Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. If the appearance of these spots was sudden and your husband and mother also have developed the same spots on their skin, all of a sudden; then this could very well be body lice most probably called scabies or itch mite.

Do you have any itching which is more at any particular time of the day? Like more at night or more during the day? Do you see anything coming out from the spots during a shower, especially with the use of hot water over your body?

All the points mentioned in your description and query match itch mite/scabies other than the presence of itching, which you have either forgotten to mention or do not experience. Please write back to me about this.

As for the treatment, I would request you to either visit a dermatologist for a prescription and confirmation of diagnosis or get your hands on:

+5% permethrin cream
+25% benzyl benzoate lotion

Please speak to your doctor about the same or speak to a pharmacist for the requires topical applicants to further help and manage your case. Please do not panic, and feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help.

Best wishes.
