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

I have gone through your complaints and according to your history it could be scabies which is a mite infection. I would recommend you to apply Permethrin 5 percent lotion on the body.

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