It seems that both of you have been scratching really bad that it leaves scar. Itching by itself does not leave scar. You should come see a local doctor to be evaluated and treated. Either an allergist or a dermatologist would be able to help you. ...Read more

See dermatologist: If the itching is so bothersome, you should consult a dermatologist since dry skin is apparently not the issue.

Scabies?: Good evening, itching all over the body, with small bumps which when squeezed discharges pus, is highly suggestive of scabies. Scabies is an infection by itch-mite which needs to be treated by a physician. If not treated, it can be there for many days and make your life miserable. It is a condition which is very easy to treat. Please see your doctor. ...Read more
