I bet you don't: The first step in the workup for generalized itching is to change whatever you're using to wash your clothes. If this doesn't provide an answer, look at the distribution and your relation to other exposures, especially light. I trust your skin is normal and there's no evidence of ectoparasites. Hodgkin's is VERY low on the differential diagnosis without a mass / fever / wt loss / sweats.
