Welcome to ehealthforum

Itchiness which is spreading on different areas can be due to dermatitis,fungal infection,allergy etc.Since it has been spreading and also is present since long duration it requires a careful evaluation and treatment.
Apply calamine lotion in the itchy skin.
Consider visiting a Physician earliest for examination so that a proper treatment can be given after evaluation as it needs a clinical examination.

Take Care!
