They look like scabies

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
What’s that

A contagious, intensely itchy skin condition caused by a tiny, burrowing mite.

Scabies is contagious and spreads quickly through close physical contact in a family, school, or nursing home.

The most common symptom of scabies is intense itching in the area where the mites burrow.

Scabies can be treated by killing the mites and their eggs with medication called Permethrin 5% ( needs prescription) that's applied from the neck down and left on for eight hours. The mites can also be killed using oral medications.
