It is possible that all the symptoms you reported may be related to cholinergic urticaria. Avoiding the triggers might help you to reduce the itching.

Drug therapy includes regularly taking antihistamines. Tricyclic antidepressants such as doxepin also are often potent H1 and H2 antagonists and may have a role in therapy, although side effects limit their use.
