Scared it may be an STD?? HELP, PLEASE !!!

I started haveing really itchy skin on my legs, inner thigh, butt, under my arms, and on my chest & waisteline area. There wasn't a rash or anything, my skin just itched which cause a few little red bumps appear where the scratched area is. They fade out if I don't scratch them, but my skin itches everyday. Well, I started bathing in Aveeno Bath Soothing Oatmeal Formula, and it eases it sometimes for a few hours then starts itching again. Then, 2 weeks later after the initial itching, I got a red bump on the foreskin shaft of my penis. It wasn't painful just a little itchy & kept getting dry & flaky, so When I put Moisterizer on it, it would kinda burn. So today, I have Itchy skin all over, kinda has the same feeling as a mild case of chiggers or something, ya know..and my penis still has a few red spots on the shaft & seems sensitive sometimes & burns after applying moisterizer, Still itches on occasion. Sometimes my skin will itch badly in a certain spot then it'll fade sometimes that same day, then it'll itch bad in a different spot. Can't figure it out. I've used LANACANE / Oatmeal baths, and Moisterizers, but it's still putting me into misery & scare. The bumps on my penis don't really have a head. they're just red, kinda itchy sometimes & sensitive...SCrotum itches slightly on occasion...PLEASE DOCTOR, SOMEBODY, ENLIGHTEN ME, PLEASE !!!

You need to see a doctor.

Re: Scared it may be an STD?? HELP, PLEASE !!!

dont panic, this could be scabies, its not nice but many people get it. its just like head lice, very common and probably easier to catch. scabies can have the same symptoms as some std's, it seems to cause skin infections, in any area, even genitals. i know a few people that suffered this and were too embarrassed to see a doctor, the infection got worse and they did regret it. if you went to a chemist they could possibly diagnose it, or you could just try scabies treatment if you are worried about going to the doctor, it is just a cream that u rub in, u will know almost instantly as the itching will stop. it sounds very familiar though. dont worry and let me know if i am right, i am getting good at diagnosing symptoms. goodluck sweety and all the best in the future
