General & Family Physician 's  Response
You seem to be suffering from scabies infection.
Scabies is an infectious skin condition caused by a tiny mite which burrows into the skin and causes intense itching.
It is spread mainly through direct skin contact with an infected person and occasionally by contaminated bedding, towels and clothes.

Consult your doctor for the confirmation of diagnosis and prescription.

There are several treatment options available for the treatment of scabies.
The current treatment of choice is a 5% preparation of permethrin or a 25% preparation of benzyl benzoate (Ascabiol )

Treat all your households at one go.
Wash all your linen in hot water.
Repeat the application in 7 days time.
Take some anti allergic like BENADRYL OR CETRIZINE in night for 5 to 7 days.
