Itchy, pimple-like rash. Help!

Hi. About 5 days ago, I started itching on the back of my calf. I felt 2 bumps and just assumed that they were mosquito bites. Now, these bumps are on my legs and arms and they itch like CRAZY! They look like little pimples, almost what your skin looks like when you have goose bumps only just a teensy bit bigger. Some of them look like they are filled with fluid, kinda like a whitehead. I have taking Atarax, Benedryl, and 2 types of creams and after a couple of hours, they itch like crazy. Has anyone ever had a rash like this before? Any suggestions to get the itch/rash to go away???

Re: Itchy, pimple-like rash. Help!

I don't know if we have the same thing, but it sounds like it.
I went to the beach this past Tuesday and when we were coming back, I started itching and itching like crazy. I don't know if there was anything at the beach, because I remember I had started scratching before we went...but, it got really crazy after the trip back.
My body isn't quite covered with red bumps, as they are spread apart, but they itch and itch and I feel like going crazy scratching them. Right now I have cortisone cream on them, and I tried taking Benadryl Allergy tablets; but the itching is still there. I have also tried Calamine lotion, and even thought it stops for a little, the itching grows and grows.
I feel like a hundred small parasites are burrowing under my skin; and when I think about it I want to puke.

If we DO have the same problem, I would love to hear what got rid of your itching and what it was. There are so many possibilities, as I was reading. Swimmer's Itch, Sea Lice, scabies...etc.
