Extremely itchy legs , not responding to Anti Histamine , without any redness , rash is highly suggestive of Scabies .

Most likely you may have Scabies .

It would be ideal for you , to have Permethrin cream , this is a topical cream that contains chemicals that kill scabies mites and their eggs which will manage your issue .

Apply it while going to bed , below neck in whole body and take bath early morning , repeat this for three consecutive days you will be cured .

Good luck .
