Been up all night itching my whole arm, when I itch patches

Customer Question
Been up all night itching...
Been up all night itching my whole arm, when I itch white patches appear like a mosquito bite, some big some small. I applied vinegar and the itching finally stopped. I take a blood thinner and just changed washer soaps. I can't moisturize my skin with anything since it always ends up itching.//Help!
JA: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?
Customer: This happens from time to time since I was a kid but nothing like this. I do have a lot of hangnails since I work outside all the time..some of these are open..I wear gloves. no change in nails
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No
