Itchy bumps on chest..

Okay, maybe someone on here might know what this is..

I've had these little white bumps all over my chest for the past month. A few of them are red, but mostly all of them are white. The problem is -- they are sooo itchy. I went to the derm. who at first thought it was acne, but what kind of acne would be this itchy???? The itchiness kept getting worse, so I went to my family doctor who thought it was contact dermatitis, so they prescribed me some steroid cream. This helped with the itchiness for a while (2 weeks) but then i actually did get acne, so i stopped the steroid cream. The acne is gone, but i am left with these intensely itchy bumps. I have been taking Benadryl every nite for the past week to help with the itchiness, but its becoming almost unbearable... I have no idea what could be causing this, therefore, i'm not sure what i should be doing to make it any better.

I have another appt with a different derm, but i didn't know if anyone had any ideas what this could be? Maybe you had something similiar to this?

Please help~!
