Itching on the neck, back, arms and legs. Suffered lice infestation. Cure?

Hello. We have had a fun case of lice in our home, and it s under control at this point. However, I now seem to be itchy everywhere. It s not really on my scalp , so I m thinking maybe it s unrelated. Mostly on my chest, neck and back, upper arms and some on my legs. There are no raised bumps per se, but sometimes after scratching , I see a red dot.

Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would suggest that you should take an antihistamine like Fexofenadine 120 mg once a day.

You can also apply lotion containing calamine and diphenhydramine.

Avoid scratching as it can harm your skin.

If the problem persists, get yourself clinically examined by a Dermatologist.

I hope this is helpful to you.
