Have itchy bumps on body. Got new puppy that is itching. What is it?

Me and my fiance got a new puppy recently. She itches a lot so we took her to the vet. They did a test on her for scabies and it came back negative. They gave her a flea pill and all her fleas died and fell off her. She's still itching and now me and my fiance are itching as well. We keep having small little bumps appear on us. They started on our legs. I have little bumps all on my stomach and its started to spread to my chest. Now I'm getting the bumps on my wrists. What could this be??

Hi Carolyn
Thanks for your query

From your clinical picture, it looks like both you and your fiance are having scabies.
Scabies is a mite infestation presenting with itching papular lesions all over the body , mainly over abdomen,finger web spaces, thigh and genitilia. It usually causes more itching at night .
It is a contagious condition, so proper treatment of the patient and the contacts has to be done
You need to apply 5 percent permethrin cream all over your body.
Single application of this cream all over the body below the neck is to be done,,,
Apply it at night, leave it overnight, take bath the next morning..
Use crotamiton cream from the next day twice a day over the affected areas..
Take antihistamines like levocetrizine for itching
You have to take care also to disinfect all your clothes and beddings by washing them in warm water and drying them in sun..

And also find out, if anybody else from your family has similar lesions or itching, then they should also be treated...

Wishing you speedy recovery
