Basically, I get itchy frequently. An area on my skin will become red in large patches and it's very itchy, sometimes unstoppable and you have to scratch.

When I scratch, small red spots/bumps appear.

Also, if I'm near a fire to keep warm (etc) these itchy, red patches appear.

I've tried Aqueous Cream, E45 and other similar large tubs of white cream of the same variety. This sometimes helps.

This has been driving me insane for about a month and my girlfriend for about a month and a half. Our friends can get similar symptons if they're around us for a prolonged period of time or come into contact with our skin multiple times.

This is EVERYWHERE. All parts of my body - legs, head, **m, neck, back, arms, stomach, chest, underarms, feet, heel, even genitals.

My girlfriend and I have been to the doctors 6 times between us and been told different things all 6 times.

If you have an idea as to what this could be, PLEASE let me know!

Thank you.
