Suggest treatment for itchy bumps on the body

For the past 6 weeks I have had little intensely itchy bumps the once touched ooze yellow and weep constantly and form crust. They grow into different size open sores that don t heal and new ones pop up every day. They started on my arms and legs but are everywhere and have really been spreading over my back ,scalp, forehead and now face. The constant tingling and itching is relentless and driving me crazy.

Hello,

It may be allergic reaction or scabies or secondary to the seborrheic dermatitis. Avoid chemical irritants or allergic food or deodorants that damage the skin. Use tablet Levocetrizine for five days. Use tablet Zinc once a day for one week. Get it done completed blood picture, absolute euosinophil count. If symptoms not improved please consult with your physician / dermatologist she will examine and treat you accordingly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
