Intense itching

The itching started a year and a half ago. First, it was my arm pits. They would itch so bad I would wake up in the middle of the night and have to scratch them til they were raw. Eventually it stopped, but soon enough I would scratch my arms or legs and bumps would appear. I scratched my arms once and the lines where I had scratched were raised and bumpy all the way up my arm. It happens on my legs and thighs, too. When I'm in bed at night(they never itch like that at other times) if I move around a lot they become so itchy I have to keep scratching and bumps appear, like hives. Now it's on my neck and cheeks. I scratch and it feels as it I'm broken out on both cheeks and down to my neck, again likes hives. When it started I thought it would just go away on its own or it was just irritation but it's only gotten worse.

I already know I don't have bedbugs.
