Red, itchy spots on tip and shaft of penis spreading from belly button to legs. Concerning?

I recently obtained a scab on my penis that was not made due to sexual encounters but from friction by dry humping with clothes on. It was just a scab at first and i didn't think anything of it. Then prom came around and i checked it out afterwards in a bathroom and noticed red spots on my tip and shaft. A few days after prom me and my significant other were being bad and i recieved oral. the scab was broken off before hand. After it i noticed the spots were glowing red. I told her we should not do anything sexual till it all goes away but it has not and it has been 4 days since. To add to it my family obtained a new bed and put it into my "game room" and i slept on it during the days before prom, and after prom for four days and with each day more and more spots appeared and one morning i had "bites" or red itchy marks from my belly button down and down my legs. I am very concerned and my mom is giving me different lotions and creams to put on it but i do not feel like it is working as well as it should. What do you think the problem could be?

Welcome to healthcare magic
I am thinking of possibilities of Scabies and insect bite reaction most probably bed bugs.
Scabies is due to an itch mite which lives in the skin. It is contagious. Is there any itching in your family members?
Bed bugs usually crawl out of crevices to bite at night. Watch out for them.
Permethrin 5 % cream is a good treatment for scabies. 30 g tube should be applied all over body from neck downwards after a scrub bath at night, wash off the next day morning during bath. You can get it prescribed by your doctor.
Hope this helped
Take care
