Question: Hi,

So early feburary of this year I had an itch one side of my wrist that was accompanied by a cluster of tiny bumps. I didn't think much of it at first until it began to spread. The "rash" is now everywhere except my neck, face, feet& palms. The rash doesn't seem to follow any kind of pattern. It's just VERY itchy. I will attach a link to view a photo.

Brief Answer:
Scabies

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
I can see there are multiples small bumps on your wrist.
Probably you have developed Scabies.

It is an infection caused itch mite.
I treat such cases with a single application of 5 % Permethrin cream.
It is highly effective and safe.

You can try this.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Thank you.
