Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. I understand your concern. As per details, the most likely possibility for your symptoms is a condition of skin called Scabies . It is infection of skin caused by Sarcoptes scabei var hominis. It is characterised by itchy fluid filled lesions and red colored bumps on body. It is a communicable disease which may be transmitted person to another via skin to skin contact, through the fomites, common bedding. In such cases, I prefer to advise topical permethrin 5 percent cream over body. You may take antihistaminics like levocetrizine for symptomatic relief. Visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Stay healthy
