I woke up this morning with small bumps all around my body. There are seven, from when I last counted, and I freaked out. I thought I had caught a case of body lice, so I googled it and on the health forum I had landed on they said it could easily be misdiagnosed, because Scabies bites and lice bites are almost identical. I checked out Scabies, and it seems to be what I have. There doesn't seem to be anymore bumps, which almost resemble pimples. But I've never had a pimple in my life, and they were in places other than my face, where I had no bites. Do you think this is Scabies? I thought about bed bugs, but I checked my sheets, pillows, etc. and found no adults. I checked the seems of my clothes for nits and found none. I'm going to go see my doctor is this continues, but I'm just puzzled how I caught it in the first place. I just want to know if anyone here has had Scabies, knows if this sounds like mites and knows an efficient treatment.
EDIT: I just washed my hands, and my right hand, around my knuckles, surged with heat and a rash emerged. Same on my left, and them two more bites showed. The rashes left quickly, but the bites are still there. Now I have nine bites.
