Me & my boyfriend been having itching all over body for months now , it itches so bad that it leaves ugly scars?

Something in my house makes me itch like crazy, all over even my private area. Even a guest, started itching all over. We were on my couch air con on.
Anxiety: Itching also arouses itching on another person. However if your house is a/c , one must consider dry skin as an issue. Try applying a moisturizer immediately after bathing to see if this helps. If the itching only occurs on one couch, stay away from it for a few days to see if the itching continues. If no, then the couch needs be fumigated or discarded. ...Read more

Not herpes: Herpes doesn't behave at all like this. Neither does any other STD. Maybe a localized allergy or other dermatitis. See a doctor. If the "red bump" is present only now and then, talk to your doctor about arranging an immediate visit (without an advance appointment) next time it appears. ...Read more
