What do itchy bumps all over the body indicate?

I am a female. I have been experiencing mosquito bite like bumps all over my body in random places for a few days now. Tonight I noticed some of the bumps on my anus. They are a little itchy but not painful. I was diagnosed with genital herpes 2 years ago and have not had an outbreak since my initial outbreak. This does not feel like an outbreak.

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The anal lesions do sound like a herpetic infection for which I recommend oral and topical antiviral medications. The other lesions on your body could be due to many reasons but the most common being: insect bites and allergy. For the itching, you could take an anti- histaminic called Tab Bepozic 10 mg twice a day sos. For the red bumps you could apply Fucibet cream twice a day for 3-4 days. Switch to a month of hypoallergic soap called Moisturex syndet. I suggest get yourself revised thoroughly by the dermatologist for further guidance.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

over the past few weeks, I have had three different small areas that were itchy, a small bump was also present and then when scratched a couple of times, the skin peeled off and it was raw. It did not bleed, just the liquid was present to help heel the open section of skin

My daughters skin started to itch a couple of weeks ago all over her body. When she scratches she gets bumps on her skin and now she has purple petechia. I might add that 2 months ago she got her nipples pierced and one of her nipples is sore, swollen and looks infected. Two days ago she started to have a sore throat and now it hurts to swallow and her neck lymph nodes are swollen. Are these symptoms connected and does she need antibiotics?

I have been getting small itchy rash/bumps all over my body except my face. I know its not bugs or fleas or anything as there are no blood spots on my sheets. I have other symptoms that have been going on in the last 2+ years. The itchy bumps last few months.
