Question
History of seizures. Otherwise, fit and very healthy. Recently I spent a day extremely fatigued, followed by flushing of the skin. My energy regained, I broke out with what behaved like little bug bites on my arms torso and upper chest.... Three days later, extreme itching and the little red bumps have not abated. They are worse at night. They seem to be worse on the warmest parts of my body. I.E. Folds of skin, beneath my arms on my torso....

Hello
Thanks for the query.
Probably you are suffering from urticaria.
It is an allergic condition.
I would like to know whether you still have lesions or they just come and disappear.
I can advice you treatment.
However I would like to see a photograph of the lesion.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and I will be able to help you better.
Please upload a photograph.
waiting for your response.
Thank you

Hi, Thanks for your reply. Would this be an allergic reaction to environmental or ingested allergens? Or could it be both? When you suggest allergens, we are not talking about parisites, correct? I am uploading a pic. Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you.

Brief Answer:
Looking like scabies

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the photograph.
It is not urticaria, else it would have disappeared by now.
Actually it is looking like scabies.
Scabies mainly itches at night and is common in warmer parts of body.
Please apply permethrin 5 % lotion and take an anti histamine tablet like cetrizine.
This should give you relief.
Thank you
