I have an intensely itchy red rash on my back

I have an intensely itchy red rash on my back of hands, front and side of both thighs, top of feet and ankles. My ankles, calves and thighs are extremely swollen and skin is very tight and uncomfortable. I have been scratching at it like I am trying to get to an itch that is a few layers of skin down. I believe it has now become infected. What could it be and what's kind of antibiotics can treat it? Please help

I have a client that has a very itchy, red raised rash all over his back Which has lasted for 3 weeks. It gets better and then worse. Recently his son noticed a very itchy red area on the inside of son s palm and wrist. I am an agency nurse just getting involved in supervising Dad s care. Dad is 80, refusing bodily cases more often than not. My cna s are worried about scabies. I am scheduled to see him tomorrow. Have not seen him for a week. Your thoughts please...
