    Default Does this appear to be scabies?

    Have itchy bumps appearing in various spots over my body. Started around Feb 5th. The only allergy I have is to black/yellow caterpillars and I break out in severe hives.

    I have tried benadryl and it does not cause the bumps to go down. Itching is generally mild but gets worse from time to time. Break outs are sporadic.

    Bumps are located between fingers, on stomach, arms, wrists, buttocks, and pelvic region.

    I will include links to photos at the bottom of this post.

    I had concerns it was a result of eczema (it runs in my family) but then I had remembered that in October I had spent some time with a woman who at one point complained of unexplained itching (she did not have bed bugs). We did not have any sexual relations but I did spend a few nights sharing a bed with her.

    I stopped seeing her before the end of October and have been sexually active with another woman since December. I saw her recently and she was covered in a rash similar to mine and said she had it since October. I had shown no signs of infection until February. The woman i am currently seeing has shown zero signs of infection.

    It is my understanding that they can remain dormant for up to 6 weeks, but is this always the case?

    I have yet to see my doctor as I had issues retrieving a new health card (I am from Canada) but will be making an appointment asap. I would just like to get an idea of what I am dealing with before I go see my doctor. I have been treating the itchy areas with tea tree oil.
