Cholinergic?: If he has itchy bumps also, then it is called cholinergic urticaria which flares up after the body gets heated up then cools off. This can often be prevented by taking an antihistamine such as zyrtec (cetirizine). It may go away by itself with time but is not a serious health issue. ...Read more

Antihistamine: Rash can be treated with an antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and topical hydrocortisone cream, but may require prednisone RX if needed.

What could cause severe itching on the sole of the foot and underarms? No visible rash

May be nerve...: Without a visible rash and/or break in the skin, the sensation of "itching" is nerve related. Keep track of what may be related to its onset - such as 1) did you eat something that triggered it?, 2) did you wear something that irritated the area?, 3) did you move a certain way that may have aggravated it?

Use the medications as directed, and if it doesn't improve or worsens, see your doctor. It might be another problem, requiring a different course of treatment. ...Read more
