My whole body is itchy no matter what. I have used aveeno (oatmeal) lotion many times daily and I still itch everywhere. My skin is soft, not dry. Relief?

Many causes: Generalized itching (pruritis), in the absence of any visible abnormalities of the skin, can be due to occult (hidden) systemic illness such as malignancies and liver/biliary disorders. However, often times no definite cause is found. Anxiety, stress and psychiatric disorders can often cause itching. Medications can cause itching.

Getting allergy testing done next week. Since coming off antihistamines I've noticed how extreeeemely itchy my scalp/body is. Using Aveeno (oatmeal) is helping.

Dry skin: If the allergy skin testing is solely for itching without any nasal, eye. Or respiratory symptoms, I believe that the yield is quite low. Your response to Aveeno suggests that dry skin is likely the cause and would recommend that you apply the lotion <3 minutes after bathing (avoid scented soap as well) to see if this helps. ...Read more
