Thanks for providing additional information.
I understand your concern and it's my pleasure to help you in every aspect.
As per your description,potential differential diagnosis may include Eczema,Urticaria,deranged liver function and renal function this causes itching all over the body due to raised bilirubin levels in the blood.
I will suggest that you undergo a routine blood test like complete blood count, blood sugar levels, both fasting and post prandial, and liver function tests,Absolute Eosinophil count,Renal function test for further evaluation.
And a clinical examination by a dermatologist should be considered.
In the meantime you can try tablet Allegra( fexofenadine 180 mg) a day and application of moisturizing lotion like vaseline lotion,calamine lotion thrice a day.
You could apply it immediately after bath on wet skin itself.
Drink plenty of water.
Wear cotton clothes.
You can try oatmeal bath.
Hope this helps.
