Brief Answer:
Could be scabies

Detailed Answer:
Hi. Thank you

This could be scabies. Scabies presents with itchy bumps at various body sites e.g finger webs, abdomen, upper thighs, erms, chest and buttocks etc. Itching in scabies is especially worse at night.
I would suggest you to take a tablet of ivermectol 12mg, single dose, today.
In addition you may also take a tablet of cetrizine 10mg once daily in evening for 10 days.
Topically you may use momate - f cream, twice daily.
Are there other affected family members or close contacts?

My son had a small red itchy bump at the edge of his bottom a few days ago. We thought it was a bug bite. He scratched it and it got bigger and scabbed over. Now it is itching more, has a red area around it, and he has a few more similar bumps near it (also itchy). No other bumps on his body. Any ideas?

My 4 year old son was stung on the top of his ear this afternoon. That area has turned purple. Is this normal? Or a sign that he might be allergic? I don't know if I should take him to the doctor or just ice it. What do you recommend?
