Brief Answer: he could be having scabies Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing to us. From the description provided and image attached, it seems your husband is probably having scabies. Personally in my clinical practice I treat such cases by prescribing below mentioned medicines Tablet Ivermectin 12 mg single stat dose Apply 5 percent permethrin overnight all over the body neck downwards and wash it off next morning. from next day onwards apply steroid cream twice in a day over itchy bumps for a week or two. Take tablet cetrizine to alleviate the itch. Hope this would help your husband too. Should there be any further query or doubt, please write back.
