Itchy red bumps on torso, legs. What is this rash?

My father, an old school logger whom rarely sees a physician, has a severe case of itchy red bumps all over his torso and legs which he scratches raw, making them appear as sores. His girlfriend gave him some of her old cream from a stress related rash , where I advised him to stop using this and see a doctor. He is impossible. It does not seem to be contagious - but rather dibiliating. I know when I was pregnant I got cholestasis ... and know my fathers liver is not one of great construction ... I have found cinnamon and honey to be a great treatment for many things .. what do you suppose this rash is? What would be the best way to treat such a thing.

hi. seems he has fungal infection. Ask him to apply antifungal cream like clotrimazole cream, ketoconazole cream, sertaconazole cream or luliconazole cream twice daily for 4 weeks

Oral antifungal like fluconazole once weekly for 4-6 weeks
oral antihistamine once daily to help him with his itching
