Bumps on inner thighs, spreading further, increased itchiness, get bruises on scratching and water filled spots. Remedy?

3 months ago I started to get these bumps on my inner thighs, i didn t pay attention to them but then I started to get more. I didn t notice that I would scratch myself there but the longer I had it the more itchy the area got. The longer time past the more it spread and I started to become insanely itchy on my arms, back, legs, stomach , and even my breast . I started noticing little red dots on my arms from where I scratched, big bruise like spots on my legs and on my hands I have these callous like spots and some are filled with (what it looks like) water. I have no idea what to do and the itching gets worse at night.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Worsening of itch at night time and the sites of involvement point towards scabies.
This is an contagious disease. You may spread it to the people staying under the same roof. It spreads by direct contact like hand shaking and through clothes, linens also.
Single application of a scabicidal cream/lotion will cure the disease.
Important thing to note here is to treat all the members staying with you, and second thing is to keep in mind that its itch may persist for longer duration despite completing the treatment.
Take a dermatology opinion.
