I have the tiny liquid filled blisters that don't hurt but do itch quite crazy and if you pop them they hurt. mine seems to be seasonal. doctors won't do anything about it. as for scabies...the way I understand it, those are extremely painful and not just because you itch.

For me it's only painful if I scratch until it bleeds, and then the sore/scab becomes painful to the touch, more than likely due to infection. I've started using Neosporin antibiotic ointment on my open sores that are the result of scratching.

I haven't had the liquid filled tiny bumps this time around. I get the little bumps, but they don't have liquid, and only bleed if scratched excessively. Also, some seem to be on my hair follicles, leading me to believe that folliculitis is one of my symptoms of scabies... along with eczema (which I've had since I was a child)

The only reason I think it is scabies for the second year is because of the trails. Just as the year before, there are trails/burrows on the webs between my fingers and even on my wrists this time.

Do you have scabies or just a skin condition?

It seems to have been seasonal for me as well. As soon as winter rolls around, the past two years I have the symptoms of scabies. The scabies treatment worked last year, and I only hope it works this year as well.

Well, as my life goes, I say something and the opposite happens.

I now have my first liquid filled bump on my ring finger, after saying last night that I haven't gotten them this time around.

the truth is the vast majority of people who are on this forum don't have mites and you can't cure something you don't have. you don't have to have all the symptoms.

I am pretty convinced it's scabies again. I've used my lindane lotion on my hands for the past few days, and my itching is subsiding but it is still there. Also, my hands are drying up along with the trails. I only see 2-4 trails at the moment when I had 10-15 before.

Also, I didn't get the liquid filled bumps until after I had treated myself for scabies last year.

My guess is that the scabies are in your environment and you were never totally clear. They can live for ages in furniture on skin debris etc. As the winter becomes more dry, they come out to search for the nearest moist environment- you.

That would not surprise me as I live in a basement. Clearly not the most sanitary living conditions. Definitely dusty and I've heard of the scabies mite being similar to a dust mite.

I could move upstairs. But I don't want to spread it.

And financially speaking, I couldn't technically "move".

I am having the same problems. I have eczema and I developed this very itchy thing on my abdomen, back, feet, arms, thigh and waist. It makes me feel bad :( my flawless hands are now full of blisters :( I wear short sleeves in the office and now I have to buy long sleeves to cover my skin :( I feel so bad. This started 3rd week of January, it spreads so fast, my back itches like it's on fire. First I had these tiny deep sitted water bumps on my fingers which I poke with needle so the water woulkd come out, the slighly raised deep sitted water bump is actually very itchy. Then after a week, my right arm started to itch (hives appeared). I always have hives on my arms, but those hive did not have a tiny water bubble on top, the hives that I just had, have a tiny water bubble thing which when scratched, blisters :( now my hands looked awful. My side is really terrible. Full of dark spots due to scartching. When I attemp to sleep I can not sleep anymore, because I itch like a bitch.

I drink a lot. I have read that too much alcohol will let your bilirubin stay on the surface of your skin and cause itchiness. I'm not so expert, but somehow I read it somewhere. So I controlled my drinking. Infact, I never drunk this weekend. My skin looks awful now. In my line of work where skin is very important, I feel dumped :( I'm a man by the way.

My symptoms:

1. Itchy feet
2. Deep sitted water bubbles on fingers
3. Pin like rashes on the hand
4. Very itchy back with rashes
5. Penis not infected (as of now, good lord I hope it won't)
6. Knees infected, elbows looked like I have eczema (crusting)
7. Very itchy left side of the scalp and back side of the scalp

By the way I have seb derm on my face for so long. It cleared after I use L'oreal's white perfect cream. I bought a set (cleanser, day/night cream) it's kind of good. So you might wanna try it if you have seb derm.

I feel bad, why I have to deal with this. I threw my mattress because it's infested with bed bugs. I thought what I have are bed bug bites. But my rash are not swolen until I scratch them. Bed bug bites are red and swolen and very itchy. Oh well, this this is Nature's joke. I dislike myself now, I look dirty and I developed a feeling of wanting to be alone. Good thing my face is not affected (I hope the opposite will not happen the next day) I feel so sad and I am emotuonally drain. This itchiness has taken away my happiness, my life.

Hey toolonghelp,

Any update on this issue? This is literally the exact same set of symptoms I've had for the last year, and I'm feeling at my wits end. Also did a scabies treatment - although I'm worried maybe it didn't totally take.

But then again, it'd make a lot of sense if it's DH, too.

Any updates would be much appreciated!
