Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

From the history it seems that you might have problems due to skin infestation due to scabies or due to bed bugs.

You might consult a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment of your condition.

In addition, you might also consider anti bed bug measures including washing all your clothes in hot water, and disinfecting your house.

I hope this helps.
