Small itchy bumps all over body

Hello all,

I have been searching all over the web for what these bumps on my skin might be and I have been having no luck.

I did find some info, but people are saying it is just because of the changing of the seasons and it is caused by abnormal sweating. Medical term I found for this was "polymorphous light eruption". I did not get these bumps until sometime in August. Funny thing is my girlfriend also got them around the same time. Everything I read says they are non contagious, so why would we both get them?

Any other suggestions on what they could be? I have them on my hands, fingers, arms, chest, stomach, legs, right below the butt cheek and now I noticing them on my private area.


Edit: Another medical term I found it could be is Pompholyx.

Just in case anyone else has the same problem. I ended up going to the doctors and it ended up being scabies. I have no idea where I could have gotten them from.

I noticed them starting around my hands. The first place the doctor looked was in between my fingers. I did have a few there. Then I started getting them on my arms and stomach area. After that it was on my groin area. That's when I called it quits and went to the doctor. I thought it was poison ivy since I had it the year before, but it ended up not being that.
