Hey guys, I'm hoping maybe someone could shed some light as to what the **** it is I'm suffering from..

Basically, I'm getting these goosebump-like itchy spots on my arms, mostly on the underside, my hands, inner thighs, hips, torso, and sometimes my feet. They're REALLY itchy, and hot water seems to agitate them even more (even though it feels insanely good when the hot water hits) and I'm almost positive it's not an allergy, because an allergist told me it wasn't.. It's not scabies, because a doctor told me it wasn't.. I was prescribed a steroid called Prednisone for about two weeks, but it only helped momentarily, and once I was off them they came back and itched and spread even more. I'm fairly new to this forum, so I'm not sure if I can include photos, but I'll see after I post this thread.

My last resort is to go see a holistic doctor on Thursday morning. Hopefully he'll find something the other doctors didn't. I've been using tea tree oil soap to cleanse, but it doesn't really do all that much. My diet hasn't changed, nor has my detergents, I don't really hang around pets, my brothers who I live with are experiencing NOTHING like what I have.. It's so mind boggling and frustrating. I'm starting to meditate but that does nothing. Lotions help the itch for about ten minutes and then it's back to square one. UGH. It's horrible. I don't wish this upon ANYONE.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :(
