Coin shaped scars all over arms, itchy, swollen ears, lump over cartilage. What is it?

I have been seeing a dermatologist for a few months now, and she's concluded that I have nummular eczema after 3 biopsies. I have coin shaped scars all over my arms--only my arms, I don't get them anywhere else. And now my ears are extremely itchy and swollen, and even a little lumpy all over the upper cartilage and it's extremely uncomfortable. I have a history of allergies but now I think it's strange my family members who don't have allergies are getting the same coins on their arms like I have.

Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response
your history of asllergies suggest that your allergy has involved the skin because eczema is also allergic
if you want to get rid of these go for allergy tests and immunotherapy to cure both systems respiratory and skin
this time you might have mixed scabies which also look lke allergies and it spreads from one person to other in family
you can treat it locally
by applying crotorex hc ointment bd
'emscab lotion at night whole body for 10 days
these can also beapplied to other people of your family having this
can take sos antiallergic for itch
every time you change clthes boil them in warm water and then use again
you have also to change bedsheets pillow covers etc evryday and use again by boiling in water
it takes 3 wk for scabies to go awaywith medication
