Hi XXXXXXX,
With the history and the appearance in the photograph it seems you have an intense inflammatory condition which can be due to scabies or a dermatitis.
It would be worth while to consult a Dermatologist.
Optionally you can try this treament-
Apply Cream Permite all over the body except on face and wash after hours. Also boil your recently used cloth and linen, if other family members also having same problem then follow same for them also.
From next day apply Cream Betnovate twice a day for 7days.
I hope the advise would be helpful for you.

Hi Dr XXXXXXX

Thanks for your reply. I just wanted to add the information that this is a recurring problem that crops up once in 3-4 months and is located always only between the toes and nowhere else on the body.
Do you still recommend the same treatment?
Thanks,
XXXXXXX

Hi Mr XXXXXXX
Welcome back to healthcare Magic!
Yes both the possibilities I have mentioned have the trait of recurrence.
I am more sure that the treatment I have advised you would be helpful.
Meanwhile also change the soap, washing powder, spray/cream etc. if you have recently started using something.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!

My 3 year old son has scabies all over, I have them also just not as much. My twin sons don`t show any sighn of scabies yet, but we all applyed the cream and I washed everything in the house. I also had the carpets cleaned. Anyway, I `m itching alot more & I`m sick to my stomach. I`m a very, very clean person! I was wondering because i cleaned everything the morning after the medicine did it work? I also have a small cockapoo dog, does she have it? (I did`t wash her) We are supposed to ues the cream on the 3rd and 4th night after the 1st night we applyed the cream. Should I wash everything in the whole house those days too? I don`t have time for all this and I can`t take poff anymore work to stay home and clean all day. What can I do and will they go away?

I have some very small bumps on my body in a few places. A couple under my upper arm, one or two on my hands, a few on my penis and one or two on my inner thigh... They are typically not even visible until I itch them a little bit, then they become raised and slightly red. My corpsman (I m in the navy) thinks that maybe it is scabies.
