Excessively itchy legs, constant breakout of pus-filled whiteheads that scar. Remedy?

My legs get incredibly itchy, like the itch is under the skin... they also have been constantly breaking out in these tiny, pus-filled whiteheads that scar ... When I moved away for a couple months, it all went away, but then when I came back to my apartment, it started up the same way... My poor legs are scarred and leathery and this is making me crazy! Please help...

I would be pleased to answer your question .

There could be a source of bites on your legs which many range from termites to fleas to bed bugs. The other cause for such a recurrent pus filled breakout which leaves behind scarring might be recurrent folliculitis .

You will need to take an oral antibiotic for the same and topical applications of a steroid and antibiotic combination would be more helpful .

Please do show the Dermatologist to confirm the above diagnosis

Thanks and Take care
