For about a month now I have been itching pretty much all over. I thought it might be an allergic reaction so I switched detergent, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, what I use to wash my body, bedding, washed all clothing, etc. Nothing. Checked for bed bugs, nope.

My itch is usually the worst when I wake up, at night and when I'm sitting still or laying. I have the urge to itch, but there are no redness or bumps until AFTER I start itching. I itch on my arms, shoulder blades, bra line, pant line, stomach, chest, inner thighs and calves..and now spreading to my neck, ears and hair line. I rarely itch at work, I'm guessing because I am moving constantly.

I didn't start itching until after I stayed at a friend's house in the same bed. He had the itches too and the doctor told him it was heat rash. I have tried lotions and creams.

The bumps I do get after itching are small, red because of the itching and usually in a spread out area where I was itching. They usually go away after I haven't itched them in awhile.

Also, my hands and feet itch. I believe its eczema on my hands, which doesn't bother me and on my feet I itch them so bad on the tops they have scabbed in small parts. I also found 3 small yellowish clear blister on the arch of my foot.

When I take a warm/hot shower, any area that itches or has itch burns (but feels good?). Also the same with my hands but doesn't feel as good. Also its starting to be accompanied by the crawly skin feeling.

Can anyone explain my itchiness?!?! Any suggestions, I just want to not itch anymore, ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY.
