Itchy bumps on scalp, back of neck, fingers swell, have hives along sides, on legs. What should i do?

I first noticed itchy bumps on my scalp and the back of my neck , the next morning one of my fingers began to swell. By that night both hands were swollen, really limiting my movment. That was 2 days ago. The swelling in my fingers have faded for the most part, but now my ankles are slightly swollen and i have hives along my sides, on my legs and still on the back of my neck.

Hi and thanks for your query,
The clinical syndrome you present brings out something certainly infectious, could be viral, bacterial or fungal. It would be interesting to know if any body around you is presenting with the same symptoms.
It suggest you first avoid getting in contact with children or people in your home, wash and iron all your dresses and linings, and it would be interesting getting the opinion of your family physician for treatment.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
