Have itchy red bumps on hands, fingers, feet, breasts and thighs. Taking Guanfacine. Related?

i have itchy little red solid bumps on my hands, between fingers, on the tops of my feet , on my breasts, and upper thighs , and a little bit on my lower legs. Then my nipples also itch but there is no bumps on them only around them. I dont know if its related but i have had the symptoms as long as i ve been taking a new medication , guanfacine . I also have a really bad cough but this may be unrelated as well.

From the description it seems you might be having a mite infestation known as scabies. It is characterised by itchy red rashes over the typical sites mentioned by you. Lesions usually itch at night and other family members might behaving similar history of itch.
To treat scabies single overnight local application of permethrin cream 5 percent whole body below neck is required

Hope that answers your query.
