Thanks for writing in.

You are most commonly suffering from scabies.
It is an infection by ectoparasitic organism.
Topical application of permethrin can be helpful .
Also you can use Pthrin soap.
Oral antiscabetic drugs also have to be taken.

Consult your dermatologist for oral antiscabetic tablets.

Hope this helps.
