Weird Skin Itchyness

A few months ago (Late July / Early August) I was in Georgia and Texas on business. As i was walking through the Atlanta Airport, My hands became swollen and my body started itching. Out of nowhere. I thought at first it was heat rash, and let it go. It got to the point where my lips were swollen my whole body itched and i had a visable rash with white blister like bumps in them. I ignored it and drank more water (since i thought i had heat rash my brain said "Drink more, sweat more") I got home (northern Idaho) and it went away just as fast as it started

Fast forward to last night (sunday)
I was watching baseball and out of nowhere, it started up again, within about 4 hours, the rash and bumps were back, so i took some tylenol pm and knocked my self out.

Monday; still there, i tried switching soap/shampoo and had my SO wash the sheets while i was at work. Still nothing, it has calmed down a little, but it still itches like crazy

I haven't had a chance to see a Dermo MD yet as i have been slammed at work

Any ideas would be appreciated.
