Itchy, blotchy red skin.

I have been having trouble with itchy skin since the weather has changed. I'm assuming it's some type of allergy and have not seen a doctor yet. It only happens at night before going to bed and when it begins it feels like a bite from a small insect. It affects my toes, legs, stomach, arms and the palms of my hands. What happens is that I begin scratching and then redness appears on my skin. It doesn't look like hives except on my stomach. Everywhere else is just blotches of red skin. I'm beginning to become more concerned because I have tried everthing (such as changing laundry detergents, soap and lotion; changing bedding regularly and disinfecting mattresses with lysol as well as throughly vaccuming my mattress to remove possible mites. Has anyone had anything similar happen to them?
