I've had terrible itch all over my body (it starts itching,lasts not more than an then changes location) for 10 months now. At first it would get blanched but now it doesn't, it looks normal, my skin just gets red. I've been to doctors and they diagnose me with Atopic Dermatitis (but my skin isn't dry at all). I'm on antihistamines which help but it gets bad when I miss them. I've tried gluten-,dairy-,nuts (all sorts of allergens) free diet but they don't make difference. Nothing I've tried helps (incl. doctors' advices). I've got sick and tired of it and being "dependent" on medication really isn't helping me. I've researchd this condition quite a bit but I haven't found anything. I would love to visit a professional but currently they don't seem to be helping.

General Q and A Answer A64797
Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
There are many causes of generalized itching.
I would suggest you to have random blood sugar,
liver function tests,renal function tests and ultrasound abdomen to rule out systemic disorder.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
