Depends: Your condition may be seborreic dermatitis or scalp psoriasis. These conditions are at either end of the spectrum and psoriasis is generally more severe w silvery scale and redness. Both conditions do best with rx shampoo like clobetasol to reduce inflammation. If its seb derm, an rx anti fungal shampoo is also good. Otc zinc or selenium shampoo are good but rx are better.See 1 more doctor answer

Yes: It is possible to be allergic to chemicals in a soap or detergent. If the areas of the itchy spots match the areas you washed, then it is likely. Treatment is to avoid re-exposure. A hydrocortison skin cream (OTC) can help, or if it's worse, see your doctor for a stronger prescription.See 1 more doctor answer
Ever since october last year, I've gotten these itchy red spots. They started at the base of my wrist and has spread. Now it's all over. What could it?
A rash for 4 months: What are you waiting for? See a DR if you can. Is cost an issue? If it is, find a free clinic. Your description lacks enough detail for any kind of guess.
Chickenpox: That's just a wild guess. I'm hopeful that you would have already received your chickenpox vaccination which would make this very unlikely. However, it's best for you to go see your family doctor for an evaluation & diagnose along w/appropriate treatment. It would help if you knew whether you were exposed to someone else w/similar symptoms. Or had your vaccination records available.

Antihistamines: Hives tend to move and migrate, come an go, are itching, and usually don't last for more than 24 hours. 1st generation antihistamines will work the fastest, such as benadryl (diphenhydramine). For longer lasting effect, taking a daily 2nd generation antihistamine such as zyrtec, claritin, or allergra will be helpful. If they persist, seeing an allergist would be helpful for prescription medications and work up.
