There : There are many possibilities including a drug rash, a viral exanthem, scabies, eczema, bites, psoriasis, and many others. Hard to tell without a picture, unfortunately. I would recommend you consider seeing a dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment options. There is a picture of scabies on the link below. I hope that helps!

Need to see to know.: These lesions would likely need to be examined and more history obtained to be able to provide you with useful input about the diagnosis or possible treatment.
