Since having my baby 4.5 months ago I developed flesh/red coloured

Customer Question

Since having my baby 4.5 months ago I developed flesh/red coloured little bumps all over my forearms that itch badly, the past few weeks they have spread up my arms, onto my chest, shoulders and back and are also itchy. Now today I have woken up with loads of itchy red spots on the underside of my arms that itch. I have been getting night sweats the past few weeks. I have been treated for scabies that hasnt done anything and antihistamines do not work. What could it be? I am worried it is something serious. I have not come into contact with anything different that could cause this.
