Hi Folks - im 34yrs old male and since this morning my skin has itched all over my body, all random areas. I will scratch this area then a blotch of red bumps will appear.

Once the bumps appear it will itch less, then bumps will go away about 20 minutes later.

Then another spot on body will start to itch

wash/rinse repeat

I have never itch skin problem before

any help?

Sudden itchness in random places
I have the same exact problem. I have never had this problem before, but all of a sudden a part of my body will start to itch. I will scratch it most times repeatedly & then another part of my body will itch. weltz will appear & shortly thereafter the itching will stop & the weltz go away but this happens frequently throughout the day & in random places over my body, mostly my back, arms, neck, boobs, buttocks, & legs. My feet itch a lot lately too. My husband swears I do not have athletes feet, & I used the sprays but they still itch too. But that would not explain the rest of my body itching. Any help would be appreciated.

I too have this itch without rash problem.

The best relief i get is from an Anti-Histamine tablet I got from a Pharmacist. It is called PHENERGAN. I'm not sure if this name can be published and I'm sorry I don't know the Chemical names involved.
I still would like to know the cause.
Hope this helps
