They appeared like bumps and the itching happens when they start to appear. Then I use steroids to stop it. I am taking Zoloft antidepressant, Nebilet for blood pressure and some vitamins. This condition is not running in the family. Yesterday big one appeared in the base of the penis. With the use of steroids it went smaller. I went to a doctor here and he said it as eczema due to stress. Is it true?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
According to your history and the photographs (attachment removed to protect patient identity) it seems to be scabies which is a mite infection affecting the skin.
I recommend you to apply Permethrin lotion 30 ml on the entire body from neck downwards to the toes excluding the face and head. It is to be applied at bedtime and in the morning you can have a bath.
Along with this all your clothing, bed sheet and blanket should be washed in 3-4 days duration in hot water.
You have to apply this Permethrin lotion again for 10 days in the same manner as mentioned above.
Along with this take tablet Ivermectin 18 mg single tablet stat .This is for 15 days.
Besides this for itching take antihistaminic like tablet Levocetirizine once or twice daily depending on the itching.
On the bumps you can apply corticosteroid cream like Clobetasol propionate twice daily. It will take around three weeks to get resolved.
