Bumps with puss not scabies told it's exscama but I don't think it is it hurts and itches n it's sometimes yellow puss and white?
Some possibilities: Small pustules like you are describing might represent an infection of the hair follicles in the involved areas. If they are small in size and superficial (shallow) then you might try keeping the area clean and applying triple antibiotic ointment (Neosporin, etc.) twice per day until better. If it persists or worsens or if yo see spreading redness then you should see a doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more
Can you die from scabies? My daughter may have scabies she is a virgin and she doesn't want to go to the doc the bumps only appear when she itches
Scabie is not lethal: However, I would really encourage that she see the physician as her condition doesn't sound like scabies. Scabies looks like lines of burrows on skin made with little mounds or blisters. They cause itching which is often worse at night. Although they can be anywhere on skin they like going into skin folds (waistline, axilla, breasts, between fingers, feet, wrists, knees, elbows, buttocks & genitals). ...Read more

I got bite by a mosquito I think. On my boob, still itches looks like a bruise. This is from Saturday night.
Possible tick bite: Sometimes a 'bruise' like rash can develop after a tick bite- so I would advise you to show this to a doctor who could help you. Both ticks and mosquitoes inject saliva when they bite, so the result can be an itchy spot later on. Ticks like skin folds, so not sure if this bite is closer to your arm pit or something where it would be a good spot to hide? Ticks (nymphs) can be VERY SMALL too. ...Read more

Not sure but the: Only way to find out is monitor it to make sure it doesn't evolve normally and go away. Bruises tend to enlarge briefly for 1-2 days, then change color from red/black to green/yellow, then start to fade.
