Can you have : someone check you for lice? That would be my first concern. After that, you have to think dermatitis of some kind (Huge work up will require doctor visit). The nits are easier to spot than the bugs especially in dark hair and they are usually close to the scalp. You should invest in the combing gel because the glue they use to secure the nits is like concrete. ...Read more

My boyfriend has been getting little itchy bumps that turn into huge red sores it has been happening for a while now and they take forever to go away. What could this be?

Do not touch!: First and foremost answer: herpes (HSV). No direct contact! Highly contagious. Sorry, IMHO not even barrier method/condoms can and do break. Get counseling (call your OB-GYNE or other), and him checked, know what you're dealing with. Not my specialty here. Sure, allergy to metals, adhesives, poison ivy, etc can cause itchy rashes that bubble up, but since he's your boyfriend, first things first. ...Read more

Could be...........: It could be something called geographic tongue, especially if they are not sore or uncomfortable in any way. If it is that, it is benign and nothing to worry about. However, without seeing you personally, there is no way to know and it could be many other conditions.
