We went through it. Our entire family had it. We itched like crazy, mostly at night, in places like near the butt crack, inside of the elbows, behind the knees. It is extremely contagious. We never saw any kind of bumps. The doctor will scrape a little between your fingers and check if you have it. The meds are ridiculously expensive. It's a lotion that you put on your entire body, from head to toe. You have to be sure to not miss any spot. Oh, try not to scratch (near impossible) because it makes it even worse. It's the bugs feces that gets you itching, and when you scratch, it just moves the feces deeper into the skin.
