Pustules: these are commonly called boils, some are superficial and will drain on their own. Warm compresses help this. Others are deeper and require antibiotics. If increasing in size and pain over a 24 hour period, see a doctor for antibiotics or drainage.

Cannot see these: And therefore cannot diagnose them, but if you think you may have been exposed to HIV you should go and get tested in the near future. This is a treatable disease, best when diagnosed early.

Itchy Bumps: Corticosteroids. Your doctor can prescribe steroid creams, like hydrocortisone, that are more potent than over-the-counter creams to help stop the itch and heal your skin. However, this depends on the cause: allergy, folliculitis, contact dermatitis, eczema, or other.

Viral?: This may be from a viral or drug reaction. If the bumps come and go within hours, try taking antihistamine. If they lasts over 24 hrs, try topical hydrocortisone. If the problem worsens or persists for for more 2 weeks. see your doctor.

Used ground flax seed daily until broke out with itchy red bumps on hand, leg and arm..I did scratch and caused terrible sores..  Swell now on my face?

Stop flaxseed: This may be coincidental although it is possible that you may be allergic to flaxseed. If the problem continues after 10 days off of flaxseed, it is unlikely to be related to it. The sores may be from an infection or something more serious. See your doctor soon.

Likely chiggers: Chiggers (red bugs) are common in the late spring & generally present in tall grass or weeds. Once on the body they crawl around looking for a blood meal & cause a painless bite.If they hit a barrier like a belt line they often bite along that line. Within a day the body reacts with itching & the red small flat wound sites. Treatment focuses on reducing the itching.Scratching can lead to infection.

Doesn't sound like: shingles or chicken pox. It can just be viral rash, or hives of acute urticaria, all can be related to viral infection, if antihistamines, salt water gargles don't work in few days, or if symptoms worsen, see your doctor, good luck

Needs evaluation: These are all sites that likely itch & your passive scratching could plant a number of germs. From your description your body is likely colonized with an aggressive staph that has inflamed some hair follicles &will need prescription meds to kill off. It may be something else.The only way to know what to do is have it looked at.
