum, but it's scabies.!

Just google the treatment. You will need to buy a cream from Walgreens or Walmart and take some benadryl. Take the Benadryl at night. And apply the cream at night.
I would take loratadine in the mornings!
