Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in.

The condition you are describing can be scabies ,urticaria ,dermatitis herpetiformis papular urticaria etc.


Also I would like to know-
Since when you have this?

Do you have fungal infection anywhere else on the body?

Is itching more in night time or day time?
Do you have lesions on finger webs/wrist/abdomen/genital area?
Any family member affected with similar condition?
Do the lesions stay like that or go away after some time?


Can you upload photos of the affected area?
Photos can help a lot to predict the condition.

Wherever you have a visible lesion on the skin you can take a close up photograph of it and UPLOAD it in UPLOAD YOUR reports section.

Answer the questions and we can continue the discussion here.
