Itching: May have different causes and is not necessarily secondary to a skin condition but rather an internal condition. An example is liver disease. You should see your primary fr a general check up.

Re: rash: This might be an allergic reaction, however it's important to visit your primary care physician to have routine labs checked and make sure that no medications are triggering these symptoms. Might also see an allergist for skin testing and/or patch testing to evaluate for contact dermatitis.

Have it re-evaluated: There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Other things: Make sure his liver function is ok. There are rare liver /gall bladder problems that can cause uncontrollable itching. In addition, there are some behavioral conditions that do the same. This is despite the suggestion of an allergic problem.

Blotches and pimples: It is difficult to tell what is the cause of these lesions without seeing them. It would be in your best interest to have a doctor take a look since you have had them for 3 months.

Generalized Itch: A generalized itch without a rash can be due to something as minor as dry skin but also may signal an internal problem such as kidney problems, liver problems, iron deficiency, hyperthyroidism/hypothyroidism or even some cancers. During the winter its best to limit length and temperature of showers, soap use and immediately apply a good moisturizer.

Dermatitis: Possible friction from sex can cause an irritation/inflammation of his skin, or he could be allergic to any lubricating gels or perfumes you may use. He may have an underlying minor tinea cruris (jock itch) that is getting aggrevated during/after sex. If persists, have him see a dr. To properly diagnose the area. Good luck.
