Have itchy white bumps around wrist after exercising. Have itchiness in legs and arms. Solution?

Hi I get white, itchy bumps on my skin around the wrist and on the upper arms particularly while or just after exercising however there are times, mostly when in bed, that I get itchy all over my legs, buttocks , belly, back and arms. I have had them for a while and tried many different treatments to no avail. The best so far was a treatment for scabies but it was t a permanent fix and the itch came back after about a week both times that I tried. (I did a full treatment cycle washing sheets clothes etc at the start and end using a full body lotion daily for a week) any Ideas would be welcome.

I think you are having prurigo. Take steroids in tappering dose, antihistaminics and application of mid potency steroid for 3 to 4 months. Avoid soap bath. Sun exposure may cause prurigo. Keep away from insects. Atopy,malabsorption, internal diseases, malignancy may be related, so those diseasesshould be ruled out, psychological factors like depression, anxiety, mood deviation may also preciptate prurigo. Pschotherapy and anti psychotic drugs may benefit. ...ok
