Thanks for posting question on HCM,
You are probably suffering from condition called Scabies ,it is a contagious disease , initially it present as dry itch but if not treated it secondary bacterial infection develop (Folliculitis and impetigo) esp papules seen in genitals and webs of finger ,toes. Apply permethrin 5 (lotrix) cream from neck to toe after taking bath.sleep at night and wash your body after 12 hours.change your dress and bed clothes and send your used one for laundry.You can repeat the same treatment after 1 week.

Hope this will alleviate your anxiety
