I woke up with very itchy hands at the middle of the nigh. I had to put moisturizing creams several time. Today I have itchy scalp and armpits with some redness. What is this?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

It is new

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
